    Is that based on the readout from 3G Watchdog, or something from your phone company? I get slightly worried by a few people reporting that the app's inaccurate. :erm:
    3G Watchdog, but the one month I got close (80%) I checked on Orange readout to make sure wasn't any closer.

    I use the app, never fails me.

    Sometimes check the Orange readout when I'm close to the limit.

    I'm usually in the 90%+range by the end of the month and have only gone over once (deliberately).

    hey guys, haven't posted here for a long time, but I thought this was the best place for it. I have just been asked to help sell my mums iPod touch on the bay, so I was having a play about with it tonight. I've used peoples iPhones/iPods before but this is the first time I've had a long time to get to grips with the thing. I just wanted to see how it compared to my HTC Legend as it is basically the iPhone without the phone...

    I must say, since using my Legend for a year and a half now, Jesus Christ is this iPod unintuitive! no hardwired buttons, no menu screen to access for any apps - just a single settings menu that you have to come out of the application you are on to get to.

    Maybe it's just me, or maybe Apple customers are blinded by the style... But I was always under the impression that the iPhone OS was really simple and easy to use and was a key part of their success.

    Using the iPod has just further confirmed to me how much better Android is.... I would never trade down.

    The purchase won't track until you've fully gone through the order process, but then should show up on your account activity on TCB. After that, your TCB account should hopefully be credited reasonably shortly (could be a week or two) after payment's gone through.

    well on the carphone warehouse website it is £27 on o2 with a free phone and with £40 cashback that will be roughly an average on £25 a month. Thats for 300 mins, unlimited texts and 500mb internet

    All the best deals seem to be with t-mobile (although no directly though them ) and i dont wanna have throttled internet

    Yeah, that looks pretty good to me (assuming you want 500MB data/month). If you have some up-front cash and don't need quite as many minutes, you could make a bit of a saving on one of the tariffs available from O2 directly? http://shop.o2.co.uk/mobile_phone/pa...ng/Galaxy_S_II

    If you find it let me know...

    I got 3G watchdog down now...

    Although there's only a finite amount of stuff i can use because my main number is still on my old phone...

    Also, which is the good free F1 live timing/tracker app?
    Apparently there's a good free one and when i searched i found like 30+ for varying costs and didn't wanna DL crap..

    I don't know if it was free but there was one recommended a few pages back in this thread - here. I haven't used it myself though.

    This x infinity
    But seriously, my DHD broke, the touchscreen just went one night. So I took it to CPW and they had to send it off etc. In the meantime, I had to go back to an iPhone 3G. And dear me its about 10 steps backwards. For one, the widgets. Lovely widgets that display information without opening apps. How did I live before I had them. Then theres the complete lack of real multitasking. yes I know the 3G doesn't have it while the others do, buts its just a fail. On my DHD, I might play a game, press home, text someone, then just go to the app again and its where I left it. On the iPhone, I was playing stickman golf, then got a call, and when the call ended, I wasn't sent back to the app, I was at the home screen. And my 7 holes were lost forever, and I had to do them again. TBH, the only upside, which granted for me is a huge one over the android version, is iPod. Its just epic. No mobile media app compares imo.
    But yeah, all in all, iOS is actually really poo.

    Rather tempted by the HTC Desire deal on the T-Mobile website. Not entirely sure I want to sign up for a 24-month contract including a handset that's already well over a year old, though.

    I have an HTC Hero and can I just say, Android OS is brilliant! I dare say, it persists to surprise me in a good way every time I discover something! Out-of-the-box the phone has a MS Office and PDF viewer, web browser with integrated Adobe Flash player, and an awesome game called Teeter-seeing is believing with this game, I urge you give it a go if you are getting an(or borrowing your friend's Hero ) HTC Hero, see what HTC Sense is capable of!!! :P That's not to say that I dislike any other mobile operating system, but Android is awesome(I have used Windows Mobile and it is awesome too, still to give WM 7 a go!), and also Open Source(like the Linux range of operating systems, first developed in Finland as an alternative to UNIX)
