I can only forward messages others send me. I have tried getting own off the Internet AND even saved them AND even made a special directory for them. Can't find them, nor the directory and no instructions came with the phone which was a gift so... I'm STUCK. I'm older than dirt and really NEED clear instructions on how to play with modern gizmos and stay in touch with my family and friends! Can someone PLEASE take a bit of time out to help an "ancient old duck??"
