Is there a way to connect a keyboard to a dumbphone?

I have a BLU Samba Q110 with no bluetooth connectivity. The keys are very small to write SMS. Is there any way to connect a keyboard? It has the standard mini-USB connection for a wall charger or data cable. I've never heard of a keyboard with a mini-USB connection, but who knows? Of course, even if I could find a keyboard that would connect, would it work with the phone?

SwissArmy Cell Phone Case (iPhone5)

So I am trying to find a "SwissArmy" type case for my iPhone5 and it seems that my searching is finding me a bit puzzled. I want an all in one case as I go fishing a lot at the lake across the street from my house and I hate taking a bunch of crap with me down there. I use my phone for music and why can't I have a case that helps me do a little bit of everything like cutting an old line, fixing something small on my rod or reel, may be even pulling out my lure from the fish’s mouth. Plus I want to be able to just walk out my front door with my phone in my pocket, ear phones in my ear, and just my rod in hand (especially in case I want to smoke a cigarette on my way down I can have a free hand).

If anybody knows if there is a case l...

Sad Thank You for letting me Join. I am Disabled with Several Ruptured Disc in my spine. I have a ALCATEL 665. For Some reason I an unable to check on the Blue Volume Screen. It used to come on before. Even my Wife has tried but No Way. It Is Loud Enough But I just want to SEE IT. I Cannot Understand the Instruction Booklet that Came with the Phone. On Page 55 it says that During a call you may Adjust it, Up or Down.

Also on Page 32 it says the same thing. What am I Doing Wrong, Why has this Feature Disappeared from me? I only use, Phone and All. I do NOT Use Sim or Favorites to Conserve Battery Energy. It is Set to Maximum, But I Cannot See it. Can Some Wonderful Person Please Help Me? God Bless You! I Am 70 Years Old and Electronic Thin...

Why is LCD Screen and Digitizer Replacement Parts Necessary for Repairing Smartphone

With the development of high end smartphones over recent years, the mobile phone technology has made huge improvement. However such progress has also come with some drawbacks.

Users can buy LCD Screen and Digitizer Replacement Parts (HEX Electronics Technology Co. Ltd) for DIY repairs.

corded neckband headset?

I'm looking for a more comfortable headset to use with an iPhone. Rather not have it in the ear or on the head all the time, so I'm thinking a neckband-type headset would be best.

I also want high audio quality, so I'm looking for a corded/wired one.

I've tried various Bluetooth headsets, and a neckband-type one*, and the sound quality with them are all not good, muddy. I want crystal clarity like with the iPhone's onboard mike, but I've got carpal tunnel so I can't hold the phone long.

Any suggestions, please?

Moto G Flip Case Review

I recently got the Moto G with Verizon Prepaid and prior to getting my phone I ordered the Moto G Flip Case in Lemon Lime from I personally prefer folio cases compared to open face cases like Otterbox.

The overall design of the case is very high quality it feels like a rough cloth on the outside for a good grip, and has a velvety microfiber interior for the screen cover. The package it came in was super simple to open which I appreciate.

Also the screen cover has a magnet which turns the display on and off when its opened and closed.

The lemon lime color is closer to a neon yellow than green but I still like it.

My only negative has nothing to do with the case but with Motorola's shipping. When ordering the case ...

GM to introduce wireless charging in select 2014 models

Buy a new car today, and it’s likely to come with Bluetooth to wirelessly stream phone calls and music from your smartphone. It doesn’t do away all the cord clutter in your cabin, unfortunately. If you want to charge your phone, you still need a USB cable.

Several manufacturers are racing to integrate wireless charging tech, and it looks like GM may be the first to deliver on a large scale. According to a Bloomberg report, the company is hashing out details with the folks at Powermat.

GM invested in Powermat back in 2011 and integrated its charging system in the 2012 Chevy Volt. It’s no surprise that GM now wants to expand the partnership.
While that’s certainly good news, it’s not good news for everyone. There’s no single...

The Way of Charging A Lithium Ion Battery

Lithium ion batteries are now widely used in cell phones because of its highly efficient and environmental friendliness. While a lithium ion battery is being charged, ions are forced into the anode and cathode of the battery by the electric current. The process of charging is simple if you follow some simple precautions to insure safety and to maximize the life of the batteries. Always check the battery manufacturer's specifications before you charge a lithium ion battery. Improper charging may result in a serious fire hazard.

1. Use a battery charger which is designed for the lithium ion batteries. Never use a low power (trickle charge) system. This can cause lithium to adhere to the anode and oxygen to be generated at the cathode, produ...

Tips for Storing Lithium Ion Batteries

Nowadays, rechargeable lithium ion batteries are commonly used in cell phones and other portable devices. The batteries can be stored when they are not installed in a device, for a period of time without irreparable harm. If lithium ion batteries are stored in conditions that are too hot or cold, or without any charge, they may not be able to be revived when they are needed.

1. Using a battery charger that is meant for lithium ion batteries, charge your batteries. Lithium ion batteries had better be charged at least at 40 percent to avoid future charging problems. If you battery is completely power off, you need to charge it for about half an hour to get to 40 percent.

2. Find a cool and dry place to store your lithium ion batteries. A...
