re: phone automatically mistakenly puts in 1-plus
This is to thank Alejandra and Rich who both gave helpful replies to my now-closed first question. (Sorry it took a while to get back. I didn't know it would be closed so quickly.) This is my first smartphone ever, so I'm still learning a lot about it (and about my FP account and also this community.) I really wish that *every* app icon were clearly identified; they are not. For a true newbie, unidentified icons are *not* user-friendly. I have now learned which one is the FP "Messaging" app versus the other one called "Messages" that's right next to it. I also now know that the green, otherwise unidentified "Phone" app is *not* the one to use, even though it's right there on the home page! I know to use the "Contacts" app instead. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S4 Enhanced that I bought directly from FP. I'm currently using the basic, free plan -- successfully, as far as I can tell so far. It's still hard to believe that it's free. I didn't know what "Mobile Data" is, but now I think I know when I need to use it. It took me three *years* of trying to make sense of FP advertising to finally decide to try it. For people who have never had a smartphone, the ads are almost meaningless. Of course I'm a late-adopter, so I was one of a diminishing number who had never owned a smartphone. Thank you again, Alejandra and Rich.
