After using our old TracFone (cell phone) for several years, we just got a new one. Cute little thing, too. I managed to get the battery inserted and charged. Then the fun began -- trying to follow the instructions to enter contacts or do anything. I tried on-line customer contact but was still puzzled and gave up.

I hope our daughter locally can show us how this is set up because the instructions were useless. Trouble is, these folks assume everyone already has had one and knows how to enter numbers or letters or whatever. The startup info is not helpful.

It's okay to laugh, folks. Just understand that some of us retirees have not had to cope with some of these gadgets.

I bet most of you would be puzzled trying to explain how to construct or repair a turbine engine, too. I could describe it or do it.
