Avoid sticky situations by selling old mobile

People who frequently find themselves in awkward social situations, such as bad dates and boring birthday parties, may be wise to sell their old mobile and invest in a Nokia device.

This is because the Finnish brand has launched a pair of apps that may help people in such positions, explains Ian, author of the Nokia Conversations blog.

Of most interest to those looking to make a quick getaway is sure to be Desguiator, which allows users to set their mobile to ring after a certain signal.

Subtle movements such as tapping the handset are enough to trigger the usual call tone and, with a bit of creative thinking, owners can make their excuses and leave.

The writer goes on to note a more fun – and less sinister – app entitled Happy Birthday is also now available to those with compatible Nokia phones.

It allows people to enter the birthdays of their friends and family and, on those dates, a virtual cake can be presented complete with candles to blow out.

Nokia recently released the 5250, which may be a model just right for trying out the apps.
