    Hi everyone
    Well I got an Ascend today (new to me) and was wondering if it is posible and if so how to make it speak commands like when you tell it to call someone and it will speak it. As I said totaly new to the android ascend. It is a metro ascend. Also any other neat features?
    thanks

    you can bring up the voice dialer by holding down the call button, or you can find it in the app drawer.:)

    So, Was going to upgrade the phone. So downloaded an app angrybirdsbackup as someone had recomended to backup my apps and contacts. Says not installed. Any other good free backup apps out there to do this that you would recomend? Sorry just new to the android thing. Also is 2.3 stable or can it run it properly? I guess that is the link above for it right?
    right now it is running 2.1 update 1

    I'm sure there are other backup apps out there, but I've always used Titanium Backup. Before I flash a new ROM, I'll move the Titanium Backup folder on my sdcard to my computer, then move it back when I'm done. Just don't try to restore system data, it won't like it. Even some of the app data may act buggy. Not a big issue, though.

    To back up your contacts, make sure you're syncing contacts with your Google account. You'll always have the backup, it will always be updated, and it is synced with your gmail account, so you can sync them with any Android phone as well as various computer programs and utilities.

    If you're getting ready to flash a new ROM, just remember to read the guides fully first, so you have a decent idea of what's going on.
