  1. Cisco Kid added a post in a topic Nexus 4 price dropped to £159 and £199   

    ordering the wife one now coz her sony ray is tiny and so slow/unclear in comparison.
    she says she only needs the 'cheap' one but I know she'd be the first to complain when it got to its 8gb limit. 16gb or nowt.
    personally i'd like to hold off for the n5 but i'm with ezablade - 5" screen puts me way off.
    mobilefun for covers exactly the same as mine.
    so tempted to factory reset and restart exact same time to see if she can spot the difference.

    £14 for the puck isn't too bad but I use a USB extension or good old fashioned power cable to stretch that little farther at about a 1/4 the price. I'd still think about one if a little cheaper. As for the light issue, similar to TST, tape is a good thing to use. The full beam dashboard light on my van has a blue light that blinds you at night so I used a little square of opaque sticky back tape to mute it.

    no sims work in fone-wifi only access
    Donk, did you get your huawei honour 8860 sorted??
    Just looking at this just now as had the ics on russian, norwegian & now the french one. All ran fine for me but probably didnt use absolutely everything.
    Everything was fine for months until 3 days ago, downloaded runtastic via freeappoftheday on play then nothing.
    I have no reception etc
    only wifi works for the phone to get anything.
    i'm on giffgaff so tried everything including rebooting/new apn/different sim but the phone is just not playing ball.
    EVERYTHING WORKS APART FROM SIGNAL
    NOT rooted yet, stock only.
    tried diffferent rom versions but keep getting failure on loads.
    seriously peed off.
    anyone out there had similar that i can go through anything else??

    many thanks

  7. Cisco Kid added a post in a topic Huawei Honor U8860 ICS updates finally start to appear   

    Cheers P. Why wasn't the like of that on power etc? See thats what happens when there's no instructions with phones these days and you don't download them either.
    Why only camera & unlock options on ICS instead of the multi options on GB? I would've thought it be the other way around unless to keep it clean.
    I did get Norway on my phone eventually but I think the old card I used had Swedish Spring or similar on it from my Blade unless it's supposed to have the Huawei logo then nice silvery android logo doing its shine? I don't think so. Looks good though. No problems so far other than the ones I create through stupidity and ignorance (no comments please!!)

  9. Cisco Kid added a post in a topic Huawei Honor U8860 ICS updates finally start to appear   

    I'm using the B923SP01 as well but I could have sworn I thought it was to be Norway. I can never get Norway, it's always 404 error but that's it downloading now.
    It's ok but my Slide-it keyboard seems really sluggish & laggy on it and I swear by it normally. Deleting is very awkward as takes half a dozen deletes to do only a couple of letters.
    I'll try Norway or maybe German later to see if thats any better. Does anyone feels the touch has to be really firm compared to GB? Also the screen is very low level light compared to previous but if thats to save battery then just take it off auto I suppose. At least this has facebook proper on it compared the the Huawei Stream rubbish (I'm not a devout follower so don't judge me but it IS very handy sometimes - monthly posts lol).
    Rooting - anyone succesfully done this as I've not tried with it as only just got it and want to do it with a high success rate? I can't afford to brick and waste money.
    I'm really glad I didn't buy the Sony P as that was the other 4" screen that almost had my money. I was tempted to hold off for another ZTE but needed a replacement for Blade and did not want larger than this screen size.
    thanks to Paul & good luck folks

  10. Cisco Kid added a post in a topic Does anyone have this phone?   

    just got one as a blade replacement as was getting seriously peed off with it being pants for internet connection (CM7 on giffgaff).
    must say i do like the honor as i didnt want to get anything larger screened than 4" and i didnt want to go down the 'Fony' route...
    i've had a few fony erections thru the years and whilst they are good (i got my wife the Ray) i wasnt that excited myself. so u8860 here we come, nobody else has one - i dont care.
    so far i love it, would have to root it after a few weeks i feel but now looks like i may have to keep it stock. this is a temporary fone for the next year when i will want something a little better i imagine - hopefully ICS update will come before then..
    i'm running FTL launcher pro which is good with ADW themes.
    only thing is, facebook app on the honor cant find my info so i had to download the market one. this now means i have 2x fb on the fone!?!
    eh?
    folks - anyone else had the FB issue & how to get around it??
    i do miss CM already especially the screenshot function :(

  11. Cisco Kid added a post in a topic Cut your insurance premiums with an Android app   

    after being rear-ended by an aviva customer, i tried to get back the money from getting myself back on the road. 5 complaints later in a year there was still no reply back so I had to take them to the FSA. only then did i get an acknowledgment/investigation done.
    so this is not for me but i did request this via them years prior when it was in infancy stage for the blackbox thingymabob. i never did hear back from them at that stage when i was a long serving customer originally with NU.
    shame really.

    Done the mileage for dock & charger now, only just realised I should've done wifes at same time for when we get the 2nd car...doh, live & learn.
    And remember the money wont be given til you take out insurance.
