2. Contacts you can upload to Gmail, and it will directly be synced to your phone when you log in. For pics and videos, just use bluetooth or use USB through your computer.
3. Apps: Only one place in India, the Play Store.

And yes, there is Team-BHP app, although it is not very good, it does the job. Link:Team BHP App
Thanks. Need one on urgent basis so will buy a cheap one now and order a good one as well.
As for loading contacts to gmail how is it done?

A sister of mine recently shifted from a BB to Android with my help. I believe there is some sort of app for BB which converts all contacts to a vCard file which can be uploaded to Gmail. There are many guides to do so, just Google it.

it shows in the samsung apps menu but takes me to Play store for purchase....
how nice it would have been if this was available on samsung app gift card.

Oh! That means one cannot buy it within the Samsung apps itself. Shoot! Would have been great if it didn't route to Play store.

Thanks for checking, Jaxy.

Before shifting to Android there should have been some way to sync your address book in black berry to Google.

So when you shift you can auto sync to the new device.

Thanks, looks like the best price out there. But now my mind is inclined to getting the Nexus 4, because of the 2gb RAM and the boat free android. I heard the S3 tends to lag after a while with the 1gb memory, and running multiple apps becomes a challenge. Only negative I see with the N4 is the missing expandable storage.

Can't find any issues like bad camera, viewing angles and some lagging. Seems made the right choice.
How is the phone doing now? Have you faced any issues yet?

Chroma doesn't have it in stock... Huge shortage of stock. Some dealers selling at huge premium of 44-45k.
Silver looked good but the white strip would turn yellow in due course of time. However the black one is completely black, no 2 color combo. Would try to post a few pictures later.

I have nexus 4. It is an amazing phone. I have a Rearth ringke slim case (available on amazon) and google official bumper.
http://www.amazon.com/SF-Matte-Black...ringke+nexus+4

Nothing beats Google official bumper IMHO. Fit is precise. Not sure if it's available in India yet.

As for loading contacts, synch your existing phones contacts with Windows contacts. Export them to CSV or excel. Synch it with your gmail by uploading that excel or CSV file you created earlier. Nexus 4 will import them itself when you configure it with your Google account.

Let me know if you need any other help with your nexus.

So now Google is playing dirty monopoly in the phone business, just to sell its Nexus, which doesn't have an external storage option. God Bless Nexus owners.

I didn't want to ask this (because I love the default Samsung+JB interface), but would you be able to tell me if using a Custom ROM would solve this problem ?
If yes, any pointers on a Good Custom ROM for Galaxy Grand ?

P.S: Below is the quote of one of the comments from THIS website:
I have micromax canvas a110, android version 4.1 jelly bean and i can move apps to sd card.

Hey,
Thanks for the info. Have done the same. Will let you know if this method works fine. Case looks great. The only issue is Amazon is not shipping it to india :(
So the full story is -
Received email from Flipkart on 23 may at 2am that Nexus 4 is back in stock. Logged in 5 mins later and it showed back in stock soon.
Still went ahead and booked it. Checked in morning delivery date was given as 1 June. That was an issue as i was going out on 31st may.
Called them and they said we can't commit but will ship as soon as its available.
Got email on 24th evening that phone has been shipped.
Got delivered at my home 5 mins back.
And all the time got email and calls about shipping status from FK support,
Impressed by their service even if their rates had gone up in recent times.
The only bad thing is Vodafone will give me micro sim tomm' so that wait will be killing.
