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 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.

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,

I have an LG K7 cell phone. When I type a paragraph and proofread it, I may need to make a correction in the middle of the paragraph. So in this paragraph I'm going to correct the word make in the previous sentence.

I put the cursor at the end of the word make, and hit the delete key. No problem. I hit the delete key one more time and garbage appears. Often it is the last word I typed. In below paragraph is what I see after I hit the delete key twice.


I have an LG K7 cell phone. When I type a paragraph and proofread it, I may neecorrect a correction in the middle of the paragraph. So in this paragraph I'm going to correct the word make in the previous sentence.

It looks like the delete key did a lot more than delete the character 'k'.  I had:

    "need to make a correction"

and with one delete, I get

   "neecorrect a correction".

The 2nd delete caused a lot more than one char to be deleted, but the weird part is that it pasted in something that I had already typed.

How can I make this weird behavior stop?

Btw, the above is not an artificial example. It is what actually happened right now in asking this question.

If I carefully highlight the words I want to change, I think I have done better when I type in the correction. But I just want the typing to go easier.

My iPhone Xs is running iOS 12.1.

How do I remove email addresses that pop up when I am typing in the first few characters of an email address within the To: or BCC: field within an email on my iPhone?

There are certain email addresses that always appear within the email address auto suggestion field that I no longer use that I need to make sure are removed.

What is the easiest way of doing this?

I am looking to sync the GAL for an on-prem Exchange 2010 environment with the contacts list for every users' exchange mailbox.

We need all of the contacts in the GAL to be able to sync to mobile devices so that mobile users have access to phone numbers that are kept up to date in active directory. This will also remove the issues we are seeing where users do not know how to utilize the GAL and are keeping spreadsheets of everyone's phone number.

I have located a couple of paid services that will accomplish this, most notably CircaSync, but we are trying to avoid the use of third party tools. I also know we can get a little creative with an automated powershell script, but I am trying to avoid a jerry-rigged setup that is likely to become an issue to support down the road if it ever stops working once we are already reliant on it.

Who has accomplished this?

Hi Android Experts,

I'm after an app/program that will allow me to organize all the icons on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ 256GB 4GX phone using my computer.

I recall being able to do this with my iPhones because iTunes displayed the phone configuration on screen and I could drag and drop apps and icons around on my computer screen while my phone was connected, and then the iPhone would update itself with the changes I'd made. I found this highly helpful and an easy way to organize my icons.

I have a LOT of icons and apps installed on my Android phone and organizing them the way I like in a native way on the phone I find to be a pain, so I'd like something that will allow me to do it the way iTunes let me do it with my iPhones.

Ie: Display my Phone screen configuration on my Windows 10 computer screen and allow me to organize my icons using my computer and then have my Android Phone update itself to the configurations that I'd selected on my computer screen. I'm happy to pay for a program to allow me to do this, so it doesn't have to be free.

I've looked through Google Play Store and see a lot of App Organizers, but they all seem to be just apps that are only installed on the Android phone, rather than allow me to connect the phone to the computer and do my organizing there.

Ie: Connect my phone to the computer so I can use my computer to update the icon positions on my phone instead.

Either this isn't available, or perhaps I'm using the wrong search terms on …

Hi Experts,

I recently consolidated a number of contacts that were duplicated in my contacts list on my Android S9+ mobile phone.

Now I've noticed that a lot of the consolidated contacts have the wrong avatar of the persons face, in many cases, the avatar on the contact is of a totally different person than who the contact in my phone really is.

Can anyone explain the best way to fix this so that the pictures on the contacts are correct? Please include step by step instructions if possible as I'm relatively new to Android phones, being an Iphone user for many years.

Many thanks for any help.

Regards, Andrew
