    Unless they make a 2init recovery like we have for the motion and cm10 with a locked bootloader.

    you mean, hope that there is someone who knows how to do all of that on a device that is very similar so that it can be ported over?

    Hmm, my esteem is rooted, but that's about it since I just used it only for normal phone usage and wifi tethering. Hopefully someone skilled would be able to figure things out for the Spirit. If not then it looks like I'll be paying $10 more a month for tethering lol. :(

    Yes that's what I meant, and I was saying that just because it has a locked bootloader doesn't necessarily mean you are screwed out of those things.

    When I said like we have I wasn't implying that I had anything to do with that just saying that's what we have for the phone,I know how it looked.

    oh no you misunderstood man. my point is teh only reason you guys even have recovery let alone a booting cm10 rom is cuz you had a similar device to just take teh devs work from. what if that phone was completely different? or that guy never made it in teh first place. my point is you shouldnt place bets on hopeing that development might grow thanks to some other phone somewhere hopefully... you guys lucked out and hopefully it all works out great :)

    as soon as hroark gets a chance ill be looking over a few things t9o see if i can help yall too, not promising anything buty might fix mms and lte

    I know you weren't saying anything I just reread my post and it kinda sounded funny. It would be awesome to get help on lte and messaging. On the messaging I was receiving but couldn't send, and on the lte in the settings it says iccid unknown I don't know if that helps just a couple things to note.

    Well I can confirm its not available in BP to order. Not that means it wont be available Friday..but a good indicator it wont.
     
  12. FWIW, Metro just broadcasted the Motion deal today on Facebook. I would expect them to let that deal run at least a couple weeks before introing the Spirit to knock down their in stock numbers of Motions first.

    But I'm just thinking out loud too. :rolleyes:

    The training for it should be kicking in this Friday or Monday expect it soon after that
     
  15. I know that.

    I was mainly speaking of the Motion sale relative to WHEN the Spirit comes out. (If the Spirit is $200, that's IMO going to suck a lot of the Motion sales away even at $100 out of pocket. As arguably their #2 phone since last August, I would think Metro has (had) a sizable number of them in stock.)

    I think I've read a couple Metro people here say the Motions were flying off the shelves. IMO, that's good news for the Spirit release.

  16. I was referring to not losing my old plan I have (which is no longer available,) and not paying $10/month for it... I only use it if I go to a client's house/business with internet issues... It doesn't happen too often, not often enough to pay that is for sure...

    You can use the stock tether app the same way you would any other hotspot app. The tethering app doesn't know if you have the plan or not
