Hello, I am the little not so old lady who uses her cell phone infrequently. I have T Mobile service and one of their basic Samsung X495 phones which we all know stinks.
I don't use my phone as my lifeline as my kids do. It does however drive me nuts to have calls dropped constantly or not be able to get a signal in a building or the airport if I am travelling.
I don't need a lot of features and don't want to spend a lot of money on a new phone. Is there a name for the ability to have good signal strength on phone details? The decently priced upgrade phones seem like the same low quality I already have. My contract has expired as well and I really didn't want to "re-up" for two more years just for a crappy phone.
I have always been curious about phones that are available for sale that do not come from the carrier. Obviously, T Mobile isn't going to give me advice. Can I buy a phone from another retailer if it's a phone T Mobile has in its line? Who activates it? Is there anything else I need to know about that?
I would appreciate any input so that I can make a decision.
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?
