So it will be Push or Wifi then, that can be the drainers. Do a restore and see if it helps.
Yes,You are right buddy . I know its bizarre i have go to international roaming and national roaming . And in both the scenarios i have never seen "E" icon. However the moment i come to my own city that creepy "E"icon pops up. And after few minutes my phones gets hot like an oven. And there you go another hour and battery's gone .
I did a restore one time and you wont believe what happened. The restore failed in the middle and my ph got locked. Then i got it unlock . Then i inserted the SIM and it took the settings somewhere and i saw again that "E" icon.
However the new thing which i have done is i went to my email setting and did all sorts of notifications and updates on manual. And its behaving as per now. However i have to see it for next 2-3 days to see if its helping or not.
I am wondering if i have to send a message to vodafone people to disable the edge service and may be this will help?what do you guys reckon?will it make sense for me to ask them?
Once again thanks jaggu and tejas,Appreciate it buddy!!

Hi Jaggu,Hi Tejas

I had change the push mail settings to manual at around 4 o clock in the evening as per your advice. I was charging it since morning till 5 o clock and then i left home. I came just now and its 11 o clock i havent charged it. And the battery is still 85pc. And i took 5 calls. In normal scenarios it would have been exhausted by now. But its behaving today. I would wait for another 2-3 days to announce it formally to be fixed. But i would like to thank you guys in advance. Thanks for taking interest over this matter buddies.
Cheers!!

Default TouchPad on iphone

I am not too sure if any iphone users here have come across this app but Logitech has released a free app which enables us to control our laptop or desktop through iphone touch interface.

I use it for presentation purpose and its neat little app. i am actually loving it.

Its available from app store. Need to install on Iphone and another software on pc/laptop/mac from Logitech's website. Need to have wi-fi to use this app. Both the iphone and pc should be on same wi-fi.

Once that is done you can control mouse movement, keyboard inputs, scrolling from your iphone. Its pretty smooth and fantastic.

Do try it out and let me know your feedback.

When I last checked 16 GB 3gS was available at Alfa (Irla) for 35k. If you happen to go there also get your handset checked by their guy who does the unlocking/ jailbreaking. I've heard that he is good may be he can help you out.

It's time to switch over to the dark side and get the Bold2

My 2g iPhone was surprisingly sturdy, thanks to the metal back, I guess. Dropped it several times, it did get a few scratches and small dent at the top but phone was rock solid in overall build.

My 2G also has taken severe drops of more than 5 feet at times. I guess this was the last straw.

Also, i'm a complete mac junkie and the amount of times i have done BB bashing, getting one now would be sacrilege!

Thanks. Couldn't wait though. Bought a factory unlocked piece for 34.5K (16GB).

Any reviews on how good is the GPS chip in the phone. Anyone tried out MMI maps?

GPS chip is quite good, if you are finding any difficulty in locking in between, just goto airplane mode and back. I think its the AGPS or Cellular transmission goofing up.

Now the rumor says its going to be March 25th

UNITED at napeansea road. Opposite contemporary arts and craft.

EDIT: Paid 35k with cover and screen guard totally and i know him since ages. He may not give you the same deal but won't charge anything more than 35k for 16gb.
