I have been using two phones till date – Motorola Razr and Nokia e71. Both the phones had its own contact list with a slight overlap. So when i recently bought Samsung c5212 dual sim phone I was left stranded when i tried to import the contacts using the Samsung PC Suite. Samsung reads only .nbf, .lef, .WAB, .csv or .vcf [vCard ] files.

I had taken backup of my nokia e71 through the Nokia PC Suite and it had stored files in the .nbu [nokia back up] format. I tried searching for some application which would convert .nbu files to the one Samsung supported. The closest application is Noki soft but the free version allows you to export just 50 contacts! The full version is available for $49.5.

My Dual Sim Samsung C5212 Phone

26 Oct 2009 In: Tech

I have been carrying two phones for a while now… my trusted and favourite Motorola Razr and a borrowed nokia… Thanks to some mess up with the charger my Razr stopped working and i was left with one dead phone. It was about time i invested in a new phone… a little research convinced me that a Dual sim phone was a better option. There are not many companies which dish out dual sim phones. Surprisingly nokia has none! Samsung, Intex, Spice and Onida were the only options with price ranging from

Finally i settled for Samsung C5212. The phone looks smart and has better built quality compared to others… It was easy to set it up… put the 2 sims and it asks you which is going to be the default one. Its easy to change the order whenever you want at the touch of a key… thing i liked was it rebooted itself whenever that was done…

You can have different ringtones for both your numbers… it’s a really useful feature. If you’re worried about not knowing whether a call is for business or social reasons, it’s better to have an alert system in place. Once this is set up, and it’s easy enough to research how for other phone models if you’re got an O2 uk Mobile Broadband online connection handy to check it out
… and its easy to browse through the call log or messages and know for which number the call/message was for…

It comes with Samsung PC Studio which is like any other desktop phone app. Some of the things you can do are

  • Importing contacts from other phone
  • Managing SMS/MMS
  • Transferring music/files
  • Organiser (Scheduler, Todo, Memos)

I had a tough time importing contacts from my Nokia backup files (.nbu). The scheduler was excellent. was able to fill in some 70 odd entries in a couple of minutes…

Its a year since i started the blog. As with everything i do, this blog started with a bang and then went through its phases of regular and not so regular intervals before i posted something.

Surprisingly on an avg i did 4 posts a month. My fav post would be “Design your own Personalised Tshirt!. I had to spend a lot of time to get this post done but it was worth it! Also this opened up a new category “Contest” which i am sure readers of this blog found interesting.

My best comment would be by Czaie. It makes me smile everytime i read it…

I have a couple of ideas which i want to blog about but they are time consuming… lets hope i can get some of them live this year…

What to look forward this year? A couple of contests shall come up soon… and hopefully some posts too 🙂

Thank you everyone who has been visiting this blog and leaving your comments…


Today I say GoodBye to my Home

9 Jun 2009 In: General

I must have written this post a couple of times in my mind… but am all blank now…

The time has finally come for me to say good bye to my home in Santacruz. We have to vacate the place today… I went there to have my last dinner knowing that i wont be walking in those streets ever…

Most of the things have been moved into a garage… Our home is almost empty… In the next couple of days they gonna demolish the building to build a new one… [sadly we wont be moving in back unless i can raise a couple of Crores in the next 1 year]

The Sheth family have been staying in this house for more then 65 years. My grandfather when he moved to bombay took up this place which was close to the railway station and also to Podar school where he was a teacher…

My brother and I were raised here… The place was small but never felt so… Our doors were always open inspite of me telling my mom to be careful and not let it be open all the time… It was a perfect place to grow up… lots of trees around, a big playground and lots of kids… add to it school friends namely Hitesh staying just a building away and my cousin Mihir in the next lane…
