Yes I called myself a noob, but that's what I am. I'm long winded so I'll try to make this short First: I volunteer for a very busy rescue squad and receive up to 50 text messages a day for calls. When I'm not on duty or out of town I really don't want this thing keeping me awake. Is there a way to silence a specific contact? If it helps to know the calls come via SMS but are sent from an email address, if that makes any difference. Second: I have mobile broadband tethering (business pays for it so I just need it to work, don't care about the saving money part with a different app). However VZ Access manager will not recognize the phone. It says "Device not inserted." Is there a specific option I need to choose when connecting the USB cable? I also used my BB via bluetooth for web browsing on my computer ... but still the same issue, doesn't recognize the droid. Thanks!!!
