Increase the SMS limit in Android (100 SMS per hour to unlimited)

No Comments »

 

Make sure you got rooted phone.

  • Install Android SDK (for basic command line tools, such as ADB)
  • Add Android tools to the PATH
  • Turned on USB debugging on Phone
  • ┬áConnect with USB Cable, USB Drivers must be installed (with SDK etc)

Open Command Terminal and enter the following:

adb shell
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

adb shell
sqlite3 /data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db

Then you’ll see:

sqlite>

Then enter the following to alter the limit

INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES('sms_outgoing_check_max_count', 101);

(change 101 to your new limit)

I didnt try altering the limit so I hope it works for you guys.. but I can confirm this next one works. It completely turns off the limit altogether.

To turn off the limit enter:

INSERT INTO gservices (name, value) VALUES('sms_outgoing_check_interval_ms', 0);

Windows Mobile joins the party after Apple (iPhone) and Google(Android) Sued

No Comments »

After a week windows mobile 7 also joins the party along with Google Android and Apple iPhone, both companies are sued against stealing user sensitive data (like GPS cordinates which is user's pin point location) from user's mobile devices and transmitting over internet then stored at Google and Apple databases.

CNET reported the location tracking on Monday, almost a week after reports of similar tracking in Apple's iPhone and Google's Android mobile OS raised concerns that smartphones could be used by police, civil litigants, or abusive spouses to track an owner's movements over extended periods of time.
