  • When you’re on the phone, press the power button to lock the phone and turn off the touchscreen.

  • After initially touching your finger on the screen, use the magnifier to precisely move and locate the cursor.

  • When downloading updates, new apps, or for faster Web browsing, activate the Droid 2’s WiFi.
