    My son just bought the Galaxy 3 and gave me his old version. I have no idea how to use it and need help. I need to learn from A to Z about the phone.

    Hello, welcome to Android Forums, I'm rabidhunter, I would like to help you.

    It would be more helpful if I knew the exact make and model of your phone. There are some basics that I can go over with you.

    Android is an Applciation based operating system. Think of it like a PC, only you're installing applications instead of programs. All your applications are located in your app drawer. This is should look something like this

    This will give you access to all the applicaions installed on your phone and will look like this.

    To add and installe new apps you will visit the Play Store, which looks like this:

    To place phone calls, tap on the phone icon. The text icon should look like a rectangle with a little face in it.

    There is a lot that you can do with your new Smart Phone. I suggest joining Android Forums by registering here and finding your phone's specific make and model in the forum list. There are plenty of people who will be able to answer your questions there.
