Hi everyone

I just got an OKTA touch as an insurance replacement for my murdered HT Titan.

I don't know much about it, anyone got any tips and pointers about it? I'm not extremely technology savvy but I'm pretty good at working things out, but if anyone wants to help me out I would really appreciate it!

Also, I was re-entering all my address book details (my Titan is so dead I couldn't active sync it) and I put my new phone down for 20 minutes or so. When I came back to it the green indicator light was still flashing but the phone would not show anything on the screen. I thought it might need charging so I hooked it up, and the indicator turned red!!! Have I already murdered my new phone??????

Why are you re entering your contacts?

If you had active sync'd your Titan, then all your contacts should be in Outlook?? So all you had to do was connect your Touch and set to synch contacts and all the contacts already in Outlook sych to the Touch.. a 2 second job

Mostly it's because it was a double homicide - my phone and laptop were victims of a horrible crime! (140kg flatmate planted hoof on bag whilst in the midst of a tanty).
