    Welcome to AndroidTablets.net


    The community on our forum are a great group of people that share Android Devices as a common interest, and the use we put it through every day. Some of us have extended knowledge and experience with computers and Android systems in general and we're all here to help to the best of our ability. This forum is all about Members Helping Members.

    Before you start posting, please read these Guidelines. If there is anything that is unclear, or if you're in doubt please feel free to contact one of the Moderating team here at AndroidTablets.net.

    Please Note: This is a privately owned forum. We, The Owners and the Moderating Team, reserve the right to accept or decline your membership application, so you are not guaranteed membership and your membership is subject to revocation. We reserve the right to declare what is suitable and what is not on AndroidTablets.net.

    Advisory: All posts on AndroidTablets.net are to be in the English Language.
    Any post that is not in English, will be deleted.

    7. Do not promote and advertise your affiliated websites, domains, companies, or services in any of the discussion forums. This includes starting a thread, replying to a post, or putting it in your signature. If there is any content on your webpage that solicits fees, we may have reason to disallow it. If a member is seeking assistance or looking for a certain type of product, the best way to offer your services is to send a PM. The only way people are allowed to advertise on this site is of they are paying to do so, upon approval. Please contact the ADMINs if you wish to become a Supporting Vendor.

    8. Promoting other Android related forums in your posts, signatures, or in any way on the forum is not permitted.

    Note: These Guidelines are subject to change as we see fit.

    Except for Spammers, We will make every effort to notify you if you are not following the forum’s Guidelines. Moderators and Administrators have the final word.
