iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7, Blackberry, or feature phones.
Nuris has an Alcatel phone and her mom is getting weird texts. Leo says that it sounds like someone else is texting her, and it could easily be someone texting the wrong number. Leo has a hunch that T-Mobile has crossed a few wires, and they'll need to fix it.
Paul recently bought an iPhone and the passcode has suddenly stopped working. Leo says that a full restore can solve the issue. He can connect it to a computer and then go into iTunes. But he may need to go into something called "DFU mode." This is a more serious reset of the phone. Paul should search YouTube for DFU and see how it's done.
Mark has a bunch of old phones, including one from Cingular which has a very important video clip on it. How can he get it off? Could he just hold up another phone and playback and recapture it? Leo says it won't be ideal, but it's a good stopgap measure. The Bluetooth standard is so old on that phone that it can't pair with anything. It wouldn't help anyway, since it didn't support Bluetooth back then.
Gail wants to know how many paired devices she can use with her Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Leo says there is a limit and if she wants to start over, she can reset it. Leo also says to check if the Bluetooth has been disabled. She could try resetting it, and restart the phone as well.
Pete found an iPhone on the road and it's locked. How can he track down the owner and get it back to them? Leo says that there really isn't much he can do other than file a 'found phone' report. He could interact with Siri and see if he can get information from her. In fact, he can use Siri to return it, according to 9to5Mac. But if Siri has been disabled, there really isn't a lot he can do. He could also contact Apple. Maybe they can help.
Marsha would like to sync Outlook with Google Calendar so she can sync with her Android phone. Leo says that Google used to have AppSync, but they discontinued it. There are third party apps Marsha could use though:
Vlad has a Samsung Galaxy S4 and he wants to know if there's a hardware accessory that will allow him to listen to podcasts in his car and skip commercials. Leo says that is an interesting idea. Android for Cars will have it, but that's not ready yet. So no, there's nothing out there just yet specifically for that.
James' wife is going to China in a few weeks and he wants to know if there's anything new over there that isn't over here that she can pick up for him. Leo says that while manufacturing is mostly in China, a lot of the innovation still happens in the US. But Xiaomi makes some amazing phones that aren't available here in the US. There's also a lot of clones of iPhones and other devices there that look like iPhones, but are really Android phones that have been skinned to look like iOS.
