    Flash has ICS support.
    Sky Go as well as not working on ICS also won't run on a rooted device.

    Annoying. I do watch the odd bit of football.

    generally speaking it will have a 2 year warranty as they are supposed to last the duration of standard contracts. Payg should have at least a year. They may want to send it for repait though rather than give youa new one

    It would be very very tough to get your money back unless you bought the phone within the last 28 days

    yea, only worth going into an orange store if you bought it from the store, AFAIK Orange keep their online and shop businesses separate.

    I've been looking at some of the free apps and games on Android Market, and it's quite worrying just how much information they have access to. Even the top rated ones want your location, phone details, personal information - essentially it's all glorified spyware. I avoid downloading the free apps as much as possible but some are really quite useful. Is there any way to stop them data mining though?

    If you're rooted, download 'Permissions Denied'. It's able to block the permissions of most apps. There's also 'DroidWall' to block Internet access to specific apps.

    Thanks. Unfortunately my Galaxy S2 is not rooted - have had it for less than a week now and I've not yet looked into the process of rooting and whether that would cause any contractual problems with Orange. A lot of the software that's piqued my interest requires a rooted phone though. Would you recommend it? Is it difficult?

    Yeah, in terms of the increased functionality you get over the phone I would definitely recommend it. It's really quick and easy; I used this guide to root mine.

    You can also unroot if you ever needed to return it.

    Cool, was just having a look at that guide myself. Will have a proper read of it when I'm next on my laptop. One thing that might cause an issue is that I only have Mac OS but I could probably use a friend's Windows machine if need be.
