Q: General Android phone FAQ's?
A: Here is a thread on general Android Phone FAQ's

Q: How can I improve my battery life?
A: First off, you should read this post: Atrix 2 Battery Life.
You do not have to follow all of the tips/suggestions, but the advice is sound and will help. Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life. It is best to find the compromise that works best for you and what you want most out of your phone.

Q: Are there any Atrix 2 Tips & Tricks?
A: This thread has Tips & Tricks for the Atrix 2

What are some of the problems people have with their Atrix 2?
A: Click show:
1. Many users report problems with fast Class 10 SD cards. Class 6 cards seem to work better with the Atrix 2.

2. There are many problems connecting an Atrix 2 to a PC via USB and attempting to mount the SD card as a mass storage device. Solution: Settings | Applications | Manage Applications | On SD card. Identify any applications that may be installed on the SD card and move them to internal storage.

3. Some users have experienced very poor WiFi connections even when the Atrix 2 is adjacent to the WiFi Access Point. Connections hang and are ultimately dropped. Solution: Go into your router configuration screens and disable WMM. I understand the TI WiFi chipset drivers have an interoperability problem with some WWM implementations.
Q: I have a question about how to do something around the forums.
A: Here is a FAQ devoted entirely to that: Android Forums FAQ

Q: What is root?/What does being rooted mean?
