didn't feel like downgrading...
dude visit xda again. these fellas are releasing Defy custom ROMs with replacement kernels - irrespective of the base Froyo ROM. see if the milestone devs have jumped the curve or not!!

@sgiitk Saab. in that context the defyis unbreakable!! I've made too many mistakes but its cleanly recovered each time!

but hold on. he has nowhere mentioned flashing a custom ROM!

shashank : the operative word is predictive not intelligent. its a pain surely

You mean immiediatly after transferring the contact?

Check which google account you are associating the contact to. And enable that google account under, Contact -> Display Options -> "Choose contacts to display". This will show various groups in contact of gmail account. Try enabling all groups and see if they show the contact.

Regarding predictive word selection, by default it adds the space, hence if you add another space, it considers it as end of the statement and adds period! Isn't that good? If you thinking that on selecting word, its only word gets selected, then you should need to get used to new keyboard!

Any clue where one can download "Intelligent software PCStudio 3.1" for SGS2 ?

I suppose it's not yet available on the web ?

Need help in finalizing my next phone. Have a budget of around 30-35K INR. Which would be the best choice among iPhone4, Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC Sensation? Currently using Nokia E71. Mostly, I'm looking for an all-rounder kind of phone.
--Thanks in advance.

Hmm.. I run Gingerbread (2.3.3) on my Desire.
Heard that HTC is actually getting Gingerbread on Desires. (Read on engadget)

You are asking should I buy the DBS or the Ferrari or the Murcie!!!

Take a test drive man and go with what your heart says! All three are high-end phones and worthy upgrade to E71 (though would u feel full comfortable with switching to touch screen from a Qwerty?)

Thanks for your quick reply. Well, I'll slightly alter my question. Is it better to go for iPhone or not? If yes, should I go for iPhone 4 now or wait for the next version of the iphone to be released in Sep 2011. If Not, choice is between SGS2 and HTC Sensation. Thanks.

It is like deciding between a slightly modifiable Petrol and highly modifiable Diesel car.

If you want an allrounder then I don't think it will be iPhone. If you go for android you can use swype instead of typing which is a pain, not sure whether swype is available for iPhone. No flash support in iPhones, tons of applications, though android market is improving a lot now. another drawback in iphone is that it doesn't have Widgets.

If it is Samsung or HTC, HTC is a very good phone for tweaking and customization as lot of things are available in XDA compared to other phones. One drawback is the picture quality with LCD vs AMOLED with Samsung and HTC phones are heavy.

Create a weightage on what you will be using and based on that take a decision.

I have a HTC HD2 with Windows mobile, but I have ported Android in it with the help of XDA members. I suggest you to go for HTC/Samsung unless you want to have iPhone as a status symbol.

They can price them higher, but does not mean a buyer should be buying unless that premium price translates to premium quality and/or features/etc. So question is if the Wildfire S premium price is justified. Does not look like it. The very least they should have done is to give a 1500 mAh battery. Not a very premium move, eh?

And bum batter? its supposed to be a original "premium" HTC battery. Yes, I know you mean it might be a one off bad piece, but then media reviews are... well media reviews... what kind of battery life are users getting in real life? Is anybody getting 2 days???

Guys should i accept the Repaired Mobile or should i ask them for a New Replacement?
In my case they offered a full refund after 5 months. Apparently the handsets in the market are still those which have the dust problem. Read my post here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/gadget...ml#post2404663 (The Mobile Phone Thread - Queries, decisions, discussions all here)

My friend is looking for his first android phone. Budget is 15K and it should have a good camera. Shortlisted Motorola Defy (14.5K after discount @ letsbuy.com).

Is it a good option and deal?
