I need a battery recommendation for the Galaxy S3
Feb 22, 2017, 6:13 AM
in the Samsung forum

My wife has had back luck with batteries with her Galaxy S3. I've purchased different brands through the years including genuine OEM Samsung batteries. None of them seem to provide much battery life. She turns off bluetooth and other settings that drain the battery. Maybe it's just getting old. Is there a brand of battery for the S3I that will last longer than the rest? There are YouTube videos about the ZeroLemon extended battery but I haven't read any ...

Can a magnet in the case corrupt a cellphone display?

I know a magnet will corrupt the display on a computer monitor, and I wonder if this is what happened to the display on my old Samsung SCH-U450. http://i59.tinypic.com/30najdg.j pg Those black splotches weren't there before I started using a case with a magnet. I am reluctant to get a case with a magnet closure for my smartphone if the same will happen.

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.

Well, I'll confess that I'm just joining this thread, and no, I haven't read all the replies. But I will say that I've been a happy PagePlus customer for a couple years. I have two family phones and two business phones all on the pay-as-you-go plan. I registered all phones on the PP website, buy my PINs through CallingMart with my PayPal account, then just copy and paste the PIN to the phone I want to add minutes to. I ...

Re: Can I activate an old Sony Ericsson T226 as a T-Mobile prepaid?

Well, I would much prefer spending $20 than purchasing a data cable, downloading BitPim (or whatever it's called) and playing with it for half a day in effor to unlock a phone. Been there, done that, not worth the effot. Thanks for your advice.

Can I activate an old Sony Ericsson T226 as a T-Mobile prepaid?
Oct 24, 2009, 10:54 AM
in the T-Mobile forum

I have an old Sony Ericsson T226 from back when Cellular One was still in business. One of my employees needs a cell phone briefly and I would like to buy a prepaid SIM card and use it with this phone. I really don't want a postpaid account because he's only going to be using this phone for a few weeks at most. Will the T Mobile prepaid SIM card be compatible with this old phone? I looked on ...

Should I use a non-OEM battery in my RAZR?
Mar 28, 2009, 3:23 PM
in the Motorola forum

I have a fairly new battery in my RAZR V3m but due to heavy use I have to charge it nearly every evening. I see a lot of non-OEM extended batteries with the door for the RAZR for sale on eBay and all of them say something like, "This battery is made specifically for your cellular phone and to meet or exceed the original manufacturer specifications." I'm definitely going to get the extended battery although I can see ...
