It's the spirit of community that makes giffgaff special - it's all about helping each other out. It's in this spirit that we launch a new series, Ask The Expert. The basic idea's pretty simple - ask me questions about the topic of the week, and I'll do my best to provide useful answers to the most interesting and popular questions.

 

Our first topic will be one close to my heart - the mobile operating system produced by Google, Android.

 

Whether you're trying to choose a new handset, want advice on an app or even need a bit of friendly troubleshooting, I'm here to help. As well as specific problems, you're also free to ask more nebulous questions about upcoming Android devices or Android's place in the mobile ecosystem. I won't be able to answer everything, but I'll certainly do my best.

 

Please submit your questions in the comments below. If you'd like to suggest a topic for next week, you can do that too.

 

I'm really excited to launch this new series and I hope it goes well. Thanks for reading, and I hope you take part!

In your opinion, what are the biggest kernel flaws in ICS?

Why can't you root a work phone?! I would have thought most competent workplaces would REQUIRE that...

Any real world examples of security risks from installing custom ROMs and apps on rooted phones?

Thank you for your consideration's. My instincts are to NOT send it for repair and pursue a different strategy, Your reply has given me food for thought and I will sleep on it and decide in the morning.

I'm looking for a phone that has everything on it.. so far I was interested in the s2 but its like everyones got it, i heard new phones are out like the one x, one s, nokia lumia etc... dunno which one to buy really -.-

The one x is the best and the most powerful phone available out there at the moment, its quad core. See giffgaffs own review about it here - http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Blog/HTC-One-X-review/ba-p/3769409

I have an htc wildfire with wifi hotspot for gaming on ps network and my giffgaff let me do that for a week and a half,Then I can't even use my wap.I have messaged giffgaff a few times in the last 2 months with no reply,they are not very helpfull with there customers,change of network again I think!!!
by mitchell2010 on ‎11-04-2012 21:55
@terry the reason for that is probably because giffgaff has cut off your internet because tethering isnt allowed on goodybags.

You're not allowed to use tethering on the unlimited data goody bags, so that would make sense.
