Customer Question
I have several phones...

I have several phones but in several moves they have been separated from their holders. How do I reactivate them? And does it matter which cradle is used for a particular phone? Peter Mirkovich.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your smartphone?

Where do I find this information?

Technician's Assistant: The Smartphone Technician will be able to walk you through that. How long has this been going on with your smartphone? What have you tried so far?

About two vears.. the phones have. Sitting idle for that time..I have tried nothing so far. These phones have just been unpacked.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Smartphone Expert to know before I connect you?

Nothing.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
