I think I lost my Verizon phone. I had the same phone for the past 3 years, and I know that I was due for a new one for the past year. I do not have insurance, not that I know of at least. So, how do I go about replacing this phone? I am so confused... Will I have to pay for the new phone? (I am from another country, so I still do not fully understand how the cell phone stuff works here.)
My 2004 Tiburon GT SE needs a clutch replacement but I can't decide if putting that much money into the car is worth it. How much can I expect to pay a mechanic to perform the work? I'm guessing in the $1K range but I don't know. And if so, does it make sense to put that money into car that's almost 8 years old? I bought it used a few years ago and still owe $5K on it, so dumping it isn't an option. It has only 54K miles and is otherwise in very good condition. How should I proceed?

My headlight in my 2003 Civic Hybrid went out. Before I knew it my father had purchased a new bulb and attempted to replace it. The report: he had to unplug the battery to reach the headlight apparatus (?!) so now my anti-theft radio will no longer play (because why would anyone want to steal a Honda if the dinky factory-installed radio doesn't work?!). Furthermore the light he got was the wrong kind so my headlight has not even been fixed. So I've looked up the details on resetting the radio and I need to take it to the dealership to get it reset. I am hoping this won't cost anything but, since my light hasn't been replaced, should I just get the headlight bulb replaced there as well? Has anyone bothered getting this done at the dealership or should I just attempt to replace the light myself after I've brought it back from getting the radio fixed?

I have a HP Mini 110 with a 160 GB HD running Ubuntu. I'm pretty happy with it, but I don't really need all that space (currently I'm filling a tiny portion of it) and would prefer a faster boot time. What kind of improvements in speed should I expect if I swap out the hard drive with an SSD? What is the level of expense and difficulty involved in the install? Would I be better off just getting a newer notebook with an SSD already installed? What is the best source for a suitable SSD?

Just finally got my Google Voice account! I have been using Skype for a long time, and now with google voice I am finally ready to get rid of the cell phone all together. BUT, can anyone recommend a good piece of hardware, (The iPod Touch comes to mind) that I can use "like" a cell phone, with minimal tweaking, where wifi is available. A netbook would work, but a little big, can you hook up a mic to any Palm or anything? Thanks everyone.
