Seemingly a rebadge of Alcatel’s Pop 3 released in 2015, the new Alcatel TRU comes off with a 5-inch scratch-resistant LCD display panel with a resolution of 480 x 854-pixel. It measures to a good 5.55 by 2.81 by 0.39 inches and weighs up to 5.89 ounces. This new unit features soft keys that users will definitely love.

Along with a compact body, the handset displays a minimal front display – with only a circular capacitive home button at the bottom, and the speaker and the selfie camera occupying the upper part of the screen. Going to the sides, Alcatel chose to retain the usual setup of the volume rocker and the power button at the right side of the device. More so for the main camera which is integrated at the rear of the unit with LED flash following it and the brand’s logo.

Great Phones We Unlock_HTC Desire 626s: Cover Photo

 

HTC has built a reputation over the years for its high-quality, premium looking smartphones. With that said, it won’t be a surprise if the brand will continue to add yet another impressive and affordable unit to continue the Desire lineup, which goes by the model name: HTC Desire 626s.

Design

Similar to the previous Desire units, HTC Desire 626s sports a premium look with the polycarbonate material that covers its body. More so, it allows a variety of dual tone color options that customers can choose from.

With regards to the handset’s details, the device’s sides include the volume rocker and the power button on the right, and the flap that shelters the MicroSD and SIM card slots on the left. At the upper part of the device is the headphone jack and at the bottom is the micro USB port. As usual, the front displays the speakers both at the upper and bottom part of the panel, and the front camera is located at the upper left corner just beside the speaker. Looking at the back of the device, there’s nothing new but the usual placement of the rear camera at the right corner with the LED flash just below it and the brand’s logo at the middle. The design’s pretty much similar to its predecessor and is proven to be user-friendly as well.

When it comes to the display panel, the HTC Desire 626s features a good 5-inch LCD display with 1280 by 720-pixel resolution. While the handset’s body allows the user a good grip given that it only measures up to 5.78 by 2.79 by 0.32 inches and weighs to 4.90 ounces. Given these specs, the design’s definitely one reason to go for the Desire 626s.

UnlockBase acquires Unlocking.com

One effective way to beat your competition is to buy them. This seems to be the strategy of Australian born USA based entrepreneur John Milton, CEO of UnlockBase, the largest cellphone unlocking site on the web. In the past month he has bought gsmliberty.net and now his latest acquisition is Unlocking.com.

Unlocking.com was founded by Irish entrepreneur John McLaughlin in 2002, and was originally known as uniquephones.com. The site was subsequently sold in May 2011 to Vietnam born, Australia based Nguyen Thuy Hoang. Mr. McLaughlin was among the first site owners to unlock Apple iPhones in 2007. Mr. Hoang has since diversified and has the exclusive right to sell MBAs from the UK in a number of Asian cities. Hoang bought the cellphone unlock site in 2011 but admits he struggled to make his investment profitable due to the complexity and ever evolving nature of the cellphone unlock industry.

Make no mistake, cellphone unlocking is a tough and fast moving business” explains Mr. Milton. “If you’re not right on top of what you are doing it simply won’t work for you. At UnlockBase we pride ourselves on having some of the best reverse engineers in the business as well as a fast and responsive customer service that is open 24/7 365 days a year, always with a human being present to help and quickly resolve problems.

Unlocking.com started out as a small project to allow users to “modify” their handsets. The site created tools to allow customers to change fonts, edit menu text, and change default clipart on their handsets for free. They then reverse engineered any Nokia handsets they could find. During this time the owners discovered all sorts of hidden data on the hand sets, including how they could be unlocked. In the winter of 2002 Unlocking.com was the first company in the world to offer phone unlock codes online. Within a few weeks the site was unlocking 8,000 handsets per hour, all for free. They only began charging users for unlocking in October 2004 and in the summer of 2006 they started to expand beyond Nokia.

Today Unlocking.com enjoys global reach aided by numerous online publications. The site has been featured in Google News, The Irish News, The Washington Post, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal as well as Polish, Norwegian and Austrian newspapers and magazines. This has resulted in an impressive 4 million unlock codes delivered to customers in 165 countries. The site supports several handsets from over 750 carriers worldwide.

John Milton indicated his potential interest in purchase Unlocking.com began as early 2013. Eventually Mr. Hoang reached the decision to sell after some three years and Mr. Milton managed to acquire it for a quarter of what Hoang bought it for 5 years earlier.

We will now absorb the Unlocking.com database into our own.” said Mr. Milton. “As with gsmliberty.net, we anticipate unlocking.com customers will be delighted with the service we can offer. We like to be competitively priced, quick to react, versatile and offer what we believe is the largest database of phones and service providers anywhere on the net. I admit it is hard for some smaller sites to compete with our product offering – but we have been doing this a long time – fully 15 years.

UnlockBase operates worldwide and frequently receives cellphone unlock requests from countries as small as Kiribati, or as wealthy as Kuwait. To assist customers, the site offers a full suite of online paying services. This is of great importance where customers live in countries without easy access to credit or debit cards.

UnlockBase.com acquires GsmLiberty.net

UB Software Ltd, owners of UnlockBase.com, one of the fastest growing remote cellphone unlock providers on the internet, has just acquired GsmLiberty.net. Founded in 2004, Delaware USA based gsmliberty.net offers a remote unlock GSM service.

Terrestrial GSM networks now cover more than 90% of the world’s population. GSM’s international roaming capability enables users to be accessed via the same mobile number in up to 219 countries worldwide. As with UnlockBase, GSMLiberty offers a solution to phone users wishing to break out of contracts with service providers.

Speaking of his decision to purchase the site, CEO of UB Software, Australia born, Caribbean based Mr. John Milton said: “We view the purchase of gsmliberty.net as exactly the right purchase for us at this time. The business is mature, well established and a big player, but we believe we can add an all-important extra dimension to the product with our high levels of customer service. We operate around the clock every day of the year, and we will not be beaten on price. This new acquisition will take our business to the next level in terms of scale and size.

Gsmliberty.net was built and developed singlehandedly as a start-up in 2004 by web developer, Montreal based Ghassan A. With a comprehensive background in product development, Mr. A. developed the site to a point where it had a customer base of half a million located throughout the world.

This is another aspect of the gsmliberty.net product offering that suits our business model perfectly” said Mr. Milton.

Like gsmliberty.net, we operate globally and we have developed systems to handle inquiries speedily and efficiently anywhere in the world. We are always ready to handle technical inquiries and customer service issues, and our customers are guaranteed they are always dealing with human beings, not robots. I am confident the purchase of gsmliberty.net will merge seamlessly into our existing business, and we are sure former customers of gsmliberty.net will be happy with the service we can offer.

UnlockBase offers the web’s largest database of mobile phones and service providers, spelling a quick, safe and cost effective exit for millions of customers worldwide locked into contracts they don’t want. Plans are already at an advanced stage to merge the gsmliberty.net customer base with that of UnlockBase.com.

A complete guide to blacklsited cell phones

Buying a used cellphone can be a great idea: you can save money, obtain an already unlocked phone, or buy a brand or a particular model you couldn’t otherwise afford. It sounds ideal, but unfortunately, buying a cellphone that is blacklisted can mean not only is your phone completely useless to you, you could potentially end up with a knock at the door from the police asking some difficult questions.

Think it can’t happen to you? In 2013 over 3.2 million cellphones were stolen in the United States alone, double the amount stolen in the previous year, so this is a fast growing problem. It means millions of cellphones are out there being advertised daily on online auction sites and listing sites around the world that could well be stolen, and you won’t know anything about it until you arm yourself with what to look for and what questions to ask.

Understanding your IMEI

Every mobile device in the world, whether it’s a cell phone or a tablet, has a unique serial number known as the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identifier). In a growing number of countries, operators enable consumers to report a mobile phone or device as lost or stolen using the device’s unique identity number, the IMEI.  The operator can block the phone from their mobile network, which is called IMEI blacklisting. Participating operators have an up to date Device Check database which contains the IMEI for devices reported as stolen or lost, as well as the device model and capabilities.

Groupe Speciale Mobile (GSM), established in 1982, defines the GSM standard as the internationally accepted digital cellular telephony standard. Global mobile connections now exceed some 10 billion connections, and as of 2015, exceeds the total population of the globe.

As a means of controlling this vast number of global connections, which is increasingly important in an age of international organized crime and terrorism, blacklisted IMEIs are provided to the GSMA central IMEI Database which allows operators to exchange data and to block devices on multiple networks both nationally and internationally.

How your IMEI is broadcast to the network

Each time you make a call your SIM card immediately identifies you as a subscriber to that particular carrier. If your account is in order, then you can make the call and use the services of your service provider. Before that can happen, however, the network will check your phone’s IMEI, which is a number that is unique to every GSM handset.

Like IMEI, Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) devices also use something similar called an Electronic Serial number, or ESN. The IMEI or ESN identifies the phone to your carrier and it checks that the handset is valid to use. If the phone is locked to another carrier or if it’s lost or stolen your service provider can use the IMEI to “blacklist” a device which means you won’t be able to make calls.

So for example, it’s the IMEI, and not your customer profile that lets a large carrier such as AT&T know that you are using an iPhone. Even if you switch to a different type of phone, a BlackBerry or an Android, your service provider will know which phone you are using. Even when you jailbreak a phone, your IMEI will still give your chosen service provider the information they need to know.

What happens when you discover you have a Blacklisted Phone?

Each time you switch your phone on or attempt to make a call, the network systems check the IMEI number of the handset you are using as soon as you insert a SIM card.

In the USA, the cellphone blacklist is operated by the CTIA, which works with leading cellphone providers including AT&T, Cellcom, Nex-Tech Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon Wireless to provide a vast database of blacklisted phones. They are also linked to the GSM IMEI database.

In the UK, when the SIM card is inserted, the IMEI number of your handset is cross referenced with the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR), which is also known as the IMEI database. If the IMEI number of your handset is on the CEIR/IMEI blacklist then the network will either refuse to send a signal to your phone (No signal strength at all or will supply a signal but will not allow any outgoing or incoming calls.

If your IMEI number is on the CEIR your handset is blacklisted and therefore of no use to you or anyone else except for spare parts.

Why are blacklisted phones still so prevalent?

Despite huge efforts by service providers and international cellphone network organizations to clamp down on stolen cellphones, inevitably the system has its shortcomings and criminals can still get around the blacklist database by sending blacklisted handsets overseas, which is why cellphone theft still tops the list of stolen items. It’s a crime worth billions every year to international organized crime syndicates. The so called petty criminal who pickpockets your handset while you gaze into a shop window could be passing the phone on as his part in a global crime syndicate. Also, IMEI’s can in some circumstances be changed or rewritten. Don’t be tempted to try it, it’s against the law and will result in a jail term, but it still goes on.

Another major reason criminals want to get hold of your cellphone is not just to sell it on the international market, it’s the chilling fact that while 77% of users use their cellphones for online banking transactions, less than a quarter of these have any type of security on their phones! Accessing sensitive banking details on an unprotected cellphone is much easier than robbing a bank!

There are also several examples of incomplete data with all of the blacklist databases because the submitting of details is still voluntary. For example, a handset that is barred in the USA could still work in Mexico and vice versa, and a cellphone bought or stolen in the UK can work in a different country. A large number of UK barred handsets find their way to Italy, Spain and France.

Unlocking VS Unblocking a Cell Phone

There is an important difference between unlocking and unblocking a cell phone. Unlocking a cellphone from a service provider to be able to choose another is perfectly legal, but when a mobile phone is “unblocked” criminals can change the IMEI number and make the cellphone operational again. This practice is illegal and only the manufacturers are allowed to alter it.

Unblocking mobile phones is a criminal offence and carries custodial sentences. It is even an offence to simply offer to unblock or reprogram a phone.

Select your seller wisely!

If you are buying a phone online, and amazingly, 74% of consumers do, and you see one you want to buy on an auction site or a listing site, first determine whether the phone in the picture is the exact same phone you are actually being offered. No matter what site you are on you should expect to be able to glean some basic stats about the phone: the color, the correct model number, its storage capacity; all these are vital details in the device description.

The next step is to see if you can contact the seller to ask for the IMEI, if he or she refuses to give you this important piece of information, be wary and walk away. It could mean they have something to hide, and the fact is, there are so many other options you could explore rather than running the risk of a blacklisted phone. For example, Amazon and eBay have a safeguard of profiles and seller reviews that make them more trustworthy than buying from unmonitored websites. Also, Swappa and Glyde, have policies and safeguards in place for buyers. For example, Glyde holds the seller’s payment in escrow until the buyer has checked the device and confirmed that it’s clean and offers a full refund policy if not satisfied.
If you pay for your phone through PayPal or with a credit card you should be able to obtain a refund if the phone proves to be blacklisted.

If you are buying an iDevice, Apple now has a service on iCloud.com called Check Activation Lock Status. This enables you to quickly see if a device was obtained illegally. If you have managed to obtain the IMEI serial number from your seller, you can tell if someone used ‘Find My iPhone’ to switch on Activation Lock.

Activation Lock was introduced in iOS 7. It locks down the device, making it unusable until the correct Apple ID and password have been entered. So if you do purchase a bad Apple so to speak, you won’t be able to use it. You can also check how much warranty is left on the device by checking the serial number too.

Buying a cellphone online is always a case of ‘buyer beware’, which is essential for any major purchase from a complete stranger on the internet.

How to check if your IMEI is Blacklisted

IMEI stands for International Mobile Station Equipment Identity. It’s the key identifier of each and every cellphone around the world. You can check your phone’s IMEI quickly and easily on a number of free sites:

For Canada you can check here: http://www.protectyourdata.ca

In USA, you can check on the T-Mobile Website as well as Verizon, Ringplus, and Ting.

In Australia you can check for free on Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association Website:
http://www.lost.amta.org.au/IMEI or http://www.amta.org.au/pages/amta/Check.the.Status.of.your.Handset.

There are also some well-known free Check Services such as: https://swappa.com/esn
(ESN Check FAQ: https://swappa.com/faq/esn)

So it really is very easy to do some basic homework before you allow yourself to become stuck with a blacklisted mobile phone. If in doubt you can also check with the service provider that is hosting the phone or even your own current provider. You can quickly look for free IMEI services in your own country by checking on the internet.

There is also a paid for service called Checkmend but beware, if you use this site and the IMEI is blacklisted, you might just be approached by your local Law Enforcement agency who have direct access to the searches made on the Checkmend website. This could result in an unwanted visit to the police station at an unsociable hour of the day.

What to do once you are certain your phone is not blacklisted

This is the easy bit. If you obtain a clean cellphone but you are not happy with the service provider that is hosting it, or you simply want an unlocked phone, UnlockBase offers the web’s largest database of service providers and cellphone models that can be safely, quickly and economically unlocked via remote unlocking, and it can all be done in a matter of minutes. Also, UnlockBase won’t be beaten on price, so if you find a genuine deal elsewhere that unlocks the same model for less, UnlockBase will match it or beat it for price, and you can’t say fairer than that!

Buying a new cellphone can be a fun and rewarding experience provided you exercise caution and know your facts prior to purchase. Study this article well, ask questions, don’t be fobbed off and walk away if you are in the least bit suspicious. Also, let your friends know about this article by sharing it.

Cellphone jailbreaking legislation: know your rights

There is a great deal of confusion over the act of ‘jailbreaking’ a cellphone, and it’s certainly not made any clearer by the cellphone carriers who want you to stick with them for the full term of a 24 month contract. According to U.S. wireless carriers, unlocking a phone bought after January 26 2012 without your carrier’s permission violates the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) whether the phone is under contract or not.

However what this really refers to is the fact that the DMCA prohibits “circumventing” digital locks that “control access” to copyrighted works including movies, music, books, games, and software. In fact this broad and vague ruling bans a lot of useful, and important activities, however, there are exemptions for mobile phones to run unapproved software, and for using clips from DVDs and internet video in non-commercial videos.

Really? Who cares? The vast majority of people who want to jail-break their phone wish to do so in order to avoid lengthy contracts that do not best suit their needs, and they feel locked into a bad relationship.

Unfortunately, wireless carriers such as AT&T, and many others, do not have much sympathy if you want to end your contract. You need to pay an Early Termination Fee, which of course has its own acronym, (ETF) that can add up to hundreds of dollars. In fact AT&T and most major carriers, such as Sprint and Verizon, will charge you an ETF of up to $350, unless you happen to cancel within the first two weeks. T-Mobile users pay up to $200 depending on how many days are left on their contract.

But the reality is, you can still break free or jail-break without handing over rip off penalty fees for the simple reason that carriers are unlikely to start suing customers en-masse.

Here are some crafty ways to get out of a contract that is holding you back.

Unlock Your Phone

This is probably the simplest and most permanent solution of them all. In minutes and for a low cost, online cellphone unlock services such as UnlockBase can send you a code that unlocks your phone so that you can use it SIM free and choose any SIM free plan that takes your fancy. It’s quick, easy, safe and comprehensive, as UnlockBase offers a huge database of phones and service providers from around the world that they can unlock.

Sell Your Plan

You read it correctly. If you want to get out of your contract plan there may be someone interested in buying yours. Sites such as Cellswapper or Trade My Cellular specialize in this. They have found a loophole in most carrier’s rulings that means your carrier will only charge you an Early Termination Fee (ETF) if you do not have somebody to pay the monthly fees for the remainder of the contract. So if you can find someone to take over your plan, this will not violate your terms of service as the other party is fulfilling the terms of your original contract. This means you can also test another carrier’s service. You can trade contracts with someone for 3-6 months and see if you want to jump to that carrier.

Track Changes to Your Contract

Keep abreast of changes to you contract. Cellular carriers regularly make “material changes” to a contract. A material change can be anything from additional service or maintenance fees, to adjustments in the rates you’re charged, or changes in discounts applied to your account. Should you spot a material change, you should be able to contact customer service and end your contract. Cellbreaker helps track these sorts of changes so you can break your contract.

Find a Carrier That’ll Pay Your Cancellation Fee

Yes, it’s true. Did you know that some smaller carriers such as Virgin Mobile, Credo Mobile, and Boost Mobile will let you prepay or pay by the month? Some of these carriers will even pay your cancellation fee for you, and you may even be able to keep your phone too! T-Mobile even promises to pay up to $650 to cover the costs of your Early Termination Fee (ETF) if you switch to one of its plans. A useful option if you just want to switch.

Don’t be held back by a cellphone contract you no longer want, get creative and unlock your phone!
