    How to Cancel Facebook SMS Subscription

    STC Facebook SMS

    Facebook has a great notification system that send you Email and SMS notifications when your friends post any updates on the Facebook. However sometime these notification might annoy you because they could be up to 50/day when you have a bunch of friends on Facebook. It is easy to stop these notifications whether they are Email notifications or SMS notifications from your Facebook account setting. It is explained well here.

    However when it comes to SMS notifications charged by Mobile Network Providers its not that simple. I have experienced it. I subscribed to Facebook SMS notifications on my STC prepaid Sim and after I find a lot of SMS in my mobile I turned it off from Facebook Account setting.

    Then I got satisfied that now I will not be disturbed by these boring messages. But it was surprising for me when STC deducted 3 Saudi Riyal from my mobile balance next week.
    You are still registered to STC Facebook sms service.

    Here are the HTC Prices for the Month of September, 2011. These prices has been collected manually and from Internet too and the least prices were picked up amongest all Suppliers like Nasa Smart Devices, Jarir Book Store, Hyper Panda, Extra Stores and Haddad Telecom.

    I have also checked the prices from Mobile Network operators like STC, Mobily and Zain but no extra ordinary promotions are available currently.

    • STC is not offering any HTC device as we can see at STC website in Jawal Devices section. However in one of the banner they used to show HTC HD7.
    • Mobily is offering HTC ChaCha but they didn't write the price online.
    • Zain Saudi Arabia only offers Nokia devices and BlackBerry device at their website, They didn't put any information on the web page, instead they offer a PDF brochure that has all the information regarding mobile devices. You may download the PDF from this web page.

    Everyone Claims First One to Launch 4G in Saudi Arabia

    It seems quite funny when we look on to the websites of all 3 Mobile Network operators in Saudi Arabia (STC, Mobily and Zain) where they highlighted, "They are the First one to launch 4G (4th Generation) Network in Saudi Arabia. I don't know who we should believe now. You can see a snapshot of the banners placed on the websites of the Mobile Network Operators in Saudi Arabia.

    However upon further investigation I found that it is STC who is basically behind all this. They have started testing this in beginning of 2010 and keep on testing it and after successfully completing this they have launched it.

    Apple iPad 2 Prices and Availability in Saudi Arabia

    Apple iPad 2 is available in a Wifi only model and Wifi+3G model that is obviously more expensive than the wifi only model. It is about 607 grams in weight in all 3 Storage sizes (16GB, 32GB, 64). The funny thing about this is 64 GB can hold more than 3 times more photos and videos than 16GB but still both of them would have same weight. :-)

    iPad 2 has a 9.7 inch TFT screen that is quite good for playing games, watching movies or reading newspapers and article online.

    iPad 2 has a lack in camera features. It has 2 cameras but both of them are not quite useful for taking photographs because the rear cam is only 0.7 MP. iPad 2 comes with iOS 4 a lates operating system from Apple. It has 1GHz dual-core processor which is good enough for playing games and performing heavy tasks like online video calling, ediiting photos etc. The most exciting thing about iPad 2 is its battery that runs up to 10 hours. It has 720 hours of stand-by time too. Currently it is available in Saudi Arabia, starting from 2800 Saudi Riyal to 3700 Saudi Riyal.

    HTC ChaCha Arabic Keyboard in High Resolution

    Few days ago I got to design a flyer for latest HTC's smartphone HTC ChaCha. Actually it was for Middle Eastern community who read and understand Arabic language. For the sake of a printed flyer I got to prepare HTC ChaCha Arabic keyboard in High resolution. I tried to look for it on Photo banks and free photo sharing sites but it seems to me that only I am the one who require it, No body else needed it ever. After not finding it online, I took few pictures of HTC ChaCha Arabic keyboard as it was made available to me that time and then imported that photos in Photoshop but the idea didn't work because those photos were very poor quality and cannot be used in a Print ad.

    So finally I created the Arabic Keyboard for ChaCha in Adobe Photoshop in high resolution specially for the advertisement. Now the flyer which I designed is printed.So I thought I should share the High resolution Arabic keyboard with other people too, so that people can utilize it in their designs if they need it.

    I made it available at Vecteezy.com for free. Anyone can download it from the link below. Don't forget to rate it and provide your feed back. Thanks
