Wireless World Of Ramsey

"For All Your Wireless Needs"

Welcome to my website

  Located at 88 East Main Street, in lovely downtown Ramsey, New Jersey is an authorized Dealer for AT&T Wireless Services. They have been in the wireless business since 1999; but their cumulative wireless experience totals over 40 years. This type of experience can only benefit their customer base. Since day # 1, the owner and staff have tried to steer clear of the stereotypical wireless dealership mentality. It has been their goal to be more of a consultant; than a salesperson. They treat “word of mouth” or “referral” business as their driving force.

A Virginia Beach Circuit Court judge ruled that law enforcement officials can compel you to unlock your smartphone with a fingerprint, but that they can’t force you to enter in your passcode or password to unlock your device. Judge Steven Frucci says that obtaining a fingerprint is like obtaining a DNA sample or a physical key, things that would have to be surrendered in an investigation anyways. Passcodes would be considered knowledge, and not a physical object, so they deserve more protection under the law.

The ruling arose from a case surrounding Emergency Medical Services tech David Baust, who was charged for strangling his girlfriend. The attorney for Baust tried to stop authorities from gaining access to his phone, where he may have stored video footage of the alleged crime.

Do you secure your phone with a fingerprint ID? What do you think of the ruling? Will you switch back to using a PIN?

Microsoft has announced a new version of Skype for the iPhone that adds a number of new features and improvements, including a way to save or delete photos in its chat UI.

Here’s what will be included in the 5.7 update, which should be available from iTunes sometime today:

  • Save and delete photo – If you want to save a memorable photo to your camera roll or delete a sent photo from a chat, simply press and hold the image and the options will appear.
  • Faster chat load time – Now when you receive a notification and tap it to open the app, the message will be there waiting for you without any delays.
  • Avatars for all chat – You can now see all avatars for groups and people, and if they’re changed on other platforms, they’ll update in the app too so you always have the latest showing.
  • People list UI improvements – In 5.7, we’ve made it easier to find the people list search and filter options, so you can quickly and easily find the person you want to chat with and get started.

How often do you use Skype on your iPhone?

CurrentC could switch to NFC tech in the future

Posted by On October - 29 - 2014
Featured Image

It looks like Apple Pay and Google Wallet rival CurrentC, which is backed by some of the largest leading retailers, is looking into NFC for the future. In its current implementation, CurrentC converts banking information into a scannable QR code for payment at the register, and the group said that it could change and quickly pivot to an NFC-based payment system if the market demands it.

The head of CurrentC’s parent group, Dekkers Davison, said in a virtual press conference:

We’re agnostic about technology. We started with QR code-based technology that allows us to go to market broadly. If we need, we can pivot to NFC.

News of the change to NFC follows news that user email addresses may have been hacked and clarification from CurrentC saying that it would allow its partner members to accept competing mobile wallets without any penalties.

Thanks to Jeb for the tip.

Every week Apple adds tons of new media content on iTunes — music, books, movies and more. It’s impossible to keep up with all of it, but it’s not impossible to pick out the very best. Here they are! This week we’ve got new J-Pop music with a vampire theme, Saw, Treehouse of Horror, and new work from cyberpunk author William Gibson!


Bloodsuckers – Vamps

OK, it’s Halloween this week, so I had to throw something in here that was at least thematically appropriate. I recognize Japanese rock, or J-Rock, isn’t for everyone, but Vamps is positive J-Rock royalty: Hyde, vocalist of L’Arc-en-Ciel, and K.A.Z, guitarist of Oblivion Dust. Bloodsuckers is a very different sound, though: More of a poppy commercial sheen. They sell the sexy urban vampire mythology in 13 tracks, sung in English. A good starting point for anyone who’s been interested in J-Rock but have found it impenetrable up until now.

Backspace Unwind – Lamb

Andy Barlow and Lou Rhodes released their sixth album together a few weeks ago; Backspace Unwind doesn’t fall too far from the formula they’ve established. Lamb falls within the electronic music genre, with influences from drum and bass, trip hop and jazz solidly in place. Rhodes’ soulful vocals are offset by Barlow’s haunting arrangements — too downtempo to be club-friendly, but great mood music that’s not just ambient background noise. Four of the tracks include string arrangements, which add some nice flair. If you liked Portishead back in the day, there’s a lot to enjoy on this new album.

Saw: The Complete Movie Collection

Looking for something creepy to watch on Halloween? How about Saw: The Complete Movie Collection? All Seven saw movies from the original all the way through to the Final Chapter, here, budget-priced at $ 29.99. A terminally ill psychopath is intent on teach his victims the value of life by trapping them in a game of survival. Brutal, gory fun featuring Jigsaw, one of the most memorable characters in slasher film history.

22 Jump Street

I’ll admit that when I heard they were rebooting 21 Jump Street as a buddy comedy I had my doubts, but those doubts were allayed by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum’s hilarious depictions of two bumbling undercover cops back in high school. 22 Jump Street finds our ridiculous heroes on an undercover job in college, instead. Hill and Tatum are a great bromance, and a fun cast of supporting characters including Peter Stormare, Ice Cube, Jillian Bell and others make this a hilarious romp.

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror Collections

Among my very favorite episodes of The Simpsons are the annual Treehouse of Horror episodes, which always air around Halloween and often send up pop culture and current events with the usual Simpsons flair. Now the Treehouse episodes have been gathered into value-priced collections, each with six episodes, all of which are worth getting. If you’re looking for something Halloween-themed that’s not quite as horrifying as Saw, here’s a great choice!

Treehouse of Horror Collection I – $ 6.99 – Download now Treehouse of Horror Collection II – $ 6.99 – Download now Treehouse of Horror Collection III – $ 6.99 – Download now

The Peripheral – William Gibson

William Gibson, cyberpunk author behind the seminal Neuromancer is back, this time with The Peripheral, a near-future story set in the world after “the jackpot,” an economic and ecological collapse. Gamer Flynne Fisher is helping her brother a new game when she witnesses what she thinks is a gruesome murder. What happens next has ramifications for Flynne and humanity as Gibson weaves together a time-traveling tale as only he can.

There are my media picks for this week. What have you found in iTunes that you love? Let me know in the comments.

Newly-leaked Microsoft presentation documents show that the company is planning to launch Office 16 for Mac sometime in the first half of 2015 and that it wants to give those users software features that will be similar to the ones found on the Windows version.

The leaked presentation, posted on the Chinese language site CNBeta, shows that Office 16 for Mac programs will gain features previously reserved for Windows users, such as a presentation view for PowerPoint. Office 16 for Mac will also have better integration with Microsoft’s cloud services such as OneDrive. A beta version of Office 16 for Mac could be launched by the end of 2014, if these documents are accurate. It’s likely that Microsoft will give Mac owners a way to access the new version via an Office 365 subscription, which starts at $ 6.99.

While Microsoft has not launched a major new version of Office for the Mac since 2010, it did launch full versions of Office apps for the iPad in March. Is Microsoft taking too long to launch a new Office for Mac owners?

Apple responds to Apple Pay being shut out from CVS, Rite Aid

Posted by BMetts On October - 28 - 2014
Featured Image

After the debacle of CVS and Rite Aid turning off NFC in their payment terminals inside stores and thus shutting out Apple Pay on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus customers from mobile payments, Apple had gone on record to issue a response, stating that so far customers and merchants who support Apple Pay are happy with the service.

CVS, which is a member of another mobile payment consortium called CurrentC, said:

At this time CVS/pharmacy cannot accept Apple Pay or other mobile payments that use NFC technology. We are in the process of evaluating mobile payment options for our customers.

In a statement to Business Insider, Apple said:

The feedback we are getting from customers and retailers about Apple Pay is overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic. We are working to get as many merchants as possible to support this convenient, secure and private payment option for consumers. Many retailers have already seen the benefits and are delighting their customers at over 220,000 locations.

Apple’s statement is similar to what it had said when it gave an update to Apple Pay’s status at the iPad launch keynote recently.

Another large retailer, WalMart, which does not support NFC or Apple Pay at this time, is also part of the competing CurrentC consortium as Rite Aid and CVS, offered the following explanation:

There are certainly a lot of compelling technologies being developed, which is great for the mobile-commerce industry as a whole. Ultimately, what matters is that consumers have a payment option that is widely accepted, secure and developed with their best interests in mind. MCX member merchants already collectively serve a majority of Americans every day. MCX’s members believe merchants are in the best position to provide a mobile solution because of their deep insights into their customers’ shopping and buying experiences.

iPad mini 3 review

Posted by BMetts On October - 27 - 2014
Featured Image

The iPad mini didn’t get the same update as its bigger brother, iPad Air this year. There’s no laminated display with antiglare coating, and there’s no monstrous Apple A8X chipset. Internally, that which the iPad mini 2 had, the iPad mini 3 mirrors. So what do you get with Apple’s newest version of its smallest iPad? A 7.9-inch high-resolution window into the internet and apps, made even more convenient thanks to the addition of Touch ID and Apple Pay, a slightly-more-fashionable model thanks to an optional gold finish, and more affordable pricing thanks to a reduction in price for the 64GB and 128GB models.

It’s still supremely portable, and powerful enough for almost everyone. But two years after launch, and one year after Retina, is the iPad mini 3 enough?

Read our review of the iPad mini 3 to find out.

T-Mobile CEO John Legere has taken to Twitter to explain how the recently announced Apple SIM works in the new iPad Mini 3 and iPad Air 2, highlighting how competitors continue to make it difficult for customers to switch operators.

The Apple SIM replaces the traditional SIM consumers would normally receive from their mobile carrier, providing the ability to easily switch between networks without having to grab a new card and set everything up. It’s designed to make your life easier, if carriers play along. Unfortunately, while US networks support the new SIM (except Verizon), not all is well.



It’s interesting to note how iPads bought through retail differ to those purchased from the carriers. iPads sent to the top carriers in the US are kitted out differently with AT&T and T-Mobile opting for Apple’s new SIM, while Sprint and Verizon still ship with their own cards.


Verizon will require you to insert a new SIM to use a new iPad on its network, while AT&T will outright lock the SIM. The good news is it’s possible to switch out the locked SIM with a new one to get going once again, but this eliminates any advantages the Apple SIM brought to the table.
