    How do I help my 60 year old mom learn how to use the Droid?

    Hi. So my mother just purchased the new Droid. I plan on buying mine this week , but as of now she has no idea how to use the phone and I live across the country so I can't exactly go over there and help her out.

    Are there any threads here I can link her to to point her in the right direction? Or if there are youtube videos, that would be even better. I tried searching but couldn't come up with much.

    For now she just needs quick explanations on how to navigate through her contacts, add new contacts, make calls and get on the net.

    Once I get my droid, I'll be able to explain a lot of stuff to her but if there is any info to help her get started that would be awesome.


    Thanks in advance.

    Point her to the user guide (pdf). There's also an online intro at the Verizon Droid site.

    Curious though, why didn't she get an Eris?

    Not sure...she liked the droid from what she saw and just bought it. Thanks for the link to the users guide. She said there wasn't one in the box.

    Does she already have a Gmail account? I organized all of my contacts there before I got my phone. It's probably easier to manage them here as well if she needs to go through a bunch. Import / Export contacts...
    Please do not text, place or answer calls while driving. Be responsible.

    Let me Google that for you

    I just made a gmail account for her. Unfortunatly she's always been a yahoo e-mail user but never had anything besides e-mail addresses saved there. she apparently went to the verizon store and asked if they could transfer numbers from her old phone to the droid but they can't yet. so she has started manually putting them into her gmail contacts.
