It will answer all your questions. I had already rooted my phone and installed a custom ROM. No need to worry. It works fine and some advantages are there. Overheating issues reduced and battery backup becomes longer. And after rooting you can easily get rid of bloatwares :))
What kind of Anti virus are you guys using?? Did you uninstall mcafee or you just remain it as one of ur apps??
[deleted post]Your right, ICS uses more ram than Gingerbread, im also closing some application specially when i turn my phone on, those unwanted application that automatically run in the back round at start up to save ram, but ICS uses 60% in os alone,, (no apps)

Subrata Shuvro, 07 May 2012@james79 >> If you don't mind, are you from Bangladesh?Uk mate! Sorry! We can get black live for £90 and white for £99. Both on pay as you go deals but sim free has to be shipped in!

If I got live rooted and installed a custom rom off xda would I ruin my phone? I dont understand rooting properly and I cant learn about it because everyone ive met says dont do it like its some kind of sin or something! Where can I learn more about the process? And how can I stop the risk of phone overheating once ive done it? Ive only been using android since december but im a fast learner. Rooting is only thing I dont know but ive heard it can work to your advantage especially with getting rid of bloatware that gobbles up your ram!
Raghu, 06 May 2012Go Launcher is amazing :)Yup! Go launcher is good but sometimes forces close! Try launcher pro and let me know what you think! I use launcher pro and find it simple but easy to use! Only downside is you have to go through menus to uninstall apps!
james79, 07 May 2012Arc s, ray and neo v are in the process of getting ics now! Live and the rest of 2011 xperias ... moreYour right James79, i have to agree with you, i already get ICS update in my GF's Arc S and it is laggy indeed, if this is the case then, even though they will release the ICS for the live, guess i'll wait till it is stable, and as i noticed, ICS uses a lot of resources almost 60% of the ram compared to Gingerbread,,

robcixx, 07 May 2012Hey guys, when can this phone get ICS update? I'm still waitingArc s, ray and neo v are in the process of getting ics now! Live and the rest of 2011 xperias are next! If sony keep to their word like they have with arc s etc then we are getting update at the end of may or early june! Be patient as this process once started may take between 4 and 6 weeks to get to us! I will be waiting to see what people think about update because there are some negative comments from people whove updated there arc s and this has 1.4ghz on tap! Weve only got 1ghz so if ics is laggy on arc s then what will it be like on live?

If you use the phone like a laptop then battery will last like a laptop - not very long lol! Some are saying lasts a day and half but I use mine too much to get that. Theoretically I think phone can last nearly 2 day if careful!
