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...

What actually happens when you delete your Google Play account entirely? http://i.cubeupload.com/dkF2X1.gif Good things? Bad things? Normally, for privacy reasons, on my unrooted Android 4.3 Samsung Galaxy S3, I wipe out my Google Play account monthly. I usually immediately create a random new...

Simplest phone to replace Nokia 6340? by Roger Blake[_2_]
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...

Is there a way to quiet the phone so it doesn't beep when I turn it on and off? Sometimes I wish to do so in a quiet environment, like church. I'm sure something in my Settings menu will do so but I don't see it. TIA -- You know it's time to clean the refrigerator when something closes the...
