So I was thinking of switching to an android phone from my wm phone and I just want to make sure it can do everything I need. So my questions are: I dont have broadband where I live so I download big files on my phone then transfer them to my puter can I do this with an android phone? Will it download any type of file? Can I choose where to save it to? Can I view and extract rar and zip files on the phone? Can I view all files on the storage card even if they are not android files? Can I watch any type of video file? Is there a torrent client app? I think thats pretty much it. Thanks

You can always move it while connected to a computer. Alternatively, you can download Astro File Manager or another file manager to do it from the device. That's the nice thing about Android, you can find an app for pretty much anything.

Yeah, through applications. Also, if you plug it into a PC and use it as a mass storage device, you can rearrange anything anywhere.

Is there a torrent client app?

There may be more out there.
