    Hi all,
    Have just registered on this forum.
    I have been thinking about purchasing the Milestone until today when I read different posts and also that their bootloader is locked I became hessetating.
    I want a phone with a physical qwerty keyboard.
    Any tips or is the motorola bootloader unlocked by now?
    Any help would really be apreciated, many thanks!

    I got the Milestone when it came out in Canada and I wouldn't recommend to anyone else. There are so many bugs like random music, random reboots, home screen disappears.... it could go on and on. Get a nexus one instead.

    Hi,
    Many thanks for your reply.
    But the Nexus one doesn't feature a physical qwerty keyboard?
    I am from Europe and this is only for the US?

    Well I'm not sure which Android phone will work for you in Europe but if you're looking for a dependable phone, then skip out on the milestone.

    It doesn't have a physical keyboard but with swype it would still be a very solid choice. The htc desire has better specs than the milestone by far, I believe there is a rather simple rooting method and htc usually stands by the build quality of their phones. This phone is available in europe I think!
    Enjoy! Let us know what you end up getting. Anything but the milestone, I have a motorola devour and I'm frustrated with motorolas inability to update their phones unless its the droid. Where is the love moto!!

    Hi,
    Well, I need a phone with a qwerty keyboard because I am visually impaired and have difficulties typing on an onscreen keyboard.
    Well, we'll see what I will end up with. Many thanks for all your help!
