    Just signed up -looking for a place that can help me figure out how to use my new bionic -after looking around a bit, I'm very impressed w/ the threads and so far, the couple questions I've had have been answered.

    I am currently trying to assign ringtones to certain contacts, and when i go in to options and then try to select any tone other than default, it still shows ringtone being default.....
    I tried to use the My Verizon app and i was prompted to upgrade to the newer version, but the permissions included things like deleting txts w/o my permission, making calls w/o my permission and the like -is that normal?! It sounded crazy to me so I didn't accept or download, but here I am unable to use myverizon -do I accept that stuff and "hope" it doesn't happen? Little confused about the permissions.......
    Is textfree safe to download and use? Which one do I get? I'm terrified to download something harmful to my phone -can't afford to get a new one and also stuck w/ this one for the duration of the contract....I've noticed tapatalk on the forum replies and posts -what's that about?


    Ok, I'll start with those questions haha -in advance, I appreciate time taken to answer and help me out so I can maximize the use of this phone -I know it has great capabilities and I want to use as much or little as I want, at least I'll have the choice!

    Thanks again guys (or ladies, guys is more of a general term....)

    That sounds a little odd but to be honest I didn't look at the permissions for myverizon. Make sure the app is developed by Verizon by looking at the name under the app.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    Tapatalk is a forum app on the android market and I believe ios. Its pretty cool especially if you are on a lot of forums because you can access forums without using the browser.
    The My Verizon thing is strange but I would just do what the person above said. Just make sure its developed by Verizon and you should be good.
    Sorry but not sure about the ringtone thing.

    Sorry about answering those backwards from how you asked them.
