I went to Getjar.com for registration but they want my phone no.
Do u think it is safe ?
Yes, its 100% Safe
I don't why they need phone no.
Most of sites want model no.
Yes, right! Gimme your mobile number and I'll sell it to some shady people and see how many ads you get everyday through SMS/Call, not to mention if you are caught in some criminal conspiracy. At least think before you post.
Yeah, that's stupid. Just enter any random number like 999999999 or something and then select the option in blue which pops up in the confirmation window saying this is not my phone type. then you get a window saying enter your phone type and then enter model number. Thus you can select apps only for your model.
That may be because there is way to directly send application (or rather its wap links) to your phone. That is the reason. So then you can click on that wap link which may come in a SMS message and download that application.
You must have seen that each app there has a code. This is for easy reference that when you go to mobile getjar you just enter the application code to locate and donwload the application. But this scenario is possibly not for which phone number is required. But for previous one yes it is required.
^That looks like a nice way to get your number and then sell it to advertisers.
^^ Hmm..true it is better not to give or give any random number or give the number of person you hate
Sheesh . .Aspirin is just pwning himself since 1993 by the looks of this
No. You are better off finding another way to download an app than give them your mobile number.
some sites ask 4 no coz they can detect the phone model no 4m the cell no.
how is it possible to get the phone model no. from the phone no.?
I didn't give my phone no. when i registered for panda internet security. and they didn't provide me serial till now.
i dont know the exact method, but it is possible to trace the phone model no. Sometimes when u cal up ur customer care no they can tel u ur handset model.
customer care knows your mobile model because your mobiles register IMEI no. When it makes contact to your service provider. That's why the know your model no.
But there is no way for anyone other than your service provider to know your phones model no. from phone no.
Maybe You're Right But They Could be asking the Mobile Number for Confirmation Codes too.....
U may be right krow but when i try dwnlg softs 4m getjar.com they ask my mobile no n then they show my handset on da screen. What abt dat?
