  • Are you a part of the jailbreaking community? Although Apple has tried their best to put an end to jailbreaking devices, a new jailbreak has surfaced for iOS 4.3.1 device such as ipad and iphone4 unlocked that will make that community happy. Up until now, the jailbreak has not been ideal because it would be undone anytime that handset was reset or turned off. This pretty much made it not worth the time of the user, but now it appears that a new jailbreak method may fix this problem.



    The new tool, titled redsn0w, will be able to jailbreak iOS 4.3.1 devices, and they will remain jailbroken even after they have been shut off. Of course, as with any jailbreak or hack, you have to use it at your own risk. This practice is not condoned by Apple, and they will refuse to support you with any issues that come as a result of a jailbreak.


     


    Make sure that you know what you are doing and have read enough information on the subject before attempting the jail break - especially if your phone is not currently under warranty. Make sure that if you attempt to unlock your handset to use with another carrier that you are not using 4.3.1, because there are no jailbreaks for that device that are working at this current time.



    There is already quite a number of articles that are out there and will help you to quickly and conveniently jailbreak your iOS 4.3.1 device like unlocked iphone 4, ipad and ipod. So make sure to read through them before making any serious attempts. It is in your best interest to be more cautious, especially since this jailbreak was just released and the ramifications and issues with it are not currently clear that this time. Also, look for user testimonials for your specific model of device before moving forward so that you can better troubleshoot any issues that you may have.

  • Twitter Ends Ad Program
    Posted on April 1, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    A recent Google ad program that received a lot of attention has finally been ended by Twitter after a huge back lash took place after the launch of the product. The new ad system, titled Quickbar, but aptly named “#Dickbar” by Twitter users was quickly shut down by Twitter after receiving a lot of negative press and attention. The new bar only inserted ads into the stream of iPad and unlocked iPhone 4 users. Twitter was looking to put the ads up weeks ago, but thanks to internal testing they had been unable to get things launched as quickly as they would have liked.


     


    Some sources have stated that the “dickbar” was a mistake from the very beginning. The idea had been put together by a junior project manager and had not been approved by a leading executive at the company when it went live. Pinning the bar at the top of the app may not have been the best idea for the young junior manager, as the backlash resulted in a lot of bad press for the company.



    This move shows that twitter has not fully decided how they are going to be monetizing their service. Many users are going to be happy with the ad bar being removed from their app on their Apple iphone 4 unlocked. Now one has to question whether or not Twitter knows what they are doing in terms of magnetization. They have always had trouble finding ways to insert ads without insulting their uses, and this is yet another example of a failed magnetization attempt for the company.

  • AT&T New Protection Plans
    Posted on April 1, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Unfortunately for the iPad and unlocked iPhone 4 users, they will not be a part of the new protection plan that AT&T will be offering. The new insurance plan will allow users to protect their mobile device for a total of $9.99 per month. This will cover them against the loss, theft, damage or malfunction of devices that are currently not under warranty. While it might seem to be a little bit steep, these plans will protect a lot of customers who otherwise would have to pay to replace their completely new phone.



    This is the first time that AT&T will release a service like this, and it will cover any wireless customer that does not have an Apple branded product, because they come with their own insurance policies from the company that allow them to receive work only from Apple employees.


     


    The insurance will allow users to quickly replace their device if it is damaged for any reason, and will also allow them to account for electrical failure after the warranty expires on the phone. The deal will probably have a lot of subscribers. In a day and age where your phone is going to be on you all day every day, you really can not skimp on making sure that you have all of the protections in place to ensure that you do not end up without your phone.



    The devices that will be included in the deal include the Samsung Galaxy Tab and new high powered Motorola Atrix 4G unlocked. Users are going to be able to get the new phone for only $50 to $125 -  basically less than the amount that they would pay for the phones if they were to get them with a contract, so this deal could be really beneficial - especially for those of us that lose their phones very easily on a regular basis.

  • New MTS 4G Network
    Posted on April 1, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    MTS has finally launched their 4G network for unlocked cell phone such as BlackBerry Bold 9780, Unlocked Nokia N8, Samsung captivate, etc.. that the company has been talking about for quite some time. The network has been in the works for a number of months and was finally activated for users after months of planning. This is huge news for customers that have been with MTS for quite some time. This will speed up their coverage and will also allow for more advanced plans for the company moving forward.


     


    This should provide download speeds that can reach up to 21 mega bytes per second, which will be nearly twice as fast as their previous speeds. The announcement came from the president of the company, Kevlin Shepherd, who is the usual face seen when the company makes large announcements such as this one.


     


    In his statement, he said that they were able to upgrade their entire coverage area and will give more device options to their customers. It was a huge investment for the company but is certainly one that they are looking to pay off in the long run. It is good to see that they are dedicated to upgrading the coverage offered, and provide higher speeds.



    MTS has continually upgraded their network, which directly benefits the end user.  With this most recent upgrade to 4G, they are officially up to speed with the current demands of a quickly changing industry. The press release from MTS was very detailed, and gave some insight into their future plans. The upgrade of their network will open up a number of new devices that were not previously available with MTS previously. Moving forward, look for their new phones to be announced, as well as a number of phones that will be able to run on the 4G network that was recently launched. There are many different phones that will open up to the company now that they have a 4G network.

  • Sources from BlackBerry have confirmed that version 6.1 of BlackBerry Desktop Manager might be coming in the very new future. The update will allow for compatibility with handsets that run the 6.1 version of the operating system. The app will allow users to better customize and make changes to their desktop to better suit their needs.



    One of the biggest additions from the update is the ability for the BlackBerry such as Bold 9780 and unlocked Torch 9800 to forget the previous devices that have been backed up and synced. This is a feature that has been highly anticipated from users of the service.


     


    A few screenshots of the new version of the software have made their way online that show a number of options that are available to users. You can set the Desktop Manager to ensure that the software will start up as soon as the device is connected, automatically check for updates to the software, and allow for Bluetooth connections to be made.


     


    This is a huge update that will bring a number of key features to the BlackBerry desktop software. One of the biggest inclusion in the update is the compatibility with OS 6.1, which had previously not been able to connect to the BlackBerry Desktop Software for BlackBerry Torch 9800, Curve 8520 unlocked, etc .



    Although this update does take care of a number of key issues, not every complaint was addressed with this update. Hopefully updates that correspond with software updates to the operating system will be much more timely moving forward. Some users have been waiting quite some time for these updates, and the compatibility with the desktop management software is a key feature for many users. The app also offers advanced offers for companies that use the BlackBerry Enterprise Service, and will allow for you to check and synchronize user certificates. It will be interesting to see if Research In Motion adds more features moving forward.

  • NFC payments are undoubtedly the next big thing. Imagine being able to pay for things at your local grocery store right from your cell phone. There are a number of services that have already inhabited the space, but the deal between Google and Mastercard should be one of the largest and should connect the Google Checkout program with the capabilities of Mastercard as a company.



    The deal should allow for NFC access to come to a number of future Android releases. Access could even be granted to current models of phones that have the features required to run the NFC technology.


     


    It looks as though the service will work by receiving the shopping cart info from the customers who are making the purchase from a smart device, and also allows them to set up their shipping options. Google will also be behind naming the total cost of the order. Then, Google will be responsible for collecting the payment. This will allow for google to get a look at exactly what the customers are buying, which might be a bit of a scary thing for some. The amount of data that Google has access to is already huge, but having direct information about purchases that users make through their NFC technology would provide them with another huge helping of valuable information.



    Their service would differ from PayPal and other similar services because they typically will just exchange information with other merchants. In a day and age where everyone is worried about privacy, a deal as large as this may need some approval from government agencies before being allowed. Look for more information to be passed along regarding this issue in the near future. The trend is one that is steadily growing, and you can expect other companies to take a look at NFC technology moving forward as well.

  • Samsung’s app store has been steadily growing since it was first launched, and the company announced that they have officially passed the one hundred million app download mark. This is a huge number, and shows that third party app markets might be the wave of the future. Samsung has output a number of highly touted smart phones devices such as unlocked Samsung captivate i897, Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant, etc and their app market has grown as a result.


     


    There are currently more than 13,000 apps currently available throughout the market. That is more than six times as much as was there when the store was first launched. Some of hte most popular apps that are available through the Samsung app store include Speed Shift and Magic Torch, two very popular games.


     


    It looks as though most of the downloads have come from Europe, most of which come from France. Between France, Germany and Spain, the three companies have accounted for more than forty percent of the total number of downloads.



    Apps for unlocked Samsung phone have continued to grow in popularity and in the size of the pool of apps that are currently available. The overall quality of the Samsung applications has also consistently increased since the service was first launched. Consistently improving their service is something that the company has obviously taken seriously, and their 100 million downloads mark further proves that their efforts have paid off. Samsung appears to be leading the way in the third party app market industry.



    In the press release that was put out today also stated that the company is expecting to quickly grow throughout the course of 2011. With their upcoming new line of high powered smart devices, Bada, you can expect many new users to become interested in their app marketplace moving forward. Now the company will have to focus on attracting some of the larger app development companies in the space, in order to make more apps available moving forward.

  • New Apple Television Coming Soon
    Posted on March 30, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    It looks as though Apple is looking to expand farther into the smart television market. They already have their Google TV product, which is set to deliver high quality streaming videos to users, and now it looks as though they are looking to bring a version of their iOS operating system to actual television sets as well. The new television set would be another market that Apple is looking to revolutionize is the same way that they did the tablet and smart phone markets with the unlocked iPhone 4 and iPad. Apparently, the company already has a working prototype of the forthcoming smart television.; The new TV would be able to automatically connect to their Apple TV service to provide users with video content quickly and easily. They could also allow users to purchase games that can be directly played through the TV.



    It is also thought that Apple would be looking to include DVR features, allowing users to to record television straight through the television. You can expect many of their more popular apps to be updated to work through the television, including their most prominent apps including FaceTime, which would allow users to video chat straight through the television set.


     


    If Apple were able to grab around 1 percent of the current television market, the TV could potentially earn them $4 billion each and every year. They may also look into creating several docking units that would add extra features to the television set.



    No matter what they decide to run with, Apple’s iphone 4 unlocked will be delving into an industry that it has not before and will be leading the way as they have in so many industries recently. Now that the word is out, look for other companies to begin developing similar products of their own. Apple tends to lead the way, but there is always competition close behind looking to capitalize on the attention Apple has brought to a new market.

  • Sprint Gets Rid of Mail In Rebates
    Posted on March 30, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    Sprint has officially ditched their mail-in rebates model, and is now going to be going with an instant rebate model that provides instant savings to their users. Verizon also made a similar move at the beginning of the year. The move will mostly effect their most expensive cell phone. The idea behind the mail in rebates is that a certain percent of the customers will never take advantage of it and will just choose to pay the extra costs rather than spend the time mailing the rebate in. Also, there were issues with the mail in rebate never arriving, which was a complaint of many who took the time to pursue the rebate.


     


    The information was confirmed by Sprint. The official switch came on March 27th, and will continue well into the foreseeable future. The company has not stated whether or not this switch will be completely permanent, but did make it clear that they were willing to give it a shot for quite some time moving forward.



    If the switch is is only a temporary one, the company has not released any information regarding when users can expect it to disappear, so you might want to take advantage of the offer while it was there. The company made the move shortly after the same move was made by Verizon.


     


    It will be interesting to see if other carriers follow in the footsteps of both Verizon and Sprint. Getting rid of the mail in rebate is certainly something that would be in the best interest of their customers, but may not be in the best interests of the company. Look for more companies to make similar changes in the future if it leads to more sales of smart devices. That is the end goal but could result in reduced revenue for the company, which could mean that the offer doesn’t stick around quite as long as many are hoping that it will.

  • AT&T Connects To Amazon App Store
    Posted on March 27, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    With the company behind the ultra popular Angry Birds releasing an Amazon App Store for unlocked cell phone exclusive new update for the game, AT&T is looking to enable purchases through the app store as well. This would be the first time that they have budged from only allowing users to download things from their own app store. AT&T has never previously allowed anything like this, and this should serve as a small shift in strategy for the company. They will be allowing their branded Android devices to have access to the Amazon App Store for the first time in the history of the company.



    AT&T released a statement saying that they were looking to allow users to access third party app stores, but also said that they were going to have to finish the agreements with Amazon first, and promised to share more information with their users at some point in the near future.


     


    Hopefully Angry Birds Rio, and other apps that are exclusively offered through the Amazon App Store will make their way to AT&T branded Android devices here soon. The announcement came as a bit of a surprise because AT&T has been mostly steadfast in their strategies prior to this, and this serves as a big change in the way that they do business.



    In order for this to happen there will likely have to be some sort of widespread update to the firmware, but the company has not confirmed this at this time. Could this be the first step in opening up the door for third party app stores in the future. They do already exist but have not been able to maintain much leverage with most carriers not allowing direct access to them. Hopefully this is the start of a change in the way that business is done within AT&T moving forward.
