Opera has just launched a new browser called Opera Touch. This is coming after the company discontinued its own vpn app called Opera VPN for Android and iOS.

Opera Touch is a stand-alone app which is totally different from the normal Opera browser we know. Opera Touch is available on Android and PC devices. iOS users should expect the browser soon.

Opera Touch has a simple user interface. It has a Touch button that brings quick access to the Speed Dial, bookmarks, the back button and reload/kill page buttons, and open tabs button.

With Opera Touch, you can transfer sites from your phone to PC or PC to phone only if you use same browser on both devices. You will get a prompt asking if you want to continue from computer when you open a new tab on mobile. You can still transfer sites using a feature Opera calls “Flow”.

Flow creates a feed of websites that you’ve shared from one platform to the other that you can scroll back through to find what you’re looking for.

Opera Touch features voice search function and allows users to scan a QR or barcode to perform a search. If you open Opera Touch browser, the address bar immediately opens up and is ready for you to begin typing a URL or a search query. And when you’re on a website, scrolling up will reveal a button at the bottom of the page that you can tap to access your other tabs or to open a new tab.

Opera Touch - FAB


Fast Action Button (FAB) is a button that gives you access to it all. It is located at the bottom of your browser screen; and gives you direct access to the most recent tabs and search features.

Where To Download Opera Touch Browser?


Opera Touch has been rolled out on Playstore for everyone to download. You can download it Here.

We all know 9mobile Special Data offer to be sim selective. It's very annoying to be ineligible for such a cheap data offer. Currently, 9mobile special data is one of the cheapest data plan on the network.

The plan goes for N200 for 1GB which is valid for 3 days. As you can see, it's one of the cheapest data plan at the moment. One of its disadvantages is that it is sim selective.

9mobile Special Data has been available for a year now and it's still blazing and working well. In this post, I will teach you how to make your sim eligible for this offer if you weren't eligible before now.

How To Make 9mobile Sim Eligible For Special Data Offer


The simple trick to make your 9mobile sim eligible for this offer is to subscribe to the data plan during the weekend, which is between Friday to Sunday.

How To Subscribe to 9Mobile 1GB Data for N200


Recharge your 9mobile line with N200 and dial *929*10# to activate the offer. Subscription is valid for 3 days.

To check your data balance, dial *228#.

You may be receiving error messages when trying to activate the plan, just keep dialing the code and you will surely be activated for the plan.

The trick here is that, all 9mobile sims are automatically eligible for this special data offer during the weekend. The data plan works any day and any time and on any device.

You can subscribe multiple times same day if you have exhuasted the current data plan. Meaning you can subscribe to the plan 5 times at once. This means with N1,000, you can get 5GB data.

I hope this worked for you? Please leave a comment below and share this post.

Did you know that smartphones are ‘equipped’ with secret codes that can unlock (or lock) a number of different functions which propound a service known as "Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD)" or backdoors. We mostly know this as "quick codes", secret code or "feature codes". This code is an extra UI protocol, which allows people to access hidden features.

If we come to trace the origin of this protocol, it was originally created for GSM phones which can also be found on CDMA devices in some cases.

They are accessed by inputting them into the phone's dialer (it can be found on the phone home screen which is mostly green in color) and usually begin and end with the * or # keys with a sequence of numbers in between. These are available publicly as a back channel that allows users to directly communicate with their service provider.

The most tricky part is that most people don't really need to know how their local cell towers are performing or what their IMEI number is which is not supposed to be because this are part of the hidden features you have to fish out first when you own a phone.

Today, as this topic above is concerned, we will provide you with the list of codes to fish out hidden features on your device. These codes seldom work across different carriers, OS, or phone models (or even on generations of the same model).

On a normal instance, not all these codes might work on all devices but mostly all devices so If you really want to try them out, your best bet may be to Google your phone's make and carrier "USSD" for a well comprehensive list. Though I have tried some of these codes on device like Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Galaxy S5 and even iPhone, most of these codes work perfectly well
Now, we are moving, check out these list below for codes that mostly worked on all devices.

Check Your Call Forwarding


What is Call Forwarding?  This is a feature of some telephone switching systems which redirects a telephone call to another destination, which may be, for example, a mobile telephone, voicemail box or another telephone number where the desired call party is available.

To carry out this operation, Dial *#67#. Once you enter this code above, it allows you to check which number your phone is currently forwarding calls to when you're busy or reject a call. This carries a voicemail but you can change it to forward to a different number or even third-party answering service.

If you want to do this on an iPhone, you can change this number by doing the following;
>>Go to Settings >>Click Phone >> Tap on Call Forwarding.

If you want to do this on Android also
>>Tap the Dailer app
>>Click on hamburger icon
>>Go to Settings >>Call Settings >>Select the Sim>> Call forwarding. From there you can set a call forwarding feature or disable it if activated.

Get More Information On Call Forwarding


To do this... dial *#61#
This code prompted a pop-up on Galaxy device that let you know how long until a call is forwarded to the message center.

On the iPhone, you can dial on *#67#.

Quick Test Menu


if you are using Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and you enter this code above, it brings up a menu with a number of one-tap test prompts.

NOTE: The first test is "Melody," which prompts a jaunty little K-Pop diddy.

Firmware


What is Firmware? · Firmware is software that's installed on a small memory chip on a hardware device. Firmware allows hardware to be updated.

This only work on Samsung Galaxy devices alone, to do that. dial *#1234#

It will let you know your phone's current firmware.

Field Mode


What is Field Mode? This is a software application often pre-installed on mobile phones that provides the user with technical details, statistics relating to the mobile phone network and allows the user to run hardware tests on the phone.

To check your field mode
>>Type *3001#12345#* into your phone's dialer
>>Press the green call button to access "Field Mode," which can give you access to info about local networks and cell towers.

General Test Mode


To do this, Simply Type *#0*#
I could only get this to work on Android. But this prompts a library of different phone operations, which could be operated with a single push (e.g. Sleep, Front Camera, Vibration).

Make Your IMEI Known


What is IMEI? IMEI full meaning is "International Mobile Equipment Identity" The IMEI is a number, usually unique, to identify 3GPP and iDEN mobile phones, as well as some satellite phones.

This code doesn't work with Verizon on an iPhone, but if you want to make it work, do this below
First of all switch to a T-Mobile SIM.  If you want to access it
>>Type in this code *#06#
>>Tap the "call button" to prompt your IMEI number or your International Mobile Station Equipment Identity number.

The IMEI is unique to your device. Among other things, the number can help "blacklist" stolen devices or help with customer support.

Check Your Available Minutes


This only works on postpaid plans.
To do this, simply dial *646#. This one does not work on iPhone but work on my Galaxy phone but must have an unlimited texting plan from AT&T. So, a pop-up message will show Instead of showing the info on a new screen.

Check Your Bill Balance


This doesn't work on iPhone also but work on Android, so to do that, dial *225#. You will get a message telling you about your current balance.

Hide Your Phone From Caller ID


What is Caller ID? Caller ID is also known as Caller identification which lets your friends, family and business contacts know you're calling them. When you have set up caller identification, your mobile number or Skype Number is displayed when you call mobiles and landlines from Skype.

You can hide your phone caller ID against another caller and this only work on Android.
To do this, dial #31#

Once you enter this code, you will notice a pop-up message stating that "my Caller ID had been disabled". In order to re-instate Caller ID, Just dial *31#, it will automatically reinstate the caller ID so you make use of it anytime, any day.

Check Your Billing Circle


What is Billing Cycle? The billing cycle for a credit card or any type of monthly account is the period of time between billings. For instance, a billing cycle may start on the 1st day of the month and end on the 30th day of the month. Or, it may go from the 12th of one month to the 12th of the next.

To check your billing cycle, Dial *3282#. This works on Android also, once you type the above code, It will prompt you an SMS message with my billing information.

SMS Message Center


What is SMS Message Center? it's a network element in the mobile telephone network. Its purpose is to store, forward, convert and deliver Short Message Service (SMS) messages.

For your SMS message center, Dial *5005*7672#
This code will tell you your SMS message center number.

Activate Call Waiting


Call Waiting is a service whereby someone making a telephone call is notified of an incoming call on the line that they are already using, and is able to place the first call on hold while the second is answered.

To activate call waiting, simply Dial *43#. Once you dial that code, it will activate call waiting and then you can deactivate anytime you like by dialing #43#.

That's all about that. For any opinion or suggestion, pass it across to us as soon as possible using the comment box below.

Flickr - a photo sharing and hosting platform has been officially acquired by SmugMug - another photo sharing and hosting platform. This agreement was concluded few days ago and all access has been given to Oath Inc by SmugMug.

SmugMug might sound new to many of us here but the truth is, SmugMug is not a new site. As a matter of fact, they started as early in 2002 while Flickr started 2 years after in 2004.

SmugMug is a premium site. They don't offer free services. All their plans are subscription-based, offering paid plans for individuals and businesses. But Flickr's popular ad-supported service will remain intact.

In an interview with SmugMug CEO - Don MacAskill, he said "I don’t know what the future holds. This is a new model for me,”. He plans to maintain Flickr as its own standalone platform, and even hopes to bring something out of it.

This is what Flickr CEO has to say;
SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. With SmugMug, we’ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.

We are yet to know the worth of this deal as financial details hasn't been disclosed yet.

Few months ago, Opera discontinued its Opera Max VPN which has now been taken over by Samsung. The new name is now called Samsung Max VPN.

It's quite sad that Opera is taking down its own vpn app - Opera VPN. This vpn was officially launched in May 2016 for both Android and iOS devices and was made free for all.

Opera VPN was one of the best free vpn app out there. It has different servers to choose from, including USA, Canada, Germany, Singapore, and Netherlands. The vpn is totally free.

This sad announcement was made by the company on their site. Read below;
We’re discontinuing the Opera VPN app for iOS and Android on April 30, 2018. But don’t worry. We’re helping to make sure your privacy is still looked after.

Opera Gold subscribers are being given a free 1year subscription to SurfEasy Ultra VPN, worth $77.88. It will interest you to know that SurfEasy is owned by Opera Software.

Those who used the free version of Opera VPN are being offered an 80% discount off SurfEasy Total VPN, which is normally $4.99 a month or $47.88 a year.

Reasons For Shutting Down Opera VPN


Actually, the company didn't give any reason for the indefinite closure. Like what Opera stated when shutting down Opera Max VPN, they said the VPN is a non-profit service. They don't earn anything from it, so they will be focusing more on their web browser.

The same thing has just happened to Opera VPN. Seriously, if it ain't making money, then it ain't making sense. It costs a lot to run a VPN service. All the internet traffic of every user has to run through the servers of the company maintaining it.

Opera Software probably just found it too expensive to offer this service for free.
