Samsung - With Two More Big Screen Phones (Note5 and S6 Edge) by cazza13
I was really looking forward to the Note5 to come out, but after reading what they are offering, I am not impressed at all. No card slot for more memory?? Come on, you sell a phone with a 16mp camera and in today's world, everyone takes photos with their phones. That eats up all the memory, not...

Last month, using an Android phone on ATT, a Gophone,, I tried to call my nephew on his home phone (FWIW, he has no cell phone.) But it appears his father changed the phone number when I wasn't looking, so I had the wrong number. I called and it changed to the screen it uses during dialing,...
