Mobile Phones: 4 Innovative Companies & Organizations

Did you know that there are nearly seven billion cell phone subscriptions? This means that there’s almost one cell phone subscription for everyone on the planet. In fact, cell phones are more accessible than toilets. While you may think you know everything there is to know about mobile phones, there are likely several companies you haven’t heard of that offer valuable mobile phone advice and services. Here’s a quick look at the top 4 companies you need to know about.

1) Gizmogul

You’ve probably heard of companies that let you trade your old devices for cash, but what about trading them for charity donations? Gizmogul specializes in providing cash for cell phones, with a portion of the proceeds being given to charities. You can even choose for all of your phone’s proceeds to be given to a charity. And if you’re looking to buy a phone, Gizmogul can help you purchase one that meets your needs, and when making the purchase, you can feel good knowing that part of the money being spent is going to a charity.

2) KnowRoaming

Did you know that a little sticker could save you enormous amounts of money on roaming fees? Yep, that’s right! KnowRoaming provides its customers with a sticker that goes on their SIM cards in their phones. When using the phones at home, normal carrier rates apply. However, when traveling abroad, the sticker activates itself and the phones switch to the KnowRoaming network, which provides cheap roaming rates. Remember, prior to using it – you’ll need to unlock your phone first.

3) Cell Phones for Soldiers

One of the best ways to support our beloved freedom is by joining the Armed Forces. Another great way is by making sure that each soldier has a reliable way of communicating with their loved ones back home, and this is the goal that Cell Phones for Soldiers strives to achieve. The organization focuses on collecting funds and phones to give to soldiers who are both overseas and at home. You can either sell your phone to the organization or donate it for free. It’s a win-win for everyone.

4) Free Government Cell Phones

The Free Government Cell Phones organization specializes in providing valuable information related to helping people in need find free phones and free carrier services. When it comes to being a go-to source for all things relating to free phones, this is the organization you want to contact. There are literally hundreds of programs that offer free phones and service, and Free Government Cell Phones can help you connect with the correct service provider. And even better is that the organization can help you become a government phone program sales representative, with the potential of earning more than $1,000 a week.

Blackberry Unlocking Tutorial

One of the most popular phones brand on the market today is still BlackBerry. The versatile cell phones from BlackBerry boasts a wide-range of features, including Internet access, appointment scheduling, and still for most of their phones the physical keyboard…  But as with any type of phone, it’s only good if it can work on your local carriers. If your BlackBerry is locked, then you’ll want to take the time to have it unlocked. Fortunately, there’s a six-step process you can follow to unlock your BlackBerry.

Step 1: Identify your Unlock Code

First, you’ll need to identify your unlock code, and to do this you’ll need your phone’s IMEI number.

  • On a BlackBerry 10, click the Advanced tab under the phone’s Settings.
    A dropdown menu should include a Hardware Tab. Click it and you’ll see your IMEI number.
  • On a BlackBerry 6, 7, 8 or 9 you need to click Device under the Options menu.
    Now click Device Status Information, and you can find your IMEI.
  • If you have a BlackBerry 5 or earlier version, simply click Status under the Options menu, and you’ll see your IMEI.

Or simply phone this number *#06# with your keypad.

Step 2: Call, chat online or visit your carrier in person 

Now you will need to contact your carrier; most will unlock it for free if your contract is up.  Tell them you would like to unlock your phone and that you already have the phone’s IMEI number.  If your contract with the carrier is not up, then you may have to take a different route of getting your phone unlocked.

Step 3: Taking an alternative route

If your carrier refuses to give you an unlock code, you can always pay a third-party service provider for one. Before choosing a third-party service provider.  The provider will need your phone’s IMEI number, and although receiving the unlock code may take up to three days, in most cases, it only takes a few hours.

Step 4: Entering you unlock code

Once you have your unlock code, you’ll need to go to your phone’s Settings and select the Security and Privacy tab.  Then click on SIM Card and scroll down until you see Unlock Phone.  Click this tab and enter your code, followed by clicking on OK.  Do keep in mind that you have only 10 attempts to enter the number or otherwise your phone will be disabled.

Step 5: Entering your unlock code on a BlackBerry 7

On a BlackBerry 7, all network connections must be disabled before entering your unlock code.  To turn off these connections, go to Manage Connections and turn off WiFi and mobile networks.

Then go to your SIM Card menu and type “MEPD.”  A new menu will pop up and your Network should appear as Active.  If you have a 71xx, 81xx, 91xx model, instead of typing “MEPD,” you’ll need to type “MEPPD.”

Now type “MEP[Alt]2”.  You may then have to type “MEP[Alt]4” if nothing happens.  Remember that pressing the Alt key is suggested so that you can type numbers.  For 71xx, 81xx, and 91xx models, you will instead need to type “MEPP[Alt]2” or “MEPP[Alt]4”.

At this point, you will now enter your unlock code.  Fortunately, you have 255 tries, so it’ll be hard to mess up entering your code the right way.  Once you have entered it correctly, insert your new SIM card.  You can then re-enable your network connections to.

Step 6: Entering your unlock code on a BlackBerry 6 or older version

Simply remove the old SIM card and replace it with the new one.  Turn the phone back on and enter your unlock code

Key Benefits to Unlocking Your Mobile Device

Unlocked mobile devices represent a large sector of the communication industry, and unlocked phones are perhaps one of the most effective devices for expanding the reach of communication for many people… Unlocked phones have been the topic of many debates in the U.S. Congress, who voted to permanently allow the unlocking of cell phones. People tend to think of unlocked phones as something that people want for the sole purpose of escaping contracts or obligations to their carrier. However, unlocked phones are actually used for several other purposes. Unlocked phones have been used as a vital part of Women’s Protective Services; they enable a larger geographic area to use a given phone; and they improve the global economy.

Women’s Protective Services

Unlocked mobile devices, particularly cell phones, are used to help women leave abusive, dangerous situations. An unlocked mobile device gives women a tool to use in the event of an emergency. For example, an abusive spouse may be stalking a woman, and she can use the phone to notify emergency responders of anything that would make her unsure about her setting, such as leaving work with the spouse’s car nearby.

Reach a Larger Geographic Area

Although cell phone carriers tend to be located and provide service along areas with a high population density, millions of people live outside the reach of the major cell phone service providers. Unlocked phones give these people access to communication, which, in the case of illness, injury, or simply the passage of knowledge; can be a life-saving tool. An unlocked phone can be used on international carriers where the phone’s original carrier does not offer service, or it may be used to reduce the charges of using the phone abroad. Recycled phones are often unlocked and sent to areas of the world in need of modern communication. Furthermore, unlocked phones impact the global economy.

Unlocked Phones and the World Market

If a carrier had the right to nullify and make all phone unlocks illegal, it would devastate the world economy. Unlocked phones give people the option to switch carriers for a variety of reasons, including leaving carriers who charge exuberant fees, have a lack of geographic service, or for the need to move overseas. Not only do unlocked phones help the world market, but they actually increase the competitive efforts between providers, which helps ensure that the cost of using mobile devices stays minimal. If the competition did not exist, a dominant company would gain a monopoly and have unrestricted reasoning to increase prices beyond what most people could afford. This would spiral into the return to the age of the landline phones, and the production and use of cell phones would come to grinding halt.

The advancement of mobile technology has united the people of the world in ways never thought possible. Most cell phones have an initial lock placed on them by a carrier, but the need for effective two-factor communication between people around the world has contributed to the widespread practice of unlocking mobile devices. If the U.S. Government condones the process of unlocking mobile devices for the above mentioned reasons, what reason do you have for not ensuring your phone has access to communication on a global scale?
