      How to Unlock a BlackBerry

      Many wireless providers across the globe, including AT&T/Cingular, T-Mobile, Vodafone, and Verizon sell Blackberries. When these companies sell a BlackBerry, they do so at a discount in order to attract customers. The providers then make up the lost profits over the lifetime of their contract with the customer. To protect those profits, the wireless providers

    • CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access)

      CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access)

      Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) is a channel transmission standard that allows several transmitters to send information simultaneously over a single communication channel. This ensures that the available bandwidth is used in an optimized manner. It is a form of multiplexing and is used for wireless communication. Radio communication makes use of two resources: frequency

    • Cell Phone Signal Boosters

      Cell Phone Signal Boosters

      Cell phone signal boosters (or cellular repeaters) are bidirectional amplifiers designed to boost the mobile phone reception using internal signal amplifiers, reception antennas and rebroadcast antennas. External antennas collect good cellular signal, and then it is transmitted to an amplifier, which retransmits the signal locally. This process results in much better signal. Rural areas often

    • IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity)

      IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity)

      IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber identity) is the information that is used for identification of a mobile phone end-user on a network  and is uniquely associated with a given cell phone The IMSI code is stored as a 64 bit number or field, and is sent by the mobile phone to the cellular network. The code

      Cell Phone Interceptors

      Millions of people use monitoring systems and devices for several purposes. Monitoring systems and devices have been around for quite some time and are designed to increase the level of security and protection in facilities. Among the technologies that the cell phone industry created, the cell phone interceptor is what experts consider one of the

      ESN (Electronic Serial Number)

      ESN (Electronic Serial Number) An Electronic Serial Number is a code created to identify mobile devices. An ESN is 32 bits long, and the distribution of information in those bits has changed as the standard has evolved. The first 8 bits originally represented the manufacturer code, leaving 24 bits for the manufacturer to assign codes
