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. One of the drawbacks is the cost of mobile phone repairs. Thanks to the introduction of touch screen technology, the cost of replacing a scratched or broken screen is now more expensive than ever. The cost of repairing a cracked or scratched phone will not be contained in the warranty, therefore users can get the repair done by themselves to save some fee. Users can buy LCD Screen and Digitizer Replacement Parts (HEX Electronics Technology Co. Ltd) for DIY repairs. The following is a brief introduction of the benefits of purchasing LCD screen and digitizer replacement ...

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?

External battery packs

It's annoying when my phone/tab go dead and there isn't any wall power source around. Then an external battery pack is a must have. I'm looking for an external battery pack then I can put it in my bag as backup power when out for camping. I've tried Anker Astro E4, but it can't charge my tab.

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 ...

Galaxy Note 2 Smart Dock Review

First off ill start saying that the galaxy note 2 is a great phone and with this dock makes it even greater. This is the best dock I have seen on any platform. Worth the money if you want to charge and output to a television or other display device. Great for watching Netflix and you can hook up a mouse and keyboard. It works great surfing the web and editing documents, almost as good as a desktop for certain things. You can also hook up a usb controller to play games (particularly old emulated SNES and Playstation 1 games). It works as advertised and is worth the cost if you want to get a lot more out of your Note 2. This is one great Accessory to have if you buy a Note 2 it may cost a little but its extremely worth the price to have this a...

Protective Film Suggestions?

Does anyone have a protective film on their device, and if so, which brand? I had my device waterproofed (Liquipel) and they also applied Gadget Filmz to the screen but less than a week after getting it back two air bubbles have appeared thus I am looking for an alternative though I was sent a replacement by the company but the application process looks like too much work.
