    Thanks for this, like many of the posts it was frustrating that the info was not in the manual, cheers

    Thanks for the info. Considering the cost of the phone it should have come with instructions/manual. Anyway, thanks again,

    Thanks 4 all the guidance re forwarding texts- however, tried to send as instructed but it said “converting to multi media” which was at 10.00 a.m this morning and it still says “sending”. It was a long text that I wanted to forward. Did anyone else have this problem?

    Agree about lack of manual . Thanks for help . . First Web site I went into wanted to charge me for assistance !

  8. Al says

    So easy, but hard to follow unless someone shows you. Fantastic phone but thought it was strange that it didn’t come with a manual included. Progress I guess…
