Need a cellphone booster by [email protected]
I live in a rural area where the reception is poor. I live down in a valley too, which makes it worse. If I walk up the hill, or go on the roof of my house, I can get enough signal to make calls. In the summer, this is not a problem, but in winter I dont feel like walking up the hill and making...

Do tablets have built-in cell phones? by KenK
Oddly, I tried Google for a few minutes and the tablet descriptions I ran across didn't mention a phone. Seems like it wouild be simple to add one and save having to carry both a phone and a tablet. Or maybe they figure a smart phone is already much like a tablet? TIA -- I love a good meal!...

Compare Google Pixel & Pixel XL to the iPhone 7 by specifications only by Algeria Horan
In a recent thread on m.p.m.i, JF Mezei brought up the Google Pixel XL camera comparison to the iPhone camera. I hadn't heard of the Pixel XL before, so I decided to run a quick specification-by-specification comparison of the closest iWhatever to the Google Nexus HTC Pixel XL phone. Here is the...

Do you turn off "location access" in all the apps that don't need it? by Horace Algiers
Do you turn off "location access" in all the apps that don't need it? Why do so very many apps require location access anyway? For example, *why* does ES File Explorer need location access? http://i.cubeupload.com/HH2sfG.png I'm shocked at how many apps "require" location access. For example,...

Which of the 3 "Google & location" services do you allow on your Android device? by Horace Algier
Upon factory reset, three questions are invariably asked of Android owners: http://i.cubeupload.com/Yqiw0A.png The best short summary of the questions I can come up with is: 1. Let all apps contact Google to figure out where you are 2. Let Google apps know where you are. 3. Send Google all your...

Are others on T-Mobile in the USA getting their data constantly updated, for free? by Horace Algier
Are others on T-Mobile in the USA getting their data limits constantly updated for free? Or just people like me, who don't need it? I have a $100 4-phone plan with T-Mobile which gives me unlimited stuff and what I "think" is free data, currently at 3.5 GB/month. I started, a few years ago with...

Cheapest/Longest-Lasting Prepaid ? by (PeteCresswell)
Got an old smartphone that I want to fool around with using MacroDroid to make it into a vehicle locator. I send an SMS text message to the phone, MacroDroid intercepts the message and sends a text back with the Lat/Long coordinates of the phone's location. That being the case, minutes used per...

I've been notified by my carrier (AT&T) that older 2G GSM cell phones will stop working by the end of the year due to "upgrades" on their wireless system. I still use an old (ancient?) Nokia 6340 which suits my needs perfectly. I don't need or want internet access, texting, or a camera - just a...
