    I got a WP8 phone (lumia 620) for my dad. I've tested the phone but otherwise not used WP8 (not good for me but good choice for my dad I think.)
    He's very slow at learning technology, but wanted a smartphone to do basic things: phone, internet, email, maps, and a few others.
    Not interested games, social networking, etc and other kids stuff.
    Is there a good guide to WP8 suitable ? Online video preferable but book is also fine.
    Thanks!

    As far as I know, it's not yet complete, though.

    (If you happen to own a 3DS, we could go ahead and be, er, friends. There's a reason I put that friend code out there for everyone to see. Also, that NNID is also my Miiverse ID. You can also find me there.)

    P.S. Microsoft Mobile Ly, please bring back the cyan in the Lumia line. THE CYANATION COMPELS YOU.

    Thanks but looking for something introductory. Not about setting up the phone because I can do that. Just about using the basic features.
