re: At&t and new phones question - Fred Farkle
If you do the 2yr contract deal for the reduced price ask them if they are going to remove your "discount" for connecting the line to network every month. Almost always, when you do the contract plan / one time payment thay are going to increase your line connection fee from $15 to $40. End resul...

re: how to turn ringer off on iphone, except for certain callers - Fred Farkle

re: Tell me about Paris - Fred Farkle
If I had 5 days to suggest for a first trip there: Arrival in afternoon - Go to Hotel and then immediately get out. Go for a walk. Maybe even ride one of the boats on the Seine. Don't sleep - you will get past your jet lag by staying up. Day Two - Notre Dame and Louvre. Day Three - Walk th...

re: Tell me about Paris - Fred Farkle
I know - so much to do and see. OP - Consider downloading the Rick Steve's walking tours to your phone and use those for getting around some. They are really, really great when you don't have a tour guide and want to go at your own pace. Gives a ton of context and information that helps you "expe...

Good advice in here. After Napoleon's Tomb walk down the block to see Rodin's "The Thinker" sculpture at the Rodin museum too. And the Musee d'Orsay is unreal. Do not skip it....

re: When you upgrade your phone with AT&T (not AT&T Next) - Fred Farkle
Not sure about that. Even under the older plans, when you go to "upgrade" they automatically change (increase by $25) your charges for the network access if you don't use the next option. Now if you show up with your own phone that you bought somewhere else, you are right, no plan change. ...

re: When you upgrade your phone with AT&T (not AT&T Next) - Fred Farkle
Bottom line - pay about $25 more per month when you go next to pay for your new phone over time OR pay about $25 more per month for your phone network access fee, which is probably about $15 per month now if you just upgrade using the $200 new phone option. With that option they bump your phone netw...

re: I have a LG G3 and this Lollipop update sucks - Fred Farkle
If you perform the LG backup to a micro sd card then factory reset the phone then update to Lollipop you should be OK. That LG backup is actually pretty good. It wont save every single preference but it will save enough to make it worth while. Settings-personal-backup and Reset-LG backup service....
