need phone that keeps track of minutes

by lovesponge2000 / September 14, 2004 4:45 PM PDT

okay i know most phones can log the amount of minutes used for each call.. but is there a phone out there that will do more? maybe let me choose how many minutes to use each day? or let me know if i am over on minutes?
Or maybe a wireless plan that will call me or let me know that i am close to using all my minutes?

any help would be good thanks!

I live in the Atlanta, Ga area

mmm actually alot of phone stil keep track of mins use which i thinkis very very very very stupid if u customer buy the phone to keep track of mins use instead of what the phone is made for which is to keep track of how many mins has the phone been use since u first got it. when the phone keeps track of mins it is not the same as the mins u have use in ur plan, ex: u make a 20sec phone call, the phone records 20secs but u get charge 1mins use since thats how the mins work with every cell phone company is not by seconds but by mins so every 60seconds or less is a min. well i have sprintpcs and my setup is i get a text msg when i reach a certain amount of mins i set to program, also sprintpcs msg me letting me know when my mins are about to b up. i love this features and because of this things my bill is always normal not like some ppl with $200 cell phone bill etc...

Really Kris, site is worth clicking. I was really unaware of so many options available in the market related to cell phones. I never thought prepaid connections could be so cheap. Thanks for bringing this site to my knowledge.

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?
