  • Motorola repair facility phone number?

    Does anyone know the number of the repair facility in Memphis, TN? I've had my phone out for repair for 2 months now and am unable to reach anyone outside of Argentina and India. I know the phone is in TN, but can't actually talk to anyone in Motorola's office there. Did an internet search and found nothing. Thanks for the help.

  • Why does my music fade in and out?

    Lately I've been noticing that mp3s on my computer increase then decrease in volume a few times while playing each song. I thought it was a problem with windows media player so I tried a few other mp3 software programs and have the same problem. Any ideas on why my music fades in and out like this? I believe this is a recent problem. Never seemed to notice before. Any help would be appreciated. Arigatou.

  • How do I get rid of "featured content" in Google Earth?

    Every time I start Google Earth I have some of the featured content like the A's all over the map from the American Inst. of Architects, for example. I can unclick everything I don't want, but when I close and start up the program it all appears again. There doesn't seem to be a way to save current settings. Any help? A very small problem, but I'd like to figure it out. Thanks.

  • Can employer include more school reimbursement on w2 than attended in a given year?

    I received a w2 form for employer paid education. I attended school full-time (four quarters) in 2006, but my employer also included the last 2 quarters of 2005 plus all four 2006 quarters in my 2006 w2, for a total of 6 quarters of school tuition that I have to pay tax on. I should have been taxed on the 2005 quarters on my 2005 taxes by getting a separate w2 for tuition then, but it all got heaped together on my 2006 instead. Do I just get taxed for all 6 quarters or should they fix this? Hmmm, odd situation I realize. Thanks

  • When do you use "more ..." versus "-er" in English?

    Is there a general rule for using one over the other? For example, "drier" or "more dry", or "crazier" or "more crazy". Dumb examples possibly, but you get the idea. Never learned a rule, just usually go by what sounds right. Thanks

  • What are the tax benefits for my situation?

    I am paid a salary to go to grad school. A got a w2 for this salary a few days ago. In addition, the tuition is paid for but is considered taxable. I also received a w2 form for this tuition payment to my school. I have a few odd quesitons that hopefully someone can help me out with concerning taxes.

    I'm used to paying my own tuition in college and then taking the credit later when taxes come. In this case however do I get the same lifetime learning credit? My employer sent a check to my school, so I didn't see it. I do have the w2 saying that the $10,000 is considered wages. Very confusing to me. I feel that if I was given the $10000 as part of my normal wages and then paid the tuition out of my pocket, the situation is the same, but more clear.

    In addition, do I only pay tax on $4750 because of the "fringe benefits for employer paid education" clause of $5250 (from IRS pub 970)?

  • Do you read movie reviews of movies you really want to see?

    I've had the experience of waiting for a movie to come out only to find out it got not-so-great reviews. So do you stay away from reviews for new movies and just go see it anyway?

  • How does hail damage affect car value?

    I have a car with hail damage. I got an estimate and a check to cover damages. I will probably keep the car for another 4-5 years before trading it in. Is it smarter to keep the $3000 (approx) and put it toward payments or put the money into repairs? I'm assuming as the car depreciates, so does the damage cost. In other words, $3000 in damage now will not be the same amount for a significantly older car later down the road at trade in time. Thanks for your help
