I think it's because it's Android.

As Android goes, any manual would be wiped out with the carrier changing or tailoring Android to their network. So while there are tomes about Android I don't expect anything specific for this phone as, well, how could there be a "correct manual?"

I know that, but the phone is my ball and chains and she wants a guide to basic functions such as settings and such like. Thanks for the reply.

And that's the rub.

With each version of Android and with each carrier the settings and such move about and change. As I help at the office write Android apps I have to shake my head a little as I see this daily.

What do I do? Dive into the settings and look around.

Is there something specific to find?

Most of the time the Settings are just that. After a few Androids, well, you learn to just get in there.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
