    It's a leap year this year
    lol I totally forgot. I remember back on New Year's Eve I reminded everyone, "You do know it's a leap year right???" And now here I am not having a clue! My neighbour was born on 29 Feb, that makes her an 8 year old grown woman.

    Yeah I was excited too but it's been so long I forget why. It seemed quite disappointing to me. My phone's unbranded too but I thought I'd just go for it.

    I've now found CyanogenMod 9 for my SII and it works great - feels a lot 'newer' than ICS on its own did, and has many more improvements + rooted. I'm happy now
    You've put a dampener on things lol
    So far I've not rooted it. The only reason I rooted my older phones was to make them faster via custom ROMs. But I haven't experienced a hint of slowdown on stock so I haven't bothered.

    Yeah same, I may root to get JellyBean next year or so but at the moment I'm happy keeping everything as it is with everything just working.

    I rang fonecare and canceled the agreement immediately the phone arrived.
    Where did you get fonecare's number?

    I've ordered a mobile from affordablemobiles.co.uk and they add this insurance automatically. I want to get it cancelled as soon as I get my phone, but I just can't find a number I can call them on. In their T&C's it says to just cancel the direct debit but I don't want to risk messing up my credit history/rating.

    TIA!

    Their telephone number was on the Fonecare PDF on Affordable Mobile's site but it looks to have been removed. You can try this number: 08454753175 but keep an eye on your bank account as they seem to have a rep of reinstating the DD. Note the name, date and time of anyone you speak to.

    They were very polite and helpful about it, cancelling the insurance policy instantly.

    I really want the onex but I also can't get it on a long contract because I'm 99% going to be in Norway for a year come September.
    Also I may need a new laptop (Air or hires Transformer Prime I reckon) soon.

    DECISIONS.

    Is it me, or just Go Launcher run alot smoother then Touch Wiz?
    It does, but then I wish Go Launcher would allow me to take off some of their animations to make it run even smoother/faster. The 'default' setting for the animation of the app draw is a somewhat slow fade in effect, which just seems annoyingly sluggish despite the fact that Launcher Pro has an instant pull up of the app drawer

    Still love the features that Go Launcher has though.
