WHAT MAN! You wouldve gotten it for 13.xx net if u excluded the Bluetooth value. But as long as you're happy, we're happy

4. Call clarity is better than the Galaxy and the Nokia E63 that i had been using in the interim.
5. Setup was uber quick.
Good show. Another point to bash the Defy-haters that turn up ever so often!

You can literally control your phone from the internet. Have it take pics from the front cam and mail em to you!!
Its a waste of time. Serious. I spent Rs 300 on the Theft aware - which is better than this. But if you format a complete ROM - it is deleted. i.e your phone isnt safe if it comes to someone who knows what he's doing

That jabra headset is free. I paid 15999 at croma which I think was pretty good. Bangalore prices are on the higher side mostly anyways. I still can't believe how loud the loudspeaker is . Oh it already passed the "dunk it in a glass of water test " .

Its kind of extortion. MS is telling vendors that it will give them immunity from "potential" lawsuits. But its MS after all, when you have don't have R&D you use the lawyers to mint money. After all, every company needs to maintain its bottomline.

Any bluetooth headset in the world can be used with SGS2. I use my Jabra headset with SGS2 that I used to use with my N95. Works great!

Great device btw!! I upgraded to SGS2 from Nokia N95 and the upgrade was HUGE!!!
Thanks. Unfortunately, the USB connector is out of stock. I would really appreciate is someone has any information on where to source one.

Anyone used Echo Valley? Is it worth the 1.6k pricetag?

Do remember to check the sealing everytime u do that.

I know a certain someone whose son bought one - and boys being boys, used to show it off by dunking it almost every time. And one day the sealing wasn't done rightand glug glug glug ...

Is there anyway we can hear the callers name in an incoming call in SGS2, as it is there in Nokia E71. Addicted to this feature. Thanks.

The htc Incredible 2 uses the same as the current Samsung Family, at least for Epic 4G (Galaxy S) and galaxy 551. So I guess the generic connector may at last be coming in. Please check and get htc if it works. I find the cable on the htc more robust.

Does using Team-BHP android application on SGS2 consume more resources(system-battery, data) or accessing Team-BHP over the browser with mobile mode option consume more resources? Which is better to use? Thanks.
