    Just bought a Huawei P8 lite yesterday - my first ever smartphone. It's driving me crazy, because:

    1. After hitting "slide to unlock", I can't get past 4 functions - recorder, calculator, torch & video - none of which I want. I just go round in circles. How do I get to all the icons I did have yesterday?

    2. There is a green ligh in the top left hand corner of the screen flashing on-and-off. what's that about?

    3. How long does it take for a new SIM to kick in? My contact data was transfeered to the new phone (though not the new SIM) by the store, but, whereas the old handset SIM still works, the new one does not - and it's been nearly 24 hrs since I purchased. Also, the contact details are formatted totally differently to the way they were on the old SIM, so I can't find names I want.

    Yesterday, I did manage to sort some things on this new device; last night / today, it's all gone to Hell . . . . and I can't get past a screen with 4 functions I don't even want.

    Can anyone assist? Please?

    Have you tried downloading the manufacturer's PDF guide for the device?

    I can't answer device questions 1 and 2, but if you are still keeping the former sim active (you may not be) you should call customer support to activate the new one. I take it it's a different size.
    There days sim cards can only store basic data for a few contacts (name and number) so you may need to manually input contacts in to a Google account.

    You can do this on a pc and they will sync over to the phone.


    Please register if you need more information, and there are some new to Android guides in the Android Central Community - General Help and How To section, look for the Guides list on top.

    Here's one or three :

    [GUIDE] Getting Started with Android (UPDATED 2016 for Nougat)

    [GUIDE] How To Add Photos To Contacts

    [GUIDE] Swapping Phones

    Also try the blogs / articles on www.androidcentral.com and search for some excellent how to guides, plus a review of your device.
    You can also ask in your device forum, or one with similar Huawei software.
