A good brand and model number cell phone for basic service.

by Big Steve / July 15, 2006 5:05 PM PDT

What's a good brand and model number of cell phone that provides good basic service? I'm interested in a flip phone with a speakerphone that is also internet ready that also provides very clear reception when in use.

I don't need a camera phone or a video phone nor do I care to download music. I just would like some recommendations from others in this forum on a cell phone that provides good clear reception without all of the other bells and whistles.

I know there are models out there by Motorola; LG; Samsung; Sony; and others. Which phone or phones are considered to be the best or if not the best then very good that would meet my cell phone needs? Feedback would be appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
