I dont know if this will help but... when I lose a PW, I go to my google account, go to settings, go down to advanced settings, scroll down to Passwords and Forms, if I asked the computer to remember a PW, they are there. Hope this helps.

You can enter a password of 0000, which should allow you access, and then be able to change it once you are logged in.

The reason it varies is due to the apps that you may/may not have open. Use a task killer app to see how it can change. Apps typically are still open unless you force them off.

If you are referring to the RAM status bar at the bottom of the running aps tab the number on the left side gives you the current RAM usage of the running aps and the right side number gives you the amount of RAM that is currently not being utilized by applications.

Depending on the number of aps and what those aps are doing those numbers will go up and down, but will always add up to approximately 1 GB of RAM

There are plenty of apps that let you text on your tablet, of course you do need to have a Wi-Fi signal. Just search on google play store for text over Wi-Fi.

Most Stylus's made for a capacitive touch screen will work just fine. They will not damage the screen.

There is no screen protector made for this tablet but one from a similar sized tablet will work and should not interfere with the capacitive touch.

I bought the Logitech Tablet Keyboard for Windows and Android devices and it works great. I would think most Bluetooth keyboards would work with this tablet. I really would like to find a case/keyboard combo like they have for the Samsung or iPad tablets.

Download the free version of "lookout" from the play store. It will scan all apps already on the tablet and scan any new one as well as run periodic scans.

You don't need antivirus on a tablet, but if you feel more comfortable with it on the tablet you can. You can download it on your tablet from the playstore or you can purchase a digital download version from Best Buy also.

Make sure you have the Kindle app installed. Open Google Play Store, click the magnifying glass (search icon) in the upper right corner, and search for Kindle. If it is installed it will give you the option to open the app, if not it will give you the option to install it (which should also automatically create the Kindle icon on your home screen). If you are familiar with opening your app drawer, and don't see the icon listed in it, then it likely is not installed and you will have to install it through google play.
