Re: What OS did you switch from?
Yes, therein lies much of my problem is the learning curve. Ive been with Windows for so many years that this is truly a new experience for me. I'm one of those old timers who came up through computers from the days of DOS2.1 and 3.3. I played with UNIX back in the day when things were still a Green or Amber screen and things were written in Hexadecimal. Granted, I was around 10 years old then but I didn't really keep up with it for quite a few years and now face a system and sets of systems I pretty much know nothing about.

I haven't seen BB10 yet so can't really speak to that one but all the others just aren't intuitive compared to WP.
Again, where Android and iOS shine so well and I love so dearly now is the number of apps they have available and many of them for free. I have yet to not be able to find an app to help me solve a problem I am having when I need it. Compared to Windows Store, they leave a lot to be desired in that comparison. I'm always open to any input and help with the Android OS. With the new Launchers, would I have to jailbreak or root my phone or whatever they call it for Android?
