THE COMMENTS SECTION IS NOW OPEN!!! For some mysterious reason, the comments section hadn't been working the last few days. I was wondering why you all were so quiet!!
I would like to think I'm fairly intelligent. My circle of friends are also intelligent. During the last two decades, I've managed to raise two intelligent daughters. I've noticed, however, that nothing makes anyone feel stupid faster than attempting to program a new cell phone.
I've had my new phone for almost a month and TODAY! I finally figured out how to select predictive text for text messaging. It was much easier to figure out with my old phone. At dinner the other night, my friend, Kathy, showed me her new cell phone, which is just like mine. I asked her about predictive text and she said she figured it out. Then we sat there in the restaurant with our phones, punching buttons and squinting at our read-outs and couldn't figure it out. She said she'd call me after she got home and read up on it.
She called me and walked me through it. No luck.
Today, I got out my book and committed to getting it figured out TODAY, no matter what. SUCCESS. Sadly, I have no idea how I did it.
Next step, trying to find the location of the ringtones I downloaded. They aren't where the book says they should be. I've concluded that the instructions in the book were written by the Mapquest people. This instruction book seems to sometimes leave out a step in a similar fashion that Mapquest sometimes leaves out an important intersection or left turn.
