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.

Respond with a text message automatically.

I have been brainstorming for a while regarding wording that is least likely to upset even the most demanding person or client and I am getting closer.

I have come up with this auto-text message so far:  

I am sorry that I missed your call. Since this phone is currently set up for outgoing calls and text messages only, please respond with a text. This will give me a chance to wrap up whatever I am in the middle of, and give your call the undivided attention that it deserves. Thank you for understanding and I look forward to talking with you.

What are your thoughts about the approach to the auto-response and how can I implement it so that it happens automatically, after x rings, or after I have forced it to be passed to the caller even sooner.

This approach is intended to make communication clear more effective for both parties.

I have a text area with auto text choices that come up when I receive a call. If I catch it fast enough, I can respond with text but if I don't, I can't get the choices back.

It says collapse automatically to an area at the very bottom of the screen which is handy, but even that area seems to disappear at about 3 seconds or less.

I would like for that area to stay on the screen even after the call has ended so that I could just press it and send an auto text.

Assistance in making this happen is greatly appreciated.
My Google Note 8 is stuck in reboot loop.

I've tried recommended methods and even though several statements seem to indicate a firmware issue as opposed to a hardware one, no solution seems to be effective.

I need to find another phone to replace this defect.

Suggestions through Amazon on something that won't break the bank would be greatly appreciated.

I would prefer a Google device with stock Android and unlocked.

I will put in my SIM from ATT when I get it and hope for the best.

I have a Samsung Note 9 phone.

Sometimes I would get a call from someone while being in a call already with another person.

The person trying to call me never knows that I was in a call with someone else so don't ring back.

To the person trying to ring me, their phone rings for a bit and then goes to voicemail.

I would like to have the person trying to call me in this situation given a message saying "person in a call" or busy.

Is there a setting for this on Note 9 phone?

My WiFi is not connecting to 2 difference cell phones.  It has been connected successfully for weeks, suddenly not connected and won't reconnect.  It won't recognize the WiFi password.  The WiFi is fine on a laptop and a tablet.  I am not able to log into the router (won't accept my password).  Tried resetting the router and restarted the computer - no change.  I have a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900, Model R7000.  What can I do?

Someone spoofing my number and calling another person with mortgage offerings and other services.  
The area codes and prefixes of my number and other recepient's number are always the same.  Last four digits are always different.  Both numbers are with AT&T carrier in US.

Anyone had experience how to deal with it?  
Any solution besides keep blocking them?  Can AT&T do something about it?
Is there an app that I can also use at a flashcard for IT related learning?  I'd like to make notes on my computer and then view them on the app on my phone.  I have an Apple phone.
Need a LAN line for my home, but don't want to pay much.  I don't have internet or Cable TV at my home.  I also don't want a cell phone either, just need an actual phone at home for the lowest price possible.
How do I get my PUK code

I am working on an iOS application (in nativescript) that needs to get and post some data to an API in the background each 5 minutes. Now it seems that iOS is closing my application so I took a look at the long running tasks section of https://docs.nativescript.org/core-concepts/ios-runtime/how-to/BackgroundExecution but I fail to see how I should configure an interval now.

Also while it works correctly on the simulator (not thinking about the interval) with the debug fetch command, I can't get it to work correctly on a real device.

How do I get the puk code for my phone?
I have a user that is set up on an Exchange 2013 and have been using Outlook 2016 for a couple of years.
Many people have email on their phone. I decided to set this user up to receive email on his phone.
I set up email on multiple phones without an issue. This one account is unable to get email on his phone.
I know I’m using the correct id and password. The server is the same for all other users and they can all connect.
Each time we get an error that the server does not connect.
We have attempted to set email on not just one phone but three different phones (Two Iphones and one Samsung). The phones have been on the corporate Wi-Fi and off using their own data plan.

We have confirmed that Active Sync is enabled. We have copied his AD account and then attempted to set up email on a phone with this copied account. It also failed. I then removed all Member of Entries under his AD Profile and it still failed.
I am creating an Android application that allows users to add notes, organize them into categories, and set reminders for the notes in the form of push notifications.

I am able to schedule reminder notifications when the phone is on. However, if you turn the phone off and then turn it on later, or restart it, then set multiple notifications: one that has a scheduled time after the phone has been rebooted or turned on again and one that is scheduled to go off at a time after the phone has been rebooted or turned off, then both notifications go off immediately after the phone turns on or is rebooted.

The expected behavior is that the notification that is scheduled at a time after the phone has rebooted fires at the scheduled time instead of right away.

Please see RebootReceiver.java and NotificationScheduler.java below and let me know if you need additional files from my project or information.

How to enter which the code to an ifhone
I am looking to receive SMS text messages on Ubuntu. Have tried At&t/Cricket wireless SIM cards with Huaewei (USB modem) and Nokia phones connected via USB and no luck. Looking for a complete solution. Will pay reasonable amount for the right solution. Preference is Ubuntu but will consider other linux flavors.
Hi everyone. I have an Android 7 device. It's not rooted. I need a file manager/utility that allows me to view the files & folders of the root directory; specifically the System and Data partitions. I don't need 'Write' permissions, just Read-Only. I want to copy some files. In other words, I don't want to root the device. I just need read-only access. I would prefer a file manager type app but I'm open to other methods.

I have tried Solid Explorer. It shows the System Partition but not the Data partition. Thanks.

Hello experts, I've got a ZTE model Z933. A while back, my wi-fi stopped working on it for some unknown reason. I took it to my local Telus dealer and they couldn't figure it out - they said I would have to reinstall the OS. That seemed painful as I'd lose all my stuff on my phone (music, contacts, pictures, apps) and have to put it all back on after. Anyway, I don't use wi-fi often on my phone, but I think I will soon have a need to so I'd like to get it resolved (in the easiest way possible!).
    Here's how it's behaving now - when I go to my "Settings", and click the slider button for "Wifi" over to the ON position, it goes to ON, but it doesn't turn blue and activate like it used to. If I just click on "Wifi" itself to go into that screen, it says "To see available networks, turn wifi on" (whereas before it would always show any networks it detected). From that screen, if I click the slider button over from OFF to ON, it flashes blue VERY briefly, goes to ON... but is not blue.
   Can anyone offer any advice please? I have android version 4.3.

How can I disable or remove Sha-1 and sha-256  from android phone causing  multiple security issues?
OnePlus 5 Android cell phone does not sync with my 2016 Prius 2. The bluetooth (phone and audio) connection works, but it is hard to dial out from the car because no contacts are transferred. There are over 500 contacts in the phone's contact app, and when I try to manually update to the car, the process crashes with an error message (generic, not meaningful) at about record 100.

Anyone have any ideas?
Hi, we have Verizon wireless and using the zBoost - Directional Dual-Band Indoor Antenna
Model: YX027-PCS-CEL

It is getting old and not really helping boost the signal, what other better models are out there you recommend?
We currently have MaaS360 and want to come away from that due to the limited functionality and lack of helpful features. We would require something that provides more control over the device. So that we can allow and restrict apps as necessary.

EDIT: We also push 3 apps currently and would require that feature as well. Something does a fairly good job at auditing the devices within the company.
I bought a phone off kijjjiji and it turns out when I went to hook it up that it had been reported lost or stolen but yet there was no information about how to return it to owner so how can I still use this phone
