    Is there no chance of getting an update from them?

    Isn't/shouldn't there be a thread dedicated to a possible TSR Android app where we can all discuss it and put forward ideas?
    They held a questionnaire about the possibility of a mobile site/iOS+Android apps a long time ago. The idea was well received and that was pretty much it.


    Nothing (to my knowledge) has been revealed about who would develop the app (presumably a site would be made using the existing web dev team) or when it would possibly become a reality, never mind what features it would have.
    Personally I feel that those who desire this are being really let down by this whole process. It'd happen sooner were the project outsourced to the community itself and a set of computer scientist users were given heightened access to the system (API etc), plus that'd offer a great opportunity for CVs (and perhaps cash) so I expect there'd be no shortage of interest to take part.

    I realise my post ended up a bit of a rambling mess, but yeah.

    Is it not still under warranty? Anyway, try fonedoctors or MobilePhoneDoctor. Since it's a fairly popular phone you should have no problem finding places that will repair it, your only real issue might be price.

    The screen is cracked so won't be able to get it under warranty. Gonna prob sent it direct to Samsung as hopfully that's cheaper than getting it done via o2, also once I do that I will know what's wrong with it so.could get quotes from other places.

    Also on a completely unrelated note, after using my hero again I've realised how crap the internet app is on the s2 compared to this. for example I can actually see what I'm typing in this message and it seems to scale text better. The way the keyboard works is also better, even better than swiftkey i would say. Even unlocking the phone is a lot nicer on this. Saying that I have to wait ages for things to open on this and the screen seems tiny and it doesn't look as good.

    i tried them all, the only one i found good for writing stuff like messages on here for example was opera, for everything else i just tended to use the stock one. Im surprised google don't do a chrome mobile browser, surely it would make sense

    My WM7 phone got barred as the previous owner reported it stolen so they could effectively get a free replacement. Contacted CeX and they'll issue me a full refund meaning I only have to pay £50 for the xperia PLAY. Not the best specs but not the worst either. It should run android fine xD
