First, there was a Samsung Sucks post in which I wrote about my hapless ownership of a Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone, but I mishandled the Blog Editor after I published it, and the post went away some hours after I had published it.
So next, I wrote a proper explanation of why it went away, and the TypePad blog editor STILL hates me, so THAT just went away as well.
BenC, your appropriate comment on what I should do with my Samsung phone and the wireless service it is contracted to also went away, sorry about that, no offense intended. Ben told me to "root" the phone. If you are an Apple Phreak, that's known as "jailbreaking", and basically, you instruct the Android IOS that YOU are the master of it, not the phone company. It voids your phone warranty, but you gain control over your phone, it's apps and it's memory. I'll think about doing that, but I might also upgrade, or I might buy out of the present contract and have a complete do-over to an ordinary dumb-phone, saving myself $1000/year if both I and the gudwife do that.
