FEW QUESTIONS: How secure is the payment to etotalk? has anybody bought from them? Should I buy from **********.com or etotalk?
2- Can these phones be rooted?
3- Is there any dedicated forum for these phones like xda or elsewhere? I shall be thankful in advance.
I have bought from etotalk several times, and generally shipping is fast and communication good. I would suggest that you pay for DHL shipping, as it is faster and safer.
Regarding payment, they accept PayPal. PayPal have a guarantee where you can get your money back if you do not recieve the product or it is not at described. I have used this once for a defective phone, and gotten a full refund from PayPal. The ********** payment is not as reliable in their "claim" handling I have read - you can't really trust their guarantee. I always use PayPal when shopping from China.
Regarding root, I have read that etotalk will not root it, due to warranty from Samsung. Don't know if that is still the case, but if not they normaly have a "etotalk mod rom" that includes root and install of Google Apps. Remember that Google Apps (like Google Play) is not there from the factory, and you need root to install them.
