What is this smart dialing? Why can we just use an app to achieve the smart dialing?
Smart dialing means when you start typing first few numbers or characters the phone automatically suggests the contacts. Without smart dialing you have to manually scan through the contacts list.

Moving from Nokia, this was one thing that struck me! No profiles! Nowadays I manage fine with a low/high ringer and sometimes off. Since it can be changed quickly through volume keys, am not complaining!

It would have probably come installed with Google Maps. You can try using Brut Maps, which would enable you to use the voice guidance as well!

Samurai San,

I had posted a few pages back that its available for 15808. Why o why did you buy at 19k? NAHINNNNN!!!

PS: Read its review well. There's one earpiece or battery wala rubber gasket which needs to be seated properly before you take it into the wet!!
PPS: As far as the safety limit is concerned, I always follow the Europeans - they are MORE paranoid than the Americans
PPPS: Now that you have, A VERY BIG CONGRATS! Kindly do run quadrant (check in android market) and tell us the benchmark numbers
PPPPS: Froyo preloaded I presume? A lil birdie told me so.
even i looked at the Defy as well for a long time, and yes, its still at around 18800-19k here in Bangalore. To that end, I finally ended up getting the Samsung Galaxy SL for 20 something a couple of weeks back. Actually i paid 12900 after trading in my E72. I surprisingly got 8k for that phone. Lovin the Sammy so far, the only thing is the slippery plastic body has made me drop the phone once already :(. I might need to look at a rubbery cover or something. The plastic does attract a lot of finger prints though. I never really used the original Galaxy S so i cant say how much better the AMOLED screen is vs. the SLCD on the SL, but boy the 4" screen is gorgeous . I still think Samsung could have put a flash for the camera, but i barely use the camera anyways, so its not a big deal for me. Im still getting used to typing on a touch screen phone, but im sure i will get the hang of it soon enough. One thing though, when i try to do an OTA update on my phone, the phone keeps saying connection failed. What could this be about?

Any one facing similiar issue here?
Hi Arvind,

I did face the same issue . This happens only on outlook 2010 or 2007 ( not sure ) the default email application is not working due to an issue with active sync.
You have already tried touch down .. so noting much to do further now

Bought HTC Desire HD few weeks back. Loaded Transformers 2 to test the Dolby Mobile and SRS. Killer performance on the 4.3 in screen with great audio! Realized the potential of phone when I took it to my friend who is an "Androbrain". He installed Go Launcher in few minutes and entire feel of the phone changed. Will never go back to Sybian for sure and feels that no one makes Android phones better that HTC(We had some comparos with Samsung).

Waiting for the Gingerbread update now. Few ROMs are available and reviews are good with better speed + better battery life, but will wait for the official update which is already rolling in EU.

Am facing this issue as well with Exchange 2010. Guess this active sync protocol is not supported correctly in Andriod. The only email application which worked out of the box for me was RoadSync (trial & paid version available).

i have used superoneclick for my galaxy S. works great. can also enable non-market apps. I would recommend superoneclick.

hope this helps.
Tried all possible ways suggested by you, but not able to toot my Optimus one. Even downgraded it to version B from E, still no use.

Any pointers?

Are you sure? Because my Motorola Defy has this feature, although gsmarena says it has no smart dialing.

I don't know whether it is smart dialing or not, but it is very easy to dial a number in my phone - If the name of the person whom I want to call is 'Sunil' then I just need to type in those keys - 78645. With each digit entered, the search results are refined and shown, and it ends up finally in matching names. Works even if the string you want to look up is anywhere in the contact, not necessarily in the First or last name fields.

If you are running Windows 7 running on your laptop, it's quite possible; else you need to have a "rooted" phone to get it to work.
