    I know for the Aria, Captivate, and X10 you cannot just download apps from your computer, only from the market, are all their phones like this? Its was pretty annoying with my Captivate, hopefully they dont do it with the Olympus and other better Android phones, I think they will though....

    I have my T-Mobile Motorola Defy working on AT&T's 850 band for 3G. It allows for non-market installs...FWIW.

    It's probably going to be an ongoing AT&T thing since it's based upon corporate attitude, not on the phone. However, others step up to the plate to address these restrictions. On the Captivate, for example, there were two different ways to sideload:
