  2. Do we have any free application which will monitor the Internet Usage i.e. Mobile Internet (Vodafone India). Currently m using 3GWatchDog.
  3. Do we have any free application for monitor the call, SMS etc?
  4. How to toggle between 2G and 3G network very fast. Do we have any widget for this?
  5. How can we expand mobile's battery life?
  6. I don't want to make SYNC google mails but want to use g-talk. But whenever connected to Internet, google mails are automatically try to get sync. How can I disable mails?
  7. Do we have any video player which supports all formats like flv,mkv etc?
  8. If we uninstall any application, do we having any tmp files in phone memory. How can we delete those?
  9. How to access phone memory and its contents?

1.Transfer the apps via Manage application.
Note : Not all applications can be saved in SD card
Apps cant be installed on SD .

2.NetCounter

3. Didn't get what exactly you expect

4.JuiceDefender works fine

5. Dont use data connection ,dont use 3G ,wifi,bluetooth,.Underclock the processor to 160MHz ,become a monk and pray in himalayas.

6.Disable Auto sync in the Settings -> Account and Sync menu.

7.Rock player and mobo player can play flv and mkv.BUT 551 cant HANDLE flv and mkv .MKV -480p stutters and audio mismatches. Some flvs has video-audio mismatches. AVI-640 p stutters but has audio and video in sync.Rmvb stutters and has mismatches.rm works just fine.Processor is weak.
Moral of the story: Convert videos and add to your phone.

8 and 9 : NO
Accessing internal memory is tricky and dangerous.A basic command over Terminal is necessary.You need to root your phone before accessing the ROM.

What I meant was I didn't know what exactly you wanted. .There was a beta app I used a while ago which gave you stats on how much time you talked to a particular number/contact ,how many sms were sent by a particular no. and so on.Will notify you if I got the name.

On top right corner
going right to left
you have battery indicator,signal strength ,3G/H(HSDPA) or E (Edge) icon and then the silent indicator.
OR

Try *#*#2263#*#*
Enable all in WCDMA

Do I need to check "Data Enabled" in setting as on top right corner I can see Signal Strenth (Without 3G/H/E), Battery Indicator and Time. Currently "Data Enabled" is not checked. If I do checked the "Data enabled" then will be charged for using mobile internet.I just want to see 3G network with 3G icon.

I tried *#*#2263#*#* and enabled all WCDMA but in that case too I am not able to see the 3G over there nearby the Signal Strenth.

And when we search for netwrok, then also we are not able to see any Network Prefix by 3G.
Please advice what need to be done here.

Depends on your network provider.Unless you download anything or try to access internet,You wont be charged with anything.
Data enabled means 3G in 3g mode and EDGE in 2G mode.

But in Nokia Mobiles, we do have 3G Icon by default whether we are using internet/GPRS or not. Its bit confusing that if will charged or not if making enabled the data in our galaxy. - bit disappointed.

Perfectly Not !!!!.Nokia doesnt give you an option for 3G/EDGE or WiFi .If by accident you access a website/link you will be charged with the Data charges .
Whereas Samsung provides you a control over the data connection.I mainly use WiFi for accessing market and emails so the data transfer is switched off.
An icon makes no difference to me.You will only be charged if you access data i.e if you keep data enabled and browse website,access emails or use an app which connects to internet.If you dont do anything you wont be charged.
Nokia N73 is a simple phone whereas 551 is smartphone.
My friends used to create blank profiles in Nokia just so they dont connect by mistake

1.)Contacts->left button ->Import/Export ->Import from SIM card
2.)Go to care centre and have it replaced/repaired.There was a bad batch of 551's and your's is one of them!!
