    I'm bored with my phone and ready to give Android another go. Which phone to get?

    Ok so I've had every model of iPhone and 5 Android phones so far (Sprint Hero, European Hero, N1, Incredible, and Captivate). I've had gripes with 2 of the iPhones (2g and 3G) mostly because of lack of features but I've absolutely HATED every Android phone I've owned. Not right away mind you but...

    Which phone to get? Suggestions?

    Vibrant Vs. Incredible Vs. Captivate... which would you choose?

    So I'm finally down to three phones and I need to decide. Now as I understand it AT&T doesn't allow sideloading of apps on the captivate but you can get around this by rooting your phone and the captivate and vibrant root's have been released correct? I like the vibrant/Samsung's screens aside...

    Which phone fits this criteria?

    Ok so I'm really really trying to get into the whole Android thing but it seems like all the flagship phones coming out lately have these crazy ugly skins over top of them which remind me of the old Windows 95 and Windows 98 days where people tried their best to make desktop shells (litestep...

    Possible to link HTC SMS widget to another sms client? (chomp?)

    I love the SMS widget but I never use it because I don't like the default htc/hero sms app. I prefer chomp and sometimes handescent. Is it possible to link the sms widget to another sms app so when I tap on it, it opens another app and not the default one?

    Other than ebay, where can I get an unlocked hero? I know there's a site called 'puremobile' or 'purephones' or something... there was a site that I was on yesterday that had unlocked Hero's for $520 which is a perfect price but I can't seem to remember where that was. :(

    Should I get an Eris or an unlocked Telus? What's the difference?

    Ok so at first I had the Sprint Hero. HATED IT WITH A PASSION. I disliked the look (looked cheap and tacky) as well as the button placement was very annoying. I love the way the original Hero looks with the chin and slick colors... Now that Telus has the Hero with the original look I have a...
