    Problem with Lumapower MRV SK Hunters turning on and off immediately

    ~ Put the battery from the 6 year old light into one of the newer lights and see if it still turns off in one second. Maybe the batt's are not as charged as you think. They may be ready to be re-cycled. Test them on a digital volt meter and report your findings. ~

    1st ... bear in mind I don't have a new modern phone ..... But I'll share my thoughts on your question . For any phone to AUTO-dial a number ..... doesn't that number have to be included in the SPEED-dial list and assigned to a button for single press dialing ? Or maybe on modern phones the...

    what is the differnce between a button top and a non button top. (don't say a button!
