Orange are offering a really nice large screen android phone for a great price, so I picked one up for my dad and flashed a custom rom onto it. They have dubbed the device the San Francisco, but it is otherwise known as a ZTE blade (specs on wikipedia)

    Hi! how much better than a pulse is this?

    Thanks I love the site.

    The pulse was terrible. Whereas this phone is responsive, runs 2.1 by default, has a 3.2 megapixel camera, etc.

    You mentioned choosing the Monkey plan because it has free internet and 300 texts but the Orange website says Monkey is just music and texts. Whereas the Dolphin plan is the one with free internet and 300 texts. Or am I getting confused. Which one gives free internet?

    @Falken, Sorry I got confused with my animals I have updated it to say dolphin.

    Ps.On Ebay.UK duds sell it for 120 -140£ still not bad:D

    @superMeat Custom roms are usually better supported and updated much faster than the service providers can achieve. Also gets rid of the stuff that the service provider put onto the phone, all their branding etc.

    @macgreg Yeah great price/performance.

    As you can see by now, Father Z, it isn’t just you. However, I don’t think we should give up on iBreviary or warn pelpoe off of it. Give don Paolo a chance to get it working better.The Divine Office app has its problems once in a while, too. For example, at the moment, I am looking at it and seeing no prayers available for today. I wish that either iBreviary or the Divine Office folks would add The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary (1961) to their offerings. I use the Baronius Press edition but it would be more convenient if it were on my iPhone. (By the way, there are a number of translation errors in the Baronius Press version. While the publisher provides a one-sheet insert to fix problems on two of the pages, there has been no errata sheet sfaik to fix the translation problems. For example, throughout the book, pulchra ut luna is translated as fair as the morn instead of fair as the moon .)
