I recently picked up a used Moto G that was a Verizon prepaid. I successfully activated it as a Tracfone BYOP Android phone. Between what I paid for the Phone, and the air time cards, and with the (new) ability to send texts and make calls on WiFi with Google Voice & Hangouts, 14 month's worth of use is going to run me about $100. There are also deals on the Moto E for Tracfone that are great bargains. Of course, it goes without saying that folks that are heavy talkers, testers, or that consume mid to high levels of data are better off with one of the flat rate monthly plans from someone besides Tracfone!

If you've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to upgrade your tablets with 64Gb external SD cards, this deal may be just what you've been waiting for.
This weekend only, Newegg is offering 2pcs of ADATA Premier 64GB microSDXC with adapters for $49.99 and free shipping.

Thanks guys!

I've been using ES File Manager almost since day one of being a tablet user.
Will install ES Task Manager and see how things go.

Le Pan General Discussions / suggestion for internal memory app ?
« on: September 22, 2014, 08:13:48 AM »
Lately my LePan S keeps giving me 'not enough memory' errors when attempting updates.
Even paring down the number of installed apps give me minimal relief.
I'm thinking that if there is an app that can help identify which apps are 'hogging' my internal memory,
my attempts to clean things up would be simplified.
Any suggestions from anyone?

Dell is, and always has been, best suited to corporate sales, with their accompanying service/warranty contracts. For Joe/Jane Consumer, not so much. For the average home consumer, the only 'good' Dell product purchase is a refurbished/off lease item. Dirt cheap because there are so many of them, and theoretically the best hardware, since they lasted long enough to survive the original lease term without croaking.

Too bad, IMHO that is one of the BEST features of the S....

Btw, I think the xtended warranty plans are different online than those offered in the stores. The online plans are the better deal, if memory serves me correctly

One thing I haven't seen anyone mention is the mount configuration for the SD card. Is it mounted like the LePan S, where the SD card is available as part of the onboard memory, or mounted as an additional sd mount like othe tablets, and can only be used for 'data' storage?

Has anyone purchased the protection plan from Walmart or Square deal?

I purchased the Walmart plan on my LePan S and my Element 40in TV. My LePan was actually repaired under the original 1 yr LePan warranty. Haven't needed to use the extended warranty yet.
On my Element, the extended warranty is actually better than the mfrs warranty (in home service vs. ship to repair center. I *should* see what the extended warranty will do for a recurring problem that started under the original warranty, but I did not want to have to send it in. The work around I came up with for the issue solves the problem adequately, so I've never bothered calling to see about getting it fixed.

You are braver than I am gastan!
After the battery issues that plagued my first LePan S, I would NEVER discharge a LePan tablet below 20%

I'm a big fan of DD-WRT and tomato firmware for ANY router that can run it. No brainer over factory firmware any day of the week, IMNSHO!

Too much money to be made in polo ponies and your own winery to try and make money in the increasingly competitive tablet market

Being some what of a tech head myself for most of my life, I developed a 'process' for dealing with retail employees at electronics stores.
I almost never browse, if I am in that store, it's because I am looking for something specific, and I am willing to  pay a premium price, because I want to make an immediate purchase instead  ordering online , usually at a substantially lower price, and waiting for delivery.
The first employee to approach and offer assistance gets asked a relatively easy tech question, that I already know the answer to. If he/she gets it wrong, I explain that I'm 'just looking' and move away. Any subsequent employees offering assistance get the same treatment.
If an employee does manage to get the *easy* question right, I then ask a moderately more difficult tech question. Failure to answer this one correctly also gets the 'just looking' response.
If an employee gets the first two questions correct,  he/she gets a final 'hard' question, one based on the extreme edge of my tech knowledge, but still one I know the answer to.
If, and only if, the employee gets that one right will I actually tell him/her what I am looking for and seek their assistance.
The reasoning for this is so simple it's obvious. If they know less than I do, asking their advice is a waste of my time amd theirs. Let them go attempt to help someone that knows less than they do. On the other hand, only some one that knows more than I do can actually benefit me in making my decision, so there is zero incentive to waste time with advice from anyone else.
I've been doing this for more years than I can recall, and I wouldn't shop for retail electronics any other way.

Not that my experiences are any true prediction, but this sounds a lot like some of the early problems my LePan S started having, and eventually got to the point that it would not power up/charge at all. Ultimately it had to go in and was replaced, since it was still under warranty.
