I know this has already been asked but apparently you can not turn it off any more as of 2011?
(recommendations of dell streak ?)
The streak is crap, i had one for 3 months when they first came out on o2.
I got rid of it before it got froyo, but 1.6 & 2.1 were absolutely woeful. Dell haven't got a clue when it comes to phones... and the support is non-existent.
The actual phone (HW, size, screen etc) i liked, great for internet, but it was so buggy, even things like screen lock didn't work properly. I very much doubt things have changed.
I must've found a new bug daily!
Trust me, out of the 2, go with htc. (the dhd comes with 2.2 too, had it 3 months before the streak!)
And even though the streak is classed as a tablet, i'm fairly confident it won't get gingerbread, let alone honeycomb... which is actually for tablets!
I got the distinct impression that 2.2 would be it, & no updates or bug fixes!!
Just get a different launcher, there's loads of 'em.
Ps - the gingerbread launcher & keyboard are out for rooted & non-rooted. The former can be got from the market, the latter from xda. You need to be 2.2 for launcher & 2.1+ for keyboard.
