    Basically I've decided I'm going to unlock my HD2, move to a £10 3 rolling contract and wait for the next big thing.
    I'm going to wait for next weeks Samsung/HTC announcements then decide

    Samsung may be announcing Nexus Prime and HTC are apparently announcing new Windows (:puke:) phones.

    We'll see though. Had a play with the Sensation today and I really loved it :daydreaming:

    MIUI is my absolute favourite (after having tried Sense, stock, CM6 and CM7..). It takes a bit of getting used to because there are some differences to stock Android, but it is definitely the most polished ROM I've found.

    I've got an unlock code for my phone and it isn't working.

    I think it might be either Android or Gingerbread (downloading froyo atm) as any code entered presents a "SIM unlock successful" screen.

    I may have to revert to WM6.5 in order to unlock.. :erm:

    Yeah, because iOS has such variety. At the moment there's the iPhone 4 and... the white iPhone 4.

    Every smartphone looks the same because the interface has proven popular.

    Isn't it laid out on their sites?

    I set it up the day after they announced it

    Can you get proper 3G connectivity? Do you know if it works vice versa (from Orange to T-Mobile)? I signed up for the service a while back but it only worked if I set my phone to GSM only.

    I'm on Orange but find I usually get a much better signal when I choose T-Mobile from the list of networks.

    You get full usage of both networks.

    Not for me. When I choose Orange T-Mobile as my network and select "WCDMA only" as my network type I get "Selected network (Orange T-Mobile) unavailable" and it switches back to GSM auto.

    I just found this on the Orange site:
    http://help.orange.co.uk/orangeuk/su...ersonal/518041

    No indication of any dates or when the article was published or anything though.

    You shouldn't have to select T-Mobile. Once set up correctly you phone will jump between Orange, Orange-T-mobile and T-mobile where it sees fit.


    Just found this... though I swear I've had 3G/H on T-Mobile so this may only be one way: http://support.t-mobile.co.uk/help-a..._ORANGE_SIGNAL
