  • I thought I did but after rereading the instructions, I think I used different ones. I'm recovering from recent surgery and will try when I'm able and will let you know if it worked. Thanks again ...
  • Thank you. I tried this several times both by myself and having Apple walk me through it. No luck. The screen remains black; will not reboot. Time to say goodbye to iPhone6.
  • Replied in Hammer & towel
    LOL! I was expecting the iPhone wouldn't get blended. :-P;-) My grandson will have fun smashing it with a hammer tomorrow; wrapped up in a thick towel.
  • As mentioned, my daughter bought a new iphone. How do we destroy the old one; the costs to fix and buying a new battery are just not worth it. Don't want others to get the information on it. Thanks.
  • No such assumption was made. Keep reaching out in the ways that work best for you. The main thing is for all of us to reach out. There are a lot of good people on's just Facebook, ...
  • I think you ARE special, especially for helping others feel special. A million thanks!
  • I'd certainly get an i5 processor and at least 8 GB memory. Don't buy before understanding the system requirements for PS Elements . Each version has different system requirements, including the ...
  • I believe you are correct. It's a Tiger Lilly. Beautiful image never-the-less. This is Lilly of the Valley, which has a beautiful aroma: Photo Credit: KIMDAEJEUNG/Pixabay
  • Different strokes for different folks. If you're happy using Social Media, and you obviously are, continue to do so. I use different methods to have fun and cheer up someone.
  • As I've already mentioned to you, I deleted my personal FB page almost 2 years ago. Twitter too. Compared to most users, I'm pretty savvy about this stuff. I'm convinced, you can't keep up, figure ...
  • Replied in Ink hog
    I haven't used Epson printers for years; mostly Canon. Because of space considerations I ended up buying a HP Envy. However, it gulps ink and the cartridges are very expensive. When I printed a ...
  • Thanks for this. It lead me to see there are four apps that I use online, associated with Google Drive. So i'ts okay to let Instant app install? Do you know why it doesn't give me a choice other ...
  • She is getting texts with transcripts of voicemails. We will contact the service provider to find out why. Thank you for the insight!
  • Created question thread Instant app tries to install itself
    Every couple of weeks, I see something called "instant app" downloading to my phone, even though I have auto update shut off in the Playstore. I cancel it before it has time to install. I know ...
  • Created discussion thread iPhone voicemail-to-text
    My daughter bought an iPhone 6s. It has a very annoying thing called voicemail-to-text. I researched it and, as far as I can tell, there is no way to shut off voicemail transcription. Please tell ...
  • Replied in Priceless
    In the 12+ years I've been active in dpreview forums, this has to be one of my favorite threads...the sincerity of the original poster and the great responses!
  • I'm actually in the market for a new printer but dpreview is of no help. The last printer review that I can find is six years old. Dpreview, why don't you remove the category if you're not going ...
  • Sounds like Firefox is the way to go to tackle pop-ups and, hopefully, videos and sliding videos. I'll give it a try. btw, I use the mute tab in Chrome to shut off sound, but you have to turn it ...
  • Isn't it the ads that bog down things? Even if you use an adblocker, it takes time for the blocker to load. Anyone know of a way to rid of those confounded videos that play automatically and slide ...
  • Thanks for the info. I'll give Apple a call this week. According to one of the references, repairs seem to be very expensive. Plus we'd probably need a new battery ($49.00 locally). My daughter ...
