Hey Guys, I brought this device 1 month before, m completely dissatisfy with battery backup. only 30 % charging done in 3 hrs and completely dries in 1 hrs. I have visited service center within 2 days of purchase of device and those guys could not solve the problem.
Another thing, Can anaybody tell me how to move applications from phone memory to SD card memory. In setting storage option, i could not find my 32 gb SD card and unable to transfer app on the same.
fantabulas phone but . karbonn announced 4 gb internal memory abilable in this phone but this is not a truue
For all you Karbonn A30 users who are facing the Auto rotation problem ,
I would like to tell you that I have found out a fully working trick for the fix of this problem ...The people at service centre will not be able to fix this because all what they do is just update the software and it does not help .
I would soon post a trick for the fix of this problem and the trick doesn't require any installation of apps or anything like that ...
I would post the trick after some time as i am busy now and the trick is lengthy and would require a lot of time to type ...
So all you Karbonn A30 users , keep visiting this space frequently ...
Kindly reply to this post , giving approval that you really want this trick (otherwise it would be a waste of time for me to type and post it if you guys don't need it. )
purchasing karbon A30 mobile last month was the bigest blunder i made as most of its function doesnt work eg.bluetooth not getting connected and many more.And the biggest horror is that it has verry verry verry poor batterry back up
sam007, 25 Feb 2013Hi, I have this phone for 2 months now. Its a lot better than
Canvas 2. The only cons is its ... moreHey Sam007,
Are U also facing the problem of no Auto Rotation in KARBONN A30 as is being faced by me(I have posted details in my opinion dated 27 Mar 2013 2055 hrs).Best of luck with A30.
Hi frns, i had decided 2 buy Karbon A30 but ur comments upon it made me confused. So plz suggest me for d correct set.
I agree to most of the user's who commented on Karbonn A30 & which is a fact that this phone is BAD. I have been facing same issues which has alredy been listed by other user viz:- Auto rotation doesnt work, Earpiece doesnt function due to which i have to attend to calls using speaker, touch response is pathetic, battery gets heated up while charging & also when it is not in use, battery back up is worst which i have experienced, applications work very slow in this phone, camera doesnt work properly, G-sensor which is a unique feature is unique in this phone as it never worked..... etc infact list is endless... Karbon has educated user's on what all problems can be faced while using a cell phone as they have put in all sort of problems in this phone & I am pretty sure this would be existing in other phones of Karbonn... I have learnt a big leason from this experience of KARBONN never go for cheap mobiles or unbranded stuff like KARBONN instead put in extra money & get other branded mobiles so as to make our life easy other than wasting money & taking such a headache... I cant believe I have experienced all these problems in last 20 days of my Karbonn A30 purchase... This would be history in my 10 years of cell phone usage which lasted for 20 days... Karbonn on a serious note please provide better products to consumers to use it for a longer duration which will make them feel worth for money rather than launching such phones which is just a waste of money just a suggestion if you really care for good customer satissfaction coz i just wasted Rs.11,400/- 20 days back with lot of expectation but all in vain... All the best Karbonn hope to see better products... I am just a common man so what I can do best is HOPE... Cheers!!!
MULTIPLE DEFECTS AND PROBLEMS: KARBONN A30
I had purchased a Karbonn A30 Mobile in Feb 2013 with great expectations, but very soon after purchase the first problem with the mobile set occurred. Since then, a series of various defects/problems have occurred with this set, causing deep disappointment, frustration and very high level of inconvenience to me.
Problem No. 01: No Auto Rotation- This was the first problem to take place. This problem was noticed on the third or fourth day after purchase of phone.The problem of Auto-Rotation was solved only temporarily at the Karbonn’s Jaipur Service Cente but after 2-3 days it re-occurred, and since then it has not been solved. [When the Auto Rotation stops working, the Accelerometer also stops working. If we switch off the phone, remove the battery and then refit the battery and restart the phone, then the autorotation and the accelerometer start working again but they again stop working after 1-2 days, and again we have to restart the phone(by removing and refitting the battery)KARBONN HAS NO SOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM AND SHOWING TOTAL OF PROFESSIONALISM THEY SAY THAT THIS PROBLEM OCCURS BECAUSE OF NOT PROPERLY EXITING PROGRAMMES(IF IT IS SO THEN WHY DOES'NT IT TAKE PLACE WITH SONY OR SAMSUNG OR MICROMAX PHONES? ALL CRAP)[The Accelerometer name is bma222 3 – Axis Accelerometer]
Problem No – 02: Main (Rear) Camera Not Working and Not Being Detected- After 2-3 days of visiting Jaipur Service Centre when I decided to use to Rear Camera, I found that it was not working and phone was getting hanged in case we try to access it. Only Front camera was working but the interface was working intermittently and was getting frozen /hanged repeatedly. This problem also has still not been solved.It is surprising to see that the Technical Team at Karbonn doesntUNDERSTAND THAT IT WAS AFTER INSTALLING OF SOTWARE UPDATE BY Karbonn’s Jaipur Service Centre THAT THE REAR CAMERA STOPPED WORKING.THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH Karbonn's SOFTWARE UPDATE WHICH IS CAUSING THE REAR CAMERA TO MALFUNCTION AND NOT GET DETECTED. The JAMMU SERVICE CENTRE (Network Communication Contact Person: Sandeep Tikoo ) IS NOT ABLE TO SOLVE THE CAMERA PROBLEM.
Problem No – 03: Earpiece (Speaker) Not Working- Few days after purchase, the earpiece speaker of the phone stopped working. So now I am able to attend the phone calls only through speaker-phone & not through normal speaker (earpiece). This is causing huge inconvenience to me.
Problem No – 04: Magnetic Field Sensor Not Working- Although the GPS is working absolutely fine but the Magnetic Field Sensor because of which the compass works, is not working. The details of hardware of Magnetic Field Sensor are as follows:-
# Name: -Yamaha 530 3 – Axis/Vendor: -AICHI STEEL/ Version: -01/Power: - 0.25 mA/ Range: - 600.0/ Resolution: -0.25/.
REPAIR RESPONSE AT JAIPUR SERVICE CENTRE
Problem No 1, 2 & 4 were explained and presented to Jaipur Service Centre. They could temporarily rectify Problem No 01, saying that for solving camera problem I will have to leave the set for 15 days, but I did not leave the phone to Jaipur Service Centre and presented the problem to Jammu Service Centre. Regarding Problem No 04, showing total lack of professionalism, “the Jaipur Service Centre informed that there is no Magnetic Field Sensor existing in this model by design,” whereas the fact is that this sensor does exist in Karbonn A-30 as per details given above #
REPAIR RESPONSE AT JAMMU SERVICE CENTRE
The staff at Jammu Service Centre have been very courteous and responsive like Jaipur Service Centre but till now they have also been unable to rectifying problems just like Jaipur Service Centre
I am a Tech-savvy, IT professional who buys home appliances and electronic gadgets only after carrying out a detailed study of their Technical Specifications, and I have bought Karbonn A30 with great expectations, thinking that Karbonn appears to be a responsible and reputed brand and also thinking that my money will be well spent in buying Karbonn A30. But besides getting agonised, inconvenienced and frustrated after buying karbonn A30, I am almost getting convinced that I have committed the biggest mistake by trusting Karbonn brand.
If anyone know how to make the Karbonn A30 work in Boston MA let me know cause it's a great phone all i need is for it to work, i add my t-mobile sim card the signal bars stays all the way down and it said no service.
auto rotation is working perfectly use prolancher application I am using this mobile 3months. with out any complaints
