Hey guys iv been using dell venue pro for over 3 months now..the phone is extremely solid and good to use...battery is about 1500 mah which lasts upto a day which is pretty satisfactory..the screen (AMOLED) is absolutely top notch and watching hd videos is so much fun on it...
Just wanted to ask if its possible to run android on DVP (Which is running on normal dell venue by the way)...
Windows 7.5 plainly sucks on this phone which otherwise is the best in its category..
thanks in advance

I too have owned just about, close to every phone! Nokia, Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and of course USED to be the best qwerty "physical" Blackberry device in my opinion! I love it and now that I'm playing in the *engineering mode* it's becoming more and more of my favorite! Modding it with "Alienware" d
I wonder what's the meaning of "Not User Accessible" Memory?? does it mean that we can't write or put a file on it?
i have used all kinds of phone made by Nokia,Samsung,Motorola,Sony Ericsson,LG,Apple iphone etc for the past 9yrs and so far Dell Venue Pro is by far the best.Everything about the phone is great except the bluetooth which does'nt seem to connect to other phones.With the update to 7.5 (mango),believe me,it is SUPERB.I can hadly put it down.
Pujit, 29 Apr 2012Congrats sam on your purchase of the phone. But are you sure that venue pro has got its update... morePujit, I bought it online from Tradus for 14,300 - got it delivered within two days with bill - site is reliable.
Else you can also buy from Suleka for 14,400.
Pujit, 29 Apr 2012Congrats sam on your purchase of the phone. But are you sure that venue pro has got its update... moreThe phone came with WP7 out of the box. But if you connect it to your PC and run the Zune software and update the phone, it will automatically install all available updates. The latest one, which installs WP 7.5 is named 7.11.xxxx.
Zune really is not a problem I was talking about. The Zune software you use on the PC to transfer music, videos etc. is very-very smooth and much better than iTunes. It's just that I dislike that you can't simply drag and drop files into the phone's memory like I can do with my other phone. Also, to download any app you must have a hotmail/windows live accounts (which is free)

Sam, 28 Apr 2012Just got the phone yesterday, very very pleased with it. Keyboard is nice, sliding mechanism i... moreYes it does but not phone function can be used. Only use the Wifi, Twitter, FB and play games provided your using these applications with WiFi switched on!
Just got the phone yesterday, very very pleased with it. Keyboard is nice, sliding mechanism is solid. Back panel is non-glossy and that is a big plus for me. It came with WP 7 but it only took me about 20 minutes to update it to WP 7.5. Interface is slick. The only main concern is that Microsoft seems to be locking it down a bit by making you use Zune software and signing in to a Live ID before downloading any app. But at the current price (INR 14,000 ~270 USD), it is totally unbeatable.
BTW, I asked this question but did not get any response - the phone does function without a SIM card inserted.

For all those people who been asking about how to get a Micro-SD card working on this device. Here you go watch this video for all the details.
Caution: Like the person mentions your warranty will go void once you rip that black sheet which covers the Micro-SD card and yes it supports upto 16GB for now!

Saurabh, 30 Mar 2012Dell has discontinued Venue pro in US today. Is it still suggested that one should buy it..??
... more25,000 dell employees have dell venue pros. That's a pretty good reason to keep them up to date.
The problem is not that they stopped making dell venue pros. Heck, some of the most popular windows phone devices have also been discontinued. The problem is that they don't make any other windows phones, or any phones for that matter. This fuels speculation that dell is exiting the smartphone market entirely, and the department tasked with adapting windows phone updates to their handsets would be eliminated.
There's really no telling whether or not the DVP will ever get windows phone 8. If you want to play it safe, get a lumia 900 on AT&T, or wait for another T-Mobile phone with a decent sized AMOLED screen. It's worth mentioning though that these are pretty cheap in the aftermarket, so if you want to try one out, you should go for it. If they aren't updated when WP8 comes out, sell it.

I was planning to buy it but now i feel hesitant whether dell will provide updates or service for this device any more.......your expert opinions please
Will this phone function if no SIM card is inserted? I mean can you play games, music etc. ?
