Re: BlindShell Classic

Abbie Taylor
 

Thanks again to all of you who have been addressing my concerns about purchasing this cell phone. Carolyn, I live in Sheridan, Wyoming. We have no Target or Best Buy. We do have ATandT service here, believe it or not. Someone emailed me privately suggesting the quality of the service in my area might be the catch. So, I queried on Facebook, tagging my friends here in Sheridan. One of them responded that she's been happy with the service here. Of course I didn't think to ask if she uses a network like what Laz offers or gets it directly from ATandT. 
 
Surely that wouldn't make a difference. I once had a Jitterbug, which, I think, was similar to Laz's arrangement except it used the Verizon tower. It worked pretty well except it didn't talk.
 
Ron, I'm not too concerned about data. The phone doesn't have a web browser, but it has email, YouTube, and Internet radio. I'll primarily use these features at home with wifi. By the way, the phone's book reader allows you to download recorded books from Libervox.
 
So, I'm feeling pretty good about this. Laz, I'll be in touch when I'm ready to purchase the phone. It'll be a few weeks, since, as I said earlier, I've got other expenses so will need to wait until my proverbial ship from the government comes in. Thanks again to all of you for your help and for recommending Laz. I look forward to doing business with him.

What kind of microphone are you using?  Is it separate or built into the headphone frame?  I’m using Windows 7.  If you have Windows 10, I’ll wait to see if those with that version give you information about how to do this.  The instructions I give may well be similar so you can likely use them pretty much as written, but I’ll wait to see what other information you get.

Possibly I missed something earlier in this thread.  However, I called Consumer Cellular earlier today and asked about the plan with 250 talk minutes and 500 megs of data and was told that this plan was $20 per month.  So either things have changed or the salesman with whom I spoke wanted a bigger commission.  I sure wish I could get to the bottom of this.

Hi Olusegun,

I have a pause button on the keyboard that comes up when I am in Contacts.
You have to go to the symbols layout and it's, I think, second row from the
top. This might help people from having to put a lot of commas after a
number.
Of course, this nifty Android feature may not be included on those other
devices. <smile>

My Android world, I just use the phone dialer app that came preinstalled on
my toys; I can, of course, install a different one and switch to it if I so

For example, the Asterisk (or star) symbol is below the Number7 on the dial
pad; if I place my finger on it for about two seconds, it enters a comma
continuously until I lift my finger. I think each comma entered gives a
five-second pause before the next action is performed. Typically, a

equally good, but I've never tried that.

Not quite.

The new or second generation stream has wifik  so it can do direct to player downloads and  listen to radio stations.

First, there was the Victor Reader Stream, (Original).  When the next one came out it was the 2nd Gen Victor stream

and had a very limited internal memory card (sorry, I don't remember the amount).  After some time, the newer 2nd Gen streams were issued with a bit larger internal memory. Other than that, the 2nd Gen streams were the same.   As far as I know the capacity of the internal memory card is the only difference.

Yes, the Victor Stream second generation is the same as the new generation victor stream.

The victor stream trek is the  same as the second gen with the trek added on.

I was going to order the VR Stream I had that had podcast downloading capability and the ability to download books from Bard. It also has Internet Radio and Audible--several things I know first generation didn't have. So I hear it referred to as second or third generation, but recently I see it called New Generation. I don't want the Trek; it would be the one they came out with before VR Trek. Thanks for clarification.

I thought she was talking about the applications key.  You are right, it’s the right alt key.

What does the Alt key have to do with a context menu!

What happens if you use the shift f10 command instead?  That does roughly
what the context menu key does, though it may not bring up exactly the same
menu in all places.  Also, are you using a directlhy connected keyboard or a
portable one?  Portable ones don’t always send the proper codes for some
operations, at least on some computers.

Re: Old Tech question

Carolyn Arnold
 

The code number changes for every service. Of course, I
could edit. That sounds worth a try. In fact, I can do both,
try phone first, and if it works, good. If not, dial the
conference number, then do the code.

So, when entering a comma, is there the indication on the
lower left to change from keypad to symbols?

Hi all,

Carolyn, I don't know if that will work or not. I'd try it
first, then, you will not be disappointed if it doesn't
work.

If you have a cell phone, even a feature phone, put the
number in your contacts, add about three commas, and then
put in the code. The commas make the phone pause and then
enter the code number.

What program is your church using to do their services? If
we knew that, we might be able to give more specific help.

I use to have a little device before Smart Phones. I think
it was
called Parrot. You stored all your contacts and phone
numbers it, and when you wanted to call someone you just
spoke the name of the contact and held the device up to a
regular
phone and the device made the tones to dial the number. I
wonder if
there would be an app for a tablet that would do the same
thing for
those who do not have a smart phone?

If I'm not mistaken, in the abbreviation "Mb" or "MB", a capital B is bypes and a lower case b is bits.

Hi Ann,

If Joseph meant mega bytes, he said 5 MB, that's not very much data for one month. If you streamed one song, that would be it.

Hi all,

No, you mean MB for Megabytes, not millibars. Millibars are
gradations of air pressure. It's the same abbreviation so it's
comfusing, but you mean megabytes.

Joseph's reference was to cell phone provider features. I would
have expected the information to be something like: Unlimited talk

He referenced this MbAR instead. That doesn't make sense--unless
either there's some way of measuring data that I'm not aware of or
it was a typo.

Mystic Access is now distributing the phone. What's more, for an
extra $19 set-up fee, they'll activate the phone with a network
that uses the A T and T tower. This network only charges $20 a
month for unlimited talking and texting and 1 gig of data. The
down side is that you have to install the battery and sim card,
which is something I've never done with a cell phone, and I'm
not particularly mechanically inclined. Otherwise, it's a good deal.
