European WAP Providers Locking-In Users

from the silly-providers dept

Apparently some European telecommunications companies are locking in WAP phones so that they can only show a particular start page. This makes it more difficult for users to switch services. It also makes it more of a pain for users. Policies like this are really stupid. They don’t do any good for the customer, and serve only to annoy them.

Not only MOBILE SECURITY but much more..(READ IT)

Hello Sir/Madam,

One does not realize how valuable something is until it is lost….
And thus feel same when our handset is LOST..
It is not only the HANDSET we lose but an equally important DATA also..
And considering all these consequences our company planned to launch MSM ie
Maverick Secure Mobile Application.

What is Maverick Secure Mobile(MSM)?
Maverick Secure Mobile(MSM)is a security application.Secure mobile helps you
to protect your data,track your stolen device,retrieve your phonebook
& disable the stolen device remotely.The application works in hidden mode &
cannot be viewed in the device.To launch/Customize this application one has
to press pre defined short keys and password.After installing MSM in the
device one must as “Reporting Contact” in the application.Reporting contact
can be your second number/friends number or any other number on which you
want to receive all the reports.

1.Protect Your Data :Incase of thief/loss,the moment SIM change is
detected,MSM will encrypt all the data on the device like the
Phonebook,Images,Messages,etc.Now one can be assured about the privacy or
misuse of the data on the device.

2.Track Device :Incase of thief/loss,the application will send the Phone
Number,Device Id,Country Code,Operator Name and Area Code(location) to the
Reporting device through sms.
Secure Mobile will also report about activities performed on the stolen
device via SMS like Outgoing Calls Made, Incomming Calls Received,Sms
Sent/Received,New Contacts Added to phonebook detailed…

3.Retrieve Phonebook :The most important data on any device are the
contacts.using MSM one can retrieve phonebook from the stolen device,the
entire phonebook will be retrieved by sending sms contact=all from the
reporting device.As soon as the stolen device receives sms it will start
sending the entire phonebook through SMS,and the funny thing is by using the
data plan of the thief.

4.Spy Call :If the owner calls from the reporting device to the stolen
device,it will be termed as Spy Call. Spy Call will switch the Loudspeaker &
Mic of the stolen device remotely,so that the caller can actually listens to
the conversation.This call will not give any notification/ring to the stolen
device.the person who receives spy call will not be able to know he is being
called by the owner.Even if he comes to know about the spy call,he cannot
disconnect the spy call.

5.Raise an alarm and disable the phone :To disable stolen device
remotely,send sms=hang from the reporting device to the stolen device,and it
will raise an alarm and start playing a loud Siren.MSM will also display a
customized message.Here,one can put his Name,Address,Alternate number and
Award Amount.

6.Data back Up :Secure Mobile has a distinct feature of incremental Data
Backup.Using this feature once can backup all the data from the device to
secure remote server .So now all your data is very much secured and you can
retrieve it without any hassle.

It not only works when STOLEN but also can be used as PARENTAL CONTROL and
many more.
