    Hello everyone, Wow, lots of info here!! Thanks!
    I'm looking for some guidance. My wife's T-Bolt is very nice and she loves it!
    She has some SMS's she needs to save, along with the entire threads. A friend showed me how he could 'delete history' on his android, and it would wipe out all call logs, messages, and emails from his phone, and send everything to his Gmail account. He couldn't remember what App it was, and I am very reluctant to 'delete' anything without knowing for sure. Can someone shed some light on this, or tell be a better way to backup SMS's and emails from her T-Bolt? Thanks!

    As a first time android phone (Motorola Bionic) I want to thank you and everyone for the posts and replies on this forum. I will certainly direct other new users to this site.

    Looks like great information. I am trying to figure out which Verizon Android phone to get (will be my first Android after a couple Windows Mobile phones). I need to get 5 posts so I can see the images.
    I got my Bionic less than 2 weeks ago. I would recommend it based on many conversations and hands on experience at the Verizon store. The Razr was also considered but I did not like a couple of features (cannot remove battery for example).

    I would suggest reading a basket of reviews and narrow down your prospects to 2 or 3. Then find a place where you can play with all of them and select the one that fits (size, features, cost, accessories, etc.).

    There are so many manufacturers and models that choosing can take quite a bit of time and effort.

    gosh i have a question but dont want to ask.. ok i know nothing about android but willing to learn and maybe get one next month. so is it possible to get apps and store them on pc until i get the device i want? like when an appcomes to mind get it now so it isnt forgotten..( godh this will be a hard convert from blackberry)
    I have downloaded apps to my laptop and I believe you can install to your phone when you get it and identify the brand and model.

    Since I'm new I'm reading post from 2010. I hope the questions I ask are not annoying as I'm sure they were asked in later posts. I hope to learn enough to be a contributor thanks to this forum.

    Hello everyone!! I really need some of your opinion re: Which is better because i would like to make sure which one is best before i committed myself with these phones. Thanks
    Better is usually in the eye of the beholder. It can be very subjective and based on personal preference. I depend on reviews of each phone and do my own comparison.

    Hello...

    Go to Verizon's website, go under Support/Devices/ find and select your device and then you should be given an option among others to view the USER GUIDE online via PDF file. You can then save or print it out if needed.

    Thank God for this site and these forums because umm dam I have always had basic phones and now have finally made the journey to Android. Got me & my woman a pair of Rezounds on the way. Hopefully setting these up won't be difficult. I assume if you have computer knowledge you will be somewhat comfortable with the UI. Going to read my butt off on all the Sticky's

    Android Central is the best. People here are always happy to help.

    You are going to love everything that your phones can do. It is just one cool thing after another.

    Have fun!

    It sure helps. If you're familiar with Linux it's even better, but the desktop is "window-ish" enough that you should be able to use the phone with a beginner's guide or two. Menus in apps are a bit different, the taskbar is a bit different, but it's all "a bit" different, not too different to catch on. Pretty soon you'll be thinking of your phone as a laptop in a pocket. (If you're young enough that your eyes still change focus. We older guys need 5" or 6" screens just to keep from having eyestrain. After 5 minutes on the 3.5" Android, I'm still squinting at my 21" monitor.)

    Hi, I ran across your forum after spending a few frustrating hours trying to connect my husband's smartphone to our home wifi. We are both 60 and not really technically savvy. He can connect at work, but not at home. Verizon is our service provider. The wifi network shows up as active on his phone, but when he clicks & enters the password, it fails to connect. I'm hoping to find some information on this site! Thanks in advance!

    Rooting gives apps the ability to do things they can't do if the phone isn't rooted. It's like "run as administrator" in Windows.

    You can officially update the existing firmware without rooting the phone. You have to root it if you want to install some unofficial updates.

    The question you should ask yourself is whether you want to update the phone just to update it, or if you have some specific purpose in mind. If the former, don't bother. You won't gain anything, and you risk bricking the phone (turning it into something as useful as a brick).

    It depends. Is it referring to app updates or firmware updates? I would bet it's app updates, because if it's a system update, it wouldn't be plural. It is safe to update apps from the notification.
