Proper Steps To Configure A Droid 3?

Specs: Windows XP Home 2002, Asrock 2.8GHz / 2 Gb
I will be getting a Droid 3 in a few days. This will be my first SmartPhone, although I am slightly familiar with their usage and capabilities. (I had an HTC Merge for a few days, but for various reasons decided against keeping it)

I have been reading some things about app killers to stop all of the bloatware that come on these phones and have seen some mention of steps that can be taken to increase battery life.

Is there a tutorial or website where a list of tips and tricks can be found to help me set up my Droid 3 so that I get the best use from it? I know that I can browse the various forums found via Google, but I'm hoping that you folks here at computing.net could provide a filter of sorts and suggest something that is known to be a quality resource.

Thanks!

I don't know of a dedicated tutorial, and that's probably because there's more than one way to achieve what you want. When you get the device, go to the market, and uninstall anything you aren't going to use. Some applications won't uninstall, but that's ok. Then, search for advanced task killer (ATK) and install it. Once it is installed, customize the ignore list so it doesn't kill apps you want running in the background. That should do it for starters, and you'll learn as you go along.

How will I know what apps I want running in the background?

Things like your email, gps, bluetooth, wifi, should run in the background so that they can be used by the system to notify you of messages, keep your headset paired, stay connected to an access point, or use your location to help you navigate. It will be pretty obvious which applications atk can kill without hindering your ability to use the device.

Thanks.

I'll probably be back once I start using the device.
