    I cant play any of the preinstalled games. Pops up that it needs to download some stuff but only works using wifi. I dont have wifi in my home since i dont have internet except on my phone. Now i gotta go find a source somewhere

    hmm, that's weird. i remember i was able to play most of the games without any wifi connection. I was at the mall when I first turned on phone and activated the phone. My friends and I were playing asphault 6 and star batalion right away in the mall. i got the phone through fedex delivery.

    yeah i just dont get why you have to have WIFI to do the update. Why it cant just use the 3G. its only the games that run with gameloft that want you to use WIFI. I was able to update the sims which is EA through 3G

    Because the game downloads are small then it downloads the rest of the game to the sd card to save space. It let's you buy games anywhere over 3G. If you downloaded the full game over 3G your data plan would go through the roof. I only have a 1gb plan that is shared with my wife. One game would kill that. If you want to stick to shitty little phone games then go ahead. You can tell which games are going to be large by the quality of the game. PSX games took up almost an entire CD which is 700MB.

    Gameloft does annoy me, i have true unlimited data on 3 here in the UK, its my only internet connection at home. I play my PC/ps3 through the xplays hotspot feature fine.
    Why cant we play multiplayer games over 3g? This is a portable device after all!!
    Why not let us have the choice of downloading sd data over wifi or 3g?

    It should be optional but a lot of stupid people would freak out when it goes over the cap. A lot of people have caps. As for multi play over wifi I didn't notice. I haven't tried but that is stupid. Probably the same reason.
    Like it or not there are idiots who sue companies for large phone bills. Look at Apple, I believe they got sued.
