Probably returned by some inconsiderate person who tried to "root" the Craig (for reasons only he/she would understand) then decided to simply return it and make it someone else's problem. Wonder what these folks do when a family member or pet disappoints them...?
I am a high-tech person and I find it unfortunate that you were unhappy with your Craig.
I've been able to do everything I wanted to do on my Craig and more -- including turning it into a very large cell phone!
Did you read the manual...? Get tips from other users...?
Too late now, I know...
It's not difficult to connect Craig to PC. Here's how:
make sure Craig is powered up
connect short USB cord that came with tablet to Craig
connect other end to PC
go to "settings" in the Craig -- scroll down to USB Host Mode and turn OFF "USB host" mode (in other words, "un-click" the option...
Mike - you do NOT want to use Android Market because that is associated with Droid cell phones. If you have an android cell (as I do) and you purchase software it will download to your PHONE, when you want is to download to your tablet.
Here is a link to an Android Solitaire program -- not...
I see there is some discussion that wifi "has" been fixed -- others say "has not."
Either way, rooting is pointless if you simply read the manual, download Google android apps onto PC (or SC card) and simply drag/install onto tablet.
Why bother with this "rooting" stuff when it already does...
Just hold the power button for about five seconds until you see the green Android dude in upper left corner. Release power button and let it fully load. Will go through typed word "Android" than logo word "Android" then to the home screen.
Be patient - it seems to take forever the first time...
Is the arrow moving, or is it just a static arrow...? If it's moving, it's still trying to download.
If it's static (not moving) the download is done. Simply drag down on the gray bar and click on the downloaded link to the application.
I find that the easiest way to add software (or remove it, for that matter) is to connect to laptop/PC via USB cord and simply drag downloaded software from computer to tablet's "download" folder. Then use the apk installer on the Craig to install it.
Do NOT root your Craig. IMHO there is...
Well, I'm definitely one step closer to achieving the goal. Was able to install the software you mentioned. Definitely get voice messages from calls received but still see no way to dial out.
Am I missing something obvious...?
Regarding the Craig tablet "tracking you," I think you are confusing GPS with Google Lattitude. As soon as I turned my Craig on it asked me if I wanted to share my location and I simply said no.
With regards to my question on December 4th, I have no idea how re-posting your entire original...
I am curious about those of you who "root" (read: destroy) the Craig tablet and then return it as if it were the fault of the manufacturer.
Doesn't the store get suspicious...? And who do you think is getting/paying for the tablet you've ruined...?
I just don't understand this tactic, I guess.
Got the Craig tablet and really enjoy it. Does everything I need, right out of the box.
I would like to use Google Voice/Chat on it though and can't seem to figure a way to do that.
On my laptop/PC I simply log on to Gmail, scroll down to "Chat and SMS" (under "inbox", etc.) and click "call...
Just an FYI - since starting this thread I got the Craig tablet for Christmas. I don't know why everyone's rooting and whatnot -- but for me it worked terrific right out of the box.
Wifi connect took about 10 seconds to set up. All software works, although I don't need some of it (Facebook...
I've seen a lot of stuff about "Angry Birds," Farmville, Rooting, and a whole bunch of other stuff I consider a total waste of time and energy.
What I want to simply know is: how do the Craig tablets actually perform?
I've done extensive searches on quite a few other sites, and most folks who...
I'm sorry -- but did you say you got Craig tablets for five-year-olds...?
I'm as techno-crazy as the next person, but wouldn't actual BOOKS have been much cheaper and easier -- not to mention age-appropriate...? ;0)
