Thanks for help so far.
Crikey, I am having some frustrations, remember I am very familiar with Web OS from my touchpad so these are not general Web OS questions.
I got my SIM in, calls made and received. I have connected to my Wifi network so all downloading is nice and fast through the internet.
First problem… I have a constant error message on home page “Maps Download Failed”. Under applications “Maps” is greyed out with a Yellow ! on it.
Next problem… Google, Yahoo, Linked In, Facebook, accounts all entered and were all synchronised, my contacts list filled up with all my contacts from these sources then about an hour later all but a few contacts (saved to SIM card) disappeared, under Contacts top left button, I went to preferences and accounts, all the accounts I had created were shown, but when I opened any, in each case the password had disappeared and it seemed I was not logged in, on re-entering the password (I tried a yahoo account and my Skype account) I got a red message “unknown error”
I had to do a battery out/in reset, which was not a good start to my Pre 3 experience
I decided to set up some speed dials. I set up speed dials for 3/T, 4/D, 5/F 6/G, these worked fine from the physical buttons, but do not work at all from the numeric keypad on the phone touchscreen page this is a real shame, to have to slide open the keypad only when you want a speed dial is such a shame. It takes away some of the “speed”.
One of my daughters numbers seems to have morphed in to being an extra number under my wifes entry, and her entry where the number used to be stored suddenly has no phone number ( it does still on the TP though)
Making sense of multiple entries for same person is not great. Plenty of my contacts would be in multiple contacts list, facebook, linked in, Skype etc. Worst example is this: My wifes name is Una: if I start with all cards close, open contacts and type Una I get three search results, and cannot see from the 3 results which is imported from where upon selecting one of them, the only one with a thumbnail, I can see three phone numbers (mobile, landline etc), and her email address, although there is a “Set Speed Dial function” under drop down, there is no Add to favourites. The other two other search results which I found are as follows: 1. contains only her mobile number and 2. is her skype name. But for sure she is in there…. Now… when I again start from all cards closed, and touch the phone symbol and then favourites icon and click “Add Favourites” contact list appears, and I type “una” but now only get her Skype Name in the results, when I really want to select landline for one favourite and mobile for another favourite from the first entry above.
lots of other questions will come
