Is there a feature available within a Samsung Galaxy S8 to allow rings and notifications only from certain phone numbers? This feature is available for iPhones and now I'm trying to figure out how to activate this feature on a Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone

This is a very important feature for me to have while I'm sleeping and only want to be disturbed by certain people.

What are the best apps for having additional phone numbers on a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone besides Google Voice?

I am looking to link another phone number to my Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone. I already have Google voice installed on this phone and need to add yet another phone number to this phone.

What are the best Android apps for doing this?

I'm going to be starting a project where I need to be able to answer my phone 24 hours a day.

I also need to be able to completely silence all other alerts from my phone so the only times I will be woken up will be if someone calls or texts my Google voice number.

Is there a way to completely turn off new call, email, & text alerts on Samsung Galaxy S8 accept for Google Voice alerts?

A client of mine would like to know which email address is associated with his Google Voice number.

We have the client's Google voice number and now need to determine which Gmail email address it is associated with.

How can this be done?

I just signed out of a Google Voice account on my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone.

I have logged in with another Google Voice account which is the one I want to have associated with my cell phone.

The problem is that when I make phone calls using my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone the caller ID for the most recent Google Voice account (510-xxx-xxxx) displays instead of the caller ID for the other Google voice account I have switched back to (415-xxx-xxxx).

I also remember that when I have set up Google Voice numbers in the past that these Google Voice numbers have given me the option to fully integrate Google Voice with my Sprint PCS phone (which is what I want to do now). However I am not given this option at this time.

What do I need to do to fix this issue so that the phone number associated with my 415 area code Google voice number will display whenever I make phone calls?

Hi experts,

One of the options on WhatsApp is deleting your account. Given the account is tied to your cell phone, does that mean if you open another account, you will not be able to use that phone number?

I recently turned in an iPhone 5 at the end of a project.

This iPhone 5 is now out of state.

Is there a way for me to logon to my iTunes account on the internet and remove my iTunes account from this iPhone 5 without me having to have the iPhone 5 in front of me?

My OS is win 10 Pro 64 bit.  I bought a new Micro USB Charger/Sync cable because my mobile LG phone would no show up on iTunes despite having the latest copy.  Then while researcing one of the solutions was that possibly the drivers are out of date, and this should be the first port of call.
      Is there any free utility for me to scan my pc to see if all my windows 10 drivers are uptodate or not and then go to the particular site and update the driver.  Thank u

Hello

I'm trying to take screenshots on the Samsung S8

Apparently this is done by pressing the right hand button along with one of the volume keys at the same time. All this seems to do is make the ringer volume go up or down.

I've tried this many times and it still doesn't work. Is there a setting I actually need to enable?

Many thanks in advance

There is a blue light Setting that basically reduces the brightness and supposedly the amount of blue light sent

But I'm not understanding this. The feature documentation says this is supposed to be enabled to help people sleep

But if I'm sleeping I'm not using my phone?

Or is this in case I wake up and check something ?

Or supposed to turn this feature on in the evening as I am starting to get tired so when I do check my phone it keeps me up less?

Hello

I understand with the Samsung S8 that there is the ability to view more than one app on the screen at the same time

Some questions

1. I know Mac can do this, can IOS iPhone and iPad

2. When I try this on a Samsung S8, i always seem to get the Settings as the first app and then any other app as the second. How can I get two real apps to run in multi screen

3. How can I control which notifications use this feature

Last week my Note 2's phone popped up the above message & while this message
is showing up, it won't allow any activity (reading, typing) etc in Whatsapp: it took
more than 15mins & I decided to power cycle it.

Presume its whatsapp messages/content being backup : does it backup to
the microSD card in the phone or to Cloud & how can I restore (ideally selective
restore of selected messages) ?

I need to do a lot of parallel parking in really tight parking spaces in places like San Francisco.

Please provide me with a list of small cameras that I can have mounted to the back of my car (by the license plate) that will then broadcast (using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi) to an Android or iPhone so that I will be able to accurately determine and safely be able to backup my car.
