Hey, you know how we always say get those pre-loaded SIM cards off of eBay to use in your iPad, phone, or whatever device? Well, I just found out why there are so many on eBay in the first place. I am not sure why I missed this in the past, but this seems to be the (more…)

Galaxy Note 2 for £401? (NOPE TOO LATE)

October 9th, 2012 | Posted by Kevin Wright in News | Tips & Tutorials - (Comments Off)

TOO LATE NOW AS OF 18/10/2012 THIS DEAL IS ENDED

YOU SNOOZE YOU LOSE :(

With thanks to Richard and Leon for in
formation, I present the latest O2 deal for the brand new Galaxy Note 2

Remember all these posts are correct at time of posting, in fact I just signed up for one myself. All info is to the best of my knowledge, but as always, buyer beware.

So, go join QUIDCO if not already a member, and search for O2. Should be £50 cashback on 24 mth contracts. Go over to the O2 site, and find the Note 2 in either White or Grey, and select the £16.50 a month and handset £199 offer. Click on the 100mb allowance and it should reduce to £13.50

Sign up, and once your account is live, you can log in and take the £3.50 a month data bolt on off, so its £10.50 * 24 and £199 with £50 to come back from Quidco. You have yourself a Note 2 for £401, free unlock (if its not already unlocked) and a SIM to give a kid with a dumb phone with 50 mins and 250 texts.

UPDATE 12/10

Just to update this, as of 12/10 this deal is still live, and I managed to get one by using my partners details, (I was rejected as I already had 6 accounts :-)

I was able to drop the £3 data bolt on before the phone even arrived here, by logging into O2 Chat and asking the agent to sort it for me.

I have decided to offer somebody the chance to save a few quid on this Note by offering it over at PSC Forum if for any reason you can not get this deal or want to pay once.

iPhone 4S Battery Life

October 26th, 2011 | Posted by Kevin Wright in Tips & Tutorials - (Comments Off)

As per TTUK 20 here is what I did to massively improve battery life.

  • Reset Network Settings: Tap on “Settings” > Reset > Reset Network Settings
  • Disable Bluetooth: Settings > General > Bluetooth > “OFF”
  • Disable unwated Notifications & apps: Settings > Notifications > Turn OFF for anything you don’t need
  • Disable Location Service: Settings > Location Services > Disable selectively for services you don’t use
  • Disable Timezone Adjustment: Tap on “Settings” > “Location Services” > ‘System Services’ > Setting Time Zone to OFF
  • Disable Ping: Settings > General > Restrictions > Enable Restrictions > Ping > OFF
  • Disable Diagnostic & Usage Reports: Tap on “Settings” > General > About > Diagnostic & Usage > Don’t Send
  • Disable Email accounts by heading to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Account Name > Delete Account. Once done, reset network settings (the first tip up there) then reboot your device and re-add your accounts back from Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account.
  • Disabled the Siri feature to work when you bring it to your face, so now you have to press the button, which is fine by me.
