What's wrong with lightsaber sounds?! I have Yoda's "Message from the dark side it is" for messages and Imperial march for ringtune, so lighsabers are bound to be OK! :)
Good for you Forrest... :P

As amusing as it is to watch "Star Wars kid", people wanting to wave their phone around as it makes lightsaber sounds... Anyway, having a ring tone you like or similar is fine, but I just mean that I mostly avoid apps that I find useless or moronic. I'm only interested in useful apps.

@FullAuto: I have SMSbackup+ and a few others in your list, but I'll check out the rest. Thanks for the heads up!

Also, good tips on Appbrain and ROM's. Thanks!

You're welcome, matey.  Get the most out of that phone!

In one of the most insensitive announcements in recent PR history, T-Mobile UK is telling its customers who want to download or stream online video to their mobile devices to "save that stuff for [their] home broadband." The carrier, one half of the UK's biggest operator Everything Everywhere, had up until now offered one of the better monthly allowance deals with a 3GB data consumption limit on Android phones.

God damn it am I jinxed or does God hate me.

EDIT: Then an about turn!  For new customers only.  Existing customers before Feb are okay.

:) AAHAHHAA, that's moronic. Though I can see myself doing that.  :) And I'm not even an SW ueberfan!  :P

I just want to be a knight in shiny... That's enough about me.

I designed a little orange jumpsuit for it to wear but it staged a dirty protest.

Best Android Wikipedia app, anyone?

Incidentally, if anyone needs it as a decider, the Desire has a flashlight function whereby the camera's LED functions as a torch.  Ace.

HTC Android! I'm jealous ;)

I'm on a crappy Samsung GTS5230, not nearly as good as it looked the first time.
Next phone I'm getting next year is bound to either be Windows Phone (my first choice), or Android.

The new windows phones look pretty meaty.  Some very respectable specs.

Good work though Thor, I did wonder if it was real but then remembered reality isn't that kind.

My phone's already come in very handy, and I can set it becoming indispensable quickly. Even came in useful at work, which was never supposed to happen.

Had fun with a bug in swype. Had to enter an app, change input to android keyboard, then switch back to swype. Still in beta I must remember.

gStrings is handy if you're a musician. Gmote is amusing, for using your phone as a remote control for your PC. Wifi analyser if you like using those wifi connections people keep leaving everywhere. Screenoff and lock is okay but doesn't apply the security lock, just the screen lock.  Distance Calculator is no nonsense and does what it says.  Convert Pad provides conversion rates for just about anything, very comprehensive.  Handcent looks like the best for SMS if you want more and more options. K-9 Mail is the best for handling several different email accounts (saves you using several different email apps at least), loads more options than the default.

Not found a great browser yet. Opera is quick but a little odd, Firefox is unstable, Dolphin I dunno about.

Edit: Wireless file transfer is smashing, too.  Does zacly what it says.

CPU tuner/CPU Boost are free alternatives to SetCPU.

Juice Defender works well!

Arc Media Player for playing common video files.  This cuts out having to convert them just to watch them on your phone.
