I have few basic doubts.
1. how do i sync my phone to google ?
i can see all google contact list in my phone book and hence its auto synced now. however i was previously using MS MyPhone which lets me see the contacts , SMS etc on web. I can edit those and then later after i sync , those changes where reflected on my phone.
How do i same with this phone ? esp how do i view my phone contacts and SMS over web on google ?
2. How do i kill apps ?
I have seen few apps on android market but let me know the best one
3. How do i save battery ?
yes i have turned off 3G,Bluetooh,Wi-Fi
4. How do i force phone not to use any data connection ?
i.e now my phone is always connected to Net (cauz i have limited data plan)
2.. i dont use any apps for killing apps, i normally close an app via the menu or by exiting on apps.. another thing i do is, kill the apps running in the background by going to;
then stop those apps i dont want to run..
3.. to save battery, brightness must be set the lowest brightness (still bright anyway) and must uncheck auto brightness..
don't use apps that have live updates i;e facebook, twitter,weather,daily briefing (must uncheck updates for finance,weather,ap news)
do not use live wall papers,
turn off GPS.
vibrates must be set low but still feel(able) LOL.. or turn it off if you want..
but what's the fun with not using the phone's cool features? right?
4.. ive been thinking about this too.. but i think if you are on wifi, 3g and 2g are automatically turned off.. not sure but that's what i think coz i notice the 3G/Edge symbols disappear when im connected on wifi..
those updates are not really bandwidth hogs, so i think you will be fine even if you have a limited data plan, but just to make sure , try and use only the ones you need the most.. net browsing/downloading are the worse in bandwidth usage, try to minimize that..
enjoy your phone !
