    Hi Peter

    I'm also in Australia. What carrier are you with? Did you buy the phone out right or on a plan? Here are some apps i have so far which i like

    App Protector:
    Allows you to have a motion to unlock certain apps. I like the setting that allows you to have a unlock for say facebook and sms but if you unlock sms it won't ask you for the unlock for facebook unless you lock the phone first.

    Brightness Profiles:
    Allows you to set preset brightness levels, the auto brightness chews through your battery so this really helps

    SMS popup:
    Lets you set your sms notification to turn the screen on when you get a message.

    hi declan
    i got my HTD desire with Vodafone , on a handset only plan as i have a contract with Vodafone already they did me a great deal $25 for 24 month for the handset only .So it cost me only $600 .
    i just have to wait till next week to get it unlocked for free with Vodafone

    Nice one. I bought mine outright and am using optus at the moment. My contract is almost over but i'm unsure as to whether i'll go with optus again or vodafone. It seems as if the mobile data settings on optus aren't getting along with the desire HD to well. I have tweaked with the settings which has helped but its just not as good as i would like it to be. I just bought a vodafone prepaid sim with 500mb of data so i'll see what its like and might make the switch.
