I don’t know about other Galaxy S II users, but I have to reboot my Samsung Galaxy S II every other day. It isn’t a big pain, but it happens all the same. I use it as a wireless hotspot to get work done on a laptop PC on a regular basis.

After a while, a wind showed up and began to send the rain at those of us under the shelter of the station. I had to move. Moreover I had appointments to meet up with. I also needed to make an urgent phone call to make with respect to one of those appointments.
Some days ago, I published an article titled “What is the problem with Etisalat BIS and WordPress Mobile for BlackBerry?” In brief, I have been unable to setup and manage any WordPress account on the BlackBerry WordPress app. This article is a sequel to that. I mentioned the following in that article: – that it looked like an Etisalat issue because some other subscribers complained of similar issues – that Etisalat technical support got in touch and were able to
I am a big fan of the Windows Phone platform. The clean, elegant and smooth interface is exactly what I want in a mobile. I have been lusting after the Dell Venue Pro for months now.
