  1. Sorry I'm so late replying. Thanks for the advice Signman and Tx Redneck.
  2. Hi. I have a new Chewi 10 inch tablet that uses Android that works fine except that when I go to a favorite website and make a homescreen shortcut to it, it disappears when I turn the tablet off. It stays there until I turn it off, but shortcuts to sites like YouTube and others are still there when I turn it on. And shortcuts to texts I have stored on my tablet will disappear too but will reappear when I make another shortcut for the website shortcut that disappeared. What's causing this, I wonder? I have shortcuts on other tablets for the same site that disappears on this tablet, that stay there when I turn them off. Those are Samsungs. I guess if I factory reset my Chewi, it will fix it, but is there another way, so I don't have to reload all the things I've saved? Thanks for any help.
  3. I found out I can use the USB cord that came with the tablet and load videos over 4GB from my PC onto the internal memory, and since it has 64GB, that's really good, but I can't use the micro SD card for a video over 4GB? Oh well. I can always use the micro SD card to make more room for the internal memory. I think I'll keep it. Thanks a lot.
  4. Hi. I just got a Chuwi HI9 10.8 inch tablet from amazon.com because of the great 2056P resolution screen and the large amount of memory built in, 64GB, and a micro SD card slot that takes a card up to 128GB. I wanted it to watch movies and concert videos in HD but found out it only plays videos on the card that are under 4GB. I can format the micro SD card on my laptop to exFAT32 or NTFS and videos over 4GBs load and play fine on my laptop, but they wont load when it's formatted to FAT32 because of the size limitation that format has. When I turn on the tablet with the card formatted to exFAT32 or NTFS, I get a message saying the SD card is corrupted and I need to use the tablet to format it properly, of course erasing everything I put on it in the process. The card only works when formatted to FAT32 and under 4GB videos play fine but that's really limited. Not many movies or concert videos in HD are that short so I'm really disappointed. I have three weeks to send it back but would like to know if there's anything I can do to get around this and load over 4GB videos on the card and have the tablet play them. I read the product description on amazon and all the Q and A section but nowhere was it mentioned that with all that space, it can only play videos under 4GB. You'd think that would be mentioned. Is there anything I can do to fix this? I just get by on computers. (and tablets). Thanks in advance.
  5. This isn't a problem but it's something I'm wondering about. I got some Sennheiser HD 4.40 Bluetooth headphones that I like a lot, and it has the usual recorded voices that say "on" and "off" when you turn it on or off and "connected" or "disconnected" when the Bluetooth is connected or disconnected. The recorded voices are female, but the strange thing is that the voice saying on or off sounds Chinese, with a thick accent, sounding like "powa off" or "powa on", but the voice that says connected or disconnected is another female and sounds English, sounding a lot like Hermione in the Harry Potter movies. It's no big deal, but I'm just curious why one sounds Chinese and the other one sounds English. Anybody know? It's really strange to me.
  6. OK. I'll see if I can update them somehow. Thanks.
  7. Hi. I got some Bluedio UFO Bluetooth headphones I like and have been taking to a Subway sandwich shop near me and using them while I watch YouTube videos and do other things on my Nexus 10 tablet, using their free WiFi. I go there about every day. I've had the headphones since last October and they worked fine at the Subway until a couple of months ago, when videos would suddenly freeze and stay that way until I turned the WiFi connection on my tablet off and on. This happened every time I went, at least four of five times each visit. The sandwich shop uses Comcast. I tried the X-finity free trial that lasts an hour that you can can get once a month. I used it twice, and YouTube videos played perfectly with it. The Bluedios also cause freezing with my tablet when I'm home, using ATT U-Verse I've been using my Symphony Audio PX-5 Bluetooth earbuds at the Subway instead, and videos and everything else works perfectly with them. No freezing. I've used them around 12 hours over several visits and not one problem. It's just when I'd use my Bluedio headphones that I'd get the freezing problem. So why would I get freezing when I used the Bluedio Bluetooth headphones but not the Symphony Audio earbuds at the Subway, and why would the Bluedios work fine with the X-finity WiFi there with no problems but have freezing problems with the free Comcast WiFi there or my ATT WiFi at home? I tried using the Forget function for the Bluedios but still got the freezing problem when I connected again. They worked fine for two months then just started messing up. It's too late to send them back. They do seem to work OK with my laptop though. Any suggestions to fix this problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  8. Oops. You're right. I was in a hurry. Thanks for the info about Tmobile. I'll look into it.
  9. OK. I should have a cell phone anyway, I guess. I'll look into getting one and an Unlimited Data Plan. Thanks for the help, nigsy and TX. It's greatly appreciated.
  10. I should have mentioned I don't have a cell phone to use to tether my tablet to, just a landline at home. This page at att.com shows their mobile hotspots for sale and what I'd have to pay a month. https://www.att.com/global-search/search?q=mobile+hotspot&catField=Shop&group=false&secFilter=~Shop~Wireless~Wireless%20phones%20%26%20devices~ Now I find out that not every tablet is compatible with them and can't find out if my Nexus 10 would work with them.
  11. Hi. I go to the Subway sandwich shop near me a lot and like to use the free WiFi there, using my Nexus 10 tablet. It all worked fine for months, but the last two months, videos and other sites will freeze and stay frozen until I turn the WiFi connection in my tablet off and on. This will happen several times a visit. The owner says he needs a new router but a woman working there said that he said my tablet must be having problems. He uses Comcast but I tried the free X-finity trial connection I can get there that lasts an hour and you can get once a month and it always worked fine. No freezing. Plus, my tablet works fine with my home WiFi too. He says he has a lot of expenses with his two restaurants but will replace the router when he can. After two months I'm starting to doubt he will. I have ATT U-verse and should get ATT hotspots for free but don't have any near me. I found out that ATT sells mobile hotspots and a has monthly service charge that's really reasonable, like $6.00 or $10.00 a month. I think I'll get one of them, but am not sure about all the details. Would the mobile hotspot work good at the restaurant, and let me see videos and do all the other things I want to do on the net without freezing over and over? And how many hours a day would I get for the prices I mentioned? How many hours a month am I allowed before I get charged extra? I tried to find out all this at the ATT site but couldn't find out. How long do mobile hotspots work before being needing to be recharged? Thanks in advance for any help.
