Someone gave me a LG mobile they didn't want anymore - but its locked to O2. How do their tariffs compare with Tesco Mobile? Thanks for any help.

O2 Pay As You Go phone problem by MB[_5_]
I have an old O2 Pay As You Go phone that I have had for years but that does not get used very much. It used to have the usual regular top-ups but some years ago they changed the tariff so that regular top-ups were not required perhaps I had quite a large credit balance. Some time in the last week or so, something has changed. I noticed that some text messages had been sent.

Sophisticated call blocking app for Android? by Phil Reynolds[_2_]
Due to my mobile phone service provider being "unable" to offer me a technical solution to this problem, I am looking for an app, suitable for a phone running Lollipop, that can process rules more elaborate than simple matching to decide whether to let a call ring. The kind of rule I particularly seek support for is like this: "if the caller ID is only 10 digits long, do not allow the call...

Vodafone Simply with Stop the Clock by Murmansk[_2_]
I've resurrected an old Vodafone Pay As You Go phone that I've not used for ages except once very six months to keep it alive. I've logged in to the online account and it's on Simply with Stop the Clock. I seem to remember this was quite a good deal - which explains why you can't get it any more! - but I can't remember the details. I've scoured the Vodafone website but I can't find much to...

Three MiFi settings by Dex
I change the DNS because of Three blocking/redirecting sites and now cannot log in to the dashboard setting on the Huawei E5330. The link I used before, http://www.3.home/html/home.html, says 'server not found', going to per the E5330 manual I get 'connection has timed out'. Anyone know how I can access the settings on the MiFi without changing the DNS back to Three?

Three MiFi by Dex
What devices can you connect to the Three Huawei E5330 Mobile Wi-Fi? Laptops tablets and PCs or, as they're not keen on people tethering, just other mobile phones?

Storage of photos on phone memory cards by Woody[_4_]
Google in their wisdom - as I'm sure many like me have found out the hard way - prevented Android from storing data on the memory card from (I think) 4.4.2 KitKat as it was seen as a possible security breach. It means that not only documents but photographs cannot be stored on removable media. This is infuriating if you don't want to use cloud storage as it means it is necessary to download...

Samsung Galaxy III Mini will not stay powered off! by Maurice
If I hold the Power button down, then hit "Power Off" and 'OK' in the resultant menu, it does appear to power off. But a few seconds later it comes back on again! :-( Anyone know how to persuade it to STAY powered off, please? Many thanks... -- /\/\aurice (Retired in Surrey, UK) Registered Linux User #487649

No free SIM cards from Three or Tesco? by Maurice
18 days ago I ordered free SIMs from Three and Tesco Mobile, but nothing has turned up. I'm wondering if perhaps they have been put on hold pending Three's takeover of O2. Anyone here had better luck recently? -- /\/\aurice (Retired in Surrey)

Text messages to landline by Allan

Windows 10 question by Scott[_3_]
I see that a 'prerelease' version of Windows 10 is available for some (but not all) Lumia phones. Does anyone know if the Lumia 820 is included as there seems to be some dubiety? Could a successful upgrade cause problems with synchronisation of the calendar with a Windows 7 PC? Is this a fundamentally bad idea at this stage?

External battery by Scott[_3_]
This may be the maddest question of the week but if you connect an external battery to a phone and both are partially charged how does the electricity know in which direction to flow? Also, output 1 is 2.1 amps and output 2 is 1.5 amps so how do you decide which one to use? Are these devices safe to use or is there a risk of damaging the phone through incorrect voltage?

Virtual (re-routable) phone numbers by Catherine
I'm in the UK and want someone in the US to phone me. However I don't want to give out my phone number. Are there any providers of virtual numbers which would pass on a call from a US caller? Ideally this would ring my mobile but if not then it could ring my landline. I have some very old Flextel numbers from about 10 years ago. Would they

Hi, Im a complete non techie and have only a little understanding of phones so be gentle with me! I'm a keen cycler and I would like to track my rides/plan my rides.

Sharing LAN printer on Mageia-4 by Maurice
A couple of years ago - before the SO had her own printer - she used to print out on the printer on my PC, over the LAN. Today - during a hopefully short-term problem - I tried to get her PC to find the printer on my PC, on the LAN - but in vain. Both running Mageia-4, my CUPS Firewall option is ticked & CUPS Admin has the 'share printer' boxes ticked, but her system still does not find...

Battery question by Scott[_3_]
I have noticed that my phone battery (Nokia 820) is not lasting as well as it used to. I am wondering if this is due to deterioration of the battery or changes to the operating system. I have also noticed that the phone gets quite hot during recharging, though it may be this is simply something I had not noticed before. Does increased temperature indicate that a battery is reaching the end of...
