Are you running out of free space on phones like HTC Desire and variants? It only has about 150MB of free space and after official Gingerbread 2.3.3 update the free space has decreased. Its really frustrating seeing all those apps with 20MB+ size eating up valuable space on Android phones. Even with App2SD I had very very difficult time maintaining free space. Installing apps like Facebook, Google Plus, Google Reader would eat up all the space. Today I used link2sd to increase free space on my Android phone and now I've more than 1GB of free space for installing apps. I've been installed so so many apps now. link2sd can move your application apk, dex and lib files to second partition of your SD card and creates a symlink where necessary.

My teleco has provided Internet facility in which you can put data SIM card in a USB dongle and use Internet. Its call Ncell Connect . In neighboring country like India, some of them are called Reliance Netconnect+ . In such data SIM card you can only use SMS and Internet. You can't make phone calls. So to recharge or to know about the balance or data balance you have to send SMS. For Windows the software to do all of these comes bundled with the USB dongle. For Linux we'll find our own way. Let us use awesome program called gammu . For Ubuntu, click here to install. After pluging in the USB dongle open terminal and type: dmesg | grep tty This will tell you where your USB dongle is connected. For example mine is ttyUSB0 . Make note of this. Now run gammu-config to configure gammu. You only have to change one thing here. In Port the value should be /dev/ttyUSB0 where ttyUSB0 is what you noted above. Press OK and now we are ready to run gammu.
