    Any help with rooting? Been trying to do it with my Nexus S, but it's super complicated. It's especially annoying considering I wanted to mod Widgetlocker.

    Hey guys, just picked up my Android device about a week ago and it came with a 3gb FUP.

    I've been looking at my unbilled use on the My T-Mobile site and for some reason there seems to be random charges under "Mobile Data Usage". For most of the items there is a base cost, but then a billed cost of 0. But every once in a while the base cost doesn't seem to be "waived", so to say.

    I haven't been out of the UK (or Scotland for that matter) since getting the phone.

    Under mobile network settings I have already unchecked Data roaming. T-Mobile Internet is selected as my access point.

    Where are these charges coming from and how can I stop them? It adds up to about 5 pounds now.. it's not too bad but it'll add up if I don't put a stop to this now
    Might want to ring them up about that.

    Meh, not too bad I guess. I get marginally more on my iPhone, but I charge than when I get home every day anyway. How does it perform? Does Flash work well?
    Performance -

    -Very snappy
    -Apps open very quickly, I can't remember the last time I had to wait to do anything.
    -Have a huge numer of apps running at the same time due to the 800mb of RAM, I seem to always have 100mb+ available.
    -Smooth scrolling across homescreens and across OS though not as buttery smooth as on window phone 7
    -Doesn't lag in games at all due to adreno 205

    Flash

    -Great to be able to stream of sites, e.g I stream Bloomberg
    -Sometime it can lag if you don't have a good connection, when on wifi it's great
    -Normal websites with flash banners and everything it's still quick
    -On youtube as long as you don't watch 1080p videos it doesn't lag

    I only a 100mb available when I kill everything

    Oh well, I will be getting a new phone this year and will probably wait till after MWC

    It's just some expo where big companies officially reveal products that were leaked months ago

    Hmm, I might just get rid of my iPhone tomorrow then, depending on how spontaneous I feel... :p:
