I just picked up a new SGS2 and im not really sure what to think. Technology is just too much for me and I miss the days when cell phones were the size of bricks and there was nothing fancy or digital about them. Too me 'app' is a swearword... Anyway im not going to rant in this post. I just need a little android guidance. Now before you say... google it. I work 15 hours a day 7 days a week in a coal mine and my internet connection isnt much faster than dialup. By the time I google something my hair will be turning grey What I am wondering is what do I do get rocking with this phone. The app icon thingies all over the screen irritate me... is there a way to make them invisible when not in use ?? Whats the best e-mail to use ?? I have always used operamail but since they changed to fast mail... annoying... and my new phone doesnt connect with it. Everything these days seems to force me to use Gmail which I dislike just on principle. However I decided to try it and there seems to be a shortage of available names in the world. I kid you not, I spent six hours today trying to come up with a name that wasnt taken or didnt suck. In the end the name I chose sucked anyway. I wish I could just keep my old email name *sigh* What email programs do you guys like to use ?? Are there standard features and such I should be setting up on my new phone ?? I need a good weather app for my part of Canada. The one that comes with it cant seem to find my city. And how do I hide that big ugly weather screen thats always open on my desktop ?? I dont know if my operating system is the latest and im even less certain how to upgrade it, please help! My phones service provider says the new android 4. whatever ICS is coming out soon... any updates on that ?? These super slim new fangled contraptions just feel like cheap fragile toys to me. All that said... it is nice and shiny and thank gawd the name doesnt start with 'i' hehe. Thanks for any help in advance !
