comment Checking for SIM card defects
The connections you seem to get are running via a captive portal, most likely WiFi. Check the APN settings (of your mobile connection, not the WiFi ones), and ask the service staff to send you the related settings as service SMS (and optionally in readable format to either compare or setup manually).

comment Can I have a contact entry with a wildcard phone number?
Yeah, something they love to do recently: first having it lying around for 3+ years (this one dates back to 2011), and then closing as "obsolete". Many issues I've starred endet up this way – oh, and at the very same time... Hint: Some CallerID apps might support this. Not tested, but worth a look I'd say.

comment How to find the list of servers accessed by a webpage on android?
For blocking the servers that should be sufficient as well – an entry like 1.2.3.4 127.0.0.1 blocks the server as efficiently ;) But yes, that app goes by IP.

comment How can I reset my device without losing images on it?
Depending on the device and ROM: either all data stored on your "media storage" (i.e. internal and external SD card) stays untouched, or all storage will be pruned. You can play Russian Roulette trying to find out. But the safer way is to backup at least internal storage/SDCard, and take the external SDCard out. B'Hazlacha :)

comment Centrally managing large number of android tablets
I've just put the correct tag on your question. You might wish to check other questions using the same. Probably relevant as well is the tag remote-control. Related question: centrally manage corporate android devices (and the ones linked to it).

comment How to find the list of servers accessed by a webpage on android?
If you've just opened a single tab, that should be the same as "list of servers an app accesses" (Firefox). In that case then: How to listen which URLs an app tries to connect might be interesting for you.

comment Recover deleted contacts and SMS after reinstall
If you performed a factory-reset on your device, reinitialized it, and were already using it after that, chances are very low. Having too much money (or the stuff being really worth it), forensics might have a chance – but apart from that, nothing an average mortal could do. Still, be welcome to check out our data-recovery tag-wiki for what possibilities exist in general.

comment Two Photo icons on Moto G following Lollipop upgrade
OK, that's definitely the drawer. Please try the following: Go to your Android settings, chose Apps › All, scroll to "Photos". Is the entry duplicate here as well? If so, try opening one, and see whether you can disable it. Does the second one stay, or gets disabled along? Also worth a try: Check whether the app drawer offers to sort its entries – e.g. sort it by install-time, and then back to alphabetically. If it's really a dupe entry, that might remove it.
