    I could never find it in Android 3, i always ended up having to find a proxy app for people who wanted to use the schools WiFi

    Any idea when (or IF) this will be available on a Virgin mobile deal?
    I have an upgrade due in February.

    I Dont think any network has any exclusivity deals on it, so i can't imagine it being too long before its avaliable. Virgin seem to have most of the common popular phones

    Can I ask how much you paid for the phone?

    did you buy it out right or contract?

    how did you get a decent contract?

    I got a decent contract deal (after threatening to leave o2) 800mins, unlimited o2-to-o2 calls, unlimited texts and 500mb data for 32 a month including free insurance

    I told the guys at o2 about a t-mobile deal i saw on buymobilephones.net and the put me through to disconnections so they could try match it and it ended up a better deal

    edit: forgot to put the handset cost me 11

    I had a play with one the other week. It's a really nice handset with an awesome screen and ICS is a cracking update. Makes Android seem so much more cohesive. As others have said the size of the device (and lack of an SD card slot) put me off in the end though.

    Thats my one gripe, no SD slot, however upon investigation, the SD slot is absent because the space is occupied by the NFC modem/sensor set, just need to wait for googlewallet to work in the UK if it doesnt already and you can use the phone to pay at mcdonalds or other places that do NFC payments

    That is a tad annoying, but doesn't it have 16gb on board? I could live with that...

    yeah 16GB onboard and it picks ups up straight away as an MTP device, no messing about changing the usb mode on the phone

    How does it handle a Facebook feed?

    Friendstream is the one thing that has kept me on a Sense ROM for so long. Is there a suitable replacement in Android 4?

    There is a facebook widget that you can put onto one of the home screens, it seems to work ok and the facebook app itself refreshed very quickly on wifi and on 3G

    I also have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
    It was my first smartphone (The phone I had previously was some 5 year old brick that did nothing much apart from calls and texts)
    I was a little concerned over the size of the phone before I ordered, however I've grown to love it.

    For a lady or even a man with small hands the phone may be a bit too big, but for me it’s fine. It's light and feels good in your hands to hold, and I don't really notice that it's in my pocket. The screen is excellent and I really love it. Having a big screen and running at 720p reso it's very easy to navigate and good for watching movies etc.
    Older androids might of had these features...I’m not sure, but I like how everything syncs. My bookmarks sync with Google Chrome which is what I like the most, and then the same with contacts, photos and other stuff that I forget.
    Battery life seems good to me. Currently my phone has been running on battery for 9 hours and it's at 65% battery capacity, although I haven’t done anything too taxing on the phone, just emails, sms, web browsing and playing with a few apps. Still seems fine to me.

    The people's app on ICS is nice because it has all your contacts and then you can select the contact and swipe across to see twitter updates etc. from that contact.
    I like the phone lots and could say lots more about it. I'm happy to try answer any questions and test stuff out if you need as well.
    Only minor complaint might be the sound. At times it feels like the sound could be a little louder but can’t because it's already on max.

    My contract is with T- Mobile
    Length = 18 months @ 25 per month
    Minutes = 300
    Text = 300
    Internet = Unlimited

    It cost me 159 for the handset with 30 cashback, so over the 18 months it costs me 579 including the price of the phone.
