LG Voyager

Hi Steve_R,

There are several. I use an LG Voyager. It has a unique clamshell design. On the outside is a full-size touchscreen. On the inside is another full-size screen (same size as the external display) plus a full QWERTY keyboard.

It does text, picture and video messaging very well. It also has mobile email.

One disadvantage is that, because it's a multimedia phone, Verizon will require you to subscribe to a data plan if you buy the phone at a discounted price. If you pay full price for the phone, then you can avoid the data plan requirement.

But the "multimedia" design offers many advantages that make it worth it to me. It's a good music player, can handle video pretty well, can surf the internet, and even has a Mobile TV tuner so you can watch TV if your Verizon network provides Mobile TV coverage in your area.

Best regards, WiredNot

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?
