Mark as I've just started using this new phone and as soon as someone shows me how to store names & numbers with address's, I'll get someone to show me how to connect to and use the www on it.

For the first week, I turned off the ringer as I couldn't figure out how to unlock the key pad to answer a call. :rolleyes:

So what phone did you get?

So what phone did you get?
An LG cosmos. When I first got into this cell phone dither, I/we had a contract with CenturyTel communications. Over this past July, Verison bought my areas service from Century and now I'm with another phone that I'm trying to figure out how to use.

The manuals on these things always leave me wanting to pull hair and have the alcohol I seldom drink.:)

Heck, the second phone I had for 3 years before Tom Z. showed me how to increase the ring tone volumn. I could not hear it ring, nor could I figure out how to increase it.:rolleyes: Cell phones are just not my brightest bulb in the room.:o

About a year ago I decided it was time to upgrade to a smart phone. I bought a IPhone 4 and found there was a very small learning curve to getting a max usage with it. I believe that Apple made sure that even the less tech savy people could use all of the advantages from the standard cell phone and I think they got it right. The users guide contains 244 pages and is available in PDF format for easier keyword searching.
It's great for proving trivia questions(for a beer) at the bar.

The Blackberry Curve croaked last night after being introduced to laundry wash and dry cycles. Even though the Curve is considered a smart phone, I guess it still was unable to use the SFT app.

Today when I got a new cell phone, I got an HTC Merge which is an Android phone. Even though I read all the posts on this thread, I am still light years behind LW when it comes to cell phones or computers. Can someone give me a step by step tutorial on how I can download the SFT app and get it up and running ................thanks.

I think all you have to do is visit the site from your phone's browser and it should ask you if you want to download and install the app. I don't know if that's how it works on a Droid, but I know it does for an iPhone. If not then I think you can click the link in my first post and get the Android phone software (or whatever they call it) to do something :confused:

Sorry, I'm not much help on the Droids... :o

Last night I downloaded the SFT App and to my surprise had to agree to some terms before it would load. Now that I have downloaded the App, I need to find out where it is hiding. I looked through everything where I thought it might be. If I download an App, I would think it would be somewhere within the Icon that is marked "App's"

Is there a way someone could post a picture of what the App looks like (if it is the same for everyone). I am assuming that somewhere on it there will be the letters SFT. I have looked at everything in the HTC Merge manual that deals with App's thinking there must be something about downloading and saving App's..........but if it is there, I do not see it. It is no fun being technologically challenged, and very embarrassing when I have to have my 11 year old niece help me get my phone internet straightened out. I would really like to have the ability to get on SFT on my phone when at work when I have a problem that could be solved by the SFT knowledge bank...........thanks.
