New to the "Custom Phone" thing...

I just got a Mogul and my friend told me about this site. He showed me all kinds of stuff on his Mogul and I was sold. Only problem is, I don't know how to use all this new stuff. Can someone explain to me how to utilize some of these goodies?

For example, I just downloaded a Manilla 2D skin file to my computer. How to get it on my Mogul and use it? I also have update 19 and don't really know how to get these onto my phone or how to activate them once they're on there.

Any help would be awesome...as I am a NOOB.

Welcome. The best thing to do is search.

If you're a Sprint customer (and I'm assuming you are as you're referring to it as the Mogul), you're going to want to be exchanging that phone for the Touch pro in about a week.

But this is also assuming that you bought your phone with in the last 23 or so days and can exchange it through Sprint's program.

Re: New to the "Custom Phone" thing...

the 1st and best thing for "nood" to do is use and abuse the search function.

Also cooking a ROM is the BEST way to only have items on your phone you want/use great way to speed the phone up and increase the stability. I get 26mb on reset and run close to 20mb

look at Step by Step tutorial for unlocking your device and cooking your own ROM!!!

Re: New to the "Custom Phone" thing...

Well, the phone was purchased a while back by someone before me. I bought the phone and had it activated VERY recently, do you think that will work or will they be able to tell how old the phone is?

As a side note, the phone was turned in having "technical problems" just before I bought it. The one I have is a re-furb from Sprint. You think maybe I can pass it off as a new purchase and exchange it?

Re: New to the "Custom Phone" thing...

they can tell how old it is by pulling up the ESN #, if it is a re-furb then they definitely can tell how old it is.

I would try the approach of you just got the phone and have had issues ever since you got it. do you have Insurance on it? if so you should be able to upgrade by paying the cost difference.
