    Just a word of warning if you like to tinker with your devices , the carphone warehouse version of the gt540 has part of the menu that enable rooting removed.

    according to the storage monitor app, my gt540 only has 140mb usable storage memory , and only 56mb of that is free with my currently installed apps.

    So it`s not a lot of memory to work with, and since you need android 2.2 to use the sd card as storage , and 2.1 is most likely the limit of the gt540 unless we get an hacked android 2.2 software.
