Hi gifgaff. have a look around this forum and you'll see that the vodafone stuff can be removed by flashing one of the roms available from here. As for updating, it depends what you mean, ICS has been promised by Huawei in the coming months and if you have a look around this forum you will see active development of other flavours such as CM9. As for which one you should buy, that is your choice. If you could try out both I suspect you would opt for the G300. Vodafone unlocks are less than £10 on ebay or you could be really lucky and get a factory unlocked one straight from voda online like I did.

all the best.

Agreed,the galaxy ace is not even in the same league as g300,and it cost more because it has Samsung name.lol
I cannot remember the screen resolution,but I am sure it was a lot lower than 480x800 which is what the g300 has.Also,ace is Armv6 800Mhz & g300 is Armv7 1Ghz there is no comparison really.

root is giving you full control of the phone, giving you administrator privileges.

The only aspects of the phone that wont work are things like movie rentals as rooted phones are barred from renting.

Giffgaff here and no issues whatsoever.

If you have ever tried to use Samsung Kies, you would stay well away. The single worst piece of software that I have ever used and it never worked. GF has a Samsung galaxy Europa which cost about £100 about a year and a half ago. You can get so much more for your money nowadays.
