Question New guy looking for help with android marketplace

Hey, this is my first post on this forum so im new to all of this.

I've bought an android phone from china which will be delivered some time soon. It has firmware 1.5 but im not sure weather it has the android marketplace on it. If it hasn't is it possible to have a ROM or something of the android marketplace to put on it? And can i put apps on it via a PC?

Also, i was wondering if you could mod the phone to firmware 2.1 and have the android marketplace on that!

OK, thanks for any help. Its greatly appreciated and if you have a solution, i would like to know a website which lays it out step by step.

buying an android 1.5 from china was a bad move from you, there is no way to upgrade that 1.5 and gods knows what you will find in that rom and software.

wait until it arrives and lets as know
