T-Mobile, Orange and Everything Everywhere 3G Problem

Last morning I received an SMS from T-mobile (my current provider) stating that if I restarted my phone set I would see EE instead of T-mobile as a signal provider.  I did the restart and was able to see EE instead of T-Mobile at the top of the screen.  All fine and well.  Problem started when I wanted to make a phone call.  I was getting disconnected right away.  I went to the nearest T-mobile centre (Barnet Spires Mall), and the very helpful lady there was able to solve the issue.  Apparently Everything-Everywhere is having problem with its 3G network because of 4G network work.  The lady set my phone to get the 3G network from a manually selected list (when searching for available list two EE options came, she selected the bottom one).  The phone started working.  As I normally use the mobile only for phone calls I asked her is it better to change signal to 2G (GMS instead of UMTS).  She said that was also worth a try.  I changed my signal type to 2G.  This was also working fine.  During this rollover period for 4G I think this problem will go on for some time.

Have Multiline Strings in VS

I frequently face situation where a string variable has a long length, so long that I have to scroll the screen left to right to see it.  What helps in this situation is to have breaks in that string so that the full string can be seen without having to scroll left-right.

Using “@” before the string’s value helps in this case.  For example,

string mysql = "select table1.col1,table1.col2,table1.col3, table2.column3, table2.col4, table2.col4 from table1 join table2 on table1.col1 = table2.col2"

can be written as:

string mysql = @"select table1.col1,table1.col2,table1.col3
, table2.column3, table2.col4, table2.col4
from table1 join table2
on table1.col1 = table2.col2"
