Not sure why you say so. Go to Settings>Applications (or it's equivalent in the Amazon tablet) and find the account/Google/play store app and clear data in it
Will try that as soon as I get a second.

Thanks, it works, in store only as advertised, did not work on line, previous one worked on line.
Yup they changed that mid offer last time.

I'm a bit unclear on what your question is.

But why would you need to uninstall/reinstall the apps, you should be able to just clear the data for then.
Since it's an amazon Tablet, there's no google services. What I mean by that it's not a cell phone that has google accounts, here it's a fire tablet which has the play store and once you add an account there's no way to remove it. Yes really weird. Clearing the settings would mean clearing all the apps.

Hi I bought an iphone x on ebay that said "unlocked"

Tried to sign up with verizon and I am getting error that is carrier locked with xfinity mobile.

Xfinity is not letting us unlock it because they said we need an account number of owner.

Sometimes you can find these people on eBay who can get you an unlock code for a few dollars and solve the crisis and save you time.

So that's why I was just awarded 5 kin on a post that I made a few months ago :)  I was wondering.....
Lol I thought I had some quality posts that were worth the 5 kin I just received.

You're up at 3AM trying to book a flight that's probably not bookable and less than ideal because it's a great redemption...
To late to think now, tomorrow is another day. But would love to finish my itinerary, save me a seat..or rather seats.

How easy is it to change the hydraulic lift supports on the trunk door of an '09 Toyota Sienna?
As easy as finding a replacement, whether online (ebay, amazon) or an auto shop like autoZone which sells such parts and then taking a star key or a rachet set to unscrew the hydraulic lift on one side and then move on to the other side when your done.
 Would recommend you use a piece of wood of some sort or a ladder to support the liftgate (back trunk) from closing on you while doing the repair. "Safety first"
 The bolts might be a bit hard to loosen, was extremely snug when I tried to loosen them on my car. If a hand screw driver doesn't work take a rachet with the correct bit, and try not to strip the screw or else your going to need to drill it out which is not something you want to do if you don't have to.
 Or if above doesn't work try a breaker bar or a pipe over the rachet for more leverage and if that doesn't work try WD-40 or some lubricant and let it sit for a bit and then try and if still not a plain old torch to heat up the nut/bolt. Again be careful not to strip the bolt on the removal nor on the installation.

 Easy fix if you have the correct tools.
 Good luck.

 ETA: I see all you need is a flat head screw driver and pry it right off, really simple.
  Check out this video where he demastrates how to do it.

And a link for the product on Amazon.

Or walk into Auto zone and give them the year, make and model and they'll tell you exactly where to find a new pair.
  Here's some of them listed on their website.

Also seems to depend if you have a powered lift gate or a non powered lift gate.

Offer expired.
Are you sure your texting "SPRING" to 73277 ?

 Works fine on my end.
 I can get as many as you need. Here's 5 to start.
 Should work on your end for as many 5$ coupons as you need.

 A Lowe's coupon would be more useful.

I wonder if they will go to 12.5K per leg for US domestic awards like the rest of the market. They could also add in additional fuel surcharges and close in fees.
I hope not.
That would be the end of BA.

If he's right that's not that terrible.
Sure is.
   Just a few yrs ago it was from 4500 to 7500 and now to 9000 that's double from what it was and over time it will be creeping up and up which is not good.
  As is award avlbty stinks, and flights to Europe are killed with YQ.
 If only they do it for the better. Or a nechtigen toog?!

And there has to be some activity in the IB account before transferring.

Don't see any difference with the pops aside for the label on the package which says it's 300% vitamin C while they both have the same barcode on the pop.

Any ideas on what to do for a key that very often doesn't turn in the ignition. It's not the steering wheel lock.

I have to wiggle it around until it finally could turn. I could get a replacement lock cylinder on eBay for cheap but would rather not because then I'd need two keys one for door and one for ignition.

I saw a video where someone hits the key with a hammer to fix it on a different car.
Sounds like there is something wrong with the cylinder on the steering wheel,if the pins are messed up then the cylinder won't work properly.
 Did you try a 2nd key you have? Maybe it's the key and not the cylinder? 

 If you know what your doing try to reprogram a new key to use to start the car.(remember on most cars there's a transponder on the key and playing around with it might mess up the synchronization to start the vehicle.)
