Once logged in you can go back anytime to your showcase by clicking your name from the section where the login box was.
This will be a general guide for creating complete timelines that will give you a neat showcase and Mowned's users better overall statistics. Make sure you check About/FAQ page too.
You may check some examples of good Showcases before starting.
Once you've connected to Mowned, you will be redirected to your mobile devices dashboard.
If you still use the device as MAIN PHONE leave the "Year to" field to blank (or set it to 0).
Put your mouse cursor over a cell phone and click on Like :) or :( (dislike) for rating. Good phones in your eyes will take a like, bad cellular phones a dislike.

By completing accurate owned years you get interesting insight at a glance on your public showcase and you help at general Mowned statistics.
For example how often do you change your cell phones or the year when you got your first mobile device.
If you're still owning a mobile device then show it by checking "Still own this device?" option. A nice information to have for showing your phones conservation in time and brand royalty.
Want to share your mobile passion in words? Remembering about different phones that matched with something in your life. Nostalgia..
You attached to each of your devices. You hated this, you loved that. Share your opinion with all. If you have an alias set, the reviews and rates will appear on each specific device page automatically.
By setting an alias your timeline will become public and you can share it across the Web. This operation is required if you want to create your forum signature.
If you have a complete timeline, some fun Timeline facts appears in your public showcase. An example below:
The cell phones timeline signature can be used in forums, sites and so on. If you generated a timeline signature and you "Like via Facebook" your own public showcase, the picture of owned cell phones should appear on your Facebook activity/wall.
At the moment the signature comes in 3 formats, in the future new format(s) may appear.
The year of the phones you're still owning will be in black, otherwise in silver.
