ok so im thinking about going for the samsung galaxy s II deal on affordable mobile

http://www.affordablemobiles.co.uk/c...ns&siteid=1300

Are they ok to use? and do you normally get cashback if you go through topcashback

also i read that if you got through another company for a tmobile contact you get crap internet

The problem with going via another company for a t-mobile contract is that you get the throttled internet (300k), you have to pay an additional £5 a month for web and walk which gives you the full 2mbit!'

anyone know anymore one this?

I've got the same contract for a different phone. Works well. That's a really good deal IMO/

The options are available for FAT and EXT partition.
There no way you can just delete all partitions in Gparted (been a while since I've used it)?

Edit: Or resize another partition to fill the void?

Not that I've noticed, and yes, I'm on T-Mob.

Some graphical issues due to change of resolution

Seems nippy so far, we'll see how it stands up with apps installed.
You could change the DPI of your screen?

Wouldn't help. It's been changed to suit my resolution so the glitches are in the build itself.

Need to just hope for a DHD Sense 3.0 ROM if I stick with this.
Ah, fair enough. How is it overall though?

I am

You can happily run Vanilla Android or a Desire ROM on it and it runs well.
Bit iffy when you try to run the DHD/DZ/Sensation ROMs as they don't actually fit on the phone... you need to run some from SD card and it's slow as sin.

I love my HD2 but it's really only good if you want Vanilla/earlier Sense/MUIU ROMs.
If that's the case I'd rather not get one then. I'm really iffy about speed and fluidity. Like the other day I was comparing my mates Desire to my other mates' DHD and the DHD seemed so much smoother and fluid (granted the DHD does have more rom and a faster CPU).
I'm not sure which Android phone to get. Im thinking of getting one sim free and then chucking in a pay monthly sim.
I like the specs of the DHD, but its just not practical for me, I find it huge, just doesn't feel right for me. Whereas the Desire and Desire S specs aren't tempting at all
