We recently installed a new certificate for Outlook Exchange 2007.  That seems to be working for computers, but cell phones with Outlook email cannot contact the server if the user changes their domain logon password. As long as the password does not change, the user can keep getting email. But when the password is changed, the user cannot change it on their phone. I've tried resetting the domain password back to the original password, thinking since the cell phone never accepted the new password, the old would still work. The cell phone could not connect with the original password either. One phone did ask for a "Credential Storage password". It didn't accept the user's old or new password or the domain admin password.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I am in a small town. The cell carrier that I use has two cell sites here. I have marginal 4g coverage. I have ordered a cell repeater / booster. My only question is  how do I determine which of the two cell sites I am utilizing. Trying to speak to the carrier is a total waste of time. They act as if I am asking for a state secret.

How can I make the show desktop menu stay at bottom of a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone?

Currently I have to push up at the bottom of the Samsung Galaxy S8 screen to make this menu appear. I would like for it to stay at the bottom of the phone screen at all times.

How can I prevent a Samsung Galaxy S8 from constantly prompting to join Wi-Fi networks?

If the phone finds a Wi-Fi network and has the password saved for that network I want it to join that network but otherwise if it finds a Wi-Fi network such as a Comcast Wi-Fi network that a Comcast subscriber can join I don't want it to prompt to join that network.

This Android phone also has the secure Wi-Fi app installed.

My parents are both on t-mobile and both have iPhone 5s.
Occasionally their voicemails come few hours late.  Text messages are even worse.  Once I reboot one of their phones and received a dozen of texts messages from two weeks ago.

Is that an issue with t-mobile network or something else?  This is in US.
Thanks.

This has just recently started happening.
On making or receiving a call my phone is switched to loudspeaker. The loudspeaker icon Is greyed out. Clicking the icon turns it green and the phone is still on loudspeaker. A second click greys the icon again and the phone reverts to normal operation. It's becoming annoying having to switch it every time.
I have moved a whole load of apps to the sd card, but I haven't loaded anything new recently.
Can anyone suggest how I can stop it being on loudspeaker for every call please?

I just finally got a iPhone 7 but it got deactivated before I could send my pictures to someone from my old Samsung flip phone. Can I somehow get them back. Everyone keeps saying no. Someone suggested buying a pay as you go plan and reactivating the phone. Will this even work?

What is the process to add the clock app icon to the main Samsung Galaxy S8 screen's list of icons?

Currently I have to search for the clock app and I would prefer for this icon to be located on the main Samsung Galaxy S8 screen so that I can easily access it.

Dear Verizon,
     I had a cell phone that did get kind of damp, so that did put it out of use. (Question: Do you know of ANY way to bring it back into use?)
     Now I did find this older model (Verizon (and I have been a Verizon customer for several years)) that did still works, so I am using it at the moment. When I did go to the Columbia, Maryland office (it's at 6480 Dobbin Center) and they said that they didn't have the proper tools - cable-S - ?? to move the phone No. from the cell phone (my older one that works) to a smart type phone that I now have. The older phones Model is: BST195ASE (it looks like that (small digits) and VZW: SAM650BATS. Since I am a Verizon customer it would seem logical that if they don't have one in-house they could get one from headquarters. HMMM ? ? ? ? I was told that it was a phone that was maybe eight years old. HMMM ? ? ? ? Do you have the proper equipment or ?? ***REMOVED BY MIT***
     Have a Good Day,
John Hamilton

Hi,

How to mute sounds when i screen power off on sound moto4g plus phone

please advise

Hi, It's been quite a while since I connected my phone to my computer so I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but can't imagine what it might be.  I connected the phone to one usb port and got no action on the phone or the computer. I switched over to another usb port and no action.  I then switched cables and tried both usb ports and no action.  Finally, I rebooted my computer and again no action.

I was expecting to see something show up under This PC or in the Device Manager but I see nothing.  A couple of times I heard a faint sound from the phone, like it connected to something but that was it.  

Is it possible that I have to change my settings either on the phone or the computer?
Thanks in advance.
