I live in fear of Microsoft now. I have a bare bones PC set-up for businesses purposes only. I have tried to eliminate as many unnecessary Microsoft products as possible,... Continue ReadingOneDrive, Cortana, Edge, Outlook, etc just to eliminate my update and privacy vulnerabilities. However, each time they force a "Windows 10" update on me I almost always lose a half day (minimum) fixing what the update has inadvertently disabled. After using "Windows 10" now for six months, I would rate it a DISASTER. In 2014 the new Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, had the temerity to layoff a huge part of its Quality Assurance department and we now see the results. For the longest time I resisted trying Apple's Macintosh computers and OS thinking MS was always superior. My experience with Windows 10 has changed that, my next computer will be a Macintosh. Microsoft Windows 10 is headed to the same destination as its Explorer web browser. All I can say is Good Riddance!!!

I called ATT who confirmed that I needed to go to where I purchased the phone but too late, the manager had gone home for the day. I am completely ticked off!!! My thing is it is a recall that is being paid for in full by Samsung what diff does it make where you bought it. Just Replace the Damn Phone.
