    Hey guys, I'm about to pull the trigger on the Desire and just had a few questions hoping you guys could clear up.

    1) I've been reading the best deal with a good data plan is from T-Mobile through quidco and mobiles.co.uk. Is the 50 pounds rebate instant?

    2) If I root the phone will the Sense UI still be on there?

    3) I've read you can get the unlock code from T-mobile after a month of usage, is that free or do you have to pay? And if I do pay to unlock it, it'll be unlocked for forever right?

    4) I've been trying to get a concrete answer, hopefully somebody on this board can help. I have some Korean songs, will they song names display in the music player or show up as boxes? Somebody told me I would have to root the device and add language packs for that.. are they hard to find?

    Sorry, this is my first android phone so I'm a complete noob at it. Thanks for any help!

    Rebate will not be instant. You will have to pay the first months charger then T-Mobile will deduct however much the rebate is you get off the following months until its covered.

    I.E.

    Also rooting the phone will automaticly void warranty and insurance if you get it.

    Thanks for the answers guys! Just one more thing, i'm a bit confused with the terminology.. rooting = flashing new firmware?

    rooting the phone gives you access to the system files
