Two questions about the iPhone 5S.

Victor
 

Hi all:

I now own an iPhone 5S which was given to me over the weekend. Yay!

How do I get rid of the pass code that's on it right now?

Also, can I receive and answer calls while the screen is locked even
if the pass code is still there?

Thanks,

Victor

Hi All,
 
I have found an item on the speak to me catalog website that says it will charge up to 3 devices at once, and I was wondering if anybody has one and knows if it would be able to charge my Victor reader stream as well as my iPhone.

The Ultimate Solution for Power Anxiety! myCharge is a rechargeable 6000mAh battery pack that will charge the average smartphone or iPad or tablet four times. What makes myCharge Unique?

Re: Comcast app info please?

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
I understand what you're saying but whether or not the app for whichever service in question is accessible you still must have account credentials in order to log in and use them. So if you're not in an area that comcast serves thus not having an account with them you wouldn't technically be able to use their apps for these purposes unless you were making use of the credentials of another customer.
Perhaps if you call Charter back and specifically ask for a supervisor or someone in customer retention or promotions you might get better results.

Subject: [TechTalk] Comcast app info please?

Hi robin,
What I'm trying to do is to be able to watch programs from certain
cable channels, and if that is available elsewhere or can be done
through the comcast website on my computer, all to the good, it doesn't
have to be through an app, I just want some way to get access to some
cable programs and the like.

what brought this up is that I've reached the end of my promotional
period on charter and they want me to pay $150 plus each month, and
frankly, it's just not worth it.
I tried talking to one of their people and she just wouldn't budge an
inch, however, what I'm prepared to do is to call back and tell them
that they can take away my tv priveleges so I can get by with a cheaper
amount as it were. Does that make any sense to you? I'm hoping that
when they hear this that i will be able to get a different response
from them. Do you think that that might be a possibility?
thanks,
Bill

VPN stands for virtual private network. It not only protects you from hackers by encrypting the connection through a tunnel; it also lets you access georestricted sites. A good example is the BBC iPlayer TV and Radio live and on-demand service outside the UK possible with a UK-based VPN connection.

Yes, that is exactly what this VPN service is called, Hide My Ass. Lol! Anyway just seeing if I can refer any of you to the service, because if you do, I will earn a reward from 1 to 12 week’s free access time depending on what plan you all purchase. If not, that is fine; it is worth a shot. So here is the referral link, originally copied from a personal email I received from Hide My Ass.

Re: Outlook 2010 Interfacing

Vicki W
 

I am not sure about Outlook, but I know that with OE, under the accounts option, there is an advanced tab that gives you the option to check or uncheck leaving a copy of the messages on the server.

If this is unchecked, your server will not keep a copy of your deleted messages.

If I recall, it actually eliminates the messages as soon as they are downloaded to OE or Outlook.

Hopefully someone can give you an absolute answer.

Dear Groups:

I have a desktop PC running Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010/Outlook 2010
and JAWS 14. My email service is through SBC Global/Yahoo Mail.

In Outlook, I have folders for In Box, Sent Items, Junk Mail and Deleted
Items. When I log into Yahoo Mail, I have folders for In Box, Sent Items,
Spam and Trash Bin, all of which correspond to my Outlook folders.

Of course, when I delete emails from my In Box, Sent Items and Junk Mail, it
all goes into my Deleted Items folder, I then go to the Deleted Items
folder, select all and delete. Now everything is gone.

However, if I log into Yahoo Mail, everything I have deleted in Outlook is
still present in Yahoo Mail and I have to go through the process of deleting
the In Box, Sent Items and Spam into the Trash Bin, then delete them all
from the Trash Bin.

I am told that I can configure my Outlook 2010 settings with my Yahoo Mail

everything in Yahoo Mail is simultaneously deleted as well. Can anyone tell
me how to achieve this configuration?

Re: Comcast app info please?

Michael Mote
 

Hi Bill! I use my cable app all the time. It happens to be Charter
Spectrum. Before that I had another cable service. In both cases in order
to use the App, you had to have an account that you create on their
web-site. Somewhere along the way, you are asked for your account number.
Then, when you use the App, you just log on using the email and password
associated with that account, and it works that way. Hopefully this helps.

Re: Comcast app info please?

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
I'm not quite clear on your question as Comcast or xfinity as some of its services are called has various apps for different purposes.
for instance there's one app for managing one's account. Another if you've their phone and email services called connect through which you'd access and manage those. Still another lets you control your dvr or download content you've recorded to your phone or device for watching on the go. All of these are predicated upon your being a customer and having an account with them. thus yes you need to sign in with a user name and password associated with your account to utilize them.
All of the apps are very accessible with VoiceOver on the iOS side of things. I can't speak to Android as I haven't any devices. Of course if accessing through a PC no apps are needed as one would just use their regular website.
I hope that helps.
Robin

Well you could do a VOIP service and usually they give unlimited calls local

Hi all,

Sorry, you won't find such a telephone conferencing option. When you dial
into a telephone conference, it is understood that you are responsible for
any long distance charges.

The way to solve this issue is to log into such a conference with your cell
phone. Most carriers these days offer unlimited long distance calling.
Some plans do count your minutes, so you have to be careful.

Most landline companies offer flat rates now for unlimited long distance
calls within the U.S. and Canada. Some offer this to India and Europe as
well.

Sorry you won't find a totally "free" conferencing options. Somebody got to
pay, as they say.

I have a cell phone and a landline for which I pay flat rates. This makes
it convenient for me to attend such things.
