Mike:
 
I am not sure.  They just say that they use towers of the major cell services.
 
I will try to find out.
 
I went with Verizon years ago, cause we had property on a lake in Northern Idaho and Verizon had the best service there, but now, we don’t have that  property anymore and don’t travel much.

Are you in the U.S.?  I just signed up with Consumer Cellular.  I was with Verizon before and my bill was $54 for one phone with 3 gb of data.  Now, with my new service, I am paying $20 a month for the same plan.  They are having a promotion now, so get $5 off every month for the next 20 months, then the price will go to $25 a month.

Marda, what is a SE 2020?  I am also with Consumer Cellular, but I bought their cheapest flip phone for about $35.  I don't think it has any kind of speech access.  I may trade for a smarter phone if I think I can learn to work it.

I believe they used AT&T when I had them. I think my phone service and coverage is better than AT&T, but Consumer Cellular has wonderful Customer Service.

Hi Holly,

I know Consumer Cellular will use different cell provider service towers depending on where you're located. Do you know what cell provider towers they're using for you? I'm curious to see if they're using Verizon's towers because I'm curious to see if the service quality is as good.

Hi all, is anyone using this service for your I Phone? I have Verizon

at the moment, as does my wife. It looks to be cheaper. How does it work with iPhone? I have the iPhone  SE, and the ad says I can get the iPhone 20 for free. Any comments? Jim


Re: [Tec Talk] sending messages on iPhone s e

I got my SE as a gift but I have seen no contract promotions for them for as low as around $150 in the US.  But I know without a deal they cost more.

That is correct unless you set up auto deposit. Once that is done the money
will just be deposited in to your account of choice. You still do have to

Madison,
As best I know, E-Transfers are used in Canada but not the U.S. and I don't
know about other countries. You do have to have online access to your
account, I.e.
checking, savings etc. because you have to tell the money where to go once
you get a E-Transfer email. In the email, there is a link that asks you
which bank do you want the money deposited in.

Hi all,
This is likely a really basic and maybe even stupid question, but I know
absolutely nothing about online banking so please forgive me. I'm planning
on trying to sell some things, and I think that the only methoid of payment
that I can use is e-transfer since I don't have a PayPal account or any of

banking so I don't have access to my account on my laptop, so I'm wondering,
do I need to have access to my account on this laptop in order for an
e-transfer to work, or if I just provide my email address will it still work
even if I don't have access to my account on my laptop? I hope this makes
sense, I'm using latest versions of Jaws and Windows 10. Really hope someone
can help me, please no judgement since I'm such a novice. Thanks Madison

Hi Holly,

When I feel the camera   on the back of the I phone SE, I can feel the edge of the whole circumference of the camera,  so I do not believe it is being obstgructed by the old case.

Are you sure your old case does not partially cover the camera lens?  My old iPhone 7 case was the right size, but the camera lens opening wasn’t quite big enough.

 

I did get the same case that fits the SE on Amazon for $12 U.S.  It has a nice texture, so easy to grip, and a pop out stand on the back.

I have a SE    2020, and the latest update, 15.1.  I have not experienced this issue.

 

When Siri says that you need to use the app, I imagine she means the messages app.  If you open the messages app, you can dictate the text from there.

 

I prefer using the messages app, as Siri is not very reliable when dictating a message.  In the messages app, you can edit your message if there is a problem with dictation.
