    Just got my first Android phone yesterday, I feel so proud Orange San Francisco, beautiful phone and a beautiful screen. The phone looks so much better in person than it does in picutres and videos.

    Anyway, does anyone know of an app which will let me check my Oyster Card balance?

    edit: For now I've added a shortcut on my home screen to https://oyster.tfl.gov.uk/oyster/loggedin.do
    I've had it a week (well, this replacement 2 days).
    I'd recommend you install the HTC keyboard. The inbuilt ones aren't great and the Android one doesn't even have a dictionary! Accuracy is so much better.

    I installed Launcher Pro as well. Looks much better without all that Orange junk It runs quicker too. My homescreens are a little bare atm.

    I got to check out the hinge mechanism on the Desire Z, extremely impressive, I was almost caught off guard with how fast it came out.

    There have been reports that it is quite flimsy though

    I decided I couldn't wait anymore, Virgin are getting theirs mid January. I also felt the new dual cores would add little to the overall experience. The next big phone would have been Samsungs new one and to be honest I don't want touch wiz and it'll take at least a few months to get a CN mod or a decent stable mod out so i'd be looking at a stable awesome UI around May-ish. And lets be real theirs only two manufacturers I'll get Android from HTC or Samsung :p:

    Yep, I've got both of them installed already What ROM are you using? I was using the flb 2.2 but one day whilst I was out the touch screen became unresponsive in the lock screen. I had to turn off and turn on the phone to get it to work again. It was a good ROM, but that little hiccup was enough to downgrade to the debranded 2.1 Oranage ROM. The new 2.2 ROM by Paul is in development. I tried the aplha r2 version and it made my phone so much faster it's unbelievable. Can't wait for the final version, but for now I'm still sticking with the stable Orange 2.1 debranded ROM.

    Btw, I switched to giffgaff today and I recommend you do to. You can port your old number. Just take a took on their site.
