    Try downloading GPS Status & Toolbox. See if you're getting a GPS fix.

    Does anyone use automatic brightness?

    Anyone got CM6/7 - how do you find it? I had CM6 for my Legend but the AB wasn't the same as in the stock ROM. :holmes:

    GPS seems to be weak on CM7 ROMs, weird.

    Phones are slow because they can't render the pages.

    My Hero was miles slower than the HD2 even on the same network.

    If you keep youtubing that 2gb will disappear superfast :p:

    What are the criteria for a message being 'read' on Android? I just upgraded to smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Apollo) so I don't actually know what is going on. When I recieve a message, though, I get the notification in the top bar and I press the button and see the conversation that the message is a part of, but I still have the notification. If I click on the message in the conversation so I am seeing the message by itself, I still have the notification. Also, if I go into my messaging section, the messages are still marked as unread. Am I doing something wrong?

    Also, if it's some software error, does anyone know a decent app that handles SMS? It's quite annoying.

    Never had that

    I'd disable notifications in the main messaging app and download Hancent. It's pretty niffty.

    Can't say anything about your problem but many people rave about Handcent, although I'm not a fan myself.
