Just got TP2 - What to do first?

I just got my Sprint TP2. What should I do first? Im coming from a treo800w, so the tp2 is like a new world to me. I see some cleanup cabs, etc. Anyways, where do I start with this great device? What should I do immediately to get it ready for heavy usage and make it more productive?

Re: Just got TP2 - What to do first?

You will see many opinions here. Personally, I just started messing with the looks of the home screen by downloading some cabs. Then I looked for some useful software. I never did the cleanup. But everyone uses their device differently. Have fun and welcome to our community.

Re: Just got TP2 - What to do first?

Welcome aboard, get ready for a fun ride!! I would just get use to the stock functionality, see what you like and don't like and then search for tweaks. There's a sticky from Goodthings2life for tweaks and clean up, the tweaks does add a lot of functionality but also removes things that you may personally find useful, like push internet, but saves on battery life. Take some time to read through the threads and see what sounds good and what you like and give 'em a shot.

Definitely get the hang of the stock feel. Especially if you 're new to Windows Mobile - and be patient. The phone has way too many features for the short tempered and impatient. Once you get a feel, then do some tweaks, themes, apps, games, etcc...

I would just wait a few days. Everything you do, you're going to wipe out if you flash a custom ROM

Not even put on the screen protector the first thing?

Its too late now. Its going to take you many many tries to have it dust free.
