Back when I wrote about getting a new phone, I said this:
…and I bitched and moaned about that for a few hundred lines.
Well… GOOD NEWS !!!
I can now report that this can be changed, thanks to New Wife, who asked me if I’d done the latest update. Of course I hadn’t, so she gave me a gentle slap on the head and said, “Do it now.”
Okay, I can take a hint as well as the next man, so I did that with only some token grumbling. Then she said, “You’re going to love me for this.”
Gentle Readers, all is well and my equanimity has returned to only mild annoyance and irritation (my natural state). For those people who have Motorola phones or (I think) use Android operating software, the command string is:
- SYSTEM NAVIGATION
- [select] 3-BUTTON NAVIGATION
…and the familiar “Back / Home / Show Open Programs” symbols will be restored.
Don’t thank me; thank New Wife.
And by the way, this option may have been available from the word go, but I never saw it and nor did New Wife. We think it was part of an update, but we can’t be sure. Whatever:
