#101 Setting up a New Smartphone

Episode 101 was live on Sunday, Nov 20, 2016. Our Beginner's lesson was about setting up a new phone the Geek's way! We think you should use your Google account to store all your contacts and pictures. If you set it up that way in the beginning, then you'll never have to worry about losing your phone, or having to get another one, or even switching from Apple to Android or vice versa!
In addition to the Beginner's Lesson we have a starting tip, and an ending tip. It's like a Learning Sandwich!
