I'm Unclear About Something re: Stimulus Payments

I think I read that social security recipients don't need to do anything if they already receive their SS via direct deposit. Is that correct? Thank you for your answers.

RE: 4 digit pin nos and security

According to Apple, If you setup a passcode there are two things that could happen. One is after 10 failed attempts the device will lock, and you will then have to restore from the latest backup from iTunes. Not clear if an iCloud backup will work. Two, if you also deflected erase data, then the device will be erased. I would suggest that people use more than 4 digts. (Something you can remember) Some devices allow only a 4 digit PIN. My Android tablet is that way.

RE: General Question About Routers

I've used my phone (Verizon)as a hotspot for very brief periods before because I didn't want to exceed data limits. For 2X what I'm paying on my current plan, I could get unlimited data (cost about $70/mo). I have Verizon's unlimited plan. After 15GB they throttle it to 3G speeds. Thanks for the "heads up", Dr. Steve.

RE: General Question About Routers

If you have a smartphone, it's probably cheaper to just use the phone for a hotspot instead of paying for service for two devices. You know, I was thinking the same thing. I've used my phone (Verizon)as a hotspot for very brief periods before because I didn't want to exceed data limits. For 2X what I'm paying on my current plan, I could get unlimited data (cost about $70/mo). What held me back is that I was having good results with the free wifi at the place where I was staying. Now, in my new place, the service isn't as good. I wasn't too concerned that it was public wifi since I always use a VPN, and never had any issues.

RE: Possible stimulus payments from Gov't

They said it would go to your last IRS address Do you mean "street address"? If so, I hope the other respondents are correct in saying it would be by direct deposit. That's how I get my SS payments.

Possible stimulus payments from Gov't

I was curious, if the proposed stimulus payments of approx $1200 is passed, will the gov't put it directly into our bank accounts, or mail them out instead. i ask because of a possible permanent address change, and personell at my current address won't forward mail. It will only be marked "return to sender".

RE: General Question About Routers

Are you talking about a cellular solution for internet or an internet connection via cable, like Century Link or Comcast? It would need to be a celluar solution since I wouldn't be able to deal with a cable connection. Sorry that I'm such a newbee at this.

RE: General Question About Routers

Thanks for the replies. It all sounds pretty good. Further question: can the same router be used with any Internet provider when moving to another location? I presume the answer is yes, just making sure.

General Question About Routers

Hello, all. I'm used to always using public wifi hotspots.My wuestion is: If I wish to obtain a paid service: 1. Does the service supply a device known as a router? 2. If I change location, is the router transportable to the new location? 3. Does the router simply plug in to a 120 volt socket and connect to the computer wirelessly, or are there other wires to contend with? Thanks in advance for your help to this newbee.
