Got my 8310 today and it's working! It's nice that AT&T let's you go to their website and activate a new phone from there, it was really simple! The last phone I got from them you still had to call them to activate.
The software installed okay, that is all except for some stupid Shockwave update that stopped responding, but there were a few questions that I had no idea about, so I just kind of stumbled my way through it not knowing what I was doing. It mostly had to do with servers, email association, etc. Hope I didn't give it the wrong answers, oh well, there will be a learning curve I'm sure
Now how many times has that been said around here?
I thought I would have a problem synchronizing 'cause all I have is MS Office 2000 that I upgraded from Office '97, so I was thinking that Outlook was a 2000 version too, but it turns out that it's Outlook 2002, don't know how that happened?
I do have one big soapbox-complaint though, where's the manual? Why have companies stopped including thick comprehensive manuals that cover every aspect of their product? I don't know about other cell phone providers, but AT&T throws in thier stupid, shallow, Getting Started guides and that's all! I suppose that there's a more complete manual on the CD, but I absolutely hate PDF's, I want a real manual, like back in the good 'ol days. My first cell phone was an old Nokia and it had a real manual and it said Nokia on it, not AT&T. I wonder if you get a regular manual from the manufacturer if you buy a new "Unlocked" phone that's not associated with any particular cell-phone provider? Well come to think of it, can you even buy a phone like that anymore?
Well I'm beginning to ramble, 'guess I better go play with my new toy and try to figure it out, huh?
