    Root Turning off 2.3 update.

    I am giving my old Droid Incredible phones to my kids to essentially function as an iPod touch (use WiFi only, download game apps, play music, etc.). My kids are 8 and 6 so pretty much they want them to play games. I have done factory resets on both and they were never rooted. I want to turn...

    Voice Dialing - Vlingo rocks!

    This is by far the best app I have downloaded. The stock voice dialer absolutely sucked. It would work with a few of my contacts, but never seem to work with important contacts (like my wife). Vlingo has not missed any contacts yet. I also like that you only have to tap one button.

    Accessories Seidio Innocase pics with DI on website

    Although it is still listed as coming soon, the Innocase now has a picture with the DI in it. Looks like they kept the contour of the case the same as the back as the DI (a good thing IMHO).

    What is a good anti-virus/anti-spyware/anti-hacking into my DI app?

    Never mind, found answer on another thread. Seems that attacks are rare. Feel like a kid learning to ride a bike with all this Android stuff.

    Apps that are a "need" for the DI

    I went to appbrain and also researched previous threads. Specific to the DI and since some people have had it for over a week now, are there any apps that are a definite need? I'm not talking about Pandora, Google Sky Maps, games, etc. I saw where people where going to get Astro File Manager...
