What should I do for Lost Android Contacts?

I was composing a message and the phone got stuck when I was about to select the recipients. (Wanted to group send message so that’s why I was not answering directly.) After waiting for a while the phone was still not responding then I forced to shut down and turned it on again. Okay I again edited the same text and tap to choose receivers. Good grief! NO CONTACTS! EMPTY! Why? What happened?

I first tried to sync Gmail contacts back to my HTC, however when I logged in to Gmail and it was the same! NO CONTACTS!

Long story short, I finally found Myjad Android Contact Recovery which seems to be useful because I want simply the contacts. So is there anyone tried successfully restoring lost contacts with this program? Any advice? Many th...

Verizon let me upgrade and remain on unlimited data.


After almost a year of terror, blackmail, extortion and torment I finally got an upgrade to the new iPhone and still kept unlimited. For almost a year I was met with resistance from Verizon COR reps telling me "you can't keep unlimited because it doesn't exist". This was always something that seemed nonsensical because of the fact that it obviously DOES exist because I have it. It may not be offered anymore, but denying it's existence is just insulting. You'd figure that the bean counters at the check mark would have come up with something g better.

That said, after several conversations with CS, one of them finally revealed that they have a 12 month "NEXT" type of program that allows one to split up the retail cost of the phone...

Android VS iOS, which is better??

I am not sure if I am putting this in the correct forum, however I pose the question. To be totally honest I am a student majoring in computer science, and I happen to work for an indirect Verizon agent. Well for one of my classes I have to write a persuasive speech, hence the question. I didn't want to ask just anyone, but people who have actual knowledge on the topic. So any input one way or another would be great! And please, tell me why? Even if it is because it comes in a cool color is a valid reason. Thank you!

rice bag method for wet phone works?

Hi guys,
I read on this blog that putting your wet phone in rice bag could save it from getting dead. Just want to know if any one has actually experienced it and does it work or not. If this doesn't work, then is there any other method to save a wet phone? Asking because I'm someone who keep dropping my phone in water.

Need a recommendation

So, my father (almost 70) wants a new phone. Here are the limitations:

We don't want to have to get a data plan. So I'm looking to buy something used/unlocked. (we have AT&T.)

He wants something with a big enough screen to see pics of his granddaughter (and daughter).

It needs to have a keyboard big enough to see the keys and not fat-finger too much.

It needs good reception and reliability.

It would be nice if it's durable so it won't die if he bumps it or drops it in his workshop.

Battery time isn't a big deal as he only uses it when he's out and always charges it when he gets home.

Format isn't a big deal... flip, bar, etc. Doesn't matter.

So, does anyone have any suggestions?
