Bluetooth phone ringer?

My Secret Santa has a mobile phone that she's continually missing calls/texts on because she leaves it in her bag, and it drives her daft. Is there any sort of small wireless ringer/buzzer/light that will go off when the phone does? Small enough for a keychain, ideally.

VoIP over EVDO: Are we there yet??

VoIP over EVDO. If you've tried it (especially on Sprint's Rev A EVDO), how do you like it? I'd be using Skype, using it rarely, and only using it during calls -- not leaving it idling and using bandwidth. (With my current Sprint phone-as-modem setup on 1xRTT, I average 400-600ms pings -- i.e., too much latency for VoIP even if I had enough bandwidth. But on Sprint's now active EVDO Rev A, they claim latency of 100-150ms and upstream averaging 300-400k.) Yes, I know EVDO is not in the TOS. And I connect primarily from NYC in strong-signal areas.

Avaya IP Office for dummies?

I've been 'administering' my office's Avaya IP Office phone system for about a year and a half. I say 'administering' because I have no idea what I'm doing. I find the system unruly and it's driving me nuts! I'm searching for anyone who is familiar with IP Office and can talk to me about some issues like the naive pseudo-administrator I am. [more inside]

How can I setup my own voice mail system?

How can I set up my own voice mail service? I want to set up something where people buy/rent phone numbers from me and setup voice mail greetings for their friends to hear when they call. How do I go about procuring multiple phone numbers in multiple area codes like "gotVmail" and similar services do? How do I setup voice mail to email? Basically, I want to set up a service like "gotVmail" without 99% of the bells and whistles. Can I do this with asterisk? Any insight into this is well appreciated.

Will you please shut up so I can say something?

Frequently family members and friends on the phone speak in long, run on sentences without a natural pause. This gives me little chance to jump in and comment. So conversations are often one way. I know it probably stems from my wonderful listening skills and saying "yep," "uh-huh," and "hrm" all the time. But sometimes I would like to interject a thought or two into the conversation. I don't have this problem in meat space because facial expressions or gestures clue them in that I have something to say. So is there a good way that will get someone to pause over the phone?

Rescuing data from a crashed smartphone

My smartphone (SonyEricsson P910i) suddenly stopped working yesterday. A pop-up window appears on booting with the title "Information" and just one word - "corrupt". There's a box saying " continue" to click on and when I do so, it just hangs. Any idea what I can do with it? I badly need to rescue the data from it - lots of things (calendar, phone book, notes) that weren't backed up (I know, I know - but the backup program they supplied never worked properly. It always duplicated all the calendar / phonebook entries instead of backing them up.) Help!

Night and Weekend Minutes

Do they not kick in if your call starts before 9pm? I am a new Cingular subscriber (yeah, I know, the rollover minutes seduced me), and I was shocked to see a 58 minute call logged to my daytime minutes. The call had begun at 8:53 and I assumed that logically at 9:00 my nighttime minutes would kick in. Naturally, this is not the case and I ate up 1/7th of my total monthly anytime minutes on this one call. Do other wireless carriers keep you on daytime minutes for calls that begin before 9 and extend on past 9? [more inside]
