For those of you with a heavy foot this is for you. Trapster allows it's user in real time to mark the location of police speed traps, camera lights and such. All this is accomplished by the GPS on your mobile phone (If you have GPS). Just go to the website and sign up. Then download the "free" program to your mobile phone. When you have Trapster activated it will give you audio alerts when you are approaching an area that has been report as a speed trap. On the website you can mark known areas, vote on the credibility of speed traps, and remark or change traps that you have submitted. So the more users that are on the system the better. I think it is definitely worth a try.

Slydial is a new service that is currently in the alpha test phase. Slydial will connect you directly to anyone's mobile voice mail when you call 267-SLYDIAL (759-3425) without ringing the phone. The service is free, but supported by advertising. Before they connect your phone call, you will hear about a five second ad. It wasn't bad, and if you just want to leave a message and not talk to the person it's worth. The 267 area code is located in Pennsylvania.

I'm sure this will take the dating game to a whole new level. "I'm sorry baby I called you, but it just went to voice mail." Give it a try and let me know what you think.

DDN Mobile

First off a big thanks to all of you that have subscribed to the blog. I appreciate it. Keep passing it along. DDN Mobile is something I've been using a while. It's not free unfortunately, but it's only 2 bucks a month. For that 2 dollars you can make all the ring tones you want from the music you already own. Just upload your song and crop the exact part you like. I don't know about other carriers, but Sprint at least charges a $1.99 per ring-tone, and from my experience it's not always the part of the song I want. So for the ability to make unlimited ring-tones I think it's a pretty good deal.

After completing the song you have the option to go directly to the site and get the song from the download queue (for all you mobile internet users) or you can have it send a direct link to your phone via text message and download it that way. Other options include changing the bit rate of the song, increasing the volume and choosing between CD and Radio quality. Be carefully with adjusting the volume, you could bust your speakers if you made it to loud. A 10% change should be sufficient for a little extra sound. Which is what i do.

The next cool part is, if others have decide to share there ring-tones you can download them. Less work for you. Just search for what your looking for. You can also find games, wallpapers, and applications as well (if they are compatible with your phone). Also if you don't see your phone don't worry, just find one that's close to yours and it should work just fine. That's what I had to do with my Samsung MM A900, but now I own the HTC Mogul. As always I hope you enjoy this and find it useful.
