RE: Tracfone on iPhone 4

Glad I could help, even use my iPhone for email because it is faster and works better. Posting this from the phone

Tracfone on iPhone 4

My 6 month old ZTE screen shuts of after I dial a number. Wont come back until the other end hangs up or if I hit the power button then it hangs up. Cant press 1 for English!!! Tracfone has a BYOP program for iPhone 4. I purchase one on ebay for less than $70, looks like new and works. Here is what I went through to activate it. Tried the web site but going through the process did not work because it took you straight to air cards to buy which I did not use. Googled Tracfone for BYOP. About the third option down was a BYOB site which was much different that from the original Trac site. Bought the access card for $10. Put in my MEID number on both phones and what ever data they wanted. Clicked enter, took me to a page that said the sorry could not complete transaction call CS. Trouble is my ZTE phone was deactivated! Could not call! Thought I lost my 50 year old phone number because they can only transfer active numbers! Not happy. Drove 6 mile round trip to where my wife was to get her phone. Went home and called CS. First person said it showed my iPhone was working, I said all I got was three beebs. Gave me a *xxxxx number to enter into iPhone. Worked! But could call out but incoming calls would not ring and go to straight to call answering service. Gave me a Iphone special CS. Gave me a #xx number to enter. Worked! All works except my Tracphone message saying I have the correct phone minutes left but says I have over a million texts left and hardly any data, which I hardly use. The web site is correct. Pretty happy as it really didnt take long to correct and the iPhone is TONS better than the ZTE and easier to navagate. Oh, got to get my wife one now and do the whole process again! Hope it works right off the web site to activate it.

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

Even if your dog cant deal in a park I can still see how it would omit a lot of dog complaints I read on this forum. The park we are in has NO place to walk dogs. You have to go along the highway or cross the street to a gazillion acres of dessert. Now there are complaints because folks are seeing poop in the dessert. Its inhabited by tons of coyotes, raccoons, bighorn sheep, bobcats, mountain lions and what ever roams the dessert. At least with a 2 acre dog park you sure cant complain about a dog pooping in them.

RE: Foggy Dual Pane Windows

A friend has a DVR with duals. Had to replace the rear twice. Guy that replaced it said he wouldn't own RV dual windows. Single is going in if another fogs up. Need to start a post "I love my single pane windows" that ought to be entertaining for a couple of weeks LOL

RE: I'm locked out...

That's weird that the key won't work. Dealer could have given the wrong key. They may have the right one

RE: Shaving?

I put a mirror in the shower. when washing my hair I put conditioner on my beard also. I use Gillette Good News. Dozen razors for less than $6 if I remember. Each one lasts 2-3 weeks shaving every day. Closest easiest shave I ever had, took me 60 years to figure it out.

RE: Ordered 5th wheel delima

Wait. But, it probably would not take much time for the factory to swap the axles and put in a fan. With there crew bet it would take less than an hour. Ask if they would.

RE: Canadian taking a boat to Lake Havasu

Oh, if you are going to do the a Colo river, holiday or long week end are not good for us slow boaters. Gets pretty wild out there at times

RE: Kevin Harvick wins Sprint Cup championship !

Deep pockets don't always work. Ask Hendricks. The Hendrick drivers had the most bad luck in the chase of all the teams and deep pockets can't fix that. Let's factor in a few bad calls on final restarts.

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

Did any one actually click on the link and look at the pictures. Twice as nice as our human parks.

RE: Canadian taking a boat to Lake Havasu

Doing basically the same thing. Have 90 days to use it with your "states" registration number. My problem is we are leaving the first of December and they haven't sent my regestration renewal form. Local registration dept won't give me a new tag without it. This is the first time for us bringing a boat so I hope they will at least forward my renewal to AZ. I can at least show a print out of my intentions when I renew on line if I get stopped, which is very likely on the Colo river.

RE: Whatever Happened to Kipor Generators?

I had a ke3500 for about 7 years. Sold it for what I paid for it. Pretty good resale value I would say. Darn good gen.

RE: Dental Insurance ?? -- Help/Guidance needed

Doc wanted to give me a shingles shot. Asked if it was covered by Medicare. They called Medicare and the line was busy. Told me they were 99% sure it was. Got shot and Medicare denied it. Guess who paid the $180? Clue. It wasn't the doctor.

RE: Which Dish for DTV With Genie?

Dave, I have a slimline 3 that was pretty cheap. Bet if you saw a service truck in the area they would give you a good deal on one. As far as cumbersome, I just use a cordless drill with a socket on it and remove the LNB arm. Takes seconds and is easy to store.

RE: A solution to watch movies on TV with no DVD or wifi needed

Sorry for the confusion! This software is perfectly LEGAL, I paid for it, it has GREAT reviews online. I stream movies onto my computer using high speed internet then copy and paste to a USB flash drive to watch on my USB-enabled TV in our RV. If anyone thinks this is not legal, go to the company's website and read about it. Also research the reviews online. Every movie I copy has my email address and that I own LEGALLY paid for software to make a copy for my personal use. Sorry you misunderstood, I was trying to be helpful to the community. Guess I'll keep my great discoveries to myself from now on. :-( That's the Internet for you. I sometime I make a post thinking I was being helpful and end up being the chump. Hard to show true intintions on the keyboard with out making your post two pages long, and then you get criticized at that. Still fun contributing though.
