Free UK Car History Check – Internet Secrets

February 22, 2012 Leave a comment

There seem to be a lot of adverts on TV for checking a used car’s history before you buy.

If you are simply browsing Autotrader or other used car websites / magazines you may wish to be able to check a few details without having to pay £3, £5, or even up to £30 straight away…

So here we are going to use the internet to our advantage.

For these websites below all you need is the registration number of the vehicle – they all tell you a few basic things but here I am telling you what they can tell you which is unique to each website.

Number Of Owners?

Car Tax Expiry Date

Is The Vehicle Currently Insured?

Your local police should be able to help you in making sure that the vehicle you are looking at isn’t stolen too which is also helpful. All that really leaves is whether it has been written off and repaired at all….

I have not found a way to check everything for free mainly whether it has been written off (Cat C or D) and if it is stolen or not.

iMessage Fails to Send

February 22, 2012 Leave a comment

Since iMessage was brought out last year (2011) I have been gladly using it as it means that I no longer need to rely on Apps like Whatsapp or Liveprofile to share photos and videos over WiFi.

But there is one major problem – sometimes it will go to send with the loading/sending bar going right up to just before the end (say 90%) and then it will just stay there for a few minutes, then just fail!

I know it is supposed to send via SMS if it doesn’t work and the contacts I’m sending it to do have SMS’able mobile numbers but it doesn’t tell me it is doing this. So I keep trying to send it and although it says ‘failed’ sometimes the recipients DO get the message…

This is just really annoying and I would like to know a fix!

Still No 04.11.08 iOS 5 Gevey Unlock!

December 31, 2011 2 comments

So it’s New Years Eve December 2011 and there is still no sign of a new Gevey Sim to unlock iPhones stuck on the 04.11.08 baseband.

Many people including myself thought that a new Gevey would be out by now, what is taking them so long? Has Apple finally stopped people from unlocking?

Here is the most current news on the Gevey sim:

 

A newer ultrasn0w unlock was released recently but it did not support the most wanted baseband 04.11.08. Here is more info on the latest news for ultrasn0w:
