As for the FM radio, I am able to get other channels as well (in the Delhi NCR area).
Does anyone know asus customer/service centre in hyderabad. Atleast contact details

For all those who bought this phone in India, and got the SatGuide navigation software along with it: the company has just released an updated version (7.5) of their software, which is available as a free upgrade from their site: http://www.satguide.in/FreeUpgrade.aspx

ms, 29 Jul 2008How can I copy my SIM contacts to phone? Where can I get free games and softwares for ASUS P527?Unfortunately, the phone doesn't include a SIM Manager. If you have a Bluetooth enabled older phone, then you could just Beam your Contacts to this phone. Otherwise, you will literally have to copy each Contact individually! As for softwares, this is a WinMo phone, so these are pretty widely available, including this site.

If it is the latter, then it is possibly a cracked version! (you can tell if you never had to activate the software through SatGuide). My vendor did the same, and I had the same hanging issues that you are describing. Once I obtained the official software from him, it is working like a charm!
As for GPS softwares, I've tried a few: The problem with SatGuide and MapMyIndia is that they're just ports of their softwares meant for their own navigation devices - so they are not the most user-friendly out there. Even though MapMyIndia has the best POI database, but it is such a bad software that is a challenge to get it to be useful for the whole trip!
MapKing on the other hand, is more of a native WinMo application, and has the fastest response time compared to the other 2 softwares. They only have maps for 3-4 major Indian cities, and each one is sold separately for about 1500 INR. There search functions (9 different types) are just superb, and very efficient - you can download a trial version from their web-site to check it out.
As for the Infrared port, this phone doesn't have one. The official ASUS specs also don't mention one, although this site incorrectly mentions that this phone has it.
i use a p 527 my self but destinator 7 always freeze after few recalculations of route , but other s like mapking is good ....any tips on that ,then the phone specs says infrared but the phone i bought from india do not have one is it a true specs ???? please rply my queries if possible

You can also download the trial version of MapMyIndia to check out a more detailed navigation software.
Opera 9.5 is an alternate web browser you can use instead of IE which came installed on the phone. There is a free mobile version called Opera Mini (http://www.operamini.com/) and an advanced paid version called Opera Mobile (http://www.opera.com/products/mobile/).

I would suggest that you try to use these phones before commiting to buying one of them. I love using Macs, but even I had problems using the iPhone the first few times I used it. The WinMo phones, on the other hand, are quite similar to the Windows PC's in experience and customization, which is what attracted me to them.
