Harris you and i should talk, if your Wildfire worked excellently out of the box and still does that is news to me, because mine has been pretty intolerable and it pisses me off because it could have been a phone that would be perfect for it's price range, but i just cannot stand using it.
Wildfire S is only like 100mhz faster last i checked the specs, i wouldn't buy it because it sells for over twice as much as the original at the shops here.
they want to sell it to you on a plan.
Personally i just don't like the smaller screen, the keyboard is smaller than ever, it's smoother and all, but it's too small.
I might go for a Legend or Desire
Did you know WebOS might end up on HTC phones? that would be sweet.
