comment How to monitor tethering bandwidth
@mahemoff: Do you have to use a special tethering app? Because usually a mobile network operator can not distinguish between traffic caused by the smartphone and a thethered computer. I only know special data plans for computers using a second SIM card (and own UMTS modem) on the same contract - but that has nothing to do with tethering

comment Is there a way to create virtual memory?
@James Litewski: That is a partition used by the system for storing memory sections that have been long time not used which disburdens the main memory. It is the Linux equivalent of the Windows file pagefile.sys - if you know what that is.

comment What info does Google backup?
When I used the app restoring feature the last time I observed that some of the App downloads failed as they sometimes do in the Market. The problem is that the Market does not retry to download those Apps. Therefore after a restore you have to carefully check the notifications for failed downloads and retry them manually.

Then you should use the flight mode and disable the mobile network completely. The SIM PIN is a good protection.

comment How To Protect Mobile Internet Access?
@Boris_yo: Of course you can not set a password. Apps managing APNs simply automate what is available in the settings dialog - which is accessible by everyone. Therefore a password does not much sense.

comment How to Securely Delete Data from Phone and Card
I don't think that you need "physical internal access". Android is basically a linux system and on rooted phones you can have access to everything, even the partitions on a level below the file-system. Additionally using a recovery-ROM and tools like nandroid it should be possible to extract the data stored on the partitions.

comment Getting the features of HTC Sense in vanilla Android?
For testing a Stock Android you can use the Android Emulator that is part of the Android SDK. Then you will see and feel the massive difference.

comment How reliable is ICS face unlock?
There must be a fall back mechanism - just imagine you are in a dark room... Front cameras usually don't have a LED flash and without the camera doesn't see anything.
