Dealing with SMS spam by Tim+[_3_]
I installed an app for streamline taxis once upon a time. Deleted it not long after but ever since I've been getting the occasional SMS spam from them about once every three months. No big deal but I HATE SMS spam and always respond with STOP. Despite this, they keep coming but from a different number every time. Is there anything I can do other than threaten to charge them a handling fee for...

Replacement for Yahoo email app by Dick
I have become very frustrated with the Yahoo email app but sticking with it as it seems to be the only Android app that can allow me to send emails from one of the disposable addresses I have set up under my main yahoo account. Is there an app out there that copes with Yahoo disposable addresses please (Note that I do *not* mean multiple yahoo addresses. TIA

Month two of the Xmas EE SIM by Roland Perry
Having ordered four (or possibly five, it's not clear whether EE's different forum peeps talk to each other and dedupe complaints) and received just one, I had my 100G of data during January, and topped up again for the second (and final) month of the offer. Got a fairly content-free text about that, and a week later another attempting to give the impression that they were awarding me a...

Which phone? Moto E 2015 or HTC Desire 320 by Dick
So, a new budget phone beckons and I've read lots of reviews but would appreciate any opinions on the Moto E 2015 as compared witht eh HTC Desire 320. Specs and sizes are broadly similar but Moto doesn't have a LED that can be used as a torch and the HTC runs KitKat rather than Loliipop (but maybe this is an advantage?). TIA

Could lighthouses provide the solution to poor mobile phone coverage? by MB[_5_]
There is a report in the Oban Times that there have been talks between the NLB and a couple of mobile phone companies about the use of lighthouses as mobile phone base stations. It was in several other papers earlier in the month. Could lighthouses provide the solution to poor mobile phone coverage?

Phones that allow fingernail touch? by Mr Macaw
Has the world gone completely over to capacitive touchscreens? My old satnav lets me tap with my fingernail (it's a resistive screen), but I've not seen a mobile in quite some time that allows this. You have to use the end of your finger, which is less precise, leaves fingerprints, and to me doesn't feel very comfortable to do repeatedly, especially dragging - it's like running your nails down...

Proprietary Apple connectors are more reliable by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
Aren't they? http://9to5mac.com/2016/01/28/apple-wall-adapter-recall/ https://www.apple.com/support/ac-wallplug-adapter/ Their latest stunt is to ditch the 3.5mm jack because it is 'too thick' for their latest thin phone. I have three old Motorola phones and several Siemens DECT phones with 2.5mm jacks - all over ten years' old.

How to have a phone for two users, or manage someone else's phone? by [email protected]
My wife is a very busy sort of person (a college principal) so I try to do all of the spadework of managing her mobile phone accounts (phone and tablet). If I register the account in my name then I can do all the management but occasionally things go awry when she needs to do something. On the other hand if I use her name then I can't do anything with the account. Customer services at Three...

Passive repeaters? by T i m
Hi all, Are those mobile 'passive repeaters' you see that are supposed to re-radiate mobile phone frequencies to the inside of your car just snake oil or if they do work (and I could see how they might (higher gain aerial than on your phone etc)), do you think one would be of use for getting the signal from the front of a shop (where you can generally get reasonable signal) to the back (where...

Trouble getting PAC - how to progress? by [email protected]
I'm having trouble getting a PAC. The company won't give me a PAC unless I call them from the mobile number in question, but I gave them enough detail to prove it was my number. I have also tried requesting it from my login on their web site which should also prove the request is from me. How can I progrss this? The OFCOM site is pretty useless, it just says how it should work but with no...

It's official BT can buy EE. by R. Mark Clayton[_2_]
The CMA is broadly correct - this one does not materially affect competition in either the landline, broadband or mobile market. EE customers can now look forward to a new standard of customer service and where terms and conditions are changed on a different timescale than before. Of course this group has already heard from former Orange customers, who long for a return to the quality of their...

Which phone shops sell unlocked phones. by Ian Field
The good news is, I've been in Tesco and they told me I can just put my existing SIM in any unlocked phone. They had a phone I liked, but it was more than the cash I had on me and they wouldn't let me buy it with the surplus on my account. Sainsburys have a Samsung for only 10 but it needs an expensive case that might not even protect the buttons, and the sales droid seemed a little...

SLC codes. by Ian Field
The manufacturer of a handset I have for which the service provider is gone, has sent me 2x 8 digit codes for it - but no instructions. Can anyone tell me the unlock procedure? Thanks for any help.

Moto G 3rd Gen by Phil[_2_]
Was thinking of getting one of these. Seems to have good reviews and looks decent for the price. Is there anything else I should be looking at around the same price? ----Android NewsGroup Reader---- http://usenet.sinaapp.com/

Topping up in shops (Asda Mobile) by tim.....
Hi, I have always thought that those "credit cards" that they give you could be used in any shop where they offer top up. But I've never actually needed to do that, so I've never tried it. But now that I have been dumped from Sainsbury's and had to switch to Asda I don't have a convenient store to go to.

Reading out a number incorrectly by Mr Macaw
Does it confuse anybody else when someone in a call centre says, "Is your mobile number 045 6737 6215 instead of 04567 376 215? When the first way is used I have no idea if it's my number. -- Little Sally came home from school with a smile on her face, and told her mother, "Frankie Brown showed me his penis today at the playground!" Before the mother could raise a concern, "Sally went on...

Micro USB confusion. by Ian Field
A USB cable I'd been using to try and "manipulate" a Nokia X3-00 was later tried on a Motorola V220 - which also failed to connect. Suspecting a dodgy USB cable, I tried another and the Motorola connected straight away. Great I thought - I'll try the working cable on the Nokia. Unfortunately, the micro USB plug won't fit in the Nokia.

Cheap fold or slide phone. by Ian Field
Had a look on Ebay - prices around 20 - 25 ish. My network is Tesco Mobile, next time I go there I can check out their prices. Can I do better than Ebay for instance? Really looking for something pretty basic, I hardly ever even use the camera function. The Nokia 2720F was a little bit fiddly, so I had to go and get my reading glasses every time - so that's an indication of how basic I'd...
