Up In The Air / Booking a ticket for a 12 year old to tlv
« on: January 07, 2020, 11:25:55 PM »
Hi I am flying in February from yyz to tlv on el al with a ticket purchased  with chase ur, now my child wants to come along. I tried to book him a ticket also with chase ur but it does not allow me to because he is too young even though I am traveling on the same flight with a different reservation. Can I book him with the wrong birthday? Should I call chase?
Thanks in advance.

Tech Talk / Data plan for waze and google maps only
« on: September 05, 2016, 07:17:59 PM »
Hi - I would like to use a cheap android phone as a gps - I only need data for waze or google maps and occasionally to look at an email. Obviously I do not need 4g and throttled data should be fine. Was are the best options? Are there any cheap options with unlimited 3g (I assume that is enough)?


Hi - I basically use a a flip dumb phone 95% of the time however occasionally I need to use a smartphone if I am driving on a long trip. I am on pageplus and use a flip phone that does not take a sim card. Is there any way to have a flip phone on pageplus or any verizon mvno that takes a sim card that I could switch to a smartphone when necessary  and keep the same number etc.. when I need to. I have searched and searched with no luck. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Just Shmooze / Advice on Kosher smartphone
« on: May 30, 2012, 09:44:33 PM »
I am trying to figure out if there are options for those who want a smartphone for the advanced features/camera/music etc. etc. but do not want internet access. Obviously one option is to have your phone provider block data (which is not great as you can get it back with one phone call). Is there some app for android that can lock down down data or apps that use the internet which cannot be uninstalled without a password? I have been using droidwall and avast (phone must be rooted) but both of them can be uninstalled without a password. On my home computer k9 can't be uninstalled without a password anything similar fro a droid?

Also have been using droidwall to only allow gmail as I need email access but want to block the web (giving the password to someone else) does anyone know how to accomplish this? Droidwall has a password but can be uninstalled making it useless.

I am going to look into a combination of applock (to not allow uninstalling) together with droidwall or Avast - but was wondering if anyone had any better ideas?

Thank you

Deals/Deal Requests / Pressure Washer

Can anyone recommend a good Pressure Washer. There was a woot today for $70 but its sold out. Would like to get one to clean grill, deck, and driveway. Never want to spend more money then I have to but would pay more for quality or features that are deemed worthwhile.


Tech Talk / real cost of switching from sprint to verizon
« on: June 20, 2011, 08:32:23 AM »
Hi - I have sprint here in Cleveland with many discounts. (27% employee and free incoming pick 5 and 500 bonus minutes) I have 4g which I tether with pdanet and using the 69.99 plan end up paying around $60 a month.
Now lately I keep on dropping calls - never worked well in my house -  and 4g has gotten spotty.
Trying to figure out what a similar plan with unlimited data would cost on Verizon. Also are you able to tether without any extra charges?

Deals/Deal Requests / Need a cheap video card
« on: December 27, 2010, 09:28:25 AM »
Hi - I just purchased a dell inspiron 560s (Inspiron 560 Slim-Tower) - and some games need a video card better than the intel 4500 that is on the mother board. Can anyone suggest a cheap video card? Do I need to get one with a low profile for this computer?
We are not talking about major gaming rather simple one like backyard sports

Deals/Deal Requests / Cheap software - is this legit?
« on: December 27, 2010, 09:24:01 AM »
Hi - was looking for a good price on Driver genius and came across this - there is a lot of cheap software but it looks fishy. Maybe he is selling cracked software. What do you think?

Tech Talk / Sprint upgrade
« on: December 19, 2010, 09:52:31 PM »
Saw this on a different forum was wondering the same thing myself - does anyone know the answer?

Question about upgrade through Wirefly or Bestbuy

    Hi - I am out of contract and eligible for a phone upgrade (waiting on the HTC Knight as the epic is to big for me). If I renew my contract with sprint (for either double minutes or $65 or maybe both) - will I still be able to get a phone at Bestbuy or Wirefly as a qualified upgrade - or will I only be able to get one through sprint?

I need a cheap desktop with flat screen for my kids. They play games and a little bit of typing. I see in Cosco a emachines with a screen for $399 but I have to pay taxes and the hd was a little small at 160gb. Did anyone notice anything cheaper or better in this price range.
