Ok Guys if you want to call someone’s phone but you don’t want your number to display on their phone then this video will help. There is a few ways you can hide your number so let’s get started.

Prefix to hide your numbers.

Make your number Private on Android

If you want to make your phone private on all calls then tap on phone and then tap the three dots. If you don’t have the three dots. Just go into the Settings Then Call Settings on your Phone. On my Samsung I tap on Supplementary services and then show caller id and then hide number. Other Android phones might be different. You might have Operator’s Call Settings, Additional Settings, and Owner number. If you can’t find it there then try one of these other locations for different Android phones. Ok before we call that crazy person lets test it to another phone to make sure its hidden.

Please always test the number before calling. Don’ take my word for it. Type *67. This code will work with virtually any North American provider.

Numbers to use – Test them first ! 🙂

*67 – United States (except AT&T), Canada (landline), New Zealand (Vodafone phones) #31# – United States (AT&T phones), Australia (mobile)[3], Albania, Argentina (mobile), Bulgaria (mobile), Denmark, Canada (mobile), France, Germany (some mobile providers), Greece (mobile), India (only after network unlock), Israel (mobile), Italy (mobile), Netherlands (KPN phones), South Africa (mobile), Spain (mobile), Sweden, Switzerland (mobile)

*31* – Greece (landline), Iceland, Netherlands (most carriers), Romania, South Africa (Telkom phones) 133 – Hong Kong

*43 – Israel (landline)

*67# – Italy (landline) 184 – Japan 0197 – New Zealand (Telecom or Spark phones) 1167 – Rotary phones in North America

Ok guys this video will show you the official way to transfer all your data from Android to Pixel 4.

This is helpful if you just got your Pixel 4 phone and you want to move all your Texts ,Messages,  contacts, calendars, photos, videos, free apps and music to your Pixel 4.

Ok guys lets get started. If you have a new pixel 4 then you will see this start screen. However if you have already setup your phone then you will need to reset the Pixel 4 back to factory defaults.

Reset your Pixel 4 phone.

We can do this under settings > System and Advanced then reset options. Just remember if already have data on your Pixel phone this will wipe that data. So make sure you backup that data before doing the factory reset. Go ahead and Erase all data again and confirm it.

All right, that will set your Pixel 4 back to factory defaults and you will be able to start the Transfer from Android.

 Also guys I get asked this question all the time will it transfer App Data. The answer is Yes. Will it transfer Paid apps. Again the answer is Yes.

Alright so we are back at the Start screen so just hit Start. Now if you have your sim you can put it In now. Otherwise you can hit skip. You don’t need a sim to Transfer data. Next connect your WIFI. This is important because the Pixel 4 will download the updated Transfer software.

Once connected the Pixel will check for that software I mentioned. Ok just tap next. And tap next again and then it will ask you for your old phone. Make sure you remove your passcode or any security features on your Android Phone. You will also need your old phone cable.

Plug in your two phones

Using the USB C adapter to move the data

The Pixel 4 should have a USB to USB C adapter, plug the other end into your old phone USB cable and then plug the adapter end into your Pixel 4.

Now go ahead and plug both phones into each other to start the transfer.

 Tap Copy on your old Android Phone. Ok cool, the Pixel 4 will give you a summary of what you can transfer.

Just untick any data that you don’t want to transfer and tap copy. Also if you copying fails, try this method again but maybe try a small transfer first like contacts. Double check you don’t have any security options like passcodes that could block the transfer. Congratulations you just copied your data tap on next and unplug your phones. Follow the prompts of your phone.

Your Pixel 4 should show you a confirmation of the data you have copied. Alright you all done. Check your data and you are good to go.

Google Pixel 4 Unboxing Firstlook

Google Pixel 4 Unboxing Firstlook

A look at the Google Pixel 4

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video we take a first look at the Google Pixel 4 Unboxing. Check out the Pixel 4 on Amazon here 👉 https://amzn.to/30Bb6QU

Prices for the Pixel 4 start at $799 us and it is $100 cheaper than the Pixel 4 XL. And the main new features for the Pixel 4 over the Pixel 3 are a new bigger OLED display which has improved refresh rate up to 90hz. As well as 6 GB of Ram and a new Snapdragon 855 processor.

And of course it launches with Android 10 right of the bat.

Pixel 4 Unboxing – Right out of the Box!

All right guys let’s get to the unboxing and take a look what’s inside. So the first thing we see when doing the Google Pixel 4 Unboxing is the phone itself wrapped in plastic. And the colour I got is the clearly white, but it is also available in Just Black and Oh So Orange.

Under the phone we have the pretty standard documentation. This includes a SIM eject tool and user guide on how to setup your Pixel.

Next up we have a set of Google Pixel USB-C earbuds and there is an adjustable loop on the earbuds which allows you to set the size of your ear so they grip to the inside of your ear better.  Also included is a USB C cable and adapter for charging the phone. This adapter has the Australia new Zealand plug. However if you are in the US you will have the US adapter. You will also get a USB C to USB adapter plug. This is helpful when transferring content with the a USB cable.

Design

The pixel 4 is a decent looking phone. I actually like the design of it. It has a low key clean look. It has matt black rails that go all the way around the side of the phone. No markings along the back just the Google G at the bottom and at the top a black square which contains the rear facing camera. As well as the coloured power button on every version.

Google Pixel 4 Unboxing
Google Pixel 4 Unboxing – Display

The screen on the Pixel 4 is bigger than the Pixel 3 going from 5.5 inches to 5.7 inches. Its also got more rounded corners and it doesn’t include the annoying notch that some other phones have.

The Screen

It’s a FHD+ flexible OLED display at 444 pixels per inch and contains another big upgrade which is called Smooth Display. Smooth Display refreshes the display at 90 Hz instead of the normal 60 Hz this means the scrolling and movement of the screen will look somewhat smoother than normal. The downside to high refresh rate is the battery life. More power is needed to refresh the screen more often and thus this feature has been blamed for the Pixel 4s poor battery life.

Playing Games!

You can turn this feature off at least under the Advanced Display settings. I found it hard to tell the difference when looking at the phone in person so maybe this isn’t such a big deal for normal use.

The phone doesn’t have a finger print sensor which I thought would be quite annoying. But it does have the fastest face unlock of any smart phone.  It does this by detecting movement earlier with a little sensor called Motion Sense. This sensor detects moment early and prepares the phone to detect a face. Once it detects your face the phone unlocks it works really well.

Motion Sense

You can turn Motion Sense off under Settings System and you can also use this feature to skip songs, silence /snooze alarms and silence phone calls.

On the right hand side you have a coloured sleep wake power button. The colour will be different depending on which colour you buy. And below that you have the volume up and down buttons. On the left side you have the sim card slot. If you eject the slot you will see a little rubber seal which keeps water out and makes the phone dust and water resistant. This gives the pixel its IP68 water resistant rating.

On the bottom the speaker slots are lined up nicely with the USB type C port. On the top of the pixel  there is allot of action going on however its mostly hidden so the best way to show you is with a picture. You have a Face unlock IR Camera, 8 mega pixel Front facing camera, Ambient light Proximity sensor, Audio port, Soli radar chip, Face unlock dot Projector, Face unlock IR Camera and Face unlock Flood illuminator.

Audio

The speakers sound really good and here’s a quick sample.

Good for Movies!

The specs for the Pixel 4 are similar to the Pixel 4 XL they both have the Snapdragon 855 cpu and 6 GB of Ram. Of course to view video on the screen and play games you will need to help of a GPU and the Pixel 4 comes with the Adreno 640 chip. This also gives us a pretty solid improvement over the Pixel 3. Both the Pixel 4 and XL come with a storage options of 64 GB or 128 GB.

Battery

Battery size has been downgraded from a 2915 mAh battery on the Pixel 3 to a 2800 mAh battery on the Pixel 4. Its disappointing to say the least as the battery doesn’t seem to last as long as it should.

Camera

In terms of the two cameras on the back of the Pixel 4 you have a 12.2 mega pixel, dual pixel rear camera with a 1.7 aperture. And you also have a 16 mega pixel telephoto camera with a f 2.5 aperture. Testing out the Super Res Zoom on the camera and it does a good job zooming down the street. The Telephoto camera only has a 2x optical zoom this mean the rest of the zoom is handled by the Super Res Zoom.

The camera also has some neat new sliders for exposure and shadows adjustment. And as you can see here I change the exposure and shadows on the fly. Even when objects are closer the camera does a really good job keeping all the detail.

Lets take a quick look at the camera settings. At the bottom we have different modes. Night sight for night photos. Portrait mode for Portrait photos. The regular camera mode and a Video mode.  We also have a more setting which opens up Panorama mode. Photo sphere which is a 360 degree Panorama feature. Slow motion and time lapse mode.  Playground mode which allows you to put object within other photos.

Google Lens

And the last one is Google Lens which allows you to take photo and then it will return a Google search on the object that you photograph. As for video it will do 720p 1080p and 4K, but you will need to turn on the 4K feature in settings.

Don’t forget the Pixel 4 also support wireless charging. When using the pad you might need to ajust the phone slightly until it makes a connection.

Overall the Pixel 4 is a great phone, but I find it hard to recommend because of the small battery. I also found the software at times buggy, like when using the zoom on the camera and for no reason it would flick back to the home screen. I can imagine this happening when you are about to capture that special moment. Very frustrating.
