    Wildfire, it's a really good phone but it has 2 errors

    1:Internet browser occasionally crashes, although all my friends get that on their phones so it looks to be an android problem google refuses to fix

    2:If you leave it running for more then 3 days it goes all laggy making it really hard to type

    Apart from that it's a great phone with a great selection of apps

    In terms of performance, it's not very fast at all, but it's enough, don't expect to play HD video, but that doesn't matter as it doesn't have a HD screen so...

    Got the same phone, try deleting longe messages, I got rid of one 400+ messages long the other day as it was running like a bag of poo and instantly it was much nicer, same symptoms as you with the spell checker. Alternatively get a better messaging app from Android Market Place

    i've already replaced the entire keyboard, and yes, turning it off and on again fixed my keyboard problem, not that that matters now

    TOO SLOW, AAHHHHHH :banghead:

    Who said anything about keyboard lol, I said storing long (200+) text conversations slows it down when typing, this could be your issue, I don't really like deleting my text conversations though for no reason as it's not as if I go reading back through them anyway lol and this does help, also try opera mini it's a lot faster and has a lot more functionality than the inbuilt one.

    Android MarketPlace you have an app in your main menu "Market" that has all the Android applications.

    found it https://market.android.com/details?...sult&rdid=com.opera.mini.android&rdot=1&pli=1

    I am aware of where the market is it's just really hard to find stuff with the inbuilt one

    I'll swap out the default internet browser with this,( Replacing the launcher is a brilliant thing to do on an android phone)

    EDIT:This opera mini is indescribable how fast it is compared to the stock one :)

    Click on search in Market, how hard is that, defo easier if you already know the name of the app you want.

    Yea Opera is a lot better compared to the standard one has some nice features.

    https://market.android.com/

    sign in with your google account, find the app- you want, click install, and it will install on your device

    really quick and much easier to find things compared to the inbuilt market

    Log into your Google account and head over to the market. You need to link your phone to your Google account. Then you can select an app from the market and it'll download it on your phone.
