| Q: Can I change antenna
to another on my mobile phone? There's so many fancy ones, short or long and
blinking ones, too.
A: Antennas are delicate parts of the
phones. I could consider changing it if I had a replacement antenna that I
could feel sure that it had been design in harmony with the rest of the delicate
electronics. I would choose an original or one from a well known company
for example Swedish Allgon.
Q: Are "pirated" batteries always of
lower quality than originals?
A: Not neccesarily. When you are buying
a battery, it's very hard to tell the diffrence in quality. In a battery of
high quality you will not only find the cells but some sort of fuse, too,
for overload or heat protection. But since the batteries are all sealed you
can't very well examine this. The best advice is to buy known brands, wether
it's original or not.
Q: How can a new battery be priced
495SEK when a new complete phone only costs 99SEK sometimes?
A: It has to do with the fact that
the real price of phone is not 99SEK but maybe 2499SEK. The customer pays
99SEK and the rest of the money comes from the net operators or service
providers. They pay to make the customers sign a 12, 18 or even 24 month
contract. The 99SEK that the customers are paying is more of down payment
than the price of the phone..
Q: Can I connect my laptop computer
to my GSM phone?
A: Some phones are already prepared
with this function. You'll have to have some sort of interface card for the
computer to let tou connect it to your GSM phone. These interface card are
ofte incorrectly refered to as modems, as they have the same function as a
modem. There are also phones with an infrared link. Some others do the trick
with only a cable and software.
Q: Could the plastic in my phone bags
windows have ruined the display of my phone?
A: Sure, some types of plastic don't
go together well. Are there also seams, they could make it even worse. If
you buy a phone worth appr 4000SEK (without subcidies) you could buy a better
bag than a 79SEK one!
