From what I've read, their smartphones aren't any less locked down than other carriers...

And yes, the Milestone will be on their new HSPA network (joint with Bell) which uses SIM cards and should theoretically be unlockable.

...f00d, the last Telus phone I touched had its Bluetooth locked down. o_o

Maybe they've changed, but still... Ew. Telus.

So... I finally got a new phone.

Image

T-Mobile's new HTC G2. :D

I'm now one of them smartphone owners... and this is the reason I didn't broadcast at all last week. :P

Yea, I know, I don't live in the states, but since we got WIND Mobile which is on the AWS bands, I decided to nab an unlocked one and jump from my old crappy provider to my new awesome one.

800 Mhz of Qualcomm Scorpion goodness... apparently overclock'able to 1900 Mhz... though... most people OC this thing to 1400Mhz or so... though I don't plan on doing that.

Also, APPS. Anyone on Android know of a few good apps or things to get?

Anyone else nab new phones recently?

Nice phone! I got rid of my old one for a few months, and decided I needed it back. So I have the exact same phone I had. I'll be working on seeing what I can't do for a smart phone at some point. I'm really looking at the Droid X, though.

Hmmm... looks awesome, but knowing you, you're gonna root it, right? :D

I actually just rooted my G2. The permanent root process was finalized the day after I got my phone in the mail! Rooted it instantly, and I'm planning on installing CyanogenMod ROM when they finalize a version compatible with T-Mobile's G2.

Yeah, definitely gonna root it. It'd be useless otherwise. xD

Huh? What does 'root' mean?

I have a cell phone, but kinda lost it...(for the last week...T.T) So, now I feel lost, can't text, can't call, can't etc. It's so sad, it was an LG-chocolate 3...but, wherever it is...well. It might be making LG-chocolate babies. >_<

"Rooting" allows you to put applications onto it, make modifications to it, and do other things with your phone that the manufacturer wouldn't allow you to otherwise.

Not exactly Tetromino. It's geekier than that.

It's more like, getting access and running Terminal commands on your phone, like DOS or stuff, or access to the protected sections of data on your phone. By rooting, we can change the clockspeeds of the processors on the phones, to downclock when the phone is idle and overclock when in use, to optimize the phone's capabilities for example.

I don't have a phone :(. But I really want one. I think my parents might be getting me a phone, but I'm not sure if they are, or when I'll get it. I would rather live without them instead of going insane without them because I don't want to lose my sanity. I've also seen people go insane without phones, and it's really creepy.

I finally got around to getting a phone just this last week, a BlackBerry Curve, got an excellent plan and discount, sadly no browsing for me.

3G, Social Plan, $35 a month for unlimited BBM, text, Fave 5 #s, MSN, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace. I now have something to do while on my bus rides :P.

OK, I think I'm getting a phone. YES! Since I'm going to high school in August, I might get a phone. If I do, then it'll most likely be a BlackBerry. But my parents both have iPhone 4s and their plan only costs them 140 USD a month because both of the iPhones are like a pair. But, if I get a phone, my dad says it'll cost them another 150 USD a month. They're using iPhones, but they still have their BlackBerries. They only really use those if they're traveling out of the country.
