Mobile Phones And Mobile Broadband – The Secrets Of Choosing The Perfect Deal

How exactly do you choose the perfect mobile phone deal? Or mobile broadband? Join me, as I show you buy phone list!
Let’s face it, if you’re trying to find yourself a new mobile phone, or if you’re trying to get yourself that perfect mobile broadband deal, it can be a bit of a minefield. You have to factor in the tariff, how many minutes you get, how many texts, whether you get international roaming… well, the list goes on. But the thing is, it doesn’t have to be a minefield. It can actually be really, really easy. Like anything, though, it takes a bit of preparation. You need to get your mind straight, and then everything else will follow on from that. There’s no point running in half-cocked, and buying a mobile phone or a mobile broadband package, purely on the spur of the moment. Otherwise you’ll get buyer’s remorse, and you won’t enjoy your purchase. Like anything in life, prepare, prepare, prepare!
Step 1 – Analyse what you really want from your new deal
Ok, it sounds obvious, and it sounds silly, but you’d be amazed how many people don’t do this. You need to ask yourself: ‘What factors determine that I need a new mobile phone or mobile broadband? What benefits do I want to get from my new gadget? How am I going to use it?’ In essence, sit down and follow this rough guideline:
– How many minutes-worth of calls do I, or will I, make per month?
– How many text messages do I send per month?
– Do I need to send photo messages?
– Do I need internet access? If I do, might I be better off getting a mobile broadband package?
– How much am I willing to (or can afford to) pay every month?
Only when you’ve answered those questions in your mind should you move on to step 2.
Step 2 – Choosing the right handset
This is the bit that traditionally is the hardest. You know, now, what deal you want, but have you decided on a phone? As before, don’t just buy the first one you find! Fortunately, you have a tool on your side, here: comparison sites (think along the lines of MobileShop, Pricerunner, or Kelkoo). They list everything you ca buy, and will let you search under various criteria, like price, how many minutes and so on. So, go on to one of them, armed with the knowledge you have from Step 1, and start searching. Once you filled in what you want from the deal, no doubt lots of mobile phones or mobile broadband packages will come back.
Now, the next bit of advice may sound contrary, but basically… once you have fed in the details of what you want from the deal, the comparison site will bring back handsets that match that deal. So, you know that whatever you’re now seeing is within your range of options. Once you know that, it lets you move onto the next step with confidence…
Step 3 – Choose from the heart!
Now that you’ve made all the logical choices about what you need, you have a list of mobile phones and mobile broadband packages that fit your needs. So, now, you can choose a handsets based on what you want, on how the handset looks, or how you like the feel of it, or the fact it’s got a massive camera, or the fact that it plays back 93 billion different types of music. Or if you’re looking at mobile broadband, how it can run at speeds of 300 Megamassivemungabits per second!
You see, this is why you made all the important choices early on. This is why you did all the boring ‘what do I really need?’ stuff right at the start. You did it so that NOW, you can jump in and grab whatever mobile phones catch your eye, whatever mobile broadband package says, to you, ‘Buy me!’ And voila, before you know it, you’ll have bought the perfect deal!


Is 2FA via mobile phone still a good idea when phones are the most exposed device?

Everyone knows that two factors are better than one. My problem is that often the only second factor allowed is text messages to your mobile phone. This creates two concerns:

1) I travel frequently overseas and lose access to 2FA accounts any time the associated SIM card can’t touch a network.

2) Your phone is inherently your least secured device. I install way more software and download way more files on my phone than anywhere else with much less ability to verify sources or control access. For example, nearly every app requests sweeping permissions to function correctly. Even apps that aren’t granted explicit permissions have been found to backdoor those permissions through google services.

I feel like linking my phone to sensitive accounts (such as banking) would actually make them more exposed to attack and more difficult to maintain legitimate access.

Problemas al usar CSS (style for phones)

tengo problemas con los widths, margin e etc, en el cual intento acomodar el espacio sobrado pero no sé con que css puedo solucionarlo, todo lo demás está bien.

    //Center page .page{margin: 0 15%;}  // Page right and left (width: px) .page > .left{width: 400px;float: left;} .page > .right{width: 450px;float: left;}  // Box content .page .box-content{     background: #fff;     box-shadow: 0 2px 0 #eaeaea;     border-radius:4px;     padding: 5px 4px;     border: 1px solid #eaeaea;     margin:0 0 10px 0;     width: 100%; }

Does Twitter now only function properly on Smart Phones?

I normally access my Twitter account on my iMac.

Videos have never worked for me on Twitter, but since this new Twitter appeared I find that now I can't see most of the photos posted & can't even see any photos I post myself.

Does this mean that from now on there is just no point in having a Twitter account unless you have a smart phone?

If so, it looks like I'll just have to close my account.

Seems wrong that you can spend a huge sum of money on a quality computer, only to find yourself…

SharePoint 2013 website does not scroll on Android phones

Our organization is using an on-prem version of SharePoint 2013 with a custom masterpage. We discovered that when using the combination of an Android phone with the Google Chrome browser to open our SharePoint 2013 website (, the page will load perfectly, but will not scroll.

I’ve researched online for potential solutions and had no luck. I was not the original designer of the masterpage and am trying unravel what they may have done that created this problem.

Any thoughts or suggestions is greatly appreciated!

Making other phones ring [on hold]

Since I believe that there is no non-technical way to do this, I believe it falls under Information Security as it is related to phreaking.

Scenario: I live in a big house and I often have to check several rooms to find a family member. Each room has a landline telephone in, totalling about 5 phones throughout the house.

Question: Is there a way I can make every phone in my house ring from a phone, so I can then speak to someone without running around the house trying to find them? I am hoping for a sort of internal intercom system.

Using a mobile phone and ringing my house is not possible and out of scope.

How can I access my android phone’s storage from another device using LAN

How can I access my android phone’s storage from another device such as android or PC using LAN?

With ES File Explorer, I used remote manager, but there I am to download files then I am able to use them. But I want such a system, by which I can stream my audio, video from my android device’s storage without downloading through LAN network.

Best way to exchange data from one to many nearby phones

I want to create an App where several people in close proximity with an android or ios phone can exchange a small amount of data with one person. So one person is the group leader, and (s)he transmits the name of the group to the other participants. I was thinking of using NFC but I have not been able to find out if iphones can transmit a value (it seems they can now read NFC tags – but I have not seen any examples of writing that data). I could use QR codes (so the leader shows the QR image and the others scan that image). Or I believe there are blue-tooth and wifi options. But I want it to be a very simple action – so turning on bluetooth/wifi and connecting sound like they are too long-winded. Any alternatives, suggestions?
