  1. Hi
    I was using xolo phone earlier and the call history, sms history gets activated automatically into my gmail account as a new tab. now i have micromax canvas gold and that feature is not there in gmail. need your advice in this regard.

    • If you have added a Gmail account during the pre-setup process, may you need to check for the sync option. You might not have enabled it.

  2. Dear Sathish,
    I have Micromax Canvas 2 Plus (A110Q) and phone is running fine. But it has some problems.
    1. Wifi not working
    2. Bluetooth not working
    3. Camera not working

    For the above reasons, I gave it to some technician in my location, he could not solve the problem, and after receiving it back, I found that the sims are working but no network. Means, I am able to read the SIM NAME (like Airtel, Idea) and able to read the contacts from BOTH sims. But No SIGNAL.

    It shows the error ::
    Emergency Calls only – AIRTEL
    Emergency Calls only – IDEA

    and some times ::
    No Service – Airtel
    No Service – IDEA

    For this problems, is there any person to solve my issue ?

    Thanks in advance


    • Hi Murthy,

      I think you could fix this problem by installing the stock ROM firmware again. If you are not sure about how to do it, let me know. I will publish a tutorial here.
