Some Questions About Mobile Phone

Sometimes the best way to find out about something is to ask questions about it. So if you want to know about mobile phone insurance, review the answers to the questions below.

Why might you need it?

You may need mobile phone cover because without it, you may need to pay for a replacement or repairs to your phone, or go without one. Some phone users may assume that their manufacturer’s warranty may be all that they need, but it may be worth pausing to consider whether you would get any benefit from having mobile phone cover.

What may be covered?

For mobile phone cover, the risks that may be protected may typically include:

– breakdown outside of the manufacturer’s warranty period. Whilst you may not wish to contemplate your telephone breaking down, you may wish to put a plan in place in case it should;
– accidental damage. Even careful people have accidents. Some gadget insurance policies may even cover damage caused by liquids;
– theft. Phones are portable and valuable – an ideal target for thieves. With theft cover, you may have to follow a tight procedure for making claims. Accordingly, you may wish to check out the policy documents for how many hours you have to phone the police and get a crime number;
– accidental loss. Some insurers may offer this as an additional extra, for which you may have to pay a slight premium. Although when you think about it this is only fair given that this risk is entirely due to the phone owner; and
– data backup. This may be available when you have activated your insurance policy.

Where does it apply?

If you take your mobile phone everywhere, even abroad, then there is no point agreeing to a mobile phone insurance policy that only applies to the United Kingdom. Accordingly, you may wish to ensure that you choose a phone policy that offers worldwide cover.

As with any insurance product, terms and conditions, exclusions and limitations will apply and you may wish to read these carefully to ensure you understand them.

When will your phone be replaced?

Given that you may typically use your phone several times a day, you may wish to check that your insurer can guarantee to replace the phone quickly following a successful claim on your mobile phone insurance. Some insurers may typically guarantee that the phone is replaced within 48 hours.

Getting Cash for Mobiles, Gadgets and Other Items

In the year of 2010 there are many ways in which you can sell new, used, unwanted or even broken objects and possession. Although there are many ways many people don’t know how to go about selling things successfully so I’ve written the following article to help inform you of the different ways in which you can sell your products. I hope you find the following article both informative and useful.

Don’t forget that there are two forms of selling your products which is offline and online. Choose whichever is easiest for you. Although online selling is a little easier and quicker for many people more traditional, older people may prefer offline selling.

Firstly selling objects in the local news paper is a great way to sell items as people are happy to travel within their area and you can often get many phone calls as enquiries. You can simple go online or ring up to place your advert in the local paper.

I would also recommend selling your old things online on auction sites. You’re able to give a great description and show some fantastic pictures to sell your products and you’re able to have a reserve on the price so you get what you want.

The Truth About Mobile Phones

There is no doubt in the fact that science has made a lot of developments in the past, and is still bringing more of the astonishing discoveries and inventions. True is the saying that the more you live, the more wonders of science you get to see. Mobile phones are also one of the technological inventions, with the first mobile phone made by Doctor Martin Cooper in 1973.

When the mobile was first invented, it was invented with the sole purpose of allowing distant communication, without the use of wires. The users of mobile phones at that time would have no idea at all about how this gadget would be used in the future. Now as we see, we have loads of features in cell phones, ranging from digital cameras, to the availability of internet and email service. A business man can use this small gadget for making deals worth thousands of bucks. However, in this world of science, you get to see advantages accompanying disadvantages at all places. It depends on how the mobile phone is used to decide whether it is used in a negative way or a positive way.

So let us first discuss the positive things about mobile phones. Where you can contact a person thousands of miles away, you can also send him messages, at any time of the day. However, where you can call one person at a time from the mobile phone, but in terms of the messaging service, you could send a message to a large number of recipients at one time. Among the various studies made in terms of the benefits of mobile phones, one of the most amazing truths revealed about the mobile phone is that the electromagnetic waves produced by a mobile phone have a role in increasing the brain’s metabolism, especially in the part near the ear. This result was achieved after carrying out a research in which 47 males were asked to keep mobile phones on their ears for a period of 50 minutes, and at the same time, glucose was injected in their blood. It was noticed that during the time when the mobile phone was near the ear, the glucose burnt at a higher rate, than that when the mobile phone was away from the ear. Isn’t this just amazing?

These were the positives about the cell phones. However, talking about the negatives, we will see that they will outnumber the positive aspects. Ask parents about the disadvantages of cell phones, and they will have an unending list of the harms that their children are facing because of continuous exposure to cell phones. One of these is the wastage of time. Children of today are seen addicted towards the cell phones, such that they spend hours and hours, messaging their friends and playing games. As a result, they neglect their studies and show carelessness in other responsibilities. Many people even misuse the cell phones and disturb others calling them for just no reason and sending them senseless messages.

Apart from all these, the most dangerous of the harms of cell phones are those on the users health. It is said that continuous exposure to the electromagnetic waves released by the mobiles may cause cancer, and brain swelling. These two diseases are extremely dangerous, and their results can be really harmful. A study was made in Australia in which some mice were exposed to these electromagnetic waves produced by mobiles, for a period of 18 months. When the mice were tested after this, majority of them were diagnosed positive for cancer.

Mobile Gadgets

Since the day mobile gadgets were invented, they were never envisioned to perform just basic functions. Manufacturers of mobile devices are more than aware of this phenomenon. So they have invested a lot of time and energy into developing and designing the coolest mobile gadgets that consumers would want.

The challenge has always been to find the right balance between power, features, and design. For example, to stay competitive, laptop manufacturers are forever looking at ways to produce slimmer machines. Mobile phone manufacturers are forever looking at ways to improve the designs of their products so that their products look “cool”.

For sure, their efforts may be part of a complex business strategy. After all, it can sometimes be difficult to differentiate products based on hardware specifications or software features. Such elements can be easily duplicated by the competition. So if another company launches a more powerful machine, a product line may be dead in the water. To avoid this problem, manufacturers have learned to create loyalty. How? By improvising on their designs.

Apple is very good at creating loyal customers for their products. Take a look at the Apple 2G iPhone. Everyone wants to get their hands on an iPhone, even though Apple has an exclusive contract with AT&T that allows users to connect only with the giant telecommunications company. But the product is so successful that Apple fans are looking at different methods that allow them to unlock their iPhones so that they can use the gadget with their existing carriers. Obviously, there are some legal concerns. But that is not the point here. The point here is that when there is a loyal following for a popular product, the business will be successful.

After the success of the 2G iPhones, along come the next generation of iPhones – the 3G iPhones. Since the formula has been working so well for Apple, there is little change to the look and feel of the 3G iPhone. The main difference lies in the high speed connection that the 3G iPhone offers. 2G iPhones only offer low speed Internet connections. But with high speed connections opened up, the 3G iPhone is able to support a plethora of new applications. For example, downloading maps for navigation is now possible on the 3G iPhone. If you attempt to run the same application on the 2G iPhone, it would take ages!

Because of the presence of more applications, this has an adverse impact on the battery life of the iPhone 3G. Obviously, the more powerful the applications, the more power it consumes. Hence, the shorter battery life. Still, that does not deter thousands and thousands of Apple fans from getting their hands on a 3G iPhone.
