Try and keep the list limited to more unknown apps, everyone knows what facebook and angry birds are!

APP LIST

Everyday usefulness:

  • Do it tomorrow [/b]- App for writing up tasks you need to do today or tomorrow

My buddy has an HTC Evo4. Sickest phone I've ever seen. I think I'll get an Android eventually once I get a job.

I've had a Sony Ericsson k800i since it came out

I just don't think I'll have any use for one of these hi-tech phones. Not that I could afford one anyway.

well i got a 3 year plan, saved me from a 450$ phone to being 80$, but really at 2 years in you can get a full discount on a new phone and the 2 year plan was 350$ so it only made sense to get the 3, however im in Canada so everything will be different if you arent from here as well

actually thats pretty cheap for how advanced this phone is.. its the best android phone in canada right now, (well tied with samsung galaxy s i guess) and with the 3 years it was 80$, an iphone4 on three years is 180$ i believe. and the motorola milestone(really just a motorola droid) which is alot worst is 100$ on a 3 year here

i got the student 55, so 1gb data, like 250 minutes, a myten(put any ten canadian numbers on my plan and i get unlimited minutes and texts to that number) and a few other things on it

My andriod is great. I think it's the G1.
Simple to use, good for apps.
The only problem is you can't set it to vibrate when you receive a text for some reason.

The hardware on the hero is very outdated. If I were you I would get a newer phone. You won't be happy with the lag/lack of power. I have an eris (same thing) and it's fine only because I rooted it, installed 2.2, deleted stock apps that run all the time, and overclock it. Newer phones are smooth without doing this.

Open up the messaging app. Menu>settings>notification settings>vibrate>[always, only when silent, never] choose only when silent.

trust me, bbm is not worth it, i just had a blackberry,

only a select few ppl have bbm, and the only plus it has is you can see if the text has delivered and been read, other than that there is like barely any apps, the phone takes over 5 minutes to start, and it is laggy as hell.

tell her to put you on a myfive plan or something.

Literally everyone here has a Blackberry tbh, no one uses msn and i'm told that and facebook chat is how people keep in touch... guess im not in touch with the kids of today haha.

But the qwerty is a plus, touchscreens just have slow typing imo.
whats myfive plan? (i'm british)
