I either had to clear out some space or start paying for email. I opted to clear out the space. Here's a good trick I used to delete emails that I didn't need anymore in bulk. Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories. I arrived at work on Monday to a daunting warning. My Gmail inbox had reached maximum capacity, and unless I did something about it, I'd no longer be able to send or receive emails. Emily Cohn/Business Insider I'm generally an "inbox zero" kind of person, meaning I try to clear my email inbox out every day and let my inbox serve as a kind of to-do list. But when I get rid of emails, I generally archive them and rarely ever delete them. That means the emails are still available and accessible if I need to find them, but they don't clutter my inbox. One of the main reasons I love Gmail is that … [Read more...] about I just cleared out my Gmail using a simple trick that took only a few minutes — here’s how to do it

Dave Johnson, provided by Published 11:08 am CDT, Thursday, March 14, 2019 Adnan Abidi/Reuters There's no built-in method for recording phone calls on your iPhone, but apps which add this capability abound. Google Voice is a free method for recording calls, but it's limited to inbound calls and requires the other party to dial your Google Voice phone number. Apps like TapeACall and Call Recorder can record both incoming and outgoing calls to your iPhone, but these apps aren't free. Perhaps surprisingly, one of the things you can't do with your iPhone "out of the box" is record a phone call. This may be in part because Apple didn't want to have to deal with the legal issues surrounding recording phone calls – there are laws at both the state and Federal level that place limits on your right to record calls, especially without all parties' consent (and these laws can vary by state). But it's indeed possible to record calls on an iPhone; you simply need … [Read more...] about How to record a phone call on your iPhone using third-party apps
Steven John, provided by Published 1:17 pm CDT, Wednesday, March 13, 2019 Jaap Arriens/Getty You can easily unblock a blocked number on your iPhone if you no longer want to prevent that number from sending you calls, texts, or FaceTime requests. The process of blocking a number takes only a few seconds, and the unblocking process is equally simple and quick. Here's how to unblock a blocked number or contact on your iPhone. There are many good reasons to block a phone number or contact on your iPhone. Maybe you're screening every call you get and blocking the spam calls as they come in. Maybe you don't want texts from a certain friend with a questionable sense of humor popping up in your screen while you're at work. Or maybe you just went through a break up scorching enough that the idea your former flame could get in touch with you is too much to handle. The good news is that blocking a contact takes only a few seconds. The better news is that … [Read more...] about How to unblock a blocked number or contact on your iPhone
Dave Johnson, provided by Published 4:29 pm CDT, Tuesday, March 12, 2019 Hollis Johnson/Business Insider You should always have a current backup of your iPad so that if it's lost, stolen, or damaged, you can restore all of your data and apps to a fresh device. Backing up to Apple's iCloud is easy and automatic (if you've turned it on), so you can always have a current backup with no hassle. If you prefer, you can manually back up to a computer using iTunes. It requires physically connecting your iPad using a USB cable. If you're running low on storage space in iCloud, you can choose what apps and data you want to back up, or you can buy an iCloud subscription for additional storage space. While it's a shame to lose your iPad – whether it's because it's broken, stolen, or literally misplaced – things could be a lot worse. If you have a current backup, you can restore everything to a replacement iPad and carry on as if nothing ever happened. The … [Read more...] about How to backup your iPad to iCloud or a computer
