    I wasn't too sure from the images that I saw before getting mine, but love it now!
    Agreed. Saying that, I'm yet to find a phone that looks as good in the pictures as it does real life.

    Hmm. I'm very tempted. Shall just wait a week or two to see if TopCashBack offer £101 cashback on this month's deals as they did in May.

    My HTC Desire Z just decided to delete all my texts, for no apparent reason. Checked and I definitely don't have it set to delete when my inbox reaches x number of texts or anything. So sad, I had things I wanted to keep there.

    Edit: Ugh, apparently a recognised Android issue for over 2 YEARS? http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=5669

    Depends no one really knows. Having all your messages deleted has been a problem with nearly all phones across time. It used to happen abnormally more to Desire HD owners so this could have been a sense problem. It happened to me three times earlier in the year, however since I've been running custom roms and thus don't have a HTC sense account, it hasn't happened at all. So I guess take that as you will.

    Just make sure you have sms backups. I use two, Sms backup+ and Sms backup and restore, the former will backup all my messages to my gmail account and the latter to a file on my sd card.

    What ROM are you running on your DHD? :holmes: I'm having Wi-Fi related battery issues with mine and the developer doesn't seem to want to acknowledge them.

    Yeah, I never bothered with a Sense account so it's not to do with that. Such a pest, this is the 2nd time in about 3 1/2 months it's happened. Shall be installing sms backups tonight although from doing some searching, a lot of people seem to have equal trouble getting backups to restore after suffering this problem which isn't particularly reassuring!

    Lol my DHD is pretty screwed atm. I have davlik and some other partitions in EX3 and data in EX4 so it's kind of freezing and being unresponsive . Once I get time I'm going to put Android Revolution HD back on, I'm using Leedroid atm though. You?

    Hah, I'm on Android Revolution HD and was thinking of trying out LeeDroid. Maybe I'll try one of the less popular ROMs, although I'm a bit scared I might end up in your kind of situation if I go to one that uses EXT3 rather than EXT4...

    Why on earth don't you have automatic text backup?

    I'm happy that we've been able to get some really high overclocks. I'm at 1.8ghz with Lee kernel. Really weird because even at these high clock speeds the governors are so good that my standby drain ranges from 1-4Mah. Means I can easily get through a day and 2 days on light usage. Yeah there does seem to be a lot of new smaller dev based Roms out there now, I should probably check them out but the problem is generally all the Sense roms are offering the same thing, clean, light, fast sense.

    It's hardly essential for most users.

    I haven't tried any other kernels apart from the one that comes with ARHD which I think is the Buzz 1.2GHz kernel. I don't think I've any need for any higher than that. Before these battery issues I had the same type of drain as you mentioned but now today it dropped 17% in 6 hours with no use at all. I think I probably will give LeeDroid a shot since I've already got EXT4 formatting so I shouldn't have any problems with that. I'm also tempted to flash some of the Sense 3.0 mods too. I particularly like the look of the lockscreen and weather combo.

    anyone know a good keyboard app. The keyboard on my GSII is nowhere near as good as the htc one for suggesting words and doesnt have things like commas as secondary functions (long press)

    also anyone know how to refresh the page on the browser or google search when already on a webpage such as bbc for example

    on my hro it was easy, scroll up to the top and hit the refresh button or press the search key but the GSII doesnt seem to have these

    You should be able to find an HTC IME mod for your phone, though I can't help you locate it.

    Swiftkey is by far the best keyboard in my experience.

    What is the difference between voice command and voice talk on the Samsung Galaxy S2?

    I've been messing about with them and I'm not sure how to use them, or how far I can use them and I'm not sure what happens when you choose "Driving Mode"and stuff.

    I asked google, I didn't get anything useful.

    Thanks...and I love my phone, my first smartphone. I'm not longer a smartphone virgin.

    Did I say anything of the sort? It would seem pretty essential if you have important messages you can't afford to lose.
