Default My New Phone!!!1

Right, I just ordered my new contract mobile, to replace my aging Nokia N97. I bought this baby, and it should be with me in a week and a half:



EDIT: Samsung Galaxy S II
2000 mins, 5000 texts and all you can eat Data

Now, I don't have any experience with Android apart from playing on my friends phones, so what do I need to know? What software and games would you reccomend to me?

Congrats! There's a software thread floating around somewhere. I would check out some of the different launchers first to start customizing your phone if you're into that sort of thing.

As for gaming, there are no games for android

Something else I love, the built in app to close programs, and even clear the RAM completely!

The thing I love most about Android is that it comes in any hardware flavor you can think of and you can customize it to your heart's content. New launchers, widgets, you name it! Good choice with the phone.

I was being facetious because Apple is suing Samsung because they think that model looks too much like an iPhone 3G/3Gs.

I gathered you were, I just wanted to input my hatred as a past Apple user, it seems to be appreciated by most on this board

I think it's a bit sad really, Apple are just pissy because Android is gaining market share and has generally become much better as an OS. I know they have their pros and cons on both sides, but an open system is always better than a closed one, with respect to OS's used on phones anyway.

games i would get are:

order&chaos online-it's basically wow on a phone it's iphone only right now but should hit android soon.


Galaxy on Fire 2- it's one of those fly around in space shoot things, upgrade your ship, visit planets, trade goods across planets, mine asteroids for ore, sell ore, make money, upgrade your ship ,kill bigger things kinda games, and it is great.



Game Dev Story- you run a game studio sounds lame, looks lame, etc.. but it is addictive as ****, trust me on this one. there is a reason it is reviewed so highly, it is that awesome.



All the other games I like, I don't think android has, but it looks like you are getting more and more. In a perfect world android would have the quality and number of games ios has, but it doesn't. oh well.

I have heard that game dev story is awesome, but I havent played it because I tend to stay away from games like those that are monster time wasters.

I know what you mean. Problem with 3 is they don't have their own 2G network, they piggyback on Oranges, but they're shutting down agreements with Orange on specific towers faster than they're putting up their new ones, so reception is patchy or non existent in many places.

I managed to cancel my 24 month contract with them after just 4 months because they admitted shutting down the Orange tower I relied on to get a signal at home

If you have signal from 3, its the best and most high speed network, amongst the providers we have. If you don't have 3's signal, your going to struggle.

Got ya self a good deal from the sounds of it, how much are you paying and how long is it?

Well, my friend has already got a new phone on the 3 network and in my town he's always got good signal I should be fine as well, as i'm living in the town centre. So I should have 3G at home, if his phone is anything to go by.

To be honest, I mostly text on my phone so epic signal isn't a massive cocern...

Anyway, yeh my contract is 40 pounds a month, the phone is free as well
