Driving Safely with Cell Phones

Tips for Using your Mobile When Traveling

Travelers realize it’s unsafe to yak on the phone and drive – and increasingly, it’s illegal to do so.

Business Traveler tips to promote safe driving and mobile talking practices:

  • Use hands free devices and speaker phone settings. A Bluetooth headset or earbud device is better than anything corded, as lines can get tangled and interfere with safe driving.
  • Use a car phone charger. If the phone is fully charged, you will fiddle with it less.
  • Don’t text and drive! Don’t send a text. Don’t read a text. The Wall Street Journal says, “In…Oregon, pending bills would provide fines — up to $720 in one of them — for any driver caught texting or holding a cell phone to an ear. And in Arizona, a bill is pending that would make DWT (driving while texting) a ticketable offense.”
  • Set speed dial options for items you know you will use before setting out. In particular, set up speed assignments for your hotel, business contacts, AAA or other roadside assistance, and airport phone numbers for your own flights or for anyone you may be picking up.
  • Be willing to pull over the vehicle and give a phone call your full attention. Find a safe place to park, like a parking lot for fast food, retail or gasoline. Use rest stops on the highways for driving breaks and phone conversations. Most US rest areas are clean and safe, at least during the day.
  • Learn your phone well. Know where everything is on your phone – redial, speed dials, volume, power switch, voice mail. Driving is not the time to wonder how to check the memo page or play with your iPhone settings.
  • Know state and country laws regarding yakking at the wheel. Some US states will slap you with fines for holding a phone while driving. Try Motorola’s Drive Safe, Call Smart round up of links for cell phone driving articles for the US, Canada and the UK. Business Week lists current US state handheld cell phone driving laws. For other countries, Cellular News offers a country listing chart.
  • Let your caller know you are driving and that driving safety and awareness must be your first priority.
  • Hold off on all important business calls for later, when you are safely at your hotel, the airport, or other non-moving destination.

Cell Phones for Travelers

National Geographic Introduces Phone that Works All Over World

A decade ago, having a cell phone while one backpacked through Europe would seem like a crazy idea. Today, while it’s not impossible to get around with out one, a cell phone can become a handy travel tool.

Enter National Geographic. Although it may not be the first company to come to mind – not sure what T-Mobile, Sprint and Orange were up to – National Geographic is helping travelers keep in touch as well as keep their communication expenses down.

Throughout Europe, as well as in dozens of others (105 at last count) users can get free incoming calls with the new National Geographic Talk Abroad Travel Phone. Rates for outgoing calls in Europe start at 90 cents per minute, while most other cell phone providers charge an average of $1.50 per minute for both outgoing and incoming calls. In other countries, the rate may be significantly higher. For example, outgoing calls in Iraq will cost the traveler about $2.50 per minute.

Phones can be either purchased or rented, depending on the travelers plans, and they do not require a contract because they work on a prepaid plan.

“With a prepaid solution, we’re avoiding cellular sticker shock,” says Markus Hutnak, of National Geographic.

The phones have a United Kingdom-based number and a special SIM card. Additionally, many travelers can just purchase the SIM card and snap it into their own phone.

While incoming calls are free for the person with the National Geographic phone, those who initiate the calls are charged standard international rates. Basically, if you’re calling your friend who may be around the corner in Germany, you’re going to be charged for a Germany to U.K. phone call. This might be where cellular sticker shock comes in.

“Our biggest clients are study-abroad students and tourists,” said Scott Nielsen, vice president of business development for Cellular Abroad, which is managing, distributing and servicing the phones. “Business travelers can expense their phone bills, so they don’t care as much about price gouging, but for tourists, the free incoming calls save users a lot of money.”

Hutnak, however, says recreationists and tour guides have also shown interest in the cellular service.

Also, although the phone will work in many countries throughout the world, it is dependent on cellular towers and will not work in some remote areas.

Cell Phones and the Classroom

Schools and Parents Should Adopt Clear Policies to Benefit Al

Cell phones began to become commonplace at the end of the 1990’s. They became smaller and digital and cheaper to use. The “calling plan” became popular, then prepaid minutes were ideal for people with bad credit or children whose chatter needed to be restricted. Text messaging turned out to be as popular as e-mail and was a way for kids to communicate without anyone listening in. However, the cell phones started to be omnipresent in many students’ hands, and caused a disruption in the classroom. It was easy for schools to ban use and possession of cell phones. There was no justification for students to have them. Then, September 11, 2001, the American view of safety changed. It seemed that the rules had to shift. Parents who previously cooperated with the school now defied the cellular ban—their kids were going to be able to contact them if another act of terrorism occurred. School officials were against the wall on this issue—if cell phones were banned, and an emergency situation arose, who might be liable? The ban was relaxed. Cell phones were not exactly encouraged, but administration turned a blind eye to the possession of them.

This is where the controversy lies—should cell phones be banned completely or should students be allowed to use them? Where do educators draw the line? Here are some of the issues that cell phone use by students has raised:

  • Does the school have the right to take cell phones from students?
  • When is cell phone use by students appropriate?
  • Do cell phones encourage drug dealing and gang-related activity?
  • How much of class time needs to be wasted when a student’s cell phone is stolen?
  • Should students be able to call their parents during class and have them listen in on the teacher’s reprimands to the class?
  • Should camera phones be allowed?
  • Should students be required to leave phones at home during state-mandated testing (makes cheating easier)?
  • Have there really been emergencies in which a student’s cell phone has been the savior?

There is no doubt that the cell phone is a wonderful convenience, but it has become a disruption to the educational environment. Parents and educators must work together to establish policies that are fair to all concerned, that address the issues that cell phone use have brought to the classroom.

Do Computers, Cell Phones Add to, Detract from Adventure Travel?

hard to remember now, but back in the days when we traveled barefoot in the snow, there were no cell phones, netbooks, or iPads lug around on trips to exotic locales: No. Now, of course, virtually every traveler leaves home, back bowed under the weight of electronic gadgets. But what do we really need when we travel? Do our travel computers, cell phones, and cameras add to our trip.? Or, by taking our focus away from our new and challenging environment and cosseting us with our Facebook friends and e-mails about family doings back home, do they actually detract from our adventures?

Adventure Travel Before Computers

Well, okay, maybe I never walked anywhere barefoot in the snow. But when I bought a plane ticket and a Eurail Pass and decided to sleep in hostels in what I cheerily called the “Europe on the bread and yogurt Plan,” I went without a cell phone (there weren’t any), a GPS (ditto), a computer (no lap tops in 1982) , digital cameras (are you getting the picture yet?) or an iPads. Not to mention all the accessories that go with them (different charger for each, ethernet cables, converters, adapters, a mouse, a case, cables, and the list goes on).

Fellow adventurers of a certain generation may recall how we barefoot travelers got messages in the age before e-mail. We didn’t use passenger pigeons, but our system wasn’t a whole lot more sophisticated: We’d give out an itinerary of where we expected to go, and those of us with an American Express card would check in at the American Express office in any large city, hand-rifling through the unguarded, more-or-less alphabetized stacks of letters and packages to see if anyone had sent us anything. Those without AmEx used poste restante. Phone calls were a buck or two a minute; more if you called from hotels. And those were 1980 dollars. (Plus you had to figure out the phones in another language.)

So most of us had limited contact with home, which increased our dependence on each other. If we were going to communicate with another human, we didn’t do it via wires, we struggled to find enough words to have a conversation at a hostel table where eight people spoke six different languages. There was a sort of immersion that occurred simply because, alone and disconnected from home, there was no choice but to jump into a new culture and try to stay afloat in it. There was the necessity of leaving one world firmly behind, and the act of doing so pushed us into another, even if it was at first difficult to figure out how to exchange pleasantries with the girl from Yugoslavia or the guy from Portugal. We couldn’t escape by gluing ourselves to the screens of our digital equipment. And we didn’t have to listen to someone else’s cell phone conversation when sitting in a hiking shelter in the middle of nowhere.

Computers, Netbooks, iPads, and Cell Phones for Travelers Considering Your Digital Needs

Your digital needs depend on you. For me, travel writing is a business, so I need to write and, upload stories, send e-mails, and take, download, and transmit good quality photographs with a good digital SLR camera. camera.

So I haul around an extra bag full of electronics. For an adventure traveler, that poses a problem: When you’re headed for poor countries and plan to stay in bare-bones lodgings (no safes, no uniformed security guards, no 24-hour front desk service, maybe even no locks on doors) keeping expensive equipment requires more vigilance and makes the traveler a bit of a target. Climate conditions – monsoons, dusty bouncing buses, sand and dirt – are also a problem. But assignments and editor questions come into my inbox whether I’m at home or wandering around Zanzibar or Machu Picchu.

That’s my excuse for traveling with ten pounds of digital gear. What’s yours?

  • You might be blogging, or researching cultural, environmental, or language details as you go.
  • You might want a phone with medical and health apps for emergencies in the bush. GPS, maps, and guidebook apps can help you find your way.
  • You might be taking really great photos (and isn’t it nice not to have to lug, care for, and develop film?).
  • If you have aging parents, children, urgent e-mails from bosses, and complicated financial issues that need attention, having communications tools at your fingertips may be the only way you get to take a long trip.

But there are not-so-good reasons, too: Are you really going to waste time on an African safari looking up sports scores or checking Facebook? When you’re huffing and puffing to the summit of Kilimanjaro, do you really need your iPad?

Here are a few issues to think about when considering which digital equipment you really need, for an adventure travel tour:

  • How much digital communication will be necessary? (Phone home once a week? Checking Facebook every day? Sending and receiving e-mails?) Can you get by with a simple international cell phone and occasional Internet access from an Internet cafe?
  • Which equipment can you absolutely not live without? (A camera would be my top choice, followed by a simple cell phone; Of course, many cell phones do both jobs).
  • Can electronic equipment such as a Netbook or an iPad earn its weight by making other things unnecessary (Guidebooks can be downloaded; the iPad has a GPS)?
  • What is the cost and availability of connectivity? In some countries, the cost of a month’s premium access might fund a whole week of budget travel. Can you get by with a pay-as-you-go phone?

Finally, remember that adventure is in part a process of stripping down and venturing into the world without safety nets and electronic umbilical cords. Indeed, the freedom you feel on a long adventure is in part a result of leaving not traveling with the kitchen sink (or its digital equivalent). At least, that’s what I learned when I walked barefoot in the snow.

How to Use Your Cell Phone as a Computer Modem

When connecting your computer to the Internet, there are many different options for hooking up the system to an Internet source. These include a wireless connection, high speed DSL and even cable connection. However, if nothing is available in the area, you may want to use a USB based Internet connection.

Although there are stand alone USB modems, most come in the shape of a cell phone. This allows you to hook up a cell phone to your computer system and use it to access the Internet. Having this option on hand is especially helpful if you are out of Wi-Fi range and need to access the Internet.

Download the Cell Phone Driver

Open the Internet browser on the computer (you must be connected to a different Internet source than the USB option to perform this download) and navigate to your cell phone’s manufacturing page.

Choose “Support,” “Drivers and Downloads,” then choose “Download” to download the drivers to the computer. In order for the computer to read and understand how to use the cell phone on the computer, you must have this driver installed on the system. Without it, the computer is not going to be able to use the phone as an Internet modem.

Install Cell Phone Driver

Double-click the downloaded driver file after it has downloaded to load the installation wizard onto the screen. Click “Next,” then accept the end-user agreement presented to you (you are not allowed to install the driver onto the computer if you don’t accept this), then click “Next” two more times to leave the installation name and location as-is. Select “Install” and the driver installed onto the computer.

Connect Cell Phone Modem

Plug the USB data cable into the USB port on the computer, then insert the cable into the USB connection on the modem. This is typically the power port used to charge the phone. Depending on the cell phone you have you may need to purchase a specialty USB cable directly from the cell phone company.

Power on the cell phone and select “Options” from the main menu. Due note this exact setup process may differ slightly, depending on the cell phone you are using. However, the actually sync process is going to be relatively similar, no matter what cell phone you are using.

Select “Internet Sharing,” then choose “PC Connection.” Choose “USB” from the list of options and then exit out of the menu on your cell phone. The computer automatically detects the connected modem, allowing you to access the Internet.

Best Power Bank in India (UPDATED FEB 2017)

How to pick the Best Power Bank in India

Powerbank Infographic

Power Banks have become one of the most important mobile phone accessories nowadays. Big screen smartphones, tablet PCs, notebook computers, digital cameras and other electronic are equipped to do diverse functions, leading to more frequent use, especially for business users and people who travel frequently.

Power Banks are critical to extending usage.

There are hundreds of power banks you can find online, but we are here to help you to choose the best one for your needs.

What you need to know about Power Bank capacity.

Power Bank capacity refers to how long the power bank battery can charge the gadget.

It is measured in mAh or milliamps for an hour. When a power bank is charging a phone, some of the charge is lost in the transfer of power. In simple terms, it takes energy to transfer energy. So, the real capacity is about 60% of the battery capacity listed on the Power Bank which has a high quality battery.

For cheaper Power Banks with inferior batteries, the real capacity is lower because the battery does not work efficiently.

 

Our Power Bank Recommendations

Sony CP-E3 3000mAH

Coolnut CMPBSUN-25 5200mAh

Syska Rainbow 8000mAH

F-EYE Power Bank 10400mAh

F-EYE FMPBJK-7 Best Power Bank 13000mAh



Tips You Should Know Before Buying a Power Bank Online

Between Lithium18650 and Polymer Li-ion batteries, always choose  Polymer Li-ion batteries.

  • They are lighter than Lithium18650,
  • Not prone to explosion,
  • More charging capacity than the average brand 18650,
  • Discharge characteristics are better, stable and have higher discharge platform as they use gel electrolyte rather than a liquid electrolyte
  • More safety and guarantee
  • Lithium18650 is of more weight, more heat produced.

Look at the conversion rate.

The level of mobile power conversion rate is one of the core measures. The amount of energy that can be converted into charging is them conversion rate which counts on the circuit board efficiency and the capacity of the battery.

Based on rated specification of the gadget’s battery, the number of “full charges” for that particular gadget can be determined. The more the conversion ratio and/or the capacity of the battery the more will be full charge cycles.

Try & assess the quality of the materials.

Check the Power bank internal structure to check whether the key parts are imported or domestic made ex: Boosting systems, Capacitors etc.

Check the product charge management system.

Power banks have an in-built charge management system. It adjusts the charging current according to the voltage of the Lithium namely pre-charge, constant voltage charging and floating charge.

Today Power banks mostly are of ordinary linear charge management, which is an old technology. It takes more than 15-20 hours for high-capacity rechargeable source to be full.

Smartphones use a pulse charge management which has multiple advantages such as low temperature, long battery life etc.

Check the product’s features.

There are respective features specified such as anti-reverse circuit design which can protect from damage. Dual interface design facilitating multiple electronic products to be used simultaneously is an obvious choice.

Figure out your needs.

For example, if you take a lot of long trips or are on the road a lot, consider buying high-capacity products otherwise a medium-capacity compact product would be your best choice.

Pay attention on the weight of the product.

Usually, try and go for a power bank that weighs around 600g-700g.

Being Courteous to Other People When Using a Cell Phone

 

People can get carried away using their mobile phone. Loud ring tones, arguments in public and continuous text messaging can be an imposition on others.

Choosing a Ring Tone

It can be tempting, and funny, to have an outrageous ring tone. For a little while other people might be amused by the sudden playing of the Beetles, the crow of a rooster, or whatever other ring tone has been chosen, however, eventually the novelty wears of and becomes annoying.

it is important to remember that unless the mobile phone is only used in private, other people will be exposed to the ringing of the phone. A ring tone should be adjusted to suit the situation. If taking a mobile into a restaurant it is appropriate to turn the phone onto silent or even off, if possible.

Using a Mobile Phone in Public Places

Sometimes it cannot be avoided that the phone has to be left on in a social setting. However, if possible this should be avoided.

Most people do not want to become part of a private conversation or a business one for that matter. It can be embarrassing for other people to have to listen to a private argument that may be ensuing on the mobile on a crowded train, in the morning on the way to work.

 

If going to the movies, a concert or the theater the phone should be switched off. There may be exceptional circumstances that mean the phone needs to be left on, and in that case it should be turned to silent.

A Mobile Should not be Used for Bullying

Bullying and intimidation with a mobile is not acceptable behavior. Most countries have laws against using a telephone device for means of harassment. Severe penalties are in place to avoid this type of behavior.

It also pays be to be cautious about text messaging. Text messages can be retrieved by telephone companies and used in evidence in court proceedings if need be.

Using a Mobile to Take Photos

Some people do not like to be photographed. When using the camera on a mobile care should be taken so as not to offend someone or get into trouble for taking photos without the approval of that person or those persons.

When to Turn a Mobile Off

Public places like hospitals have strict rules about turning mobile phones off. Similarly there are strict rules about leaving the mobile off on a plane, as it interferes with navigation equipment.

Court rooms also enforce a phone off policy. There are some Judges or Magistrates that will confiscate a mobile till the end of the day if it rings during court time in their court.

Good manners are important in all aspect of life. Using a mobile phone thoughtfully will ensure a harmonious relationship with fellow individuals.

To ensure good phone etiquette takes a little bit of thought about others. It is not difficult to be courteous to others when using the phone.

Adjusting the ring tone to suit the situation, turning it off when appropriate and ensuring conversations on the mobile are limited in social settings will ensure good phone etiquette.
