I've been reading the manual for my new Galaxy S III phone. It's 166 pages long. I can't find out how to display my contact list alphabetized by last name, instead of first name. It also synced my contacts from Google, which I didn't want. I wanted it synced with my Windows address book. That's what I have been syncing my iPhone with. I also want the time in 24 hour format, not AM and PM.

This is giving me a headache. I will have to watch some YouTube videos. Dang, I don't want to study, just to use my phone. I can't even find the calendar or how to get an address out of my contact list into Google maps. I can usually just play around with phones and software and figure out most of the stuff. Too tired to deal with it any more tonight.

If that's the case, the next time I'm there for whatever reason, I'll present them with a quarter, a nickel, a dime and two pennies. "Paid in full" as far as I am concerned.
No, no. Just nickels and pennies. And you want a signed receipt.

I love my phone. I make calls, get calls, and on the front it tells me the time, date am or pm. I could text, but I don't know how, have no interrest in learning. Life is so simple.

I apologize TL. I just couldn't resist. Good luck.

I'm having a problem with my computer. This is serious, because I can't play Spider Solitaire without tearing my hair out. Like I said, serious. Sometimes I can't get the cards to move, or they'll move halfway and jump back and I'll have to try numerous times at which point I just give up and exit out. Also, I need to copy and paste all the funny stuff you guys post on "Today's Funny" but I'm having trouble highlighting the picture -- the picture will start to move instead. Grrr.

Can't afford a new computer or to lose any more hair. Have pity, someone.

Another Spider Solitaire addict.

For copying the pictures, try right clicking on the picture. If you are using FireFox, you should get a context menu with the option to "copy picture". It might work in other browsers too.

What operating system are you using?

Hmm, maybe this should have its own thread. Someone here is probably techie enough to help, but it might take a lot of questions and guessing.

Yeah, the more a phone does, the more complicated it gets. I'm really glad I told the guy at the Fido store (Fido is my phone provider) not to activate the new phone. I knew I wanted to know how it works before I had to make or receive any phone calls on it. It's my main phone.

Ohhh. I do use FireFox and after I finally get it highlighted, I right-click and use the "copy" choice. Many thanks, tax - I'll just skip the highlighting step.

I have Vista and surely hope I don't have to 'graduate' to Windows 8 -- I've heard awful things about it, even though Vista is by no means ideal.

So you don't think there's already a thread for this kind of stuff? I'd be glad to go there with my petty problems if it already exists.

My son The Pirate has Vista. He likes it. Took him a while to get used to it. I have Windows 7. I am happy with it. Have no intentions to go to 8. I still think their best was XP Windows.

I agree, XP was the best. I still use a laptop with XP. I'm also using another new laptop with Windows 8 and am still learning how to use it. I think Microsoft went the other way on this OS and made it user 'unfriendly' for regular laptops and desktops.
