Mobile Downloads

There are all kinds of mobile downloads available to customize your cellular phone today, but by far the most popular are ring tones. Cellphone ringtone mobile downloads seem to be everywhere nowadays. Back a few years ago, You could program your own cellular ring tones, and did not need the mobile downloads at all, but then again the possibilities were pretty limited. The phone was little better than an fm chip with a built in primitive synthesizer as far as tones went. Nowadays, thanks to mobile downloads, everyone goes around programming their very favorite songs into their cell phone. From Mozart to Motley Crue, mobile downloads have really made it possible for people to express their musical interests in their phones, and through these interests, to express a little bit of who they are as people.

Of course, there are all kinds of other mobile downloads as well. For example, Mobile game downloads have proven to be almost as popular as the tones are. This is because people really love their video games. Personally, as a former video game junkie, I think that mobile games downloads are a really bad idea. They allow people to carry their addiction everywhere with them. Before mobile downloads became so widespread, you at least knew that, unless you owned a gameboy, you could not play your games while you were out of the house. Cell phones really changed all that. With mobile downloads, you can play the games almost anywhere, and that is a fact. It really is a very unfortunate thing, if you ask me, because the rate of addiction is just so high in this country, even without all of the mobile downloads.

Of course, the only mobile downloads that are really useful (although none of them are necessary) are the ones which can provide you with information. For example, some of them will be able to give you an up to the minute report on the weather anywhere in the world. Other ones will be able to tell you the headlines and a short summary of all of the important news stories which are just breaking. There are even some mobile downloads which can give you continuously updated stock reports from any of the major stock markets. Personally, I think that all of this information is overrated. I mean, who can't wait until they get home to see how their stocks are doing?

Buy A Mobile Phone

There are so many choices when you buy a cell phone, that it is really hard to tell where to go. Buying a cellular telephone is one of the easiest and one of the hardest things to do, as they can now be found in any place from Radio Shack, to gas stations, to specialty cellular phone stores. For me, it has never made sense to buy a mobile phone at all. I have always subscribed to plans that do not make me buy a mobile phone, but instead give me one for joining. That way, I can save money on service, and save money through not having to buy a mobile phone in the first place, and that is something that I really like. The only problem is that for many people, cell phone plans are not really the way to go.

For one thing, there is the contract. You might want to get a plan now and avoid having to buy a mobile phone, but what about several months from now? All kinds of problems can happen with your cell phone between now and then. For one thing, you can find that service is patchy. It might be quite strong in your area, but what if you move or have to spend a whole lot of time in a part of town without a cell phone tower nearby? You might be in for a year or more of only being able to use your cell phone every once in a while all because you were too cheap to buy a mobile phone.

The situation becomes even trickier if you decide to move into a different state, especially one far away. Many of the best plans are only made by local area cell companies. You will have to buy a mobile phone all over again and switch plans if you go to the other state. I have even heard that, sometimes, when you buy a mobile phone for one plan, it will not work if you switch to a different cellphone service provider. This is an awful situation, because you will be left with a perfectly good, working mobile phone that you can do nothing with. Really, unless you are quite sure about where you are living and what you are doing with your life for the whole of your contract, you should just buy a mobile phone, rather than subscribe to a long term calling plan.

Prepaid cellular phones

I was a big holdout before I finally broke down and got myself a cellular phone. I didn’t really think it was that more convenient than using a land line, and I definitely didn’t want people to get a hold of me whenever they wanted to. I liked the little bit of anonymity I had and usually despised it when friends would get up from a nice dinner to answer their cell phones. It didn’t help the matter that most of my friends were spending between twenty and forty dollars every month to cover their cell phone bills; the only way I could afford to pay that much for a phone was if I decided to stop eating for a month or two.

You’ll note that all of the last paragraph was in past-tense since I did, in fact, buy a cell phone. It wasn’t the standard pay-through-the-nose plan though; I got a prepaid cellular phone and managed to get almost all of the perks of cell phone usage without the gigantic fees or multi-year commitments. I picked up a Virgin prepaid cellular phone from Target and, with a special sale, got the phone for free. Unlike most cellular phone plans which require multi-year commitments and huge fees for using too many minutes, prepaid cellular phones allow you to top up time in the same way that you add time to a phone card. Though the individual minutes are more expensive ($.25 for the first 10 minutes of every day and $.10 for every minute thereafter, no roaming and no time restrictions, text messages for $.10 apiece) if you’re not using your cell phone very often you can end up saving a lot of money. I usually end up paying only $10 or so every month for my service, which is a lot better than what most of my friends are paying.

Regardless of the service provider, prepaid cellular phones do have their drawbacks. One of the best perks my friends with standard cellular plans have is that they usually get free nights and weekends, which I don’t get with my prepaid phone. The phone isn’t quite as good as the phones which usually come either for free or at steep discounts with the standard plans, though my phone was free, has a full color screen, and has full internet access, so I can’t complain too much. Overall, I’m extremely pleased with my prepaid cellular phone, though I wouldn’t suggest it to anyone who plans on spending a lot of time talking on his or her cell phone.

Cellular phone concept

We sure love our cellular telephones. Heaven forbid we'd every have to survive without them. I'm fairly certain the world would fall apart if such an event were to occur. My question is; how are so many people using their cell phones so much? I mean really, what are they chatting about and who are they talking to. I know that all of those calls can't be too important. I believe since everyone has a mobile phone now days, they simply take them for granted as much as humanly possible. They gat board on the way home from work and they call their spouse to talk about virtually nothing. Or they're sitting in a shopping mall having lunch and they call up a friend to chat about whatever. Hmm, I guess these handy little phones are much more than emergency devices. But what about the kind of mobile phone you purchase? Is this really all that important? Does it have to be a Razr as opposed to an older model? Does it have to be fresh out of Best Buy or can you acquire a pre owned cell phone?

I have a new take on the cellular phone concept. Like the Internet, our cell phones can reveal plenty of information. I think it's safe to say that we've all seen or heard about the Paris Hilton cell phone photos, and the sexual predators trying to contact young teens on their cell phones. Mobile phones are definitely a window of some sort. Information can leak out and strange people can get in. So where does this leave the pre owned cell phone? Well, there just may be oodles of information left on that mobile telephone if it wasn't properly disposed of. Quite possibly information that you don't want anyone else to have access to. Now, what you need to do it either switch the memory card, erase it, or remove the battery. Something that will actually destroy the data you once used. The last thing you want is for someone to purchase your pre owned cell phone and have access to crucial information.

The media is now saying that tons of information has been passed on through pre owned cell phones. Pictures, phone numbers, and other personal information have been compromised. You won't catch me selling my cellular phone. I'd rather destroy the darn thing.

Differences Of Digital Cellular Phones And Analog Phone

Cellular phones are an amazing modern convenience, but it can be confusing for consumers to distinguish between the various options available. There are two main types of cellular phones: analog and digital. Each type operates slightly differently and has its own unique advantages and disadvantages.

The first cellular phones were analog phones. Analog phones are basically an extremely sophisticated radio and telephone combination. The main advantage of analog cellular phones is that they cost less than the newer digital phones. Analog phones are also a better choice for travelers, since 95 percent of the county is equipped for their use. The drawbacks of choosing an analog phone are the reduced sound quality and the slightly higher per minute rate.

Digital cellular phones use the same basic technology as an analog phone. The difference is that digital phones use binary code and compression to fit more calls into a given bandwidth. Digital cellular phones offer longer battery life, better signals, and cheaper calling rates. The main disadvantage of digital cellular phones is that many parts of the country aren’t equipped with the proper antennae to receive digital signals. This makes digital cellular phones inappropriate for frequent travelers or individuals who live in rural areas.

Sprint often uses the term PCS in their promotional materials. PCS stands for Personal Communications Service and is a wireless communications service very similar to cellular phone services. Many people use the term PCS as a synonym for a digital cellular phone, but a true PCS phone offers additional services such as caller ID, paging, and e-mail as part of its regular phone service.

Newer cellular phone models may offer a dual mode feature. This option allows you to automatically switch between analog and digital modes depending upon what antennae are in your range. Dual mode phones combine the advantages of both analog and digital cellular phones.

Drawbacks And Disadvantages Of Cellular Phones

Cellular phones are in schools, banks, malls, and homes across the country. While cellular phones have been an important technological advancement, they’re not without their drawbacks.

Reliability is one of the most significant disadvantages of cellular phones. Many people have replaced their land-line home phones with cellular phones, but this could prove problematic in a true emergency. If your house is on fire, dead batteries and weak signals are the last things you should be worrying about. Dropping your land-line service may seem like an easy way to save a few dollars, but in most cases it’s not worth the risk.

Cell phones can also be easily damaged by improper handling and storage. Non-repairable corrosion can result if you expose your cellular phone to water or use wet hands to push the buttons. Exposing your cellular phone to excessive heat can damage the battery or internal components. Leaving your cell phone in extremely cold temperatures could possibly cause a temporary loss of the screen display.

While it won’t endanger your life or harm your phone, cellular phone “cloning” will damage your bank account. A phone is cloned when someone steals its unique electronic serial number and telephone number. This allows the thief to charge unauthorized calls to your account. If you think you have been a victim of cloning, contact your cellular phone carrier immediately.

Subscriber fraud is similar to cloning and occurs when a thief steals your personal information to sign up for a cellular phone account in your name. Once you’ve discovered that you’ve been the victim of subscriber fraud, it can be difficult to prove to your cellular phone carrier that you did not incur the charges.

Cellular phones are integral part of life for many individuals, but it’s important to be aware of potential problems that may arise from their use. Like any other modern electronic device, cellular phones are not without their drawbacks.

Reverse Cellular Phone Search

People run a reverse cell phone search for all sorts of reasons. Maybe they want to know whose phone number keeps showing up on their spouse's cell phone. Or perhaps they keep getting harrassing call from one number in particular. Whatever the reason, a reverse cell phone search lets you instantly find out who is the owner of the phone.

You have two options when conducting a reverse cell phone search. Although you won't find any free databases where you can run a search, the next couple of paragraphs will show you how to find out the information on your own at no cost. You can also use a paid service to find out detailed information, although I always recommend trying the free way first.

Get a hold of the phone number you want to investigate and go to google. Type in the phone number in the following way: "555-555-5555" and click search.

Have a look to see what results come up. People will fill out phone numbers online for all sorts of reasons. Maybe they are posting a classified ad or filling out a profile page. If the phone number is published on the world wide web, google will pick it up.

If you see a match in the results, have a close look at what you see. Is the name of the owner listed? Can you determine where he/she lives? Depending where you find the phone number you may or may not get all the information you are looking for.

It's also a good idea to try at Yahoo and MSN to see if anything different turns up. These searches are obviously completely free so it's the best place to start when doing a reverse cell phone search.

Many times your search will turn up the information you need. Other times you will have to look elsewhere. Obviously, not every phone number has been published on the world wide web.

Fortunately you can easily find out exactly who owns a phone number by using a paid service. The fees are small and not only will you find out the name of the owner, but you will also get address, carrier and location details.

A paid reverse cell phone search is the easiest way to instantly get the information you need, but make sure you look for two things when you use this type of service. The companies that provide this service pay good money to have access to private owner records so they do charge a nominal fee.

First, get a guarantee. Although 98% of the time you will find the information you need, it's good to have a guarantee so you can get a refund just in case.

Second, use a service that charges a one-time flat fee for unlimited searches. You only have to pay once and can then come back and use the database whenever you want. It's your best bet.

If you want to do a free sample search go to This will give you a good idea of how these services work. It always amazes me how quickly you can play "detective" and get this information.

A reverse cell phone search comes in handy in many different situations. I always recommend trying to find out the information for free at first, and then considering a paid service if that doesn't work. This lets you instantly get the info you need simply by clicking a few buttons.

All the best!

Cellular Memory Release - Energy Healing Modality

This article presents a new Energy Healing (EH) modality that uses Cellular Memory Release as a practical, effective treatment for depression. However, in order to understand cellular memory, it is important to first review prior developments within complementary and alternative medicine that have led to this new treatment.

Energy Medicine

The International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine (2005) defines Energy Medicine as “all energetic and informational interactions resulting from self-regulation or brought about through other energy linkages to mind and body.” Energy Medicine has been recognized by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM, 2004) as one of the eight leading areas of Integrative Medicine. Recognizing that humans are capable of generating and controlling subtle, not-yet-measurable energies that seem to influence both physiological and physical mechanisms, NCCAM has defined the theory of subtle energies as putative energy fields. Examples of putative energy fields include qi in traditional Chinese medicine, ki in Japanese as Kampo system, dosha in Ayurvedic medicine, and elsewhere as parna, etheric energy and homeopathic resonance (Hintz, Yount, Kadar, Schwartz, Hammerschlat, & Lin, 2003).

Cellular Memory

Virtually every behavioral pattern exhibited during routine activities of daily living results from learned data, which is stored or encoded as “cellular memory.” Most of these behavioral patterns are benign, in that they do not contribute significantly to cellular destruction (i.e., disease). However, some patterns are expressed as significant reflections of traumatic-encoded cellular information. In the 1990s, McClaskey (1998) and Van der Kolk and Fisler (1995) concluded that it is imperative that the primary focus of intervention involves isolating and decoding causative traumatic cellular-memory patterns in order for therapy to have a lasting effect. More recently, studies of cellular memory have documented anecdotal non-normal experiences of organ transplant recipients. For example, the recipients developed new personality traits, food cravings and interests after having a transplant (D’Alberto, 2003; Kronemyer, 2000; Linton, 2003).

This new approach to release harmful cellular patterns has been termed “Bio-Energy Medicine.” Through this approach, a client’s consciousness is cleared in order to access the origination point of his/her illness. Thus, the disease is released from the consciousness at the cellular level. The following case study demonstrates how Cellular Memory Release aids in alleviating the adverse effects of depression.

Case Study

Shelley telephoned and said: “Ten days ago, I was in bed, barely existing in a label of life-long, treatment-resistant depression, sobbing, helpless and hopeless. Even with years of classes, therapy, medications and constant affirmations, I was still separate from myself and my truth.”

Upon hearing her words, desperation and helplessness were evident in her sobbing voice. She could hardly talk, and it was clear that she was at the end of her “rope.” Although she did not know it yet, this crisis would be the turning point for her to take her life back.

Shelley used this new approach, Bio-Energy Medicine, to get to the root of her depression. She did not have to be hypnotized, be poked with needles, or use various rituals. Instead she simply became an observer, without emotional attachments, and consciously asked her body “What is the cause of my depression?” This led her to the core issue, which was stored in her cellular memory, and then she chose to release the traumatizing experience from her cells in order to live in the present. After the cellular release, she remarked: “I feel desire and connection within every cell of my body. After releasing the depression that was stuck in my body, I now have a new beginning. I am whole and one with myself for the first time!”
