Can't bring Samsung Galaxy SGS3 into SAF camp

Remember that news where you can start bringing camera phones into saf camps?

I got news from the fine print for you. You can’t bring your SGS3, or your Samsung Note into camp. And definitely not your nexus 7.

I know the rule of less than 4.3 inch is an old rule, but they really need to review the regulations in totality.

Now instead of buying a extra non-camera phone, you’ll have to buy an extra camera/but small size phone for use in saf camps. Isn’t the end result the same. People just want to be able to use the latest model of phones.

A better approach is developing software that would disable your camera the moment you enter saf camps. This can be done by GPS/ Mobile triangulation, or even NFC technology. I know there are companies doing it. Here is one example.

How to terminate your starhub digital voice line

If you didn’t know, it’s going to cost money for the digital voice line that you’ve been getting free as part of the Starhub Hubbing pack. Although Starhub is still advertising the Starhub Hubbing pack as inclusive of a free digital voice line, the small print says the following:

Valid till 31 August 2012. A promotional rate of $2.10 per month applies thereafter.

Which means that you will have to start paying $2.10 on top of your hubbing pack if you would still like to enjoy your digital voice line. However with VOIP and our mobile lines, few might see the value of paying for an additional digital voice line.

To cancel your digital voice line, visit this link and fill up the digital home line termination form. Starhub will be sending mailers to all their customers to inform of this upcoming change.

Of course, if you have signed up as part of a promotional package, then you should be fine. Do take note of extra charges once your contract expires though.

Huawei Honor Non Camera for $398 (Brand New)

Update: Apologies. We were not able to accomplish the deal as the Telco has withheld the distribution of stocks to their resellers. We will continue to be on the look out for better deals in the meantime.

For those interested in getting the Huawei Honor Non Camera, do drop me an email. If there is sufficient interest (high chance as of now), I would be able to get it at $398 each for all of us. Included with the purchase would be an OEM certificate certifying that the camera has been removed (similar to what you get when you purchase the phone from starhub or m1), as well as a invoice from an official Singapore telco retailer.

Check out this review if you need to know more. Hopefully we’ll be able to install Android Jelly bean onto the phone. Otherwise, there is still ICS.
