Hey guys, just stumbled upon a free airtel gprs trick on java enabled phones. Visit airtelguru.com and download the OM AG 2011 from there. Using default mobile office settings, u can browse free net when balance is below 30ps. Just try it and respond if its working in whole of india or not.

A better alternative to C3, no flash though:

The Mobile Store | Mobile PDA and Smartphones | Samsung Chat 335 S3350

Here it is
Changelog:

•Web updated to 7.2.8.10
•Quickoffice updated to 6.4.166, editing functions now enabled on the N8 (i.e. don’t have to pay to upgrade), improved zooming functions
•Adobe Reader updated to 2.5.653
•Big update to Nokia Email; performance improved; ‘unread emails’ flag added to homescreen widget; meeting requests can be accepted directly from email invitations; maps integration, which means people can view the meeting location on the map when the address is mentioned in the location field in the invite
•General performance improvements
•Dialer now works in landscape mode
•Previous performance updates are rolled in and, in the full (Ovi Suite-installed, >100MB) image, there’s the facility to provide a better working starting point than hard resetting a PR 1.0 device
Well the top point explains the bigger update in ovi suite,it reinstalls all the earlier updates.

couple of changes that I have felt after installing PR1.1 on my Nokia N8
  • firmware update deleted my contacts & had to restore them from a backup...so please backup before updating. This is supposed to be very rare but still better safe than sorry
  • overall the phone feels smoother and faster
  • landscape dialer
  • touchscreen buttons are no longer active when the screen is switched off by the proximity sensor...major thing for me as this had resulted in countless random & dropped calls for me in the past.

more updates (if any) as I find them.

peace,

Default Samsung Wave II / Ace or HTC Desire / Wildfire ? Confused !!!

Guys,

Am planning to but a Smartphone very soon. Am confused between Wave II, Ace and HTC Desire/Wildfire. Desire and Ace runs on Android while Wave II runs the Bada O.S. Is Bada as good as Android ? Which one of these has a solid build, reliable and good After Sales Service Support if needed ? My Budget is around 20k. Please advice.

Thanks.

Default Mobile Phone battery charging prob.

Got a Fly Mobile DS 430. When i connect it to the charger, the displays shows that the phone is charging, but even after hours of charging, the battery level remains the same.

Is this a battery prob or has something gone wrong in the phone. Coz the phone has fallen down a few times.

Anyone else facing similar probs on their phone?

Most probably a battery problem - leaked Li-Ion cells are not able to get charged up and the charging goes on and on.

It happens when battery is gone, I mean dead. I faced the same problem with one of my mobile (Spice ) and it was resolved by changing to new battery.

I brought a motorola defy couple of days back. Th phone was working brilliant(infact i fell in love wit it) untill i noticed a bright small spot on the black screen. I went mad, tourtured the phone by switching off and on, changed softwares etc etc but of no use. The spot was still there and it seems like a dead pixel. So i decided to take it customer care and they have asked me to repair it instead of exchange. But after strong protests and heated discussions with the customer care people, they have agreed to exchange the phone with a brand new one. They have asked for a time of 2 weeks and hopefully i will be getting a brand new Motorola Defy by next week.
