  • Replied in Confused
    I always admire how so many members of this forum are tech savvy. I'm not so fortunate. I'm still confused about Google Messages. Is it okay to use without enabling chat? It is okay to use it at all? ...
  • Yes, I typed it wrong the first time. I do use Messages. LOL, I never consciously noticed the .7 line. Same here.
  • Thank you everyone for your insights. Still a bit over my head but you've given information that I can use to better educate myself.
  • Created discussion thread New Google chat
    Can someone please help me decipher this article ? I've been using Google Messenger for some time. The other day it presented me with the choice to switch it to Chat. I didn't. Then I read this: ...
  • I do use Google services, including Drive. I try to shut off as many of the intrusive stuff that I can find. I do back up important files to an external hard drive. Chrome is a CPU hog (!) and I ...
  • Didn't take me long to find the answer in the settings: "Use the COVID-19 Exposure Notifications System on your Android phone...to let you understand whether you've been exposed to someone... It ...
  • You're correct about the HTML. I can send a message in all caps. I can send just the brackets <>. However <TEST> can not be sent.
  • You got it!! On the contrary...everyone has been so helpful. I looked at the message I was trying to send to find out what it contained that was different than anything I previously typed. I found ...
  • Replied in could
    No error messages. The message just hangs there without being sent. Says "Sending" but nothing happens. A few get through with the same amount of text as the one that doesn't (one paragraph). I use ...
  • Replied in However...
    I tried again and able to send short messages but not able to send one with a couple of paragraphs. I must have tried a dozen times. Never had this problem before.
  • Thank you! Received your message and was able to send to you. However, I was not able to send to another individual no matter what I try. :0 Is there a limit to the number of messages you can send ...
  • Created discussion thread Messages not working
    For the last hour, I've been trying to send a message through this forum. The messages can not be sent. Anyone else having this problem?
  • You're right. Defeats the purpose of having a small phone if you have to carry around a charging pack.  If they can improve the battery, there might be more of a market. I recently bought a new ...
  • The phone is interesting. It seems it would have very limited use, especially the battery.  I've read that its 800mAh battery depletes rapidly.
  • Thanks for the tip. I did so and it sure brought up a lot of stuff. Right now the best way to tackle it for me is to check an app after an unwanted notification appears. I think I turned most of ...
  • Interesting suggestion. I typically check my settings inside and out but, at this point as a new Android 10 user, I find the phone settings daunting. I think The Verge sums it up nicely: "Android ...
  • Forgive my ignorance (just went from Android 7 to Android 10 on a new phone). What's a lockdown feature? Never heard of it or 2FA, though I've just now briefly read about the later at Wikipedia. ...
  • Two days ago I got a new Android SmartPhone and like Android 10 a lot. My previous phone was Android 7. However, all the frequent notifications are grossly annoying! I discovered that many apps are ...
  • Replied in Whew!
    It's taken me two days to figure out my new phone and transfer everything over to it (old phone > Bluetooth to Computer > Bluetooth computer to phone. Almost all apps that I use were automatically ...
  • Taken a very long time ago with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 (7.2MP). I saw this couple when I was walking along the beach and snapped the pic. I couldn't help but sense their tenderness towards one ...
