    I qualify as a Dummie and I'm proud.

    A little while back I purchased my very 1st Smartass Phone(from a Flip Phone) I printed out the DuraForce Pro2
    "User Guide" and that manual is lacking a lot for a 1sr time user to this type of Technology. To me it SUCKS!!!!! I wasted hours and hours of time reading and getting more and more confused and
    aggravated.
    Then as Luck would have it I was introduced to a Book titled "Android Phones for DUMMIES" by Dan Gookin. The lights came back on, the AGGRAVATION dissipated,the connections started to connect.I started to say"really?" The DuraForce "User Guide" didn't say that! The User Guide did not explain that!

    So THANK YOU ,Dan Gookin,Thank You Very Much. a little lol!

    LOLALOT, YOU w/ your brain are asking ME for advise? HoHoHo, alot.

    My advise is to go on line and look up www.freepdf-books.com ,they have a 446 pg book ,3rd edition, CopyRight 2015,which is downloadable,of "Android Phones for DUMMIES". I sent an email to Mr.Dan Gookin asking him if the newer 5th Edition has newer up to date info specifically related to my 2019 Android Kyocera DuraForce Pro2 Phone. I did that this morning around 0346 hrs.

    The duraforce is a good phone. Very sturdy phone. I have taken the phone on alot of battles (service calls) and it holds up well. It's actually made for construction folks. Hey Terry did you know Catpiller... Makes some super phones also? They are similar to the Duraforce phones. Well have fun with Android phone they have a lot of apps that you can download and are very useful . My favorites are Emerson Copeland mobile app, Emerson check charge app, cool cloud for Goodman systems. Then I like my BOA app, cash app to get payments from customers and Goodrx for help finding prescription drugs very cheap when I get prescriped something.

    When this stuff is made in another country English is often a second language for the technical writers. Usually it's easily spotted in the use of terms and words not often associated with tech.
    Give me a relay with big enough contacts, and I'll run the world!

    You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.

    If a person wants to create a machine that will be more likely to fail...Make it complicated.
