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.

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

If you keep the mobile phones safe in your pocket or purse, it's still at risk for picking up a virus or leaking data to thieves. Hackers don't need physical access to your phone to steal your personal information or infect the device with malware. They infiltrate your phone with innocent-looking apps or link to it via unsecured Wi-Fi networks. A Technology blogging site (http://www.mobileblog24.com/ ) talking about this problem. Before some days I take my new phone from online shopping site (https://www.buymobile.com.bd/). Some informative site (http://www.bbc.co.uk/ ) also provide disadvantage of hacking. Now I want to know how can protect my mobile phone from being hacked?

I know that I can make free phone calls from Amazon Alexa Echo to another Elexa Echo, but what I want to research fromn my customers is the ability to uise a voice command to Alexa Echo to call a cell number or call a contact.

I want to research how this could be done.  

I'm thinking integration things like a combination of:
  • VPN's to some service,
  • integration with a Personal Contacts app such as Gmail,
  • Use of IOT
  • ITTT

Anything thoughts and directions to get me started would be very helpful.

Thank you,
Robbie.

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?

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

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

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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?

Say, Kindly suggest replacement cell phones for the BB Bold Classic (9900). Mine is in need of replacing.
A phone with a physical keyboard is a big plus but not essential.
