    Hi all

    My 1st question ......
    How do i set up email when i get my phone on Thursday?.
    I am on Orange contract so do i have to use them, or do i set it up with my current ISP (BT Internet) which i use on my computer?.

    Sorry if it sounds stupid but i have never used a phone for email/internet before.

    Also what is this "rooting" ?.

    Thanks

    I have got mine set up for virginmedia. I have also got a googlemail account on it.

    Go to BT's website and search for the settings to set it up, its fairly straight forward.

    As to the rooting question. Their is a stickied topic on this forum.

    I originally had separate Virgin, Hotmail and O2 email addresses which i had to check separately.

    I've still got all 3, but i created a new gmail account and it now pulls emails from all 3 of the above into 1 central place. As gmail works seamlessly with Android, its certainly worth considering doing the same.

    If you set up a gmail account (which i think the tutorial asks you too but not sure???) email will work pretty much the same as text messages. Are you new to smartphones?

    Create a gmail account.

    goto settings, accounts and import. Add each mail address/account detail that you want to check/pull into gmail.

    You enter the details under Check mail using POP3:

    Gmail then goes and checks these external email boxes every 10 minutes or so and pulls the emails into your gmail account. You can then reply from gmail as if they came to you direct.

    Works a treat!
