Free Idea GPRS Hack (India)

Thursday, April 27, 2006


I was testing Idea(Tata) GPRS speeds the other day.They used to charge me 10 paise for 10 KB until my recharge balance was Rs 1.01.After this,they stopped charging me!!Yep,we can use GPRS for free after our balance reaches this golden figure!!The downside being the inability to use it as a modem(browse net on p.c).I have successfully tested this trick with Opera Browser and Agile Messenger.

P.S::This trick is applicable only to windows smartphones.I have tested it on my HTC Typhoon in A.P(hyderabad) with Idea GPRS.Other phones refuse to cash in on this trick;)

Free xetra xbar 3.0

Wednesday, April 26, 2006

What is the hype about xbar 3.0 all about?When I first used the Symbian series of smartphones(Nokia 6600),I was charmed at the ease of operation it has put in;mainly the copy/paste functionality which is embedded into it's ROM.Well,lets put an end to Nokia's monopoly in the copy/paste area by opting for Xbar 3.0 which hosts a hoard of positives including the much awaited copy/paste in windows smartphones;the only downer being the complexity involved in it's usage(windows smartphones were never considered to be user-friendly)!!
Lay your hands on Xbar 3.0 and start off by keying in the registration code::23074 (it works only if Start-->Settings-->Owner Info.-->Name==Smartphone),Voila!!(Pl buy if you really like this product).Its time to play with this tool now.Press the joystick for 2 seconds and you are greeted with an app which pops as shown in this picture.You find all the apps currently running on the phone.
1)So,whenever you want to copy/paste sth,launch Xbar and press the volume down key(at the left side of HTC Typhoon) which makes sure that the text is selected.Now,press the volume Up key to paste the text.You have just mimicked copy/paste functionality of Symbian phones ;)
2)Now,just press keypad "1" for less than a second and then,all but the highlighted app are closed(killed).Prolonged keypress of "1" will exit all the running apps.

There are so many other features of this tiny app.Do visit the help file on the Xbar app to learn more about its features.Now,enjoy the full smartphone functionality!!

Opera Browser::Free for Life

Friday, April 21, 2006

Yep,you heard it right.Opera provides you with 2 absolutely free browsers for your smartphone :: Opera Mini and Opera Community Preview 7.60.Though Opera Mini works jus fine,we always need the best nah,hence the solution is Opera Browser.It works wonders on ur phone.Some of the salient features being::Multiple Windows & Mobile accelarator.The only downside being its inability to download files for which u need to take the help of PocketIE.All said and done,now we all know that Opera browser comes at a price,so how to overcome this?Well you have 2 options::
1)Download the latest version which gives you 15~30 days trial.Then after that trial period,roll back your phones date by a month!!
2)Download Opera TCP 7.60(Technical Community Preview,search on google for download or place a request such that I will upload it for you!!) and which is free for use till 2005 November.Hence install it and roll back date on your phone to 2005!!Simple huh!!Advantage of Opera TCP 7.60 is that you are provided with Opera Mobile accelarator for free which is otherwise impossible!!
Stay tuned for other free(cracked) resources for your smartphone.
