Backup Contacts, Pick Ringtones, and Install a Better Messaging Client on Your Android Smartphone
My first biggest complaints about my new Android phone (Samsung Intercept) were the following:
- I have to actually TYPE in the start of a contact number to message them if I started the message process from the actual messaging app. I mean, seriously, who memorizes their contacts these days.
- I had no option to set individual ringtones for contacts. This is a basic phone feature we've come to know and love. It is beyond me why this feature does not come standard.
With these two complaint nagging me, I have found the apps to bring me and my Android to "contact salvation".
You too can experience the joy I have.
