Globe Powersurf's volume base (per MB) charging now official for prepaid, with more options

By // No comments:

I posted a short test before "Globe Powersurf bucket charging (per MB or data usage) now available for prepaid , how to register" and now, its official, from Globe. Aside from the the usual Powersurf15,30 and 50, they've also added the Powersurf99, 299 and 499 (all 30 days unlimited internet) previously only available for Postpaid subscribers.

Sadly, this is just a promo. Until Dec. 31, 2011 only.

Initially, bucket charging or per data usage  via Globe Powersurf is only available for Postpaid subscribers
I’ve been using Powersurf (ranging from 15/30/50) for my mobile internet needs as its more flexible than the regular P5 / 15mins charging when you are not registered to any data promos. Today is different though because after registering for powersurf 15, I receive the message displayed on the side
To continue your registration to POWERSURF<15/30/50>, text TIME <15/30/50) to 8888for <1/3/5> hours of mobile internet consumed per minuted OR text MB<15/30/50> to 8888 for <20/50/100>MB of mobile internet consumed per KB. Valid for <1/1/3> days upon successful registration.

Failed attempt to jailbreak brand new iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.5 , things to consider

By // No comments:
A friend of mine asked if i can jailbreak his iPad 2 with current iOS version 4.3.5.  If you remember, i posted an article before on how to easily jailbreak an iPad 2 on iOS 4.3.3, well 4.3.5 is different and you can't use to jailbreak an iPad on this version. After several hours of trial and error, and a lot of research, i found out the following important information you should consider when you try jailbreaking your iPad

  • iOS 4.3.4 and 4.3.5 for iPad 2 has no available untethered jailbreak
  • the only way to jailbreak iPad on this iOS version is to downgrade it to 4.3.3 (then jailbreak it using this very easy process)
  • You can only downgrade to 4.3.3 from 4.3.5, if your iPad 2 has been previously jailbroken on version 4.3.3 and has saved shsh/blobs (so obviously, there's no option to jailbreak a brand new iPad that has iOS 4.3.5 already installed)
  • the downgrade to 4.3.3 option is not available for 3g/CDMA versions of iPad 2, only applicable to "wifi only" devices
  • there's no ongoing development to jailbreak iOS versions 4.3.4 and 4.3.5, so just wait for the iOS 5.0.1 jailbreak 
  • Although there are reports that some users (technical bad ass ones) was able to jailbreak their iPad 2 4.3.5

Nokia Maps v3.08 shows 3d landmarks here in Philippines

By // No comments:
SM Megamall and Shangri-la at Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila (in 3d view)

I got bored earlier that's why i started playing with my Nokia N8. I accidentally opened Nokia Drive, and noticed that there is a translucent image on my maps. I looked carefully and realized that its the 3d landmarks. I thought this would only come to major cities like the ones located on Europe and US.
Manuel L. Quezon Monument, Quezon City, Metro Manila Another reason to love navigation with nokia devices.

Hihey Mobile not doing well lately, help me share posts again

By // No comments:
As you can see from the graph above, I started this blog on the last day of Jan 2011 and it grew very fast  peaking on July 2011. It took a slight downturn during July - Sept because I became busy with my love life (yes i had one), but it was shortlived and didn't ended happily so I got back on track with blogging, getting a positive turn again by Oct 2011. But I became busy again with another stuff (online gaming) paving way for another downturn again for Hihey Mobile.

But what really made this blog took a sharp hit in pageviews is what i did on Nov 2. I changed the design BIG TIME. I wanted to give the blog a refreshed look, i was happy with new design, people loved the design , but the web  statistics says the internet did not like it :(

In just 1 day half of the visitors are gone. So I brought back the website to its original design, i cant afford to lose readers now. I want to get back to blogging again, but i also want a new sleeker look for the site. Maybe i'll just do that when i decided to change the domain name to

These are some of the tips of Mark from Techpinas when we met, and now i realize how true they are :
1. Keep on posting interesting stuff
2. Search engines hates changes in website designs

Expect to for exciting posts from now on. I'm thinking of buying a Nokia Lumia from UK to become first of the reviewers of that phone here in the Philippines. Let's see what happens.
