Lithium Ion Battery Has A 6 Month Warranty

I came to realise that when I took my Yes 4G huddle to Lot 10 to inquire why it switched off automatically. 

There is nothing wrong with the equipment but I was told the battery does not function as it should be. Well, the battery life has gone over its limit maybe. I bought the huddle in Mac 2012 and the warranty had expired.

 

The battery had already bloated and can’t even keep the power for more than 20 minutes. So have to buy a new one and it has another 6 month warranty from 18 August 2013.

  

Buzz Me

No, I am not asking readers to Buzz Me, but its the new mobile prepaid in town. The service uses U Mobile stations and thus the coverage is the same as U Mobile.

Today I signup for the package to use it on my iPad. FYI, before I already tried U Mobile but was not satisfied with the service and terminate it by not reloading after it expires. Then you might ask why again use another service that also runs in tandem with U mobile? This Buzz Me is run by another company M8. Go to their Facebook page or their website.

I subscribed to their data Plan B that is RM20.00 /500 MB. So far i have not run my iPad on this service yet. Save money la. Only when there is a need only I will switch on the service. If you want to use their service Data on Pay Per Use it is 5 cents per MB.

Buss Me Starter Pack

Initially i have to buy the start up card at RM10.00 with RM8.00 call credit. Then Top UP RM20.00 for the Data Plan. The card comes with 3 sizes all on one chip: Normal SIM, Mini SIM and Nano SIM. However if I want to reload it will be a bit of a hassle since i have to eject the Nano SIM and load it into a phone with normal SIM size. And of course I have to buy an adapter.

Top up might be easily available because it can be bought at 7E, Giants, Tesco, Petron, Caltex and also on ePay and Touch’nGo.

U Mobile Is Just Another Broadband Package

Last month after I won an iPad during a lucky draw, I went out in search of a Broadband package. I ended up subscribing to U Mobile since they had an attractive package for prepaid customers.

I thought it was a promising package but seems it is as worse as other Broadband packages in the country. They never fulfil their tagline. U Mobile boast as the fastest Broadband in the country. Even they said the speed can be 42Mbps but my prepaid package of M40 is only 7.2Mbps. That is what I was told by the guy at the counter at Berjaya Times Square.

Everything was just words. I hardly can get connected to the internet on U Mobile most of the time. So whenever I wanted to surf, I had to find a WiFi hotspots.

I had wasted RM 58 to subscribe to the package inclusive of a RM8 starter pack, RM40 compulsory reload and another RM10 to change from the normal Sim Card to a Nano Sin Card.

Why Apple Make Life Miserable?

I posted earlier about subscribing to U Mobile Broadband for my iPad internet access. Apple make things difficult for users when they introduce the nano SIM after Samsung (SIII) shrink them from normal SIM to Mini SIM.

When I subscribed I did not reload with the RM40 for internet access. When I visit U Mobile at Berjaya Times Square to change to Nano SIM card, the normal SIM I purchased earlier was made invalid when they move my subscription to the Nano SIM.

Well, I learn a new lesson. How to reload on the iPad. Personnel at U Mobile told me I cannot do it on my iPad. I have to buy a SIM adapter and reload it using the normal phone. So I had to fork out another RM10 for the adapter. Al in All before I can access the net on my iPad, I have to pay RM68.00.

So now you can see the hassle Apple created to their Apple mobile gadget user? Now I have to eject the Nano SIM, insert it into the adapter, shove it into a mobile phone, reload, eject, take out the Nano SIM and reinsert back into my iPad. It will be a routine, if I stay on.

I just wonder why not U Mobile follow YES when subscribers can reload online even if there is no credit in the account. Subscriber can still get connected to YES for the reload process. Technology should make life easier and not the other way round.

Waze Make Me Lost In Putrajaya

I wanted to test and try using waze this morning for my trip to Putrajaya. One on my mobile phone and another ony my iPad. 

Everything was smooth until I reached Putrajaya. Waze on my mobile phone lead me to Precint 11 when I set as Lebuh Perdana Putrajaya. At one point, the voice alert on mobile phone tell me to turn right while on my iPad asked me to turn left. I get lost in Precint 11. 

However I use my instinct tells me too ditch both GPS aided directions. I switch to google map and use it to guide me to Precint 2. It also helps that I some sort of knew Putrajaya and manage to arrive to my destination not with the help of Waze but Google map. 

So can you totally trust GPS aided route to reach your destination. However this maybe an isolated case because a few days back it lead me to the right location in Skudai. 

I am not accusing Waze of giving me the wrong direction but it just gave me the wrong direction. 

The night before I tested a route from Kinrara to my home in Jalan Bukit Jalil Indah 4 but it keep giving me the route to another location at Kinrara. 

I just wonder why waze do not have the function point on map just like Google Map. It can help if one do not not know the name of the location.

iPad And Nano SIM

I won a iPad at #SBB2013 @denaihati. remember I post in in my last update?

To own a iPad means I have to change from using Android platform to iOS. Its a totally new platform to me. Another thing I have to learn as if I am new to IT gadget. All this while I was already well acquainted with my Samsung Tablet and know what, when and how to manouvre it with ease. With the iPad I have to learn more new manouvre, tips and tricks. Hence I have to buy a guide book ‘BDM’s Definitive guide to : The New iPad”

I missed many controls that was on Samsung tablet but while getting along, I hope I can retain some if not all the controls.

Besides learning the ABC of iOS platform, I also have to join those who had to change from the normal SIM card to a Nano SIM card, the smallest of all the SIMS. However I am among those who walk through the shrinking of the SIM card.

When I bought my first handphone, a Motorola M400, the SIM card was a full credit card size. Then it shrink to the normal SIM that most of us are using today. When I bought a Samsung Galaxy S III, I learn that it uses a Mini SIM, which is smaller. Just imagine the man over the counter from whom I bought the phone did not tell me that SIII uses a mni SIM. I founf out the SIM than I had been using on my Blackberry can’t fit into the SIII, only I knew about the shrinking SIM.

I am not sure whether Malaysian Telcos have Mini SIM for subscribers because my normal SIM was cropped by a phone vendor the turn it into a Mini SIM.

I was not aware too that Apple too is making consumer’s life difficult by introducing the nano SIM. Wonder why Apple is so selfish that their product must not be able to cross into another platform and vice versa except only maybe for Windows. And that too the PCs.

I subscribed to U Mobile because of the better offer. A MB40 prepaid package provides 2GB cap when the same price from Digi only gives 500MB. I registered for the package for RM8 and top up for Broadband RM40.00. Then I have to change from the normal SIM to a Nano SIM for RM10.00. I wonder why don’t they just provide the Nano SIM immediately.
