i-Phone by Apple...Baby Steps...

Today, I uploaded all of my contacts into my shiny new i-Phone.
That's a lot of work!
I spent an hour or so trying to figure out how to do that, and then, like a house afire, I went to work, my fingers blazing a trail across that teensy weensy keyboard.

Now, I want to figure out how to connect the i-Phone to the internet.
Sounds simple, if you are computer literate, but I'm so not good at this.
I think I've forgotten my password for getting into my computer.
I have a username that is not my usual one, and I cannot recall what the hell I used for a password.
I've looked everywhere in the computer that I know how to look, and no luck.

So, here I sit with an i-Phone and no way to access the Apps store!
That's my definition of pure torture. Having something to buy online and not having a way to do it. Like being in a cheesecake cafe and not having any cash to buy a slice!

I've called the computer genius, my son.
Left a message on his cell.
He hasn't called back so that means he's either busy or hasn't stopped laughing at my inabilities yet.

Tomorrow, I go back to work and I better be able to use this new phone so my clients don't see me as totally inept. In spite of my awkwardness with using it, I do love this phone, mostly for the possibilities that I see, rather than for the actualities which I know.

I have so many user names and passwords, it drives me crazy! Do you think you wrote it down somewhere? I hope you find it or remember it so you can start playing with your phone. If it is your iTunes user name that you forgot, it might be your email account. I think that was the user name at one time for iTunes. Good luck.
