Straight Talk
by Kattie55 / January 9, 2011 3:00 PM PST

I also had Verizon but paid too much with a 2 year contract. I switch a couple of weeks ago and can't believe the savings. At Walmart they have different cells to choose from and very economical. I purchased the $30 a month with 1000 min. talk/text, and 30mb of data. Straight Talk transferred my old cell number from Verizon to Straight Talk and on the same day, I just had to wait 20 min. for the process to be completed, with a big difference: I am paying alot less than with a contract company. Switch today and just give it a try.

just for reception
by Jeromedic / January 24, 2011 9:23 PM PST

me being tied to being on the cdma network has to a small extent made my life difficult, but invariably i found that even tough i had bad reception sometimes (in the wilds), it was a whole lot better than anybody around me. too many people blame the networks for their bad reception, but invariably it's also in the make-up of the phone. You get good phones, and bad ones. My favorite ST phone just for reception was (yes I got it replaced by something more expensive, and less able) the lg 290. if it's a good phone, to phone with you want, you won't be sorry. And it's helluva cheap.

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?
