Yes you can.
But I'm not sure about what happens when you remove your ID. I'm sure the paid AppS get dissociated too.

Thanks a lot sbkumar. I rooted my phone now and have installed Titanium backup also and removed the bogus apps. Lets see how good the phone performs now and how long the battery lasts. Will update tomorrow.

Thanks for clarifying.

I have successfully rooted and installed cm10 jelly bean on my Motorola defy plus and it is so much better than the old ginger bread stock rom. Loving my new 'phone' all over again. The new jb rom is so much smoother and faster than the old stock bloat ware full rom.

I just updated my Galaxy S2 to the official JB. Although the response is much smoother and 'fluid', battery life has gone down considerably.

The phone suddenly and with no apparent reason keeps toggling between "Aeroplane" mode and refuses to come of it!! The phone has stopped catching any signals (radio issues?). We have tried with different SIMs and networks, nothing works. I believe the complete phone "status" section including IMEI etc is empty!

Samsung service centres at Marathahalli have refused to do anything about it.
I have heard this issue before with a friend's Galaxy S. I don't know what the issue was but they replaced the 'motherboard' and charged around 5k. Jayanagar Samsung service center.

How can Samsung guys not do anything about it? I think you should take them to task. Escalate about them to Samsung.

No it doesn't. Once the app is downloaded it doesn't matter from which account it was downloaded. It keeps working like normal app even if you remove the account.

Surprised to see SII Plus available at the Samsung store for 23k !! I thought it wasn't launched or atleast there was no press release as such.
It isn't a bad option for someone who doesn't like the big screen of the Grand!

What is the basic difference between the S2 and S2 Plus?

Updated gapps to latest (for 4.2) b it is crashing most of the time. How is it behaving in your phones with 4.2?

Thanks blue_pulsar.

This is a Galaxy Nexus bought from Google Play store, so not surprisingly Samsung refuses to service it. And I cant send the phone back to US to have Google look at it!
This is the reason why I would be needing local technicians in Bangalore who could possibly offer a solution.

I don't want to disappoint you but the chances of getting your Galaxy Nexus repaired in India are very less. I had a Galaxy Nexus which had gone kaput and the samsung service centers in trivandrum as well as in Chennai could not repair it. They didn't have a motherboard to replace.

So I have given up the hope of repairing it.

My new beast is coming in a couple of days! No Samsung in my life from now on! They are super plasticky and aren't reliable.

Had a play with the so called speed demon - Note II - and I was not at all impressed. Build quality was pathetic and the phone isn't that fast as claimed. The owner of the phone told me the same thing. He had to accept it as a replacement for his faulty Note I.

That's the reason why I'm delaying the purchase of Nexus 4. The specs are good, the price is great, but I'm not sure whether I can use it for 2+ years without damaging the rear glass. Looking at one x now, seems good after the the price drop. Also, I'm happy with HTC, the current one is working great even after 2 years.

Will keep the suspense for now, Just some keywords - Super IPS LCD2 with an impressive Ppi and contrast ratio (read 'Awesome display'), Tegra 3, Quad core, excellent build quality. :-)

It was the beast a short while back, now there are slightly better ones on the top of the price line. But that hasn't reduced the 'beast-ness' of this one in any manner!

Your thinking is in the right direction I'd say!
2 Years? That's nothing. My HTC Desire has survived 2 years of use by me, and another year of super rough usage by wifey! Still going strong.

@ Clevermax. I think I have guessed it. It is HTC One X Plus. Am I right?

That sounds like HTC ONE X+. I think these days HTC is making beasts after beasts. Unfortunately company is not doing good at all. Hope their sales improve one day.
