I got iPhone 4 from Singapore. Tried cutting my vodafone SIM so it fits in it but have not been successful.

Anyone in Bangalore who managed to make a working micro SIM willing to help me

There's a stappler like tool available for this, however you can use
youtube based videos to do the same using a scissors too.

Hope you can get your issue resolved. Hope you have checked if you have the latest software.
The cam's good in daylight but a disaster in dark, it doesn't come with a flash! And yeah, there's no QWERTY, but with the capacitive touchscreen, typing is easy. I hope I flash it to the latest firmware. Will flashing it (with the latest firmware from the Samsung website) void warranty?

Guys
My sister needs to buy a nice touchscreen phone withing 10-11000 Rupees. Please guide me into getting an easy to use, feature loaded phone which is great value for money. It must be solidly built as well. Shouldn't look quirky, but, elegant.

How can the warranty be voided if you flash it form Samsung's own website? I'd think not.

But how is the cam when compared to other good 3 MP cams in the dark and without flash? Doesn't it have a night mode?

C5 has been in the market for quite sometime and comes with a 2.2" TFT LCD (16 million colours) with QVGA resolution. This display is also seen in other Nokia models like 6220 Classic and 5630 XM.

Sony Ericsson Naite would probably be the best device for you.

Guys,

Need a small help. I dont know how Radio mirchi got activated on my mobile. Probably my friends might have tried using it. Now I am not able to deactivate the same on Airtel. They send me remainders that they shall deduct INR 10/Week for the usage of the radio, which I dont use it anytime. And airtel customer care, as you know is non-responsive.

Does anyone know how to deactivate the same via SMS or for that matter anyway to deactivate the same

Sorry being OT: But wanted help on the same

This link here:Mirchi Mobile on Airtel

says 'Call 59830800 (free) to deactivate from the service'

Hope it works.

Default High-end Non-Touch Screen Cell Phone

Guys,

I am really tired of the touch phones lately. I knew that was coming when I bought the N900 after the excellent Nokia E90 that I gave to my dad. I drive a lot and no matter how illegal it is to not talk while driving, sometimes we cant just help it. Touch screen phones force the users to 'see' the screen to make sure that the command has been registered. It makes the touch phones very uncomfortable to use and the tactile feedback is something I miss. I am also missing the one hand operation of a regular phone that have been dominating the market till these touch things came in.

I want a feature rich phone and don't want the blackberry, nor the E Series Nokias which are doing fairly well. Blackberry is ruled out because of the expensive data plan. I have a 200 bucks unlimited one which is unusable on any phone but blackberry's. All the connectivity options should be there and GPS is optional but Wifi is required. Also the phone should be a professional looking one. Any ideas guys??

Thanks,
Abhinav
