Traded my iPhone 4S for a new Samsung Galaxy S4

I switched to a Samsung Galaxy S4 yesterday, after owning 3 generations of iPhones for several years. I've been pleasantly surprised at how much more I like this smart phone than my iPhone.

Better is of course relative, but I've been impressed with the larger and brighter screen, expandable memory options, far better camera (records in HD, and both front and rear cameras can record at the same time) and numerous configuration options.

AT&T also has a $200 iphone trade-in program, which made it an even swap for the 16-GB Samsung! Saved me the time and hassle of placing an ad on craigslist, and paid for the new phone in one shot.

Loving my Samsung. Not missing my iPhone. Lots of new things to learn (and to blog about along the way), but I like what I see so far.

How to clean the screen on a Samsung Blackjack

Question: I recently purchased a Samsung Blackjack II. I have had it less than a week...there is so much dust that has accumulated under the screen and it is driving me crazy. I carry it in a leather case all the time. Is there a safe way to clean the screen and once I do, how can I prevent this from happening!! I have never had this problem with other cell phones I have owned. Thanks so much!!

Transfer ring tones to a Samsung Instinct

Question: How do I access files on my Samsung Instinct using a USB data cable, or how do I put ring tones on my phone that are on my computer. Also, what folder do i put them in, and what format should the ring tones be in?

Answer: Spring provides a Media Manager program that lets you retrieve, manage, and synchronize your pictures, video and music between your PC and the Samsung Instinct. You'll be able to use Media Manager to transfer ring tones from your PC to your cell phone, and it will automatically put them in the right place.

You can also assign a different ring tone to each of your contacts, so you can give your significant other a special ring tone that lets you know who is calling even before you look at the caller ID (or you could know it's your boss and could send the call to voice mail before accidentally answering it).

1.Update your phone's firmware

The latest version of Media Manager addresses an issue experienced with the inability to activate the application upon first time use. To take advantage of this fix in media manager, you must have the latest version of firmware installed on your Instinct.

You can check to ensure you have the latest firmware installed on your phone by going to Home >> Settings >> General >> Update Software. If you do not have the latest version, you will then be prompted with instructions to upgrade the firmware.

2. Download and install Sprint Media Manager

Once your firmware has been updated, then download the latest version of Sprint Media Manager from the download page:
