Is there any short cut to activate facebook on this 299 plan ?
Vodafone has a 499 plan where in google maps and stuff will work, this is confirmed by Vodafone customer care.

Don't they have an annual advance rental plan? Ask customer service as they don't advertise these plans. I got my Advance Rental Plan on Airtel at Rs. 6,999/- (Unlimited BIS) inclusive of service tax. It works out to around Rs. 583 p.m. which is wayyy cheaper compared to 899 + Service Tax plan i was on.

What i meant was, it was a fresh piece with full soft wrap packing and all and we had the pleasure of ripping the package open. Unlocked as in Network unlocked and not tied to any service provider.

The buyer was very happy since she is planning to use this only as a phone for the time being, and purchased since she damaged her old phone. Now this piece is originally for her friend, who is bringing her an iPhone and who in turn wanted to buy a BB in December while relocating to India.

All khush with the deal

Definitely will mention but wait for couple of hours please, since i forgot the name and she is in a meeting (bill, bag all are with her in another building).

Its a new shop/chain with orange board???. Located exactly where the Airtel office was earlier in Koramangala, on the Raheja arcade road. We were on our way to the Airtel dealer 3 shops away by walk, when i saw the deal placard at the door!

Asked her why dont we check this out before Airtel? and she said why not. But i guess it worked out well, in and out in 10 mts after doing a trial call. He offered BB connection which we have to get back. Both 299 and 899 plans he explained. We checked out 8520 but the moment my friends eyes fell on 8900 she was like WOW! No comparison, what a mistake it would have been etc LOL WOMEN!

Dont know if its festival offer, but according to the guy at the counter he has managed to sell some 18 pieces since yday and has run out of discount coupons, which he ensured us by tomorrow.

Just posting what I found, hope it may help people struggling with the same scenario.

Finally found a way out for connecting the bluetooth and transferring media from other mobiles to BB STORM. Sending media, contacts etc from BB STORM to other paired devices are effortless, only recieving was a major constraint.

In Storm, you have to...

Select the Media App
Music Option (for music, for Video you have to select Video)
Menu Button
Select Recieve Using Bluetooth

After this a message will appear

...."File Transfer, waiting for connection".

Now you can send your media from a paired device..

Wondering, is it the same way with other BB models?..
