    Whatever else anyone thinks of Samsung and their "not-quite-standard-Android" mentality, they've got the whole phone-change process down perfect.

    Yoga class makes me feel like a total stud, mostly because I'm about as flexible as a 2x4.
    "Design"? Possibly. "Intelligent"? Sure doesn't look like it from this angle.

    That Knox programming Samsung uses prevents the phone from being rooted. That took all the fun out of it. I rooted my S3 no problem. The S7 and now the S21 are nogo.

    That language has been frequent here for the last 2 days.
    We couldn't get Smart Switch to work to transfer her files to the Moto as it wanted to use the network to do it. Well, that didn't work.
    The Tech at Verizon suggested using the Moto transfer app. Haven't tried it yet.

    I haven't use them for a very long time, actually. I moved to symmetrical fiber about the first day it was available at the Buckingham property. I was literally on "port one" of the fiber tap on the pole. Haven't looked back. While that service is from Verizon, I don't use them for wireless...T-Mo got that business a few years ago as it was half the cost we had been paying to AtT. (the "corporate carrier" given my employer was a spinoff of a spinoff from ATT)

    One very good thing about losing Verizon, I don't get the nagging to subscribe to Visual Voicemail anymore. I could find no way to turn that off or delete it.
