    Does importing a phone from China lead to customer service hell?

    You guys in UK are lucky that you get phones ordered from China at all. Here, in our little corner of Europe customs instantly sends back most of them, mostly due lack or fake CE nad Rohs certificates. That includes popular phones like most Zopo models, JiaYu G3/G4 and Sege XYZ-X1 which is currently advertised right here. In fact i ordered the Sege after Paul got his, and it was sent back. As far as customer service goes, i contacted seller , they promised to reply in 2 days, but never did, so i sent couple more e-mails and finally placed claim with Paypal. After waiting for 6 weeks, i got my money back today. So i can consider myself lucky.
  2. Guys, its weekend. Im sure Paul is having some quality time with family. Just wait until monday...
  3. Yea, sold out very fast. As for 240€ price, its clear that Elisa did not want to sell Blade off contract, thats why such ridiculous price. Price on contract 5€x24 months plus mandatory 5€ unlimited data plan, while more expensive than at Saunalahti was still quite reasonable.
  4. As you can see Seb's ROM links are down. Thats the issue, or he would have done so already.
  5. Now if we only could find something what fixes SIM toolkit...
  6. Ah yes, now that you mention it, i don't have Sound Recorder in apps either, though i selected it in kitchen. Meanwhile, i took my SIM out of Blade, put it into Desire Z with stock ROM and SIM Toolkit was instantly available.
  7. Sure, why would i want SIM toolkit without a SIM that supports it? It works with all dumbphones, Nokia N85, Moto XT720 with Eclair ROM and HTC Desire with Froyo ROM. Doesnt work on Blade with any Froyo ROM's i have flashed. With r11 i can see Stk.apk under system/app when i click on it in Astro i get 2 options: uninstall and launch. If i click launchi gat message: "activity not found - com.android.stk"
  8. I cant find SIM Toolkit anywhere though i have made sure i have checked it in kichen. Downloaded and flashed 3 times now, still nothing. Am i missing something obvious?
  9. Silly question: Is it normal that ROM download from kitchen is very slow? Like 4 hours for 94MB file.

    Collective wisdom / Advice for best apps for

    It is really a matter of taste. As for PowerAMP, in my opinion it is worth the money, it just doesnt have competition now. For free alternatives Winamp and DoubleTwist are good enough, but both lack EQ/tone control and Flac support which i need and which PowerAmp has. As for Ebook reader, there are many, my favourite and proSPAMly most popular is Aldiko, but there are other usual ones like Kindle and others. It really depends on which format your books are in. Office app - the usual: Thinkfree Office, Documents to Go, and Quickoffice. I am not sure how/if they support document creation and editing though. Most office apps are also paid.

    New to all this...

    Read the sticky threads, most of it is quite well explained there. If after that it still feels like everything is too complicated then perhaps messing with custom ROM's is not for you. This thread by StevenHarperUk has lots of info, also Android glossary is a important to read when youre new at this.

    poweramp vs doubletwist

    Couldnt find anywhere if PlayerPro supports Flac and equalizer/sound control. Those are killer features of PowerAMP which sets it ahead of rest of the group. At least for me.

    poweramp vs doubletwist

    PowerAmp hands down. Equalizer/sound settings/preamp plus Flac support. DoubleTwist looks very nice but funtionality is really lacking. As for winamp, tried it , didnt offer anything stock player doesnt have (sure has wireless syncing but i really dont need it)

    MoDaCo Exclusive - Google eBooks APK download

    Google ebooks fails same way as Android market does. "The latest Google eBooks are not available for sale in your location, yet..." Google has still not learned the concept of international availability. Something to learn from Amazon...
