More questions one doent like to ask from the little deaf rabbit

Im about to try a smartphone again. The first was only partially successful

 

What does one need to do to set up a smartphone when it arrives      as in SMART  rather than phone.

 

Sync ing       what , how from where  I found something under Account manager on my PC which might be relelvant

Using something other than GOOGLE - yes really.   How do i change or add  eg DUCK DUCK Go which doesnt trace one

 

Shopping    as above are ther other shopping bags other than Google

 

Can i delete some of the APPS im never going to use like candy floss , games ,  etc

 

Little deaf rabbit will stop there for now - i hope you get my drift.    thanks

First off we need to know which phone you are going to try?

the  new phone will be the AMPLICOMS  9500       which has the clearer sound  - fingers crossed.

 

I tried this before but because I couldnt handle the internet it went back a couple of years ago .

Re: More questions one doent like to ask from the little deaf rabbit

That's easy then as the phone runs on Android.

  • To use duckduckgo as your search engine just save this link as your homepage https://duckduckgo.com/
  • You have to use Google to backup and sync (Android is Google, so no getting away from that).
  • Google doesn't force you to shop with them at all, but if you want apps on your phone, Google Play is the safest way of getting them.
  • Any apps that are not system apps, ie required for the phone to work as a phone, can be deleted in your app manager settings.

You can unmark it as not solved or report it to a mod for removal.
