When I am on call, my cell don’t show any notification of another person calling me. How do I know and answer a call waiting??
This depends on your carrier.
In phone app, tap the menu key (3 vertical dots), tap settings – call settings – additional settings, enable call waiting.

how do you print to a network printer?
You need add the printer in settings – printing – as services. Then in any apps that offer printing features, you can print to this printer.
Whenever someone sends me a group message or a picture through messaging I get a screen that says Message cannot download. How do I correct that or can that e corrected?
You need check APN settings for MMS. You can ask your carrier send the mms settings, and you then apply it.

Install it again?

My XT1060 is apparently stuck on mute mic, as people cannot hear me when I call. I have hit the mute/unmute button numerous times. Is this indicative that the phone is defective? I have only had it a couple of months.
does this happen to receiving calls?
William Wiseman says
It only happened on outgoing calls. I don’t get many incoming calls, so I don’t know. I solved the issue by shutting the phone off and rebooting it, but it shouldn’t have happened.
It could be caused by some third-party apps. Some buggy apps may mess up the mic after exiting.
