    Hi all,
    I purchased a Galaxy W yesterday after so much reading & searching internet especially this forum. Now, I noticed that I can only make texts thru gtalk app, which is coming pre-installed with the mobile.
    Can I make voice or video chat thru it? Its Android version is 2.3.6

    Regards,
    Harish.

    Welcome to AF:)
    Once you open the GTalk app there is a check Mark under your name / where you set your status. Check that box and then you will be able to use that feature.

    No problem:)
    From what I could find the app is "allowed" in UAE. The check box I was referring to look like this:

    Don't really know of an alternative to G Talk that you could(or be permitted) to use but will look around and see if I can find something:thumbup:

    How can I delete the app itself? I've rooted this phone. So I can use Titanium Backup to uninstall it. But How I will re-download it? I've Searched the app in Play store. But couldn't find it there.
