1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Oh, brother. Got a Droid 2 and am stymied at every turn. But I have a good attitude. Got frustrated by the online/download version of the User's Manual and just figured out how to request a hard copy. Good. I have such basic questions, like how do I connect with Wi Fi or through the air via Verizon Wireless service, and what's the difference, anyway? Don't even know the terminology. Is there a section on this website like "Smart Phones for Dummies"?
    Thanks.

    There's a slight learning curve, you'll figure it out. Welcome to the forum.

    In the mean time, to connect to a Wifi network: Menu Button > Settings > Wireless and Networks > Wifi Settings > Select your network and connect, enter password if necessary. This will let your phone use a Wifi Network rather than the cell network.

    The Verizon service you're talking about will allow your computer to connect to the internet using your phone and the cell network. You can pay Verizon for this service, or enable it for free with some relatively easy modifications to the phone software.

    Get to learn your phone, read the forums, and we can help you whenever you need.

    Have fun.

    Welcome to the forums. You'll pick up the jargon fairly quickly but if I'm not mistaken there may be a terminoligy thread around here somewhere. Enjoy your time here.
