Samsung's latest phones are the company's best ever
Fewer smartphone rivalries are more intense than that
between Apple and Samsung. Both companies dominated
the smartphone space in 2015, with Samsung’s phones
accounting for roughly 22% of the global market and
Apple’s nabbing just over 16%, according to IDC.
Samsung’s latest contenders are sure to keep the rivalry
hot. The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge pack several
improvements over their predecessors, like a better
camera, improved hardware design and water resistance.
Here’s a look at five features found in the Galaxy S7 that
aren’t on the iPhone.
1. Launch the camera by double tapping the home button
On Samsung’s newer phones, you can double press the
home button to launch the camera. This, Samsung claims,
lets users launch the camera in less than a second.
Apple doesn’t have the same shortcut, but you can launch
the camera quickly from the home screen by tapping on
the camera icon in the lower right corner.
2. Take clearer low-light photos without using flash
One of the Galaxy S7’s biggest improvements compared
to its predecessors is the ability to take better images in
dim conditions. Samsung has increased the size of the
pixels in its camera sensor, which lets it take in more light.
I found this to be true. A picture shot in a dark bar looked
brighter and less grainy when taken on the Galaxy S7
versus the iPhone 6s Plus. That being said, Apple also
has its own methods of improving photography in poorly
lit situations. The iPhone 6s is capable of using the
phone’s screen as a flash when taking photos with the
front-facing camera, for instance.
3. Make a payment using your phone without NFC
Most mobile payment systems, including Apple Pay, rely
on a technology called Near Field Communication (NFC) to
connect your smartphone to a payment terminal. While
NFC support is becoming more common in the retail
world, it’s still not everywhere.
Samsung Pay, however, can be used with almost any
payment terminal. That means it works just about
anywhere credit cards are accepted regardless of whether
or not the cash register supports NFC.
4. Charge your phone without plugging it in
Like many Android smartphones, Samsung’s Galaxy S7
and Galaxy S7 can be charged wirelessly. Rather than
plugging the phone into an outlet, users can rest the
device on a charging pad to replenish its battery.
The type of wireless technology built in to Samsung’s
newest phones (and the Galaxy S6) is made to work with
just about any charging mat available. Although some
tinkerers have developed workarounds that allow wireless
charging on the iPhone, the feature is not officially
5. Add extra storage space
Users who store hours worth of movies, TV shows, and
music on their mobile devices will appreciate this feature.
Galaxy S7 owners can add more storage space to their
device by popping in a new microSD card. Both phones
support up to 200GB in extra storage space.
This was copied from a Time.com article.
The features number 2,4 and 5 make sense for me.
Number 1 is not enough reason. I know some tecno
phones whose camera comes on without you even doing
anything. I mean nothing whatsoever. So it's not a
Am in Warri Nigeria, number 3 feature can as well be
removed and they should pay me the fee for that. I might
never use it... Not because I don't wish to, but I may
never have the opportunity.
Still trying to figure out how number 4 will work. I swear I
will be charging my phone with my neighbor's electric
connection... Them go pay bill tire.

Samsung's latest phones are the company's best ever
Wednesday, 30 December 2015
Despite a suit in court, the Federal Government
yesterday insisted that mobile giant MTN must pay the
N780billion fine imposed on it by the Nigerian
Communications Commission (NCC) latest tomorrow.
The government has also engaged a five-man team of
Senior Advocates to defend the sanction in court.
The Ministry of Communications made the
clarifications against the backdrop of fears of whether
or not the government will stay action on the imposition
of the fine.
MTN was punished for managing improperly registered
5.2m Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) Cards.
A top official said: “The fact that MTN has gone to
court does not amount to a stay of the fine. We have
not got any order restraining the Federal Government
from collecting the fine.
“An application before a court does not amount to the
nullification of the sanction or a stay of action.”
The Special Assistant to the Minister of
Communications, Victor Oluwadamilare, who spoke
exclusively with our correspondent, said there was no
going back on the deadline.
He said the government will enforce the fine by
He said: “Sequel to the suit filed by MTN, a team of
very senior eminent lawyers has been put together to
defend the interest of the Federal Government. I have
on good authority that the lawyers have filed an
objection to the MTN suit on diverse grounds.
“The suit is however without prejudice to the powers of
NCC to enforce the fine clamped on MTN in line with
the relevant provisions of the NCC Act.
“If ex-President Goodluck Jonathan had tackled the
hydra-headed corruption monster and crass
inefficiency in all spheres of governance like President
Muhammadu Buhari is presently doing, the MTN saga
would not have happened, not to talk of MTN’s
audacity to go to court over a clear case of gross
misconduct of trading 5.2million lines illegally in clear
contravention of NCC’s guidelines.
“It seems that the MTN is still under the illusion of the
permissible era of the Jonathan’s administration where
anything goes. President Buhari’s government remains
a purposeful and result-driven administration that
brooks no nonsense and will not tolerate underhand
“The leadership of the Communication sector under
Minister Adebayo Shittu, whose character and integrity
are impregnable, has remained focussed to ensure
things are done differently for the country to achieve
unprecedented success as envisioned by President
“This will serve as deterrent to other telecoms
operators in Nigeria. Nigerians are tired of poor
service, Nigerians deserve the best and we will stop at
nothing to do that.”
The NCC explained how MTN committed infractions
and its neglect of warnings.
It said: “The fine that was imposed on MTN was the
second within two months after the operators were
given a seven-day ultimatum to deactivate all
unregistered and improperly registered Subscriber
Identification Module (SIM) Cards. While others
complied, MTN did not.
“On August 4, 2015, at a meeting of all the
representatives of the Mobile Network Operators
(MNO), with NCC, major security challenges through
preregistered, unregistered and improperly registered
SIM Cards topped the agenda after which Operators
were given the ultimatum to deactivate such within
“On August 14, 2015, three days after the ultimatum
expired, NCC carried out a network audit, while other
Operators complied with the directive, to deactivate the
improperly registered SIM Cards, MTN showed no sign
of compliance at all.
“Please recall that four (4) Operators; MTN, Airtel,
Globacom and Etisalat, were sanctioned in August for
non compliance of the directive to deactivate the
improperly registered SIM Cards. MTN got a fine of
N102.2million, Globacom N7.4million, Etisalat
N7million and Airtel N3.8million fine. Others complied
while MTN flouted the fine.
“Based on the report of the compliance Audit Team, an
Enforcement Team which visited MTN from September
2 – 4, 2015 wherein MTN admitted that the Team
confirmed that 5.2million improperly registered SIM
Cards were still left active on their network; hence, a
contravention of the regulations was established.
“Consistent with the Commission’s enforcement
process, MTN was, by a letter dated October 5, 2015,
given notice to state why it should not be sanctioned in
line with the Regulations for failure to deactivate
improperly registered SIM Cards that were found to be
active at the time of enforcement team’s visit of
September 15, 2015.
“On October 19, 2015, the Commission received and
reviewed MTN’s response and found no convincing
evidence why it should not be sanctioned for the
“Accordingly, by a letter dated October 20, 2015 the
Commission conveyed appropriate sanctions to MTN in
accordance with Regulations 20(1) of the Telephone
Subscribers Registration Regulation 2011, to pay the
Sum of N200,000.00 only for each of the 5.2million
improperly registered SIM Cards.”
The statement said all stakeholders in the industry
were part of the registration of telephone subscribers in
It said: “In order to ensure proper identification of
telephone subscribers with their biometric data and in
line with international best practice, the Commission
came up with a framework for the registration of
telephone subscribers in Nigeria. (Nigerian
Communications Commission Registration of
Telephone Subscribers Regulations 2011).
“The above Regulations were developed with the full
participation of all key industry stakeholders, including
all Mobile Network Operators (MNO) in 2011.
“The Commission on its part has a statutory
responsibility to monitor and enforce compliance to the
rules. More so, when national security is at stake.”
The statement explained that National interest is
paramount because when lives are lost they cannot be
“As a responsible Regulator, the NCC will not stand by
and watch Rules and Regulations for Engagement being
flouted by any Operator.
“The Commission has adopted a smart regulation in its
oversight function in the industry, hence it has always
weighed the implications of sanctions, that is why it
had to place the appropriate sanction accordingly.”
The NCC statement further said that sanctions are the
last resort after all overtures fail but this does not in
any way undermine Industry Standards and the interest

, thats why it comes with a travel charger kit but to many of us living in area where there is outage of power supply this means big so tag along,
To save battery, first we look at what eats up our battery and that is;
4) Authomatic Sychronisation
5) Background Running Apps e.t.c.
Obviously everything we do on the phone eats up our battery even when not in use, it still eats up our battery, so whats the solution.
All well and good, enjoy the rest of your battery till it completely dies off, charge it before that happens and also remember to turn on all necessary apps and functionality after charging it. NOTE that your battery needs to be drain off of all charges by using it till the last drop for the battery to last long, the battery also needs sleep too.

This is an update from the previous post
Here are the top feature to look out for before buying
anywhere smartphone worldwide.
Price And Budget
Not everyone has like to spend much on smartphones, so
you might want to think of buying a smartphone with fair
Durability come first because it is the lifespan of any
gadgets or device.
You don't want to buy a smartphone today to only to find
yourself shopping for another three months later or less.
When ever your buying any gadgets always check for the
warranty whih is usually twelve months and above.
There are many operating system out there, from java to
symbian to android etc am guessing this is not your first
time shopping for a phone so you probably know what
operating system you desire.
This depend solely on the kind of iso your fancy, for me its
Its good to buy a smartphone with amazing battery like the
new Gionee flagships that come with a whooping 4000, and
up to 6000 mAh battery, wow just imagine how long that will
This to me is the mean feature we should look up for when
buying or shopping for a smartphone.
Its simple the bigger the RAM the the lesser your phone will
Everyone hates a smartphone that is slow, so if you are on
the same page with me dont ever go for phone with small
The minimum RAM size I recommend is 512 RAM and
above. Trust me I have use android phone with low RAM
size and you won't find it funny when your phone starts
lagging or don't play something gaming apps.
photo credit smashing magazine
What's a smartphone without good camera. If you are the
kind that like to capture memorable moments you don't
alway have to do it with a digital camera.
The minimum camera mp I recommend is 5mp and above,
but if you are not satisfied with that dont worry there are
smartphones with mp up to 24mp like the Sony Xperia
photo credit techrange
How does it feel when your are playing games or streaming
a video on an android device with a large screen, cool right?
If you are the kind that enjoys the features above *gaming
and video streaming* you would want to opt-in to buying
smartphones with large screens sizes.
Who doesn't like fast internet access, make sure you check
whether the device is 4G enabled.
Skip this if you are not looking for a 4G enabled device.
Smartphone With The Longest Battery Life At The Most Affordable Price is Coming To Nigeria This Month
A little bird just told me that TECNO is planning to release a smartphone with 5000mAh battery . The month of November is going to witness a lot of releases of smartphones in Nigeria but you will be surprised and wowed at the insanely cheap price this phone is going to be sold. And with the large fans base of Tecno mobile which now controls 50% of the African mobile market, you can be sure this will sell in droves.
It's codenamed L5 and it would run on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It is also equipped with a 4.5” IPS Touch Screen . Remember Tecno L series always come with not only huge batteries but also good battery life
It does seem like TECNO is coming for companies like GIONEE but with a 4.5” screen, it’s bound to be even more long lasting, more affordable and portable compard to the bulky Gionee M series which have kept the battery life junkies happy in the past. Get prepared this smartphone is gorgeous in design and you gonna love it. More images coming soon
With a form factor like the L5, I’m almost certain you could get 2 to 3 days of usage, no matter what you do with this thing, be it any combination of social media, browsing, gaming, calling, messaging, photo or video capturing, you name it.
You can bet TECNO is ready to own the low end smartphone market.

Ever wondered how you can speed up your phone’s charging
speed and make it charge as though it has fast charge
I’ll show you how. If your device charges slowly, then this
article will be very useful to you.
How To Charge Your Android Phone 50% Faster
Are you going out soon but your phone is
about to die and you really can’t be late, so what do you do?
Whether you have an iPhone or an Android, simply turn
Airplane Mode on and plug your phone. And feel the magic!!
Your phone charges almost twice as fast in Airplane Mode ,
meaning by the time you’re ready to go out, it’ll be fully
For game addict, please dont try this or else you will get
yourself a dozen of batteries.
When people develop self-hatred over a brand, they tend to
easily believe negative things about the brand which forms a
a belief system that’s passed across to several persons.
No matter how you look at it, purchasing a Tecno
smartphone doesn’t make you any less important than
people who go for the big guns; the likes of iPhone, HTC and
Despite this established fact, you begin to wonder why there
are tens of thousands of people who will catch a cold at the
mention of the brand Tecno.
Short answer – It’s because they have fallen for the myth
that Tecno smartphones are a ridiculous excuse for being a
Sadly, if you have fallen for any of these myths, then
chances are you have missed a couple of things that users
So what exactly are these myths? Although there are pretty
numerous , allow me to share with you 4 of the most
common ones mobile lovers fall for.
1. Tecno Smartphones Are Bad Because There’re Made In
No doubt, we hear this boring phrase every time and those
who want to take a jab at users of the product shot them
with the phrase – Tecno na chinko.
Don’t Miss: Tecno Is Loosing The Smartphone War In
Nigeria To Gionee?
While it’s entirely true that Tecno is China based, it doesn’t
make the product any less durable. It would shock you to
know that most major mobile vendors, including Apple has
manufacturing plants in China and most of the products
coming to Africa especially Nigeria are made in China.
2. Tecno Smartphones Are Just “A Piece Of Cheap Plastic”
Again, Tecno products are entirely made of plastic, only
recently did the Chinese OEM start producing smartphones
with leather shell and metal casing, better late than never.
However, Tecno’s decision to stick with “cheap plastic” in
the past does makes a whole of sense considering the fact
that they control a market whose users are predominantly
“low budget earners.”
It is a known fact that the highly rated Samsung Galaxy S
series (up to the Galaxy S5) are made with a “cheap” plastic
shell. Also, two years ago, the World’s most valuable brand
Apple designed a line of iPhone in Plastic casing and no one
gave a hoot about it, though it was an embarrassing flop.
So you hate plastic casing as much as I do? The newly
released Tecno Phantom 5 is your answer.
3. Saturation Of The Market With Same Phones In Different
Now, this is hilarious because it makes little or no sense to
believe that Tecno is the only mobile vendor guilty of this
No mobile vendor has released phones in equal succession
like Nokia and before it was acquired and dumped by
Microsoft, no one saw the mass production of phones as a
problem. Shouldn’t Tecno be given that same privilege
considering also, that the China based company isn’t
anywhere near Samsung in mass production of
Someone affirmed that Samsung doesn’t know the number
of smartphones they have put up in the market. Although,
there is no way to test the validity of such a claim, but it
does makes Tecno a learner in the act of mass production
Don’t Forget: 4 Costly Mistakes That Forced Nokia Out Of
The Smartphone Race
4. Tecno Leaves A Fault In Their Device, So They Can Sell
The Next One
A lot of tech savvy users believe buying a Tecno
Smartphone is as good as buying a product that’s dead on
arrival (DOA). The myth that device malfunctioning only
exist on the Tecno brand is not only ridiculous but
No responsible company would design a product with a
deliberate fault, with Tecno’s resolve to create a brand that
would give other competitors sleepless nights, it’s unlikely
the China based company would trade its long term vision
for a premeditated engineering and design blunder.
The recently lunched Tecno Camon C8 and Phantom 5
proves Tecno is gradually becoming a brand without limits.
Most of the flaws we highlighted earlier were carefully
corrected and for the first time, I was impressed by Tecno’s
design concept on its 2015 flagship concept.
A lot of pundits have said several negative things about
Tecno but with the company’s latest mobile policy of
releasing top-of-the line smartphones and dumping “cheap”
plastic casing for good, a lot more people could change
their perception about the China based company who
dramatically played a vital role in fostering the transition of
feature phones to smartphones in Nigeria.
Are you guilty of having fallen for any of these myths? If you
are, then it’s high time you snapped out of it and crank up
yourself to go get a Tecno phone. What do you think?
Windows 10 is finally here, bringing the familiar desktop back
to the forefront and introducing new treats like Cortana, the
virtual assistant, and Edge, the browser that will finally erase
those bad memories of Internet Explorer. Wondering how to
get in on the goodness? Don’t worry. It’s easy—and if you’re
an existing Windows 7 or 8 user, it’s free.
First, you need to make sure your device meets Windows 10’s
minimum requirements, which it should, because they’re not
all that strenuous. You just need a 1GHz processor, 1GB of
RAM (or 2GB for 64-bit), and 20GB of free disk space. Forget
your PC; other than the storage, even most phones measure up.
All set? Great. From there it’s varying degrees of easy, mostly
depending on whether you reserved your upgrade already.
If you already reserved your Windows 10 upgrade: Good news!
Upgrade files may already have discreetly downloaded onto
your PC. Just look for the notification that says your upgrade is
ready, and run the installer. The whole process should take
between 20 and 60 minutes, depending on your rig.
If you haven’t reserved your Windows 10 upgrade yet: Look to
your system tray for a “Get Windows 10” icon. From there, you
can either reserve an upgrade (Windows 10 will roll out over
the next few weeks, so not everyone can get it day one), or go
ahead and schedule an install if your device already qualifies.
When your magic moment arrives, in the form of a notification
from Microsoft, go ahead and run the installer.
If you want to skip the line: Both of the above methods will
work eventually, but they’re also dependent on waiting for
Microsoft to anoint your device. Lucky for you, there’s an easy
shortcut available. First, head here to download Microsoft’s
Media Creation Tool (under “Select Edition” choose “Windows
10” and click “Confirm”). Launch it, select “Upgrade this PC,”
and click “Next.” From there, just sit back and relax; you’ll be
basking in Windows 10 before you know it.
As always, it’s smart to back up your system ahead of time.
And maybe most importantly, remember that the free upgrade
offer only lasts a year; if you wait until July 30 of 2016, you’re
going to have to pay up.

NetGuard is a free application for devices running Android 5.0 or up that allows you to control which app may send or receive data.
It is difficult usually to find out what applications do on mobile devices as you are limited in terms of what you can run on the device to track usage.
While you can set up a monitoring solution to overcome this, most users probably don’t as it is not easy.
There are plenty of reasons why you may want to control the apps connecting to the Internet. Privacy comes to mind for example, as you can prevent apps from leaking data for example or block advertisement this way from being displayed in the app.
Other benefits include saving data by blocking applications from using it, and saving battery.
Applications like the excellent NoRoot Firewall help in this regard as they let you control Internet access.
NetGuard requires no-root access or even the Internet permission, which means that you can run it on any device running Android 5 or higher. The app is very simple to use, open source, and ships without advertisement or tracking, or phone home functionality.
The app requires that you set it up as a VPN connection to control Internet traffic and provide you with its functionality. This is done by enabling it after you have launched the application on your device and accepting the prompt that is displayed on first run.
Basically, it directs all app traffic through the VPN connection it controls and blocks connections this way giving you full control of an apps’ connectivity.
It displays a list of user-installed and system applications that you can control connectivity afterwards. All system apps are highlighted in orange for better distinction. Each app is listed with its name and toggles to enable or disable WiFi and mobile data.
You will notice right away that everything is disallowed by default which means that apps running on your phone may stop functioning if they require Internet.
To enable mobile data or WiFi for an app simply tap on the symbol next to it to do so. You may want to enable Internet for a web browser for example among other applications.
The settings provide you with additional options. You may use them to enable WiFi or mobile data by default for all applications for instance, reset all rules to start anew, or enable the dark theme to replace the default theme.
All in all though, it is a simple application that gives you full control over an application’s Internet connectivity.
The one downside is that you cannot use a VPN connection at the same time you are running NetGuard.

Are you new to Android and looking for applications (apps) to
install? Or perhaps you’re not exactly new but would still love to
have a list of apps that will serve you excellently. Here are ten (10)
for you to start with:
1. Whatsapp: WhatsApp has become so universal that if you are
not using it, you are missing out. It is the new SMS. But it is SMS
on fleek. You can set up Groups e.g. for your family, inner clique,
or even to provide tutorials to a class or to run an online seminar.
2. Instagram: Want to get in on the new narcissism and show off
your selfies and photos of the things that matter to you? Instagram
is what the doctor ordered.
3. Flash share (Xender): If you share files a lot across different
devices, Flash Share does it fastest. Bluetooth doesn’t even come
close. Flash Share also lets you share your mobile internet access
with other users in your group, so you can forget about WiFi hotspot
4. Evernote: Evernote is an awesome work tool that lets you create
and edit text notes, snap and save photos, attach documents for
easy access across devices and to share with others. You can set
up reminders too. One of the best features of Evernote for me is
the ability to save a webpage I am reading for later reference. And
now, there’s a Work Chat feature that improves your team
collaboration. You can stay logged into your account on multiple
5. Boom player: This music player gives you access to a huge
library of music from Nigerian artistes. Want to stream or
download? Your choice. The app also lets you access the lyrics to
playing songs, as well as edit the meta details of each music file.
Priceless. But Boom Player does more than just music. It supports
video streaming/download as well. With TECNO Own The Stage
karaoke show going on right now, those who miss it on DSTV don’t
have to miss out totally. Watch it for free on BOOM player.
6. Pocket casts: This is a versatile podcast player. You can set it to
auto-download podcasts while you sleep, you can speed up
playback, and you can share your lists, among other cool features.
7. Google keep: If you do not like the business-like nature of
Evernote, you should consider Keep. In is not as comprehensive,
but the interface is breezier and certainly more colourful. With
Keep, you can record voice notes, draw up your shopping list, write
notes, and even add photos. You can set up location-based
reminders so you get beeped when you are about driving through or
past your favourite store or market.
8. Buffer: Buffer app allows you to schedule your tweets and
Facebook updates for publishing at specified times later. It is great
for people who work with social media. The app is free, but
requires some payment for usage at some point.
9. Sunrise Calendar app: has been described by some as the first
great calendar app for Android. It syncs with Google Calendar,
Exchange, iCloud, Facebook, Evernote, Foursquare, TripIt, Todoist,
Trello and more to make sure you’re always up to date with all the
events happening in your life. If you want a very comprehensive
calendar app for all your calendar/reminder services, this is it.
10. Endomondo: Are you team fitfam? Endomondo is a good app to
help with your goal of keeping trim and fit.
You would have noticed that I left out twitter and Facebook. That is
deliberate, as they usually come pre-installed on most Android
smartphones. Have you discovered/installed any new apps
recently? Do share five (5) of them with us. Perhaps you would
also love to share your five (5) most used apps.
There are millions of games on playstore and even more than.
There is always this problem of you downloading a game of 1gb
with your hardearned subscription, only to discover that the game

freaks) to become tired of downloading, and wait for sum1 to do
Majority of android users always have games like, jetpack ride,
temple run, zuma etc well dis games can be sumtimes/mostly
boring epecially for the guys.
Below is a list of games that i believe you would love to play.
1.Grand theft auto(gta) series
5.Batman arkham origins

5 THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave
emergencies. . Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or
an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can
do with it:
FIRST: Emergency The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile
If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile;
network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will
search any existing network to establish the emergency number
for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialled even if
the keypad is locked. Try it out...
SECOND: Have you locked your keys in the car? Does your car
have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday.
Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car
and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their
mobile phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the
person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the
mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock.
Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is
no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can
reach someone who has the other ' remote ' for your car, you can
doors (or the trunk)...
Editor ' s Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our
car over a mobile phone! THIRD: Hidden Battery Power Imagine
your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys
*3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the
instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.
This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next
time. FOURTH: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone? To check
your Mobile phone ' s serial number, key in the following digits on
your phone: * # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique
to your handset..
Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get
stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this
code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the
thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally
You probably won ' t get your phone back, but at
least you know that whoever stole it can ' t use/sell it either. If
everybody does this, there would be no
point in people stealing mobile phones. FIFTH : ATM - PIN Number
Reversal - Good to Know
If you should ever be forced by a robber to
withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can
notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse.
For example, if your pin number is 1234,
then you would put in 4321. The ATM system recognizes that your
PIN number is
backwards from the ATM card you placed in the
machine. The machine will still give you the money
you requested, but unknown to the robber, the
police will be immediately dispatched to the
location. This information was recently broadcast on CTV by
Crime Stoppers however it is seldom used because
people just don't know about it...... Please pass this
along to everyone.
This is the kind of information people don't mind
receiving, so pass it on to your family and friends.
