  • chatting with China | Kalilily Time
    from a global market And like the usual shop from store to store and deal with store clerks shopper I expect my product questions to be answered thoughtfully and politely I could have been better at my consumer chatting UPlay staff could have started off better JSXL Technology has a big FAIL right up to the very end when I was still figuring out if and how I should return the phonepad I ordered from them Bad attitude and bad customer service does not build a business or consumer trust JSXL Technology is a brand new e commerce site less than a year old My bad for not noticing this right away but they were the site that offered the UPlay phonepad I wanted The UPlay site itself did as well but I gave up trying to figure out how to order from them While JSXL might have a good website and know technology they are worse than worst at knowing how to run a consumer dependent business They have a lot to learn and obviously as demonstrated through their email conversations with me their consumer know less than nothing about how to deal with their customer s questions My advice is to not buy from them until they have more experience as an e commerce business they are hell to deal with That leads us to the other chatters and what we might have learned I have learned that I have to be more patient and accurate about explaining what it is I am asking about Part of the problem is that you don t know what you don t know And phrasing a question about a technology problem in a way that will get you the answer you need is severely hampered when you don t know what you don t know You know I don t know what I can do about that but I think I might want to get into my more patient educator mode when dealing with unhelpful arrogant supposedly consumer support staff This time I lost patience stopped trusting and entered my warrior mode Lastly UPlay staff who resolved the whole issue by finding a way to return the phonepad for a reasonable postage cost And so here is the unexpected end to the story I have decided to keep the phone pad despite a really wonky boot up process and the problems with time outs when trying to download anything I still don t understand why the Android drivers come up as downloaded but uninstalled Code 28 and don t know if the mobile phone component will work when I eventually get to T Mobile and get a SIM card and a plan I m hoping that the UPlay staff will explain what I still don t understand and will answer future questions should they come up Meanwhile I have successfully installed an SD card and used the camera the GPS works I have downloaded Words With Friends OverDrive Media Console Kindle

  • patience, persistence, PayPal and the Yellow Brick Road | Kalilily Time
    the UPlay phonepad with my HP Pavilion Notebook PC so that I can see what s in the tablet s folders These are details that can t be argued What can be argued and are being argued are my experiences not being able to download stuff like the Kindle Android app and of other downloading efforts timing out even though the wifi signal is excellent Maybe it s that driver problem maybe the device is simply a LEMON So what I am doing is documenting via screen images attempts to prove to the seller and manufacturer that the Android drivers that are supposed to be installed are NOT INSTALLED Any techies American Chinese Indian whoever reading the following please tell me if I am wrong and if so what I might be able to to do get this problem fixed The first thing I do is go into Control Panel and then Devices This is what the UPlay phonepad appears as There is a yellow exclamation point by the device which comes up as an MP3 player My iPhone comes up as a camera so I understand how that works I m assuming that the yellow exclamation point means Whoa There s some problem here Check it out So then I click on the device and see that there is no general information for it Well OK I go on from there Next is device functions There s a whole list of Android drivers listed ALL WITH YELLOW EXCLAMATION POINTS There are also other functions without the exclamation points Obviously there has to be some reason why the Android drivers are highlighted as problematic right AHA Click on an Android and you get a CODE 28 MESSAGE THAT THERE IS NO DRIVER INSTALLED Here is information about the Code 28 message which includes Code 28 is a device manager error indicating that the drivers for a given hardware device are not installed This error means that a previous attempt to update the driver failed or a driver was uninstalled for a given device but was not replaced updated This error prompts you to reevaluate your driver installation and reinstall the driver if necessary In most cases reinstalling the driver will fix the problem OK So let s try a fix UH OH NO STRAIGHFORWARD FIX Windows can t find a way to install and the internet can t find a way to install Well maybe there s a file somewhere in the device that s an installer Hmm There are two drivers listed OK Let s click on Android Driver Well that s all well and good but where do I go from there to install This is where my expertise wanes I don t know what these files are but I click on one that looks promising anyway Hmm Let s try this No I don t think I want to take a chance and go this route Here s where my knowledge of this stuff stops So now
