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.

On my mac I use iMessage to send text messages.

What is there on Windows to do that same thing?

Thanks.

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.

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?

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.

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

Hi

what is the best and safest method of transferring pictures in a work environment ?

Currently one of my employees takes pictures within the work environment on his smartphone and transfers to PC with a USB cable.  He uses the smartphone as it is always with him and is convenient to take the pictures of the products. Is it safe to connect the phone to the PC in  terms of virus attacks and malware attacks from the smartphone ? What other methods could be used ?  I am thinking that emailing the pictures would be safer as they would then come in and get checked with the AV.  If I go this way then I have to get wifi installed in that part of the building ?

any suggestions or recommendations would be welcome

thanks
Mike

Iphone 6 plus made for Verizon wireless using pre paid service from tmobile

Bought at bestbuy new 14 months ago

Difficult to hear callers now
Can this be taken to apple store for free or low priced repair

Not sure if apple care or warranty was purchased. BestBuy does not have my phone number and my credit card expired so i have a new credit card number. I also do not have receipt or box.

I dont want to set appointment at apple store just to have apple tell me high price and phone needs to be mailed for 5 days.

I would rather just go to local small business cell phone store or computer shop

I plan to release a book on PDF, at first. That's before I think about a printed version and before I invest in any particular platform.

1) On what devices will PDF not functionally work?
2) On what devices will PDF not work in practical terms?

I am most interested in making it available on many platforms, then I will be interested in offering it in the preferred technologies for certain platforms.

I would later consider a tool like Xamarin for cross-platform development. I will avoid native apps...

Thanks

full & whether to save into microSD (I can't recall the exact message).

How can I choose what to save: say selective Whatsapp threads / groups    messages and images

Q2:
Can I choose to save photos in galleries & SMSes into the microSD as well?

I'm an iphone user. I have only had iphones. I currently have the iphone 6 plus.
I have AT & T as my service provider.

I was thinking of getting the Samsung galaxy S8.
I want to have both phones.
I still want to keep my iphone.

I never had an android phone so was I wondering the following.

Is it possible if I own both phones to use both phones with my current AT & T service.

What I mean is,  can I use my iPhone on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.
Then on Tuesday and Thursdays take the sim card out of my iphone and put it in the galaxy s8 and then use that phone on these days?

Will that work?

Or

Is there some other way that I can do this like with some adapter or something?

Has anyone does this before?

We recently put in mobile data cards for all Exec's in the Company. We were asked if there is a way for these computers to send and receive text message to and from these computers. I am completely unaware of if this is possible and seeking out documentation is a little tough to find. Maybe someone here has had experience with this?

I am needing to transfer data from a Motorola Moto (not sure which version at this point) to an iPhone 7.  Money is a factor - as in I don't have access to any at this time.  Any recommendations on trusted software to make this happen would be greatly appreciated.

Hello

I quite often make visits to buildings where there is no Wi-Fi I can utilise. In the meetings, I'd like to be able to use my laptop and have it connected to my work VDI.

I have a personal MacBook Air with a USB port. What is the best solution to have in order to connect to a 3G/4G connection via Cell to provide me internet access at an efficient price? Since I am actually connecting to my work VDI, this will only be light browsing traffic, no downloads or anything.

Thanks in advance.

Hello:

On my Windows 7 laptop, I have downloaded the Android Studio and will be developing Android apps, of course.

I have an iPhone 7--not an Android phone.

Do I have to purchase an Android phone, in order to view the apps that I'll be creating?  If so, then I'll go out and buy one, certainly.  

Or, is it possible to review on my iPhone the Android apps that I'll be creating?

Thank you!

John

On Demand Webinar - Networking for the Cloud Era

This webinar discusses:
-Common barriers companies experience when moving to the cloud
-How SD-WAN changes the way we look at networks
-Best practices customers should employ moving forward with cloud migration
-What happens behind the scenes of SteelConnect’s one-click button

I stumbled on this 'free' service through a website that promotes deals on the web.

Figured I'd give it a try and it can't hurt to have a spare sim with live service but I have a bunch of questions and their tech support is the most useless I have ever experienced.

Wonder if others here have used this service and can play tech support for them since theirs functionally doesn't exist.

212 in new york city
310 in los angeles

those two areas codes on a cell phone are a status symbol

But I am from a technical background and I know that older phone numbers have longer history so more likely to get spam

Does a phone number ever get less spam

Are you advising clients to change their number to the new area code (that is not a status symbol)
