  • For the second time in a week there are rumblings about a RadioShack-branded wireless carrier. The latest rumor pins a launch date on September 5th for their new no-contract cellular service.


    It’s being called the “RadioShack No Contract Wireless” (or the “RadioShack No Contract Wireless powered by Cricket") and will be operated on the Cricket Wireless network. Details are few at this point, but the latest leak reveals a few of the devices that will be available.


    The selection could include the HTC One V, Huawei Mercury and an unnamed 4.3-inch handset from Alcatel. Many of the devices on RadioShack’s network will feature Muve Music which offers unlimited song downloads, ringback tones and ringtones. All of the Muve Music phones will be equipped with an 8GB microSD card.


    There are no hints as of yet about pricing for the devices or the service. At the rate the rumors are coming, there should be a few more circulating before September 5th.

  • Women Falls in Sewer for Cellphone
    Posted on August 6, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    A 46 year old Jackson, Mississippi woman got stuck in a sewer on June 21, 2012 while attempting to get a smartphone back that she had accidentally dropped into the sewer. The woman fell in the sewer at the corner of Watson and Piney Woods Streets, just off of Martin Luther King Drive. Lori McElroy of 1312 Piney Woods Street was talking on a cell phone, when she accidentally dropped her iPhone 4S into a sewer. She was accidentally stuck in the sewer drainage system as she attempted to get the cell phone she dropped down the drainage system.



    The fire department was called and had to use the Jaws of Life to get her out. The woman was rather embarrassed but thankfully unhurt and unharmed. "I was on the phone talking with somebody and then I dropped the Apple iPhone 4S in the sewer" said McElroy."There wasn't any water in it, so I figured I could go down there and get it. Then I got stuck and couldn't get out."


    She continues on by saying, “"And then they had to call the fire department and the ambulance. I feel wonderful that I am out, but it was a stupid mistake. It's better to just go buy another phone instead of having to go through that." She said that a "phone isn't worth it" and if this happens to you, "just go buy a new one."

  • In March 2011, a prisoner at the Beaumont prison from which an inmate escaped with the help of a cellphone last year has one of Texas’ worst track records for prison personnel bringing cellphones into the facility. David Puckett, aged 27 years old was serving his fifth year of a 30-year sentence for aggravated assault of a public servant out of Lavaca County in Texas.


    Beaumont Prisoner uses Cellphone to Aid in Escape


    Beaumont Prison Authorities haven’t said how they think Puckett obtained the smartphone he used to plan his breakout and meet up with a female admirer in Omaha, Nebraska where he was recaptured a little over week later.


    “There obviously is a big difference between an officer who is found with their personal phone in their front pocket because they forget to take it out, and an officer who has six phones and chargers taped to their stomach,” suggested an unnamed prison source.


    Data has shown that over the course of a 10 year period more than 1,100 instances in which Texas Department of Criminal Justice employees were accused of breaking prison system rules by bringing cellphones such as iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One S etc or phone parts into prisons whether intentionally or accidentally. Some of those incidents include from the database: A chaplain at the Cotulla inmate transfer facility in South Texas tried to sneak in his cellphone inside his motorcycle helmet. A phone was found lying in a flower bed inside the secured area at outside Waco; another guard’s phone was found left in a bathroom at outside Huntsville. Even prison guards aren't' impervious because a lieutenant’s phone was found inside a boot when he left his uniform boots to be shined by an inmate at a prison north of Lubbock.


    Well since this most recent escape escapade it's become a felony offense here to supply an inmate with a cellphone or a cellphone component. Texas prison employees are also forbidden by rule from bringing personal cellphones into a prison at any time. Texas State has also added additional security measures by “in the process of installing hundreds of video surveillance cameras which will assist in our efforts and serve as a further deterrent to individuals who are considering smuggling contraband into the facility.”

    Android apps with “energy bugs”


    Here’s something most of us don’t consider when choosing an app: how fast that app will use up our cell phone or tablet device battery power.   Well, Purdue University researchers have put a lot of thought into it, and they aren’t going to stand for a wasteful Android app.


    Researchers at Purdue have been demonstrating for awhile now how app design affects power usage. They’ve shown how some apps use huge amounts of energy just running ads. (In a previous report, they showed how Angry Birds uses 63% of its resources for peddling rather than propelling.) Now they've confirmed that lots of apps on Google Play have what they call serious "energy bugs." In other words, those apps that use Android's power control or wakelock APIs to prevent a phone going into sleep mode.


    Purdue’s results show that the majority of developers use wakelocks correctly, but around 25% of them make mistakes in how they manage APIs. The effects on battery life are substantial. It can cause a fully-charged phone to drain "in as little as five hours."


    Out of 187 wakelock-exploiting apps tested, 42 had errors. Next week’s report may list the offenders, but it is also expected to provide the means for a developer to easily check their work.

    Intel exec Mike Bell said in a recent interview that rival chip manufacturers aren’t doing enough to optimize Android for multi-core processors. Intel recently entered the Android market with its single-core Medfield Atom processor, defying the trend set by other chip makers towards dual-and quad-core development.


    Intel says Android and multi-core technology not ready for one another


    Intel is doing what it can to stand up to multi-core market dominators like Samsung, NVIDIA and Qualcomm. Intel’s general manager of mobile and communications Mike Bell acknowledged that Intel has supported multi-core chips since Android 2.3.4 but noted that internal testing had shown that multi-core chips sometimes run slower than single-core models. He said they’ve concluded that, in order to address this problem, Android needs to be more compatible with multi-core processors.


    “If you take a look a lot of cell phone on the market, when you turn on the second core or having the second core there [on die], the [current] leakage is high enough and their power threshold is low enough because of the size of the case that it isn’t entirely clear you get much of a benefit to turning the second core on,” Bell claimed. “We ran our own numbers and [in] some of the use cases we’ve seen, having a second core is actually a detriment, because of the way some of the people have not implemented their thread scheduling.”


    Bell also said that he has “taken a look at the multiple core implementations in the market, and frankly, in a thermal and/or power constrained environment – what has been implemented – it isn’t obvious to me you really get the advantage for the size and the cost of what’s going into that part.”


    Intel isn’t talking about a deadline for the delivery of a multi-core Atom processor. Bell would only say that the company is investing in “software to fix the scheduler and fix the threading so if we do multi-core products it actually takes advantage of it.”

    The buzz is everywhere about Fort Lee, the town in New Jersey that banned texting while walking. The Associated Press originally reported the story as a law that would impose a $54 fine on someone who was texting while walking.

    (REAL sign posted in Fort Lee, New Jersey)


    This follows an incident in China that made international headlines... when a woman texting on her phone while walking fell through an open manhole and had to be rescued.  It turned out both the woman and cell phone were unscathed.

    As the Atlantic Wire corrected the story, “the official fineable offense is in Fort Lee, N.J., is jaywalking, which can include but is not limited to texting while walking.  While it is true that you can get a ticket while you are texting and walking, you can only get fined if the texting turns you into a distracted jaywalker who creates a dangerous traffic situation.”

    The town passed the law because more than 20 pedestrians have been hit while jaywalking in the town this past year, including three people who were killed. “It’s a big distraction. Pedestrians aren’t watching where they are going and they are not aware,” said Thomas Ripoli, chief of the Fort Lee Police Department. Police handed out pamphlets during a short grace period in March before they began aggressively going after “dangerous walkers.” The New Jersey Record reported that more than 117 tickets have been issued since then.

    In a study on walking and texting conducted by two professors at Stony Brook University in New York, they found texters are 60 percent more likely to veer off their paths than non-texters. “We want to raise awareness that a real disruption occurs because of texting,” Eric Lamberg, co-author of the study, told Long Island Business News. “Texting disrupts your ability much more than does talking.”


    New York State Senator Carl Kruger wants a similar ban to in New York. It would also prohibit talking on the phone or using iPods while walking or running.

    Managing Customer churn as well acquiring new customers is an ongoing problem for all carriers... as such, they make it difficult for customers to switch providers.  To this end, practically all carriers worldwide engage in 'false highly-persuasive' advertising.  They will typically lure consumers with the offer of FREE smartphone and then hook, reel and lock them in with long term service plans that are designed to not only subsidize the cost of the cell phone but provide wireless voice & data services at premium prices.  To further enforce customer loyalty, carriers lock their giveaway phones to only work within their network frequencies - thus making it difficult for consumers to leave them for another carrier.


    In some cases, the programming may be easy to reverse, with the user simply reformatting the cell phone or removing the phone's memory card.   In other instances, the phone may be designed in such a way that it is impossible to use it with another network, with most cell phone brands, like Apple, Blackberry, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, LG Mobile and Sony to name a few,  manufacturing specific phones for particular networks.


    In contrast, an unlocked phone are simply handsets that aren't handcuffed to a specific carrier's service package can be used on any network.


    Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Unlocking a phone - How it works


    Unlock Cell Phone


    A cellphone handset is like a body without a brain. It can't make calls unless it has a thumbnail-sized chip called a SIM card installed. The SIM card identifies an individual phone on a cellular network so that calls can be routed to it as the handset is carried from place to place, so the owner's account can be billed for air time and long-distance fees, and so on.


    When a phone is bought on a service plan, the SIM card in that phone is linked to the subscriber's ID information for billing. Most carriers lock the phone by programming its software so that it will only work with the SIM card they provide — try to swap it with a card from another carrier because it has a cheaper service plan, for example, and the phone won't recognize it.


    An unlocked cellphone is one that will recognize any SIM card. So if you're travelling in Europe and don't want to incur roaming charges or have every local call billed as long distance by your regular North American cellphone carrier, you can buy a local European carrier's card during your stay and pop it into your regular phone.


    The caveat is that there are two main cellphone networks, and they aren't compatible with one another. One is based on the CDMA standard, which is popular in North America and parts of Asia, and used by Bell and Telus in Canada. The other is GSM, which is used by Rogers in Canada and is the most common cellphone standard outside North America, used by more than 2 billion subscribers in most countries around the world.


    An unlocked phone will work on a compatible network — CDMA phones on CDMA networks and GSM handsets on GSM networks. But many CDMA phones have the SIM card built in, and have to be reprogrammed directly to make the phone work on another carrier's network. Most GSM handsets, on the other hand, have a slot that allows a SIM card to be swapped easily by the user.  As a result, unlocked cellphones available in Canada are predominantly GSM models.


    Enhance your mobility and turn your device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.

  • LG Vu Teaser
    Posted on February 13, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By John Castell


    Remember Zoolander’s impossibly tiny cell phone? At the time smaller was cooler when it came to mobile devices. Impossibly small, then impossibly thin. And now, “bigger is better” is making a comeback.


    At least that’s what we may see from LG at this month’s Mobile World Congress. More than likely, the LG Optimus 3D 2, quad-core X3 will be on display but we also hope to see LG’s Vu. The super-sized, 5 inch phone was the star of a teaser video from the Korean company and boasts a large screen.  Discover  the LG Vu:



    The aforementioned was a simple teaser… whetting our appetite for the LG Vu.    Besides the 5 in 1024x768IPS display, this upcoming Android 2.3 dual-core handset will have a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. There are smartphones out there with more impressive specs, but there are removable storage and extra memory for sale out there to accommodate the pictures taken with the Vu’s 8 megapixel camera.   See the entire LG Vu feature list here.

Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    LG has to hope that the Vu has a better sales record than the Pantech Pocket, the most recent Android device that used a 4 to 3 aspect ratio. By all accounts, that smartphone bombed miserably at AT&T. However, LG has been surprising consumer with great cell phones, as such, if launched properly to the consumer market; the LG Vu could be a great alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note.


    As of now, we cannot say if the Vu will be at the Mobile World Congress, if it is to be brought to North America as an unlocked cell phone, or when it will be available outside of Korea. However, our fingers are crossed to see more of this new device. If the accessories are as intriguing as the possibilities of this handset, LG’s Vu may be a contender.
