Can we get Android 2.3 on this phone?
Does upgrading to 2.2 slows it up?

Am planning to purchase Moto Defy and is pretty excited about it. But am a complete newb... moreA brief answer to your questiones regarding Motorola Defy:
If you have broadband connection at home, you might have a wifi radio too. Please check or have it checked by someone skilled in LAN. If you don't have wifi, buy a wifi router, you can get a decent cheap one for about 20€.
If you enable wifi at home you don't have to worry about data plan. Otherwise your data consumption could be estimated as something between 10 and 50 MB per month.
Motorola Defy has a Gorilla glass which is roboust and scratch proof. Of course, there is no glass, which could sustain extreme damages.
Motorola Defy is intended for outdoor use and therefore is also waterproof and dustproof.
Hi everybody! I have this phone for a while and to sum up: GREAT PHONE! I LOVE THE CAPACITIVE RESPONSE ON IN AND THE RESOLUTION IS IMPRESSIVE. As negatives: the water restistance is questionable after a while the rubber seals fail but it is definetelly a sturdy solid phone for intensive use. Baterry is great. How i use it it lasts 2 easily! LOVE IT!!!!
I have this phone since 2 months, i'm using it daily for web and phone features, the battery holds for about 3 days top. I reached 5 days on stand by when i had only one call and i kept the phone with 3g and wireless off.
It came with android 2.1 and i made the update to 2.2.2 using the motorola update software ( the only way to do it ) The phone features has changed since the update ( camera settings for ex ) and it seems to be more stable, at least for me because when i first got the device the phone was freezing a lot, after the update i didn't had any issues. Careful what apps you are using from the Market as it can make the device unstable ( usually the case on all devices ) some are most compatible with the device rather than others, you will need to test the apps. Google should integrate an compatibility ratio for the Market depending on the device (the rating doesn't help )
Sid, 30 Jul 2011I just bought a Moto Defy and somehow something got switched on due to which there is a voice ... moreyou might have started Voice Readouts -
To turn off voice readouts - Touch MENU -> Settings -> Accessibility. Touch 'voice readouts' to disable it and then touch Accessibility to disable it.
Am planning to purchase Moto Defy and is pretty excited about it. But am a complete newbie/novice in tems of android and hence pls excuse my queries which may appear outright plain stupid to some of you.. Shall be glad if anyone can help me with following :
a.) Do i necessarily need to have a GPRS connection to use my phone? Have heard that android phone connect to internet on their own through GPRS.
b.) I have an unlimited braodband connection at home which unfortunately is wired to my PC and hence no wifi :(. So is it possible that i download the apps on to my PC and then transfer to the phone? And during/after installation do the apps need to connect to internet?
c.) If i use the phone only for normal browsing (gmail/facebook/cricinfo) and google maps, what kind of data consumption will happen in a month and which kind of data plans are available (have got airtel postpaid)
d.) Do i need a screen guard for the defy?
e.) Some good/useful apps for the phone.I shall be using the phone mainly for calls/sms, music, games.
Shall be glad for the help.
