  1. Getting Info From a Cell Phone


    I have a Samsung Android Note 8.
    I'm looking for a FREE program that will allow me to download my phone contacts list to my computer for printing and backup.
    I'm trying to avoid having to hand copy the list and make it easier to update my backup as I add/subtract contacts.

    I've done a couple of Google searches and can't find anything that would do what I need.
    I've found some expensive programs that may do it, but it seems there should be a free program for such a simple task!

    Suggestions???

    Blocking Cell Phone Numbers

    Here's one way to get around the problem. It's kludgy but it should work.

    Get a VOIP based phone service or a magic jack. For 24/7 access, you're better off with VOIP that uses an ethernet adapter, but that's up to the user.

    The important point is to find one that lets you create your own "black list" of callers. Usually they will have both black and white list options and these are usually a subcategory under the "do not disturb" or similar feature.

    The provider will usually let you create a second number for $5-10 per month. You'll use this for your cell phone number. If it is ever compromised, you can change it easily without affecting the base number.

    Forward the second number to your cell phone and give everyone that one as your "cell phone" number. There will be a delay of a few seconds as calls get routed, but who cares. It's not like any of us is on Obama's speed dial right?

    Now when you get assholes calling you, just add them to the black list.

    You can also block calls w/o caller id this way if your cell phone co. doesn't already do that for you.

    Getting Info From a Cell Phone

    What Cell Phone? (or smart phone?)

    I just got back to the USA from almost 4 years in the UK.

    This has given me the chance to get a new Cell Phone. But now everyone has Phones that do e-mail, web, pics, video, streaming media, navigation, and so on.

    I have no clue what to get.

    I liked my friends "Windows Smart Phone." I had all the stuff I wanted, like watching downloaded shows in MPEG4, DivX and doing e-mail and IM.

    However, I don't remember what he had. lol

    What do yall think? any suggestions?

    I want a phone that I can watch my downloaded TV shows on DivX .avi and does e-mail.
