geeteam posted a topic in Mobile NewsJust two days ago Microsoft announced a new trade-in deal for the US and Canada, which can give you up to $250 of store credit if you give up on your old smartphone or tablet. Today Microsoft has extended this deal with a special offer. If you opt to return your old Apple iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy S II, you can have a Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 for free. Your old phone just needs to be working, with no missing parts or pieces. The deal expires on March 2, or until supplies last. he catch is that you'll have to sign a two-year contract with AT&T, to get the free Lumia unit. Lumia 1520 otherwise costs $200 on contract, while the Lumia 1020 has already dropped down to just $100 on a contract. Anyway, if you want to trade in your old gadget for a new Windows-based one, feel free to explore all deals throughout the US and Canada before making a decision. Source
geeteam posted a topic in Mobile NewsMany times we install lots of applications or games in our mobile phone and the phone becomes not responding or very slow due to some faulty apps or other obvious reasons. Sometimes we try hidden secret codes or PC software to play with our mobile phone functionality or to update its firmware with a new 3rd party unofficial firmware available on Internet which breaks our phone and makes it not bootable. In such cases we have no option left except taking our phone to the service center and ask the mechanics to repair our phone. If the phone is out of warranty, we may also spend some money for the repair. Wouldn't it be great if we could repair our mobile phone at home by reinstalling the firmware? Now its possible as Nokia has released an official software recovery tool for Nokia Windows 8 mobile phones. "Nokia Software Recovery Tool" is a free software released by Nokia which allows you to recover or restore your Nokia Lumia mobile phone software. It might become very useful if you want to reinstall software in your Nokia mobile phone. According to Nokia, this software can recover your mobile phone if you are having software or software update related issues. You can recover your phone even if its not responding, stuck or not starting at all. This free tool can be installed in Windows 7 and later operating systems. The software first detects your mobile phone model and then downloads the required firmware files which might take lots of time depending upon the size of firmware files. You just need to connect your mobile phone to your PC using USB cable and then run the software and follow the steps. If the phone is in working condition, don't forget to take a backup of your personal data as all data will be deleted during software installation. -|Download Link|-Nokia Software Recovery Tool Source
