I used 000000 for the SPC password with success here. Interesting stuff in there!

Re: Moto Droid Tips and Tricks - Ask Questions Here

Yeah...I figured that out too. Apparently the correct key combo is:

Shift + Left Alt + Del

I'll update the first post.

Re: Moto Droid Tips and Tricks - Ask Questions Here

I searched as best I could so I apologize if the answer is around here somewhere, but how do you get your unread email and SMS count to show up on the actual icon? When I get emails/sms it only shows up in the toolbar. I searched the market and didn’t find anything that anyone said worked properly. The only suggestion that I saw was to use the “mail” icon instead. I set that up but still didn’t have a count appearing. Is there a setting for this somewhere?

Please Help! And thank you in advance!

Re: Moto Droid Tips and Tricks - Ask Questions Here

Jester,

I don't think that functionality is available yet. It would really need to be done through a widget methinks.

Re: Moto Droid Tips and Tricks - Ask Questions Here

I agree...It's a job for a widget.

I use Handcent SMS for text messages. It comes with a 1x1 widget that does this. Hopefully as these devices get more popular, we'll see more stuff like this.

Thank you. I will give it a try. Also if you use Gmail have you noticed that sometimes it will push out right away and other times it will take awhile to get?
