Making Sense of Cellular Phone Minutes
Cellular phones are different from your land-line home phone in that you'll need to determine in advance how many minutes you'll use in any given month. Deciding how many minutes you'll need and making sure you don't go over your allotted minutes is one of the trickiest parts of using a cellular phone.
The most common arrangement for cellular phones is a block minute plan. With a block minute plan, you'll pay a flat fee to purchase as set number of minutes each month. The disadvantage of this plan is that if you purchase 200 minutes per month, you'll be billed the same amount whether you actually talked for 199 minutes or 60 minutes.
Something that many new cellular phone users don't realize is that you'll also be charged to receive calls. If you're worried about going over your allotted minutes, it's best not to give out your phone number to any more people than absolutely necessary.
Like a prepaid calling card, all calls made on a block minute plan are rounded up to the nearest minute. If you call a friend and listen to a 30-second answering machine message, you'll be billed for one full minute. You'll also be charged for one full minute if there's a busy signal or no answer, although some block minute plans will only bill you if you let the phone ring more than three times.
With a block minute plan, going over your allotted minutes can quickly get expensive. You'll be charge a penalty rate for every additional minute you use. If you're not careful, this can quickly add up to hundreds of dollars a month in unnecessary charges. The best defense is to buy more minutes than you think you'll actually need and reduce your plan at a later date if necessary.

Makes Cell Phones Ring at Airports
International Terrorist and insurgents to detonate bombs to kill innocent people have used cellular phones. These devices could be used as partial components of weapons or in plots for aircraft suicide bombing missions as well. I propose a device in airport terminals, which will send out a harmonic test using directed sound as the carrier of the cell phone passes by. When the person says "hello, hello, hello" their voices are recorded against the NSA database of voices on their "watch list." Additionally I propose that all bags on the conveyer belts also have a choke point, which is bomb resistant with a harmonic signal sent attempting to contact the phone. If a suicide bomber is on the plane and leaves his cell phone connected to a bomb underneath he could use this to detonate the bomb on the plane he is on, but if it goes thru a pre-detonation device system on the conveyor belt it will be eliminate and a disaster prevented.
Cell Phone Reviews ? Why Do Them?
Well let's be honest some people just don't bother doing cell phone reviews, and why should they? Well let's keep things simple, would you just walk into a car showroom and drive away within 5 minutes, not many would unless you have done your homework first. Cell phones can be complex, you need to know what you what before you jump and buy, and then there are the cell phone carriers, who to choose from. A little research goes along way. The cell phones today are far different than when first introduced onto the market. We now have GPS phones, camera phone, PDA phones and phones with Bluetooth technologies. Bluetooth, when it first came out I thought it was a fashion icon to dye your teeth. You have to be aware of what you are buying in order to maximise the usage.
Helping You Choose From Cell or Land Line
Most of us have two phones, our cell and our land line (house phone). Realistically many people are paying two bills when one is sufficient. The cell phone is still more expensive than the house phone but with the massive increase of people signing up in the mobile world prices continue to fall. If you are working during the day the chances are you are only using your house phone in the evening.
Prepaid Cell Phone Plans ? Are They For You?

Getting the Most of Your Cell Phone Batteries
Are you planning on buying a new phone in the near future? Or do you need to replace your dead cell phone battery? When it comes to cell phone batteries, it is more complex than that of buying AA batteries. There is more than one type of cell phone batteries to choose from on any given phone and also many factors to consider. For instance: cell phone batteries have different weight values, they vary in lifetime and talk time too. These choices can have a big impact on your cell phone decision, especially if you travel and need your phone available 24/7.
Letting Go of 3G - A Viable Alternative for Asian Carriers
Most Asian cellular carriers mulling over 3G have chalked out at least tentative transition paths towards that Holy Grail. If they're GSM networks, it's a safe bet EDGE (Enhanced Data for GSM Evolution) is being considered, to replace/augment GPRS for high speed data services. Because EDGE uses a new modulated scheme that is also used for UMTS/3G, EDGE becomes a sort of half-way house to 3G.
Negotiating a Cell Tower Lease: Getting Help
A recent survey of the FCC's antenna structure registration database showed that in 2001 there were roughly 89,000 antenna sites registered with the FCC. Today, there are over 109,000 registered sites. It is important to note that most towers under 200' are not required to be registered, so there are significantly more towers in the US than this number suggests.

Cell Phone - Why Should I Upgrade
We hear from friends or just general chat by people wanting to upgrade their cell phones. There are a number of very good reasons to upgrade but unfortunately the main reason people upgrade and without thinking is because the cell phone manufacturers are blitzing us with advertising on a daily basis with new features. I bet you can pinpoint a few friends who have new cell phones and have no idea as to how to go about using all the key features.
