comment What is an “Emergency Call,” and can I set number for it?
As an interesting and mostly on-topic point, you should always keep a spare cell phone charged in your glovebox, even if it isn't attached to a carrier contract. Every cell phone with a charge (in the US at least) is capable of dialing 911 even without a service contract. If your main phone dies and you get stuck somewhere you can still dial 911 this way.

comment Barcode scanning
Were you able to specify that it wasn't a barcode? Like was there an option to tell it you were entering a user ID or something? I seem to remember something like that.

comment Touchscreen triggered by cheek while on the phone?
@Marcel Lamothe - The Wikipedia page for your phone lists a proximity sensor as a hardware input, so I'd try to find out why that isn't working. It might be set to a sensitivity that you aren't triggering if you don't put it right against your head.

comment Why can't I use my iPhone Headphones with my HTC Thunderbolt?
You mean the mic on the phone itself won't work while the headphones are plugged in, right?

comment what does “auto-fit pages” do in the browser
@mhenry1384 - Again, totally dependent on the idea that I'm not associating the term and action improperly. :)

comment How do you move an app shortcut between launcher screens?
I'm lazy, I'll drag an icon from the far left to the far right just because I don't have to pick up my thumb more than once that way ;)

@Matt - dl-web.dropbox.com/get/Public/Droid%20Screenshots/2011-03-24/… The last option is just "09 Data Call Settings"

comment How can I access EPST on the Motorola Droid 1 (Verizon)?
Give me a few minutes and I'll post a screenshot or two. And since I've got your attention, can you give me more detail on what you were trying to accomplish? Near as I can tell enabling WAP would be redundant if you have a data plan on your phone, but I may be misinterpreting the (sparse) information I've found.

comment How to delete an app installed with Amazon Appstore?
@loneboat - This was actually the second thing I noticed about it. The first was how much it bugged me that you can't download a free app without turning on One-Click and therefore associating a CC# with your account. Super lame.

comment How do I change the function of the earphone button?
@Matt - I figured the security issue would extend beyond the physical phone itself. Imagine if you built a Bluetooth device with some kind of malicious app embedded on it and you could remap some physical button on the Bluetooth device to reboot the phone into recovery mode or something.

comment Recipients complain they receive Text Message from me with a half hour delay
@Amanda - I had that exact issue when I was on my parent's family plan years ago (they've been on AT&T since before they merged with Cingular) and I couldn't wait to get off AT&T.
