Wholesale Smart Watches From China

Cell Phone Watch

There are many products invented, developed and launched every day, but when you ask the question: “What’s going to be the next BIG THING?” Most people will place there bet on cell phone watches.
Just like 007, you can use these tech gadgets to do everything you can with a normal China Mobile Phone including taking pictures! Most mobile phone watches have all the features of popular cellphones from HTC and Nokia, but come in a more convenient wrist watch style form factor that makes them better for today’s busy young professionals.

Best Android Watch Phone

Using an Android watch phone doesn’t mean giving up any of the features you want and enjoy in a full size model. Most of these Android watches have touchscreens, MP3 and MP4 media players, Bluetooth and even video cameras. Our selection of Cell Phone Watches are GSM cellular phones that can be used worldwide. Now they are available at significantly lower wholesale prices. Not is it convenient to buy products for yourself, but at the same time resellers are now able to make big profits by reselling our watch phones. Simply list our cell phone watches on eBay, get orders and we ship it directly to your end consumer. This means that there is zero risk for the mobile watch reseller.

Touch Screen Watches

Most Android watches are great for active people that don’t want to have to carry a phone in their pocket. In addition, the touch screen of the watches are very user friendly and you’ll get a lot of looks and questions about your new watch phone from people everywhere you go. No phone is more convenient than one that’s always at your finger tips. A touch screen watch has way more functionality than traditional watches including the possibility to serve the web, read emails and taking pictures in high quality. The touch mobile watch is sooner or later going mainstream. Read in the next paragraph why this is the case.

Android Wear Watches

The touch watch phone industry is experiencing a revolution with the arrival of Android Wear OS. Until now, watch phones are a cool gadget to own, but with the new Android Wear, the OS will disrupt the industry significantly. Android Wear is a fully customized OS for small touch screens on a watch phone and this will significantly improve the user friendliness. Watch phones are going mass market. At Chinavasion, we bet that Rolex and Cartier is getting nervous!

Watch Cell Phones & Watch Mobile Phones

Watch cell phones become really useful once you can do everything what you can do on your phone. An average tech lover owns so many devices nowadays that things become so difficult to carry them all around. With a watch mobile phone you are basically having a 2-in-1 device that is easy to wear on your wrist.

Mobile Phone Distributors, How to Become a Wireless Master Agent #mobile


Mobile Phone Distributors – What You Need To Know!

Mobile phone distributors are a critical part of a prepaid wireless provider’s success! Are you interested in becoming a cell phone distributor? Here you’ll learn about what it takes to be a wireless master agent, how it works, the technology involved, and more! The fact is that the world of mobile phone distributors is fascinating, and can be the life blood of many wireless carriers.

What are cell phone distributors?
First, let’s define what exactly a distributor is and does. Different people will have different definitions and describe various scopes of responsibility, however, generally speaking the following points are very consistent. Having worked directly with prepaid wireless distributors for many years, I feel comfortable that the following information will help you get jump-started on becoming knowledgeable!

  • Distributors are often referred to as master agents. This is because they are at the top of the so-called distribution food chain. What that means is that while a distributor or master agent may sometimes sell phones and airtime directly to customers, they typically mostly sell wholesale to dealers.
  • In turn, dealers have their own stores, but also sell wholesale to smaller stores. Sometimes there is even a sub-dealer level between the dealer and the store level.
  • A cell phone distributor will buy phones and airtime discounted directly from prepaid wireless carriers. They will then mark up the price and sell it down to the next level.
  • Mobile phone distributors can have relationships with dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of stores beneath them. The layers under them are often referred to as their sub-distribution. Depending on the size, reputation, and policies of a prepaid wireless carrier, some wireless distributors won’t be able to work directly with a prepaid carrier. In other words, as a wireless distributor, you could have a direct relationship with a prepaid carrier, or you may have to work as a sub-distributor under another larger master agent who is working directly with the carrier.

What’s the best level?
This can become a very personal decision. Are you the type of person who wants to run a large distribution network, and deal with the operations, collections, and warehousing that comes along with that? Or are you the type of person who enjoys working day to day directly with the customer? The answer will likely be a combination of what you enjoy, as well as what are your strengths and capabilities.

There’s no doubt about it that the higher you are on the mobile phone distributor food chain, the more money you’ll make, and the faster you’ll make that money. The simple reason is because once you have a network of sub-distributors and stores, you’ll be able to sell hundreds, or even thousands of phones in one deal, versus the bottom of the chain, where you’ll be selling one phone at a time to the customer, which practically speaking, will simply take more time. But for that apparent ease, you’ll have more overall risk.

Consider if you were to buy 10,000 phones from a prepaid carrier. If you don’t have the operations in place to receive and ship out those phones in an efficient manner, it could take you some time before you get the products in the hands of those who will actually be selling them. And that doesn’t include the cost of paying for the phone (or topup) inventory, and the cost to store it. Many prepaid carriers require that distributors prepay for inventory. Some will give you payment terms (ex. net 10 days or 30 days), however, that is becoming less common these days. Even with payment terms, you’ll still need to get the product out, and get paid in time to pay the carrier for the inventory if you want to minimize your cash flow outlay to support your inventory.

As a side note, I’ve seen more than a few mobile phone distributors selling millions upon millions of dollars of phones and airline who have been extremely cash-strapped, and on the brink of bankruptcy! One operational issue, or trouble collecting money from your sub-distribution, and you’re toast! But don’t let that scare you off. Those issues really come down to poor management, and perhaps greed, trying to grow their business too quickly. If you’re wise, you should be able to profitably (and safely!) build your business without being on the edge of financial disaster.

What do you need to become a wireless distributor?

  • Relationships – You’ll need to have relationships with sub-dealers and/or stores. In my opinion this is the most difficult part. Building relationships with other dealers or stores is not easy. It takes a certain kind of person to seek out such opportunities and to sell your services. Due to the amazing potential to make a lot of money in the prepaid wireless distribution business, competition is fierce! You can target a specific neighborhood, type of mom and pop store, small convenience store, etc. Think about where people might want to buy a phone or topup their prepaid wireless account. Also consider what unique value you can add. Do you have special knowledge, insight, or existing relationships with a specific type of community? This should be considered a critical success factor, and will largely determine whether you should be a master cell phone distributor at the top of the chain, a smaller one, or somewhere in the middle. There’s really no “wrong” place to be. Wherever you fit in, and can apply your passion, you’ll have a chance to succeed!
  • Access to Technology – Depending on where you are on the food chain, you’ll need to have technology to process airtime sales. Usually the master cell phone distributor will provide access to technology to partners below them, so lets assume you’re at the top for the moment. You’ll need to partner with a Technology Service Provider (TSP). TSPs also have relationships with prepaid wireless carriers. The larger ones will have direct relationships, while the smaller ones will have indirect relationships. The closer they are to being direct, the more money you’ll likely be able to make (due to higher available margins). There are a number of technologies currently available, and depending on the dealers/stores that are selling your prepaid products, you may need one or all of these:
    • POS Terminals – These are Point Of Sale Terminals that typically look like credit card terminals. They can be used to sell electronic PINs (ePINs) or to perform PIN-less Real Time Replenishment (RTR) transactions.
    • Web Terminals – These are secure websites that provide the same products as do POS terminals, but can be accessed via the Internet, without the need for special hardware or equipment. Internet access, however, IS required.
    • Hot Cards – This product has been phased out of the market. These require minimal or no technology, and can often be purchased directly from the carrier or master distributors. The operational and fraud risks around this product lead carriers to get rid of it; I keep it here as a historical reference, and you may encounter people who talk about it even to this day.

To read about these technologies in detail, visit the Point Of Sale Technology page. As a cell phone distributor you’ll need to get a very good understanding of these replenishment technologies so you can sell your services to dealers and/or stores. You may only need one of them or all of them. Remember that you need to keep in mind the needs of YOUR customers (dealers and/or stores), as well as what the end users (wireless customers) need and prefer. Believe it or not, these are not always the same things!
Special Note: Depending on how large you are, as well as your relationship with your TSP(s) and sub-distribution, you may be able to get these technologies from free, you may have to buy them outright (ex. terminals), or you may be able to lease them. Depending on where your business lies in the food chain, you may be able to pass any costs down to your sub-distribution.

  • Money – You’ll need to either have cash on hand, or access to money from banks or investors. You’ll need this money to pay for technology, warehousing, staff, and of course, prepaid phones and prepaid airtime. Although people tend to worry the most about getting money, I put it last because it really is the easiest part of the equation! If you have good relationships and access to technology, you’re well on your way to building a successful cell phone distributor business, and finding the money will be the easiest part!

How to Save a Wet Cell Phone: 6 Steps #the #first


How to Save a Wet Cell Phone

This instructable will cover two ways that can help you repair a “wet” phone. As water damage varies from case to case, there is no guarantees that this will work in your case, but it is worth a try!

It is important to know that these procedures will NOT void warranty. However, if your phone has been water damaged, there is a large chance your warranty is already void! On newer phones, there is usually a sticker in the battery bay that is used to tell the manufacturer when a phone has been “water damaged” which allows the manufacturer to then cancel the warranty. This sticker is usually round in shape, and starts off white when it is not wet. Although, I think my samsung a900M started with brown and went to black.

If neither of these methods work, and your sticker is still it’s original color, try to have your phone serviced under warranty.

CAUTION: Before attempting ANY method in this instructable, remove the battery, battery door, and SIM card if applicable, and place them in a safe location!

DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for any damages to your phone as a result of you attempting any of these methods, do so at your own risk.

Step 1: Understanding the Problem

When your phone got wet, it most likely got some moisture trapped inside it. This moisture causes the phone to behave very funny, and possibly not even power up.
This is due to the conductivity of water (It’s ability to have electrical current pass through it.) This moisture can bridge certain connections in your phone, causing these behaviors.

Even though your phone may behave fine at first, it is better to dry the phone before use anyways, as the water that remains inside can be moved around, and cause issues later.

So what to remember, is that after exposing your phone to moisture, you want to nullify the moisture inside.

Step 2: Prepping the Phone for “repair”

As we discussed in the last step, we want to make the water either dry up, or we can use a “Neutralizer” technique that allows it to become not as conductive.

The first thing we need to do is remove the battery and battery door and place them in a safe spot. This is because the phone can air out better without the battery, we don’t want to damage the battery, and we also reduce the amount of live circuits that the water can short out.

Step 3: Method One: Heat It Up!

I live in Arizona, and here in the sunny state of AZ, we have an abundance of swimming pools. My phone has gone for a swim many times in the past few weeks, and this method was tried and proved each time.

Fortunately, here in Arizona, I can take off the battery and leave the phone in the sun, on a towel to prevent heat damage from surface contact, for about 20 minutes and it’s good to go! Your timing may vary depending on how hot the sun is, but this method is my preferred.

Pretty simple, remove the battery door and battery, place them inside, place a rag out in the sun and put the rest of the phone on that. Depending on how hot of a day it is, bring the phone inside for a bit if it ever gets hot to the touch (overheating can damage LCD screens.)

Step 4: Method 2: Freeze It!

The second method consists of freezing the water inside the phone. This is by far my favorite method if your outside temperature does not go over 80 F.

Again, we start by taking out the battery.
Place the phone on two or three layers of paper towel to prevent frost damage.
Leave it in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes and take it out to test it, if it still doesn’t work, leave it out for about 5 to 10 minutes then try again. Electrical components are fairly tolerant to cold, however depending on your screen, it is best to play it safe and just leave it out of the freezer for a bit to keep from damaging it. I haven’t researched LCD or Plasma screens, so if anyone knows what temperatures they hold up to, let us know!

That’s cool, but why does it work?

Freezing the phone works a little differently on a technical level than heating it up does.
When the water molecules inside become Ice or frost, they are less conductive (I believe due to the spacing of molecules?) thus preventing the phone from “shorting out.”

This method my also lead to the problem acting up again as the phone thaws, or a worse problem acting up as the phone thaws and the water moves to a different spot.
It is also of note, that some electronic components are ‘surface mounted’, which results in tiny space between the component and the circuit board it self. This means that if water manages to get underneath the components and is then frozen, it can expand and cause further issues. However, in my opinion, the possibility of water getting under there with the phone only being submerged for a little while, is pretty slim.

Step 5: Unverified Methods

The following are methods that I have not verified myself. Next time my phone gets wet, I’ll try some out!

1: The oven
It is said that placing the phone in the oven for a few hours at about 125 F. will solve the problem. This method sounds likely, but I would recommend taking it out now and then to test it and let it cool! And don’t forget to remove the battery, cover, and SIM card!

User Carolradtech has tried this method, and said the following.
I successfully baked my wet cell phone on 125 for 40 minutes and the phone is now fixed. the unverified baking method is now verified.

2: Rice
It has also been reported that placing the phone in a bowl of rice while putting it in the sun allows the moisture to absorb faster. As the water evaporates into steam, the dry rice can absorb it rather than have it re-condense elsewhere inside the phone.

3: Silica!
This one is similar to the rice method, it just utilizes a better drying agent. Ya know those little packets that come in jerky, new shoes, purses, backpacks, whatever, that say “DO NOT EAT” all over them? The contain little balls of a chemical called “silica.” Place these in a bag with the phone, and toss it in the sun! This is potentially the best method I have heard of. It is also of note that craft shops sell silica as a flower drying agent.

4: Give it booze!
Well not exactly. Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) is non-conductive. It is said that if you get some, put it in a cup or a bucket, and swirl the phone around in there, it will rinse out the water and likely even clean some dust deposits! This will prevent any further “bridging” of connections as it is non-conductive, and alcohol evaporates super fast.
A few words of caution: I would try this only with the bottom half of your phone if you have a flip-phone, as I am not sure how the screen will react. Also, I wouldn’t attempt it with anything less than 91% isopropyl.

Last but not least..
5: Open it up and air dry!
This is the best method hands down, but it will sacrifice any sort of warranty you had. I do NOT recommend this method unless you are entirely comfortable with it.

Step 6: Rrport Your Success/failure!

Now your phone hopefully functions as good as new! Let us all know how it worked (or didn’t) and keep your information-lifeline away from swimming pools!

Survival Rates for Oral Cavity and Oropharyngeal Cancer by Stage #squamous


Survival Rates for Oral Cavity and Oropharyngeal Cancer by Stage

Survival rates are often used by doctors as a standard way of discussing a person’s prognosis (outlook). Some patients with cancer may want to know the survival statistics for people in similar situations, while others may not find the numbers helpful, or may even not want to know them. If you don’t want to read about the survival statistics below for oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer, stop reading here and skip to the next section .

The 5-year survival rate refers to the percentage of patients who live at least 5 years after their cancer is diagnosed. Of course, many of these people live much longer than 5 years.

Five-year relative survival rates, such as the numbers below, assume that some people will die of other causes and compares the observed survival of people with cancer with that expected for people without cancer. This is a more accurate way to describe the impact that a particular type and stage of cancer may have on survival.

To get 5-year survival rates, doctors have to look at people who were treated at least 5 years ago. Improvements in treatment since then may result in a more favorable outlook for people now being diagnosed with these cancers.

Survival rates are often based on previous outcomes of large numbers of people who had the disease, but they cannot predict what will happen in any individual’s case. Many other factors may affect a person’s outlook, such as the patient’s age and health, the treatment received, and how well the cancer responds to treatment. Your doctor can tell you how the numbers below may apply to you, because they are familiar with the aspects of your particular situation.

The following survival statistics come from the National Cancer Institute’s SEER program. They are based on large numbers of patients diagnosed between 2000 and 2014. SEER doesn’t provide recent statistics by AJCC stage. Instead, cancers are divided into the summary stages:

  • Local: the cancer is only in the area where it started. This includes stages I and II, as well as some stage III cancers that haven’t spread to any lymph nodes.
  • Regional: the cancer has spread to nearby tissues and/or lymph nodes. This includes some stage III cancers, as well as stage IV cancers that haven’t spread to distant sites
  • Distant: the cancer has spread to distant sites

Also, these statistics are based on the stage of the cancer when it was first diagnosed. They do not apply to cancers that have come back or spread, for example.

    Helper T cell-B cell interactions for antibody formation against hapten-conjugated proteins and complex proteins
    Thymus-independent antigens
    Properties and functions of cytokines

    Molecules involved in the interactions of B and TH cells
    Antigen is processed by B cell. Co-stimulators are expressed. The processed antigen peptide is presented in association with MHC class II antigens. The T cell recognizes the peptide along with the MHC antigen and the co-stimulators. The T cell expresses CD40 ligand. The latter binds to CD40 antigen on the B cell and the B cells divide and differentiate. Antibodies are produced by the B cell


    A. Hapten-carrier effect

    Historically one of the major findings was that T cells and B cells are required in order to produce antibody to a complex protein. A major contribution to our understanding of this process came from studies on the formation of anti-hapten antibodies.

    Recall that a hapten injected by itself cannot elicit an antibody response. Rather antibodies against haptens require that the hapten be conjugated to a protein (sometimes termed a carrier).

    These studies with hapten-carrier established that:

    1. Th cells recognize the carrier, and B cells recognize hapten.
    2. There must be cooperation between hapten-specific B cells and protein (carrier)-specific helper T cells.
    3. Interaction between the hapten-specific B cell and the carrier-specific helper T cell are class II self MHC-restricted. The helper T cell cooperates only with B cells that express class II MHC molecules recognized as self by the T cells.

    B. B cells as antigen presenting cells

    B cells occupy a unique position in immune responses because they express immunoglobulin (Ig) and class II MHC molecules on their cell surface. They therefore are capable of producing antibody having the same specificity as that expressed by their immunoglobulin receptor; in addition they can function as an antigen presenting cell. In terms of the hapten-carrier protein findings, the mechanism is thought to be the following: the hapten is recognized by the Ig receptor, the hapten-carrier brought into the B cell, processed, and peptide fragments of the carrier protein presented to a helper T cell. Activation of the T cell results in the production of cytokines that enable the hapten-specific B cell to become activated to produce soluble anti-hapten antibodies. Figure 1 summarizes the B cell-T cell interactions that occur.

    Note that there are multiple signals delivered to the B cells in this model of Th cell-B cell interaction. As was the case for activation of T cells where the signal derived from the TCR recognition of a peptide-MHC molecule was by itself insufficient for T cell activation, so too for the B cell. Binding of an antigen to the immunoglobulin receptor delivers one signal to the B cell, but that is insufficient. Second signals delivered by costimulatory molecules are required; the most important of these is CD40L on the T cell that binds to CD40 on the B cell to initiate delivery of a second signal.

    Figure 2
    Cooperation of cells in the immune response
    Antigen-presenting cells (e.g. dendritic cells) present processed antigen to virgin T cells, thereby priming them. B cells also process the antigen and present it to the T cells. They then receive signals from the T cells that cause them to divide and differentiate. Some B cells form antibody-forming cells while a few form B memory cells

    C. Extension of this model to complex protein antigens (T-dependent antigens)

    The same mechanism described above can cover all multideterminant complex protein antigens that require helper T cells. These antigens are referred to as thymus-dependent antigens. If one determinant is recognized by B cells (analogous to the hapten) and the same or different determinant is recognized by the helper T cells (analogous to the carrier), the same model applies. This is shown in Figure 2.

    D. B cells in secondary responses

    As a consequence of a primary response, many memory B cells are created. These carry a high-affinity receptor, Ig, which allows them to bind and present antigen at much lower concentrations than is required for macrophages or dendritic cells.


    The thymus-independent antigens (T-independent antigens) are those that produce normal antibody responses in athymic (thymus-less or nude) mice, i.e. under conditions where T cells are absent. T-independent antigens have the following properties:

    1. activate B cells at high concentrations, i.e. are polyclonal B cell activators (antigens like lipopolysaccharide, LPS, sometimes termed B cell mitogens).
    2. are large polymeric molecules with repeating antigenic determinants.
    3. are particularly resistant to degradation
    4. Some antigens activate both immature and mature B cells; other antigens activate only mature B cells and are thus not especially effective in infants where B cells are mostly immature.
    5. Responses to several T-independent antigens are dominated by CD5 B cells, described below.

    Unlike the thymus-dependent antigens, the thymus-independent antigens:

    1. do not produce isotype switching (IgM is almost exclusively produced)
    2. do not demonstrate affinity maturation (in which antibodies of progressively higher affinity are produced)
    3. do not show secondary responses (no memory B cells).

    The thymus-independent antigen pathway is important because humoral immunity is the major mechanism of defense against many harmful bacteria that have polysaccharides in their cell wall. Individuals with depressed T cell systems can still resist these types of bacterial infections.

    Origin of B cell tumors. These tumors arise as clonal outgrowths from normal B cells at different developmental stages. The tumor cells behave in a similar manner to their normal equivalent and go to similar parts of the body

    III. CD5 + B CELLS

    CD5 + B cells (sometimes referred to as B-1 cells) form a population that is distinct from conventional B cells (sometimes referred to as B-2 cells). They have the following characteristics:

    1. are the first B cells to appear in ontogeny
    2. express surface IgM, but little or no IgD
    3. produce immunoglobulins, mainly IgM, from unmutated or minimally mutated germline genes
    4. produce antibodies of low avidity that are polyreactive (i.e. bind multiple different antigens, mainly bacterial polysaccharides and double stranded DNA)
    5. contribute most of the IgM found in adult serum
    6. do not develop into memory cells
    7. are self-renewing in adults (i.e. do not continue to arise from a stem cell in the bone marrow as do conventional B cells)
    8. reside in peripheral tissues and are the predominant lymphocyte in the peritoneal cavity.

    The following table contrasts CD5 + B cells with conventional B cells.

    Sorry, AT – T: T-Mobile says it has fastest wireless network


    Sorry, AT T: T-Mobile says it has fastest wireless network in US

    T-Mobile claims it now has the fastest wireless network in the United States.

    At a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Wednesday, the wireless operator said that its newly deployed 4G LTE network, which now covers 209 million people in the US in 273 metro areas, is the fastest wireless network in the United States. The company’s CEO, John Legere, known for his pokes at competitor AT T, giddily pointed out that this means it has unseated AT T as the supposed fastest carrier in the US.

    “If you look at that data, we win by a mile,” he said.

    Legere said he plans sending a cease-and-desist letter to AT T to have the company change its marketing. Legere even joked he’d take a camera crew with him as he personally delivered the letter to AT T execs.

    AT T has been advertising it has the fastest wireless network for almost a year, and T-Mobile’s Legere and CTO Neville Ray argued that AT T’s claims are based on old data. T-Mobile, which just deployed its 4G LTE network en masse this past year, says it has more up-to-date speed test data that proves it holds the crown as the fastest network.

    Ray explained that using data collected from Ookla’s Speedtest.net, T-Mobile has consistently outpaced all its competitors when it comes to speed using the speedtest.net Web site.

    The data was collected from T-Mobile and other wireless customers testing their service using the Speedtest.net site as well as paid consultants that T-Mobile sent out to test the networks.

    After compiling and analyzing months’ worth of data, Ray said that T-Mobile consistently performed better than its competitors’ 4G LTE networks. For example, in December, T-Mobile had an average download speed of 17.8Mbps compared with 14.7Mbps from AT T and 14.3Mbps from Verizon Wireless. Sprint came in with speeds of 7.9Mbps.

    To show how this data can be collected and analyzed daily, he also showed averages for a single day, January 7, 2013. On that day, T-Mobile offered average download speeds of 16.8Mbps. Verizon had average downloads of 15.1Mpbs. AT T topped out at 13.7Mbps, and Sprint had an average speed of 7.6Mbps.

    Ray explained that T-Mobile’s performance will only increase as the company rolls out its so-called Wideband LTE. This Wideband LTE service is not a new technology or variation of LTE, rather it’s simply a marketing term used by T-Mobile to highlight pockets of the company’s network where it has more spectrum allocated for LTE use.

    Wideband LTE and low-frequency spectrum
    Most LTE Networks today, such as Verizon’s network, have been built using a minimum of a 10MHz sliver of spectrum for upstream traffic and a 10MHz sliver of spectrum for downstream. T-Mobile has been adding spectrum to its footprint, and in some markets, such as Dallas, it has deployed twice as much spectrum for LTE, offering a 20MHz sliver for upstream and a 20MHz sliver for downstream data transmissions.

    Because Wideband LTE is nothing more than an LTE service with more wireless spectrum allocated in specific locations, existing LTE devices work just as they do on parts of the network with less spectrum allocated.

    Even though T-Mobile may now try to claim to be the fastest wireless network in the nation, it certainly isn’t the most extensive. T-Mobile is still very much constrained to a relatively small footprint that centers around densely populated areas like cities. This has been a major handicap over the years as the company tries to compete with AT T and Verizon.

    But Ray assured the audience at the press conference that the carrier is working on improving this aspect of the carrier’s network, too. The main problem is that T-Mobile lacks low-frequency spectrum, which travels long distances and penetrates obstacles like walls more easily. This type of spectrum is ideal for covering rural and suburban areas.

    Instead, the company has built its network using higher-frequency spectrum that transmits signals over shorter distances, has more difficulty penetrating walls and other obstacles, but offers a lot of capacity.

    In an effort to expand its network to more places and improve in-building coverage, T-Mobile has been pursuing opportunities to buy low-frequency spectrum. Earlier this week, it announced a deal with Verizon in which it will swap some of its higher-band spectrum for lower-frequency spectrum in the 700MHz A block. This will finally give T-Mobile some low-frequency spectrum to at least begin building its network beyond cities.

    “We’re going to take that network with low-band spectrum, and expand into homes, vacation destinations, other places,” Ray said.

    The new 700MHz A block spectrum from Verizon offers T-Mobile low-frequency spectrum in 9 out of the top 10 urban markets and 21 of the top 30 markets, the company said when the deal was announced. But the larger 4G LTE footprint won’t be built overnight. The deal with Verizon still needs approval from regulators. And after that, T-Mobile will need to address some interference issues.

    The block of spectrum that T-Mobile bought is right next to the broadcast TV channel 51. In some markets where broadcasters are using channel 51 there are potential interference issues. But on a call with investors on Monday, Ray explained that these issues are minor — and that 50 percent of the new spectrum holdings have no interference issues because there is no channel 51 broadcaster transmitting a signal. So in cities such as Dallas, Washington, Miami, Philadelphia, and Minneapolis, T-Mobile will be able to add the new spectrum immediately after the deal is closed.

    Then the only thing that will hold back T-Mobile customers from benefiting from the new spectrum are the handsets. T-Mobile will need to add additional radio support to handsets to take advantage of the 700MHz frequency.

    With low-band spectrum, Ray said, T-Mobile will be able to level the playing field.

    “We have the weapons to do that now,” he said.

    Using Your Mobile Phone in Italy #travel, #technology, #cell #phone


    Using Your Mobile Phone in Italy

    We have all become more dependent upon our mobile phones than we ever imagined: they double up as our music player, camera and personal organiser. They keep us connected to social media and enable us to share our experiences worldwide.

    As mobile devices have increased in both popularity and ease of use, there’s been a gradual decline in the U.S and the United Kingdom in public telephones and this is the same in Italy, with many small villages no longer having a street corner telephone.

    If you are visiting Italy and want to use your mobile/cell phone while you are there, here are a few things that you’ll need to know.

    Will my phone work in Italy?

    Italy, like most EU countries, uses the GSM mobile system, meaning that the majority of U.K. mobile devices in circulation will be compatible; however, only 50% of U.S. and Canadian handsets will work in European countries. So before you travel, it’s a good idea to contact your service provider and make enquiries. Also please check your contract, as some providers will require notice that you intend to use your device whilst travelling out of your country of residence.

    Roaming and Charges

    Once you are in Italy, your handset will be ‘roaming’, this means it will be looking for an Italian service provider to connect to. The four Italian service providers are Wind, Vodafone, TIM and Three. Roaming means that you can stay connected at all times, but it does also mean that there can be additional charges. If you have a smartphone, it’s a good idea to turn off data roaming until it is required. Data roaming is when your phone automatically updates internet services, such as Facebook updates, Twitter feeds, etc. One of the biggest complaints from holiday-makers is the high costs accrued for data roaming, so turn it on only when you need to check your email and post on social media.

    One thing to bear in mind is the extra charges that will be incurred while you use your handset abroad. For every incoming call you receive, there will be an additional charge to your handset for the portion of the call that is routed through the host country’s telephone system; some providers will also charge even if you don’t answer the call.

    Local calls and texts may be charged at the local Italian rate, however texts home to your friends and family will also incur further charges. Also bear in mind that if you call or text a friend who is in your holiday group on their non-Italian phone, it will still be considered to be an international communication and subject to your service providers international rates.

    Unlocking your Phone

    One of the easiest ways to keep track of phone charges whilst in Italy is to purchase a SIM card, as all the Italian providers operate pre-paid services. Unfortunately, most mobile handsets are locked and will only be compatible with SIM cards belonging to your service provider. If you contact your service provider and explain that you are travelling and will be using another SIM card while abroad, they will unlock your device or send you a code to do so by SMS. Some providers will try to talk you into taking an international package, but in most cases these work out more expensive than using an Italian SIM card.

    Obtaining an Italian SIM card is relatively easy; all you will need to provide at the point of sale is your address while in the country and your passport, which will be photocopied. Unlike some EU countries where it is possible to purchase a pre-paid card anonymously, this is not possible in Italy, as the details of all telephone users and their numbers are registered.

    Finally, Italian SIM cards expire after a certain period of inactivity. Providers vary from 3 to 12 months; this also includes any credit you may have left, so it’s best to use up the remaining credit and dispose of the card once you return home, as it won’t be worth saving it for another visit a year or two later.

    Also before you change the SIM cards, save your address book to your handset so that it will be available for use with the Italian card and remember to add the (+) sign and country code to the numbers you will be calling while on vacation.
