Right on the money! You'll have to get a new SIM card from a new provider
if you switch. Why so? Well, each network broadcasts on an allotted radio
frequency. For now, an AT&T SIM card can't send broadcast signals through a
TMobile radio frequency hence the reason why switching would require one to
get a new SIM card. Sounds weird, right? It so happens that a cell phone
is another radio in our pockets and purses! May be some sweet day, there
will be some more streamlining and the need for a new SIM card each time
will no long arise. Until then, let the fun party continue as we all learn
to make our toys serve us better than we think possible!!

No, Sis Carolyn; the Blackberry Priv is the one whose keyboard pulls out! I
haven't held the Blackberry KeyOne in my hands, but I understand it is like
a candy bar phone! Both cost over $200; and, since I'm not into Blackberry,
neither phone will be on the grab block for me.

Re: AT&T mobile?

Hi Olusegun,
Thank you thank you for this! I was searching and searching the internet for this H2O wireless plan, but all I came up with was ATT's plans.
I am definitely going to check this out possibly at Best Buy, This sounds like a great deal right up my alley! LOL! !
Do you use this service? Do you know anyone else who might be using this phone plan?

Sis Janet asked:

"What is the H20 wireless?"

Hmm, that ought to be H2O, the letter "O" as in oscar! H2O Wireless Now is an MVNO that resells AT&T services for a lot less than AT&T would charge.
Example, it has a $40 plan that gives 8GB of data; if you do AutoPay, that price drops to $36!! If sales tax isn't a friendly fiend, H2O WirelessNow will be a good bet because it doesn't charge one. Please read more about its service offerings here:

https://www.h2owirelessnow.com/mainControl.php?page=index

If you happen to make calls across many ponds, H2O WirelessNow will give you
$20 free on their $40 plan for such calls at no extra charge. All SMS are free, MMS ones aren't left out either. I believe you can grab their SIM card from 7 11, possibly Walmart, but most certainly at their website and, oh, don't forget to check out Bestbuy!

Ok sis, if you do get their plan, call me in Paris, I'll be standing next to the Eifel Tower!! Hmm, I'm a slow walking snail, I won't get there until about the end of April, but I am heading in that direction soonest! have lots of fun and I trust this has been a bit helpful.

In a manner of speaking. You can tell the quarantine how often to move quarantined items to a “Deleted Items” area, and when to cleare this area. You can also tell it what to do with deleted items and how to manage websites that are marked as being malicious. I have used Vipre for many years and have found it to be very reliable and one of the best anti-virus programs available. I  set it up to  pretty much r un on it’s own and it takes very little maintenance after   a scan schedule is setup.

And I don’t own a Victor Reader Trek or Stream because I don’t need

Subject: [TechTalk] simple dumb phone

I am seventy and spent sixty years gradually losing my vision to RP. I
have been totally blind for ten years. My wife is virtually an invalid. We
have no need for a smart phone as we are seldom out. When we go to medical
appointments we use an agency to give my wife a shower and take her and or
me to the doctors office. We bought the jitterbug quite a few years ago.
At that time she went by cab and used the phone to call one when we were
ready to go home. It has no features other than calling out and receiving
calls. There was one option at the time which we chose not to get, a
section for receiving messages. We had no need for it. This phone just
fine. I grew tired of hearing from others who had more complex needs. With
the exception of Nancy, who only wanted a phone to make and receive calls, I
was deluged by people who couldn’t possibly use it and went on to describe
their smart phones. I offered this phone for others on the list who might
have needs or preferences like my own. My post started a deluge of
contrary preferences. After a time I lost interest in the varieties of
smart phones. These posts were not critical, but after a time made me feel
like an outlier.

You can buy strong, sturdy folding canes. I have a carbon fiber folding cane that has lasted me for a number of years and is still in good condition. I fold my cane when it is adviseable, such as in a crowded area or when putting it somewhere such as under a table in a restaurant where the table isn't long enough to accommodate the straight cane. But since I only fold it when desirable, the elastic doesn't have much wear put on it. I don't know the brand but I can check if anyone's interested.

This may sound strange coming from me, as I love old things, but I have never understood the use of rigid canes today. I've used both folding and telescopic cames and they all shrink so that I can easily place them conveniently next to me or behind me while I'm sitting, or even attach them to my Go Belt when I have no need of them. . This is impossible to do with a rigid cane. Could it perhaps be that they are more durable? Likewise, I could never see myself using anything but a roller tip. The tapping method has always seemed dangerous to me, as you could miss things on the ground when your cane is briefly in the air.

I don't know either. Fiberglass or carbon fiber canes, if properly
made, are lighter and stronger. If pressure is put on them they bend
without their shape being permanently distorted, they immediately
return to there original shape. Of course, you could put so much
pressure on the cane that it would break but that would be a lot of
pressure, far more than should occur in normal use.

I looked at the web site for the place where I purchased it a few years ago. This is the cane. If the design hasn't changed, it's very good. Do an Internet search for where to order it. This place has a store for blind people who live in the area but I don't know if they deliver. this cane should be available from various places.

Don't get the aluminum cane by the same company. The joints fail after many months with no warning and, because of the way the cane is made, if a joint fails, the cane is useless. You can't force pieces into each other.

You can buy strong, sturdy folding canes. I have a carbon fiber folding cane that has lasted me for a number of years and is still in good condition. I fold my cane when it is adviseable, such as in a crowded area or when putting it somewhere such as under a table in a restaurant where the table isn't long enough to accommodate the straight cane. But since I only fold it when desirable, the elastic doesn't have much wear put on it. I don't know the brand but I can check if anyone's interested.

This may sound strange coming from me, as I love old things, but I have never understood the use of rigid canes today. I've used both folding and telescopic cames and they all shrink so that I can easily place them conveniently next to me or behind me while I'm sitting, or even attach them to my Go Belt when I have no need of them. . This is impossible to do with a rigid cane. Could it perhaps be that they are more durable? Likewise, I could never see myself using anything but a roller tip. The tapping method has always seemed dangerous to me, as you could miss things on the ground when your cane is briefly in the air.

If you don't keep a record of your passwords, you will have this problem repeatedly.  I assume you can go to the login section of the web site and there will be a forgot password link.  This is standard on login pages.

Can somebody tell me how to either recover or change the password I use to get into my gmail account?

I have my gmail account plugged into OE for windows 7, and when I open OE it asks me for my password and apparently the password I'm entering isn't the right one.

Btw gmail is working on my iPhone, so I obviously entered the correct password when I set it up but that would've been a while back, when I had my cable service including e-mail disabled for a time as I mentioned in another message.

I even tried reinstalling OE using the administrative rights option even though I had a few messages that I would like to keep, but that didn't even solve the problem I'm having.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, Gene

I would be happy if you could share this to the group. I am interested to know about this because I need to replace my cane here soon. Thanks.

You can buy strong, sturdy folding canes.  I have a carbon fiber folding cane that has lasted me for a number of years and is still in good condition.  I fold my cane when it is adviseable, such as in a crowded area or when putting it somewhere such as under a table in a restaurant where the table isn't long enough to accommodate the straight cane.  But since I only fold it when desirable, the elastic doesn't have much wear put on it.  I don't know the brand but I can check if anyone's interested.

I have the exact same cane philosophy, but for many, an ordinary straight, non-folding  cane is more secure, especially those traveling a lot crossing busy city streets. I haven't had to do that for a long time, but wonder if I could hear well enough to do that safely now.

This may sound strange coming from me, as I love old things, but I have never understood the use of rigid canes today.  I've used both folding and telescopic cames and they all shrink so that I can easily place them conveniently next to me or behind me while I'm sitting, or even attach them to my Go Belt when I have no need of them.  .  This is impossible to do with a rigid cane.  Could it perhaps be that they are more durable?  Likewise, I could never see myself using anything but a roller tip.  The tapping method has always seemed dangerous to me, as you could miss things on the ground when your cane is briefly in the air.

Re: OE for windows 7

Gene
 

If you don't know, you need to know the difference in selection commands between places where you work with documents and when you are In a list.  In documents control shift end sselects from where you are to the end of the document.  In lists, home moves you to the top of the list.  End moves you to the end.  shift home moves you to the top of the list and selects whatever you have moved through.  If you are one thrird down the list, you will select that one third.  End moves you from wherever you are in the list to the end.  To select from wherever you are to the end, the command is shift end.
 
If you want to select the entire list, use either control a, or use home to move to the top of the list, then shift end to move to the end and select the entire list.

Recovering password for gmail

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

Can somebody tell me how to either recover or change the password I use to get into my gmail account?

I have my gmail account plugged into OE for windows 7, and when I open OE it asks me for my password and apparently the password I'm entering isn't the right one.

Btw gmail is working on my iPhone, so I obviously entered the correct password when I set it up but that would've been a while back, when I had my cable service including e-mail disabled for a time as I mentioned in another message.
