Cell Phones

A cellular phone (also known as a mobile phone, cell phone, hand phone, or simply a phone) is a telephone that can make and receive telephone calls over a radio link while moving around a wide geographic area by connecting to a cellular network provided by a mobile phone operator, allowing access to the public telephone network. Mobile phones that offer services such as text messaging, email, Internet access, business applications, gaming, photography and more general computing capabilities are referred to as smartphones.

I have many voicemails that I transferred from my Android phone Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with a file extension .smil. that I can not listen to . Can you advise me on what to use in order to listen to them? Also, why does the voice mail gets recorded in this file extension not other ones like .avi or .mp3?  Thank you

Introduction to R

R is considered the predominant language for data scientist and statisticians. Learn how to use R for your own data science projects.

I'm after recommendations for a sim card for Travelling to Europe, specifically Portugal, England, France, Switzerland and Italy.

Just want something that is predominantly for data but has enough phone credit for calling ahead to hotels, restaurants etc.  It also needs to work across all the countries without having to change all the time.

Here are the specs on the phone being offered through our carrier.

It does not say which version of Android. We currently have Android ? and need 5.0 or higher. The above phone is our "only" choice. Keep what we have (which we acquired about 2 years ago and which has Android 4.4.4) or take the one above which was released last year. Should it have Android 5.0 or higher?

Is there a way to send text messages to a group without displaying the phone numbers / ID's of the members in the group thus achieving the same results as blind copying contacts on an email?  I use both android and ios phones.

My current phone is LG Expressions Plus (LM-X410ASR)
It's only been two weeks and it definitely seems to be slowing.
2 GB Memory
Based on this article, it seems that 2 gb - 4 gb is the standard recommendation.

FEATURES NEEDED ON A NEW PHONE
  • Built-In Wireless Charging
  • Built-In Fingerprint
  • Unlocked for Any GSM SIM

PMI ACP® Project Management

Prepare for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam, which formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques.

I have an old Nokia 2720. I had it when I was in Canada 10 years ago. I just charged it, and it took a charge, but obviously the sim card is no longer good. I plan to take it up on a trip to Canada and buy a prepaid SIM card so I have a Canadian phone while I'm there.

Is there any way to know if the phone is viable? If I take my Mexican SIM card and plug it in, will that work? Thanks, I'm not that good at cellphones, I don't use them much.

We have a job office that is in an area that can’t get Internet service directly into the office. We have provided them with a MiFi hotspot and they say the service is not acceptable. They also say that the cell phone coverage in the area is pretty good so I am curious on why the Internet service is not. The question I have is :  Is there anything that can be done to strengthen the signal of the MiFi or are there any other ways that I could get a better signal strength in this situation?

Need to save money on Verizon Portable MiFi

I spend about $45/month for unlimited bandwidth and wonder if I can save money with pay-as you go?

I use almost none each month.

Who can I switch to and still have the Verizon cell network, or similar?

Thanks

I need to find a phone number different from my cell phone that will let me send SMS group texts.

Google voice allows me to have a different phone number than my cell phone but won't let me do group texting.

I need an alternative.

For Whatsapp group, a member can stop receiving further
chats by exiting the group but for a 1-to-1 whatsapp, this
can't be done.

Is there some sort of firewall app to block further communications
with an existing contact party in Whatsapp (as well as SMS)?

1. SMS (mass text) allows you to get individual responses.
2. MMS (group MMS) allows people to respond to the group.
With either message format, you can name the group and the group doesn't see the name, but, you can't remove people from the group after you name it.

Q: How do I remove people from an SMS group?

I am using a laptop running Windows 10.  It's been a long time since I've used this computer, and needed to reinstall iTunes to synchronize my phone.  After installing the iTunes it asked me for my username and password to access the program.  The password I thought was correct didn't work, so I selected "forgot my password".  They then had me enter my email and phone number, but I never got the message that they said they sent to my phone (I've tried doing this several times).  So I hit "cancel" - since all I really need iTunes for is synchronizing my Outlook.  But when I hit the iPhone icon in iTunes I got the following message:

iTunes message
Can you help me get it up and running?

Thanks,

The fastest way to make my phone more responsive seems to be to click on the box in the lower right corner of my android.

This brings up the "Recent Apps" list.

Swiping down on this list moves all the recent apps to the bottom, which allows you to click on the "Clear All" button.

This is essentially three steps.

I would like to find a way to make this process of clearing all the recent apps much more seamless and less hassle.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Can I buy used iphone in US and use in different country?  Or does it have to be unlocked because there could be a different service in other countries.  GSM vs. CDMA for example.
Please advice.

Google's "Play Music" app appears to be the default app for playing mp3 files from my android phone.  However, I need a way to:

1. See where I am in the clip without the screen changing.
2. Pause with only my voice.
3. Back up ten seconds with only my voice.

I did manage to locate an app from the Google Play Store (top non-sponsored choice) based on ratings, called "Bits Mp3 Player", but it, unfortunately, does not appear to contain any of those 3 key features that I am looking for.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.
