    Is it normal for apps like gallery, 360 shop, maps, email etc to just start running again straight after being stopped by advanced task killer? I can't seem to shut them off completely
    Don't use task killers in Android. If Android thinks it should be running then it will keep starting it up no matter how many times you close it, only difference now is instead of it being idle by closing it again and again your CPU will be used everytime it opens an app.

    Yes it is. There's also no advantage to use any sort of task killer. It's more likely to use more battery life than what it would save.

    Ah ok thanks. I've tried 3 different task killers . If I don't activate the data network mode through the power button does that mean it definitely won't be using my data allowance?

    My phone was still playing up a bit so I had did a complete reset.

    Feels like I've got a new phone, and I can finally enjoy gingerbread 2.3

    So much smoother, battery lasts ages now!

    Even though my contract expires next month, think I'm going to keep my Samsung Galaxy S for another year.

    Also, it's perhaps a bit of a 'noobish' question, but this will be my first Android device.

    Will I be able to use Android Market/Google apps and the like with a Google account that uses my own email address, or will I need to sign up for a Gmail + Google account to do so? I'm sure it used to be the latter?

    I don't use Picasa but you could try one of these: https://market.android.com/search?q=picasa&so=1&c=apps

    Well you should know for a fact that the latter will work so it seems fairly obvious that wizard is referring to the former.

    They take a while to calibrate the battery. Both mine and my dads DHD took a week or 2 to start getting accurate battery.

    I have been trying to update my HTC desire. However I have managed to brick it. (wouldn't start up) Anyone have any idea how to do a recovery?

    I have just gotten a Galaxy S II though so I am not that bothered but it'd be nice to get my desire working again...
