Why do you say so ?
It is very easy to reconfigure Google authenticator.

I didn't know. Could you please let me know how to do it? Last time I changed my phone I had to manually reprogram all my Google authenticator codes again.

Appreciate your help but I read this on OPO forums. Just help me out with PayPal. What if I use my own address and link a friend's credit card to pay? Will it go through?

Ordered a OPO using an invite today. Couldn't get through PayPal at first because all the cards I used didn't have international transactions enabled. Even tried entropay but still no success. Later enabled international transactions and everything just went smooth. Now awaiting the shipment to be delivered at comgateway address.

Flipkart sometimes accepts non-Indian cards, and sometimes doesn't.

It's frustrating because one never knows if it will until the end of the order, and can't test it without buying something

I am looking for a simple contacts app that shows me only Phone numbers. I don't like the automatic linking to apps like Viber, Whatsapp, etc. the stock apps always connect the social apps and there is no way to switch it off. any suggestions?

You can turn of auto-syncs for the apps which you dont want to see on the contact details.

On a curious note, why is it that you want to see only phone numbers? I understand its clutter free. But I also would like to have all details of a person aggregated under a single entry.

Basic Advice Question:

Asus Fonepad 2014, 4Gg: R.6,999

Asus Fonepad 2014, 8Gg: R.8,999

As the first thing I would put in the device is a 32Gb card, is there any real advantage of the higher internal memory at the higher price?

(Prices: Flipkart)

Cool you got through!

I did not copy paste the forum link because sometimes the moderators blackmark that activity here.

For paypal verified address it has to be the same billing address of the credit card statement. Since OnePlus does not verify you should be good I suppose.

You will get great deals of phone cases in Aliexpress. Check it out.

No real advantage unless you plan on installing a lot of apps. The 4GB version might have around 2GB or so of user available space. Do consider that all apps cannot be moved to the SD card, so decide if that sort of space will be enough for you.

So Mrs G likes her new tab then?

8 Gb would be my choice because the latest apps and the data size always exceed quite a lot. Since you plan for 32 GB you can use that for storing other data.

I feel my 16 GB Ipad is insufficient just because of the apps and the data size.

Hah! She wants (and needs) a new laptop, and, if it is portable enough, would prefer that to the tab, but she enjoys playing games on the tab.

The biggest app I'm likely to install is Sygic navigation, and with maps, that is probably Gb-plus, but that will go on the SD card. Thinking I might even get 64Gb!

Guys,

What is a good app for blocking calls using wildcards? Of late, I am getting too many calls/texts from marketeers even with DND, most of them from 1402/9 numbers and TD-xxxx numbers.

I am running 4.1.2 on Galaxy S2.
