Maps Brut from Nimbu ( works great with voice directions)

NZ Weather (doesnt work at all)

NZRoad Info (Traffic Cams)

SIM Checker Lite (texts and emails the number of the phone if it gets stolen and the SIM gets replaced)

SipDroid (for when I get around to connecting through our VOIP PBX)

Has anyone managed to sync directly with Outlook? Preferable via bluetooth, but cable is better than nothing. Cheers




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

RevoWution: I'm not entirely sure if this is a problem per se, or just where I'm located (central Auckland), but I've only ever been able to receive HSDPA (H in the taskbar) and GPRS (G in the taskbar) for mobile internet since day 1.

If I chuck the phone into GSM mode only, I only get GPRS (the little G in the notification bar, and it's painfully slow!), but I get more bars of cellphone reception.

If I have it on GSM/WCDMA mode, 90% of the time, I get HSDPA, but on rare instances, I've gotten GPRS. And I find that I get less reception bars in this mode too.

I have yet to see 3G in my notification bar, and was wondering if anyone else has this problem?


FWIW, my Nexus One behaves exactly the same.

I'm usually on "H". But then I'm usually in places with good reception.

Added TuneWiki as per NZtechfreaks (nztf) list, its pretty cool but seems to confuse the odd song. Will check out the rest of nztf's apps tonight.

Anyone know how to copy contacts from the SIM to the phone and get them all in the right order? Seems first names are back to front and phone numbers what where I would expect them to be.

Or is there another way to import them?

Thats only because you rooted the Nexus One.  Stock ROM behaviour is 3G, E, or nothing (which I'm guessing means GPRS).

If you've got a Google Account why not maintain your contacts there, and just sync them to the device (or failing Google try Outlook). I've done that for a while, always makes new phone setup a breeze, to mention nothing of the fact that its not a bad thing to have your contacts backed up to the cloud.

I have the apk for CallTrack by the way everyone, its a program that automagically backs up your call logs to your Google Calender, and its not available via the marketplace at the current time for Desire owners - someone at XDA messaged the dev and he sent the apk through (its freeware). Awesome stuff! Now I have my call logs and SMS all getting backed up to the cloud with no ongoing effort being expended on my part...

Thanks NZTF, yes I have only now completed that, but managed to duplicate SIM card entries and contacts somehow, now trying to delete the lot and start again.

Anyone know how to delete SIM card contacts from the phonebook? I can delete People contacts (which are the ones I want to keep) but cant find a way to remove the unwanted entries?

Go to People in the main menu, hit 'View', then untick SIM to hide your SIM contacts mate.

That works under People but if I hit phone under the main screen is if to make a call, all the contacts, both those under people and the sim entries are listed? I could delete everything and resync to google, but I cant even see how I can do that.

Go into the "People" app --> hit the "Menu" button --> "View" --> select only to view SIM card contacts --> go back and delete the shown SIM contacts by using the "Delete" option when you hit the "Menu" button at the main "People" screen :)

Once they're all gone, go back to "View" and show the contacts you want. In my case, I only show my Google contacts (as that's where I sync with).

Hope that helps! :)
