"Can I use your phone"... shortly followed by "How do I make a call?". It's actually quite amusing :)<br /><br />If you're just getting started with your Smartphone handset then you might want to check out the recent <a href="http://www.ppcw.net/?itemid=1396">how-to guide</a> posted by Carlo Guerrero over at PPCW.Net.<br /><br />"The Smartphones powered by Microsoft's Smartphone 2002 software have a distinct advantage over the basic handsets and normally even the most advanced one found in the market today. They have Pocket Outlook built into them. This I feel is a very powerful feature of the Smartphone. It let's you store numerous entries, and supports more than 40 fields. But with that much information, how do you handle calling a contact or sending a contact an SMS with ease?"<br /><br />This detailed, yet concise guide goes through each of these tasks that you'll need to master before you can take full advantage of your phone. PPCW also has <a href="http://www.ppcw.net/index.php?catid=4&blog=1">other helpful how-to's</a>, including a step by step guide on using your Smartphone as a GPRS modem.
