    Well, I have got rid of my 3 month old Windows Phone 8 which drove me nuts, and gone back to Android. I am now a proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy S2.

    Now one of the problems I have living where we do (in the countryside) is lack of reception to the Orange network. So I was hoping to take advantage of their 'Signal Boost' technology. Unfortunately their app is not on this phone as it is not a branded Orange phone. In fact it is a previous O2 only phone now unlocked and on my Orange account.

    Is there any way I can either get this app or another one that works with the Orange system?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Look here.

    Generally, you can find apps by searching in your favorite search engine and including APK in the string.

    Thanks for that.
    I have actually been doing some 'Googling' but I must admit that I think adding the .apk on the end helped!

    DONE IT anyway. Nice one. Got the zip file of this from XDA Developers forum and installed it via Recovery mode. Just done my first test and it worked a treat!! Woohoo.

    Love my Android all the more now!

    Microsoft, stick that in your pipe and smoke it! :p
