Help Stuck in a nightmare

Hello to all,
I'm in need of some serious help, I am currently stuck in a nightmare. I was recently stalked and harassed by a real sick individual. This individual sent me numerous threatening text messages, but they don't show up on phone records. I am so beyond confused and beside myself. How is this possible??? Can anyone offer me some input because I'm really flabbergasted

Sony Xperia 1 j8170 reset help

A few months ago I found a dinged up Sony Xperia 1 in a dumpster. It has a password on it that I haven't been able to guess yet. I have spent 30+ hours trying to unlock it, flash firmware, and get to the recovery menu by powering up while holding down the volume down button. If there is anyone out there that has been successful in resetting one of these phones without the password I would love to get some help from you.

Cell phone signal booster

I'm researching the possibility of using a cell phone signal booster on my Vespa -?-

I currently listen to YouTube full musical albums while scooting. I live on the northern California coast. There are 'pockets' of seemingly no signal available; while, the majority of the time the signal is fine.

I currently have a 'booster' in my travel trailer (12v system) & it works fine.

I'm curious whether a similar unit would work while riding the scooter -?-

I have room in the glove compartment and/or under the seat where it could be mounted.

Any info/referral will help.

Thanks, Mark

Kyocera DuraForce Pro 2 - Preset Ringtones

I know how to add ringtones and select them for the default ringtone. However, I want to add a custom ringtone to specific contacts. Yes, I know to go to the contact and click on the menu to select a ringtone. However, the only ringtones I see are in the Preset folder. I can't find that folder when I connect to my PC via USB. The other option is Sound, but it's empty. Does anyone know how to access those folders to add different ringtones?

Cloning a group of phones

Is there a program available that will allow one to clone identical model Android cellphones? Something like the programs available for PC's that allow you to image the master and duplicate it on other PCs?

We want to issue our sales force identical phones that are supplied by our network people.

The only programs I can find so far only allow you to backup contacts, SMS, etc but do not duplicate the GUI layouts on the screens.

Thanks in advance!

Samsung Galaxy a50 software update

I've just downloaded the latest update and for some reason it's disabled the alerts for incoming emails (both the buzzer sound and the visual alert on the home screen). I remember the same thing happening about 12 months ago and it resolved itself in a few days. Any suggestions?

I cannot find a file that I downloaded to my phone


I have a LG AS330 phone running Android 5.1.1. I just downloaded a Youtube video from www.youtubnow.com. At the top of the video, it shows the video location on my phone as: file:///storage/emulated/0/1. I cannot find this location on my phone. Does my phone have to be rooted in order to find this location?

Thank you

BRANSON, Missouri -- An emotional vigil was held overnight for the 17 people killed when a tourist duck boat capsized during a severe thunderstorm in Missouri. Flowers were thrown into the water where the victims-- many of them children, one just a year old-- lost their lives.
A survivor, who lost nine members of her family, shared what happened when she was tossed into the water.
"I said Lord, just let me die, let me die. I can't keep drowning, I just can't keep drowning. And then I just let go," said Tia Coleman.

What is the best app to find top ranked stock market advisors easily and fast?

When you do a simple Google search, then you will get many search results of the mobile applications claiming to be the best in the market. However, I would suggest that you must follow a cautious approach rather than downloading 1 or 2 apps on your phone and not getting the desired results and feel dissapointed.

Today, we are in the technology-driven world and when you require fast and best advice, then I would suggest you try advisorymandi.com app. Here you will get the right and accurate information by the SEBI registered advisors and I suppose, when you are getting an advice from the authorized persons, then it will definitely help you a lot, especially when you are a first time investor.

I am trading in the stock market for almo...
