Cellphone addiction?

It’s well known that people can become addicted to drugs, such as alcohol, narcotics and the nicotine in cigarettes.

Ways to save money on a wireless plan/phone

Check out this book I read on Amazon. The author also gives you an email address where he will answer any other questions you have. He donates money to non profits for families affected by texting drivers.

Now that apple has started to repair i5 for $150, most retail repair stores cannot compete. Their business relies on i4/i4s repair.

When these models fall out of cycle, what are everyones thoughts on repair store boom?

Can they afford expensive LCD screen to stock on shelves? Can they compete with competition from carrier repair/exchange?

Using bluetooth to make my landline phone ring with my cell phone

I am new so please bare with me. I have a Galaxy 3 which I hate but I was in an accident and my sister bought it for me. She just went to AT&T (my carrier) and asked for the best phone. Until I buy a windows phone I have a question about bluetooth on this phone.

Does Cell phone spying work?

Hi all,
I see these websites ADs that you could listen in someone elses call, read text check pnone contact list ect without installing anything on the target phone. I was wondering if it is possible.

My question is; Is it possible? If you answer yes please explain. Remember you do not have access to the target phone. What distance does the target phone has to be for this to happen?

Can I hire may be an internet company to do this for a monthly fee? So all I recieve is the data.

Phone Modes and What it means.

I'm hoping to get a good technical person that can render authoritative information. Smile
My basic question is this: Does the greater number of modes (combinations of frequencies and technologies) give one phone over another a better chance of getting a signal? As an example: if I use the Motorola Razr M, which has the following modes:
LTE 750
WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100
CDMA 850/900
GSM 850/900/1800/1900

Can I expect it to have better reception than say an iPhone 4S that only has the following modes:
WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100
CDMA 850/900
GSM 850/900/1800/1900

Or worse yet, an iPhone 4 (CDMA) that only has:
CDMA 850/1900
