Trying to find charger compatibility with different phones.

My job requires me to find out what phones use the same chargers as previos models or if they have their own unique charger. Does anyone have any idea on how to go about doing this. This is for all phones, all companies.

Text messaging

Can anyone please help me with this, thankyou.

A friend of mine just recently told me she's not getting my texts. We can call each other just fine and I get her texts also.

It makes me wonder because I requested a delivery report recently for each text I try and sent.
It says received by her number and shows sent on my end. Is she most likely playing games or ?

what is my phone trying to tell me?

I have an LGK7. From time to time it makes a tinkling sound and there appears to be what looks like a Chrome symbol along the top of the screen. What is it doing?

6P not charging as fast as is used to.

Im still on 8.4.1 with very few tweaks and no new ones lately. I have a 12 watt charger that would charge my phone 1% per minute. It was really quick, even tested with another although 10 watt. My phone charges as if it were a I5. With the size of the battery it takes way too long. Anyone else have charging issues?

Are there any 3G/4G non-smartphones that can auto-lock?

Does anyone know of a dumb/feature phone (ie; something that isn't a smartphone, doesn't run android, and doesn't have a touchscreen) that's 3G or 4G and has the ability to automatically lock itself with a password or pin after being idle for a few minutes? I'm not talking about some "press two keys" thing that prevents pocket dialing, but an actual password or four digit pin.

Turing Robotics Phone

Was just curious about the ever-delayed Turing Phone. Versions of this phone have been promised since 2013. They switched names (to Turing) and then promised a release date late 2015, which slipped to Jan, which slipped to April, which slipped to this month.

They have shown no videos of the UI, no real photos of the phone (all renderings), and yet they still claim that all this info is "forthcoming" and that people will have phones in hand soon.

I asked a long time about about band 12 compatibility on T-Mo and they didn't seem to know what I was talking about based on their response.

I would imagine the surest way to see if this phone was really coming out in the next two weeks is to find out if it was approved by the FCC. Is ther...

Need help picking reliable basic smartphone

Been out of phone market a long time - not an avid user.
I say smartphone, because it may be the only way to get 3G AND easy to type on keyboard for stiff hands.

Looking for relatively inexpensive, but known reliable 3G phone. The $50 ones - afraid that's "TOO cheap?" Thinking $100 - 150. Maybe more, if great reliability justified it. A reliable 4G would price me out.

Didn't have a data plan (may now have some access thru family member's new AT&T plan).
2G service is ending - my Motorola flip reception isn't reliable .
Though I need meds after creating text msgs on it - tedious.

Primary concerns:
1. Most important: Good reception / signal strength - few dropped calls. "Great resolution for vids" is meaningless if only gets 2 b...

external antenna port

I live in a rural area and use a yagi antenna to connect to my cell phone external antenna port. I have a list of phones and carriers that have antenna ports, but the list is severely OUTDATED. None of the phones on the list are available NEW. Can anyone suggest a new at&t phone with a external port. I need to use at&t as they provide better coverage in a rural area. thx
