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.

We have an iPhone and the password was lost. So the phone is locked. It was purchased in the USA and desire to ship it to Cambodia or Vietnam.

What does the locked means for them in one of those places and anything about a 5c that will be an issue?

I've set my phone to Developer mode by tapping the build 7 times.

Every time I connect my phone to my PC it asks me

    Use USB for file transfer?
   ------------------------------------
  Allow file transfer using computers
  which you trust when connected.
       Cancel                    Yes

Need the phone to stop asking me the question every time.  Any way to stop this?  Read that going to Developer Mode was the key.  Seems to not work.  Have selected both Cancel and Yes.  Still the same.

What do you think is happening?

Many thanks,

Please provide me with a list of Android apps similar to Audible that will continue playing a group of .MP3 files from point where playback last left off.

I listen to a lot of lectures and meetings that have been saved in .MP3 format and the problem when I use the built in Android app on my Samsung Galaxy S8 to play these files back is that this app will not continue playing the .MP3 files from the point where I last left off listening to these files (even after I have followed suggestions that should fix this issue).

These meetings or lectures usually consist of around 50 MP3 files that are all 20-30 minutes long. I listen to these while I am driving, and it is very easy to forget exactly where I left off when I go back to resume listening to these audio files later.

Resuming playback from the point where you last left off is something that the Audible audio book playback app does quite well and this is what I need for these groups of .MP3 files that I listen to.

What Android apps will do this?

How can I resume listening to an MP3 on a Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone at point where playback was last paused with the built in Galaxy S8 media player app?

When I later go back to resume listening where I had left off I am usually not able to resume at the point where playback left off at the point where I was last listening.

How can I resume at the point where I last left off?

Some of the Android apps (like the File manager app found here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alphainventor.filemanager) that I have been loading on my Samsung Galaxy S8 have been putting adds on my cell phone.

Is there any way of paying for these apps to prevent them from putting adds on my cell phone?

The issue is accessing files off my cell phones via USB cables.
This is a fairly complex problem.  
I have two cell phones: (a) Motorola G Play, Model XT1609 (herein "Motorola"); (b) Kyocera C6740 ("Kyocera".)
I have two laptops using windows 10: (a) IBM T61; (b) Lenove T430.
The T61 is able to fully access files inside the Kycera.  But when I plug in the Motorola, the T61 does not even recognize the phone (i.e., there isn't even an icon in "This PC.")
The T430 recognizes the Motorola in "This PC", but when I click in the icon, I get the "folder is empty."  There is no access to anything internal. When I remove the 64 gig SD card, there's no recognition of the phone at all in "This PC."  When I plug in the Kyocera, the T430, it does not recognize it at all.

I have 9 gb of photos and videos on the Motorola. I need to get these off asap.

When I take photos/videos on the Motorola, I want them to go on the SD card instead of internal storage. How do I do this?

How can I play MP3 files one after another on a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone?

I have a seminar I need to listen to that is contained within 60 10 minute MP3 files.

Currently I play on of the 10 minute files and then I have to select the next file on my phone to play the next 10 minute session.

What is the process to select all files in the folder to play one after another so I won't have to manually select which files to play next?

I have a Galaxy S5 and after an upgrade have had problems with the phone using the sd card for storage of podcasts, music, an photos. Is there an app that can do this? ... or a setting that will allow it? My phone's storage memory is quite limited and I would love to be able to use the 64gb sd card.

I've juste installed IOS11 on my iphone 5s.   After reboot, it blanked my iphone.  No more picture, no more phone contacts, nothing!
So i wanted to restore a backup, but no matter which password i'm using, it keep saying that the password is incorrect.
I've tried:
  • The password to unlock the phone (the old one, with 4 digits)
  • The password to unlock the phone (the new one, with 6 digits)
  • My Apple ID password

The backup seems to done automatically Before the upgrade to IOS11, but it never asked for a password.  

Anyone can help about this?   Which password do i have to provide!?  Is there any other password than the 3 i've mentionned above?  I'm not the kind of guy who don't remember his password.

Thanks

Thanks

A number of years ago I decided I had to try an iPhone at least once. So, I purchased a 5S. I'm an avid cyclist and carry my phone with me during rides. It fits neatly in the middle jersey pocket, where it stays unless I need it.

During a recent ride my phone rang, so I pulled over to the side of the road to answer it. I didn't reach the phone in time, so I had to use the callback button. At the end of the call I tried hanging up, but was reminded that, more often than not, I'm unable to do so. What usually happens is that, at the end of a call, the screen starts flashing – which prevents me from accessing the hang-up button. Well, that's exactly what happened this time. I placed the phone back in my jersey pocket and continued my ride without giving it another thought.

A couple of hours later I heard talking coming from my iPhone. As I listened, I realized it was dictating instructions on what to do in the event I wanted to leave a message. I surmised that somehow a call had been initiated to a number which had redirected me to voicemail. Keep in mind that I had not touched the phone! I chose to ignore the phone and continue my ride.

When I finished the ride I got back in my car, where I expected the phone to automatically connect via Bluetooth. It wasn't until I tried to initiate a call that I discovered the phone had not connected. I assumed that the battery was depleted. Once I got home, my suspicion was confirmed.

I still have "landline" service from AT&T. …

This phone will be exclusively used in Vietnam, 5% Cambodia, 5% Thailand.

Desired specs:
2G or more likely 3G, dual slot, camera, internet capable, touch screen.
Apple and Samsung won't work as they are too expensive.

As far as data for internet I do not know how many GB they would desire (or really need) and I can not pry to much as far as what they would want. The gift is to be a phone far better than the one they have (previous question on Nokia 150).
-------------------------
CDMA is not used outside of North America, so you will not get any coverage at all. Your CDMA phone will useless in Vietnam or prettywell anywhere outside of the USA and Canada (and even there CDMA is a dying standard). You will need a GSM phone and one that operates on non-North American frequencies; i.e. a quad-band phone.
