    I'm trying to set up device manager and seem to be falling at the first hurdle

    I'm following this advice https://support.google.com/accounts/...e_manager&rd=1

    I can't find the Google Settings app. I have a generic Settings app (black square with blue edge and blue sliders), but this doesn't contain a heading for Android Device Manager in the first screen or in the apps screen.

    Completely new to Android, so probably missing something obvious!

    Thanks for any help.

    Check your Play Store and make sure your not missing an update for that Google Settings app.
