      • muneebahmed

        what about the battery backup?

    • han is main 3G support hay

    • it have 3G 7.2mbps.

    • Asher

      yes, its only supports VOIP; not video.
      Wifi py battery jaldi farigh ho jate hai … so dont recomended for those who want long talking on IDEOS.

  • pakiiii
  • I’m using this phone from more than 5 months now.
    if someone wants to test his mobile apps in android device, this is best and to know about their OS.

    • Azi

      dear it’s network locked right.. did you unlocked this after unlocking any sim can use..?

  • we will get a Sim Card for free?

    • Yes sim card is included.
      Memory card isn’t included.

      If you dont want sim card, you will get 150Rs extra discount on handset price. <- I am not 100% sure about this

      • Agaria

        Yes you get Rs 150 on set if you choose not to buy a new SIM. I haven’t seen it on Zong Site, what about the battery backup do tell about it!

  • Jamal

    In symbian we can minimize applications. Plz tell me in andriod can the apps be minimized, means can I open more than one app at a time???

    • Android is 10 times more powerful than symbian 2nd edition 3rd edition.

      Han is main symbian say behtar apps running hay. Android slow wagera pangay bhi nahi hain.

      aik say zaid apps aik waqt run ho sekti hain.

    • Its called Multitasking, Android phones offers multitasking.

    • Stryker

      That is called multitasking :) and yes we can do it easily.

    • ali

      Yes u can One time open Many Apps Long Push Menu Button then you can… Enjoy!!!!!!!!!! Its easy afordable price get buy now

      • Tahoo

        Multitasking is very poor for this set because it has lower specs … But quality of the mobile is far better than qmobile …!

  • Jamal

    my friend has been using it for a year now (while i was using iphone 3GS which i sadly sold later) and i have found it to be an excellent set and very good for aspiring andriod user’s this set keep’s it all so simple and the touch is good also this set has 3G so no worries :) i will get one first thing in the morning cuz it has class and android operating system show’s alot of promise, for further specifications of this handset please visit
    and dont worry about the price mentioned there as it has not been updated the real price set by zong now is Rs.6,999 so cheer’s mates.

  • kamal ashraf

    jamal brother, android is father of all mobile operating systems.

    • TPSstar

      not father, features are borrowed from another major OS indeed..hope you understand what i mean :)

  • Secret

    Is it Network Locked phone?
    I don’t want to use zong.. what can I do?

    Someone please help me :)

    • A for Apple

      It is networked locked, you can run only ZONG SIM. However you can download DC-UNLOCKER and get it unlocked. This software require 10 credit (each is 1 euro) to unlock Huawei U8150 (this set) so essentially for an unlocked phone you will be paying additional Rs. 1181 with grand total of Rs. 8180. I have not done this as I am unable to find set at any zong sales center, this is based entirely on my research. Please do it at your own risk.

      • Awais

        I was able to find somebody in Blue Area Islamabad who unlocked it for roughly 700 rs.

        • sheraz

          it can be unlocked from singapore plaza in only 500 rs.

  • Engr.khurram

    Someone tell me any one in karachi to unlock this cell fhone

  • H.M.M.Bilal

    Assalam-O-Alaikum. This was the first Android handset which I bought for 11000. I can’t say that in words that how good this handset is! It is the best ever handset I have ever used. It’s screen color display is better than Samsung Galaxy Young. I was about to buy Samsung Galaxy Young now but When I listened that the price has decreased then I finally decided to take this one because the previous one was snatched. IDEOS got 3.2 MP Camera and Galaxy Y got 2 MP. It is almost 600 MHz and Galaxy Young is 832 MHz. Samsung Galaxy Young is only faster than it but now you are getting IDEOS in 7000 only. Its price is the half of Galaxy Y price which is 14000. IDEOS is the best Android handset, available in the Android market. Must Buy

  • Omair Ahmed

    Please confirm prize of unlocking in Khi..
    As no way i am going to use Zone sim….
    In 6,999 Hands down to this set..nothing can beat such offer…
    Best price to performance ration…
    6,999 >>> 14,000
    U8150 — Galaxy Y

  • Faisal

    i m using this set for the last 7 months, it is very good. i hv checked many ROMS but i found that Dronix 0.5.4 is best ROM. this ROM has multitouch but only 2 fingers, pinch to zoom works perfect. moreover process speed can be overclocked to 748 MHz. just install Dronix 0.5.4 then u ll get all these features.
    people at XDA forum have released a gingerbread 2.3 based ROM, even ICS ROM is in progress. in 6999 Rs. this phone is best phone, better than Nokia’s and Samsung’s phones which are double in price.

    • Adnan

      does it support skype video calling ??

      • Faisal

        not, but audio call works perfect on wifi

        • Yousuf

          Faisal Bhai, Aap nay Ideos ko kahan tak overclock kia hua hai?

          Please reply asap!

          • Faisal

            691 MHz tk.
            dronix ROM main 748 tk ho skta hai but woh risky ho jaye ga. 691 tk koi problem nahi hoti.

  • ahsan

    bhaio fikar na karo,, feburary ka second week ma ufone ideos ki keemat ma bhi kami hogi and that will be selling for 5999,,, or 6k,, with new sim,,else 200 rs sasta hoga,, just wait and see this,, enjoy this competition

    • Azi

      how you can say this?

  • Adnan

    Wow wat a jump from 16000 to jus 7000 Rs/-
    Suspicious…….. !! It looks that there’s smthing wrong somewhere,
    Guys wat u say ???

    • Omair Ahmed

      I dont think so…
      as we all know that its update official is not avaible..
      Also its getting old…now Samsung Y is avaible for 13k and HTC ecplorer for 15K…
      which are 100% better than huwai u8150..
      thts why they had to reduce the price to sell them…

    • ahsan

      Tho bhai app isa open market sa lay lo,, in open market its for 16k in blue area,, and there is not a single difference except that open market wala pa ufone ya zong ka label nahi hoga,, this is the last stock of zong which is out dated , they will introduce new sets instead of these,,and plans are underway to offer sale on other old models,,shortly in 2-3 months those will also be on sale,, ufone ka b yahi iraday hain,, afterall its competition.,,,cut throat

  • Pressflair

    It is really great offer by zong

  • Dalpat Rai

    This set is fabulous… I bought it at Rs.11,000 but I think I should have waited for it. Its now worth Rs.6,999.

    The best thing I like about it is its body. Its very hard to be broken. Its really a tough and durable.

  • Muhammad Anas

    I am using this set with my LAN wifi (512 kbps) and voice calls are carried smoothly.

    For those who are asking about its availability, it should be available in any Zong`s CSS and Franchise.

    Do anyone know how to root the Ideso and will it finish its warenty or not?

    • Faisal

      yes, rooting the phone would void warranty. u can use z4root (version 1.3) install it on phone and run that app, that’s it. moreove, this app gives u unroot option too. so I guess, untill u don’t change phone recovery the warranty won’t be void, becoz u ca. unroot the phone.

  • Yousuf

    Please read and reply urgent.

    Kia kisi nay IDEOS ko fully overclock ker k is per Angry Birds chalaya hai? If yes, Kesa chalta hai?

    • Faisal

      rooh ur phone install “no frilss cpu control” app, run this app and overclock upto 691Mhz, u r ready to play.

  • Farhan

    It’s good to know that ( one of the best smart phone is available at such price ) if anyone does not know this is a pure Smartphone for those who are looking for more features and easy phone this is one of my favorite phone.

  • Faisal

    it is simple as ABC, first of all root ur phone then install “no frill CPU control” app, open app and overclock upto 691MHz. after that angry birds becomes very responsive almost no lag.
