    Hi guys.
    I was wondering, I'm trying to find out how I can put all my contacts on my SIM for if/when I get a new phone... is that possible? I went to export contacts and it only gave the options of to/from SD card and from SIM... any ideas?

    And that would get rid of touchwiz, rather than just keep it 'hidden'?
    It won't get rid of it as Touchwiz extends beyond merely the launcher (though it's not as intrusive as Sense). For example, the music app, the dialer, camera and a few other apps are all part of Touchwiz, and it also comes with Social Hub, Music Hub, Reader Hub and Gaming Hub which are all pretty much useless in my opinion which is why my phone has a custom ROM on it that removes most of the Samsung extras.

    If you're asking whether Touchwiz will stay in memory, then in response to that the Touchwiz launcher won't.

    On a side-note I thought I'd share this as some people may be interested:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1294108

    The new music app from Android Ice Cream Sandwich has been leaked as an APK. The interface is much more modern than the old AOSP one and I haven't noticed any issues but use it at your own risk!

    Uhh, is there any reason you aren't syncing the contacts over Google? One of the best things about Android is how it will store your contacts with your Google Account which can then be resynced with any new phone you get.

    i agree with the above, just make sure all your contacts are saved as google ones unless you are planning on switching to a non android phone

    I find 2.3.7 alot faster on my San Fran than 2.3.3 was. The market especially is a lot less jerky.

    Anyone seen the new Music app? Or even installed the .apk?

    Pretty sure it's owned/run by Phones4U so I'd guess it's reliable, but if you do a quick Google it's got mixed reviews.

    Presumably. Afaik Honeycomb has it, so seeing as Ice Cream is the next iteration it should also have it.

    Used to, not any more. The best you can get is their internet prices with first 3 months half price and a small discount from upfront costs.

    Maybe I can pick some of your brains for a sec. I installed CM7.1 a few hours ago, but have had consistent problems with the dialer. Calls work fine.

    Basically, when the call ends, I feel the vibration, but the screen does not wake when I take the phone away from my ear. It doesn't wake with the power button either, the screen just stays off. The only way out of it is to pull the battery, or plug it in to charge (the phone wakes once it's plugged in).

    Wat do? This is pretty damn annoying, I cant keep pulling the battery every time I make a call. Should I try reinstalling the CM7.1 zip? Did I accidentally the whole thing?

    Edit: nvm, sorted it out.

    Well, which phone do you have? Did you do a full wipe in CWM?

    Motorola Defy, it's the official 7.1. I did 'wipe data/factory reset' (i think that's what it said), then did wipe cache, then installed the .zip. After that I rebooted, and installed the google apps .zip, and booted up properly.

    I dont think it was a bad install, everything else is working flawlessly (apart from maybe it seems to be charging awfully slowly).

    edit 2: Maybe wiping the dalvik cache will do something?

    edit 3: Negatoro, wiping dalvik did nothing.

    indeed.

    It's only legal on a wireless network you operate though, so like a mobile phone signal blocker that schools sometimes use- it's only legal in a premises owned by the school. But who cares.

    Got confirmation of the dispatch of my Sony Ericsson Xperia Play xD

    Yeah I read that last night and was like "When's 10AM HKT in BST" and when I worked it out I was like "**** that, I have a 9 am, I can read the news over breakfast/get up a little bit earlier and watch it" :p:
