  • Cope of the Michigan state are now all set to be putting into action the state's ban on text messaging while driving from 1st July onwards since it is becoming a big threat to live on the streets. This action has already been undertaken by 14 other states in the United States of America, as well as in various countries over the world. In Canada for instance, the whole phenomenon of sending text messages from your  unlocked cellphone while behind the wheel is being eliminated in gradual stages by the implementation of stringent fines and reprimands.



    However as straightforward the law may seem, it will be really difficult to implement properly. The moot point is that how is one supposed to understand whether you're text messaging or just looking at the number of missed calls you got in the last half an hour? Michigan Police Executive Director Tom Hendrickson said that it would be difficult for law enforcers to understand whether a person is text messaging while driving and he does have a valid point.


    Matt Bolger, 1st Lt. of the State Police, who trains cops on new laws, says that people who are using their cell-phone for calling have nothing to fret about. There would be a fine of around $ 100 for the first time and then a fine of $200 the next time you are caught.



    By enforcing this law Michigan moved into the bandwagon, which already includes other US states such as California, New Jersey and also Washington D.C.


    One good thing about the law is its transparency. Chances are that wherever you might be caught, you would have to pay a fine. So Michigan has decided to go ahead and ban text messaging while driving from unlocked phone. Indeed, one can make a call instead (as there's no ban on talking on a Bluetooth device)!

  • Wired.com a few days ago had an article, which we actually would like to post our comments on.


    1 - A weak brand - We wouldn't call them a weak brand but we do agree they need more marketing.  The face time Nokia puts into their US launches is low.  With phones like the E71 and the E72 and N86 getting FCC approval some really good phones are coming to market.  They just need to market them.


    2 - Lack of focus on CDMA handsets - This we had a problem with.  Granted we sell GSM phones but overall CDMA is not as widespread as GSM.  If you get a quad-band GSM phone you pretty much can go all over the world and get covereage.  The same doesn't go for CDMA.  Nokia decided it wasn't really a good investment since it's only the US and Canada that really support the network and now it even looks like the two major CDMA providers in Canada are swtiching to GSM.  Why support something that looks to be dying off?


    3 - Poor execution - In recent history Nokia has made a few mistakes.  The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic didn't have the best launch which is a shame since the phone as actually a very good one and their apps store, Ovi, had a rocky start as well.  Again doesnt' help but anyone can bounce back considering no company has had a perfect launch record


    4 - Lack of carrier relationships - This goes back to the CDMA problem.  They have phone with AT&T and T-Mobile which is the major GSM networks and it's exactly what they want.


    5 - Unusual design - They have a lot of straight body phone and a few sliders.  With the amount of people who love the iPhone people are getting away from the flip phone.  Maybe we will start to see more


    6 - Symbian - Alright it's not a perfect O/S but is there really any that is?  Windows Mobile has its problems, Android has its problems, and Apple has their problems as well.   Nothing perfect, but at least like all of them Symbian is being constantly being worked on


    7 - An insignificant app store - Wired compared Ovi to the Apple Apps Store.  First things first the Apps store launched over a year ago, but Ovi lunched in May of this year.  They also say compare the 20 000 apps at Ovi to the 55 000+ apps at the Apple store... Again over a year.  Personally we feel to have have the apps in only 3 months that's pretty good.


    So overall alright Nokia gets no love in the US and yes they don't do as much as they should but overall we think the landscape is changing.  Nokia makes some great phones and people just need to start giving them a chance

  • GSM Defined
    Posted on October 21, 2008 by Pure Mobile

    One thing that we most often get questions on at PureMobile is regarding the GSM network and what it is.  The reason is there are two networks CDMA and GSM.  The main difference to find out which you have is locate the sim card, a small chip in the phone that contains all your information.  If you have this card then you likely have GSM.  Now we say likely as some carrier’s like Sprint have a walkie-talkie type network (NexTel) and they use a “sim card” but it’s for Sprint’s CDMA network.


    GSM phones can be unlocked because the sim card can be removed and placed into another phone without having to call the carrier to activate it.  CDMA needs to have each phone activated by the carrier on the network to operate.  This limits the phones you can use. 


    Another difference is that GSM phones are much more widely available.  GSM networks are found throughout the world.  They each use different bands but they are all GSM.  CDMA can be found primarily in North America and a few other countries.


    As we just mentioned GSM use bands or frequencies.  There are four frequencies that are used most frequently.  They are the 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and the 1900 MHz bands.  In North America the two widely available are the 850 MHz and the 1900 MHz.


    So the question is which type of phone should you choose?  Well it depends on where you plan on using the phone.  If you are going to use it in North America then you can simply get any phone that uses the 850 MHz and 1900 MHz bands and you should have no problems.  If you plan to travel then you would be best to get a quad band phone, which is a phone that can work on all four of the bands.  This gives you the least chance of running into a problem with no signal.


    More and more phones these days are coming as quad band phones so you don’t have to limit yourself.  You can get one phone and use it the world over.
