Check Out These Tips To Master Your IPhone

Did you know you can instantly video chat with someone on the latest versions of the iphone? You can also talk to your phone and have it complete simple commands for you as well. This is how much iphones have advanced in recent years, and they are only getting better.

To get the most from Siri, use this tip to assign nicknames and relationships for each of your contacts. For example, you can tell Siri, “Jane Johnson is my mother.” Siri will then request confirmation to link this information to Jane’s contact number. Now, you can tell Siri to “Call Mom,” and she will automatically bring up your mother’s phone number.

If you accidentally drop your iPhone into water, do not proceed to turn it on! This can cause permanent damage to your phone because it will be short-circuited. Instead, you should use a towel to lightly dry it. Never use a hairdryer because this can push the moisture into the dry areas. Keep your phone in a bag or bowl of uncooked white rice overnight. If you do this, you have a better chance of reviving your phone.

It is the world of phone applications, and pretty soon phones are going to replace laptops. If you haven’t already gotten into iphones and using applications, you need to get started now. There are a world of different applications out there that can handle much of your daily business.

If you are having issues with your IPhone, preform a “hard reset”. Press the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time until you see the power off slider appear on the screen. Use it to shut down your phone completely before restarting. This method can fix many minor issues.

As you can see, iphones are truly one of the most advanced pieces of technology on the planet today. Do not be left behind in the stone ages, and get one of the latest versions of the iphone today. It will definitely change your life for many years to come.

Looks like Samsung overtook Nokia in Phone handset sales!

For its first time looks like Samsung probably has over taken Nokia in Phone Handset Sales reported Jun Yang in Seoul on Bloomberg today reprinted below…

Samsung Electronics Co. (005930), Asia’s largest electronics maker, probably overtook Nokia Oyj (NOK1V) as the top handset seller for the first time, helped by the popularity of the Galaxy smartphones, according to analyst estimates.

The South Korean company may have shipped about 92 million mobile phones, including basic types, in the first quarter, according to the median of five estimates in a Bloomberg News survey. Nokia sold 83 million units, with 12 million smartphones and 71 million low-end models, during the three-month period, the Espoo, Finland-based company said yesterday.

The gap could end Nokia’s 14-year reign in the global mobile-phone market. While Samsung has been benefitting from the popularity of Galaxy phones running Google Inc. (GOOG)’s Android operating system, Nokia has been losing market share as consumers choose the iPhone from Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Android devices over products using its Symbian software.

“Samsung is displacing Nokia fast,” Lee Sun Tae, a Seoul-based analyst at NH Investment & Securities Co., said by phone.“Nokia, with no competitiveness in smartphones, will keep losing ground.”

James Chung, a Seoul-based spokesman for Samsung, declined to comment on the numbers, citing company policy not to disclose handset shipment figures. Doug Dawson, a spokesman for Nokia, also declined to comment on the analysts’ estimates.

Samsung, based in Suwon, South Korea, last week reported first-quarter operating profit that exceeded estimates.

Nokia is allying with Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) to adopt the U.S. company’s mobile-phone operating system, instead of joining Samsung, HTC Corp. (2498) and other companies in using Android, to recover market share.

Nokia reported an operating loss for its mobile-phone division yesterday, while forecasting earnings won’t recover this quarter as emerging market handset sales slumped and margins on smartphones shrank.

Nokia declined as much as 7.8 percent to 3.01 euros in Helsinki, the lowest intraday price since April 1997, and traded down 7.5 percent as of 12:33 p.m. local time. The stock slumped 14 percent yesterday.

“Nokia is slower than expected in responding to the smartphone market, whereas Samsung is doing better with models like the Galaxy Note,” said Kim Young Chan, a Seoul-based analyst at Shinhan Investment Corp. “The net result is Samsung edging out Nokia faster than expected.”

Samsung fell 2.9 percent to 1,273,000 won at the close of trading in Seoul. The stock has climbed 20 percent this year, outperforming the benchmark Kospi index’s 8.8 percent advance. Nokia has declined 20 percent in the period.

Kim said he had forecast Samsung’s overall handset shipments would surpass Nokia’s from the second half this year.

Samsung probably sold 44 million smartphones in the first quarter, more than tripling from a year earlier, Matt Evans, a Seoul-based analyst at CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, said in an April 2 report.

Samsung, which plans to introduce a successor to the Galaxy S II by June, is still facing competition from Apple.

“The S III is going to come just before the iPhone 5 launches,” Carolina Milanesi, an analyst at Gartner Inc. said.“Although Samsung seems to be doing no wrong in the Android camp, I think with the Galaxy S III it is going to struggle to get the same success as the S II had.”

Well, I’m still anxious to see that Galaxy S III when it comes out this summer!
