Samsung Galaxy 4


Recommended Posts

Phone conversations have not changed for 100 years. I wonder what improvements the new iPhone has brought to phone conversations over last 18 months?

10 hours instead of 8? Holy shit, on the rotary phone from 1950-ies or even 1930-ies you could talk day and night, weeks and months without interruption. If you only had that much to say.

Spoke to my mate who has one and he says no password is needed to operate the S4 although he did add a password to stop anyone else using it.

I think from around 2006......cannot remember where   attachment=1811:Library - 0041.jpg]    

It should be illegal to sell them any other way.

So here are two strands of a similar thread. One expounding the myriad benefits of a multifunctional pocket computing/navigation/communications device, the other the need for a mobile version of a land line phone. Both products are available in the market and meet the needs of their respective purchasers. A pure mobile phone has a certain simplicity that allows talking and listening, though that is all it does. Perfect for those who need only that, indeed I know several people for who that is already to much! They come in a variety of colours so buy a bunch and choose the one that matches your shirt and socks on a daily basis. The more complex device appeals to a different group of people with a mix of both need and interest. I do use the camera, gps and internet connectivity of my mobile device for work related activities. I also use it to make phone calls, though since what I have to say is of little consequence so is the phone functionality.

The annoying thing about actually liking the iPhone is that folks want to lump you into a 'hipster' camp. Someone trying to be cool and following a trend.

 

The iPhone itself has already fallen out of fashion with the trendy. It's just a matter of time. But, myself, I use the hell out of the little bugger - thank you Steve Jobs. You may have been a control freak egomaniac, but you left a worthwhile body of work. Gratzi....

Is not cloning and tampering SIM cards illegal in many other countries?

 

Logic like the SIM card in Galaxy is linked to it in the books but then goes into an unidentified set?

 

Say, Yala, Pattani....a cloned SIM card set into an handset and then into motorbike tank with explosives and remotely activated.

"Is not cloning and tampering SIM cards illegal in many other countries?"

 

Not just using an adaptor it isn't - as for cloning and tampering SIMs I don't know, but how you get to criminal activity from a plastic adaptor that makes a mini SIM fit a normal SIM hole I don't know either.

 

In fact it's common practise when using the same SIM in two phones - iPhone 3 and 4 for example.

Perhaps, the card goes into the set it was sold with, there is a track. Moving it into an another handset breaks that link. Business wise, it knows what the capabilities of the set are. Now I wonder, what would have happened if I "adapted" the Galaxy 4's SIM card into a 20$ Nokia phone? Like Win 7 installed on a 286 PC (if it would install at all)?

 

That does not make it illegal. One has to dig into communications laws

- for example it is illegal to jam mobile signals in restaurants where patrons may be disturbed by other's people talk.

Gentlemen, this is what the sales rep at a 5 storey (Edion) electronics shop told me, when I showed a printout of baa99's pic:

 

"That is illegal in Japan, you can't find that adapter anywhere in free sale".

 

Is it really available in your countries? The adapter micro SIM to mini SIM?
