comment Using IP to ping a real Android device that is plugged by USB from computer
Also worth noting: 160.xxx.xxx.xxx doesn't sound like a local network address. It's most likely the address of the mobile data connection, where ping (and other services) directed toward the device often is blocked by the carriers routers.

comment Why am I being charged after having disabled mobile data?
"carrier should not be a problem" – umm, and who then is charging you if not the carrier? Who else might send that billing information?

comment Default install location?
See this answer for how to find and set the default install location. And if the tag applies to your real issue, I also recommend you taking a look at our insufficient-memory tag-wiki.

comment Cannot write files to sd card
Bad idea without knowing which fs types are supported by the device (NTFS certainly not). I rather think Android sees some problems (which ever) and thus mounts the card read-only. See my comment on the question on how to figure what's going on; without knowing the cause, it's hard to fix.

I'd first check if the Android logs give some clue. If you never read them, please take a look at How can I view and examine the Android log? and our logging tag-wiki to get started.

comment Why does my android phone think it was in Japan?
wim, check all of them (best before asking anew, as too many duplicates make it hard to gather the facts). Easy example: Two weeks ago I lived in Japan. Now I live next door to you. I didn't change the SSID of my router, and Google didn't yet update its database. So whenever your device sees my SSID, you're in Japan – according to Google... as onik also pointed out below. We've got this question at least 10 or more times, so all the facts are probably "spread around them".

Not really a rare question: Maps location out by 12,742km - the other side of the world / Google location history wildly inaccurate / Google Maps Location History is showing an incorrect location / Gps mistaken my location and get me to trouble / ...

comment I am having Xolo Play smartphone. I want to support it Gujarati Font. How can I do that?
Same as with most other fonts I'd say. Have you checked the corresponding questions? There are even some posts specifically to Gujarati.
