    I'm finally going to install the new ROM tonight (probably tomorrow actually). Any advice?
    Which one are you installing? My advice is: follow the instructions to the letter. Best of luck!

    Official.

    I'm scared of rooting (I believe that is the term) my phone. I love it and don't wanna break it.
    I can only reiterate what Carl has already said really. Though it's not hard at all for the official one.

    Haha, I'd hammer my 500MB a month if I used Spotify. I'm happy sticking with my iPod for music though.
    Whats the 500mb usage like? I'll just casually use it, email, facebook, youtube etc.. does it get used up quickly?

    I find out about my unbilled charges. It was an 08 number and voicemail. I haven't been charged for data usage and I use a lot! I'm always travelling and using the web/streaming music. It seems T Mobiles unlimited data is pretty unlimited!

    You'll be more than fine, I've left 3G on since i've been at uni and only managed to use <250MB this month. That includes loads of web/email/facebook.

    The Devs already have it... Motorola Droid is the first phone out with it on, that's coming in around a fortnight. Hopefully HTC will get on it and make a Sense UI with Eclair ROM for us by mid November...

    Then all we need is Flash! :woo:

    Edit: HTC are saying they aren't going to do Donut for the Hero, and are skipping to Eclair instead.

    The fact that Droid is already running 2.0 means that HTC most likely already have their hand on it and could make Sense really quickly :O

    Gensoid works fine. Playing some classic Streets of Rage 2. They seem to have updated the Virtual D-Pad and you can configure the buttons yourself making it actually usable
