    I finally decided to take another course in my world of mobility, and switched from nokia n8
    to sgs2. I mostly love my new phone and you have dozens of things to do with it. Anyway, one interesting thing occured as i explored the world of android. One rather silly problem. I hope that im wrong but is it true that you cant for example search the internet while downloading update to a game or such? I mean, cant you use 3g for multiple purposes at the same time or am i badly wrong? And if i am, then how to do it?:)

    you should absolutely be able to do that. I'm able to download an app from the market and then open the browser and browse the web (or, on AT&T, make a call at the same time).

    you do not need to do anything special for this.

    I always multi-task while downloading/updating apps. Just hit the home screen and do whatever you want to do. The status bar shows you the progress of the downloads.

    Thanks el presidente for welcoming me and the rest of you of quick answers. Im reliefed to hear that it is possible. It seems my 3g connection aint enough then. Still though on n8 it worked with my 3g, slow though. Anyway for now problem seems to be solved:) need to test it with wifi somewhere.

    Anyway thanks all and if its a habit in here to close threads, then please do!:)
