Did you know that this year you can take your cell phone in the polls to vote? You can use your phone for notes to help you vote. You can not take photos while inside of the polls.
So if you have a ballot on your phone that you want to use when you go in the voting booth, then take your phone. I love that!
As I watch the police arresting black folks be the in the right or in the wrong the only thing missing for me is the dogs. When I see the actions of the police arresting these blacks I immediately think when they going to bring out the dogs?
Some folks say it is worst now, some folks say they thought it had gotten better. I say the cameras are showing us that very little has changed. If anyone thinks this mess just began, then you better go back to sleep because obviously you ain’t awake.
The problem today is that the black man that invented the cell phone didn’t realize that he was really doing something more awesome than what it intent was. A cell phone is a dangerous weapon because you can either hit the voice record or the video. I ain’t leaving home without my weapon!

There are a few things that can be done in times of
Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an
emergency tool for survival.
Check out the things that you can do with it:
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you
find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there
is an Emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing
network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly,
this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.
SECOND (Hidden Battery Power)
Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press
the keys *3370#. Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the
instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get
charged when you charge your cell phone next time.
THIRD (How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone? )
To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the
following Digits on your phone:
A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is
unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe.
If your phone is stolen, you can phone your service
provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your
handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be
totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least
you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody
does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

option, simply dial:
(800) FREE411 or (800) 373-3411
without incurring any charge at all. Program this into
your cell phone now..
