The USB standard only specifies a rather low charging rate (0.5 amps), but there are well-accepted ways for devices to get a higher rate (by negotiating with the host). See How much power does a Galaxy Tab 10.1 charger need to supply? for more details (of course the specifics about the Galaxy Tab probably won't apply to your phone, but the general ...

Put your device to sleep mode for faster charging. check o/p voltage and current of your adapter(charger) and use higher o/p current adapter(this option might produce more heat while charging so could damage your device, proper cooling while charging expected)

You're root, you could replace the sound files with silent clips. This is what I've found: find /system -name '*ogg' | grep cam /system/media/audio/ui/camera_click.ogg /system/media/audio/ui/camera_focus.ogg Audacity is a free and open editor to create an empty or silent sample and export it as an ogg file. EDIT: According to this question/answer you ...

You may need to manually specify the network and/or APNs in Settings->Wireless and network->Mobile networks->Access Point Names - vodafone's tech support for vodafone should be able to provide these for you. I have to do this when I use my WIND Mobile SIM card in Canada on my phone.

If the SIM card doesn't work out of the box in your TPT, it's very likely that your US tablet is not compatible with the mobile communication standards used in India. What happens if you put the SIM in the TPT? Mobile data USB sticks can't be used with the TPT, afaik.
