    I would like to ask what is the meaning of hassle-free.
    I have extracted some sentences from the yahoo news and showing as below:

    The prototype Wellness mobile phone from Japan's NTT DoCoMo Inc. targets users with busy lives who want a hassle-free way of keeping track of their health, according to company spokesman Noriaki Tobita.

    thank you~;)

    Have you checked out the meaning of "hassle" in a dictionary, Funky? This is one of the definitions from Dictionary.com:

    a problem brought about by pressures of time, money, inconvenience, etc.: Finding a decent place to have lunch in this neighborhood is always a hassle.

    Does that help?

    The WR dictionary gives this meaning for hassle:

    fuss, trouble, bother, hassle

    Therefore, you make take hassle-free to mean free of bother or without trouble or inconvenience.
