Tech Talk / Re: REVIVE THE FLIP PHONE

I think sprint will stop allowing 3g phones.
I was trying to activate a 3g phone on tello and they rejected it. Saying that it’s a 3g phone and sprint does not allow it anymore on their network
Iirc a few months ago they sent me an email asking the lines that my current 3g phone on tello I have will stay fine but I can't do a new activation ... So make sure I don't deactivate the current one...

Can I ask the obvious question? Am I missing something? If they are brazen enough, or rather stupid enough, to return to the same development every Friday night, the Lakewood police can't set up some hidden cops somewhere there to catch them in the act? I mean, they came twice to the same house in the same night and they were seen both times.
Supposedly the sheriff and cops were supposed to be patrolling/drones..  I heard the only time they were spotted was at 9pm (completely useless) although noone would know if they came in middle of the night...

They hit Oak & Vine for 3 weeks in a row.. they clearly don't care to come back..

What's shocking is it's been going on all over Lakewood for months... With only one arrest, which turned out to not even have any connection iiuc...

Reports are that the coupons that were earned early were faulty.
What people are doing is scanning the new coupons and put in the old in the slot
The code is faulty? I was under the impression their system was messed up and just not ready to accept the coupon? By self checkout is was scanning it as if it was an item.. but self checkout has a pretty low working rate with these coupons...

Tech Talk / Re: no cell phone service in basement

The one I just got from T-Mobile was 2 pieces, one placed by the window and one in the room ,or rather on another floor in a room, as far apart in the home they suggested, and all I did was plug then into the outlet and that's about it.
   Sometimes they recommend you to call the carrier and register the phone with the booster.
The one I got from T-Mobile barely worked, for voice it helped a drop but data almost not at all.. (iirc it showed 4g lte, but the speeds were horrible)
That's the way the one I think I should get works. WeBoost Home 4G LTE Desktop Cell Phone Signal Booster Kit #470101
But I have until after YomTov to get it set up, so I'll wait a bit to see if anyone has more solid information about this.

My father has an iphone 5 with PagePlus service. (verizon)
He lives in an old apartment building.
He has a signal near the windows, but really bad service everywhere else.

I want to get a cell phone signal booster.
I can't put an antenna on the roof and string down a cable to his apartment.
He doesn't have an internet box - he uses Optimum wifi. (He has a booster by his window to catch the signal and strengthen it to reach his laptop. )

I need something that goes by the window, but doesn't need to be plugged into a cable box.

Is there such a thing?

Yes, they don't work as well as the ones you attach to a router but you can get one. Usually the carrier gives them for free, in this case you can buy one from eBay or something
It usually comes with two units One you put where the signal is good and second where it  needs a boost

I thought I remember hearing last time around that the rain insurance alone was a few hundred k.. which would only make sense if the rental was in the range of $4m..  just making a quick cheshbon I'd imagine there's well over 1000 MetLife employees at the event.. prob 7-8 hours of work prior, during & post... Even at minimum wage that's already 70-80k.. they're likely union workers which prob triples whatever wage they should really be paid.. & thats before anything else..

Im willing to pay for minyan in copenhagen  on oct 23 between 1-5pm. Anyone interested in joining?
I doubt at that time but iirc the shul does have some minyanim even during the week..
 the chabad rabbi there is really nice & helpful.. unlikely that he can help with this but worth a try..

Here's my opinions of the few that I've tried with links. Rated on a (lowest)1-10(highest) scale for the following categories:
 A: Ease of access. Easy to see surveys/groups and answer the questions for them...
B: Incentives. On average, are you getting $40 or $200...
C: Amount of surveys/groups available to take part...

Apps
•Focus Point Global. EoA 8. Incentives 6. Amount available 8.
It appears that they are the one of the leaders in this sector and therefore have a nice app as well as tons of surveys. However being one of the leaders, it doesn't offer the highest pay, but still not bad.
Example https://ibb.co/PDhZVNP
•Mindswarms EoA 9. Incentives 2. Amount available 2.
The app is extremely clean and easy to use. However the studies are few and far between, and I have never received a follow-up on any of them. Perhaps this has to do with the fact that they require a short video of yourself when signing up . The incentives are pretty low overall.

Websites
• Schliesinger Group EoA 6. Incentives 8. Amount available 7.
This is by far the best over I've signed up to. The sign up process is a bit more daunting than the rest. You must send in a pic of your ID to prove you're not gaming the system with multiple accounts (now, where would anyone ever get that outlandish idea). The website on which you answer the initial questions to determine your eligibility for specific surveys is pretty dated but still does the job. As far as incentives go, the lowest I've ever been offered was $100 with the average being $150. Your receive emails with available surveys and if you qualify will receive a phone call following up relatively quickly to confirm your answers.
Example https://ibb.co/n3JM183

•20|20 Panel EoA 6. Incentives 5. Amount available ??
This seemed to be pretty good, but since completing my first study with them I've only received one more study offer.
Example https://ibb.co/nPHpfbW

• Fieldwork EoA 4. Incentives 4. Amount available 3.
This company only does in person, so I've never done one before.
Example https://ibb.co/8N8wXZf

Again, This is all just my personal opinion and experience.
How long are these surveys?
