Default Questions on transition to Tour.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
I wish I were more of a techie...maybe then these changes wouldn't be so painful....
Yesterday I upgraded from my Curve to a Tour. With a few exceptions I've managed to tweak everything to the way I like them.
I'm having trouble with the following:
1. No memopad icon on the Tour. The icon doesn't show up anywhere. I've checked the applications folder, unhidden everything I can see, and I still can't find the Memopad icon. However, when I do a search for a known item in the Memopad, I can find it so I know it's on the device but for the life of me, I can't find the *&^%^ icon!
2. I have some photos on my Curve that I forgot to e-mail to myself before I pulled the plug on my service to change it to the Tour. I don't have memory card for either device. How can I get those files over the Tour?
Thanks for any assistance.
Gary

In response to question #2, does your Curve have wifi? I think you can get on wifi even without a SIM card -- could try emailing it to yourself that way.

Otherwise try to borrow a memory card (you only need one), and save it on to the memory card.

For question #2, connect your Curve to your PC and using the Windows Explorer, navigate through your phone to HOME/USERS/PICTURES and just copy them to your computer... then connect the Tour to your PC and copy them back.

Thanks! That worked. I am in the Memopad! Do you know how I can restore the icon or find out where it is residing??

Found the Memopad....I somehow managed to move it to the Instant Messaging Folder...I could swear I looked in there...must be old age

Regarding the photos, they don't show up under the desktop manager so I can't transfer them that way. The Curve never had a memory card in it so my photos are in the device memory. I can put the card from my Tour in there but I don't know how to get them from the Device Memory to the Memory Card.

insert card into old phone.
on phone go to media - pictures
highlight the pic you want to move
menu - move
then select media card as the destination.
complete.
do the same for all pics
