The importance of SIM card lock

Do you use Two Factor Authentication with your mobile phone? Do you use your phone as a password recovery option? In case if you are wondering what the hell is two factor authentication, let me simplify it like this. Have you coupled your Gmail/ Facebook/ etc. account with your mobile phone in a way that you receive a ‘code’ that you should enter in the web browser? If so, read on this short note.

What now, Mobitel?

Recently I wrote about Mobitel LiveScreen because I was unhappy about the experience.

As soon I published that on my Facebook page (850+ likes), it instantly took vast public attention. So far it reached 13,000+ people without targeted advertising. Given my page’s member base is small, the post made a significant reach. Unless advertised none of my other blog posts ever reached more than 500 people on average.

Facebook, Dialog and Mobitel

I guess there would be a reasonable increase of Dialog and Mobitel telephone subscribers in Sri Lanka during next few months because of their allience with Facebook Mobile.

According to the current Alexa Ranking (Sri Lanka), Facebook is the fourth of the list (Google.lk, Yahoo.com, Google.com and then Facebook.com). Which means lot of people use it and eventually, lot of people find it efficient using the Facebook Mobile service. But, currently in Sri Lanka, this service is supported by Dialog and Mobitel only.

Even I am a subscriber of Tigo, now I’m also considering getting either Dialog or Mobitel.
