I could not follow instructions.I tried butcould not find all the different apps. Quite frankly the reply is only suited to people with a technical background. Certainly not to a fairly intelligent 85 year old.

ok, but it is a set of step by step instructions and its the steps that have to be followed, there is no other steps to accomplish this.

On which step did you get stuck on?


Why did you turn around and make a complaint about me? I gave you step by step instructions, you want something simpler but there is nothing simpler, this is how the phone works.

I asked you where you got stuck, to further assist you and you turn around make a complaint and indicate I have been rude and incorrect.

I do not feel this is the right way at all to treat someone helping you...

I did not imply you were rude.I said it is difficult for someone with little technical knowledge to follow the instructions. however, all is not lost. I will get my son on the case. Thankyou.
