    I just bought the Nexus S 4G and while I believe I understood all that the sales person was telling me, I now have questions on the full use of this phone. I need to see written instructions on how to do everything it says I can do on this phone. Please advise as to where I can download the manual that gives me these instructions. For a person who needs this info, this is not a user friendly site. I’ve looked at the user guide, owners manual and get all sorts of other info that does not show me squat.

  2. judith storie says

  5. Ioannis says

    I just bought the Samsung Nexus S and I felt so stupid, that it was impossible for me to use the new androit technology!!! From what I understand there is no manual for this specific phone (apart from the owner’s guide that only explains how to charge the smartphone…) but you can use the Android’s 2.3 User’s Guide which works as a manual for all the applications implemented in this phone.

  6. Mary says

    I have just received my Nexus S 4G, and feel the same as all others. I only want the necessary manual not all of the sights.

  7. Jenaii says
