Unblock Google Maps Blocked by Firewall

In Office whenever I tried to access Google Maps I got following firewall restriction message. 

FortiGuard Web Filtering 
Web Page Blocked!

You have tried to access a web page which is in violation of your internet usage policy.
URL: maps.google.com/maps?

I am unsure why my company is blocking Google Maps over Firewall. One Day I found one of my office colleague accessing Google Maps, I asked me how could he access Google Maps when it is blocked by our office firewall.

He said their is a simple trick which can let us access Google Maps service.

How to Unblock Google Maps Blocked by Firewall

Simply add HTTPS httpS://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl to the blocked URL to unblock Google Maps, now the maps would open without any blocking.

How I increased my Windows Phone battery life

No Smart phone (Be it Android, IOS , Windows Phone) could provide more than ~3-4 Hrs battery life if used heavily. This is biggest challenge for mobile manufacturer companies.

Solution available at present in market

1. In Australia, there are mobile battery charging stations to recharge your mobile.

2. Microsoft Windows Phone version 8 has launched wireless recharging functionality through wireless charging station places at various places, like Airport etc.

I have seen several articles on this topics but I want to share what I do to keep my (Samsung Omnia W - Windows Phone 7.10) phone up and running with one full recharge in a Day, as well as other tip to keep my phone battery last longer.

What I do keep my phone up and running whole Day with one full recharge?

1. Don't keep Data connection always ON: Instead keeping data connection ON all time, I turn it ON and OFF frequently, say every 1 Hr I turn it on for few minutes to check emails, important alerts, social media notification (Facebook, Twitter etc) and then turn it OFF.

2. SMS over Calling: I prefer messaging (SMS), instead calling unless calling is required, if calling is required I keep my conversation (Calls) short and simple.

3. No Full Volume: I do not listen to Songs \ FM at full volume, I set volume as 25/30, as high volume causes battery to drain faster.

By following these simple tips Daily, I keep my phone going ON through out Day, and in a Day I listen to music for more than 1 Hr, I play game (My Favorite Chess4All), use Internet for browsing, chatting (Facebook, Whatsapp).

What to do to make my phone battery last longer?

1. Keep WI-FI, Bluetooth, Location service OFF, if you require to use them than after using these services turn them OFF.

2. Turn OFF Vibration mode, as vibration mode consume more battery power than normal ringer.

3. Set 'Lowscreen brightness, by default it is high brightness, the higher the brightness more battery power is required.

4. Choose 'Dark' (Black) background than 'light' (White) background, Black background consumes less battery power.

5. Screen lock out time, set screen-shot lock out time to 30 seconds, unless you are reading a PDF book.

6. Do not keep 'Data Connection' always ON, turn it on at regular interval to check important update and surfing.

Note: These all the settings are available in Settings menu (application).

What to do when your phone battery is too low?

1. Turn OFF data connection and Turn OFF Vibration, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Location Service.

2. Or you can go to 'Battery Saver' option in 'Settings' menu and check mark: 'Turn on Battery Saver now, until the next charge'. Changing these setting will automatically block all communication except Callings and SMSing.

If you use phone heavily for email, browsing, and chatting then your battery will get drained in 2-3 Hrs, so its better to keep a micro-USB charger in handy which you can use to connect to your office PC / Laptop etc.

- Today, I came to know about 'Solar Charger' mobile application for Windows Phone through which can charge our Mobile Phone battery by making our phone screen acting as solar panel, I will test this application and will update further whether it really works.

Applies To: Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 7.5, Windows Phone 8

How to keep Windows Phone in silent mode

How to keep Windows Phone in silent mode
Their are occasions when we go to meetings, conferences and at such places it becomes necessary to put our phone into silent mode. 

But if you are new to Windows phone or not a tech savvy then you might find it difficult to put your cell phone in silent mode and when you don't know this, situation may require you to turn off your phone and if you turn off your phone you might miss important missed calls.

By default, in Windows Phone we do not have any shortcut to change phone profile to silent mode until or unless we disable (Turn off) Vibration.

How to keep Windows Phone in silent mode

1. Go to Settings Menu in your phone.

2. Then choose Ringtones+sounds option 

3. Now turn Off (Slide Left) Ringer 

4. Now turn Off (Slide Left) Vibrate 

Once you turn off (Slide Left) both Ringer and Vibrate option your phone goes to silent mode.

Note: If you do not use vibrate mode always or frequently then keep it off, this will make it easier to switch between ringer and silent mode by using volume key on your phone.

Press the volume key on left hand side of your phone and then tap over ring to change to silent and tap over silent to change to ring mode. This volume key shortcut to put your mobile phone into silent mode would work only if vibrate option is OFF.
