  1. I have two Jio SIMs, one each in both my phones. One is an htc Desire 628 and the second a Moto X Play. Both are non-Volte. In both phones Jio is SIM2. We have far fewere outages in the htc than in the Moto. However, the frequency has dropped. Yesterday evening, while talking to a friend, all of a sudden the Jio signal vanished on by Moto. After a few minutes I was able to reconnect. No data or voice connection. I found the signal level quite high. So must have been a software bug. Then I tried using by Voda connection. Than was also u/s, and was not connecting on voice. I switched off the Jio and only then could I use the Voda. after about 45 minutes Jio was working on Data but not on voice. On the htc there was only a very short term signal drop, but the link again took a long time to come back. Voice was restored on both only after an hour and a half. I suspect a system crash and taking some time to get back. First data was restored, and voice took another hour or so..
  2. JIO SIM without LYF handset

    Billing procedure will be interesting as all talk shows up as data in the accounting. How will they separate. More likely Rs x get you y MB.
  3. A friend ported his VIP nos from Vodafone and BSNL to Jio transparently. No sweat.
  4. JIO SIM without LYF handset

    I beg to disagree. But for the loss of signal the experience has been excellent. Even that is reducing with time. The Web info can be dodgy since it says that the htc Desire 628 is Volte while it is not. I would go for the htc 10 but for the non-availability of a dual SIM on that.
  5. JIO SIM without LYF handset

    I am coming back after ages since I have been off Reliance for over two years. I have taken two Jio SIMs which I have installed in my Moto X Style, and htc Desire 628, both are non VoLTE. While the Desire is working fine, I have issues with signal drop on my Moto. Also, the Moto seems to be having the battery for breakfast. Barely lasts for twelve hours The Desire is giving us about a day. I find on the web that the 628 is Volte, but do not see a trace of that anywhere, incl the APP to check.
  6. I found that the Sprint htc One M7 OTA for Lollipop is now shipping. Did a check for updates and found it 815.56MB (Ver6.16.151.2) available for download. I have just initiated the download. Fingers (and toes) crossed.
  7. Recommend Men’s Shaving System

    Got my HQ9 cutters from Amazon.com today. Being US sourced Norelco was bigger the Philips on the box. Direct drop in replacement. The fine print says that the life is two years (ideal one year). Everything was fine, except for the DTDC chap who never rang the bell and took an ack. He just threw the packet in the driveway and vanished at some time. Fortunately, we were going somewhere and found and picked it up. Typical DTDC behaviour.
  8. Recommend Men’s Shaving System

    My own Philips 8-series electric shaver was getting a bit old and the cutters were getting a bit blunt. After over four years I was thinking of buying a new one, since the US brand is Norelco, with a totally different model line up, so there was no hope for cutters from there. Then my son docanurag discovered that cutters/heads were available on amazon.com, with the cutter number as identification. The cutter nos are identical in Philips and Norelco. So I have managed to order a set of three cutters for under $40 (delivered) from amazon.com. In my shaver the model and cutter information is available under the clipper.
  9. Sprint HTC One M7 Lollipop now available for OTA

    I san the refresh. Amazing number of htc updates were installed. i think the total updates were in excess of 100MB.
  10. Sprint HTC One M7 Lollipop now available for OTA

    Got a message about software update 6.23.651.6. The download was 312.0MB. Install went ultra smooth, all data and settings preserved. Update install took about 30 minutes.
  11. Deposit Refund After MNP?

    He did get it on Friday, but the RCom dealer kept calling me. I saw the deposit from HDFC of ₹3230.96 in my SBI account right now, It was not there an hour ago! So the RCom saga is over, after just over a year. Now to Bhai Saheb Nahin Lagega aka BSNL. I had ported out three months earlier than from RCom,
  12. Sprint HTC One M7 Lollipop now available for OTA

    Now with M9 out fun starts. 20MB rear camera, 128GB uSD, etc. So I guess this is the last update we got for the M7.
  13. Deposit Refund After MNP?

    I was an original DAPO so there is a 3000 deposit.
  14. Deposit Refund After MNP?

    Coincidence or otherwise I got a call from RCom. He wanted me to go to their local dealer at some odd location 14km away to collect the cheque. He claimed that the cheque was expiring on the 4th March. So they must have been sleeping on it. Then today we again got a call, my wife told him then how come March 4. He claimed that the envelope sent through a courier was mis-addressed. Now we suffer for their fault. I have asked my mobile dealer to get the cheque for me, and deposit in the SBI IIT kanpur branch. Let us see?
  15. Sprint HTC One M7 Lollipop now available for OTA

    Just get the update and install. Nothing more. I am on GSM on a standard unlocked unit (from hetal).
  16. May 03, 2015 is the new date. Also, I think it implies the end of Roaming as we know it. True ONE INDIA! On good thing that Sibal did.
  17. Sprint HTC One M7 Lollipop now available for OTA

    @gaurav9755; Exactly what I had. No issues.
  18. Deposit Refund After MNP?

    Neither RCom nor BSNL did in my case.
  19. Switch to CDMA ?

    Just updated my Sprint htc One (CDMA + CGSM) to Lollipop. Went Uber smooth, even though I am no longer on CDMA. When I updated to kitkat it reset defaults to CDMA, nothing like that here.

  20. Sprint HTC One M7 Lollipop now available for OTA

    Yes, went butter smooth. Much better than to Kitkat. I had to check that the update really happened. Battery life is much better. ................Added............. I am now on GSM and needed to do zilch. At most you may have to change data mode to GSM/UMTS again to work in GSM.
  21. I was a loyal R-CDMA customer from its inception (DAPO days). Finally I ported out the Vodafone in February last year. Why - poor stability (too many call drops) and loss of data connectivity for over four months. Fortunately, I had an htc one (dual CDMA and GSM) from Hetal, so managed to do it without changing my handset. My bill is probably up by about ₹70-100 per month but at least it works. dKaile told me that he had a loss of data on his wife's phone, and had to get the RCom backend to intervene.
  22. Handset Names Rebranded

    Why has this thread fallen silent?
  23. I am sure many of us travel abroad for short trips. Even if we have to get roaming on our mobiles (the changes are CRAZY we may still wish to have local mobiles: In the US getting a SIM/CDMA connection takes ages, so kids take a SIM from India. In the Gulf the shortest duration of a prepaid is One Year, so for a short trip taking a SIM from here makes sense. In the Gulf (at least Dubai) data charges can be crazy. Matrix advised me that GPRS may be as much as $10/MB! Also, most hotels charge AED40 per hour (120 per day) for wireless connectivity. Some malls, and airport do have free connectivity. I took a Matrix SIM at Rs.500 (or rather 550 with taxes) with a 10 day validity and 500MB talk/sms time. The SIM was on du and worked instantly. Of course make sure you switch off all data services before landing else you inadvertently get fleeced. I will like others to post about alternate channels, experiences.
  24. I ported my BSNL in November and just ported the Reliance CDMA. Both are to Vodafone (UPE). Why Voda - they ar on 900MHz and have 3G in UPE (the others are BSNL and Aircel). Voda (or rather Hutch) and (now defunct) Usha were the first in UP and Voda has a god network. I am waiting for National Single No to come, then I will form a family CUG with my daughter and family in Kolkata.
  25. Have ported from Reliance CDMA to Vodafone GSM today. Reason is that I was not getting data for over three months. Then dkaile tod me that old DAPO customers were specially blessed. Then my son docanurag reminded me that he also had similar issues. By then the request was in. So the port happened today. dkaile told me that I should change the data settings to GSM/UMTS. The port did take about 1-1/2 hours. This was a Hetal phone and is now a pucca GSM unit. Thanks dhiraj & hetal.
