couldn't find a phones thread.. thought i'd plonk it in here. Looking at getting an android phone and was wondering how do you back up the phone? Been using iPhones since they first came out. is there an app like itunes that android users use to back everything up?

The sony xperia z, spec looks good, and the waterproof/dust proof swung it. Its just the hastle of sorting contacts, calenders, new apps etc etc.

Sync your contacts on your iphone to your google account, and then if you get an android device and use the same google account you should have all the same contacts.

Cheers byte, Samsung would suit as just bought a Samsung tv and they have good connectivity. Waterproof was a bonus though as do lots of stuff where phone can get wet

Bit of a noob question but are there any downsides to jailbreaking?

Warranty is void, but you can always restore to original before sending back to apple

May need new sources the key ones you need are:

Cydia.xsellize.com
Sinfuliphonerepo.com
Repo.insanelyi.com

In addition to itransmission (download torrents) you may download usenet/nzb files use the PhoneNZB app

Also get ifile it's like windows explorer for your iPhone

And finally get ipastore
