What does 1GB data allowance mean – Mobile

What is data allowance I hate being restricted to how much mobile data allowance I have – you are never sure how  much you you are using.  Thats why if I can, I will always go for unlimited, or as Three.uk call it  All-you-can-eat-data when sorting out my tariffs. When going on holiday people are always asking me – how long can I go on the internet for if I only have so much data allowance per day – the trouble is it doesn’t really work that way – it depends what you are doing. Orange now have an app […]

SoundHound can name that tune, just sing or hum.

What song is this – What’s that track – Tra la la. Is that a familiar question? All day you have had that annoying song going around in your head, you have no idea what the artist or the title of the track is, and you only know a few words, which doesn’t come up in a Google search. (Yes this is me!) SoundHound could let you keep your sanity! SoundHound is a music recognition application by SoundHound Inc. which can recognise tracks from your singing – well most of the time, and that’s with my bad singing!  It is said to […]

Blank screen on Nokia 6700 Fix

Recently we had a problem with a Nokia 6700 mobile phone, the problem was a blank or black screen with a back light. After searching the internet we could not find out what the problem was – so I decided to share this with you as we found out the solution. None of the buttons seemed to do anything, I asked some of my Nokia friends who suggested the 3 finger reset which actually you need 4 fingers for, as you also have to turn the phone on.  This solution seemed to make the phone make a noise, sometimes the […]

Setting up MMS or Internet on your T-Mobile Phone

If you have changed your phone or swapped sim cards to another handset you might be frustrated to find that you cannot connect to your social media networks or send MMS (picture messages). That is because you need to be setting up MMS again. You may have even received a text message from T-Mobile asking your to set up these services and to reply to 34967 however it sometimes it doesn’t work – the message comes back that it cannot be sent to this address. Strange! I’m not sure why this happens but it appears to be happening to a lot […]

My impressions of the Nokia X7

I was recently given a Nokia X7 to test out for review from WOMworld Nokia  – my first impressions were of the box actually, the box looked more like something that you would get from Apple (except it was blue) than Nokia, not that a box matters really.  It was just compact and smart looking, I hate it when you get a massive box with lots of plastic with a mobile phone lost inside it, there is no need. On opening the box I was met with the stylish 8 megapixel Smartphone with a 4inch Amoled touchscreen. The X7 is pleasing to […]

Facebook Phonebook – are my contact numbers on show?

Here we go again .. There is some confusion on Facebook about your contact numbers from your phone showing on your Facebook profile – this has popped up again since the arrival of the new application from Facebook called “Facebook Messenger”  where you can IM people from Facebook.  (Maybe because you have to Sync your contacts to use it?) There is a viral message appearing in our feeds that says … All the phone numbers in your phone are now published on Facebook.   This ability (contacts)  has been there since the “Facebook Phonebook” feature at least a year ago, maybe […]
