  1. Mobile Broadband on a Budget (or FREE!)

    I've been using a PAYG sim from T-Mobile in my tablet for a while. If you purchase £20 of topup, then you get a month's free internet: http://www.t-mobile....s-you-go/plans/ Then they do a 6 Month internet booster for £20: http://www.t-mobile....you-go/boosters So for £40 you can get 14 months of internet.
  2. Yes. Not sure about the second Q, I'm guessing that we won't have to wait, we'll probably know quite quickly if this rumoured OTA volume fix comes through.
  3. Yeah, I picked up one PAYG. Haven't even inserted the sim I had to buy, just popped my T-Mobile sim in, and I'm off. :D
  4. USB transfer to/from Linux??

    Sounds like, based on this: http://www.androidpolice.com/2011/11/18/impromptu-qa-session-with-android-engineer-dan-morrill-brings-to-light-reasons-behind-galaxy-nexus-lack-of-usb-mass-storage/ that you need to do something like this: http://soledadpenades.com/2011/06/12/honeycomb-mtp-and-linux/
  5. Flyer on its way :D

    I've been after a tablet for a while to replace the netbook I got rid of when I found I was using my Desire more and it was better for youtube et al. And then I saw Paul was quizzing HTC about Honeycomb, and the price has dropped significantly from the initial £600. even happier I saw this on twitter this morning :D https://twitter.com/#!/PaulOBrien/status/109529957859991552
  6. What is my Pulse worth?

    I just sold mine for £30. I didn't really feel right asking more for it given how flakey they are :lol:

    Yeah, a friend's just updated to it(I'm sticking with FLB for the moment :) ), looks really good in comparison to the Hungarian one.
  8. I just got a mail from Expansys, and Acer have a new Phone out. http://www.expansys.com/d.aspx?partner=modaco&i=200516 Quite surprisingly there doesn't seem to have been any press or talk of it at all!
  9. I'm guessing you've not seen the Android benefits area. http://android.modaco.com/category/428/ben...-stuff-android/
  10. Turn off multitasking

    The thing is, the Android OS does multitasking completely differently to iOS: http://android-developers.blogspot.com/201...ndroid-way.html So it's not really as much of a big deal, or simple to do. There are task managers/autokiller apps that do what you're after, but IMHO make it worse.
  11. Is that confirmed? because AFAIK the Streaks that CPW have been selling were locked to O2.
  12. Orb

    Yes, well if you do it for something like text messages or webpages that's what happens, so it ought to. I've not done it with the media stuff.
  13. Orb

    Settings ->Applications-> Manage Applications-> <what ever the default media app is called> ->press the "Clear defaults" button under the Launch by default section. (or something like that )
  14. Sticky topics - topic :)

    What might be good would be if there was a sticky that had links to all of the ROM threads, that way you pretty much get the best of both worlds, they're easy to find, but aren't going to add loads of cruft at the top.
  15. Reply from O2

    yeah, says it here: http://www.mobiles.co.uk/dell-streak-tablet.html# However they only sell it with contract on O2, so I'm really doubtful too.
