I got a new phone! I Spent two frustrating hours with my son Wednesday night trying to learn the basics of my new Droid X. My son kept telling me, “Don’t over-think this phone. Be smarter than the phone.” When I got home from my son’s house I kept fiddling with it all the while repeating my mantra, “BE SMARTER THAN THE PHONE. BE SMARTER THAN THE PHONE”. Lo and behold I got to where I could do some things with it. I also kept telling myself that they wouldn’t make a phone that people couldn’t figure out. But, then I would despair and remember that there are people and then there is me! I have finally begun to feel comfortable with it. I wanted to put in some numbers on speed dial and couldn’t get any good info on how to do that. So I asked my face book friends and my wonderfully smart, retired math teacher friend, Carol Hobby told me exactly how to do it. My friend Pam Meeks used Carol’s instructions and it worked perfectly for her. I still couldn’t get it to work. I put it down over night and came back to it this morning, still no luck. Then Carol told me one simple thing, “Don’t type in the number, scroll to it.” Voila! That was the ticket. LOL Carol probably thought, “How would a special ed teacher go about doing this?” and then she sent me the one simple thing to do. Thanks so much. Now I have all my numbers in my speed dial. I figured out how to set different ring tones for different people and how to set up my ICE numbers. Watch out world I am about to buy some apps!
Make a nice day-
