If not search for the correct frequency on that store.
I am using the 4G sim, so which one to go for. I have Idea and Vodafone and both are having poor signals. This is purely because of a new apartment coming up next to mine, prior to it, the signals were good.

I am not sure about your location. Airtel 4G has two bands - one of them will be applicable in your location. Can you check that?

Got the below info from http://www.worldtimezone.com/gsm.html

4G LTE Bharti Airtel 2300Mhz

Is this what I need to look for? I am based out of Hyderabad.

Just found another thread on TBHP
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/gadget...m-mobiles.html (External antenna/signal booster for GSM mobiles)

(No one has suggested a suitable solution).

I think you have an antenna connector on your dongle, you could see if you get good reception in some direction and put a passive antenna on that side (simple piece of wire).

Since you do have good signal outside the shadow of the other flats, you'd have to put an antenna with a view of the cell tower and bring in the signal (may need boosting if the distance is long) into your house.

Hope someone with more knowledge and experience can comment.

Enticingly priced again, but - isnt there any other option in the Rs 5000 range that is available in India and takes better videos? I wasnt too happy at its ability to record car license plates vs the DOD/SJ etc in some recent posts.

Is this a genuine blaupunkt or a Chinese imitation?

Exactly. The pricing is brilliant. But quality of recording leaves a lot to be desired. Videos on YouTube show the same.

Bosch got out of the aftermarket audio business long ago and a Chinese company bought the trade name Blaupunkt. Now there are a multitude of many products with name Blaupunkt e.g. sunfilms and what not. So do use your 6th sense before you go by the name Blaupunkt.... It is not Bosch anymore. Sad.

I was looking for some bluetooth headsets online. I stumbled upon a nice looking unit from Jabra. Flipkart showed the price as 1650 after claiming discount of 24% over the MRP of 2199.
Where as Amazon is selling the same unit for 1699 without any discount.
Am confused about which one to go for. Why this ambiguity :banghead:

Ordered car accessory from Amazon.com on 10th Aug. Seller (from China) shipped the item in couple of days through Chinapost but the tracking information remains same for past 20 days. Is this normal? I mailed Chinapost, but no response for more than a week.
