  1. Need Suggestions - CDMA zero plan

    I don't think this plan is available on GSM any longer. Relaince pulled it off couple of months back. Gonna check the speed on CDMA and then I might just go for it.
  2. Xiaomi MI 3

    MIUI is a massive RAM hog. My cousin got this phone recently so I was able to get my hands on it for a while. The highest amount of available RAM I saw on it was around 400 MB. I know it would be different for different people depending upon the number of apps installed and other things. But no matter how many times I closed all the running apps I couldn't go beyond 400 MB. I am not bad mouthing Xiaomi, its just MIUI that's at fault here. Another noticeable drawback is the camera which It is sub par at best. I will update this post again if I get my hands on it again.
  3. I saw the commercials for MTS Ultra and Tata Photon Max and at first it seemed to me that they are using Rev. B but now I am a bit confused. Tata Photon Max(with inbuilt WiFi) is giving a maximum down rate of 6.2 Mbps, exactly double of Rev. A while MTS Ultra is somewhere around 9.8 Mbps. As far as I know Rev B is supposed to provide 14.7 Mbps down rate. So what kind of technology are these two using? And will Reliance follow suit?
  4. Please suggest a Girl's phone (GSM)

    That's different Motorola you are talking about. There is a difference between Motorola Mobility(owned by Google) and Motorola Solutions(which develops high security devices).
  5. Death of HDD

    You are missing one point here. Pen Drives\Mermory Cards\SSDs have limited number of read\write cycles. After that they just die, don't even develop bad sectors. Normally, I think, you can read\write a million times approximately. It may sound a lot but when you are consistently downloading stuff, which requires simultaneous read-write, then your device won't last long
  6. Will it switch to RCDMA automatically in case GSM drops down really low?
  7. 2G, 3G and now 4G!

    The best thing a user will experience when moving from 3G to 4G is the latency drop. Before 4G LTE was launched, it was believed that it would give latency comparable to ~5m. Practically you can get around 60ms average where in 3G you get above 100ms in same conditions. This will depend on number of users, tower distance.... blah,blah,blah. But overall the latency drop is noticeable. The speed gain is prominent too but since it is a wireless system so sustaining speed is rather difficult. Not gonna give figures here cause again they are dependent on lot of factors plus the ISP cap speed too. Overall lower latency, better speed. I hope you get the point. Do I need to summarise 2G->3G too?
  8. iPhone's call quality is really great but the only one that will fall into your budget is iPhone 4. Most people prefer to buy current gen Android rather than buying two gen old iPhone. Beyond that its personal preference. I knew about GN2's signal strength but I didn't recommend it knowing that it wouldn't fall into your budget. There are phones out there carrying far better radio than GN2 but recommending you those won't do you any good cause they are really expensive. I would suggest you to stick with Droid Razr series, I suppose its M that is making news. You can also go for iPhone 4 but again, think carefully before making such a decision. One more thing, ask around about GSIII signal strength and call quality. Don't know much about it, maybe it is comparable to GN2. A used one will fall into your budget too.
  9. Agreed. Motorola has the best radios among all smartphones. So signal strength won't be a issue. For voice clarity buy a phone with secondary noise cancellation mic. I suppose both Photon and Bionic fit your budget. Edit: Misread your post. I thought your budget was 10k-12k. If you can go up to 20K then I think you can get something from Droid Razr series too.
  10. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    When you say Stock ROM, which version does that mean? As far as programming Sprint Version is concerned you don't necessarily need FC12 radio. I programmed mine on FH05 radio. For using 1X and EVDO you will need FC12, but you shouldn't be thinking about that right now. Do the basic programming for Voice and Text first and then think about Internet.
  11. Voice over 2.3 GHz spectrum is not a great idea. Many people prefer CDMA because of signal strength and voice quality and both are lost once we move to such a high frequency. I would rather prefer them to launch LTE alongside our normal CDMA and GSM network like Verizon\Sprint and At&T respectively.
  12. There is a app called Sprint Diagnostics specially developed for toroplus(Sprint Gnex). With this you can read MSL\SPC and do a whole lotta more things like write PRL(only thing I can remember from the top of my head) and more. Just make sure it works with your build. Its the best app if you like to falsh PRL on the go, MSL reading is its secondary function.
  13. EVDO blackout in majority of Delhi?

    I am getting 2-3 signal bars on an average for the past four-five days when at home. Outside it is worse. I used to get full signal before. Wonder if there is something wrong. Don't have time to lodge complaints or talk to CC. I hope it gets sorted out soon.
  14. Bricked Samsung Epic 4G D-700

    What do you mean by not starting in any mode? If it means that it is not starting at all then it is bricked, hard bricked. You have messed up the bootloader and you need to get it fixed using the JTAG procedure. For future reference, don't forget to compare the md5 of downloaded and source pit file. It is the culprit in most cases. The whole repartitioning procedure is kind of complex. Here is the link to the specific JTAG thread http://www.rimweb.in/forums/topic/35270-jtag-bring-back-hard-bricked-boot-dead-phones/
  15. Please Suggest Reliance CDMA QWERT Smartphone

    Epic 4G is not that thick compared to the other phones the OP has listed. 0.02 inch difference isn't that much when you are getting nearly double the specs. If weight is the issue then I suppose you can go for others.
  16. Please Suggest Reliance CDMA QWERT Smartphone

    ^These two are GSM devices but I am not too sure. Maybe CDMA version is available too. When it comes too Qwerty smartphone then Epic 4G rules in this budget. I don't know what you have against Slider Phones but as far as my understanding go, they are pretty neat. You get a big screen plus a great full keyboard.
  17. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    Dear Funky ace , i am thinking to move back to 4.1.1 again then try to update via ota and then want to check will GA02 work with evdo or not . Plz tell me from where i can get complete images to again reload 4.1.1 via fastboot or odin . downloded complete image from google ( https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/imageshttps://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images ) is it okay to use this image via odin or there are some other images also ( for reliance ) Dear funky ace and all others who are using EVDO in GA02 radio , plz go in to settings => about phone => status and check mobile network type , is it cdma 1x or cdma revision r6 ( or something link that ) plz help If FC12 is working fine for you then no need to go back to 4.1.2 and then trying to get 4.2.1 OTA. GA02 is a improvement but that doesn't mean FC12 was a failure. Like I said, if it works then keep it. Chances are that going through all the troublesome methods of downgrading and then upgrading won't change a thing. Btw, the link didn't worked. If you are going to downgrade then make sure it is Sprint's ROM and not Verizons or GSM. You might end up bricking your phone if you flash wrong ROM.
  18. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    manojsadhCongrats! You finally got 4.2.1 I am using EVDO over GA02 without any issues. I don't know why it is not wokring for you guys. Do you get 3G signal(3G written on top of signal bar) when you use GA02 or just 1X?
  19. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    Certainly. But I would suggest you to install Team Win Recovery Project (or TWRP) recovery instead of ClockworkMod. Nowadays, It is the best recovery hands down. It is fully touch recovery. No more volume rocker stuff. How to do it? Simple. Just go to Play Store and install GooManager. In the upper right are the 3 vertical menu buttons - press it, and select “Install OpenRecoveryScript”. Agree to all the scary warnings it throws at you: it will ask a final time if you want to flash TWRP (or whatever newer version there is). Agree and let it do its thing... the phone may or may not reboot. You are done. Now reboot into recovery and install your 4.2.1 stock. Don't forget to clear data, cache and dalvik cache and system. And then click Install and select your zip. If Gapps is not bundled in your stock ROM then you would need to Install that too. How you find that out? Check when your phone boots. If there are google service like gmail and play store available then you don't need Gapps otherwise you do. You would need Jelly Bean 4.2.1 Gapps like this http://d-h.st/8Ax Don't need to download it right now. If Google services are not present then download it. But as far as I know stock contains Gapps since it is 'STOCK'. If you want to back up apps before installing ROM then use Titanium Backup but I don't think you would need that since you just factory reseted your device. If you want to back up text then use the application called MyPhoneExplorer on your PC and back up using it. It is really handy. Then again I don't think you would need that since you just factory reseted your device. Contacts are automatically back uped on your gmail account if you have registered one on your phone. That's all. Happy flashing.
  20. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    Its nice to know that I am among those 1% EVDO is working fine on GA02 without any issues. Actually it works on every radio but FC12 and GA02 don't need tweaking. I am no guru but I am addicted to helping people in need. First of all factory resetting won't unroot the phone. Okay here is what you need to do. Visit this thread first of all. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1614922 It has all the instructions but don't do anything just yet. 1. Now what you need to do is download FH05 radio present here https://www.dropbox.com/s/7tlko9fd4k9n9sj/toroplus_full_radios-FH05.zip I hope the link works. Use the instructions about installing radio from the thread. 2. Unroot the phone. Again instructions in the thread. Restart and now you must be seeing the update available. Do that an you are on 4.2.1 If you are still facing some trouble then visit this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2134801 And don't worry. Updating won't remove your Reliance settings. They are saved on separate block of memory. You can always flash the stock ROM with Odin or fastboot but as I said before OTA has its charm. P.S.: If you are on registered on XDA then don't forget to like QBking's post. You are quite lucky. I haven't seen anyone updating successfully from FC12 radio OTA.
  21. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    Although you didn't asked me, I think I should help you. For OTA update you need following three things: 1. Your bootloader should be locked 2. You should be running unrooted stock ROM. 3. You sould be on FH05 radio. Before somebody quotes me over the third point I would like to excalim that some people running earlier radios like FC12 are facing problems while trying to update OTA. You can always flash the stock 4.2.1 ROM by using Odin or from recovery but OTA is much more easier and fun to do.
  22. Jtag - Bring Back Hard Bricked Boot Dead Phones

    Ofcourse I am aware of you. I am supposed to get my Charge unbricked from you as soon as I can get time. @all: Kanishk is one the dependable people considering the JTAG services. He is much better than those Manish Market people who are known to rob the phone of their genuine parts. If you have a bricked phone then do try his service.
  23. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    Yes, Photosphere is really cool. Or maybe it is because of the wait. As far as I have seen, GA02 is a great improvement over other radios. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. On a side note: I have noticed that Toroplus(Sprint Galaxy Nexus) is the least dev favorite Galaxy Nexus. Makes you wonder why?
  24. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    Do it manualy if it is not happening automatically OTA. I haven't tried it myself cause I am running custom ROM which suits me better than stock.
  25. Reliance CDMA on Sprint Galaxy Nexus LTE

    Yes Sprint has launched 4.2.1 for Galaxy Nexus. @all: The recent cdma radio(GA02) is really nice. It is giving better connectivity and is battery friendly too(as long as you keep EVDO off when not using). I think it is better than all radios from before like FC12, FD02, FG01 and FH05.
