1. Changes to the Messenger Interface, looks good.
2. In the Downloads folder, i have a new icon "Files" - Yes you can now access files like a File Manager.
3. New Clock Options
4. Overall lots of changes/additions in Options for each application.

Need a Blackberry. Two constraints.

1. Budget - 16K max
2. Need with bill as I have to expense it.

8310 looks good. However in Bangalore I've been quoted right from 18K to 24K. However saw the same for 15.5K on eBay. A little bit hesitant to get it online.

Any place in Bangalore where I can get the 8310 for a good deal with bill? I saw a few posts where folks had got it for 13K or so. That sounds really good, but can't find out anyone who sells for that price in Bangalore.

Checked out the usual suspects. Airtel (20K), Sangeetha(18K), Univercell (24K), Mobile Store (21K) and other normal shops who quote around 19 - 20K.

One guy was willing to give me one for 14K if I buy 5 !!!

Help please.

Hi!

The price quoted by Sangeetha seems to be fine, provided you get one year Manufacturer's Warranty. Also check whether it is locked or unlocked. Post your PIN soon!

Sent a PM to you.

Ten days after the "push-up exercise", not a single display of SOS nor red network bars on my phone. Just want to update everyone. Simple solutions for free !!

Only one advice -- please do not take 500KB monthly plan.

It is a big time trap as I suffered once and monthly bill came 7000 INR.

Personally I prefer Vodafone Service over Airtel. I suffered with Airtel as agents most of time do not know what to do.

Thanks for the short review of 5.0. Do you think it is worth to move over to this new version? Also, it would help if you can provide a download link of this version.

Not if you use either facebook, MSN or google talk. None of these work on this version. I would wait for 120 to leak!
