    Hi there,

    I got my g2 recently and it's great but I am having a few issues. Everytime i make a call, these stupid adverts seem to come up with a picture of the android character doing something and an advert above it (as soon as i start/finish the call) and I have to press the home button to get rid of it, anyone else experience this? Can I get rid of it?

    Also my reception is not very sporadic, one minute i'll have 3 bars the next it will say I have no reception at all and can't do anything, any tips? I am also in london so shud have good reception.

    Any help much appreciated

    Hi their :D

    You haven't by any chance got an app called taps 10 or taps 300 or taps -{ Followed by a number}???

    If so simply uninstall this app and this should sort it for you

    H there,

    Thanks for the reply. No I don't have those apps, but I had another camera app begininng with D and that was the cause, after I unisntalled the adverts dissapeared. This I think is one of the problems with the android app store, it is too unregulated, this type of stuff shudn't be allowed.

    I've come to the conclusion that t-mobile is a rubbish network too. I am in North London and my reception is very volatile, and will often just cut out out. Every one in my house who is on orange, and 02 and also before when I was on vodafone all have full reception in my house. Not good...

    With T-Mobile you can check what your signal strength will be at various locations (home,work,a friends house), you can do this on there website. Also you get a 7 day money back guarantee if your not happy with anything.

    I have the same problem and I'm not sure which app it was. Which app was it for you, Sera83?

    I can't actually remember to be honest as it was a while back, some game or task manager I think. Very annoying though...

    Yeah it's always best to check what the app your downloading uses on your phone.
    And of course ask yourself 'Why does a camera app need the internet?'

    I'm on T-mobile.
    And I know from now on i always will be.
    I get excellent signal AND the customer service is by far the best i've ever spoken to

    You should count yourself very lucky then, my t-mobile reception is horrendous. I am in North london and can't even get a consistent signal in my bedroom. Call drop outs are frequent, or calls just not even starting when I try and bell a contact, and even in covent garden the other day I couldn't get signal. I am seriously considering moving to orange as when ever I am on the internet on t-mobile it also ends up hanging...very dissapointed with the sevice.

    Was on vodafone for 10 years with no reception problems ever, and they actually offered to match t-mobiles sim free offer but I didn't want to unlock the phone and change settings....wish I had now.
