Nougat for S5 mini - part 4 by Scott[_3_]
Unfortunately, a further difficulty has arisen. The camera is wholly unreliable and keeps failing to start. I have tried clearing the cache, clearing the data, disabling the camera, re-enabling the camera, restarting the phone and removing and returning the SD card. I have also told the camera to save to the main memory and not the SD card. Camera is initially okay then very soon stops...

Virgin terminating all direct debit PAYG SIM cards, also cheap contract SIMs? by Peter[_2_]
Well, finally, after quite some years, the *******s have killed them off. Firstly they moved them to the Basic 0 tariff. This happened a few months ago. So anybody using one of these lost mobile data. In communications (always difficult due to the company being staffed by muppets) they stonewalled and whitewashed and pretended the owner selected the new tariff.

Nougat for S5 mini - part 2 by Scott[_3_]
The saga continues. Thanks to those who helped (Chronos and Theo) on the previous thread. Once I discovered developer mode, the transfer and installation processes were indeed straightforward. There was initially a problem with wi-fi that a reboot resolved. I think it may have been trying to log on to a neighbour's. However, the problems then started. I was unable to sync my contacts or my...

Three - Phone fast but MiFi slow by garmcqui
I am on three for my mobile, and get very quick data speeds on iPhone - usually 40-50mb/sec. So, my EE mobile broadband contract was up, so have joined Three's, got a nice "Home-Fi" device but more importantly 40Gb for 20! Problem is, speedtests are telling me I'm only getting 8-9mb/sec, which is rubbish compared to my phone. Am currently on online chat to a lovely girl on the other side...

Three from by Roland Perry
Just logged into the "3" android app (not for the first time) and it says they last saw me 17224 days ago, I make that 47 years. Clearly they are using Unix Time, and a zero crept in. or was it 17244. -- Roland Perry

Galaxy S5 mini / Nougat by Scott[_3_]
I got some very helpful advice on this newsgroup about updating my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini to Android Marshmallow. Included in that advice was advice not to rush into the next update, Nougat, at that stage. Since then, Cyanogenmod has disappeared to be replaced by Lineage OS and I think this has interrupted development. I see there is now available an Android 7.1.1 Nougat LineageOS...

Cheap pocket camera versus smartphone by [email protected]

Date of Easter by Optimist
I use my mobile phone's calendar to plan meetings etc. I am rather disappointed that it doesn't yet show the date of Easter this year, only a few weeks away. It is set to display UK holidays, and last year's Easter is there. Are all phones the same or is it just the Sony Xperia?

SIM card still getting calls after company closed. by DerekF
I had a Kontakt sim card in a spare phone. The service closed down some time ago and I happened to turn it on today and found three recent texts on it. I dialed the number and it rang. I assumed that when the service closed the number died right away with it as the Sainsbury one did. Derek

SIM Travel Wallet by Theo
Anthony R. Gold wrote: Has anyone found a good solution for carrying multiple SIMs (nano usually) and microSD cards? A perfect solution would hold cards securely regardless of orientation or shaking and allow for them or their empty spaces to be named/labeled. I've used the little cases that come with full-size SD cards - they take a good selection of SIMs and...

Three data only SIM by Malcolm Loades[_4_]
I purchased a TP-LINK Archer MR200 router for a location which doesn't have a landline together with a 20GB data only SIM from Three. Primarily data usage is minimal with nothing more than the Hive heating control using it. Just sometimes it's used for more data greedy purposes. What I'm stumped on is how do I know how much data remains on the SIM at any time? The router can report on data...

2G coverage and longevity by Andrew Gabriel
What's 2G coverage like now, and also is there any EOL plan for it? Reason for asking is a friend is looking to buy a remote peronsal alarm/monitoring device which uses a 2G SIM. It's not obvious to me the device uses anything other than SMS and voice calls though. -- Andrew Gabriel

Does anyone here use "Three In Touch"? by Chris Green
We have poor to no mobile signal at home so we are trying "Three In Touch" on our Moto E and Moto G phones. I *wish* one wasn't expected to guess how it works. We're still floundering around wondering whether it works as one would hope or maybe some other way that we can't guess. Does anyone else here use "Three In Touch", if so some questions:- 1 - Does the phone switch to using WiFi...

Three Dongle and Windows 10 Woes by SB
Just got a new Dell Inspiron laptop. That is by definition to be used for travelling. However I have already run foul of the dreaded Windows 10 (Home) automatic updates. Last week whilst doing some emails I suddenly got a web page stating that I had run out of data allowance. Bl**dy Windows had attempted to download a massive update file and soaked up my remaining Three dongle data allowance for...

Sony shenanigans? by Tim+[_3_]
My daughter's Experia Z5 started displaying a charging fault. It became erratic at charging at first and then terminally would only charge with the plug held in firmly. To me, it sounds like a charging socket failure. Sent it off for repair under warranty only to get a message back saying that it needed a new battery and screen. As these were "wear and tear" items, they are not covered by the...

Android - annoying behaviour of Gmail app by Optimist
After I read an email on my Gmail app, I archive it. This works OK until the last one, when it stays in the Inbox (or Priority Inbox) although marked read. In order to archive it, I have to switch to the other Inbox. Why is this? And why are there two Inboxes anyway? One is enough!

DORO Messages: Suddenly Font Is Too Large by SB
I have a Doro 8030. All of the font sizes were and still are set to 'Normal..' This has been the case since the initial purchase last year. However In the last few days there has been an automated update from Doro. This has installed a Doro keyboard - which I didn't want. But the other change is that even though all of the font sizes are still set to 'Normal,' the font size on any received SMS...

Samsung A300FU lost soft buttons? by T i m
Hi all, I have been given a Samsung A300FU by a mate for our daughter but it looks like the on screen soft buttons (or whatever they are called) don't seem to work, even after a factory reset. Googling about seems to suggest that the / a likely cause is damage done to a connector during screen replacement but the PO can't remember if having one?
