The most precious thing you don’t want to lose from your phone is all your contacts; maybe photos and videos as well. Doing a backup every month is necessary.
Handphone ownership in Singapore has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. Not only has this resulted in a vibrant handphone resale industry, in which handphones are bought and sold via secondhand dealers, but handphones have also become a target for thieves.
The Handphone IMEI Tracing System (HITS), an online handphone screening service, was developed and launched in 2006 to deter handphone thieves from selling off stolen handphones to secondhand dealers and the public. HITS system uses each handphone’s unique International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number to identify handphones which have been reported stolen.
Where screenings could only be done via the Internet previously (accessible via Police’s e-Services webpage), the HITS system has now been enhanced to allow for screenings to be easily done via Short-Message-Service (SMS) as well.
Members of the public and secondhand dealers can easily check if the secondhand phones they are about to purchase have been reported stolen or lost via the Internet and SMS. Through this enhancement, the Police hope to deter handphone related crimes by providing a more convenient and effective avenue for members of the public to perform IMEI screening. [Read more…]

INQ is claimed to be the first social mobile phone that put instant messaging, email, VoIP and social networking at the heart of the phone. Let’s take a look how social it is.
INQ Facebook Integration
Facebook for INQ is built right into the heart of the INQ. Facebook friends show up in the INQ contacts list. Messages, pokes and requests drop in the phone’s inbox. Keep up with every conversation, wherever you are.
You can see their latest photo and status, or message, post or poke them all directly from the phone’s contacts list. Staying connected never felt easier.
This is a feature I love most: INQ sends photos from your camera straight to Facebook. Receive a call from a Facebook friend and the INQ displays their latest Facebook profile picture. So if your friends have a new look, you’ll know before you speak to them. [Read more…]
