comment Phantom Multimedia Message
Rather late in the day, but here's a thread about the same issue - it does sound like it's related to Orange UK's voicemail, and possibly was specific to HTC phones running Android 2.2? forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=609019

comment android network provider always returns longitude value as -1.0E-5 but latitude value seems ok (e.g. 37.56003)
I don't think this is a programming problem?

comment How can I change the default search box to use another browser?
I had the same issue, it also meant that other apps such as Twitter, Facebook etc would launch the stock Browser app instead of Dolphin.

comment Why do I have to set lots of my settings again after a phone reboot?
It seems you're right, I've had exactly the same issue on Cyanogenmod 7, with SwiftKey and Twitter. I think it might be a bug in the apps in question - I'm pretty sure it was happening with the Facebook app as well but that seems OK now, so possibly recent update fixed the issue.

comment Installation Error
I've had the same issue on my HTC Desire (with the default OS install), with the error "Couldn't install on USB or SD card" when trying to update apps that had been installed to SD. Removing .android_secure/smdl2tmp1.asec as per Jan Willem's post fixed this. I'd suggest retagging this, since it doesn't just apply to cyanogenmod or rooted phones.

Excellent, that does the trick. If I can get this question transferred over to my ownership I'll mark this accepted, in the mean-time, have a +1 :)

You'd think so, but no, Google Listen doesn't support that yet.

comment Where's the best place to report bugs with the GMail app?
As per the comment in the thread the GMail App isn't part of the Android OS project.

comment Where's the best place to report bugs with the GMail app?
Hmm, I found someone had already reported the issue I'd found, but someone said that's the wrong place: code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=12373

comment How can I view title text for a web image (xkcd.com) on an Android based browser?
Cheers, that's helpful but unfortunately the hover suggestion doesn't work in the case of xkcd.com - maybe because the images aren't links? The app is a reasonable workaround for now though.

comment How can I edit or remove people from the favourite contacts widget on my HTC Legend?
I think this might be a bug to be honest - I'm on 2.1 still, I'll investigate further and report it if it's not fixed in 2.2.

The People page does list the favourited people as belonging to the group "Favourite", but if you edit the contact then "Favourite" isn't one of the listed groups.

comment How can I edit or remove people from the favourite contacts widget on my HTC Legend?
I have the same issue on my HTC Desire - I think adding a person via the widget adds them to a Favourites contact list but I don't see any way of editing this list (I don't seem to have the same contact list ui that you refer to - my People list doesn't have stars in it).
