What model are you using? In galaxy 3 there is a setting called text to speech which can do the job for you.

Did anyone try the winamp for droid? I was not able to attend calls using my headset once I installed the app!

Has anyone come across a proper call recorder app? I have tried couple of such apps but none of them seem to work properly.

xingamazon, you can try this
RockPlayer: First public beta available - xda-developers
But I am not sure of Arm v6 (Entry level droids) can play flv, as flash support is avaiable only on arm 7 and up (Galaxy, Desire, Milestone, Xperia... etc.,)

what does brown mean here?
in case its color, does it mean we cant buy black or any other color available?
if its 4GB, it means its the SL. I think the SL is a great deal

I was thinking of getting a Inspire 4G, its the same as the Desire HD but it has a 4 GB internal memory instead of 1.5 GB and has Super-LCD capacitive touchscreen in place of the LCD capacitive touchscreen

The only problem with that is, its a AT&T specific mobile - HTC Inspire

So does anyone know where I can get it unlocked?

[Video Tutorial] Unleashing your Inspire 4G [PermaRoot, SIM Unlock, S-Off, Sound Fix] - xda-developers

kinda tricky, but works.

option two: www.davinciteam.com pay $25 and they will sent you unlock code.

hope this helps

I wanted to know, does rooting remove the Company Specific items?
Like Timescape/Mediascape or HTC Sense ?

Also how will the unlock code work?

Has anyone seen/used the new Galaxy Pop. About 8.5k GSM and 9.8k CDMA. Froyo/600Mhz. looks like an excellent value for the price.

Total Recall is one of the best call recording app for Android but now a days you don't need third party apps as in most of the custom rom - the rom creators include recording apk which will record you telephone conversation as and when required.

Let me know which phone you are using and I might be able to help.

A colleague of mine has it. It's compact and resembles typical lightweight samsung candybar models. Felt responsive enough. It has a slightly smaller screen size if I remember right and felt like having a lesser resolution from the colors displayed. But compared to my much heavier LG OO, it does look like a VFM option. I think it's an excellent entry level android.

I remember him saying something about a poor camera, never verified that though.
