Any application on Samsung Galaxy S2 which is similar to GPS Data on Nokia E71, that is already present in the phone or in the android market. Thanks

BTW, Univercel is still selling the original Desire and they want 23k for it. They are smoking something pretty good because they are selling the Desire S for 24k. Is this highway robbery or what? They also claimed they could sell me the Defy for 15,700, but they seem to have been out of stock for 2 months. So i mosyed on down to Axis PDA and they said they could do 17300 for the Defy. Croma is even cheaper at like 16 something. Is it just me or is Bangalore really wierd with phone prices? I thought the Defy was supposed to be in the 15k range now .

Its not easy for the "general" public to get it's MEID registered on reliance. You need special sources and programming skills...

Bought it for missus, who was eyeing galaxy ace, which was being sold for the same 15k price tag.
Two days playing around with the phone and bought another one for myself.
Being a power user, are you sure the battery lasts for a day ? Because i have read very negative reviews as far as battery is concerned. One has gone as far as saying that the battery does not last beyond 6 hours.

In which Spice outlet did you buy your phone from ?

Am looking for the same handset. Just enquired in Jayanagar spice outlet. Its out of stock , though he can get one for me in a couple of days.

But he is quoting it @ 16.5k and not 15k as many posts claim here

Ordered Defy accessories of Amzer site, hoping to receive it tomorrow:
Amzer® Micro USB Retractable Data Cable Rs 314.95
Amzer® Mirror Screen Protector with Cleaning Cloth Rs 199.95
Amzer® Silicone Skin Jelly Case - Black Rs 229.95
Amzer® Vertical Slip On Leather Pouch with Ribbon Pull Out Rs 337.95

Got an Unbilled statement for my Airtel connection Rs 1761.10 as of 5th july, it was rs 174 until 2nd july before i got my defy.

An Increase of rs 1500 in two days, unbelievable, wrote to their nodal officer, getting stuck in red tape with them now.

Should i turn off some option to ensure that i do not get bills like this..

They wanted 18.5 something. See i would buy the Defy on letsbuy, but i dont have a Indian CC and my Debit card wont work online. I know about the cash on delivery thing but my schedule fluctuates (Im a doctor), so thats not an option for me. The best price ive found so far is Univercell for 15,700 , but they are saying the Defy is out of stock.

18.5k It was launched at that price. Its selling for a lot lower now. 15.7k is at the univercell store or their online price ? Have you considered Desire and Spice Mi 410 as well ?

15.7k is their store price. Their online price is like 15.1k. Ive considered the Desire as well. The Spice Mi 410 was not really in my list. I like HTC, but i think im getting bored of Sense. I thought i'd pick up the Defy cuz of its ruggedness and stuff.

well the phone is connected to the laptop in between. I haven't measured exact battery life so far.

Got mine in Jayanagar 9th block.
If you are serious about the purchase, PM your no to me.
I'll talk to that guy.
