I should have just enabled "broadcast SSID" first... I ended up doing just that & it worked with no problem! It was not listed however. That is why I asked. Thank you for the suggestions!
I do realize that the red button will get me back to the home page... but it sometimes takes me thru the menu page 1st... I was asking to know if changing the side button would get me straight back to the main/home page with a single button push always!? If there is a way to do this, please do let me know. It may not be possible! Thanks again for the help!
I will try to find a workaround to get the contacts synced 1st as my girlfriend is faced with the same problem and it would cost nearly as much to get the s'ware as it would to get another of the phone!
If i can't figure one out... guess I will have little choice! Thanks for the input everyone! ~FAT
