Can you use a pay as you go phone on regular subscription service ... provided that you give it the SIM from the regular service phone?

if the phone is a go phone, yes you can take out your att(cingular) sim card and put it the the go phone.

Same goes with the other carriers. The phone must be a pay as you go phone, that works on their network, to allow the sim card to work.

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?
