Swindled in Switzerland.

Swindled in Switzerland.

Went to a convenience store near our hotel and bought a Lebara CH SIM card. The proprietor told me the SIM, data and SMS pack would work without roaming charges in the rest of Europe. I asked twice.

This information was false.

Within ten minutes of crossing into Germany I got a message from Lebara CH that I had low credit on my SIM card.

19.90 CHF in 10 mins gone.
695Mb un-used data useless.
43 SMS un-used useless.

To aggravate matters. We crossed into Germany in the evening on a Saturday so all the shops were already closed. Sunday same deal. And the coupe de grace is Monday was a holiday [Whit Monday] and shops were closed again.

Moral of the story: one SIM card per country you visit.

FYI: The proprietor was Indian, so much for Asian solidarity in the EU.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
