When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Calling echo dot-no phone number
« on: August 03, 2019, 07:51:53 pm »
I gave my disabled brother who lives in a nursing home an echo dot.  It was set up with the alexa app on my phone, he cannot operate a phone.  The alexa app and the dot is registered under his amazon account.  If i load my family contacts (phone numbers) into the alexa app, that is signed on with his account, how do family member call his echo dot with their phones? It is an echo dot third generation.

one way is to install the alexa app on the phone.  in addition most amazon apps have the ability to to open and use alexa.   just call using it.
