    Thanks, John. I’ve read several of your posts and they’re all very helpful for someone new to Android. I’m pretty close to dropping my iPhone to get the HTC One. Not expecting major updates with the 5S or the 6, but we’ll see.

    To echo other comments, this was very helpful, thanks.
    I have got another request. I know how to change the sounds for ringtones, and contact tones, and alarm sounds, but cannot work out how to change the notification sound apart from the bog-standard tunes that come supplied with the phone.
    On my last HTC Desire HD my notification sound was the theme from The Wire. I would like to use it again but am stumped. How do I do it??

      I’ve actually discovered by trial and error how to customise your notification sound. You need to connect via USB to your PC, find the Notification folder, then copy your desired MP3 files to this folder. Any song or MP3 file that you put in the notifications folder will be added to the list of available notifications on the handset.

      Hey presto, you can now have your own customised notification sound

    Can you add apps to the top scroll down bar where power save is located? .

    Whenever we are getting a call and the phone is locked we need to pull the lock button vertically or swipe the screen. However once we do that there is no option to decline the call it automatically connects the call. how can we decline or accept a call without unlocking the phone
