Re: best MVNO plans?

Greg Wocher
 

Hello,
I think Mint Mobile has one of the better prepaid plans. It is $30 a month for unlimited everything. They also have a $15 a month plan that gives you, I think, 12 gigs of data a month.

Hi Brian,

I am honestly debating with myself whether to go MVNO/prepaid or postpaid regular plan. I am on metro for my current IPhone 6, but since literally no network officially supports this device, I am thinking of switching to a better  plan when I get a  new IPhone when they come out. I am leaning more towards postpaid though, after some thought, especially since I would be able to benefit from employee discounts, that likely would shave off between 10-15 at least on the monthly bill. And I am not 55  or older.

Wrestling with Windows 10 Files and Folders

Steve Matzura
 

A new and definitely unwanted behavior has reared its ugly head on one of my Windows 10 systems. When I open a particular folder, while it's already set to show entries sorted by last modified date, it has now begun grouping items by such crazy things as "Thi week," "Last week," "A long time ago," etc. I keep changing this behavior back to None, but Windows keeps changing it back to the new and unwanted behavior. It used to be that one could permanently fix this in the old Windows Explorer, but not so with File Explorer. Either that, or I don't know how to do it, which is more likely the case. LOL. So, once I change the grouping back to None, what do I have to do to ensure it stays that way?


TIA

Re: jaws 2021

I've heard comments occasionally from others still using Eudora. I can't tell from this forum just how well it works, but the forum does indeicate that people still use it in Windows 10. How well screen-readers support it currently is something I don't know.
https://social.microsoft.com/Forums/Windows/en-US/d84a9888-01e3-4df6-9023-fe8baa58cc6f/is-eudora-7-compatible-with-windows-10?forum=Offtopic

If an e-mail program still runs well in Windows,, even if it is quite old, and if a screen-reader still supports it, it should work well. I use NVDA and Windows Live mail still works well. As far as how it works with JAWS, I haven't used JAWS for years and I don't know if scripts are still included with current versions. I suspect the program still works well with JAWS however, since I see no reason that the scripts should have been removed. But those using JAWS would have to comment on that.

I'm not just commenting on this to engage in discussion. I think people should have the widest choice of programs available so they can use the one they prefer.

Why are you still using Eudora. Even windows live mail which is 8 years old, and no longer supported,does not really work . it shouldn’t . I am surprised eurdora still works. Well the built in mail for windows 10, outlook 2016, 2019 or 365, and works great with windows. And also the mail app in mac. Works fine with voicover from what I have read.

Thanks.

Ps: beta testing jaws 2021. No major issues so far. I use office 2016, outlook, word, google chrome, Microsoft edge, mozilla firefox and even internet explorer 11. When I need to use from time to time. Revo uninstaller and heard thunderbird works great with it.

In case what I wrote is unclear, the link that Pontes uses gets there because the user copies the link to the clipboard from the browser.  Pontes automatically places the link from the address bar into its edit field.

There may be implications for other situations.  Usually, the link that appears in Pontes comes from the clipboard because the user copied it there from the browser's address bar.  If that is what you did and the link was defective, that means that it may be that the very common practice of people sending people links to articles by copying links from the address bar and pasting them into a message may not work with Edge.  If they don't, that is important to know and is a serious flaw.

Its still working, I used it within the last day or two.  I have never seen the download button not be available, whether it worked or not.  If it didn't work, because an update was needed to get around a change on the Youtube site, the button still was there, downloads just weren't successful.
That implies a reinstallation may be in order.  the program itself may be corrupted.

Hi Stevben,

I used Pontes just last night to download and convert a bunch of current songs.

best MVNO plans?

enes sarıbaş
 

Hi all,

So I am currently using Metro By Tmobile's 30 dollars per month cheapest plan, which only encludes 2 gb of data, and doesn't support features like call waiting, conference calls etc. However, my research indicates that I could probably save more and get more perks and data on other MVNOs. Does anyone have recommendations for this? Mint mobile sounds apealing with its 3gb plan. For clerification, I do all data intensive activities off celular and on wi fi. All I need celular for is video calls, since my DSL is far too slow to support those, as well as voice calls and checking e-mail, and sending and receiving voice and text messages.
