RE: New Cell Phone..had to ask?

I have one too. Go to Batteries Plus and they will put in a new battery for you. Takes a few hours (Glue has to set) I replace it about 1 a year. when they replaced your battery, did you lose anything from memory?

RE: New Cell Phone..had to ask?

I thought about just replacing the batteries but from I have read, it is very difficult to do on this particular phone.. I replaced the battery on my Samsung Tab 4 10.1 tablet rather easily but it was much larger to work with. Has anyone done a battery on a Galaxy S7 phone? I am sure there are repair facilities that do this sort of thing.

New Cell Phone..had to ask?

My wife and I both have aging Samsung Verizon S-7 Cell Phones that after several years, the batteries are are starting to degrade rapidly.. Time for new phones?? Before I visit any Verizon, Costco or other store to shop, I am looking for recommendations from RVers who have new 5G phones.. I want memory at to be least 64GB, but that is about all I know for now. I have been looking for deals that offer "Buy One and Get One Free" as we did with our S-7's from a Verizon store, but those deals have vanished.. Any suggestions on which phone to look at before a salesman at Best Buy/Verizon/Costco tries to steer me herd me towards the phones he/she can make the most $$ from... Just need ideas and recommendations.. Stay Safe.. Travel Safe..

Windows 10 - External Hard Drive Question

I should know the answer to this.. but just can't think of it.. I have an external WD Hard Drive installed on my Desktop.. It has three partitions (E) (F) and (G). The old drive is starting to get tired and I want to replace it. I would like to set up and keep the same partition designations on the new drive so.. can I rename the (E) (F) (G) partitions on the old drive to another letter, say (T) (U) (V) so I can establish (E) (F) on the new drive then just copy data from the old drive to the new drive? If possible, how do I change the letter designations?? I tried renaming the partition and the name changed ok, but not the letter. Thanks for any and all help.. If not possible, I will just copy contents of old drive to portable USB drive, then remove old USB Desktop drive, install new external USB HD and copy contents back ..

Directv/ATT vs Local CBS station... Question

Several months ago, our local (Seattle NBC station) was blocked from Direct Tv due to contract dispute.. In my case Sunday Night Football.. at that time Directv posted the name of an APP / WEB site where you could watch the game on a PC and even had it briefly on their DIRECTV APPS page.. then it vanished.. Now Directv and KIRO (CBS Seattle) are at odds over the new Feb 1 contract.. KIRO is telling customers they won't get Super Bowl over Directv if not settled by then.. A Financial ploy with Suoer Bowl the hostage to viewers and putting pressure on KIRO.. I am not taking any chances.. does anyone remember the name of the APP/PC Program that DIRECTV listed that lets you watch local channels..for free but $5 donation is made, deleted commercials..

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

The second edition, although thicker, contained nothing of interest to me.. I will not renew..

RE: Office 2016 - Outlook??

Why would you want to switch to Outlook which has been glitchy at best throughout the years. Lost emails, corrupt files, failure to open issues to name a few. Most people leave Outlook to use Thunderbird or use gmail or another web based email option. Very few switch to Outlook from another program. Just the problems you have at the moment should be enough to realize the program is problematic. You can use the other MS Office programs like Word, Excel etc. without having to use Outlook. That's what I've been doing for years. I am seriously thinking about staying with Thunderbird and ignoring Outlook 2016.. I just wanted to get it working.. A Challenge??

RE: Office 2016 - Outlook??

As the brother of another old Whiltsie sailor, let me ask, what is the format of the contacts file you are trying to import? .csv

Office 2016 - Outlook??

I am starting to regret installing MS Office 2016 on my home shop computer.. seems like one problem after another.. I am trying to use OUTLOOK instead of Thunderbird for email.. I can set up accounts and receive email with no problem.. BUT.. when I try to copy my Thunderbird Contacts list (export) and (Import) it into Outlook 2016, nothing ever happens.. I have tried everything that I could find on the INET on how to do this but no luck.. Anyone else experienced anything like this?? I have exported and imported contact lists before with no trouble.. but not this time.. Maybe I should just stick with Thunderbird, however I am the kind of person that there is a feature installed (Outlook 2016), it should work.. Just looking for thoughts as I have already scoured the INET for procedures, none of which worked.. Stay Safe

Is this doable or am I overlooking something??

We use our trailer a lot during the winter and in COLD weather.. Normally we use the propane furnace but it gobbles propane. The trailer is connected to the 30 amp outlet on the park post BUT when we try to use an electric space heater to help, the post breaker often trips when the microwave or other appliance is used.. Any thoughts about connecting a separate power cord from the park 15 amp pedestal outlet/breaker then routing it into the trailer to power the electric space heater??? had to ask

Cell Phone Blues..

I have had a Samsung Galaxy S-7 for several years now with no problems. Well that has ended.. yesterday I started receiving a popup every 10 minutes or so telling me the My S-7 is dangerously close to dying IF I don't download their app to fix it..IT IS SPAM AND I WOULD NEVER DOWNLOAD SUCH ****. But how do I stop this pop-up? Anyone recommend a good app to scan and remove such garbage? Or am I stuck with it until I get a new phone someday?
DD716TED 01/12/21 05:12pm Technology Corner

Just make sure Thunderbird is installed and configured to send and receive your email then follow this: Changing the email favorite program. Thank you...I did everything as described..but Outlook still prevails.. will try again later. thanks again for quick response

I just updated my DW's computer to Microsoft Office Pro 2016. It works fine except that we cannot get Thunderbird to be our Default email client.. I have tried everything I could find on the INET for days now for looking for suggestions to accomplish setting the default mail client including changes to the registry, but Outlook still remains the default email client. Changing the mail default app in settings has no effect even though Thunderbird is selected but no avail... QUESTION: Can I just remove the Outlook program section of the Office 2016 install with no other problems?

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

I feel exactly the same as those who have already addressed the new RV Magazine. I had Trailer Life and looked forward each month to the product reviews, tech articles and the questions / answers section. The New RV magazine appears as though the target audience is the Elite RV'er, not the casual weekend RV'er. I realize this was the First Edition but my subscription expires soon and if they hold the course, I will NOT RENEW..

RE: Microsoft Office 2016 Problem..

Thanks for the replies.. I was able to do a repair of Office 2016 and it is now working.. You were right that I should have removed 2010 before installing the newer Office 2016 program. Nothing is ever easy.. just a note.. The Wife and I thought we would take the trailer and go someplace for New Years eve just to get away and relax.. W R O N G .. apparently every other RVer on the planet earth had the same idea.. No campgounds within 100 miles had available camp sites..

Microsoft Office 2016 Problem..

I just installed MS Office 2016 on my Windows 10 computer. Then I uninstalled the older MS Office 2010. PROBLEM: All of the MS Office Files Icons (both made using 2010 and 2016) on the desktop a just blank white squares instead of the Word, Excel, PP icons as in the past.. My other PC using Office 16 the Desktop Office File Icons are normal as they should be?? Windows just getting more and more frustrating every day trying to keep abreast of changes and problems.. thanks

RE: Direct to stop SD transmission on Dec.31

The R22 receiver is not HD capable IIRC. The R22 doesn't have an HDMI output but it was some kind of weird hybrid that might receive HD but can't output the HD signal. I could be wrong but I believe you would need a receiver model # starting with an H. The R22-100 is HD Capable..if connected to an HD Antenna with a B Band converter.. It does have an HDMI output which is what I use. I have connected it to the house antenna / B Band converter and received HD. Also has 2 antenna inputs..

RE: Direct to stop SD transmission on Dec.31

This threat has been going on for several years now. I would think if is going to happen soon, I would have received some sort of notification from ATT and what to do in my trailer.. I have the Winegard carryout antenna and R-22 SD receiver which is HD capable.. will I need a B-band converter?
