are there any good online cell phones deals???

by BONSPEED / July 3, 2007 5:03 AM PDT

It didn't take much research to learn about the infamous reputations of online cell phone retailers like "Wirefly" or "Inphones". A simple web search can generate dozens of online sites that offer "free phones" or "cash back" deals. Is there any deals or retailer that are legit or does the old saying of "too good to be true" apply???

.........,but two of their featured online retailers is "Wirefly" and "A1Wireless". How would this be any different then buying directly from these notorious sellers and becoming another rebate victim???

I ordered the motorola v365 for At&t wireless which is being shipped directly from amazon with the rebates coming directly from amazon. I did see that some rebates do come from wirefly and a1 wireless but mine said it was from amazon. Take a look for yourself on the site. Good luck!!!!

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?
