I was experiencing issues with the Internet today
and restarted my device thinking is me. Strangely some devices were not affected which made it even more annoying :)

Can anyone tell me how to put the volume down to silent or vibrate "from the lock screen" without unlocking the phone? (Samsung)

I could normally press the power button to get the screen on or double tap the screen to get the screen on and simply lower the volume before going into the mosque, meeting, sleep or any other reason.

Previously, I remember something similar with Samsung where the volume could be put to vibrate by pressing the button down all the way, and then pressing it once more would silence it.


Under normal circumstances I've always been able to do it from every phone I've ever had.

Nothing will ever beat the HTC phones I've had and still have, but since Google bought their mobile tech, it's never been the same. HTC have stopped making the best phones in the world :(

Anyone still using the old 3g phones?

I've still got a couple of brand new handsets for emergency. Also useful for alarms :)

WhatsApp blocks two million Indian accounts

16 July 2021

India has 400 million WhatsApp users, making the country its biggest market.

WhatsApp has said it blocked over two million accounts in India in May and June for violating rules.

The service said 95% of these users were blocked for violating the limits of the number of times messages can be forwarded in India.

The submissions were made by WhatsApp in its first monthly compliance report under India's controversial new IT rules.

India is WhatsApp's largest market with about 400 million users.

The Facebook-owned messaging service said its "top focus" has been to prevent accounts in India from sending harmful or unwanted messages at scale.

Using advanced machine learning technology, WhatsApp reportedly bans close to eight million accounts across the world every month.

Two million accounts in India sending a "high and abnormal rate of messages" were banned in India alone between 15 May and 15 June, the service said.

The service identifies an Indian account as one with a +91 (country code) phone number.

The Facebook-owned app often ends up being the focus of discussions on the spread of misinformation and fake news in India.

Such fake news and hoaxes are forwarded to tens of thousands of users in hours, and it's practically impossible to counter them.

Messages and videos circulating in bulk have in the past incited mob violence in India, even leading to deaths.

In addition to responding to user complaints, WhatsApp said it deployed its own tools to prevent abuse on the platform.

It said it relied on the "behavioural signals" from user accounts, or on available "unencrypted information", profile and group photos, and descriptions to identify potential offenders.

WhatsApp's submissions come at a time when tech companies are embroiled in an intensifying battle with the Indian government over the new IT rules.

The guidelines - announced in February and became effective in May - seek to regulate content on social media and streaming platforms, and have raised serious concerns about free speech and user privacy.

Critics say they give the government and law enforcement agencies powers to take down a wide range of content on the internet. But the government claims the rules are meant to prevent abuse and misinformation.

Violence, deaths etc is of no concern because it helps the wrong people.

It's when reality and the truth starts coming out when action is taken!

The algorithms work on its agenda!

Related to gadgets, but a little off topic...

Does anyone know what do to when a mobile phone screw head gets stripped? How does one go about getting the screw out if the screwdriver bit keeps slipping off the screw head?

The screws are too small to use specially designed tools to creat a new head shape.

You can try using an elastic-band over the head of the screw and then place the screwdriver over the elastic band, or use a slightly bigger head.
