    Blackberry has such settings for vibrate up to 3 times and then ringtone starts.

  14. Hello Raza,

    I brought this new Super Sleek Super Amazing Galaxy S2 phone.
    I migrated from Nokia after a long 1.5 Decade and found this to be an amazing move. However I am finding it difficult to manage all my tasks, calendar, SMS (Send/Receive) etc very difficult. Since I was used to Nokia PC Suite/OVI Suite I was looking for similar application that can help me manage the basic things just like i did in Nokia. I’ve found an application “MyPhoneExplorer” however if there is any official application it would be of great deal and trust than using a 3rd party app.

    Your advise would be of great value.

    Thanks and Regards

    • hey , you will be getting the CD right, check in it.But android is like the Linux Operating system and its quite advance. you just need to find where the file located, i can say you can use search box in your computer. tat will help you. but if i know any pc suite like thing, i ll drop the url soon

      • I was able to use MyPhoneExplorer which i installed both on my PC and phone and was able to synch smoothly, however this has few drawbacks. It does not synch Outlook notes, and does not sync contacts completely i.e. if you have more than one number associated with the contact it may not sync them fully.

        I am still in search of any sync application that would allow me to sync up with outlook mails, notes, calendar and tasks in offline mode.

        Let me know if you can help with any, drop me an email of you find one.

        Thanks and Regards,

    • I too migrated from Nokia E51, and thought the phone sII is good, I find Nokia was much easier to navigate. Some issue I need help on :

      1) Tasks – Nokia had tasks listed out on the home page. In s2 I can only see 1 task listed out and the other tasks need to be accessed by going to the date in the calender. Now is there any way I can get all tasks listed right on one of the home screens ?

      2) How do I get Internet access to my laptop by using s2 as a modem ?

      3) Reminders – How do I transfer my Nokia reminders (yearly birthdays etc.) data to s2 calender ?


  15. hi,
    i have a samsung galaxy s2 i want to connect my samsung galaxy s2 to my internet pc how to do it can any one tell me.

  16. I only use the first two.. Most of these, i tried, but i didnt have use for the others.. like google goggles and evernote, or ebay.. i also dont use an Advanced Task Killer since i think theres a built in task killer on the phone..
