You can't get any easier than the Wonder Machine for sideloading:

i tried sideload machine. the prob is that when i save the app to my comp all i get is a file cabinet and htc sync and sideload wonder machine cant find the file. i am having so many probs. i wish i could just find a way to block the restriction and just download it directly to the aria bc that is how its designed to be downloaded to the phone.

the url to get it is www.cpr.cc its a long story, but i need this on the phone. it downloads under a false name of a photo viewer, but its actually a recon app that copies texts and sends them to my secure site. i paid a lot for it and when it downloads directly, it downloads as a signed .apk. so itll work on the phone, but the phone wont install after the download bc of it being a third party app

I got my Aria (Asian, can load apks) yesterday, it is super smooth, but strangely, my Aria seems to be smoother than my friend's HTC Legend, any idea why?

I've had my Aria for a month now, running 2.2 since I got it. LOVE IT!! No complaints. Dumped my 3Gs and haven't looked back. If I get another phone it'll be a Desire, and yes there are North American GSM Desires. I just wish there were more Aria forums like there are for the Desire, maybe in the future if AT&T would advertise the thing.....

no third party apps. It's because of ATT. I know. Stupid, huh? I think things would go better if you rooted.

Anyone tell me why the HTC Aria's experience is smoother than my friend's HTC Legend? When they are almost the same specs.

Hai2all!

As a CS major with serious hots for computers & networks, I've somehow been neither a gadget guy nor a junkie for new technology. My Motorola V195 (cnet) worked/works just fine, but finally I realized I could use better input, voice recognition (only with data?? surprising...), GPS (<3), maps I can look at even w/o GPS navigation, and the ability to Wikipedia anything, anywhere, anytime.

So let's put it eloquently: I am seriously like, all wet & shit over this "phone" / GSM+GPS-enabled von Neumann machine running open software. Them HTC-ers sure know good hardware design; and Google's OS, surprise of all surprises, is so marvelous I can't yet praise it what with expecting nothing less than its unintrusive function & speed. (Sense is cool too, that zoom+refit in the browser is totes win).

Speed is marvelous, I see no lag at all. As Ms. Senior-Editor at engadget said (blanking on her name... young east Asian woman, does a lot of good reviews), it proves once again that Hz aren't everything. I wonder to what extent having to paint less of a screen helps out?

Size is perfect: this isn't a PMP, so if it weren't enough that Swypers often outperform people on physical keyboards, at 5'11" / 160-lbs with slender piano fingers I have no problem with the keyboard in either mode. Conclusion? Light & small in my pocket with no input problems. Why, then, would I need a 4"+ device?

Aesthetically, I'd love to get at&t's ugly-ass logo off of the phone's upper-right-hand corner... and I was gonna rant & rave about AT&T's prepaid data plans, American vs European carriers, why locking a SIM card turns babies everywhere into cultists, &c. &c. But I'm sure you all already know this.

Hello everyone, I am a new Aria owner and I am extremely pleased. Now time for some rooting. Oh, also for lying to AT&T tech support: "Hi, uhh, I unexpectedly got re-assigned to an office in Europe and I need to switch to Vodafone, pls2give free unlock code?" [edit: it didn't work, had to buy one, bah]

Just had AT&T overnight me an Aria yesterday cause I'm fed up with the third Captivate in a row that I've had turning itself off randomly. I know a lot of people look at the Aria as a lesser phone, and in a few ways it is... but I'm actually looking forward to the smaller form factor more than anything. As long as everything else works well, that is. I've come to realize i don't NEED a powerhouse of a phone, as long as it still serves all the functions I want it to. Hopefully the Aria should do just that. Can't wait for FedEx to show up today!

I have both the Aria and Captivate and switch back and forth between them. The only thing I don't like about the Aria is the quality and size of the screen. From a functionality standpoint, it's leagues better than the Captivate.
