New phone

Having had a NEW windows 10 phone 2 years back i decided to get a free upgrade to an galaxy android which i had and liked before.

I have registered for android , google and facebook as well as the cloud i think.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO MANE PHONE CALL WITH SUCH DEVICE PLEASE .

HOW DO I GET DIALTONE ?

I DO NOT WANT TO HASHTAG OR UNFRIEND SOMEONE PARTICULLARLY.

HOW DO I GE T THE SPEAKING CLOCK OR OPERATOR.

iI will post a pic when it comes back from the shops , with the free otters if that helps..

EDIT

It has successfully paired with the fridge, and currently chatting up the toaster.

Only emergency calls allowed which seem to be directed to microsoft emergency helpline recorded message.

...and currently chatting up the toaster.

This toaster?

neato. let's connect our personal toys later.

Mine does not talk , i think it is an earlier version.
It just rings me up and tells me it's hot, i think it's the toaster anyway. :slight_smile:

Step 1: Take your Galaxy back and get an iPhone.
(Android phones may work just like this. I don't know. Why would I?)

Step 2: Quickly press and release the icon that looks like a phone, on the screen of your phone (this is called "clicking.") Some other icons appear when you do it successfully.

Step 3: Click the icon that looks similar to a button pad of a push-button phone. Once you do this, a graphic representation of a button pad appears.

Step 4: By clicking the buttons on the pad, "dial" the number you want to call. When the call goes through, and the screen changes color scheme. You may hear some noises.

Step 5: Click the icon that looks like a speaker in cross section. This makes the sound loud. You should now hear ringing.

Step 6: When your party answers, just talk as if they were on the phone with you (they ARE!)

Step 7: Once you are done, say "Good bye." and click the red button near the bottom of your phone's screen.

That's all!

HOW DO I GET DIALTONE ? ...

You probably won't. The dial tone was an artifact of the analog telephone system. Just follow the above sequence (making the appropriate adjustments for your phone's operating system) and it will work.

I DO NOT WANT TO HASHTAG OR UNFRIEND SOMEONE PARTICULLARLY. ...

Delete the "apps" Facebook and Twitter (and instagram, snapchat, whatsap, yelp, etc.) They aren't needed.

Smartphone apps I like are Scanner Pro, Dropbox, the camera app of course, my bank's app, the New York Times (or other news source of your choice. Breitbart for all I care), my pharmacy's app, the texting app, my personal email app as well as my work email app, a calendar and an emulator for my favorite calculator (the HP48GX.)

HOW DO I GE T THE SPEAKING CLOCK OR OPERATOR. ...

How old ARE you!?!

Remember back in grade school, when they taught us phone use AND etiquette, they gave us a plastic stylus with a ball at the end, made to use with a phone dial? Efficient, sanitary, and in the right hands, oh so sexy. ... I miss the 1960s!

The clock is on the internet (oh right - your phone has a web browser app.) The operator Lilly Tomlin is on the Netflix series Frankie and Gracie. I have the Netflix app on my phone too.

I thoroughly deserve it. :slight_smile:
It was awful.

Hi,

Can you get an app that puts a proper rotary dailer on the screen, instead of a "keepaddd"

[soapbox]
Non Iphone, galaxy what ever user, long live my Nokia C5

I'd say I've had it 5 years, battery still good, takes pictures, recharges quick (2 hours), tells me who is calling, fits in top pocket, hands free sounds better than some of the latest examples, gets better reception than most "smaarrtt fones"
Also who is gunna mug you for a 3G phone?

My boss has been through 3 "smarrrt fones" in three years and he has lost count of how many screens that have cracked.

I drop my phone, pick it up and dust it off, I know its useable.

He drops his "smarty", picks it up, curses, checks to see if phone might be useable.

I know why they are so often dropped, you can't get a good grip on a smarty phone, they are too wide.
You want a big screen, get your self a TV/laptop.

Can someone tell me how a smarttyyy fone will improve my life?

Exactly.
This one is going back for something simpler

Nokia E72.
A gem.

I just push the Green handset icon to bring up the number keypad on my Galaxy SIII.
If you didn't sign up for an account when you bought the phone, or had the account moved over from your flip phone (or whatever you had), then that's on you.

Having internet access to look stuff up on the road, or texting with friends/family when plans for get togethers are falling apart, etc. makes a phone really handy. Getting a document from a coworker while on the road it comes in really handy. Not so much if retired I suppose. Killing time while waiting, browsing the forum, listening to music, are also nice features.

Original reason for the WIN 10 device i think was my thumbs/eyesight were too big for the buttons on a small phone.
New device came with a free data dongle so i can use Ipad on the move easily , no arguments there.
Win 10 device did that well but was an awful phone.
No change in provider but the registration procedure is a nightmare, when i recieved the win 10 phone all i had to do was turn it on for 24 hours, turn off the old one , and they sorted it out

EDIT
I drove 20 + miles to a Onecom (Voodaphone) outlet, they could not sort it out either, salesperson did not seem to be that knowlegable though, unless i was buying a new phone of course.

Over 4 days and no one can answer my question.

Now Max Smart 86, he had a groovy shoe phone , with a rotary dialer too.
Although the audio quality might have been a bit tin-ear.

I cannot answer your question. I still carry...

Finally got it sorted.
Dongle is handy for email ETC.
Phone not so good, it works but nobody wants to talk to me. :confused:

Quite happy to use email however.
Especially if a financial transaction is involved.
Seems to come from nigerian servers though.

Lots of calls from friendly indian gentlemen though.
Apparantley my english bank has been ripping me off for years and the indian department of justice would like to give their assistance in bringing the criminals to justice for no charge.
Just have to give my bank details and they will transfer the fines to my account.
