First post to forum and I hope it ends up in the right place.
I tried at least five times to update to Ermine, reverted from Ermine (Froyo) back to Dingo, and tried again.
Everytime I ended up with a Blue eDGe screen with the time in a large font at the top and two "buttons" at the bottom...an open lock on one side and speaker volume on the other. Pressing keys and tapping the screen did nothing.
FINALLY, I just happened to drag the unlock button to the right and a miracle happened. The blasted screen unlocked and there was my new "desktop".
As you may realize, Android is completely foreign to me but I am a whiz with Windows XP.
I am posting this in case someone else is baffled like I was.
I got an email from my oldest son who explained that Android is basically a smart phone OS and explained why I had to unlock the screen. He also explained Airplane Mode. Since I don't run around like half the population with a phone in my ear this was all new to me.
