Internet is very slow

Suddenly your internet has become slow. This could be true in case of Windows based computer as well as Mac or Linux based computers. It is primarily due to your browser's capacity. When there is a lot of data to store the browser performs significantly badly.

  2. From the Time range to clear: drop-down menu, select the desired range; to clear your entire cache, select Everything.
  3. Click the down arrow next to "Details" to choose what history elements to clear (e.g., check Cookies to clear cookies). Click Clear Now.

From the Tools menu, select Clear Private Data... , and then check Cache and Cookies. Click Clear Private Data Now.

  2. From the menu, only select Empty the cache and Remove all cookies, then press Reset.

How to unlock your Cellphone for Free

What are Unlocked Cellphones? and Why anybody would want to Unlock it?
An Unlocked Cellphone is one that can be used on all networks operating on the frequency the phone is designed for. For example, in the UK there are four main networks, Vodafone, BT Cellnet, Orange and One2One. Vodafone and BT Cellnet operate on GSM900, while Orange and One2One operate on GSM1800. A UK dual band phone can operate on GSM900 and GSM1800, therefore being capable of working on all the networks.

However, as the networks don’t want to lose you as a customer, when they supply the phone (on contract or pay as you go) it can be locked to only accept SIM cards from their network.
If you wish to use a SIM from a different network, the phone needs to be unlocked.

How do I know if my phone is locked or unlocked?
There are two ways to check if your phone is locked/unlocked. Firstly, if you have a working SIM from a different network, try putting that into the phone and switching it on. If the phone works and you can make calls on that network, congratulations, your phone is already unlocked. If a message appears, saying “SIM card not accepted” or similar, the phone is probably locked.

How to Unlock your Cellphone?

It is very simple procedure.
  1. Download & Install ” Unlock Code Calculator
  2. Start the software and Select your Cellphone Manufacturer and Cellphone Model
  3. Enter the 15 Digit IMEI Number of your Cellphone. You can get IMEI number for your Cellphone by entering *#06# in your Cellphone and press Enter.

  5. Press Calculate and it will generate a Code similar to #pw+CODE+n#.
