    I used "BlackEclair", you need to be rooted though.
    I am back to default now as it's awfully nice looking.

    If you don't want to root then go ahead an update.
    It would be whatever brand it was beforehand and it shouldnt take your unlock.

    Before you download it will ask for your S/N number anyway. If it doesn't match the phone then you need a different ROM :P
    You might as well wait for 2.1.. No benefit from the most recent updates UNLESS you are still on build 1.76 instead of the newer 2.73

    Ahh, shame you didn't get it like just over a week ago. You got a free lifetime subscription (for that handset) when you signed up before the 31st March :p:

    I used the blank scene when I got my phone as it made it quite easy to set it up the way I wanted it but I haven't changed it since about october so not really

    Yea I edited and saved one of the scenes but now I'm running out of space for stuff, mainly widgets, so wondering if to start using different scenes or am I too excited with the phone and the novelty will wear out.

    You may just be excited. I haven't bothered with scenes since I've had my Hero (end of Feb).

    I recently downloaded ringo lite from the market. I am able to setup custom ringtones and sms tones but when I shut down the phone and start it up later the settings are erased and I have to set it up all over again.

    I thought it might be my task killer so I uninstalled that but the problem still persists.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
