    Well the Topic says it all, I am going to be the Proud owner of a Black Desire in a few days :)

    Well before i get the phone i thought i could browse around for some cool tunes/wallpapers and stuff and get ready.

    Anybody got any recommended sites i can go to for ringtones/live wallpapers and other stuff?

    Also recommendations on widgets and applications would be nice.

    Thanks guys....

    Thanks for getting back to me, checked out the site. It just says wallpapers, what about those Live Wallpapers? Can i preview them on the PC?

    I've heard Live wallpapers kill the battery!

    Heard and read about that, i think in the long run i'll probably end up using a static wallpaper.
    In the beginning i'll most likely try out a live one as I heard it's really cool :D

    Do you know what! I haven't even tried one out - how bad am I...although my desire has currently died, not happy! :mad:

    Live wallpapers do use battery power, but for me the novelty soon wore off and I only use static pictures now - not because of the battery drain, but because the static images are actually far better and there's a significantly bigger choice.

    I have the aquarium live wallpaper and I love it. It does show up on the battery use statistics but never at more than about 2% of total use so I can live with that.

    You may wish to consider rooting the phone (flashing it with stock firmware) considering it's from Orange.

    Michelle666 : I'm sorry to hear bout that, hopefully you get it fixed soon.

    Eris Ed : I think i'll be in the same boat as you :p

    snowmobile : Gosh!! I can't wait to see how it's like.

    Mik3h : Orange? Mine will be unbranded :). I'm still considering rooting or not though :thinking:

    Where did you get a black Desire that's unbranded? They're only sold by Orange.

    I'm from Malaysia and I'm getting my phone through a Local Bank here. I asked for Brown but they said they only have Black.

    I'll be sure when it comes what the colour is :)

    hahaha....good one. I guess i should have been more specific. I'm getting the phone through a bank cause I'm redeeming points for it. Points+Payment so I pay less :D

    In my experience, if there is any difference in battery life it's negligible.
