GIFT ACCOUNT/SCHOLARSHIP ACCOUNT


S4GRU
 Share

Recommended Posts

As it is said, it is the most wonderful time of the year!  And for many S4GRU Members, it's also the leanest time of the year.  Bills and holiday presents...expensive heating bills with an early winter onset.  We have 22,000+ members, and some of them just cannot afford to renew their memberships.  It is now becoming almost a daily occurrence.

 

Some of you are aware that S4GRU maintains a gift account/scholarship account.  When a member cannot afford to renew or upgrade, we draw from this account to help others in need.  It seems like this year we have had more people down on their luck than normal, and our scholarship account is nearly depleted.  We use this to fund not only people down on their luck, but also the many budding teenage wireless enthusiasts around our site and those who borrow a few bucks to upgrade but then pay it back.

 

If you are able to contribute to help others this time of year to maintain their S4GRU accounts and keep receiving timely update information, please make a contribution to the S4GRU PayPal account.  Please reference in the notes section GIFT ACCOUNT.  Once your donation is logged, you will receive a message that your donation has been added to the scholarship account.  And when your donation is used for a worthy member in the future, you will receive a message about the details for whom and how it was used.

 

One of the great things about gift donations, is that both the giver and the recipient get credit for the donation for future Premier and Honored Premier upgrades.  It's a gift that keeps on giving!  And several of our members who have received gifts in the past have turned around and become very generous givers when their finances have turned around.  I am always amazed at how generous our members can be.

 

And truth be told, S4GRU benefits from this as well.  Not only is it the leanest time of year for our members, it's the leanest time of year for S4GRU as well.  Promotions are the only things that really keep the donations coming in October - January.  So help support your fellow S4GRU members down on their luck and S4GRU too.  Be sure to list GIFT ACCOUNT in the notes of your PayPal donation or send a message to S4GRU after completing your donation.

 

Thank you for considering a donation to the S4GRU Gift/Scholarship Account.

We had a very generous donater this evening already fund half of the goal.  We should be able to wrap this up quickly if you all are able to fund the other half.  I am still stunned by the generosity of our members and staff.

 

We prefer to get gift donations in $20-$25 increments.  That way they are easy to meter out to beneficiaries.  But we will take any amount, if you are not able to do the full $20.  Because we can lump a few gift donations together, if needed.  Thanks again!

Any more givers out there?  We are close to finishing this up.  A big thank you to those who donated already.  And a thanks in advance for those of you considering a donation.

I really appreciate all that have given so far.  I'm hoping we can get the last of the gift donations tonight and I can close up this thread.  If you thought about giving toward this worthy goal, let today be the day!  Thank you for considering a donation to the gift/scholarship account.

Thank you to all who have donated to the gift account.  We have already been using it.  Some of you have already received noticies how your donation has been used.  Thank you for your generous giving.  I would like to re-raise the amount we have donated so far and the amount we were short before interest in donating in the gift account died suddenly earlier this week.


 


If we can raise another $150 - $200, I will close this thread for the season.  Please help donate to support your fellow members in need and S4GRU.


 


Remember, when you donate to the Gift/Scholarship Account, both you and the recipient get credit towards upgrades.  Click here to donate:  https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=CED5R2HV4HMBY

    • The one plus used to be good for that, but we're taken over.  Trying to do it with a one plus nord 200 5g. Need to back it up to android 11 first because 12 has so many issues.  Then ask them to give me the key for the bootloader which takes a week. Then root it. Might take me a while but can keep you posted.   Actually think the issue with n71 is a mvno network restriction. Will try to get a real T-Mobile sim and test it (T-Mobile has not seen fit to move my billing off Sprint nor light up fully upgraded tower for 18 months. Grrr.)
    • Anyone having an issue with someone on the other end of a call not being able to hear you when talking on your A32 5G on Tmobile?
    • Are there any devices on which NSG will lock 5G-NR?  Doesn't offer the option on my Moto One 5G Aces or on my (now dead) One Plus N10 5G.  And I didn't think the Snapdragon Samsungs could be rooted. - Trip
    • iOS users see frequent carrier updates, so I was curious if this is something that happens on Samsung devices, too.
    • *#2263 menu working at all surprised me given unlocked firmware.  Besides Tello, I also use Boost Mobile on T-Mobile and the Samsung band selection app.  On Tello it would find n71 SA including site details, but not connect.  On Boost using T-Mobile, the behavior is the same. except it only has the n71 band.  In both cases you also get neighbors. Can connect to n71 SA with T-Mobile locked phone with TNX.  Then put in Tello sim and rebooted, which works with psim but reported not esim on esim phones. Mobile IP address does not work. Outbound calls ring once and die with any sim in Columbus, OH.  Boost Mobile using T-Mobile network is stuck on connecting... like unlocked (can see site info and neighbors). Could always root it I guess and try NSG which uses modem commands iirc.  A53 5G unlocked  with before June firmware another option.
