    Hey Everyone,

    I finally managed to get my hands on a Samsung Ativ S. I appreciate it if anyone could guide me on what to do next as I'm completely new to windows phone os. So far I've checked for an update and in the process of updating the phone.

    Another question is whether I could tinker around with the phone.

    Thanks,
    Zorgond.

    Welcome!...and congratz on acquiring the Ativ S!
    You can browse the Samsung forum section if you'd like to.
    There are some good long time members who have or had Samsung phones that would be more than glad to help you.

    If you had a smart phone before this one, I'd suggest downloading the Transfer app... the name of which is escaping me. And that might be Nokia exclusive... but if you can find it with my vague name, then it'll help you get situated on your new phone quickly.

    Welcome to WPCentral - the Ativ S is a fine device! Make sure you get an app called Sysapp Pusher. You'll be able to make sure the apps you've got installed, especially the system apps, are up to date.
