  • Mobile phones rates double without warning
    than 120 a month Confusion over complicated rival tariffs and costs is the main reason The punishing charges begin when customers speak for longer than the time agreed in their contract mobile phones The moment they cross over the limit the rate instantly doubles and in some cases triples without warning Youngsters in particular are running up huge bills because they don t check when they have reached their limit The survey by mobile phone price comparison service www OneCompare com reveals that most customers agree to pay the operator around 20 for 100 minutes But more than one in three talk for longer and send more texts than their agreed limit With around 35 million adults and 6 million children using mobiles these extra minutes are said to earn the operators 132 million every month Vodafone which made 10 3 billion profit last year has a cross network anytime tariff of 16 a month for 75 minutes of calls But if customers talk for double that they receive a bill for 46 because the excess rate rises from 21p per minute to 40p a minute O2 s 100 tariff costs 25 a month for 100 minutes worth of calls and 100 text messages But if users spend just 20 minutes longer talking and send 50 extra texts in that month their bill rises from 25 to 39 If they were to talk for 200 minutes instead of 100 and send 200 texts instead of 100 their 25 bill would more than triple to 77 Pay as you go customers are not affected by the charges and contract users could switch to a more suitable tariff but there are more than 250 tariffs to choose from Operators have been accused of making the system so baffling that customers rarely switch

  • Mobile phones roaming rates are unfair

  • Mobile phones to scream when stolen
    Sony Ericsson K850i Sony Ericsson K800i Sony Ericsson K750i Mobile phones to scream when stolen Tue 03 Oct 2006 A UK firm is hoping a cell phones security system it has developed which sets off a high pitch scream permanently locks the handset and wipes all data if stolen will halt the spiralling rise in phone theft The Remote XT technology designed to make phones unusable and therefore worthless if they are stolen works by installing software onto the operating system of the phone which is then activated via a call to a call centre once users realise their phone has been snatched or lost The phone is then remotely disabled all the data held on the device is wiped and a high pitched screech is triggered Although taking the battery out temporarily disables the sound it activates once the battery has been replaced Data stored on the phone however is not lost when it s wiped from the system as the service includes daily remote backup so that it can be downloaded on to a new handset Mark Whiteman managing director of Remote XT said By making mobiles unusable to anyone but the rightful owner the phones become worthless and we ll see market for stolen handsets stamped out once and for all Theft proof phones spell disaster for the huge criminal industry that has profited from mobile theft for too long Although similar software has previously primarily aimed at business users as it only runs on Symbian or Windows Mobile Remote XT supports most mobile phones However a subscription costs an eyebrow raising 10 a month Perhaps mobile service providers should be encouraged to offer the technology in a package deal Related Mobile Phone articles Orange launches a Unique service Mon 25 Sep 2006 Sony Ericsson Launches Music

  • Mobiles not linked to cancer, says study
    not linked to cancer says study Thu 07 Dec 2006 A study carried out by the Institute of Cancer Epidemiology in Denmark and published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute has found out that cell phones don t trigger cancer Mobile phone antennas emit electromagnetic fields that can penetrate the human brain But the latest study of 420 000 users who had owned mobiles for up to 21 years Danish team has found no evidence that this was linked to an increased risk of tumours in the head or neck as had been feared It is estimated that more than 2 billion people worldwide use mobile phones The study included all Danes who first subscribed for mobile service between 1982 and 1995 and were followed through 2002 meaning some were tracked for two decades The researchers then compared their cancer incidence to the rest of Denmark s population but no evidence of any such risk was found Professor Tricia McKinney Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics University of Leeds said The results of this Danish cohort study are important as they have analysed data from mobile phone company records and do not rely on users remembering for up to 10 years in the past how often they used their phone The large numbers of subscribers in the study mean we can have some confidence in the results that have not linked mobile phone use to a risk of any cancer including brain tumours The authors of the study concluded We found no evidence for an association between tumor risk and cellular telephone use among either short term or long term users Moreover the narrow confidence intervals provide evidence that any large association of risk of cancer and cellular telephone use can be excluded Related Mobile Phone articles Samsung Launches
