    I thought o2 was the only network provider without a reasonable limit on unlimited internet?
    Umm not sure. That's what I pay and get to be honnest. It's not too bad. I checked the terms and coniditions before using it so I think that's correct. :p:

    This one? Touching faces goes to contact card for me. I have to press the icon on the right of each picture to do the default actions...
    hmm, no mine doesn't looks like that, its similar, but instead of having two icons side by side, it just has a picture with a little phone icon overlaid ontop of the picture? Why don't I have this app. Do I have outdated firmware or something? I only just bought the phone.

    My firmware version is 1.5

    build number is 2.75.405.66

    I'm running MoDaCo custom ROM atm, but I got the same behaviour with whatever build came on my phone in the first place... How odd!

    That is weird. I have emailed HTC about it, as I would much prefer your widget and thats the one they have pictured in their guide. Whats the benefit of running that custom ROM?

    It's a little less laggy than the original ROM that was released by HTC. There's not much benefit over the latest ROM tbh, though it is rooted, not that I use that much at all. The only reason I have it is that it was released before the official update and I'm impatient!

    Yep, pretty much!

    the only notable difference I have is a fancy animation when changing orientation!

    Fair enough, I won't bother then.

    I found out that aparently the people widget changed on the latest rom update. The version I have is the newer one. Personally I prefer the older one.

    Has anyone been able to watch a video podcast on android? I'm trying to do it through Acast, but every video podcast is configured for the ipod and just gives me the message "Cannot play video". Any ideas?

    It's quite awkward. There are instructions here.

    I have never done this though, so I won't be able to help you if it goes wrong. The screen I posted above I found on the net.

    There may be an app that does it too, but I'm not 100% sure.

    You on the Magic IIRC?

    If so, Android 2.1 can be installed if you fancy hacking your phone a bit. There's a guide here.
