Cannot install Adobe Flash Player
I cannot watch any TV shows on this phone. It tells me I need to install Adobe Flash Player, and when I try it says that it is not compatible with this phone. But yet, I can watch Youtube videos. This is my first Android, is this true of all Android? Anyone have this problem? Is there other software I could use?

I went to Google Play Store, downloaded and installed Adobe Flash Player 11.1 with no problem, however I don't watch TV on a phone. I do know Wondershare Player, which I use to watch VOB DVD files, fails to load on this phone and I think it's due to a lack of working memory.
Adobe Flash is no longer supported on Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. Hope is not lost though. You can still install Adobe Flash but it cannot be done from Google Play.
Go to http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html
Scroll down the list to Flash Player for Android 4.0 archives. Tap the latest release and the phone will download the .apk. The phone will need to be set to allow installations from unknown sources. Since this is from Adobe itself you are safe. Enable this from Settings > Security > Unknown Sources.
Drag from the top, click on the download and then install. After Adobe has finished installing you can remove the checkmark from Unknown Sources in the Security settings.
You should be set to go with Adobe Flash now.
