Help Buying a New Phone

by jm2222 / May 15, 2010 12:19 PM PDT

I live in South Florida I have AT&T and the service is good, but I'm open to changing service. I have a Motorola flip phone that worked quit well but it is giving out. I'm looking for a new phone that I can hear good but I would like to be able to organize information and maybe get my email. I don't play games or use twitter, but I would like a bit more then what I have now. Any suggestions?

Unless you've had bad service there's no need to switch

S. FL has great ATT service IME. ATT has a boatload of spectrum in your state, so that works in your favor.

Best way to evaluate phones is to do it in person, especially since you don't really narrow it down very much. If you feel you need to check out smartphones why not visit a corporate store and come back with some choices (based on what you saw & liked) so we can help narrow it down a little at that point(?)

No need to change provider

AT&T is actually very good, I don't have them anymore because I rarely use my Cellphone. I'm not your normal cellphone user, but I do know most of the providers and AT&T has about the best coverage.

If you talk to them online, they will give you a very decent phone if you agree to a 2 year contract. (another reason I left)

In short, look around but contact all the providers you are considering and see what they will do for your business.

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?
