Hi Daniel

Just to add to the above you'll need to install Flash from Google Play as well but this is straight forward!! (No crack needed)

As it happens I've just been watching 'Have I Got News For You' on BBC iPlayer on the G300. Just download the iPlayer app and Adobe Flash both from the Android market and away you go. No cracks needed.

Okay cool thanks;. Also can anyone confirm a presense of a HSUPA chip? downside to the blade was the lack of HSUPA (Fast upload speeds)

Yup, this phone does Flash natively, and BBC iPlayer works excellently with no stutters; I have watched Have I Got News For You, Doctor Who and Russel Howard's Good News on it so far.

Also, as for HSUPA, yes it does have it, speeds up to 5.76Mbps :)

I dont think that site is too reliable. For example it says the blade has HSUPA. where it does not

Sorry man, from what I can see from their website, it has WCDMA, not HSUPA :/

If you have one you can test it, Download the speedtest.net app and run a test. if it passes 300-400K you have HSUPA Also pings will be lower.

I don't live in a 3G area, so wouldn't be able to confirm till I went to work tomorrow morning.

Most networks restrict upload speeds to prevent peer to peer sharing and the like. One way of testing it would be on wifi I imagine. Take the network provider out of the equation and you will know for certain.

Kilobits or Kilobytes?

If its bytes, that should be HSUPA should it not?

Only t-mobile and sometimes vodafone do this (And orange) and no that wont be a way of testing. as wifi is completely different to 3G..
