    I have had my HTC Magic on Vodafone for a month. I think it is great, so great that my wife's arrived two days ago and I am trying to get her up to speed.

    I do have a few questions which I would love someone to help me with.

    1. GMail - great application and synchronisation but I don't seem able to see attachments on the phone (even with a trial version of office viewer installed) when using the built in Email. If I use the GMail app I seem to be able to download and view files. Is it possible to get access to attachments with the IMAP setup?

    2. WMV files - there seems to be a limitation to the size of WMV file the media player can cope with. Is there a better app for this. Doesn't have to be free.

    3. Flash player - I run and cycle and use Buddy Runner to keep a training log which is great on the PC but despite the routes being uploaded from my Android phone I cannot see the log because it requires flash player. Is there an alternative to Adobe's flash or does anyone know when Adobe are going to release its version of flash for Andoid?

    4. Music - I copy and pasted some music from my PC but some will not play on the media player. Some of the stuff will be normal MP3 but some may well have been ripped by I-Tunes. Is there a more versatile medi player which can cope with more formats than the standard player.

    5. What are donut and cupcake?

    6. Is it possible to copy text from IMAP emails for use in SMS?

    I have searched the market place for apps to meet my needs but either can't find any or find too many to be able to get the ight answer.

    Can anyone help with the above?

    An answer to your #3 is Adobe is working on Flash for Android ... but no firm timeframe ... but as all rumors go some hope is before the end of 2nd qrtr of 2010 ..
