Hi all, Got my Spica three weeks back but I'm still not able to use it as my primary phone . Undoubtedly it's a great phone with excellent value for money however few issues are really bugging me. I've already googled a lot and found various solutions or workarounds out of which some worked while many did not work for me because of various reason. There are already many similar threads floating around, The reason of starting yet another thread is I wanted all these issues to be put at on place for any new user who have either already bought or are considering buying spica. I understand the people may get irritated seeing same topic (that might have been already answered somewhere else) being raised again, But please do me a favor and just post the link to the solution which worked for you. So here it goes: PC sync - This is the issue number one. My phone is not even identified by the New PC Studio (NPS). The CD that came with the phone installed older version of NPS and I have updated to the latest version of NPS v 1.4.0 IL5. Also installed the driver. For many people it does seem to work but not for me. I can not synchronize the contact list or calendar. I can't just import contacts from SIM as lot of data is lost that way. Although i can sync with Gmail contacts and google calendar but i dont want 600+ contacts to fill up the phone book. Secondly my gmail contacts do not even have phone numbers associated to them. File Transfer from Memory card - I have to either reset to factory setting and/or restart the phone and/or format the Card to get it identified. Dont know what exactly works. I have installed the Automount App but it doesnt help much Update to 2.1 - How can i even think of it when i am not even close to getting my phone identified by NPS? MS Exchange support - You call it a smart phone? As of now it doesnt support MS Exchange email and calendar synchronization out of the box (This is not problem only with Spica, it is Android 1.5) and i guess this is done in 2.1 but dont know whether Spica supports it! Can anyone with Spica on 2.1 confirm? Substandard earphones - Earphones are simply pathetic. I was used to sony walkman w580i and now these do not even compare with cheapest in-ear earphones i've ever heard. It was totally unexpected. Please share your comments, May be it its just my piece thats crappy. I need to know that and if that's so i may get them replaced. App Development - I am a java developer and the basic motive behind buying an android was to be able to write own apps in familiar environment. But most have reported problem doing so. I could not even verify it ( as again the same old story, phone is not even identified) Bluetooth transfer - you simply can not transfer a file using bluetooth. No workaround. wait for 2.1 GPRS is always on - How stupid, there is no way to disable it. The only workaround is to create a fake APN and point there. Setting > Mobile Network settings > Access Point Names Any help on the first three issues is highly appreciated. PS: Model - Samsung Galaxy Spica i5700 OS Version - 1.5 Place of purchase/usage - Pune, India Spica is branded as Glaxy Lite/Portal in some countries. Firmware update's availability is specific to country. Thanks for reading through such a long post. I'll keep this thread updated with any other issues i face or solutions i find And please excuse my English.
