Mobile Number Portability (MNP) - And Mobile Locator

Mobile Number Portability
Most of us are aware of the Mobile Number Portability (MNP). Mobile Number Portability (MNP) has become available nationwide in India since January 20, 2011. All the Regulations/Orders/Directions in connection with the MNP are available on the website of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). To visit the page of the site, click here .

As we know, with the facility of Mobile Number Portability (MNP), the user shall be able to change the mobile service providers / operators without changing the existing mobile number. In the situation, one cannot tell the name of the service provider just having a glance at the number.

Customer guide for availing the facility of Mobile Number Portability

There is a well-known free SMS service provider site, way2sms. They provide a facility called ‘Mobile Locator’ whereby one can identify the place of the phone-call and at the same time they provide us the name of the service provider of such phone. To visit the ‘Mobile Locator’ page, click here .

Touch Screen Not Working - SAMSUNG GT-S5233S Mobile Phone

I had purchased a SAMSUNG GT-S5233S Mobile Phone sometime in August 2010. I told that story in my post SAMSUNG GT-S5233S MOBILE PHONE - A REVIEW.

Yesterday suddenly the touch - screen of the phone stopped working, nothing could be done with that, though the other features were full functional. But as you know, in absence of the screen menu the phone is almost dead! I searched online for remedial help, but got no fruitful result! Then started the common practice! Restarted the phone - opened the battery, SIM, memory card - reinstalled them and restarted the phone - but all in vain! Finding no other alternative today I rushed  to the nearest SAMSUNG Mobile Phone Service Center. There they changed the screen only and it again started working. That was a hardware error. I also put a screen guard (cost `150/- only ) as they advised.
