Wind Mobile Launches LTE Services with a Rebrand

Wind Mobile Launches LTE Services with a Rebrand

alek-krstajic-freedom-mobile

Wind recently launched their new LTE services alongside with a new brand. Freedom Mobile. Their 3G network which runs on the AWS frequency bands is being joined with a new BAND 66 LTE service. The network service should be available in every operable market by August.

Since its acquisition by Calgary-based Shaw Communications, Wind has gained over one million customers since launch under foreign ownership in 2008.

Huge discounts were provided on mobile services within major urban city centers but it runs on a lower end spectrum band that still faces issues such as slow or dropped signals.

The new LTE service is rolled out already in Toronto and Vancouver regions. By 2017 all other areas that the company works in should be covered.

Wind plans range between 25 to 50 dollars a month which usually includes unlimited talk, text, and data plans. The catch is that the network is based on spotty service.

 

Why the Galaxy Note 7 Explodes

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 catching fire due to “aggressive” designs

instrumental-note7

 

According to a company called Instrumental testing has been performed on the device to determine the cause of the exploding Galaxy Note 7. Results show that Samsung has been too “aggressive” with the design making the devices fire-prone. This is particularly related to how the battery was installed as well.

Since it’s release in August 2016 and throughout the next few months where the South Korean giant had to take action through a total recall of all Galaxy Note 7 units users have been reporting a slew of explosions in various locations around the world. Some of these circumstances have video footage, images and various news coverage. Samsung had no choice but to make the better decision to do a total recall.

A manufacturing technology company called Instrumental performed their own testing and tear down of the device. They believe they came upon the reasons as to why the Note 7’s were so fire prone.

The battery is created with a positive layer (lithium cobalt oxide) along side a negative layer made of graphite. There is another layer within the battery that separates these two positive / negative layers. The middle layer allows energy to flow back and forth between the two layers. If the Positive and Negative layers were to physically touch this would generate heat and lead to an explosion.

The aggressive design of the Note 7 to pack the best modules and features in an extremely thin profile contributed to this trouble. When users sit on or put pressure on the Note 7 devices we can see forces acted upon the battery that can lead to a tear in the middle layer. The battery was too large to fit in such a small space. Normally 10% spacing must be provided around the perimeter of the battery. Samsung left no spaces in some spots.

The battery also expands as users charge and use the device. This would put additional pressure on the battery itself as it pushes itself against the frame of the device.

The solution to the problem would have been to include a smaller battery than what Samsung decided. Of course, business wise this would have put Samsung at a disadvantage against Apple. However, this move may have saved Samsung from the great trouble it is still facing today.

How to Unlock a LG Phone

How To Unlock An LG Phone

Using an unlocked phone makes it easy for users to choose from cheap SIM only deals available

across the country. It also makes it easy for users to pass on their old phone to a family member

or friend. However, not many people know how to unlock their phones. If you own an LG

model, here’s how to unlock an LG phone:

 It is not illegal to unlock your phone in the US and Canada. If you are outside the contract

period, call your carrier and ask them to do it for you. Different carriers have different

policies for unlocking phones – you will have to check with the company about charges if

any.

 And if you are within the contract period, call us with information about your IMEI number,

make and model.

 How do I get the IMEI number, you ask? Press *#06# on your phone.

 Send us your email address for us to send the unlock code

 We’ll send in the code after you’ve made the payment, i.e. within 24 hours after we’ve

received the money.

 Insert the new SIM card and enter the code when prompted.

 Your phone is now unlocked and free to be used with any network carrier.

 But before calling us, make sure the new SIM card is compatible with the device – CDMA

phones do not work on GSM carriers.
