  1. ……..this is for a fairly outdated phone type .Eight years ago now. I've put my sister on you tube to learn some smartphone basics and thought I'd have alook for myself. I felt the important stuff first thing is to learn to send n receive emails, how to go on YouTube , how to use the camera, sending photos on email and messages and it's been a slow process for a novice. I'm glad that there exists tutorials here…it goes without saying I'm from an older generation but these days I find myself spending time with my head down on the phone going through you tube stuff . Unbelievable.

  2. Hi thx for a very helpful video. Do I need wi fi to start the phone? Also how do I type in my email addy? The letters don't come up to do it. Thx

  3. Way to go man! It is something i'm looking towards! (=

    Oh by the way, is it ok if I can also seek your advice in this open source android app I have posted below? Just need some feedback about it…

    Just need to search ' pub:Path Ahead ' in Google Play (P & A are case sensitive).

    greatly appreciate !

  4. I'm brand new to smartphones, so this was quite informative. Have only owned landlines, mobile phones & regular cell phones. Thanks, David.

  5. I'm 65 and just got one of these and I've never felt so stupid. I can't even receive just says mailbox not set up…goodbye.  I want to set the fucking thing on fire.

  6. little icons! and they hide menus-is very hard find somtening-I use 15 inch laptop that much easyier

  7. What direction( what degrees ) and how fast( milliseconds of full secreen wide?) You finger move to answer call ??????

  8. Firstly. You are talking to fast. More importantly, not a beginners. None of these videos are for true beginners.

  9. Sorry – I was missing far to much to make sense of what was going on – a combnation of fast speaking and low volume 🙁 Please sort the sound quality out before you start, I suspect it is a very helpful educational – very best wishes 🙁

  10. I really liked that clock widget that came in early version of Android,
    I´ve been trying to find it for Kitkat with no Success..
    (there are other versions of that retro-clock but not as good as that one)
    BTW, I used to live in Laguna Hills, beautiful city…

  11. Loved this video. The BEST so far !  I learned a lot..and took lots of notes.
    Wish I could download it in text so that i can PRINT it out for myself of course.

  12. nice review, can you ad minutes to this one, like the cards for 60 minutes. I am having a time finding that on my phone.

  13. Keep going with these videos! You're very clear and helpful. Your popularity and viewcount is going to skyrocket with time.

  14. A very clear explanation; Much clearer than the instruction manual with it's tiny print.
