    Decided to take the risk and upgrade to 2.3 on my desire, didn't take to long and it seems to run faster and smoother. Couple of nice little add-ons aswell, no sense 2.1 though
    If you're rooted you can run the LeeDrOiD Desire HD Port which has an optional Sense 3.0 add-on. I've noticed it is a little slower though.

    Well... yeah... PAYG must be more lucrative than I thought (saying that, I haven't used / looked at PAYG for years, so I've no idea any more...)
    Sim-only contracts would likely work in a similar fashion to PAYG I suppose. They are quite popular too

    Yeah, got it just pre uni iirc...

    Oh no, I've just remembered that I lost two phones last year...so I'm guessing I only got this after I lost the second one, so a few days after new years...

    8 months and you're already thinking of upgrading?

    What about the SanFran's feelings? Ever consider them? :huff:

    If you have so much to burn why not buy an off-contract SGS2 or the next big thing?

    £500 would buy you a beast

    It is quite a commitment though.

    I have the same problem as you, money that needs to be spent. I would love to buy an Android Tablet but tbh they're not good enough atm.

    Even the Asus EEE Transformer? I've heard that's pretty good.

    To be honest Honeycomb isn't finished. Google haven't released the source code because they didn't want just anyone porting it to any device and as a result giving Android a bad name. I have more faith in Ice cream though, which should hopefully be the release of a new Nexus style tablet.

    So as soon as I decide that I'll definitely get a SGS2, I discover that there will be possibly a S2 Plus released in a months time... :facepalm2:

    Where did you hear this? And what could they possibly do at this time to improve the phone?

    It's floating around on the interwebz. It had always been suggested that there would be a version of the S2 with NFC technology, but there are a few reports stating that the S2 Plus will have 1.4Ghz and NFC so that it can compete with the iPhone 5.

    Hardly worth waiting for.
