MTN has introduced a new "Collect Call Service" which allows users on the MTN network make calls to friends and families with zero airtime.

With the new MTN Collect Call Service, the call recipient will have to accept responsibility to pay for the incoming voice call.



Below are the benefits of MTN Call Service

  • MTN users will be able to call your friends and families with a zero credit.
  • MTN users will not be charged a connection fee or a subscription fee for using the service.

Now to the important question of "How do I enjoy the MTN collect call service?"

Simply follow the instructions below:


  • Dial *121*Your friend number# e.g *121*08130000000# 
  • The system would check if your friend has the minimum airtime required
  • Also check you are in the allowed tariff plan
  • Also check if your friend is in the allowed tariff plan
  • Also check if your friend is available on the network
  • While the system is performing these checks, you will hear voice prompts saying "Call in progress. Please wait while your call is being connecte"
  • After all the above conditions are checked and verified, the call recipient will be notified: "Welcome to MTN Collect call service. Press 1 to accept, 2 to reject, 3 to accept and add to white list, 4 to reject and add to black list."
  • If the call recipient presses 1 to accept the call, you will be connected
  • If the call recipient chooses other options, the call will disconnect and you will be notified: "Sorry, the call cannot be connected at the moment. Please try again later. Thank you!".
There you go, you can start making those important calls even if you have no airtime (as long as the call recipient accept to pay!)

When it comes to browsing tweaks, Tweakware remains the number one goto VPN for FREE UNLIMITED browsing as is the case with the latest Glo 0.0 FREE browsing cheat as well as the latest Etisalat Chatpak cheat via the latest Tweakware v5.5 VPN app.

However, if you are making use of the Tweakware FREE servers, it is has a daily usage data cap - thus making it important to subscribe to the Tweakware premium servers to ensure you browse, stream and download UNLIMITEDLY!!



Now, not everybody know how to upgrade their Tweakware for premium servers and I have been receiving requests from various persons on how to go about it.

So, I have decided to make a blog post to solve the issue once and for all.

HOW TO UPGRADE TO TWEAKWARE PREMIUM SERVERS

There are various Tweakware premium server plans:

The recession is clearly hitting the telecommunications industry in the country (NGR) as they are proposing a move ban data calls for the purpose of boosting the rate of profitability in phone calls.

This move is a drastic measure designed to boost revenue in light of the country's economic crisis which is currently weighing down businesses.



Telecoms companies in the country are planning to curb losses from international calls and meet a revenue target of N20 trillion by blocking subscribers from using Skype and other internet call services, called Over-the-Top, the Punch reported on Sunday.

In what is a crazy tech development, Adolph Hitler’s phone is up for auction!

Yeah, the Nazi's telephone which was used to make war orders of destruction and genocide is up for action!

Hitler's Siemens-made rotary handset was retrieved from his bunker after the capture of Berlin in 1945 and now the old "RED" relic of war is up for sale to the highest bidder.

hitler-phone-auction


The starting bid for the tech relic is set at $100,000 with bids are expected to go as high or beyond $300,000.




Personally, I'd rather get me a Google Pixel and the 2017 Porsche 712 Cayman than bid for this tech relic.

What do you think?


UPDATE: Hitler's "most destructive" weapon has been sold to the highest bidder who offered a whooping $243,000 (about N121,500,000)!!!

Mind blown!!!

We usually ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, but we seldom ask where they want to work. Well, 7-year-old Chloe Bridgewater already has her sights set: Google.

After her dad showed her pictures of Google offices decked out with bean bag chairs and slides, Chloe knew this was the company for her.


So, she handwrote a letter to the company, expressing her desire to work there.
"Dear google bossMy name is chloe and when I am bigger I would like a job with google. I also want to work in a chocolate factory and do swimming in the olympics."
In the letter, Chloe discusses her qualifications - she likes computers and has a tablet on which she plays games.

Facebook remains the largest social network platform and they do not play!

Facebook has over the years continued the improvement of the platform and just recently they launched the Facebook weather feature.

Now, reports says the launch of a new standalone TV app is imminent!

The new app will allow Facebook users watch videos from their friends and their 'liked' pages on TV, as well as watching the top live videos. 

Facebook would also - like YouTube - recommend videos based on ones users previously watched but on a much larger screen. 



The new app definitely gives Facebook a better chances of competing with the likes of streaming platforms YouTube and other traditional television channels.


Any user with Apple TV, Amazon’s Fire TV and Samsung’s smart TVs will be able to view Facebook’s user-generated videos through their own boxsets.

Quoting Facebook's  CEO, Zuckerberg stated:

The aim of any website is to attract as much traffic as possible. This is one of the key metrics website owners will present to prospective investors and advertisers.

In other situations, it may happen that you want to know the web traffic of your competitor. The truth is that no organization will publish their stats publicly.

Nonetheless, there are certain websites that can give you a fair idea or reliable traffic data of a competitor’s traffic. Below are top 5 tools for monitoring your web traffic.

According to a Facebook spokesperson:

"We (Facebook) are doing this because our goal is to develop products that connect people to the things they care about most and create moments of joy in people's day, like simply telling you that it's going to rain later,"

The Facebook weather app provides current conditions in your local area along with basic temperature predictions and a brief atmospheric forecast.

Whatsapp has officially rolled out the two-factor authentication to ALL users of the app. The feature has been around for a while but ony to BETA testers.

The official roll out of the two-factor authentication is a move in making the instant messaging platform safer to use for its over a billion users.

The two-factor authentication is essentially an enhanced security measure that adds a second layer to the log-in process, making it more difficult for intruders to access your account and it is quite well advised that you turn on the feature even though it is "optional".

If you choose to (and I strongly suggest you do) turn on the two-factor authentication for your Whatsapp, below are detailed steps on how to go about it

Apple’s iPhone is no doubt a masterpiece and the iStore provides a variety of useful utilities and applications, adding jewels to the crown. 
And the layout of the iStore is so appealing that lures you to put your time and efforts in checking out the available applications. 

However, there are some apps that you can do without to free up your device storage and improve productivity.
Below is a list of 10 such apps you should delete off your your device to free up space and improve your device productivity.


1. BBM



Remember when BBM was the most popular messaging solution for your iPhone? Remember when the latest trend was not a hello but asking for a BBM QR Code
Well that was a while ago and you haven’t touched it since more messenger apps were launched. Get rid of it and let this last vestige of BlackBerry fade into the ether.


2. Draw Something



We all enjoyed this virtual artistry for hours a day when it was all the rage, but when was the last time you played this game? Weeks? Months? Years? Yes, exactly. 
This game was simply three-week hype, and now it’s all faded. Today, your obsession with ‘Draw Something’ has been replaced by your obsession with Candy Crush or Dots. So go ahead and get rid of it.


3. Facebook Camera



Do you have this Facebook’s standalone camera app somewhere on your iPhone. Believe me, it’s useless. Unless you’re obsessed with having every photo filter app out there, Facebook Camera has no business being on your device. It does nothing well. Delete away.


4. Foursquare



Foursquare lets your friends know where you are and figuring out where they are. It allows users to find nearby friends, share their current location and collaborate to make plans. 

However, this app is useless. I mean, what’s the point in knowing where your friends are when they just checked-in on Facebook?


5. Google Earth



Kick this app to the curb. Yes, everybody has a default app for maps on their phones, so what’s a need for another app to bug up the phone storage?


6. Office apps


You don’t need Office apps on your iPhone. It would take up a lot of storage, plus, drain your battery. So, get rid of them. Instead, use these applications on a PC.


7. Poke


In late 2012, Facebook took aim at the latest threat to its social media empire, Snapchat, with a native app dedicated to the most mysterious of Facebook exchanges: the poke. 
This half-baked, knee-jerk response to the timed message craze reeked of “me too!” when it came out, and it hasn’t gotten any better since. You don’t need it. It is safe to say that even if you must poke, you don’t need a dedicated app to do so. Get rid of it.


8. Rhapsody



Rhapsody was never the best streaming music service, and now that there are so many better options – including Apple’s own iTunes Radio, Rhapsody is slowly fading away. Delete this thing and save your storage space.


9. Fatbooth



It might be fun (limited) laughing at how you and your friends would look like if they suddenly piled on the pounds and became twice their size. 
But that’s no excuse for why this app still taking up valuable space on your home screen.

And worst of all, it’s likely not the only one you’re keeping – apps that make your face look old; apps that switch your face with someone else’s; apps that turn your face into a cute manga-ish avatar.

10. Photosynth



The Photosynth app allows creating interactive images by stitching together a series of photographs. But it takes up a lot of memory.
So apart from the one or two test images you made, its likely Photosynth has lost in your Photography folder. It’s time to tell this app to get lost.

There you go, delete these junks and create storage for more important things.

The world around us is changing all the time, due in no small part to the breakneck pace at which technology continues to advance. 

Even two decades ago, surveillance tech was something that only governments and the wealthiest could enjoy. 
Flash forward to today, and for a few hundred dollars (often less), you can purchase a full HD wireless camera complete with night vision that is undetectable to the human eye that can also stream in real time over the internet.

Luckily, there are two sides to every story — particularly this one. Counter surveillance technology has continued to evolve at the same time as people cling to what’s left of their privacy more fiercely than ever.
