    Hey All,

    Ordered a Thrive from Amazon. I am getting the 16gb model.

    I have read as many threads as I can, as many reviews as possible, and am happy with my choice. This will be my first tablet, although I have an android phone.

    Many have said not to activate the security software... what about any other software that is preinstalled? Any others to avoid as well?

    Is there a limit to the size of the SD card? I"ve read about people using 64gb, 16gb, 128gb....

    Is there any reason to not use my existing gmail on this device? Should I set up another account? I'm sure they could be linked to be able to receive email, but didn't know if this would help with privacy or not.

    I appreciate any and all advice,


    Oh yeah, does anyone use one of the document programs and a keyboard to compose letters and such? Didn't know how well this would work on the device. I'm getting one to replace my dead laptop.

    I am new to the Android tablet World and just got a Toshiba Thrive. i am wondering what you mean by " DONT UPDATE USING Toshiba service Center!". What is this? Is that a link on the tablet itself? Is this used to upgrade the build or to 3.2? I am not understanding. I am Windows (and a Mac person) and I am on automatic when computer like machines tell me to update.
    Is this advice based on wanting to root the tablet later? Thank you!
