Stay Connected while on Flight



Technology has made our lives easier and there is no limit what more technology can add in all sphere of our lives. Here comes another Revelation! now you can use your cell phones in the sky and stay connected while on the move.

Emirates is the first airline which has launched mobile phone usage in its planes while Qantas is exploring opportunities in the similar option.Traditionally we used to make calls built behind our airplane seats which costs us more than $10 plus a connection fee. Now the same call can be made between $1-2 /Min as International Roaming rates still apply, In case you think i have a World SIM , then my friend you have to be in this world (earth) to use it, at 3000 feet above the surface you  cannot expect more at this point of time.

U.S. carriers don't allow in-flight cell phone calls, although the Federal Aviation Administration is reviewing the safety concerns associated with mobile calls made in the air? Conducting a study looking at whether portable electronic devices like cell phones interfere with aircraft navigation systems or not.

Dying US Airline service needs a new add on service to survive and to attract new customers.I think airlines should partner with Telecom service provider to provide services on board. At this moment of time this feature actually doesn't have any any incentive for the Airlines.

Apple iPhone4 - Reception Issues

Apple iPhone 4, the much hyped phone of the decade is under criticism from consumer reports for it's reception glitches.The market but has been plagued by complaints of poor reception which sold 1.7 Million units in 3 Days after launch.


When your finger or hand touches a spot on the phone's lower left side , the signal can significantly degrade enough to cause you to lose your connection. Although iPhone 4 scored high on other testing grounds such as battery life, sharp display and high-quality video camera.


The Signal issue only happens when you hold the phone a certain way and if you put a case on it, you won't have any problems. This is an hardware issues so Apple can't fix them, till they come out with the next generation iPhone.



The second minor issue is of yellow spots,(Shown in a red circle) is a temporary issue which i think would fade away when you use it.

Fix:- just get any pair of gloves, latex, cotton/acrolyic/wool and keep in handy with you. When you need to make a call ,put them on, the phone will work with no dropped calls.

International Travel - Watch Out! for International Roaming


 Hello Travelers, Let me start from a quote from Thomas Fuller "Travel makes a wise man better, and a fool worse". Traveling is a best way to learn new things, keeping your mind always freshen up, to do things with full creativity.


International Roaming is a bomb which you carry with you in a form of a cell phone which will burst your wallet anytime you call using your present cell phone while Traveling abroad. Roaming is an extension of connectivity service when you go beyond the boundaries of US, Roaming means when you are not using your default carrier ; you are actually on a foreign one. Best way to save yourself from these stupendous charges is use an International SIM Card. Being a Traveler myself i want to make sure my colleagues are not slipped with huge money by the Service providers. As the world is converging the service carries should bring a cost effective plan for the international travelers. The only prerequisite of using a International SIM, is you need an Unlocked Cell Phone

Benefits of International SIM:-

  • Free Incoming (Calls + Text)
  • Low Call back Charges to US
  • Follow me Service
  • Outgoing calls same as Local outgoing rates.

Trick for Saving money on International Travel:-
Use skype for calling, put your cell phone in flight mode, In Flight mode your cell phone would stop communicating with the service provider; your cell phone signal would be dead. You won't receive or make calls and would not receive any Data too. Use airport Wifi or any other Wifi for browsing and stay connected using any social media platform like Facebook.
