Ok just got the the thunderbolt yesterday my first smart phone Wow is there a lot of stuff!! Question when you download all the apps do they cost extra will I be charged for them?(I don't even know what half those apps are!) I am very new to smart phones so I no nothing about them. My daughter was checking out my phone and ended up getting the blockbuster icon on the front . How do I get that off of there?

Battery life is not that great I use mine phone as an alarm and I'm afraid that it will go dead in middle of night but don't want to leave it plugged in cause heard that is not good for battery? Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advanced! for any help.

p.s is there anywhere that you can forward an email? Also I have a hard time finding sent text

My daughter was checking out my phone and ended up getting the blockbuster icon on the front . long press the icon (touch and hold it) and you can drag it to the trash bin that will appear. How do I get that off of there?

Battery life is not that great I use mine phone as an alarm and I'm afraid that it will go dead in middle of night but don't want to leave it plugged in cause heard that is not good for battery? that will not harm the battery. however, if you don't want to charge it overnight, you can put it in airplane mode. this will use VERY little battery as it disconnects from all networks so you can't send or recieve texts or calls or access the web....but i do this just before i go to sleep and then when the alarm goes off, i take it off of airplane mode. to do this, press and hold the power button as if you are going to turn it off and select airplane mode....or go to settings-->wireless and networks-->airplane mode.Any suggestions?

learn the long press as in MANY situations you can long press something for options/menus. many of the apps are free or have trial versions.
