    Post S8 beeped 3 times loudly, shut off and has blinking red LED, won't turn on

    Okay, well funny you say that because I was also messing around with the charging too. I specifically was setting it down and taking it off a QI charger from NeWisdom right as I set it down again, it did this. Maybe I did it more than a few times consecutively checking if I was getting fast...

    Thread S8 beeped 3 times loudly, shut off and has blinking red LED, won't turn on

    Well color me bummed! Have had the S8 for a few days, stock, only added 3 apps so far, sidesync, Clash of Clans and Lastpass. Anyway this morning, the phone was at 58% remaining battery, running fine. Then it beeped a weird tone 3 times, shut down and started blinking a red LED on the...

    Post Continuum a poor excuse for Desktop to Phone connection, just want mymobiler back...

    Sort of. In the past, and currently on Android or on iphone via jailbreak, you can remotely control your phone through a PC. This gives a person the ability to continue to use the same mouse and keyboard as their desktop, answer calls and reply to texts, etc. I understand Continuum was never...

    Thread Continuum a poor excuse for Desktop to Phone connection, just want mymobiler back...

    Windows 6.5 had this function, simply connect via wifi or USB (through activesync) and have 100% control over the phone from your mouse and keyboard. It was great, perfect and enabled no need to ever pickup my phone through my work day. Continuum blows compared to this. Do you think we will...

    Post Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL Discussion

    I have been running the 950 for about a week now. I was running Fast Ring Win 10 Mob on a 1020. Impressions compared to the 1020: Faster, fewer app crashes (although Messaging app still crashes on occasion), fewer wonky bugs like the keyboard not allowing typing when composing a text message...

    Post AT&T Lumia 950 Heating and Battery Drain

    When on the Fast Ring for the Lumia 1020 I was getting awful battery drain. Ended up being the messaging app. I believe because Skype was linked in with it. I had to discover this by using the Settings...System...Battery Saver...Battery use...section in the Settings. Since I upgraded to the...

    Post My review of the Lumia 1520.

    Thank for you for the review Vallista. As for your little back and forth...I could call anything well anything, it doesn't mean people would understand me. Using proper terminology seems to me...to be akin to using the correct syntax and terminologies when going into your local swag bar and...

    Post Lumia 920 Battery

    I am not totally sure on that because there isn't much of a way to test it, although I do know that with my Google Exchange that if I leave that to check as Items Arrive it is far more power draining than checking at intervals. ---------- Post added at 08:53 AM ---------- Previous post was at...

    Post Lumia 920 Battery

    Randy, I have 990 charging cycles on my 920 In the last 8 months. My Lumia 920 is exhibiting the same issues other phones and devices with this type of rechargeable battery do after so many charging cycles. It discharges about 40% faster than it did between 0-300 charging cycles and it...

    Post Drop down menu with touch on surface, problems

    Thank you for your reply. I understand and assumed the same. I have been working with an x61t for a few years so the jump to capacitive has thrown me a bit. Okay, so what are web developers doing instead of this type of drop down? I recently read an article that says a lot of developers are...

    Thread Drop down menu with touch on surface, problems

    Aloha all, Having trouble knowing how to ask this...bear with me. I am having problems with the menus that are triggered by the 'hover' action of a mouse. Using the surface pro or even my lumia 920 I am frequently unable to operate many menus on sites. officefootballpools.com...
