Hurray!!Got a new phone.

Today i am more than just elated writing this post and why not ,finally ,after using NOKIA 3310 for 4 years i got myself a new set W810i 🙂 .thats quite a big transision . Isn’t it??

Well,I had thought of buying a new one after finishing my degree but my 3310 was in so terrible condition that i had to change my mind. It was full drama out there when i went out to buy the phone.I went to Tnagar univercell shop to check out the mobiles that was the biggest mistake i did ,being diwali time there wasn’t enough space to even walk on the roads .Rain started making the conditions worst .

When i decided to buy W810i the guy who was attending me said that they were out of stock.So after having a deep though i asked him get the K750 ,ironically even that was out of stock.Then i had to go to another UNIVERCELL shop only to find that they too were out of stock . Fortunately ,there was a sony showroom nearby where i managed to get the W810i set.There was no end for my state of delirium at that time.

It Costed me almost 10,000 bucks but after using it i felt it was worth giving that much of money.The thing which attracted me the most in this handset was its look (though i liked W850i more ).

It has a 2 MP Camera with Photo Light and auto focus capability.

dsc00093.jpg This was taken from my mobile camera and i am more than satisfied with its clarity.Walkman feature is amazing when used through headphones. I think the speaker sound is a bit low than what i had expected but i dont have any qualms about that.

This is it for now .I have semester exams after diwali so don’t know how often i would be blogging.Anyway i would try my best to take out some time.


We are now at a stage where technology which is supposed to be a boon to the society can be used to ruin the same society.

Latest trend in the hacking arena has reached to such an extent that our own mobile and landlines aren’t safe with caller ID spoofing on the rise.For those who are oblivious about caller ID spoofing

“Caller ID spoofing is the practice of causing the telephone network to display a number on the recipient’s caller ID display which is not that of the actual originating station; the term is commonly used to describe situations in which the motivation is considered nefarious by the speaker. Just as e-mail spoofing can make it appear that a message came from any e-mail address the sender chooses, caller ID spoofing can make a call appear to have come from any phone number the caller wishes. Because people are prone to assume a call is coming from the number (and hence, the associated person, or persons), this can call the service’s value into question.” (source :WIKIPEDIA)

To be simpler in words , you can call anybody from ur number pretending to be calling from some other number.You can fool anybody in the world by sending sms and by calling from a number that is not urs.Infact even i was oblivious about such a thing until i found it in a newspaper and decided to check it out.. a site name spoofcard (works only in US) was mentioned in the newspaper .The  spoof  site even can change ur voice and can record ur calls. To my amusement it even provides free sample service for testing.IT asks you to enter ur number ,destination address and the number which u want to spoof .Once u place call ,you can mange to talk for 2 minutes in the sample test.

What was even more flabbergasting was that this not the only site there are umpteen number of sites that claims to spoof caller Id’s .

Even thinking of this sends creeps into my spine. With every passing day a new threat is being posed into our lifes, from fake emails ,then to fake profiles  and now even our phone is prone to hacking.Just imagine the consequences of this spoofing technique if used with a real bad motive. The world can end up in a jeopardy if this software is used efficiently by anti social elements.

Every technology that comes new seems to  be faltered in some or the other way.I wonder if there would be any full stop to it.

Well this caller id spoofing is new to me so would update more on this later..


Mobile Hacks

Do you think You are a mobile Geek..check out this !!!!

GOT this through a mail today..



* The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile** is 112 ..* If you find
yourself out of coverage area of your mobile network and there is an
dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to
establish the emergency number for you,
and interestingly this number 112
can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.
**Try it out.**


Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?

This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call
someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a   foot from your car door and have the person
at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on
their end. Your car will unlock.
Saves someone from having to drive your
keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,
and if you can reach someone who has the other “remote” for your car, you
can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

Editor’s Note:
*It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!”*

Hidden Battery power
Imagine your cell battery is very low , you are expecting an important call
and you don’t have a charger.
Nokia instrument comes with a reserve
To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with
this reserve and the instrument will show a
50% increase in battery. This
reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:
* # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your
handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. when your phone get
stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They
will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the
SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.

You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either.
If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.


Above two phones are two N95 sets , with a slight difference that one is NOKIA N95 and Other is NOKLA N95.

Confused ??? Well Nokla is some south korean or chinese counterpart of nokia which manufatures its own N series models and its so remarkably disguised as nokia N95 that even the most attentive of the customers would fall for it and assume it as an authentic N95 phone by nokia.

Well ,even i was flabbergasted by its resemblance to the orignal NOKIA n95. Actually its not only N95 whose clone is being sold freely in the market there are even other models of N series that are available in the market manufactured by the Nokla.

One month back i had written a post in which i had mentioned how badly i wanted the N95 set. After getting to know about the N95 (nokla ) i guess i can have a N 95 set at last 😛 . Yes , the orignal N95 would cost me around 25000 bucks however if i choose N95 (nokla ) i have to shell out just about 7000 rupees.Even If it is a duplicate one IT would be enough for me to flaunt it in my college 🙂 . Though the warranty is not given it has some features that even orignal N95 doesn’t have..Seems queer ,right ??? yes, the duplicate one has a facility to watch Tv in it and It even has dual sim card feature through which you can use two sim cards by swapping each other at any time.

Howeever you have to compromise with some features like Nokla N95 has only 3.3 megapixel camera and there are no authentic service providers for the set if something happens ot the set.


How do u diffrentiate between the orignal and the duplicate One ??

THE above pics can show you the diffrence between the original and Fake N95’s.

Check out this for detailed article on how to spot the fake one.



Having a nokia set ,with problem of overheating while charging,well ,if yes,then check out the battery for BL-5c label in it.

Finally ,nokia has admitted that th problem of overheating do exists in some of the models and has agreed to replace a whopping 46 milllion batteries .They told then in some case overheating caused by short circuit can even dislodge the batteries.the problems is only for the batteries manufactured by Matsushita .

You can check whether ur mobile has been affected or not by logging into the nokia web site and entering the serial number for the battery.fianlly go the closest nokia retail shop and get the replacement..

Well ,it must be a huge loss for the nokia as far as both fiancial reasons and its BRAND is concerned with already ,number of nokia users dwindling with each day
