I tried,believe me.The only reason he's got the G-NEX is SPRINT had a $0 sale on it @ the time.Otherwise,he'd probably be in some unbranded feature phone.
He really has no idea what the phones capabilities hold & insists on learning it all "someday" w/the help of a "G-NEX FOR DUMMIES" book.
He's actually a nice person,but,appears to have too much pride to ask anyone for help with his phone.
My 1st suggestion to him months ago was to give A/F a look.I think I'll bring up the A/F topic to him again in casual conversation the next time I see the guy after the holidays.Perhaps after a few months of having the phone & no doubt a measure of frustration that he may be experiencing,he'll be ready to drop in to A/F & get some guidance.
I'll even try to place a bookmark shortcut on his home screen to facilitate things.
I'd place a PHANDROID shortcut,but,as I mentioned,he has no access to the GOOGLE PLAY STORE until he gets a GOOGLE account.
