  1. Have one to sell? Sell it yourself ORANGE SAN DIEGO AZ210A (XOLO x900) . I know its probably not worth the trouble with having to dig out the soldering iron etc, but I would still like to give it a go. The original battery dimensions are... 4mm x 58mm x 53mm.
  2. So its much as I expected, doable if you can find a new battery and I cant see Orange having one. I think in future I will not buy another phone with a non-replaceable battery. If your on a contract its probably not a problem as you just request a replacement, but I am a PAYG user so not very practical. Its a shame to bin it just for the sake of a new battery and not very eco friendly. Having said that, I have just noticed eBay selling a Universal 6000 Mah Blue External Battery Power Bank Charger for the Orange San Diego, £25 with free delivery Don't really want to lug an external battery pack around, not very practical so its not for me.
  3. My San Diego was new in October 2012 and has been completely trouble free but the battery is now showing signs of weakness. A lot depends on how its used of course and for the first 6 or 7 months I always turned the phone off in the evening, which meant the battery would last for a month before needing a charge. I then changed my usage habits and began to leave the phone permanently switched on, even when charging. The phone was used very lightly and every power draining app was switched off, so it needed a charge about every 2 weeks. Then about 2 months ago I noticed I need to charge more often, about once a week and the use of WiFi, Bluetooth, mp3 or video etc will drain the battery far quicker than 6 months ago. In spite of no prospect of a safe Jelly Bean update I would like to keep this phone as it is stable, fast and smooth. I have searched but no one seems to have discussed or even considered DIY surgery to replace the battery with a new one. Does anyone know if this has been covered or if this would even be possible.

  5. How to clear the Hard Drive

    Thanks for the info. I have erased the USB Storage but can no longer load files to the phone as it appears to be unmounted. Is there a way to mount the USB storage as I cant see one.
  6. My San Diego is getting very full and I would like to start again with a clean HD. I have searched extensively but can find no specific information on how to do this so any advice appreciated. My phone runs original ICS 4.0.4 and is not rooted.
