If we reconnect it shows authentication prob.i hav 2 put in airplane mode and then returned to normal mode.Is their any solution.plz reply.this is the one and only prob.”help me”.


          • i think it might be a problem with your wifi router. It shouldn’t be affected by how many devices are connected. can you test it with some other WiFi connection


    • no problem with wifi …… i also read this on fkipkart and had doubt but got it cleared by myself… have Unite 2 in my hands and it feels great. I had Moto-E of my friend as well and This one is much much better …. and this is my first micromax fon


  1. it is true that phone does not support WPA Wifi Network (which is most running wifi network on all broad band)
    please answer


    • Wifi Does detect WPA Wifis…..I had this doubt but got this phone today and found no issues at all with Wifi…seems to be quite good deal so far…..


  2. hi….i ordered unite 2 today..have same question as my fellow friends have regarding WPA wifi. Plz answer as if it doesn`t work then i will cancel order.


  3. I saw a reviews on flipkart that says this one has no GPS and the Wifi does not support all a/g/n networks or something like that. Please clarify.


  4. does it support all wifi bands especially which are present in any college…. in which whole campus if wified??


  5. My Micromax Unite 2 Doesn’t detect 8GB SD card. Tried different memory cards 2/4GB. Formatted and still it asks to insert External SD to mount.


  6. Today i tried to send files from unite 2 through wifi direct to samsung s4 But it doesnot work and i tried files from s4 To Unite 2 that also failed. But both of them connected , files didnot make it . Could solve my problem?


  7. my unite 2 doesn’t support wifi direct to send files to samsung phones. does it have any solution?
    both of the phones get connected through wifi direct but i can’t sent the files through it.


  8. I bought this unite 2 from flipkart and am facing an issue. It’s not detecting the network, is their any solution to resolve it.


  9. I brought few days back.. But my speaker is not good.. Its not sound gud.. Its cracking even at a slower volume.. And not sound as loud than other phones.. Can i sort out this problem??


  10. 1) Wifi connectivity is bad! Its constantly fails to connect and stay connected. It requires the phone to restart to get it started. Gmail notifications just does not work on wifi but does show when on mobile network.
    2) T9 Option just doesnt seem to work
    3) In my opinion camera front and back is not great. There is not much to do about it since I have already bought the phone.
    4) Im very disappointed to know 3G works only on one SIM and that slot for one is mini. Were these specifications mentioned? Or did I miss something?

    I bought my phone from flipkart. Im going out of the country soon. Any quick fix suggestions along with a quick response on the above will be highly appreciated. Thanks!

  12. Hi Deepak,

    I have this phone. The internal memory for Apps is very low. Checking the reviews i was under assumptions, the Apps can be directly installed into SD card. But when i checked, we can only move major part of an app to the SD card after installing it to the Internal memory. Now my internal memory (Apps) has only 100 MB free space and when i try to install any apps that are greater than 20 – 30 MB, it throws error. I have to uninstall other apps to install a new one. So is there any way it install apps directly to the SD card and not to the Internal memory.

    Thanks in advance,

    S

      • ya that i know but there is no option for move to internal sd card but when i put external sd card it gives me a option to move to external sd but not for internal


        • yes, that’s how it is for most phones. Some phones don’t give you storage partition, but they also don’t allow for apps to be installed on SD card.


  25. three soft buttons of unite 2 that are first one is menu ,second one home and last one is back
    most generally when we hold down the home button it shows recent apps

    • That’s not a problem. I think you will get used to it after some time. Download Nova launcher and go to nova settings>>gestures and Buttons>>home button>> and select recent apps from the list.
