Story of my Android Migration – Thanks to Windows 6.1!

Last week, one of the frustrating weeks of this year for me.  I got numerous problems with my windows based biz phone. I got excellent review for that product, which made me to buy that. After buying and installing some apps, I got into several troubles. Installation of some applications failing with permission issue. Googling directed me to change some registry value, for that they told me an application similar to regedit. Installation of that apps also getting failed because of same permission issue. 🙂

whenever I used to browse, the head-ache starts. The phone will hang for ever. you will see key pad lights glowing, display switched off. No other option except pulling the battery out and reboot it.

Both booting and shut down option is too long. after very few apps installation, the phone becomes sluggish. aahhh

Last few days became nightmare for me. even after hard resetting, it keeps on hanging. Clearing temp files, cookies din’t help me much.

Consultation at service point is discouraging. They can work on this reboot issue. But nothing to do it with speed because, all windows phones are like that only 😦

I cant keep this growing. I looked for alternative options. If you ask me the OS, I have no choices other than Android. Regarding the brand, I am much interested to test HTC this time. after reading the reviews, specs finally I had three options before me

HTC wildfire – Full Touch – Android 2.1 – 528 MHz

HTC legend – Full Touch – Android 2.1 – 600 Mhz

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro – Semi Touch & Qwerty – Android 1.6 upgradable – 600 MHz

I left with no option for Qwerty with Android in HTC. I am not looking for more fun. The features of media player or FM radio may not convince me. My main concerns were speed, apps, mails & IMs while moving.

Finally it’s Xperia X10 mini!

Is this a success story or failure story? 😦

Hard Reset in Samsung Omnia Pro B7320!

This is an interesting like I came across! http://www.pspmyspace.com/omnia/2008/09/how-to-hard-res.html

My omnia hangs now and then for the past few days. Dont know why. I decided to do one hard reset once. I am okay with the loss as Google Sync takes care of all my contacts and mails.

There are couple ways mentioned in the page I quoted above! I tried the second one

*2767*3855#

Typing the above will reset the phone, and restart it couple of times to ensure the factory settings.. (I doubt, I saw some internet profiles, menu items were still there!!!)

Connecting to GPRS or 3G from Vista with Samsung Omnia – HowTo

This may be a nice event yesterday, when I need to couple my mobile with Vista based laptop. Here comes a howto!

  1. Power on your laptop and login. make sure that it is not connected to internet.
  2. Power on your omnia pro and connect it with laptop (I used USB)
  3. In the main menu of your mobile, choose Internet Sharing
  4. You will get internet sharing window, select USB as your PC Connection and the GPRS/3G profile under network connection
  5. Press Connect!

Thats all!

I am able to reach 130~150 Kbps with BSNL EDGE and 15 to 25 Kbps (!!!) with BSNL GPRS connection. Amazing upto 2.8 Mbps with 3G network!
