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 used this Note 5 for 2+ years with a great experience.  Great phone - large bright screen 5.7" 2560x1440 pixels, fast 4GB RAM and 32GB Storage, 16mp camera.   All good except.. battery life is terrible.  Time for an upgrade.  
Should I stick with Samsung and go with Note 8 or what would be other recommendations?  

Thanks in advance.

I'm going to be starting a project where I need to be able to answer my phone 24 hours a day.

I also need to be able to completely silence all other alerts from my phone so the only times I will be woken up will be if someone calls or texts my Google voice number.

Is there a way to completely turn off new call, email, & text alerts on Samsung Galaxy S8 accept for Google Voice alerts?

Anyone every seen this or know what to do? I got an unlock code for a Samsung Galaxy S6 direct from the carrier and it starts with the letter T. When my phone prompts for the unlock code it is numeric only. I did some searches and found out what to do with a P or W, but no luck finding a T.

I tried just leaving the letter out. Didn't work.

Since the other letters seem to involve pressing the * key multiple times, I tried that to see if it would work, but just got multiple *s in the code.

Anyone seen that before or know what to do?

A client of mine would like to know which email address is associated with his Google Voice number.

We have the client's Google voice number and now need to determine which Gmail email address it is associated with.

How can this be done?

I just signed out of a Google Voice account on my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone.

I have logged in with another Google Voice account which is the one I want to have associated with my cell phone.

The problem is that when I make phone calls using my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone the caller ID for the most recent Google Voice account (510-xxx-xxxx) displays instead of the caller ID for the other Google voice account I have switched back to (415-xxx-xxxx).

I also remember that when I have set up Google Voice numbers in the past that these Google Voice numbers have given me the option to fully integrate Google Voice with my Sprint PCS phone (which is what I want to do now). However I am not given this option at this time.

What do I need to do to fix this issue so that the phone number associated with my 415 area code Google voice number will display whenever I make phone calls?

I'm trying out a few different UK network sim cards.  For EE under the Enable 4G setting it offers, OFF, Voice & Data and Data only.

What has voice got to do with 4G because the other network sims dont mention Voice and data only data.

I recently turned in an iPhone 5 at the end of a project.

This iPhone 5 is now out of state.

Is there a way for me to logon to my iTunes account on the internet and remove my iTunes account from this iPhone 5 without me having to have the iPhone 5 in front of me?

My OS is win 10 Pro 64 bit.  I bought a new Micro USB Charger/Sync cable because my mobile LG phone would no show up on iTunes despite having the latest copy.  Then while researcing one of the solutions was that possibly the drivers are out of date, and this should be the first port of call.
      Is there any free utility for me to scan my pc to see if all my windows 10 drivers are uptodate or not and then go to the particular site and update the driver.  Thank u

Hi Experts,

My LG G5 phone is running Android 7.0.

Frequently whenever my finger is near the bottom right hand corner of the screen, what I call a "menu wheel" pops up in that corner, as shown below:

Android 7.0 screendump showing "the wheel"
How can I disable or uninstall this "feature"?

Regards,

On my mac I use iMessage to send text messages.

What is there on Windows to do that same thing?

Thanks.

So if my understanding is correct from what I have managed to discover, the problem here is that any device connected to a cell phone hotspot, that has an active VPN, will simply route through the public ip connection on the hotspot and not go through the VPN.

Is there a way to 'route' through the VPN any device connected to the cell hotspot?  I have heard that possibly rooting the cell phone may allow this, but I have never rooted a phone before.

Or, is there another way to make this happen?  I am trying to create a secure VPN from our remote offices back to our main office using a cell phone...without having to step up to a LTE router.

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?

There is a blue light Setting that basically reduces the brightness and supposedly the amount of blue light sent

But I'm not understanding this. The feature documentation says this is supposed to be enabled to help people sleep

But if I'm sleeping I'm not using my phone?

Or is this in case I wake up and check something ?

Or supposed to turn this feature on in the evening as I am starting to get tired so when I do check my phone it keeps me up less?

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.

After a dirty shutdown which was resolved, all users are finding that Outlook web mail as well as their phones are no longer immediate. Where mail used to populate immediately, now, every time they open their mail enabled device or access Outlook web mail, it shows the last time all mail was downloaded and takes some time to update to current.

The user checks their mail at 10am and sees the mail to that point. The user then checks their mail at 3pm and for a few moments, only sees the mail from 10am while the message (downloading mail) is displayed on the web access or the phone. after about a minute, all mail is showing up to date.

Is there a setting that I should be looking at to get users to see their mail in real time as it comes in? Thank you.

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?

I'm looking for new(er) unlocked cell phones for two family members.  We currently have iPhone 4S I bought on eBay.  They’ve served us well but now I’m looking for something bigger and newer, probably used or refurbished.  Our carrier is Consumer Cellular which is AT&T.  We don’t use our phones very much and we use basic features, calling, messaging, photos.  I’m thinking of getting some type of refurbished iPhone 6 (6, 6S, 6+ …).  

I have some questions:
1. Should I look for iPhones, since we already have them, or would another type of phone serve us just as well?  Its basic features would have to be as easy to use as the iPhone.  Are there better deals for Samsungs, Huawei… or other types of phones?  Or should we stick with iPhones since we already have them?
2. Can I trust used/refurbished phones?  Can you suggest the best places to buy them?
3. I’m always willing to spend a bit more money to get a lot more value.  Which model of phone should I look for?  6 versus 6S versus….?
4. Any other considerations?
Thanks,
Alan
