iPhone making random calls in the background


Was encountering a wired problem with my iPhone for last two days. iPhone kept dialling random numbers in the background. It’s makes 400-500 Calls a day!!!

Today went to Apple store for help and they said they haven’t encountered such a problem. Also their diagnosis said everything was perfect.

I was suspecting my just updated iOS 11. But, Found that was also not the problem.

Finally, posted in FB get some solution from friends who would have experienced same problem and it worked in minutes.

See if anyone is sharing your iCloud account? This happened to wife’s phone, as her mom was using same iCloud account. Whenever her mom calls, they used to appear on my wife’s phone.

Only then I realised, giving my old iPhone 5C to my HR team, I totally forgot to reset the password.

So, this is a problem which happens when we share iCloud in multiple phones.

As always the power of social media helped.

My New Tripod for SmartPhones


20140204-100341.jpg

Got this new Toy from Amazon & it has it’s own utility…

From now we can Video Shoot all our business meetings… Since we mostly do it in hotels & coffee shops, this toy can be kept on the table and get the work done…

Our (Swami & me) desire to do something using Vine can be started… Yes from now you can expect a lot of 6 sec videos from us…

Can’t resist to goto Madurai and explore things with Swami…

Dropped my mobile :(((


Was attending a phone call while walking my way home… After finishing the call my iPhone slipped from my hand :(… Yep I’m known for my sloppy hand and a lot of times I’ve been a victim of that;

  • Dropped my Nokia 6600 a 100 times… But I always admired Nokia for their rugged mobile which
  • 2005 my Nokia communicator slipped from my hand and crashed in front of my eye…
  • 3 months back my Galexy S2 slipped from my hand and crashed
  • Today it’s the turn of my iPhone :(… Fortunately it escaped with some scratches…

From evening I’m disturbed and couldn’t bring back my mood… Still struggling to concentrating on work and working ways on how to transform. Y sloppy hands to safe hands…

Too much of Technology is Injurious to MIND


Every month I’ve to take my father to hospital for review… Normally a review takes 8 – 10 hours where in I’ve to wait for doctors, get the list of scans to be taken, make payment, take him for scan, wait for the online scan results, again wait for doctor to get his opinion, mostly a reference would be given to other doctor, wait for them, get their opinion, then settle the final bills, get the discharge report, buy medicine and get back home…

So, in-between all those hectic schedule;

  • Paid mobile bill using Vodafone APP…
  • Transferred cash to a friend using ICICI Bank APP…
  • Checked Credit Card statement using CitiBank APP…
  • Approved & replied to comments in my blog usingWordPRESS APP…
  • Went to FB to share & like interesting articles, wished birthday buddies and commented on friends articles…
  • Went to Cafe Coffee Day opened CCD APP and used the discount code…
  • Read and Replied to emails…
  • Attended phone calls… Mostly with fellow directors…
  • Read tech news thru TechCrunch APP…
  • EverNote & GDrive APPS are other daily used utility APPS…

I was always thrilled that technology made life simple and it never made be sit bored… It always kept me engaged and enjoyed my life even during crisis… But all these days I didn’t realise that I’ve been addicted or obsessed with something…

Today was the day to realise when my iPhone ran out of charge and was in no position to charge it for almost 2 hours… All of a sudden my mood changed, got irritated for unnecessary things, got restless, felt like I lost or missed something… I drive back the car like crazy to reach home… When I was caught in signal the frustration increased as I immediately clean unnecessary email during that break…

Without exaggeration I had symptoms of depression… Only then I realised how bad it is to get bossed with technology and what all things I’m missing in life… I totally lost human touch in life… Though technology has made life easier I don’t want to get addicted to it…

Immediately i wanted to do something to break this addiction in me… As a decisive person i immediately thought of an idea where I get totally disconnected with all these technology for at least 2 days (any Saturday & Sunday) in a month…

I hate postponing good things and the experiment starts immediately… Next Monday you can expect a blog on the experience of living disconnected from technology

Out of Stock


Day before Yesterday we(myself & swami) were told by one of our Sales folks that there is an offer running for iPhone 3G for Rs.9999/- from Aircel… For long we wanted to buy an iPhone to our Mobile Development Labs… There was an option online to make a booking but the catch is it will take 13 business days to get the phone… We were too impatient that we decided to goto Aircel store the next day and buy it…

Then immediately the next day after 2 – 3 hours of sleep we ventured out on the rains to the Aircel store near Little Mount, Chennai to buy our own iPhone… Upon reaching there it was we who had to tell the folks about the offer which was running… Then the Customer Support attendant made some calls and came back telling they were running out of stock and we had to wait for a week…

Since we decided to buy the phone we were disappointed and we immediately decided to buy an iPod Touch at-least… So, from Little Mount we immediately decided to goto Apple Store near Radhakrishnan Road… After getting drenched on rain and overcoming traffic jams we reached the store only to know that even iPod Touch was out of stock

Then we went to ezone which is near Mylapore and again they were running out of stock… By this time we became very desperate and we decided that we are going back to office only after buying the gadget… From there we went to Landmark in CitiCentre and again they were running out of stock

Next choice we had was to goto Chroma near Anna Salai and while coming out there was a small gadget store on the ground floor in CitiCentre and we though of giving it a shot and to our surprise he has some 10 units of iPod touch and we immediately grabbed one… After all this struggle we finally felt like winning something as we had to struggle to deserve one…

After iPad, MacBook, Android Gingerbread & Android IceCream Sandwitch we have added iPod touch which is an alternate to test iPhone apps…
