Beware! Virus hits mobile phones

December 10, 2004 16:18 IST

If your cellphone bill exceeds your wildest dreams next time, beware!

Your handset is being hacked into by a deadly virus, that is capable of controlling your cellphone and even destroying the data stored in the mobiles, a top official of a leading anti-virus and Internet content security firm warned on Friday.

"The virus threat to mobile phones are real and could be more deadly than you could imagine," Niraj Kaushik, country manager (India) of Nasdaq-listed Trend Micro Inc, which just released a free trial of new protection for mobile devices, 'malware' (malicious software) that attack mobile phones, said in Chennai.

Considering that the mobile phones are always "switched on and networked", the chances of virus attacks are much more than on computers, he said.

Due to the rising popularity of data-centric mobile phones and personal digital assistants, these devices could become an attractive target for virus writers in the future, Kaushik warned.

Already, three malware programmes that affect mobile phones were detected during November, but these were considered harmless.

However, a fourth virus, which was detected in December first week, was found to be very destructive. "This virus allowed hackers to control your cellphone," Kaushik said.

All the virus attacks were witnessed on multi-functional smart phones, that have latest features like Internet connectivity and in-built cameras.

The MSN Hotmail for SMS service allows you to access your MSN Hotmail e-mail features via your mobile phone - at any time, from any where using any mobile phone that supports the SMS technology.

You can read, reply, delete, forward, and write e-mail from your mobile phone via MSN Hotmail just like from your PC. These classic e-mail features are carried out via a set of commands explained later. When you enter a command on your mobile phone, the appropriate e-mail action is initiated.


How to use MSN Hotmail for SMS?
With Hotmail for SMS, you can do all the following by sending SMS messages from your mobile phone:

  • Check what new email has arrived in your Hotmail inbox on your mobile
  • Read all your emails
  • Reply to emails in your inbox
  • Forward emails in your inbox to one or more email addresses
  • Navigating through your emails
  • Compose and send emails to one or more email addresses
  • Delete old, unwanted emails

How much does it Cost?
You will be charged for each message you send from your mobile handset using Mobile Messaging.

Using Commands
Find out how to use SMS text Commands €" the key to your MSN Mobile service. By using a specific SMS text Command for each action, you can send, receive, forward, reply and delete emails via SMS text.

Manage your Accounts & Settings
You can adjust your account and settings to suit you at anytime. Easy-to-use Hotmail filters mean that you only receive the emails that matter to you. Turn alerts on and off or delete your account completely. Manage your
account here.

Hotmail Tips
A Quick-Name is an alias you can give to an e-mail address in the Hotmail Contact Address book. If you use an e-mail address regularly, go to Hotmail, add the e-mail address to your Personal Contacts and then give them a short alias. This will make composing e-mails from the handset faster.

Hotmail FAQ's
Find out the answers to your questions about the Mobile Hotmail
service here.

NOTE : Actions carried out with the MSN Hotmail SMS Service on your mobile phone will be reflected in your MSN Hotmail inbox - you have only one inbox. The e-mails in your inbox, whether you see them on your phone or on your PC, come from the same Hotmail account. So if you delete an email when viewing your Hotmail account on your mobile phone, the next time you will log on to your inbox on your PC, the deleted mail will not appear - and vice versa.

Nokia Codes Tips and Tricks 


To check the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) Type-


Information you get from the IMEI-


TAC      FAC   & ; ;nbs p; SNR      SP


TAC = Type approval code

FAC = Final assembly code

SNR = Serial number

SP    = Spare

To check the phones Software revision type-


Information you get from the Software revision-

V 05.31



1ST Line  = Software revision

2ND Line = The date of the software release

3RD Line = Phone type

To enter the service menu type-

*#92702689# (*#WAR0ANTY#)

Serial number (IMEI)

Production date (MM/YY)

Purchase date (MM/YY) You can only enter the date once.

Date of last repair (0000=No repair)

Transfer user data to another Nokia phone via Infra-Red

Clock Stopping

To check weather your SIM Card supports clock stopping type-

*#746025625# (*#SIM0CLOCK#)

Revealing the Headphone and Car-Kit menus

Please note that if you do these next tricks, the new menus can't be erased without retoring the factory default settings. To do these tricks you need to short-circuit the pins on the bottom of the phone next to where you plug in you charger.


To activate the "Headset" menu, you need to short-circuit pins "3" and "4". After a short time the word "Headset" will be shown in the display. Menu 3-6 is now enabled.

To activate the "Car" menu, you need to short-circuit pins "4" and "5". After a short time the word "Car" will be shown in the display. Menu 3-7 is now enabled.



This should work on all software versions of the 6110.

Go to the Calendar (Menu-8)

Make a note or reminder.

Enter some text into the edit box.

Hold "Clear" until the whole text is cleared, then press "Back".

Press "0". The main screen will now be showing but a space appears on the screen. (you can't see it)

Enter 4 digits (e.g. 1234).

Use the down arrow to move the cursor to the left side of the numbers and the space (Down arrow twice).

Now enter 6 digits and press the call button.

Wait for a few seconds, the screen should start to flash and reboots. It should alsowork on other menus like the "Profiles" menu.



To activate EFR (Enhanced Full Rate) Enter the code-


This improves call quality but decreases batterylife by about 5%

To deactivate it, Enter the code-




If you short-circuit theleft middle and right pins on the bottom of the phone with all connections touching each other, the Nokia software hangs! The profile "Headset" will be activated. Before you do this just activate the "Automatic Answer" in the headset profile and set the ringing volume to "Mute". Now you can use your phone for checking out what people are talking about in a room. Just place it under a table in a room and call it. The phone receives the call without ringing and you can listen to what people are saying.



There is a hidden menu inside your Nokia phone. If you want to activate it, you'll have to re-program some chips inside of your phone.

Check your software version. You can only continue if you have v4.33, v4.73 or v5.24.

Take apart the phone.

De-solder the EEPROM (ATMEL AT 24C64).

Read out the data with an EEPROM programmer and save it to a file (Backup).

If you have v.33 or v4.73, change the address "03B8" from "00" to "FF".

If you have v5.24 then change the address "0378" from "00" to "FF".

Write the new data to the EEPROM and solder it back to the phone,

Power on your phone and you should have "Netmonitor" enabled.

The Network Monitor gives you the following information.


Carrier number

MS RX Level in DBM

Received signal quality

MS TX power level

C1 (Path loss criterion, used for cell selection and reselection). The range is -99 to 99.

RTL (Radio link timeout).


Indication of the transmitter status

Information on the Network parameters.

TMSI (Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity).

Cell identification (Cell ID, Number of cells being used).

MCC (Mobile country code)

MCN (Mobile network code)

LAC (Location area code)

Ciphering (On/Off)

Hopping (On/Off)

DTX (On/Off)

Discard cell barred information



Note - If you bought your Nokia on UK Vodafone or UK Cellnet you do not need to check this because they both transmit on GSM900, and they don't lock the phones. However if you bought your phone on UK Orange or UK One2one your phone may be blocked. The reason is that they both transmitt on GSM1800. To make a call on GSM1800 you need what is known as a "Dual band" phone. A dual band phone is able to transmit on both GSM900 and GSM1800, so they lock the phones so you can't use it with any other network simcard. If you find that your phone is locked you can try different software to unlock it. (we havn't found one that works yet), or you can ask your service provider who will gladly exchange the 10 digit code for about 35.

This is how to check the status of the 4 different locks. Aslo don't try entering the wrong number, because after 3 times it will block the phone for good.


There are 4 different locks on your Nokia phone.





The code to read out the sim-lock status of your phone is







MASTERCODE = 1234567890


The master code is a secret code. The code has 10 digits, To read out the sim-lock status you can enter every combination you want!

"Y" Shows the status of the network-lock. Here you can enter a number from "1" to "4". The "4" is for the sim-card lock.







Note: Plz be careful while trying them.Plz try them at your own risk.
