    Hi there.

    I'm sorry to stick three questions down in one post, but I have just ordered a Hero (Expansys in the UK) and I wondered whether anyone could help?

    Firstly, I imagine that I would be able to view iPlayer on my phone, but I am not certain. Does anyone know?

    Secondly, I again assume that the phone will sync perfectly with Outlook? I have always used Windows Mobile before and of course that does, but will Android?

    Thirdly, can anyone tell me whether I will be able to drag across AAC music from my iTunes folder on the desktop and will it play? (I am really talking about non-DRM music.)

    Many thanks, in advance...

    bbb.

    :)

    OK here are my views on the three questions

    1 As previously suggested get the (free) Beebplayer from the market. It works very well and can play BBC TV and Radio. Watching in wifi is good, but using 3G will depend upon signal strength.

    2 HTC Sync sort of works in syncing Outlook, but, frankly it is not as good as on your old WM phone. It can sync contacts and diary fine, but that's all. It won't sync email or tasks I am afraid.

    3 Don't know I am afraid.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think the Hero supports AAC music. I've always stuck to MP3 format, as it seems to work on every music playing device ever.

    Re. the music question: I've downloaded MediaMonkey (as recommended on another thread somewhere here) to my computer - it retrieved all my itunes stuff (seemimgly without affecting itunes at all - it all looks the same) and I was then easily able to sync to my nexus.
    I'm very pleased with Mediamonkey - I'd tried to sync the phone with Windows MediaPlayer and got absolutely nowhere - it was driving me nuts - but Mediamonkey was perfect first time.

    AAC files play fine but apple lossless files don't.
