Does anyone know if 1700Mhz band is available on both sim card slots or just one of them, and which one. I want to use it for T-Mobile service for both work and personal, so I only have to carry 1 phone. Several emails sent to BLU are not replied, and no-one seems to have tested this functionality to confirm positively. Maybe the second sim slot is used purely for GSM service? Thank you.
How do you screenshot? and is there anything cool that i should know how to do on this phone?
I got the studio 5.3s issues with gps, my specs says snapdragon procc. Not mtk, can any 1 tell me if there any way way for it to work and please, does the advance could bring the same gps issue?
I bought my phone in march and its now may and my phone is booting up. When it does, and am using it notifications keep popping up saying "unfortunately messaging, whatsapp etc stopped". And no one seem to know what's wrong with it. Kenodalfusftp@Gmail.com please contact me and let me know what to do

Your instruction on how to install the micro sd card was very helpful. I almost damaged the clip. A lot will benefit from your post. You can include me. Thanks.

If you play the game "Temple Run" you will see that Gyro works. Gyro helps to turn the running man from side to side to collect coins etc.
Specifications page has a mistake in Sensors mentioned: Accelerometer-YES, Gyro-Yes, Compass-NO. Not Mentioned: Proximity-YES.
(Compass sensor shows East, West, North, and South directions with Compass apps and Map apps. Proximity sensor turns off display when we hold the phone close to our face to prevent accidental pressing of buttons by our face or ear).
Dose the phone have WiFi like it sends out WiFi ?
How do I turn it on ?
Help me please

DO NOT SLIDE the SD card under the metal clip.
DO NOT LIFT the metal clip.
DO PRESS FIRMLY on the clip, It will release the clip.
Then DO SLIDE the clip towards the edge of the phone.
The clip will open easily now.
Insert the micro SD card, metal face down towards the edge in the metal clip.
Close it, feel and hear the clips.
Put the battery back in.
Close the cover.
Go to Settings. You should see your new SD card with your a 14 GB (of 16 GB) capacity.
No need to do anything else.
Done. All devices, such as music player, gallery and camera should detect any newly added multimedia file.
Not a word about this in the user manual, it is a annoying omission that costs hours of research.
I am stuck with the micro SD card. There is not a word in the user manual about SD cards, and none on the Internet for Blu phones specifically. I located the SD card slot behind the battery. But, I can't get it in. There is a metal clip there. It doesn't slide, and it doesn't lift. So, the only possible and imaginable way to get this 16 GB micro SD card in, is to introduce it from the top, like the SIM cards, and to push it in. But, it doesn't go all the way. There lacks 3 or 4 millimeters. And, it wouldn't be right to force it more than I already did. Anybody can help, please?
can someone help me out with connecting to the internet with this phone? when I go to the google play store it ask me if I have an existing account or not. I pushed new account and it took me to the Wi-Fi setup page. then I select my internet connection, enter the password info and push connect, then it says authenticating, then it says saved, secured with wpa/wpa2. but the next button to go to next step wont work as well. also it says authentication problem(im not sure how to fix that problem.) it gives me the same problem when I choose existing account too. can some one help me out?

No gyro or compass sensor.
You should check with Blu to post the correct specifications.
Just get one of this phones and none of the programs i use can access the gyro or compass. I try with several sensor status apps but not one can find those two sensors.
Do you get your specifications from Blu?
This phone doesn't appear to come with those two sensors.
After ordering this phone, I attempted to find a replacement battery online. Unsuccesful. Contact Blu Products who referred me to 24hrsdeals.com. They tell me there is NOT a battery available for the Blu Advance at this time. If this is important to you, I would recommend you not buy this phone.
