What's next for a retired smartphone?

We had an "old" smartphone so my husband gave it to my son. He's only 8 but he is going to use it to text my husband since my husband travels a lot. It also has a camera he can use...

Non-scammy ringtones for iPhone?

I'm sick of my ringtones, and would like a new one. Ideally free, but pay is OK, too. I have an iPhone, and specifically I'd like Olivia Pope's ringtone. Googling this is a big ole mess, and the App store is no better. Every webpage and app look like they are designed specifically to brick the phone. Halp.

In your opinion, what's the best platform out there to develop a website for my photography business?

Amazon not loading...

I looked at the previous questions about not loading and have tried everything I can think of to try and get it to work. I have flushed my dns cache, deleted my browsing history and cookies, disabled prefetching, and even restarted my router. I even made sure I was using the most up to date chrome. What gives? I am fairly competent with computers, but might need things spelled out for me. Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!!

GoPro - Cheaper Alternative

Ok...So I want a GoPro but not the gopro price. No im not a extreme sports person nor am I a vlogger. I just want a small camera that I can take to festivals, float the river, out by the pool concerts, etc... and have unique views. I also like the time lapse photo options. What recommendations do you have? Im looking for something that will work with the gopro accessories and the gopro studio. I found one while i was researching what was out there now I cant seem to find it. Another option that would be cool is I know on the gopro is the ability to use an external mic.

Is it Creepy to Look Up Church Visitors on Facebook?

I am on the membership committee of my church, and once a week we get a report, complete with full names/emails if provided, of visitors who've signed in.

My question is: would you find it creepy if someone from a church you visited sent you a FB friend request afterwards? [more inside]

Checking .doc formatting between OSX/Windows

I'm trying to upload a word document with significant text formatting to a website that will only accept .doc and .docx. The problem is, I'm on a Mac and I know from experience that my formatting is likely to get horribly messed up if viewed in Windows. Is there some way to check how my document will look on a Windows machine without actually having access to Microsoft Word on a Windows machine?
