This phone does not support Adobe Flash actually. Flash has been dropped from ICS and only works sporadically on Gingerbread, varying on the phone manufacturer.

Dear buddy2323,

Yes, you can do "Speech to Text".

1. Go to the person you wish to text.

2. Tap/Touch in the "open bar", where you would type text.

3. After the "Cursor" starts blinking or is in the Texting area, Tap/Touch the "Microphone" Icon on the bottom left of the Android Keyboard.

4. It will say "Record/Speak". Speak what you wish to text. (it will take a few seconds to translate what you have said).

5. Proof what is on the screen to be sent, as it doesnt always pick up the correct word.

6. If a word or two are "wrong"....touch the wrong word, this will bring up a "pointed box cursor"( you can move the "pointed box cursor" that comes up to the wrong word(s) and "backspace" to clear them.)

7. You can then type the correct word or re- speak it(by Tap/Touching the "mircophone" icon again.)

**You can set up "Speech Recognition" to your voice, and if certain Cuss, bad/dirty words are used, the app will not translate them(you will get the "**" symbol. This has to be "unchecked" in settings to allow total free uncensored "Speech to Text".

if you have a windows phone or able to connect via USB cable, you can SYNC to outlook. Then Export the File as a CSV then import to Gmail.
Assuming your phone does not have an SD card, you most likely can not do this.

You might want to give the Phone make model before asking questions about how to use it?

What you can do however, is manually add the contacts to gmail, and login to gmail using the phone and allow it to sync. That is the simplest way.

Charging/USB ports have been pretty much standardized on Android devices.

You will need a microUSB cable.
