Update: I went to the store the other day and found out why some things are giving me troubles.  It's not me being clueless, first for everything, it's my phone plan.  When I had the Razr, the sales manager disabled several things that the Razr couldn't do anyway in order to get the price down.  My data plan was set at 600MBs, yes, MBs, and was disabled which is basically like zero.  So, when I'm on a wi-fi, I can do some things.  Other than that, not happening.  If I want to pay double tho, I can get a regular plan more suited to my phone.  I plan to keep my cheapy plan for the time being. I think I disabled a lot of stuff you mentioned Wol.  I do want to get rid of that google microphone thingy but haven't quite figured out how or what I can use in place of it that doesn't have the microphone thingy.  It's not like I can cut the cord on the microphone since I want to talk on the phone to people.  ;-)  I did manage to get it set up so that I can upload my contacts and such, just in case I run over the phone or something with the car or my tractor.  On the SSHelper thingy.  I installed it a while back but was unable to test it.  Finally I took a couple pics, just random junk really, and tested it.  FYI, it requires a file manager not a web browser.  I used sftp for mine and was able to see my pics and also able to copy some ringtones over to the phone.  So, SSHelper does work on the Galaxy J2 at least.  Mine for sure.  I have one thing I have not been able to figure out tho.  I accidentally imported my contacts to the phone twice. When I go to the contacts part, it shows Phone twice.  I can't figure out how to delete one of them.  No need having two copies. I'm sure there is a trick somewhere, I just have to find it.  lol  Dale :-)  :-)
