    I decided to abandon blackberry because of its horrible UI, clunky browser and a heap of other features i dislike for an Android, specifically the T-mobile G2.
    I am in central America so that phone is not a choice here, anyways i bought it from Ebay unlocked and im just wondering how will updates work? Can i still get them from t-mobile, and i push it through the PC without having to hack it?

    if you are able to download the OTAs yourself, probably not, but i doubt you would receive the OTAs after its unlocked... the phone doesnt have to be rooted or "jailbroken" to download updates and ota apks...

    I understand that but is there any other way to update other than OTA?
