So, it’s been a few days…
So, it’s been a few days since the crying incident. Searching the internet for info was really frustrating and not helpful at all. Do you know how many tutorials there are on beating the Angry Birds game, or how to cheat and use your phone during your airplane flight? Lots! I didn’t need or want that information. I need basic operating instructions, and the operating manual book that comes with my phone expects a greater level of experience with smart phone technology that I have, so it wasn’t much help either.
Then my husband, (a very smart and understanding guy) looked on the manufacturers’ website and found several tutorials that were perfect, so check there first. Some important caveats, it’s really important to know what specific type of phone you have as well as its operating system. Example: I have an Android Razr, with the ICS (which stands for Ice Cream) operating system. Once you know this you can get the right information for your phone.
So I’ve added several contacts to my list, assigned a different ringtone to each member of my family (not necessary, but fun), learned the basics of sending and receiving texts, and have connected the phone to my Facebook account. Loud applause is appreciated.
It’s going to be a while before I really feel comfortable with this phone and its technology, but I don’t see it frustrating me to the point of tears again.
