Re: How to hide ip
Hidemyass is not good for anonymous stuff, they have no problems selling out their users.
Vpns are good but you've got to trust the vpn, and the only trustable vpn's are the paid ones.
Your best bet for anonymous browsing is Tor.
There is Orbot and Orweb in the play store that do that job, but in order to make full use of the combination you'll need to root your device. (I believe you can make any browser that supports socks proxy to work without root, but transparent proxying requires root)
also accessing the play store and other google services over tor could get your account locked so be selective in the apps you choose if you go the transparent proxying method, don't just use the select all option.
The problem remains that your using a device which is designed to keep tabs on what your doing, and in light of recent developments in the news, probably has backdoors in it which could still be used to track what your doing. I love my android, but i would never trust it with anything when i needed true anonymity.

Re: How to hide ip
I have found that when using HMA the transfer speeds and ping times are way down. They have to be as you are essentially forwarding all your requests and information through another computer and another set of routers. It depends what you are using it for of course, but I find it quite usable for watching movies while out of the country.Living in Puerto Vallarta with my wife and our 3 Kids, N4, N7, N10 and a recently adopted MK808B.
