I am already starting to think my battery is giving up. Any idea what is the warranty on the battery ? Is it 6months or 1yr ?
I'm at the 6th charge/discharge, so I'm thinking that the battery is seasoned and should start delivering. As mentioned earlier, the battery retains charge if kept out of the phone after a charge, meaning that the problem is with the phone.

You will get 6 months warranty for a replacement battery. I went with this one for mine.

The battery that came with the phone tolerated me for 15 months, so you still have some time. Although, you can have a spare if required. I went for these one and two as well. They are compatible with my i9000.

The details are there on the site. If you have an airtel number, you just need to enter the same and click verify and they will send a verification code to your phone, and if you u use the verification code you will get a discount code. visit the site to get a feel.
i had bought my galaxy 9003 from sulekha. had got it within a week.
initially i was panicked when i didnt see any delivery/courier details updated
on their site. but some 3rd or 4th day the details were available. also the customer care was reachable via emails, in my case.
overall, at least u can expect a delayed delivery of products.
There are other (relatively newly launched)sites that quote very attractive prices but which cancel the order as per their convenience.

Just replying to some old posts.
I did a road trip of around 2000 KM and realized that my phone would go off the network in smaller towns. In large cities, I had no issues.
(I am on IDEA network with 3G enabled)

I think the issue was due to the fact that I am a 3G subscriber and not all mobile towers (especially in smaller towns) support 3G.
In those locations, my phone was off the network completely - I could not send/make/ receive messages or calls.
After playing around with all settings and enabling 2G mode, I realized this issue could be due to baseband settings.

Somehow I managed to switch to another baseband, connect via 2G and download baseband switcher app from market.
Then I selected "India, Singapore..." settings and rebooted.
Suddenly I was seeing full network. So it was confirmed that incorrect baseband settings were causing problems for me.

Now, back in my home circle, I have seen that call drops have reduced drastically and I get full network even in my office basement parking (earlier, I was getting no network in basement).

So, Defy users using CM7, please select the correct baseband (should have India in it) and then see the network connectivity difference.

Do you guys know how I cant tell if my Vodafone or any SIM is 64k or not ? I know my Airtel sim is 64k because it says so on it. A search shows a lot of Airtel 64k SIM related airticles and discussions, which leads me to believe that they are the only one's supporting it.

Has anyone bought the SGS2 official 2000 mah extended battery from Samsung?

Is it available in India officially? If yes, any idea at what cost?

Is there an official release of CM9? I think current ones are not proper releases and are quite buggy.

Finally bought the Galaxy note from the mobile store. Cost me 32.6 K, goodies include car charger, 1 year extended warranty, 0% processing/interest fees for conversion to EMI.

I am loving the phone to the T!

The Note's screen is flickering when it is becoming dim. So the transition from bright screen to timed out screen is not smooth, it flickers a lot before its gets dim more like difference between smooth braking and ABS controlled braking. Does it happen to anyone else? I tried all the permutations and combinations involving auto brightness, auto power save etc, nothing works!

It has got to do with the way auto brightness is handled in that ROM. In ROMs like cyanogen, you get a lot of controls to tweak, like widow length, reset threshold, sample interval, hysteresis, custom dim levels and so on.

Got to agree with Clevermax. The Cynogen mod is something different from the standard samsung OS.

My samsung galaxy S feels exactly like my stock S2. I am using Checkrom in S2 and there is a difference.

But CM7 by far is the best rom i have ever used in galaxy s and for somereason the charging speed is also atleast doubled is what i feel.

Been planning, in an unhurried way, for a Defy+: should I wait for the Samsung Xcover to arrive before deciding? Samsung seems to be in the lead these days.

Default Re: Android Thread: Phones / Apps / Mods

Guys need just one clarification: I might buy an android phone in the coming days and I was not sure about transferring contacts from my current phone to an Android device. I am currently using Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic - S60 OS. I also have Nokia PC suite on my system. Can contacts be transferred directly from the SIM? Or do I need to save all the contacts from my current phone to the computer and then transfer the contacts to the new phone? How it works? Any help will be appreciated. Should I post this in the mobiles thread? I thought since I was shifting to android I should post here.
