You'd do better asking someone at the store. Best Buy would be my recommendation. They can explain things in a way that "normal" people, aka those of us who are virtually clueless, can understand.

I'm sorry, Tina, it was one of those posts linked to an advertisement. But at least the sentences made sense this time!

But since the subject has come up, I don't have a sound system and have always wondered if they really made television any better.

Did we kill the initial post? Why are we suddenly getting spammed?

I dunno about surround sound, but I swear AT&T's Uverse really is fantastic. You get net access that's faster than dsl, phone and tv together.

Btw, if anyone's getting It, please message me before you call for it. Hubby works for them, and we'd really appreciate the credit for your getting the service.

If we decide to change, I will let you know, Dot. Hubby loves Cox cable, but they keep raising the bill and it is starting to aggravate us.

We had Cox when we lived in KS. No lie, it sucks massively compared with Uverse.

The only tv available when we moved into our apartment was Direct which was better than Cox, too. We had service outages with Cox at least once weekly.

I won't lie-- Uverse isn't cheap but it more than makes up for the cost in overall quality, especially net access speed, and features available. We hardly ever go to a movie anymore because it's so much cheaper and better to get an On Demand one. Most cost a bit more than a single movie ticket with the pause2pee advantage. Snacks are a helluva lot cheaper, too.

Oh, well...you can check, Tina, but hubby says he thinks you'd be on Verizon's package that's similar to Uverse. He didn't think AT&T covers your area.

Anyway, its features are close enough to Uverse's that it'd be worth your considering it. No credit for us, unfortunately.

I checked and we don't have Uverse here.

Julia, you can ask an admin or moderator to remove postings that don't appear as you intended.

Are you having difficulty using the quote button? I notice that this posting appears to be trying to quote a portion of one of my postings. I've observed some others of yours that appear to be attempts to quote.

If you need help using the forum's features, please don't hesitate to ask. Any one of us will be happy to do what we can to enable you to use the forum more easily.

She is simply copying part of someone else's post and pasting it to save time. All she really seems to want to do is to spam the board with the links. I removed those.

Yeah, I figured it was a new form of spamming when I saw so many postings that went nowhere beyond a partial quotation of a prior posting.

But, on the off chance that it's a newcomer having difficulty, I thought I'd offer.

I suppose there are still people dumb enough to click on such links or to seek to establish a business relationship from a spam posting. I think it's safe to say that they don't frequent YS. I'd hazard a guess that none of us are that foolish.
