    Hello, everyone! I just received my first ever smartphone this past Saturday! My dad upgraded and gave me his old one, since the sliding thing I bought two years ago for $30 isn't functioning as well as it used to. Since I've never had a smartphone, I joined the forums to check out some of the features (because I can't handle finding them myself) and see what other people have to say about it. Even though I'm 21, and should therefore have no trouble with new technology, I'm having some trouble adjusting. I've finally figured out how to call people, and I'm getting better at not accidentally hanging up on them (this is where technologically-minded people hit their heads against the desk). I probably sound like a grandma, but I've finally entered the 21st century. I don't even know what kind of droid it is. It's the one that has a slide out keyboard, and I think it may be the original one (my dad got it Spring 2010).

    I'll be browsing for tips on how to use this thing, but I like it so far?

    If you go to settings/about phone/

    That should tell you all you'll need about the phone

    Post script: welcome to great site

    Yes welcome to the site and the 21st century as well lol but you can find everything you could ever dream of on this site and the search button is your best friend. Hope you enjoy the new phone I still have my OG Droid and it just sits here at my house I update it every now and then just to fool with it.

    Welcome aboard and hope you enjoy it here!!

    Yeah, just spend as much time as you can reading old/all posts. I imagine you will find most answers here. If not, please do not hesitate to ask. Remember none of us were born knowing about these phones and this operating system. We were all at your level of knowledge at one time - we were just there before you. So do not hesitate to ask for help if you need it.
