Replacement *genuine* S3 battery? by Mentalguy2k8
Can anyone recommend a reliable source for a replacement Galaxy S3 battery, all the Amazon sellers and a few phone sites seem to be selling knock off fake ones. I don't want the longer-lasting one (because they're bigger and then it won't fit in my case) but Samsung themselves don't seem to be selling their original S3 battery, just the higher-capacity ones. Many thanks for any help.

What phone will work in Jamaica? by Peter
Hi, I'm off to Jamaica later this year and was wondering what I need to do to get roaming service there. (For a holiday, not long term.) I would expect to take two dual band phones - a 7110 & a 6210, one on contract with T-Mobile the other on contract with Vodaphone. I can, if necessary, take a 6310i which would have one of the above sim cards installed.

Problem connecting Samsung smartphone to computer by Hc
Hello, I'm having difficulty connecting my Samsung smartphone to Windows 7. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, model number GT-I8160. When I connect the phone to a USB port the phone registers that it has been connected and also charges up but a bubble pops up from the task bar in Windows saying "USB Device Not Recognised" and I can't access any files on the phone. The phone is definitely...

Anyone still using Orange-OVP by Roger Mills[_2_]
My wife and I have both had phones on the Orange-OVP tariff for many years and - as very light users - this had used to be a good deal, with calls costing 15ppm for the first 5 minutes (billed by the second) in each 24hour period and then 5ppm, and it being free to retrieve answerphone messages. Then, a while ago, calls went up to 25ppm (billed by the *minute* - with no reductions after so...

Can't receive SMS text messages with new Vectone SIM by [email protected]
I have just installed a new Vectone SIM on my Hauweii G3512 phone. It works OK for voice calls in and out and I can send text messages but I can't get it to receive texts. I have three other Vectone SIMs all of which seem to work with no problems receiving texts.

Orange Magic Numbers: orange only? by Allan
Do Orange magic numbers have to be other Orange numbers, or can they be T-Mobile numbers (yet?)? I think I know the answer to the question (Hunting t'internet, it looks like a magic number has to be another Orange number, at the moment, even though Orange and T-Mobile are owned by the same parent company, they are still separate networks), but thought I'd see if there was any insight on...

Doro 410 charger by Woody[_4_]
Anyone know the connector polarity and output voltage of the charger for a Doro 410GSM? It appears to want -ve in the centre which though compliant with the original DIN spec is not the accepted norm these days. Also 5V puts an 'Overcharge' sign on the screen but 4.5V seems acceptable, whereas as far as I can find the official charger is 5V output. Before you ask, I inadvertently threw out...

Tesco/O2 by holkingers
Can you use a Tesco Sim card in a phone locked to O2? Is it like Virgin/T-Mobile where it works one way but not the other? Cheers.

Accidental Roaming by Mark Carver
If you're beyond 35km from a base station, you may well see the networks listed, but the time delay for GSM is too long to allow authentication, or is it ? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-26513546 I've often seen foreign networks from 100km+ flash up on a manual network search, but I've never managed to 'log on' to them, and I wouldn't have expected it to be possible ?

Good budget replacement for SE K750i by David.WE.Roberts
We have had SE K750is for ages and as a non-smart phone they do everything fine. Apart from the s*dding joystick which has been iffy for most of the life of the phone and is now virtually non-functional. So what is the cheapest modern phone which can be used on PAYG for texting, receiving calls, occasional outgoing calls and decent photographs? Cost would have to be below £50UKP because...
