    I didn't think there was any software you had to have just need explorer to move files over

    There is this coming out soon though http://www.markspace.com/products/an...c-android.html
    HTC Sync and HTCs PC side app installer.
    Not Android programs, HTC specifics AFAIK.

    It's a struggle to find the driver to make it work on Vista/7 right now anyway. It sync outlook email/contacts etc. I never use it.
    I used the app installer a few times, until I realised it can be done natively.

    what are the best settings for video encoding for HTC hero? e.g. the FPS?

    I have a few videos with high FPS (HD) and they don't play (green screen). audio is fine.

    Try using Videora iPod Converter and 'iPod Touch 2nd Generation' settings... It works fine for .avi's but I'm not sure about .mkv's

    You have a notification, like a missed call or a new text or email.

    Have you found you can drag the top of the screen down yet?

    I just passed on, and skipped it, in the ADC2 app too!
    It had Wordpress in the name, so it should be easy to find if its actually in the market..

    Yeah, there is a good one called wpToGo but the save feature works once but if you come back and edit it and save it again it is a bit temperamental. The iPhone wordpress app is brilliant but made inhouse by wordpress. I'm waiting for them to make an android one but until them I'll probably just type it up in some notes application and copy it over to an email when done then

    Yes, but I'm not going price hunting for you. I have the same card in mine.

    I'm not sure you even have to load it to the SD card yourself tbh. You will keep your warranty though... Unlike us MoDaCo users!

    I'm on Racoon 40, paying £35, 18 months, 12 mins, 500txts, 500mb, free phone.
