If you haven't switched to the latest plan with your carrier, you might be overpaying / being gouged.  Earlier this year I investigated what Verizon had to offer and found out I was paying waaaay too much money.  After collaborating with family members we got 5 of us signed up under one plan and are saving hundreds of dollars a month now.  Family plans save $$$ folks.  And the plan differences between each carrier are not that drastic either.  Verizon and AT&T reign supreme.  Yes, more money, but you have superior service over the cheaper carriers.  Whoever is your carrier, do yourself a favor and take the time to see if you're overpaying and switch plans asap.

Verizon prices appear to have have dropped significantly while TMobile has increased. I used to pay way more than that for much less service when I had Verizon years ago.

Verizon and AT&T aren't the best places for Android though. Their Android devices have bad software bloat, rarely get software updates, and the hardware is usually outdated.

Interesting.  I've never used Android with Verizon so good to know of your experience with them.

I usually don't stream videos unless I'm on wifi.  I did this a lot when I didn't have Verizon's Unlimited plan.  Old habits die hard I guess.  I like how this was phrased
But this plan led to more pressure on the network and increased costs. So the company had to do something to turn this great consumer-friendly idea into a viable business venture.
ohshi we messed up and now its costing us too much money!!!! Can we take this back!?  Oh yes, of course we can, we're Verizon and we tell everyone how it is like big cable companies.

There does not appear to be a difference.  I ran a 10km today and started a 10km egg.  Only at 8.7km.  That was without Pogo+
With PoGo+ it seems to be worse or no different for tracking.  I ran a 5km, incubated a 5km egg and it only got to 2.7km distance.

Bear with me because I am by far an exchange expert, I am an IT admin for an HR company who was brought in an don't know exchange well at all.  So if I use the wrong verbiage I apologize.

Last week on tuesday, we came to an outage on exchange.   We ran scans and found our database was corrupt.  We started a new database and ran the migration tool bringing over one user at a time, everything is back up and running properly now after the migration tool.  The old database is unmounted and only the new database is mounted and all users are connecting and running email fine.

Ever since the migration and the new database the security requirement on mobile phones has been messed up.   It seems only on android devices so far, but as you can see from the settings below simple password is checked, alpha numeric is not, however on android it is making you now do a 4 digit code, with one Capital Letter, one lowercase, and the other two are what you pick.

Before the migration you could do a simple 4 digit number passcode.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong or what might have changed?

However ever since the migration, the search feature in OWA isn't working.  It works fine for the users on their mobile devices or outlook but the users who only use OWA have no search feature.   No matter what options on the left are selected, see picture below.

I searched for Brian, who I have emailed 100's of times and nothing shows up.

Any ideas?

Subject of the week | What are your favorite smartphone apps?
Well, the Experts Exchange app, of course! But I may be a bit biased ;-)

If I factor out that bias, then my favorite iOS apps—in no particular order—are:
  • Music
  • Podcasts
  • Maps
  • Messages (I vastly prefer a text to a phone call.)
  • Runkeeper (For tracking my running. I've tried many different running apps, but settled in on this one as my favorite. Has a lot of great features and excellent Apple Watch support.)
  • Flipboard (News aggregator with some really nice UI.)
  • Snapseed (Photo editing)
  • Flickr (Photography community)
  • Mint (Money management)
  • Kindle (For eBooks. I generally prefer using this on my iPad, but I'll occasionally use it on my iPhone too if I don't have the iPad with me.)
  • Flixster (Movie showtimes)
  • Hue (For controlling the Phillips Hue smart lightbulbs in my house)
  • Facebook (The app I love to hate. Great for staying in touch with friends, but often risks wasting too much time.)

The rate at which technology advances is now very alarming. It is so fast that if you blink twice you are already obsolete. They are all related to mobile technology in one way or the other. The new technology in the app development world is explainer video.

There is an app titled Samsung Smart Switch Mobile that supports such transfers.
Sadly, it appears that there is not a copy of the APP for the Samsung GT-P7500.
When I attempt to download the APP to the  Samsung GT-P7500 it fails.
Who knows maybe I am looking for the APP in the wrong area of the Internet....

How do I get around this challenge?
Thanks!

I have the code below which will detect the browser being used and if it is Safari it will redirect to 'notsupported.html' page.
It works fine when using a computer (PC or Mac), but if u login from a phone using Firefox or Chrome it will still redirect.  How can I prevent this from happening?   I only want to redirect if the user is using Safari, regardless of the devise being used.

		if (navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Safari') != -1 && navigator.userAgent.indexOf('Chrome') == -1) { 
		window.location.href = "notsupported.html";

Is it possible to have two MDM providers coexist in Office 365 for email?

Hi all.

PROBLEM:
We're having a rather uncommon issue with ActiveSync!

Some random mobile devices (we use Android and iOS) at random days, stopped refreshing email folders.
The devices connect ok to the Exchange servers and we can even send emails from those devices, but none of the folders get refreshed.
If I test-ActivesyncConnectivity for those users with issues, everything results in Success, so it seems related with that specific devices.
NOTE: If the user have multiple devices, they all stopped sync the email folders at the same time.


LOGS:
Looking at the logs, the only errors we find are related with the FolderSync with status codes 12 and 110.
There are NO error codes 500 nor 403.

ActiveSync logs show two entries with errors:
1 - Command: Sync, Https Status: 200, Status: 12, Status Definition: The folder hierarchy has changed
2 - Command: FolderSync, Http Status: 200, Status: 110, Status Definition: ServerError, ExceptionInfo: Command_workerThread_Exception

Inside this second error, the description for the "workerThread_Exception is:
"Command_WorkerThread_Exception :
--- Exception start ---
Exception type: System.InvalidOperationException
Exception message: MailboxId has already been mapped to a different SyncId
Exception level: 0

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

Hi,

I really need a help and guidance on how to go about setting up a wifi hotspot at our Cafe. We have regular customers which comes every morning to have cup of coffee and little snack. Normally, customers comes while they have their coffee for about 10 to 20 minutes and then go.

I would like to offer a Free Wifi to all my customers who comes to my cafe for coffee for 10 or 20 minutes.

I should be able to print out a wifi voucher which they can use to access the internet on their mobile phones or laptop. But usually it'll be just a mobile phone. The internet will be stricted ONLY to checking emails online and or Facebook - nothing else. It should not allow them to download softwares, torrents, since we dont have unlimited data to our ISP.

Remember, that after 20 minutes, the voucher should die out. And it can only works to one mobile phone.

Anyway's that is the plan and i hope i can get answers on how to proceed and going forward.

Thank you and i look forward to comments.

Kindest,
Bakaka

I believe that technology is a tool to improve our lives. Therefore, the apps I use bring something positive into my life. My favorite app is Headspace <3 It is a guided meditation app. I love it because it brings mindfulness and peace into my life. In case you are not familiar with meditation, I added a nice short video that explains how to manage our emotions through meditation. My second favorite app is Instagram because I can edit all my pictures easily and I LOVE seeing nature pictures from around the world.

I agree with you technology helps a lot and make life easier.   I consider a big gain the banks apps, it's a dream not to go to the bank and do all transactions online. I love the apps that help people to be in touch and closer with no fee: Facetime, Skype, Whats app.  When you live away from your family and friends, these apps make a big difference.  Thanks for the suggestion on Headspace. I will try it.

I also like Whats App. I totally agree with you! When family and friends are far away Whats App is very helpful.
About the financial apps, I love Mint. Thanks to this app I keep track of my debit & credit accounts. So, it is very easy to manage my money and financial goals.

An active Android-focused spyware family called SonicSpy has burst on the scene after being found lurking within 1,000 mobile apps, some found in Google Play.

Lookout Security researchers Michael Flossman found that SonicSpy can manipulate a victim's device via 73 remote instructions, including the ability to silently record audio, take photos with the camera, make outbound calls, send text messages to attacker specified numbers, and retrieve information such as call logs, contacts and information about Wi-Fi access points.

It amazes me that my toddler nephew is already a YouTube wiz. He remembers which videos are his favorites and knows how to close/skip ads. He even knows which videos are "inapoopiate" and avoids them. Although he'd rather watch kids play with toys than play with his own, I admire that he's already become this tech-savvy. What do you think about kids being exposed to technology at a such a young age?

Yup! It's all about balance and of course what they're actually doing on the device itself. I'm loving all these programming toys that have been coming out lately.

I think it is good that kids are learning how to use technology. However, I think there should be a balance where the kid learns to use technology as a tool, learns social skills, and spends most of his/her time being active.

I don't think technology is bad. The problem is that even WE as an adults don't even know how to use it properly.
