So I had a bad run in the last few months with phones. When Asurion tells me my deductible is $190.00 to repair my screen I flipped out. SO I go dig up my old treos and find out I cant use them. Now i'm really flipping out, Yes I can afford a new phone I have chosen to run on Pixel for now, I refuse to eat from the evil apple. I have already ordered my new screen to instal myself. However I am now obsessively trying to find a use for my old treo's. I found a old article posted from here, I do not need a universal remote. I use Verizon temporarily at this point because all three are Verizon locked phones. I called customer support and battled for three days and was told that they would not help me unlock them even though they won't activate on the network. That's my rant, please if any one has a Idea on what I can use them for i would be grateful, my Wife has repeatedly told me paper weight so please don't. my 10 year old thinks bookends would look cool. Also I do not want to pay someone to unlock them. Push come to shove I will disassemble and part it out. But I do not like that I can even make walkie talkies because there locked. Thank you
I use the OOKLA Speed Test, but I just found another app for my Kindle Fire that looks to be helpful, pre-deployment. It also shows you what Karma and to some extent (I think) PineAP are doing. It's called WiFi Overview 360 Pro. Cost me 3 bucks USD from Amazon. First, it can give you info on which channels are more open, prior to deployment.
I got a pre-paid cell and stopped service on my iPhone b/c too many people had my number from when I was younger. So I greatly reduced the number of incoming calls and it's been great. However, someone just called me from this number: 503-235-1259 which I tracked down to an Immigrant community group in Portland, OR, though that information could be outdated. I am neither from Portland, OR nor an Immigrant (at least not to the US). So I called the # back and it says it's DISCONNECTED!! WTH? Is it some hacker/spy/agent/big-brother/rival/phreak-from-my-linux-club phucking with me or? I increased my internal DEFCON level and went in paranoid 20th century phone phreak mode immediately. Can you tell me what this means and/or help me research the number? I should probably ask the Phone Losers of America but I haven't delt with them first hand before and I'd rather just ask you guys. Thanks!
