    From that description, it doesn't sound like it's swelling. A swelling battery will make a dome shape (very slight) on both the top and bottom case as the battery presses on the case and it gives a...
  2. What "reinstall utility" are you talking about?...

    What "reinstall utility" are you talking about? Did you mean the OS installer? The recovery partition? It does help to use terms carefully as we cannot see your system and can only react to the words...

    No way to check for swelling batteries with a meter, but if you have a straightedge, or ruler, put it across the portable from side to side just above the trackpad and below the keys. It should touch...

    If it's been a while since he travelled there, he may find this interesting to read to refresh:

    We’re Here! (Or maybe not quite yet—Arrival processes ahead.) – England For All Reasons

    And maybe...

    Lisa, if that shop doesn't work out, there is a chain called Carphone Warehouse that has all kinds of cellular support. The have an online presence at Compare Our Best Mobile Phone Deals '|' Carphone...

    As for the SSD speeds, the biggest thing you will see is boot time and launch time for applications. Once running, the SSD will help when opening/closing files.

    If the tech can upgrade the...

    When I go to UK I get an EE SIM card. Actually, I just kept it as I travel there just about annually and it's nice to have the same UK phone number. But in any event, if he's going into Heathrow,...
  8. How do you know that? Some of the displays of...

    How do you know that? Some of the displays of available storage are not accurate and not updated very often. (And it is "storage" not "memory" that I think you are talking about.)
  9. Trying to pick through that last post (#5) to...

    Trying to pick through that last post (#5) to make sense, it would appear you have downloaded the Office suite, but not activated it. Did you pay for it? If you didn't pay and just want to get rid of...

    I'm with Ashwin on this one. I travel to Europe every year, have never seen a satellite phone. Lot's of mobile cellular, and wifi is everywhere, but not satellite. From what I can tell, satellite is...

    The interfaces available on that old machine will be dead slow, making anything from an external drive very slow as well. Even an SSD will not be fast.
  12. What is your ISP speed? In addition to...

    What is your ISP speed? In addition to bottlenecking at the WiFi router, your ISP could be bottlenecking during the day as more people are awake and using the network. That phenomenon is particularly...

    I just tried a VPN to Australia, then logged into HA just fine. Is it working for you now?
  14. I know the difference. I was involved in...

    I know the difference. I was involved in networking before the WWW came along, back when DARPA ran the net. Back before HTTP. I posted what I did because you saidI added the emphasis there to show...

    Patrick, I suspect the language came from the legal department. I would venture a guess that some dolt bought a WD drive, put data on it, then later partitioned it and lost all his data and instead...

    That is very, very strange. Subnets are denoted with a subnet mask of the form 255.255.255.0 where the 255s are there to match the first set of numbers in the IP and the 0 is there to allow the DHCP...

    Just turn off "optimization" and the Photos won't be moved to iCloud. On the iDevice, go to Settings, then Photos and select "Download and keep originals."

    EDIT: Just to be clear, with that...

    The MM is sensitive to the placement of fingers on the mouse when you use it in two-button mode. I find I have to really keep that left finger well to the left of centerline. It's easy to drift back...

    Also might be that you are in Australia trying to get to Holland America. Can you VPN to the US to see if you can get in that way?
  20. Do they have a backup? What kind of backup is it?...

    Do they have a backup? What kind of backup is it? Like chscag said, one run of Disk Utility First Aid may not fix all the issues. Run it until it runs clean. And stay in safe mode for a while, at...

    Hard to tell when they don't come back.

    @RadDave, the Verizon blocker did not work for me. It didn't detect that I am a Verizon customer, probably because I have the Verizon account in the e-sim and have an EE sim in the slot for when I...

    @Still-learning, some history might help. The OS for the MBA, called macOS, is based on a variant of *nix, which is a generic version of a product developed by AT&T called Unix. And that software was...

    Sue, that is exactly right. International roaming only applies to countries, not to maritime providers. The maritime services are all satellite channels and are very expensive. I was on an 11-day...
