hello, I have just purchased a v3 motorola,( used ) from Ebay.
the phone works fine, but having never had one before i am not sure
about some things.
firstly, the phone is full of the previous owners addresses and phone
numbers, 150 in total. I know how to delete them one at a time, is there a way to delete all at once.....
secondly,I am getting windows logo before the moto logo,can i delete this...
thirdly, with the phone switched on and closed, I have nothing on the outer screen exept a black square within the screen, should it not

Then return it to the previous owner.

Or it might be a setting somewhere in the menu.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
