I used NoMoRobo for a while, but have now switched to RoboKiller. It works the same way, but has a library of fake conversations to engage telemarketers with, taking up their time. I think it's time to tthe policy of the X-Files: Trust no one!

So it has been a while since I traded in my 12000 for my 15000, but I will take a shot at answering your question. There were a lot of small refinements between the 12000 and the 15000 which individually would not seem that major, but taken collectively they added up to a much more user friendly machine.

On the surface, you have a lot more screen real estate for the actual design because the user interface does not have the “dial wheel” style of moving around that you had with the 12000. Is also felt it has a more user-friendly interface. One of the things I love with the interface of the 15000 (and subsequent embroidery machines) is the ability to follow the design with a crosshair that shows the actual path it is stitching and where it is in the design. The 15000 also tracks usage time sewing and standby status, which is helpful for keeping track of when to take it in for maintenance. I think we were all surprised to discover how much more time was spent with the machine in standby status than actually engaged in stitching.

Also, the 15000 has a fully automatic needle threader. Now some members have had their threaders act glitchy, but as long as I followed the directions and locked the machine, I have never had any problem.

Also, the 15000 seemed to work a lot smoother on small design elements.

At the time, some members suggested that the 12000 felt like the version that had been rushed to market without sufficient user testing, but that the 15000 seemed to be the more finished product.

Another thing about the 15000 is that it comes with the Acufil Quilting hoop and rather than be a separate software, it is totally integrated into the HorizonLink Suite.

You don’t indicate which version of the 15000, you are thinking to upgrade to. There are actually 3. There was a version 1 machine, then they came out with a version 2 machine that seemed to fix a few minor glitches (this was the version I got), then they came out fairly recently with the Quiltmaker version. It was possible to upgrade an existing version 2 machine to the Quiltmaker level. In the US, the dealer changes out a few parts and does a software upgrade, you get a link from Janome to an upgraded version of HorizonLink Suite, and you get an additional set of “specialty feel and a special straight stitch plate to work with a true 1/4 width but also more effectively engage the feed dogs.

Hope this is helpful.

Re: Question

Some of the Differences between the 12000 and 15000:
15000 is a little larger in size, enough that if your sewing table has an insert it may not be large enough for a 15000
Screen on the 15K is superior: in size, clarity and color. The screen on the 12K wasted a lot of space with that "dial" on the bottom
SAME hoops. except the AQS22 comes with the 15k,  it's not an extra. Both machines the RE18 hoops are extra purchases.
Embroidery Stitch Limit: 100,000 stitches vs. 200,000 stitches
Clothsetter: Uses the same one for both
Decorative Stitches: More available on the 15k, 
Tapered Stitches: Only on the 15k
HP foot and Plate: Only on the 15k
Ruler Work foot comes with 15k
WiFi Connectivity: Only on the 15k
IPad Apps: Free: AcuEdit, AcuSetter,  AcuSketch, AcuMonitor: available to use on the 15000 very easily with WiFi connection
AcuDesign: Free with purchase of 15000 with the code provided.
The AcuDesign and AcuSketch apps can be used with a 12000 but the designs have to be saved to a storage source and then loaded onto the 12000

I'm sure there are more differences, but All in all they are both fabulous machines, I have both, and use them both!

I have that same phone however when I first got it I did not have collar ID so it didn't work.  Now caller ID is included in my service so it has helped.

Yes the caller Id does change on those "Robo" calls.  I have reported many of those calls and it has been getting better.  Our Cable company has introduced for free a program that if we register with them and again it is fee they are going to monitor our calls and the instructions are to let the phone ring 2 times and if you have blocked it in the past it will be blocked automatically.  It has been in effect about 2 weeks now and it has helped tremendously.  I realize though that some will slip by it will just take some time for it to work perfectly.  and then maybe it won't but at least they are trying.  It is called "ROBO CALL".  You may want to inquire about itl

I just got a phone call that was a recording stating that Apple security had been breached and my iCloud account was hacked. The Caller ID on my phone said "Apple Inc". Fortunately I already knew it was a scam from this post: Apple Phone Phishing Scams Getting Better

It is possible with today's technology to make the caller ID of a phone call appear to be anything you want. This opens the door for endless streams of miscreants trying to separate you from your personal information and money. If there really were a breach Apple is not going to personally call every one of their customers! They would likely use email, though that can be spoofed as well. If you get a call from Apple, Microsoft, or any company that you are doing business with DO NOT give out any information. Instead log into the website by typing in the address, NOT by clicking an email link. If there really is a problem you will know.

 


Re: Yet another security alert

Carole O'Mara
 

My phone provider does not offer good call blocking to my land line so I get a lot of robocalls and unwanted calls.  But, I can block numbers on my iPhone.  When I am out for the day and hubby is not home either I use call forwarding to forward calls to my home to my iPhone.   When a call comes to the house, it forwards to my iPhone.  If I don’t recognize the number I don’t answer and if they don’t leave a voice mail, I block the number.  When I get home I disconnect from call forward and calls then can come to the house.  You can still make outgoing calls from the home phone even if Call Forward is on.  This has worked and has stopped a lot of calls to the house.  But they do call from different numbers so it’s never ending, but does slow things down.

Re: Yet another security alert

Ginger Benckert
 

I was very stupid the week before Christmas. I got hacked big time, but was able to beat the hackers from buying on my paypal, bank account and credit card. I woke up one morning and saw the mouse moving all over the screen. I tried to stop it, thinking it was just a weird thing happening. The hacker then called me on the house phone with the caller ID of Comcast (my server). Dummy me I answered his question, gave him access to fix the problem, but it was not Comcast. While he was all over my computer I called Comcast directly. They told me to turn off the computer immediately, but he prevent me from moving the mouse to the shut down. Then they told me to quickly pull the plug! Which I did.  Then I saw when I could then sign on the computer minutes later that he bought 3-$200.00 gift card to target. I got intouch with Target, got them voided, then saw money would still be withdrawn now from my bank account. I got there before they did, and closed the account, then saw the charges would now be on my credit card, and I closed that account. It took a week working with companies 7 to 10 hrs a day, but finally it's all fixed. My computer has to go in to the Geek Squad to get it cleaned out, But all is good now. My husband asked me why I spoke with the man who showed up on the called ID from Comcast, and I told him I thought it was Comcast. I was told that Comcast will NEVER call you.  I didn't know that ...no one ever told me.  Big lesson learned. I found out no server will call you. I also have a very expensive security system, but they beat that too!  I hope no one ever takes a call from their server, they don't call you
