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've got a brand new Alcatel PIXI 4g phone. If I go into contacts and add a number, then click more fields, the words more fields goes away but there's nothing else to see. I'm on Android version 6.0.

Actually, when you click more fields, it goes to a different screen, with the words USIM contact and a link back to edit contact.

I know people who travel internationally quite often, and they need to:

1) select the countries of interest
2) view a combined calendar of holidays

I hope this exists.

What are the steps to add another user's calendar to an iPhone 6 (with iOS 10.3.3)?

Office 365 is being used to host both of these email accounts.

Is there any way of doing this other than adding the other user's Office 365 account to this user's iPhone (and choosing only to sync the other user's Office 365 calendar? This is a security risk since we don't want the user with the iPhone to go into the account settings and be able to download and reply to the other user's emails).

Hello experts - a personal question for a change...I'm looking to replace my Samsung Galaxy S7 with a new phone.  I'd really like to find one that is fully rooted from the factory or can be easily rooted myself so that I can decide when to do updates and what apps get installed.  Are there any phones out there that come this way without having to jump through crazy hoops?

My phone does not lock since I can not find where to set the PIN.

Also, how do I set the fingerprint to unlock the phone?

Thanks

Hi, My phone is on android 6.0. The notifications sounds have stopped, although it does ring when someone phones. All the sounds I can find (media, alarm, phone ring) are turned up.

Any thoughts? Thanks, we're pretty much newbies.

Hi, I have a need to take a lot of images and video for a certain project I'm going to be working on. I'm going to use my iPhone 6s and a Smooth Q gamble rig.

My question is - is there a simple and quick way to download my media to a hard drive in the field without using a laptop and iTunes?

Is there a stand alone hard drive (or small device) that I can use out in the field while I'm taking my images and video?

Thank you,

Good Morning,

We have a user in our office who is requesting to have a feature to automatically forward all the voicemails coming in to his email on an iPhone. Does anyone know if this is possible somehow ?  

I know on visual voicemail there is an option to manually forward each voicemail to email but he wants it all going automatically offcourse. I called the provider - Bell but the agent had no idea.

If anyone know of any app or any way to automate this let us know :)

Thank you very much!

Why can't I modify/delete an event on my Outlook on my Android phone. I try to delete or modify but when I exit (after saving as I think) it hasn't changed at all. I have recently migrated my calendar from Outlook 2013 to Outlook 365...

Are there any documented studies that wired headphones don't cause tumors or cancer?
How much radiation (all kinds) does wired headphones give off?

I know using my smartphone directly to my ear is not safe, and I know the bluetooth is less safe as well, just
trying to figure out about using wired headphones.

Every time that a user with a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone enters an area that has a Comcast Wi-Fi cable modem she is always taken to a webpage on her cell phone and prompted to sign in to connect to the Wi-Fi network.

This user is a Comcast subscriber at home but doesn't want to be interrupted with what she is doing on her phone or by receiving beep notifications that a Comcast Wi-Fi network is available.

What can be done to disable these types of notifications?

Or what can be done to save the user's Comcast logon username and password within the phone so that every time that a Comcast Wi-Fi network is within range the user's Galaxy S8 phone will automatically connect without prompting the user to manually sign on?

My Samsung Galaxy S8 phone is stuck at the "LTE Plus More Spectrum Better network" screen & won't power off.

It was powered on and the battery level was around 85% when this happened.

Now the phone has simply stopped responding.

I have held the power button down for several minutes but there is no response including while the phone is plugged into power.

The phone is also starting to get hot.

What can be done to fix this?

I regularly (at seemingly random intervals) get the attached message popping up on my mobile device (Android).  If I tap continue or cancel it will go away and act normally.  Sooner or later the messages pop up again.  Sometimes immediately, sometimes a few day pass, sometime weeks pass before it happens again. SEE attached screen shots

Restarting the devise had no impact.  Still getting that message popping up intermittently.

This happens at home when on wifi, at the office when on wifi, on site when on wifi and when mobile on only cellular network.  I'm using the built in android email app to check emails.  It happens if I have wifi disabled and am on cellular network only.  It happens if I have mobile data disables and am on wifi only.

It will go away for periods of up to a week or more, then start happening multiple time an hour.

Seems very random.

If anyone can help that would be great! Capture.PNGScreenshot_20170804-121959.pngScreenshot_20170804-122003.png

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We recently installed a new certificate for Outlook Exchange 2007.  That seems to be working for computers, but cell phones with Outlook email cannot contact the server if the user changes their domain logon password. As long as the password does not change, the user can keep getting email. But when the password is changed, the user cannot change it on their phone. I've tried resetting the domain password back to the original password, thinking since the cell phone never accepted the new password, the old would still work. The cell phone could not connect with the original password either. One phone did ask for a "Credential Storage password". It didn't accept the user's old or new password or the domain admin password.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I am in a small town. The cell carrier that I use has two cell sites here. I have marginal 4g coverage. I have ordered a cell repeater / booster. My only question is  how do I determine which of the two cell sites I am utilizing. Trying to speak to the carrier is a total waste of time. They act as if I am asking for a state secret.
