Friends & I enjoy playing words-with-friends because it's a) asynchronous/turn-based, so we can play throughout the day without having to find times we're both free; and b) cross-platform, for android & iphone. What other games that fit those two categories should we try?
I have an Android phone - T-mobile's MyTouch 3G Slide, to be more precise. How can I make it so when one particular contact text messages me, I don't get a sound or a vibration? I'm happy to download an app to make this happen, if there's not a native way.

I'd like an explanation for how to turn off all data while roaming, except for push email. This includes anything that the GPS might use as well. As for emails, I only want to receive the body of the email and not have the phone download any attachments without my permission. I'd either like a good link or instructions for both an iPhone 4S and a Samsung Galaxy SII (Android). Thanks very much.
I manage a non-profit in New Jersey and often need to make a large number of calls in a short time to supporters, clients and/ or donors. I like to set up a to do list of calls that I can run through and just make call after call to get through my lists as fast as I can. I have an HTC Thunderbolt phone. I've tried to do lists, but none of the ones I've used are not tied in to the phone dialer. I want to be able to click on a phone number in my list and have it call up the dialer. It'd be awesome if it also tracked my calls on Google Calendar. If there is a to do list app out there that connects to the dialer on Android then I would prefer to use that. But if I have to I'll keep my to do and call lists separate. Thanks!

I'm searching for a lowkey unobtrusive but interesting ringtone that won't draw looks of ire from those around me. I know this has been covered on ask.mefi before (in 2006), and, indeed, I ended up with one of those ringtones on a long ago now dead phone. But six years later, most of those links are dead, and we've moved from RAZRs to iPhones and Androids. So what's the latest and greatest in non-annoying ringy-dingys for our phones? [more inside]
