Seeking dumb phone as data gateway for multiple devices

Dear Phone Scoop Forum Members.

After much reading, I don't find a clear solution. I know how to tether a PC through a dumb phone, using Bluetooth DUN. Or tether a tablet through a smart phone using either WiFi or BT-PAN.

But what if I want my tablet to connect through a dumb phone? The dumb phone would be for calls. The tablet for browsing.

Imagine I have the tablet.
And want to buy a rugged simple dumb phone, and plan, for calling and data.
I'm willing to pay for a tethering plan... cost is not the object, ease of setup is.
What models, plans (in the USA), and settings are needed?


Keywords: feature phone, WiFi tethering, Bluetooth DUN, BT-PAN.

Call quality using GrooVe IP, TalkaTone, NetTALK, etc on a smartphone

I've seen articles about using VOIP apps on a smartphone when connected to wifi to save on voice minutes. But is the call quality anywhere as good as using the normal cell tower? I'd like to know before I get a prepaid plan with low voice minutes.

Do you agree with this list?

Most of this I agree with.... I personally think the S III is probably the best phone out right now.

Phone cloning

I havn't been in the cell phone industry in about 2 years but is their a new type of cell phone cloning? Back in the day it was copying one phones esn or imei or sim card information onto another device so the network thought the 2nd phone was the first.
But I had a lady call in to me yesterday saying her smartphone had been cloned and they now had copied all the information in it and could listen to everything she said.
Does this actually happen or is this lady of the aluminum foil hat variety?

Moving from USA to Europe. No service now. Advice?

Hi,

Currently, I do not have a mobile service provider nor a mobile phone number. I do have a mobile phone though, an unlocked quad-band GSM phone. In a few months, I will be moving from the US to Europe. Occasionally I will return to the US to visit.

In the meantime, I am searching for a US mobile service plan. Whichever US plan I choose, I want to keep its phone number when I move to Europe so that I can use it when I return to the US. But I also do not want to pay a lot of money just to keep the US phone number.

So, my questions are:

1.) Which US mobile service plan fits my needs best?

My estimated monthly talk time is 150 minutes. Light data usage is required (directions, web browsing, etc). I would prefer to pay approxima...

He muzzled Cam Newton also, the Carolina Panthers on the opener

Tampa keyed on Newton from beginning to finish, getting away Carolina's major weapon. It's a not-too-surprising approach notable while in the school ranks, whereby just about the most talented participant about the industry will take greater than game titles.

Schiano authored weekly one match system geared towards getting absent Newton's gifts within the ground, and he did the Authentic Carolina Panthers Jerseys identical Sunday with Jamaal Charles, the Chiefs' managing again who potential customers the NFL in dashing and may perhaps be the only real play-maker Kansas Metropolis can lean on this season.

The Chiefs utilised Charles to consume up yardage and minutes towards the Baltimore Ravens two months ago, but the Bucs -- expecting ...

Siri and Other Speech Recognition Apps

My question is this; where are all the complainers who chided Nextel users for having speakerphone conversations in public? At least we are speaking to real people instead of an app!

I also would like to know why these same folk think it is easier to text than Direct Connect? Does not using an app like Siri defeat that rationale?

Search by LTE band

Right now, there is only a check box in the phone finder for LTE. The problem is, LTE has different bands. It would be nice if we could expand the LTE search option to select different bands the phone must have.

Example, I want a phone that works on T-Mobile USA (LTE Band 4) and western Europe (LTE Band 7, mostly). If the phone can't do both, I don't want it.

How to Choose a Business VoIP System

I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with choosing a voip system for a mid-sized (~20 employees) office. I feel like there's way too many options out there... for example, a colleague recommended this one:

but I want to explore different options before making a decision. What are you typically supposed to look for when you choose a VoIP system for business? Thanks in advance!
