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.

I never leave my phone in places where it could be compromised anyways...

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

1) What is the range of a cell tower

2) If you were on your cell phone in L.A. and called a cell phone in New York would the call go wireless or wired most of the way?

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.

"File too big" email error is occurring for users we have just switched over to new Iphones, from Droids.  when sending emails from their old Motorola Droids, they did not have this issue - so it's something with the new Iphones, it seems.  They are using Exchange email accounts from IPhone 6S phones.  any help is appreciated.

what is a reason cell phone goes to voicemail when phone is on and owner thinks owner is in a good reception area
Owner is not in a basement and phone has battery power.

Could owner be on phone or internet.
Could owner's phone go to voicemail more often because pre paid plan versus contract plan.
Does this have to do with type of phone.

I am looking for a cell phone and a cell phone plan in the united states where phone is more likely to ring.
