    Samsung Galaxy S8 phone wore out?

    Hi, I have a Galaxy S8 that I purchased in Sept. 2017 so not quite 4 years old. I don't want to replace because then I'll lose my my data plan to unlimited.

    S8 screen protector

    signal boosters for home?

    I've searched and read other threads regarding this but most are several years old. My situation is that we live in a rural area. We had satellite for internet service a few years back but it was expensive and the internet would crawl. When we got smartphones, I was educated about tethering...

    Family locator app?

    I did a search but mostly found very outdated threads. My husband is showing signs of early dementia and he rides his bicycle nearly everyday. We live in the country and he takes different routes. If something were to happen to him, I'd have no way of knowing where to look. Can anyone...
