If my eyes aren't playing tricks and that button is indeed missing, What technical wizardy is needed to provide that option, i wonder.

More importantly how do i STOP a song being played currently. Dont ask me to PAUSE it.
I have also never seen a stop button in winamp.

A pause is equivalant to stop in software terms. I have also not seen a stop button in ipod which I saw recently. I normally use pause for stop, and if you really want to exit the application then i use task manager and exit. Is there a better way to exit and stop in winamp? Me too looking for it for quite some time.

My Wife's 3 year old Sony Ericsson w595 has given up the ghost. Most keys on the phone have stopped working. I am now looking out for a new phone. The criteria is to be able to make video calls through 3G network. Can some of the gurus here suggest some good options?

There is no setting under the wireless options to disable this. Yes it happens with use of data connection. And from what I could understand reading google is that BB users aslo face similar problems.

Converting to other plans is last resort option.

All Nokia smartphones with front cam can do video calls.
If in android, all Samsung Galaxies with a front cam can do video calls over 3G.

It may be, but it is not same as Stop in usability terms. Stop should stop playback and seek to the beginning of file. Pause just pauses the playback and stays there.

What are the must-have apps/games for someone with a Galaxy Tab? Its performed exceptionally well for any/every game & app that I've downloaded till now but I'd like some suggestions considering I've got a really big screen coupled with a great processor, you know some games/apps that really let me enjoy this fine piece.

If you don't want to throw away the Walkman phone, I guess the keys have stopped working because the flex cable inside the slider has got cut. I had replaced it for 750/- from the authorized service center for my W705.

What I meant to say was, in my case the pop up comes only when I DISABLE the data connection manually. So in a say it may come only once it twice depending when I turn it off. I usually don't keep data enables during night.

I can't find the option to disable the notification in my GB from as well.

Can anybody comment on the camera of the Neo V and Ray? Which one is better? Not concerned about the Pixels (in which case Ray wins with its 8 MP)... more concerned about picture quality. Also does the Exmor sensor in Ray really make a difference?

Honestly, I don't remember whether the box was sealed, but when I spoke to the ebay seller before purchase he mentioned that they unlock the phones (and so have to open the box). However, I do remember that the content of the box looked factory packed (i.e. no sign of anyone having opened any of the items earlier). There are no indications of where the phone is imported from either.

I was ready to go with dealer warranty because in the case of the Neo V there was a huge difference between prices (13.9k ebay versus 17.5k retail).

For those of you who can't find stocks of i9100 since the market is flooded with i9100G, check out Reliance Digital in your city. They are selling the i9100 for 28,xxx.
