    I took my phone to 3 store today. Thought I had bad network problems since July, but no it was the phone playing up.

    So they are either going to fix it or send me a new one whayhay =)

    HTC Hero. I found out the other day there's a 2 year warranty on it. It seems like I'm stuck with that phone for a while, and sell it as soon as it out of warranty.

    Why are you stuck with it? Unless youre meaning contract rather than warranty, then youre just being odd. Just because something has a warranty there id no reason to not sell it. In fact you would be better selling it while it has remaining warranty and while it is less old

    Yeah no I know it's not on contract and I'm talking about warranty. I am weird. I don't want to give it away without warranty. I doubt I'd even sell it second hand, I think I'm going to recycle it in the end probably.

    I think I'm finally going to make the jump to Android when the Galaxy S II is released. I'm a bit sick and tired with the lack of features on my iPhone compared to friends' Droids.

    Root and flash it then

    I'd still be on Éclair if it wasn't for a bloke I only know as Feeyo making a Gingerbread port for my Hero.

    Edit: At a guess, a phone released with Donut is going to have ARMv6 processor, so you probably won't be able to run flash anyway.
    Why not, hero is running ARMv6

    And it can't support Flash 10. It'll only run FlashLite.

    Ok slightly frustrating but I've got so many duplicates of my contacts it's annoying now. I've synced FB, my main Gmail account and the ones on my SIM but there just seems to be millions of the same contact. Am I just going to have to change the settings to view all of them and delete the dupes? I've tried joining contacts to simplify it a bit but still doesn't work.

    On a different note, something that made me laugh on XDA:

    BTW: Trolls should use their own Trolololol kernels and have their super-imba-incredible-cuttingedge extra RAM.. Please stay away from SpeedMod. Thx kai bye.

    I think I know how to root but not too sure about flashing it. How would I be able to do that?

    Various things, mostly the restricted app store (although I love the abundance of apps), restricted customisation, lack of widgets, lack of flash and lack of mobile hotspot (it's apparently coming to the iPhone, but I'd have to pay extra to my network for data ).

    Yeah I have to admit I went back on my iPod after 3 or 4 months and the apps are awesome, although some apps on Android are awesome too but not as many. Widgets are awesome, FACT! :awesome:
    I think mobile hotspot is available in the US now iirc but they charge extra on the iPhone don't they?

    I want a Mac, can't justify the price tag though Never used one before though. :K:


    On a different note, anyone fancy making a list of apps and games that are 'must haves'? Put them in the OP or something? Thought?

    So guys, what's going on with Android? Update me, because I'm falling outside of the loop. Too busy working disgusting hours and being here there and everywhere.

    Don't make me research. Do some bullet points for me (to research myself), but not on:
    - Honeycomb
    - Nexus S
    - Android Coding
    - Apple iPhone 5 rumours

    Anything else would be much appreciated lol!

    Ha, yeah I can see myself buying an iPod Touch later in the year once I miss some of my games

    Mobile hotspot is available on Verizon and apparently other networks are planning to implement it, but it'll be down to the networks whether or not you get it, and they get to charge what they want, which is annoying.

    Same I have a Macbook atm, but it's packing in. I think I'm going to save up for an Air before I go to uni in September.
