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 would like the best way to text from a desktop or laptop PC without knowing the carrier?
There are a few ways to send a text message from any PC but you have to know the person's smartphone carrier.
Then you create an email to the person's cell phone number followed by "@" and the carrier's domain.
But unlike a cell phone, there is no need to lookup the carrier.
I have about 180 physicians with their independently owned smartphones, and I would like to send a text to all of them or a small fraction of them.   I would like to do this from Windows 7, or 8 or 10.
Thank you.

Have a verizon plan for 1 cell phone  and 2 GB of data per month.  Comes to 75 bucks a month.  Added 1 more line to the account which will be an extra $20 plus I bumped up to share 4GB for both devices which increased the monthy fee by $15.    I look at my bill and there is an account access fee for $50 and a line fee for $40.  What are these and are there any recurring monthly fees that they didn't tell me about?

How to block a phone number (text or phone call) using TrueCaller?

We downloaded, installed the program successfully. Today two incoming text messages were caught by TrueCaller and we had choices, view, block, etc. We first used to Google to try to identify the senders and then let TrueCaller block them.
Then a 3rd text comes in from a phone number with a different area code than the first two. This one did not cause TrueCaller to open and catch the call. We have searched all programs on the phone and all sites inside of Google Play and we can not find TrueCaller.
As well as watching videos on how to use TrueCaller. If it fails to open itself when a call or text comes in we are not able to find the program.

The only feature we desire is to be able to open the program and insert an undesired number. These numbers may have originally been a phone call or a text. Some of our received text have 6 digit numbers and others have the complete phone number.
Any help?

We have a ZTE phone model N817
This article did not help us:
https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-block-a-number-in-android/

Nor did the manual for the phone:
https://qlinkwireless.com/support/phone-user-manuals/?utm_source=cu&utm_medium=email&utm_content=help-center&utm_campaign=welcome

A call to the service carrier got us a comment that there was a Google app that could be downloaded to block phone calls and phone numbers on any phone.
Anyone know of such an app?

Does the iPhone X have a delete button?

While typing, editing, or modifying emails or texts I sometimes find the need to delete letters or words that are in front of the cursor rather than behind the cursor.

So what do I need to do so I can delete these characters in front of where the cursor is currently located?

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29095078/forward-phone-numbers-with-iphone.html#a42537163

Since you have Verizon, you can do this:

Calli *72 plus the forwarding phone number, including the area code (e.g., *72-555-555-5555). You will hear a confirmation message.

This works with all phones with Verizon service, not just iPhones.

Dial *73 to stop forwarding. You will get a tone or message.

Can I have both phones ring

I this answer only gives me second phone ringing.

Have a building that needs internet access and the the people that were inside said that using their smartphones would be fine.  Here is the problem:  The building is steel and they cannot get cell service AT ALL.  So of course no internet with phones.  Is there a solution to this by placing an antenna or something outside of the building and running a cable to a wireless router inside that the phones can hook up to WIFI?  Or is there a better solution for this scenario?  I was hoping not to have to pull in an internet line that is not there at the moment.

How do I stop the iPhone 7 from requiring a log in!

I go out and take pictures and I swear every tie I put my phone in my pocket, I need to enter the password.

I need it to stop harassing me and destroying my productivity.

Thanks.

I am getting a "Sim card Locked" message on my samsung galaxy s7 phone.  I have tried multiple things already. I have contacted my phone carrier and nothing seems to be helping.  I am looking for some new ideas to try.

Hi,

We noticed that our cellular numbers seems to be available.  One associate called a lead and when answered, the other person told her full name.  After the conversation we found out they the person uses an apps called CallApp in her android.  We searched her number (and ours) and found sites with the associates name and address for example 'locatefamily.com'.

Please explain how this is done? And is our personal info is up for grabs? How can stop this?

Thank you in advance

I have a Samsung galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) from a friend. The display is broken (black screen). And additionally the cell phone is locked. :-(
So I can not make a data recovery/data transfer to another device since all is locked. I have tried Wondershare AND FoneLab software. There is a need to make a special order of pushing the home/power/volume-up-buttons. It onced worked, but not more anymore. Any other ideas how I can get the old data ?
(the cell phone is not rooted, USB-debugging is NOT turned on, I also tried OLG-USB keyboard to connect with no luck)

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and I use Android Auto to connect to my car.  I recently lost the ability to use the voice command "Ok Google". I can still prompt it if I touch the mic on my car dashboard and then voice command whatever I want it to do..

Note: That this has worked before with my current set up. It may of stopped working after a recent phone update, but I can't be sure.

My settings in Android Auto are on to allow voice command. Are there any other settings that might be causing this?

What's the best way to troubleshoot?

We need a stable and reliable video conferencing solution to have a meeting between our US office and some customers in China.  Does anyone have any recent experience or knowledge about which video conferencing solution (e.g. GoToMeeting, Skype, etc.) works well for video conferences between China and the US?

Hello -

I'm looking for a solution for a portable conference phone. Currently I'm using a Polycom Soundstation that works with an analog line. The quality of sounds is obviously is not great so I was wondering if there is a more modern solution that could help with our needs. It would be for a room with about 20 people around a long table so I need to make sure there is decent range for them to be heard over the phone. I was looking into something like a Jabra Speak 710 UC Wireless Bluetooth Speaker device that would work with a cell phone but I'm worried about quality of sound over a cell phone connection pushed to a BT device.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a mobile phone which is a LG Optimus L70 (LGMS323) and the carrier is Ultra Mobile.  I have now a gifted Apple iPhone5.  My question is if I can transfer the SIM card from the LG to my apple iPhone5, and the phone number will function as the old LG.  Thank u and regards

Easy question and just making sure they are 100% correct.
A visitor who will be here awhile has an Apple notebook and Apple phone.
They say wi-fi is only for their laptop and they use wi-fi for music and no internet with their phone. They are implying that their Apple phone can not access the internet. We do not believe them.

They use their laptop to transfer music to their phone and then use the phone to listen to music outside the home. The problem is they are using internet to all hours of the night. They think they can stop using the laptop at a certain hour per "rules" and only use their phone. Talking loudly on a laptop or phone is the same thing to us.
