It's certainly much easier than my old T-Mobile Windows phone, which involved using a Bluetooth dial up modem.
So, I had an extra Bluetooth dongle and put it on my office computer, figuring I can tether if the cable goes out. Not only could I not get it working, but I somehow broke it on my laptop too. I'm going to try uninstalling and unpairing everything I can think of, but I'm kinda pissed.
EDIT fixed now, on both. I have no idea what the problem was.

I thought Droid X was supposed to have Swype, but I don't see an option for it. I'm not sure I understand how it works.
When I picked up the model in the store and tried to type, I got gibberish. Perhaps this had Swype set up and I didn't know how to use it? I can type fine on mine, it's just slow.
I just figured out how to force my Sprint Hero to use Verizon's towers. Hello carrier choice.
AHA! Switched to Swype. So awesome!
Thanks to whoever mentioned that Chad Ochocinco app. Funny stuff on there.
I love the last.fm app, listen to the radio on it all the time. Cool that it is now a little bit closer to the site, but still not quite useful enough to really use like I would the site.
I need to get some more apps.
I will challenge my HTC EVO against your Android any day
Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
Well, the HTC EVO IS an Android phone, so, have fun with that.
Boooooo...just had my first total-pull-the-battery freeze up. Right before I was going to send a LONG text.
When I tested the X in store it had swype on it. Maybe it doesn't come pre programed with it and you have to buy the app. Dunno for sure.
As I said above (though maybe not clearly), I switched the KB to Swype. It's in settings.
Eat two dicks.
I tried uninstalling Handcent and reinstalling it but I am still getting two pop ups: 1 from Handcent, 1 from the native Messaging. [Note: I mean neither two (task bar) notifications nor two copies of each text; those are different issues]
I select Handcent as the default every chance I get and Messaging's defaults have all been cleared. Messaging's notifications have been turned off (I don't get task bar notifications, just pop ups.) And no, I have not rooted and as such cannot uninstall the native Messaging.
Up until now I have had Handcent's pop-up turned off... but that pop-up is half the reason to have Handcent; I like it reading texts to me, I like the quick reply space, etc.
I am going to try dealing with double pop ups for a while but I suspect it won't be that long until I just get rid of it again and keep it gone until I root.
Also in the other thread I have mentioned GalaxIR; that is now a "lite" type app and only allows you to play against the world on their servers for 5 minutes on, 30 minutes off. You can play the AI or against a close proximity friend via Bluetooth as much as you want, though. They do have GalaxIR Star as a paid app which gives you unlimited online gameplay. Neither version has ads.
I also just got Wordfeud so let me know if you want to play Scrabble (no TM.) This app is ad supported.
I also have just come across SystemPanel Lite, the free version of an app that is sort of a manual task killer, the fun part being that you can actually see things like Total CPU Time and Memory Usage for each app as well as monitor your overall usage and read the CPU clock and whatnot. Basically if you like playing with the performance tab of Windows Task Manager this app is for you. No ads.
I have an HTC Hero and i'm not too happy with it. The lagging alone makes me want to throw it against a wall sometimes. I had the same problems with the battery life, but I bought the seidio extended life battery, which makes it last long as a normal phone. All in all I wish I got a blackberry.
Froyo arrived for me.
You should get a message pop up telling you to restart your phone and an update is available and it will go through an install process, it's all pretty automatic. That's how the OTA update for 2.1 happened for me. I'm still waiting for the froyo update.
5 pages for Home, option for setting individual apps to automatic update in the market, improved features for the camera, new button at the bottom to show yr apps now has keys for phone and browser.
I have not seen how to install apps to the SD (I know the full System Panel I mentioned upthread'll do this) or Flash yet.
Also I am sorry, I can't imagine wanting a Blackberry. It must be very bad for you.
Seidio makes good stuff. I have a Droid case/car mount from them, mainly because they work together.
