    I'm no expert on his either but I found a couple of your answers already from playing around. I have a Flytouch 3 with Android 2.1.

    It's easier to answer question 2 first: I assume you are talking about things on the home screen. If you hold your finger on the icon and wait a second tili the tablet vibrates slightly a trash can will appear on the right of the screen. Keep your finger on the icon ad drag it to the trash can. The icon will turn red, let it go and it should be gone. You can also use this metod to move icons to different places on the screen (other than to the trash can).

    Question 1: Yeah mine had China on it when I first turned it on. Couldn't even find Australia on it let alone my city. I just removed it altogether as per above method. There are other Weather Widgets in the market for free. You might find one with your area in it.

    As for Question 3 and Skype, sorry I haven't used it so I can't really give you any advice on that.

    Good Luck.

    Skype is very dodgy on the 2.1 interface. Try getting the update: here and Skype gets a bit better. As for 3g dongles I'm not sure but I'll go on record as saying that your best bet is really a 3g hotspot vs dongle. I know it's not always possible or feasible but it's going to work the best for you with the least hassle.

    Thanks for your advice Cheers

    Ok so the big question is this rooting thing, is it worth doing and how hard is it to do bare in mind Im a newby to android.

    If I brick this My missus will kick my teeth in and shove the tablet where the sun doesnt shine (she bought it for me as a gift) and i must say what a gift, I love it, its awesome.

    Im sort at a loss as to what the benefit is for rooting these things.
    Would you do this to you tablet??

    It's not very hard to do and very little chance of bricking the tablet. Basically you're going to open up the ability to do full backups of data and apps and make deeper tweaks to Android if you so choose. Right now I have a few games on my tablet and my daughter plays them on rides here and there. I have a Titanium backup of all the data and apps so if she screws the pooch somehow I can just recover and keep on moving like nothing ever happened.

    I ordered mine last week and I should have it by 03/30/11. I'm checking out all the apps and info so I'm ready when it arrives. I got the Flytouch3/SP2 with 2.2,7000mah bat,2.1 camera and it says flash 10.1. I will make a video when it arrives and post it here.

    Please do as I wonder if there are good versions of this FT3/SP2. Yours has the higher spec camera and battery. How do you tell if the battery is actually what they say it is? As I have read before the battery is horrible and I found that out yesterday as it drained while off, I read you have to hit reset.
