    My dad's about to buy an Orange Monte Carlo, or possibly a wildfire S. What do you guys think of these two? tbh, he's more of a casual phone user so he doesn't need all the gadgets. The monte carlo is £50 cheaper than the wildfire S (which is ~£200) though, is it the best phone you can get for £150?

    3G watchdog is very accurate and works brilliant on my S2

    Do you have many apps installed? Some apps that ask for network access basically connect to the internet and update or whatever without you knowing.
    I have that now but I really want an app that sees which other apps are using how much data so I can see which apps to uninstall/limit

    Hmm you would have to look around then. Possibly the watchdog paid version might have that.

    Anyone else having a problem with the latest Youtube update? I have a HTC Desire and ever since I installed the update the app just doesn't work at all. It installs correctly, but when I try to open the app it says 'the linked program is no longer installed on your phone'
    So I have deleted all updates from manage apps, and it works fine but it is the very basic and old version which is really buggy and ****. I have installed the new update several times but encounter the same problem each time.
    Any way of maybe installing an older update? (Previous one worked fine)
    Delete the shortcut and re create it. I assume that if you open it from the app list, it'll work fine.

    I'm guessing they mean screenshot apps (like DroCap).

    Guys, I have netcounter installed on my new S2 but something is consuming vast amounts of data and as I'm on wifi its ok but I'm worried that when I switch to 3G it will still do it. Are there any apps that monitor how much data each app is using
    Go on giffgaff, get unlimited mobile internet and don't worry about how much data you use.

    Assuming you mean the taking of screenshots...

    You can only do it if your phone has the feature built in (not many do) or through the Android SDK.

    The software development kit. I've not sued it personally to take screenshots though so you'd be better to google it.

    Yeh, as G8D said, it's not easy to do.

    What phone do you have?

    The SDK approach mentioned above probably isn't what you're looking for: it's only something that you can do whilst your phone is plugged into your computer; and will require downloading a relatively substantial amount of software.

    HTC Legend. I just find it really strange that theres a BB app screenshot app, but not on Android

    My keyboard has been bugging out for days now (not rebooted to fix it).

    Initially the "hold period and select common non-alphanumeric character" window was invisible.
    Then the entire keyboard was invisible and didn't rearrange the text box when in landscape mode so I could type by memory and see the screen as it would be were the keyboard not open.
    Now the keyboard is completely black, still usable but just a black mass.

    Kinda cool.

    Yeah I am

    It's nothing compared to what's out there these days, but it's powerful enough to provide a satisfying Android experience.
    I kinda want the Samsung Note :moon:
