Hello, is this you? Yes it's me. Oh, sorry, I was looking for a different you. With your same number. And first name.

Is someone spoofing my cell phone number (and first name)? If so, why? And does this have any impact on my cell phone contract? [more inside]

Is there a cheap way to use data on my iPhone in Spain?

I'm going to Spain for a bit and want, if possible, to get a pay-as-you-go Spainish sim card for my (unlocked) iPhone that will allow me to use data at a reasonable price. Does anyone know if such a product exists in Spain? I don't speak Spanish so bonus points if it's possible to buy one over the internet and have it shipped to me in the UK (though I know that's unlikely)... [more inside]

Want to buy/send a cell phone US to EU

A friend lost her phone (ordinary cell, not smart) in Europe (Greece) and is distraught (has no money to speak of). I told her I'd send her one of my old ones, but the chances of getting it to work there (and finding charger) are slim, I suppose. I want to buy a new one and just send over and not worry. However, I don't want her to know it's "new." She'd freak. So. What's the easiest, not terribly expensive, non U.S.-centric option? Any other insight greatly appreciated. (I'm obviously not cell phone-savvy and yes, I googled, but got flummoxed). many thanks.

We need help choosing a smartphone/mobile and provider

So, apparently I need to get a smartphone. I'm not 100% sure that I really "need" to, but browsing the web on the tiny screen of my current phone is not a fun experience.

Cellphone to laptop?

My lady has AT&T cellular with internet capability. She also has a very nice laptop, thanks to me. She live in remote Idaho and has no internet options other than dialup. Can she use her phone to power her laptop? I'm good with computers but know nothing about cellphones. Can this be done? What connectors, etc might she need? Basic, decent speed web access would be all she needs. As she has nothing now to her laptop, I don't think that download limits would be a problem. Just typical surfing with video and audio. Can she port the phone access to a wireless connection to her laptop? If you come up with a reasonable solution, I will probably get laid. Hah! No, I actually just love her and would like to expand her world.

Thes best way to merge multiple phone numbers and possibly use Google voice?

My work is providing me a Blackberry with voice plan that I'm expected to carry during waking hours and I don't want to carry multiple phones or maintain my $50+/month plan; I'm trying to figure out the best way to merge the two. Oh, and one other catch- I'd like to set up Google Voice for work and would really like to use the additional features that come with getting a Google Voice phone number. [more inside]

Carrying a kid and an iPhone sover hardwood floors is a bad idea, because you never know when you might have to choose which one to drop

My iPhone has a cracked LCD, and I'm considering sending it to Mission repair, who I found via this ask. Does anyone else have any experiences with them to share before I send away my phone? Are there any steps I should take to make data safe, or am I just being paranoid there? Are there any alternatives I should consider in the Seattle area? Note that the phone is not under warranty.

What free services exist out there that automatically send a text message alerting you to something or another?

Ever since I was pointed towards Umbrella Today I've yet to be caught out in the rain without an umbrella. I'd quite like to find other free services that automatically send a text message alert.

Did I mess up my phone's reception?

Could I have messed up my cellphone's reception when I replaced its casing? I recently replaced the casing on my phone: taking my phone apart, unscrewing lots of things, then putting the phone into a new case. I just followed online instructions; I don't have a lot of experience with these sorts of things. I can't remember when it started, but my phone seems to say "Emergency Calls Only" or "No Carrier" quite regularly now, and I never noticed it doing this in the past. Is there something I can do to fix it? [more inside]

How reliable are Virgin Mobile and their term plans?

Is Virgin Mobile worthwhile for their non-pay-as-you-go phone plans? They've got very competitive prices but I've heard they're terrible for their pay-as-you-go plans. Does anyone have any experience with their term plans? Are they just as bad? The main thing I've heard is their customer service being the worst and that the coverage isn't great. Any thoughts?

Help a cellphone novice buy a cellphone

Hoping the hive mind can help me with a cellphone solution. I know nothing about cellphones and in years past have relied on the internet and a landline for my phone needs. I've used a combination of Google Voice (GrandCentral formerly), Vonage, and a cheap pay-as-you-go cellphone. I am now in a nomadic situation (US) where I do not have a reliable landline nor internet for the foreseeable future. It's time to get a real cellphone. [more inside]

What does this High Pitched Noise mean? Am I a Dog?

I just bought a charger for my cellphone at Target. It's not the special manufacturer's brand, but an after market one that costs half of what the Sprint store chargers cost. When I plugged it into the wall, it started making a high pitched noise. I haven't plugged the other end of the charger into my phone for fear of ruining it. Is this normal? Is my charger bad? Thanks.

I'm looking for an affordable mobile plan that will let me surf the web and use Google maps during a short trip to Canada.

I'm going to Vancouver next month. My Sprint phone won't be of any use to me there. When I went to Toronto last year, I was able to make exorbitantly expensive phone calls and I wasn't able to access the internet or use google maps. I'd like to do all of those things economically. I still have my old Treo 75?wx. Perhaps that could be of some use? Thank you.
