Say, I am not sure of the model number but this is an entry level, probably the cheapest, Voda phone cell phone on the market. I am trying to ascertain what the specs of the external memory chip that we would require, are. Also, how long have these been available ?
I am trying to ascertain if I have 1 used in an older device and in particular, the Blackberry model. Roughly, how many years ago were they in the Blackberry model?

Please provide me with a URL address of the Sprint PCS add a phone program.

I know several users who all currently have a single Sprint PCS cell phone and are interested in finding the details of how they can add a second phone to their Spring PCS account using the current Sprint PCS promotion that we have heard is going on until the end of June of 2017.

A few questions for some of my older relatives.

My parents pay double for Internet.  They pay for Comcast and MSN. They don't want to cancel MSN because they like their email accounts to be the same, xxxxx@msn.com, for their friends to contact them.

My mother-in-law lives with us.  We want to cancel cable TV and land line phone, and just do NetFlix and our cell phones.  We don't know much about Roku, Stream TV and that kind of stuff.  She likes to watch live TV, especially CNN.  And she doesn't know how people will get a hold of her if we cancel the land line phone.  She doesn't have a cell phone.  Years ago, my wife and I had Vonage, but that doesn't seem to be a thing any more.

Any suggestions???

we have premise exchange 2010 running on small business server 2011.  The OS is 2008r2. we have been having issues where phones stop working properly with email. as far as I can tell there are no errors on the phone. they just do not get or send email.

I have tried to remove the phone from the users profile and having them remove and re add the email account. it works for a couple of days than stops. Exchange seems fine overall.  

I  do not have direct hands on access to the phones in question. the ones not working seem to limited to Samsung GALAXY phones S7 or S5 I think.  

one galaxy that I do have regular access to is a S5 that seems to be fine. I have added an account to the phone and so far it seems ok.

so do I attack from the server and exchange side or could it be the phones?

Odd problem.  My users that are have Verizon as  their cellular service are getting the wrong IP address of my mail server when trying to connect via exchange.  They are getting an IP that I haven't used in years.  I have added screen shots of the AT&T User vs the Verizon user.  I have doublechecked my DNS provider (MediaTemple) and that is all configured correctly.

I have recently seen an increase in my users wanting to use third party messaging apps, specifically WhatsApp, to transfer company information between them and other employees. I am curious as to the community's thoughts on this, and if you allow it, how do you manage it without it getting out of control or presenting security concerns?

Hi. Took a trip to Sri Lanka and got a local sim card there for data. Used mostly only Whatsapp. On my return back to Singapore, I replaced the sim card with my own Singtel one. Now all my contacts have the first two numbers bracketed. Caller ID also does not work but has " Maybe John" when it sort of recognizes the number. Anyone has any idea why this happened and more importantly, any solutions? Thanks

I am looking for an outdoor security camera that can view an area remotely on a rural property. The area has excellent cell service on all major cell service providers, but no internet access. So I am looking for a single camera system that can be mounted on a light pole and stream video through a major cell provider like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, & T-Mobile. This is my main requirement to answer this question.

Optionally, the camera would be able to:
  • Take time laps images
  • Move PTO and Zoom
  • Saves data for later use
  • Operate on solar power
If any of these features are included in the answer, it would be a better answer.

I realize that I can MacGyver a few systems together to make a solution, such as using a WIFI security camera with a WIFI LTE HotSpot device, but I am hoping to find an all-in-one solution that will reduce complexity and the chance of a disconnection/support.

How to define the SMTP OAuth2 for Gmail on an Android 5.1 phone?

On my Windows 10 Phone I have the definition for SMTP like this:

-> smtpa.xxxxxx.yy:465:1

on which the digit 1 means -> SSL/TLS -> regular password

On the Android 5.1 phone for Gmail I should be using something like that, but can't figure what should be the definition in full for OAuth2, for example

-> smtp.gmail.com:465:z

on which the digit z should be meaning -> SSL/TLS -> OAuth2

or, am I on some wrong direction with this?

Anyway, the Gmail account do not send any mails on this phone with several different alternatives on this on several trials ...

Please, help, if there is a solution for this.

Say, I'm looking for a cell phone priced in the region of $200. I have my eyes on the Samsung brand but am not fixed on that particular brand.
Basic functionality is required, a decent camera and possibly even a front camera as well (but not essential). Good battery life and good cell phone reception are the most important functions. A cell phone with a good responsiveness (ie. microprocessor). Your recommendations would be appreciated, particularly if the cell phone is available in South Africa.
Thank you

Thank you considering this question:

I would like to use a single Google Voice account with one phone number which is attached to it's own email account, and a second phone number which is attached to it's own email account.

I would like to be able forward SMS message from the first phone number to the first email address, and forward SMS messages from the second phone number to the second email address.  Is this even possible?

I am hoping to use the Google Voice Android app to be able to make calls from either number.  Is any of this possible, and if so, how could I set that up?

good day,

i am trying to better understand if there is a limitation on the number calls that can be forwarded from a cell phone that is set to forward calls.  in other words, if a call comes into a cell phone that is configured to forward to another number, and that call is answered, how many additional calls can come into the cell phone again and again and be answered.

i am trying to understand if there is in fact a limitation here with the carrier in terms of how many calls can be forwarded and simultaneously active.  to better clarify here is an example:

cell number 555-555-5555 is forwarded to landline 777-777-7777.  lets assume that 777-777-7777 is a PBX and it has no limitation on number of simultaneous calls it can receive inbound.

call 1 comes into 555-555-5555 and forwarded to 777-777-7777 and extension 100 picks up
call 2 comes into 555-555-5555 and forwarded to 777-777-7777 and extension 101 picks up
call 3 comes into 555-555-5555 and forwarded to 777-777-7777 and extension 102 picks up
and so on...

how does the carrier handle these forwards? what would be the limitation here?
