Droid X Tricks to Remember

Part of the Droid X For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Here is an assortment of handy time-saving tricks to keep in mind to boost your productivity (or your hopeless addiction to your new Droid X phone).

  • Dictation! You can speak into the phone as an effective and quick alternative to using the onscreen keyboard.

  • Use the Swype keyboard for rapid text entry.

  • Press and hold a key on the Multi-Touch Keyboard to confirm that your stubby fingers have selected the correct character.

  • Quickly put the Droid X into Vibration mode by pressing the down volume button until the phone jiggles.

  • 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 or new apps, or for faster Web browsing, activate the Droid’s Wi-Fi.

  • Use the Search soft button to look for items on the phone, on the Internet, or in a specific app.
