  1. There are plenty of reasons for making you stay private while calling someone. Whatever a trigger is, this article will teach you how to hide number on your phone. No one will recognize you as the caller using the guide below. It is possible for all networks in Nigeria. Keep reading. HOW TO HIDE NUMBER ON GLO Is there a need for you to become incognito? If yes, all you have to do is to add the combination of #31# before a dialed phone number. This option is named <caller ID hiding>. A person you are calling to gets the incoming call, but the number is not shown on the screen. HOW TO HIDE NUMBER ON AIRTEL Again, put #31# before any number if you wish not to reveal your personality until the receiver picks up. In reality, it will look like that #31#08022222222. The combination is 100% true, and no one will see your number once you have placed the combination mentioned above. HOW TO HIDE NUMBER ON MTN People using MTN should insert the code to hide number, #31# is enough to make a private call. There is another variant for incognito calls though it is not available for everyone. It depends on the type of phone and network you are using. Try it out if you like. So, go to <Settings>. Done? Then, click on <Call Settings>. There you will see <Show My Caller ID>. Tick it, and here you have your phone number hidden. If this variant is more comfortable to use, you are welcome to. HOW TO HIDE NUMBER ON ETISALAT (9MOBILE) It is guaranteed that Etisalat (9mobile) users will not reveal their identity using #31#. Pay attention to the fact that it concerns local calls only. International ones are not likely to be hidden due to security issues abroad. Try out the second variant <Settings-Show My Caller ID> calling within the country as well. Mind the useful tip. Don’t forget to tick off <Show ID> when you need not hide your number anymore. It often leads to confusing situations when a caller forgets to turn off the function. Your friends and colleagues might not answer seeing a secret number on their screens. Be careful while using the second option to become the incognito caller.

  5. Chinese doctors successfully removed a 3.28ft long phone cable from a pensioner using laser technology in northeast China. The man said to be in his 60s, thought of inserting a cable to stop itchiness in the urethra that caused by prostatitis, an inflammation of the prostate. However, the cable tied a knot in the bladder and caused bleeding when the man tried to pull it out himself. According to Kankan News, the unnamed pensioner inserted a one-metre-long (3.28ft) phone charging cable into his Pen!s to relieve the itchiness caused by the inflammation. He rushed to Dalian Hospital on March 30 and sought for medical help. Dr Gao Zhanfeng, a urologist at the hospital noticed the cable, measured five millimetres (0.2inches) wide, had tied a knot inside the man’s bladder under a scan. ‘The knot gets tighter when the patient tried to pull it out. This causes bleeding in the bladder,’ said Dr Gao. The reporter asked the man: ‘Did you sterilise the cable before putting it in?’ ‘I just roughly washed it under running water,’ he answered. Dr Gao decided to user lasers to cut the knots inside and pulled the cable out by sections. He said the patient was lucky for not inserting any metal or hard materials, otherwise, the bladder could be impaled by the sharp objects. The pensioner said he took the incident as a lesson and would not do it again.

  7. Thieves love smartphones (especially expensive models). What should you do if you suddenly notice your phone is lost or stolen? How to block a stolen phone in Nigeria? Is it something simple or hard to do? Is it possible to perform the task without IMEI and by using IMEI code? Find all the answers in our post below. Every day someone loses his or her phone. This happens all across the world, including Nigeria and other African countries. Some people are able to track their stolen device. Others forget about such options and simply decide to purchase a different device instead. However, if this is a valuable gadget and it contains important data (impressive memories, imagines, contact list), do not let thieves get their hands on it. Simply block the device (distantly) and protect yourself. We are about to tell you how you can block your phone in case it is stolen or lost. HOW TO BLOCK A STOLEN PHONE USING IMEI NUMBER Firstly, you need to understand what IMEI is. We will be quick to explain this. IMEI are the four letters that stay for the unique identifier of the mobile device. Every phone has its IMEI code. It has nothing to do with your SIM card because IMEI is also with the phone even if a thieve takes the SIM out or replaces it with his own card. Everyone can see their IMEI by calling a short number *#06# – the number (sometimes two numbers) will be displayed right on your screen. You would say, ‘How to block my stolen phone if I cannot use it to find the IMEI number?’ There is no need to write it down or remember. Your identifier is written on the original gadget’s box – so keep the boxes for all new phones you purchase, just in case. Once again, do not worry if you have no phone and no box because below we will tell you how to block a phone without IMEI. By the way, it is usually completely free for the device owner to request its remote blocking. HERE IS HOW YOU CAN BLOCK YOUR PHONE WITH IMEI: As soon as you notice that you have no phone anymore, you need to visit your closest police office in Nigeria and file a report about missing or lost mobile device. Let the police know your IMEI number so that they can try to track and locate it for you. Sometimes, however, it is impossible to trace lost and stolen gadgets. If tracking and location of a phone are impossible even with the help of police, you should call your mobile operator customer service and tell them your phone is lost or stolen and needs to be blocked by IMEI code. Your carrier will ask for a copy of a police report and your information. Provide the documents and your gadget will be distantly blocked by your operator. Each blocked gadget cannot be used on a different network since carriers share a database of blocked devices. Besides, whoever finds or has your lost device won’t be able to access your financial details and personal information. HOW TO BLOCK A STOLEN PHONE WITHOUT IMEI NUMBER Now let us say your phone is stolen or lost but you don’t know its IMEI number and don’t have that box your phone came in. How is it possible to block such a device in Nigeria? METHOD 1 Contact the carrier whose SIM you have inserted into your phone. They will not be able to block your device, but they can at least block your SIM card. This way you will not be suddenly surprised by a huge bill made by a person who has found and kept using your device (making phone calls, sending text messages, and surfing the web). METHOD 2 If you own any authorized phone from a Nigerian mobile network, you can easily ask the mobile operator to block your device even without telling them your IMEI number. How is it possible? Mobile networks can access the ‘call list’ of their clients with authorized gadgets purchased from this network. If this is your case, the company has to confirm your identity (make sure that you are the original device owner) and then it can block your gadget. All you have to do is make a request through customer support and identify yourself. Phone block process usually takes up to 48 hours. Such blocked gadget won’t be accessible through any other mobile network, so whoever has your device won’t be able to make calls and use the mobile network. By the way, authorized phone users who have a legit insurance on their device can request a device replacement. It would cost you some money, but you will end up with a new replacement of the phone. You see that there is a solution if you notice that your phone is no longer with you. We explained how to block a stolen phone in Nigeria, so follow the methods above and you will protect your personal information from being used by third-party persons. Source: Naija.ng
