OMG !! I forgot mobile number of my sim card...
I forgot my mobile number, how to recharge it...
I have a sim card but i forgot the mobile number....
How can i get the phone number of my sim card....
Still there are some who are telling their sim card numbers, that 20 digit number embossed on sim, to know their mobile number. Did you ever said that or something like this ? Lots of people are often found saying all these questions in forums. This tutorial is for those who are stuck in such a situation.
A bit research on google showed how many people are in such situation. Well truth is i too was in this situation just now, and when i solved it, i thought to help all of you to get out of this mess.
Well no big words, that i made this trick or hack, it's just a process that can hep you get rid of his situation. Almost every mobile network provides such codes to subscribers, so that they don't have to face such situation, but problem is that these codes stay hidden, no company tells about these, ofcourse because it is a rare situation.
It has been tested, and on getting success it has been posted here :
- Dial a Toll Free Number 1800-2660000 from your sim card whose number you want to know.
- You will connected to IVR that will tell you about TATA DOCOMO services
- Choose the language of your choice (PRESS 1 OR 2 OR 3)
- Then after selecting your language, Press 3
- Then Press 2
- At last Press 3
- Then you will be notified about your mobile number.
- That’s it!!
# UPDATE :
We have got to know that there are some companies, which have specific codes. Below is a list of codes for various mobile companies.

What is SociaLink :
But now we have the solution, SociaLink iPhone app that helps you to connect and buid your most of the social media profiles. Now you don't need to do like before. Understand this with a live example.
Recently, while searching the iTunes like i usually do, i found an app that promised to make connecting with people on the web easier. As i usually keep on getting lots of friends requests and have to meet lot of people being an Attorney and Geek Upd8 Founder, i thought, i should give it a try. Being a free app, i instantly downloaded on my iPhone. After that i tried to open it and it had a simple and nice looking UI. After spending some time and taking a look at it's features i just closed it.
Few days after, i was invited in a public event being Geek Upd8's Editorial Director on the launch of 4G by Airtel Bharti in Chandigarh. I went there and as the ceremony was about to begin, i met a friend of mine, who was working there. He introduced me to some of the big personalities who have reached over there. And it finally ended up in sharing our Linkedin profiles. Adding many people is a tough job. But i suddenly remembered the app that i have downloaded few days back. I switched on bluetooth and fortunately some of them had the app too, and it just took few seconds to connect with them on my Linkedin profile and others who didn't had SocioLink app on their iPhones, were quite amazed with this product. But even with them, i just had to ask their email id's and it was done.
That day i felt what this app could actually do for me.This technology is marvelous. Connecting and Building Social Links on Web.
iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3/4/5 gen) and iPad
Requires iOS 5.1 or later
SociaLink from iTunes (1.1 MB)

Current IssueAs you might be already knowing that you are victim of Google Indexing issues, which thousands of fellow bloggers are facing too, so stay cool and don't worry. But, i would suggest you to confirm that if this is the issue in your case. To make sure, you are a part of the same boat, point your browser to your google.com, now here, add this search query to the search box "site:geekupd8.com". In your case, replace geekupd8.com with your site url. Now, there you might be able to Search Tools, select that and select Last 24 hrs, instead of Any Time, now in case you have posted any article in last 24 hours, it should be appearing in search results page. But if there is no result found, you can conclude that you too are facing the google indexing problem.
Last year that is 2012, in the month of october, there was same problem, when most of the bloggers were facing fall in traffic after 19th of October, as the fresh content was added with delay or not added at all. At that time, JohnMu (Google Employee and Forum Moderator) appeared on the Google Help forum for webmasters and officially announced the issues that were going on.
Today (Feb 2013), we are not sure, whether this is the same problem or it's something else, but the symptoms resemblance, points towards the same direction. There have been no official announcement from Google on this topic yet. The Google Webmasters Help Forum have been flooded with the queries from bloggers across the globe, complaining the issues with Google indexing problem.
What can i could do right now ?Perhaps, this is the time when we you to wait and watch, and give sometime to officials at Google and see why this is being caused.
Technically, we can suggest you few things which can help you to verify, that you are not having any issues from you side. I suggest that you go through all these points carefully and only than post your query on:
Google Webmasters help Forum >> Crawling and Indexing.
In case you've already posted your query, you are advised still to go through them and update your post, if you find any issue on your side, so that contributors can help you accordingly.
1. Problems with your Robots.txt
Robots.txt is the file that helps you to allow or disallow search engines from indexing a page or part of website or complete website. In blogger blogs, you can access your robots.txt file at address like this:
http://tech.geekupd8.com/robots.txt. To modify the settings, you can visit your blogger account and visit settings and change accordingly.
Note: You can copy the robots.txt fie of Geek Upd8 and use it for yourself, as it is working perfectly. Don't forget to modify the url's accordingly.
2. Problems with .htaccess file
This file is not visible on servers. Bloggers don't have access to this file at all. The /htaccess file that is not configured properly can be a real danger for the proper indexing of the website.
3. Meta Tags
These play a great role in the websites and blogs indexing. In case you don't know much about, that means you are missing alot. Make sure you have not made the following settings in your meta tags.
<META NAME=”ROBOTS” CONTENT=”NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW”>
These settings as can be seen direct search engines not to index the specific page as well as not the follow the links in it.
4. Server Issues
Server issues are mostly not in our hands unless you are not managing your own servers, which is not the thing in most of our cases. Sometimes servers downtime can be cause of the non indexing or the delay in indexing of the content. You can confirm this with your webhost in case you are running blog on platforms like wordpress or tumbler. Bloggers who are using blogger.com don't need to worry about it, as there have been no such downtime in blogger that could be cause of this Google Indexing problem.
This is another point that can cause the delay in your content indexing by Google. In case you don't have a good page rank, you may not get indexed that quickly. You can consider page rank as a priority order for Google spiders to Index content present on internet, just like the sitemaps priority that you fix.
6. Problems with Sitemap
Sitemap is something that plays the most vital role in the indexing of a blog or website. Once google spiders reach according their priority to your website, they are directed by your sitemap about how to go through your blog. Thus sitemaps play really vital role in indexing.
You can submit your sitemap to Google in the webmaster tools. Do it right now, if you haven't yet.
7. Search Engine Penalty
Last but not the least, it is the factor that cannot be ignored at all. Google is a great search engine. We like it cause of the quick and best results that we get from it. They are accurate. But why are they accurate. Why Google gets us the websites that actually have the content, that we are looking for. Ever wondered why ? This is because Google have it's own mechanism of selecting websites that are to stay on Google SERP's and sieve out the rest. This removal of websites from Google Search Engine Result Pages is due to the Search Engine penalties, Google in this case. The penalties can be triggered by various issues in your website, it can any of the following:
a. Low qualiy content
b. Lots of links (link farming)
c. Excessive use of keywords
d. Links from spammy websites
e. Sites generating spam
f. Sites publishing duplicate content
h. Sites that are using abusive/offensive language
These are some of the factors that trigger the search engine penalties. In case you are doing any of these, that means you are on a wrong track.
ConclusionFinally, you are suggested to take a look at your website or blog again. Try to fix the issues if there are any. In case there are no such issues listed above with your blog, you can post your query and wait for a response. Hopefully Google will come up with a fix soon.

Facebook have been here on web from quite some time, and we all know it have captured the web. It have got a record of daily active users as well as pageviews. So, obviously, if a website like Facebook which is the most used social network for the moment is generating such a vast traffic from 1 Billion users, it would want to generate income from it too.
The Facebook IPO was an attempt from the company to make big profits by entering into public, but that turned out to be failure. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook had his eye on the IPO since long. Besides that the company has been seen making various changes in it's advertising platform, to bring new sources of income, many times such changes went positive. Thus facebook have always been thriving for making their revenue stream bigger.
Today we at Geek Upd8, noticed another attempt by the company that would make a double benefit for the Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg by adding new followers to his pocket as well adding to the company revenues. The company has been noticed to have introduced a system, through which you can send a message to Mark Zuckerberg directly to his inbox, the filter of facebook messaging that otherwise would have made your message go to the other messages, which means spam basically, would now allow your message to go directly to his inbox, If you are willing to pay $100 for that message for that single message.
One thing that need tobe mentioned here is that,you will see the message as shown in picture above, only if you are not following Zuckerberg. So, if you wanna save, 100 bucks, start following him ;) Seems, facebook is too much eager to get money now. But all in all, it's their part of world.
Let us know, if you liked what facebook is trying with this attempt.
