A problem connecting BrailleNote Touch Plus

lynn white
 

I originally had the Humanware BI 32 connected to my iPhone. In retrospect, I should have told the iPhone to forget the device. But, I didn't and now I have an issue

When I try to connect my Touch Plus via bluetooth to my phone, I get a message from BT Plus that the connection can be established either because of a wrong pin or password.

I've tried telling the phone to forget the device in Bluetooth. But alas, it won't do it.

Any ideas are appreciated.


Re: Notice from Microsoft Edge

Veronica Kirk
 

No, I did not enable notifications from Send Space.  Yes, I am a free user of Send Space, and I probably used the download button.  I did do the download from Edge on windows 10 and saw the save as, but did not know what that would do.  Thanks for telling me about the chrome based browsers as I have seen that on other apps.

There are two questions and they are both important. One is why you are getting such notifications in the first place.  Did you enable notifications from Send Space?  I never enable notifications when asked by a site unless I know just what I will get.  the other thing to consider is how to download safely from Send Space.

 

If you are a free user, don’t activate the download button.  As a free user, you will see advertising and Send Space has hacked advertising at times that tries to download malware onto machines.  the advertisements are not directly from the Send Space site.  it is third party advertising that is hacked. 

 

Instead of activating the button, when you are on it, open the context menu and use what your browser provides for downloading a file that way.  Internet Explorer calls it “Save Target As,” I believe both Firefox and Chrome-based browsers call it “Save Link as,” as nonsensical as that description is.  You are saving a file, not a link.

 

This works because the button isn’t a button.  it is coded on the Send Space site to look like a button but its really a link.

 

I’m not assuming or saying that you got malware.  It may be a notification.  You may want to find out how to turn off notifications in your browser if you don’t use them and that may solve the problem.

Vewronica, unfortunately, I would be concerned about a hack
there. My husband and my cousin both had something like
that. My husband had to spend money to get his computer
repaired, and my cousin had to replace hers. The reason for
that is that both tried to act on the computer notification.
My husband tried to block what they said would cost him $79,
and fix it himself. My cousin paid, and then they really
messed up her computer. I just delete any notification like
that without opening.

Re: Pixel 3

Sharon S
 

Hi, I have a Pixel 4A and have so for less than a month so don't know if I will be any help. So far, I have had no real issues with it.

I was using a Smart Vision II before I got the Pixel 4A and the only reason I stopped using that was because it completely died. I borrowed a Motorola phone while I worked out what phone I wanted to buy but that drove me batty. The Motorola was dropping my signal for no reason and wouldn't re-connect. It would do this while I was in the middle of a call and I hadn't moved at all.

Well let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

Re: Pixel 3

Gene
 

I’m curious why you want one of these models of phones.  I read a little about the Pixel 3 and the main reason it is recommended in the Wireless review I read is because it takes such good pictures and does so for far less money than other or perhaps almost all other comparable phones for that use.  Do you have a special interest in pictures or is there another reason you are interested in these phones?
