Hey ya all,

Firstly, thanks for sharing such useful comments.
I own MotoDefy and I am unable to view the speed with the in-built GPS, even after switching on the GPS in the settings. Is there any official upgrade available to 2.2 for Defy.
Someone please help.

Pk , 30 Aug 2011Can it be used as a data modem to browse internet on ur pc?yes, but you need pdanet on your phone and pdanet desktop on your pc.

  • AnonD-19755

It can be used as a data modem (to share your phone's 3g or GPRS internet connection) using USB tethering or even a wireless hotspot using WiFi tethering.

And android has lots of apps that supports editing and opening pdf/excel/word/powerpoint such as Documents To Go, OfficeSuite Pro

As for rajz, who feels that he is cheated because his phone is acting weird, it could be related to a software issue, (almost sounds like it is overclocked too high), try performing a hard reset, (go to forums such as or and read around, ask for help)

last week i bought DEFY priced around 13k, today i've opened it... got a basket of gift full of FRAUD.
when i entered 3G sim on it, it goes on the on-off loop. i changed the sim to airtel 2G but it badly hanged after 3 mins.. all the buttons stoped working. finally i removed the battery and restarted it with some home........ faced the same problem once again.

the whole battery discharged within 3 hrs.. when i left the phone hanged for a while, and became too hot to touch.

every effort to turn in ON go on veins...... i'm feeling totally cheated and embarrased.
my first android phone experience... nobody should ever get these type of experience.

please help me out........ i want a replacement of the product.. but motorola cc says... we'll repair it

is it justifiable to manufacture a faulty item....... and repair a mobile having life span of less than a day????

amir, 29 Aug 2011today i will go to buy defy...but i have some questions pls... moreIn reply to your questions... it uses gorilla glass, so yes it is scratch resistant (not un-scratch able but really hard to scratch),

and battery is acceptable for an android phone.

You cannot "upgrade" the processor but it is the same chip used in many other phones clocked at 1Ghz, so you can overclock it to 1ghz safely (you need to root your phone), some have even clocked it to 1.2Ghz safely...

as for android 2.3, it is supported, currently there are CyanogenMod7 Roms as well as leaked 2.3 ROMS that can be used on Defy, more will come later, and since it is the same chipset as Defy+, the ROMS will hopefully be compatible.

All these can be achieved if you are willing to get your hands "dirty" by rooting and installing custom recovery (yes it will void warranty), if not, then you need to stick to the original ROM and configuration which may be a bit slow.. :D
