Thanks for the tip. I just realised, that I've stated the inverse, of what happens. Apps I download, go into the Internal storage [as it should] and media I add [books, audio] goes into the Internal SD card [I just figured out because I loaded the phone with a few songs].

So, there is no problem then. Apologies for not investigating properly and jumping the gun. Still, thanks.

Some power sellers even go out of the way to please you so that you give them 5x 5* rating.

But, cases like yours do happen. I also have faced deadbeat sellers who refused to pay the return shipping charges, even after knowingly shipping a 'Chalta Hai na sir' product.

But, since Happy Roadie paid thru cheque, I doubt paisa pay would come to the rescue. He must scan the bank transaction proof etc to raise the defective item case on Ebay.
Yeah, there are rogue sellers and that can be guessed. But what I couldn't believe or accept is the level Ebay stooped to, to cancel a claim and probably favour a seller [which I am unable to establish]. Its Ebay's handling of claim that I'm more worried about, than sellers. That Paisapay guarantee, for me now, holds no assurance of a safe and/or peaceful buying experience.

I had a very good experience with Paisa pay. There were two instances when I wanted my refunds and eBay did that after checking with me all the details. So there could be few bad cases but there are some good examples as well. In my case it worked both times.

Yes I own a A90S and voice clarity is good. At least as good as Nokia N82. Also I suggest not to update the google maps when play store gives you option. I believe the latest 6.14.1 version has issues in GPS fix. PM me if you need any further details.

Thanks man. Overall phone is good. My fiancee can hear me well but I am not able to hear her properly. Don't know why. It happens only with that phone.

Haven't yet tried the maps but I had read that there was an update to fix the GPS.

My phone has FINALLY been able to get a taste of ICS, via Cyanogenmod 9.1.

Vanilla Android is brilliant!!

I must say, the OS runs buttery smooth, even on the lowly 600MHz processor. Just goes to show how much resources the Sense UI was consuming.

And this is the best bit - Oh yeah, 2GB internal memory on a phone which had only 150MB when I bought it!!

Special thanks to BHPians clevermax and phamilyman for showing me how to achieve this.

Have noticed a definite improvement in battery life, but it's too early to say for sure.
Will calibrate the battery today and will post the results.

Terribly Off-Topic, but could not resist.

You mean to say that such technology really exists now. If this applies to wives and girlfriends too this might be the tech show piece of the year.

Wi-fi detection and getting it on is a 1 minute affair. What trouble are you facing with it? If you could elaborate, experts could try helping.

Congrats on a wise buy, hope it serves you (and me and many others who've bought it] well.

Ummm.. Not sure why. I didn't face such an issue and I'm not technically sound to guess what it could be. Try android forums [xda, slatedroid, etc.] and you might get help.

In any case, our resident experts will be here in no time, giving you the perfect resolution. Hold on..

Any Defy users who have upgraded to the 3500 mAh battery?
Is it worth it? If yes, please suggest a good source for the same?
Else, if you have gone for the original Defy 1500 mAh battery, do provide indicative pricing.

I Got one from DHGate.com, this was about an year back. They ship even a single piece to India, but takes more than 15days. Costs around 700 odd bucks at that time. 0-99% works like normal Defy Battery. Once it reaches 1% it goes on for some more time.

Pros
- Extra Juice

Cons
- Bulky
- Makes your Defy look ugly
- Cannot accurately predict when your Battery is gonna run out!!

I do not use it usually, I use my Defy Battery everyday. Whenever i go out, i keep this as backup. You can get atleast 3-4hrs of extra time. I have never really tried to "test" it out.

2400mAh with back door for 1999/- & standard 1200mAh is 1499/-. This looks expensive though..
