I guess there is no reason why this would not have worked, but I can confirm that the Surface RT USB port can charge a cell phone (Lumia 900) while running on battery. Nice when you need it.
I suppose it could charge/power any USB device.
Simply register your phone number(s) and email at www.bestbuy.com/giftcardreserve by this Saturday (2-9-2013). When you purchase your phone at Best Buy anytime in the year 2013 you will automatically receive a $50 Best Buy gift card applicable towards the cost of your phone or anything else at Best Buy. You can do this with 5 phone numbers, so it could save you up to $250.
Full Disclosure: I work for Best Buy, but I am posting this as a member of the Surface Geeks community because I feel that it is a fantastic deal. If this is not the appropriate place for this, let me know and I will take it down.
I have a problem with my 920. Yeah I know I should update but that's another story.
The notifications for Cortana about when to leave seems to work great for me except my notification to leave for work.
I have a Calendar entry set for 6 am - 3 am with my work address.
My phone is configured to have quiet hours from 9 pm - 3:30 pm.
I get a notification but it seems to be consistently 1 hr late.
So I setup an additional entry and move it back 1 hr. It still notifies me at the same time
Any ideas (besides get a new phone)?
I have Windows Phone 8.1 installed.
We only have 2 cell phones currently in our house that are off contract with Verizon.
I have been looking at the Verizon Edge program especially after reading this blog post by Kyle Wilcox.
I have a few questions (of course).
1. I currently get a corporate discount. Does this apply to the Edge program? What portion gets discounted?
2. Once you have paid off the phone (or phones) in the Edge program are you still getting the per line discount? Today I am off contract but I pay the same price as if I was paying for subsidized phone.
I am trying to see the downside to the Edge program. If I go with a standard subsidized plan I am paying an additional $300 vs the same time period with Edge. But after the 2 years it appears the discounted lines of the Edge program will keep saving me more money than the subsidized programs.
