>Almost rumbled by a star by the stars and stripes

>Thanks to TRavis, Lisa, Matt and Colin in the USA.

Our sign up process in our Android client automatically sets call forwarding to HulloMail. We tested our sign up process. Man we paid some good cash to do it on Device Anywhere. It worked.

We then asked some good friends in the USA to test they all had probs with the call forwarding. Hmmm, it works in the UK and T-Mobile USA is a GSM Network and Device Anywhere in the USA is telling us it works.

Let face it this has to be ironic? The USSD on GSM we use in the UK is **004*xxxx. Not in the USA. On T-Mobile USA is *004*xxxx.

4th of July. Boston Tea Party – did someone try to rumble us 😉

Phew… Thanks guys for all your help….

>New HulloMail Android app drops tomorrow

>The brand new version of our Android app goes live tomorrow. In addition to a slick new user interface, registration can now be done within the app making signing up to HulloMail even easier. Visit the Android Market to get your hands on it.

>We love the new Vodafone HTC Magic

>Today I took delivery of the new Android mobile phone, the HTC Magic, available from Vodafone in the UK. The phone comes with the latest Android OS – 1.5.

It’s a very nice phone! Great design, thin and light – it feels and looks high-end. Although I’m a diehard iPhone user, I’m also a diehard Android fan. The combination of the HTC Magic and Android is a tempting package that could lure me away from my iPhone. It would probably succeed if the email client was on a par with the iPhone’s.

PS – The phone does not like “+” in a USSD code. If you are setting diverts using USSD and using international number format (which is how you should do it) then replace the + with 00 in the UK.
