Actually, it’s quite nice… I can only receive phone calls and texts and emails, but can’t return any voicemails. Not the worst thing that could happen… but still annoying. Especially when your tennis game gets rained out and you need to call the ladies to tell them not to make the drive over.
So, what can you do to fix it?
First power down your phone. Do this by pressing and holding the power button and slide to power off. Wait 10 seconds or so, then press and hold the power button again and bring it back to life.
For me – #1 just worked. Yay! I tried to make my call again and it worked just fine. My friend answered and I let her know that tennis was, in fact, rained out. =(
If #1 doesn’t work for you like it did for me – #2 would be to check and make sure Airplane Mode is, in fact, Off. Go to Settings > Airplane Mode > Off.
If #2 doesn’t work make sure your Do Not Disturb settings are Off too. Go to Settings > Do Not Disturb. And make sure the circle is grey.
As for your MIA Contacts:
Go to Settings
Tap Accounts & Passwords
Tap each email account
Make sure each Contact Address Book is Green (ON)
If Contacts are in fact Green and ON >
Go to the Contacts app >
Tap Groups >
Is your desired address book checked? (see below)
If your address book is Checked and your contacts are still MIA >
Then you MUST Log into each address book and move your contacts to the Cloud.
sign in with your outlook email account (this could be your email address too )
you will arrive at your outlook email
then > click on the 9 little boxes in the upper left corner next to Outlook
click on New Blank Document+ or Open an Existing Document to work on
type and or edit your Text
when finished > File Menu > Save As > Save a Copy to OneDrive
at the top next to document name > click Share+
fill in To: recipients email address, fill in subject > type your message
** click “recipients can edit”
choose if recipients need to be signed in with their Microsoft account?
YOU > return to OneDrive
click the document
click edit document
File > Save As > Save As > Save > “lesson 3 with corrections” > Saveto a Folder or just Save it > Name Document > Save Button
Click Share+ (at top blue bar) > fill in To: email address of person who needs to see the document
click on “Recipients can edit” ** see notes below ** > don’t need Outlook account > Share
That person signs into their Email > clicks on Email to open
Recipient now has the choice to download document or edit it at Word Online
If Editing Document at Word Online > Must first click on Edit Document
(on top Blue Bar) > have Choice to edit in Word or edit in Browser
Word Online = allows Both People to edit and work on the same document at same time – you will see each other’snames in the upper right corner and when the other is typing you will see their marks in real timetoo
Everybody makes their changes > and everyone can then Save the File by clicking on File > Save As > Save As > Save when finished to Save document
**You can also download document and work on Word (on your computer or device)at any time
** YOU MUST FEEL COMFORTABLE WORKING WITH SEVERAL OPEN TABS IN YOUR WEB BROWSER AND REMEMBER WHERE YOU ARE ** The Web Browser is the first two rows on top of the Browser Window ** Word Online begins with the Blue Bar and the 9 little white boxes in the upper left corner on the third row ** And the Menu Bar is the fourth row just below the Blue Row **
** your Recipient has a choice to make corrections at Word Online or Word on their Computer **
if you want the recipient to be able to make corrections at Word Online = select Recipients need to sign in with a Microsoft account
if you want the recipient to retrieve document in their email inbox and be able to download the document and work on it on their computer at Word (not online) = select Recipients don’t need a Microsoft account
When the Document is Shared = It Can be found in OneDrive Shared Folder (Microsoft’s Cloud)
When the Document is Emailed = It’s in the Recipients Mailbox
This scenario also works for Excel Online and PowerPoint Online too.
Just in case you didn’t know, yet – Google has a brand-new App called Backup and Sync – which basically backs up your entire computer into Google Drive (Google’s Cloud) just like you would with a Terabyte or Apple’s Time Machine.
All you need to use is a Google account > You don’t need a Gmail email address.
Several of my students’, understandably so were quite freaked out and cut out the article and gave it to me in class. After reading it and giving the article some thought, it is my hope that you find what I have to say helpful and quell your fears.
