Jennifer Willis is one of those people who always checks her bills carefully. And her vigilance seems to have uncovered yet another scam that we need to be wary of. On her latest mobile telephone bill from Optus, she found she had been charged for an SMS advertisement that had been sent, unsolicited, to her […]

Expactica.com reports that Dutch director Aryan Kaganof (Space, Alles Goed — I dunno that one either) has made a movie shot via mobile phone! Wicked! There’s a few more sentences about the project: Here.
Muzagga who runs About Moblogging (and also www.mobilblogg.net) read Alfie’s comments about three.co.uk’s My Gallery moblogging service which I posted earlier. Muzagga wrote this defence (though he also agrees with much of what Alfie asserted). I hope, at some point, in the next 100 years, a network operator reads their comments and decides to act!
I’ve been using www.jajah.com all afternoon for calling people. I’ve run up a bill of 14 pence! It’s wickedly good quality — plus there’s something about typing in the phone number and hitting the ‘call ‘ button on the web. I love it. It then phones you and the other party. No pesky dialing.
Madison Avenue needs to figure out emerging media — fast — or lose billions of dollars to someone who will, warned one of the nation’s top marketing executives. Ad Age Daily: Link
Interfax reports that Nokia did EUR3.4 billion / USD4.1 billion in sales in the mainland China market in 2005, making China the biggest single market for Nokia.
This isn’t a new innovation — it’s been around for a good few months. I signed up for My Gallery when it came out to give it a go, see what it was like. I’ve used it a few times. It’s simple to use: You just text your image to shortcode 3333 and it’s written […]
Why don’t I see anything cool like this when I’m walking about in London? Wicked! Check out the image: http://www.flickr.com/photos/shimmertje/95150910/ No idea how reliable or accurate it is Looks pretty accurate if you rate m-travel’s story from 2001: Here .. and then assume the trials went really well and the service is now fully operational. […]
This is a pretty nifty offer particularly while 3g data cards are still quite new. I think it’s a good deal for both www.dabs.com and Vodafone. Here’s how it works: Buy a laptop from Dabs (that has a PCMCIA slot to take the 3g card). Dabs are pitching the entry level £429 ex VAT Acer […]
Not strictly about SMS this posting, more about VOIP than anything else. I got this primarily from the PhoneAddict blog (http://phoneaddict.blogspot.com/) and then had a look for some other opinions. Jajah is billed by some as a Skype killer. Or David vs Goliath. Not sure about this — as I think they’re addressing a slightly […]
I was reading Nick Starr’s blog where he laments the idiot rules that T-mobile USA stand by. He wanted to swap from his Sidekick (with unlimited texting on that plan) to using his RAZR phone (also on T-mobile, but without an unlimited texting plan). Obviously T-mobile aren’t allowing him to swap or carry over minutes. […]
Duvall, who is annoyed in class by ringing cell phones, has no complaints about texting and he doesn’t think that his professors do either. "They have to see people playing with their phone, but they don’t seem to mind as long as there’s no noise," Duvall said. Not everyone’s impressed at in-class texting though, as […]
