Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Best Cell Phone Features

With the bevy of options and features now available in cellphones it's easy to find one perfect for you. Before you begin searching for your next cell phone, take the time to think about what you need your phone to do. Below, you'll learn the best cell phone features.

  1. Camera: Cell phone cameras can be quite handy when you happen upon a special moment without a regular digital camera on hand. Most camera phones don't take very high-resolution (usually 1.3 megapixel) pictures, but there are some that top out over 3 megapixels. Some cell phone cameras even have small flashes. If you want a camera phone, find out if it comes with the cable and software to connect to your computer, so you don't have to spend extra for a separate program.
  2. Video: Usually, camera phones that play video will also record video. Some non-camera cell phones also play video. Look to see if you can transfer movies from your phone to your computer.
  3. Web browsing: Many cell phones let you connect to the Internet. Most use Wireless Access Protocol (WAP), which allows the phone to connect to pages specifically designed for cell phones. There are many phones with full browsers, however, that allow you to view regular Web pages.
  4. Bluetooth: Bluetooth is a technology that allows you to transfer data wirelessly between devices. Wireless cell phone headsets use this technology, and it can also be used to transfer pictures, ringtones and other data between two cell phones or between cell phones and computers.
  5. Games: There are cell phones out there that have been designed with the gamer in mind, allowing you to download games that would compare to those found on a personal gaming system.
  6. Office software: Most cell phones feature some sort of a calendar and alarm. You can set a wake-up alarm or you can make it alert you for your next appointment. Other phones allow you to make notes for each appointment. Some let you create documents that can be transferred to your computer's word processor or spreadsheet.
  7. MP3 player: More and more cell phones are also MP3 players. Check to see if you need special headphones for listening (and if they're included), and pay attention to the phone's memory capacity.
  8. Memory expansion: Some phones, usually video or MP3 player phones, feature memory card slots, so you can save pictures, music or other files on removable flash memory.
  9. Voice dialing: If you absolutely have to use your cell phone while driving, you'll want one with voice dialing. The phone recognizes the contact you speak and places the call, allowing you to keep your eyes where they belong: on the road.

How can I reinstal Windows Search and Windows Security Centre


Install Windows Security Center


Open Internet Explorer and navigate to the Microsoft Windows Update website.


Click the "Express" button on the main page to have your computer checked for important updates to be installed.


Since Windows Security Center is not installed, it will be detected and installed within the update.


Search the list of updates that will be installed on your Computer and deselect any options besides Windows Security Center that you don't want installed at this time.


Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation process.


Set your computer up for Automatic Updates to keep your computer up to date.

You can do so by clicking "Start" followed by "Control Panel."


Click "Automatic Updates" and select the recommended option.


Click "Apply" followed by "OK" to save the changes and exit the window.


Install Windows Security Center in Windows Vista


Click the "Start" button followed by "All Programs." Scroll through the list and select "Windows Update" from the available options. You can also type "Windows Update" in the search field followed by pressing "Enter" to access it immediately.


Click the "Change Settings" button in the left window pane.


Select the radio button next to "Automatically download and install updates."


Click "OK" when you have finished. Windows will begin to scan your computer and download the necessary updates, one of which will be Windows Security Center if it isn't available on your computer already. When the updates have finished installing, a bubble will pop up in your system tray telling you new updates have installed and your computer needs to be restarted.


Restart your computer and once you log back on to Windows, Security Center will be available. You can access it by clicking the "Start" button and typing "Windows Security Center" in the search field. It will also be available in the "All Programs" software list.


Reinstall Windows Search


If for some reason you've lost Windows Search from your computer, it is possible to reinstall it.

It will allow you to sort and group results in Windows Explorer more quickly, and will improve the indexing of your online email.


It expands your system's ability to do fast remote queries of file shares, including on Windows XP and Server 2003.

It automatically indexes shared folders and contains improvements in previews for earlier supported operating systems (Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP).


When you type a search term into Windows Search, the results appear quickly.

This is also true for information from emails and their attachments.



Download and install Windows Search on your computer.
