Yeah. The main difference between 6.5 and phone 7 is the hackability of the OS. Windows Phone 7 isnt that "hacker friendly" as 6.5 and its really limited. I like the simplicity of the OS though tbh, and i think this is a good OS for people who dont give a hoot about flashing different roms and whatnot.

Im pretty sure you have to enable lock on power in the settings somewhere. No actually Im pretty sure its in the settings somewhere. When I was running Gingerbread, it always locks on power.

Interesting. I was thinking of picking up an HD2 when they got those working, just to try the OS out. Might do it if I can find an HD2 for ~$150 in the next few months.

Must have for me is cookie home tab editor And setting gAlarm as default.
That's kinda all that i need/use from those custom roms.

Well if your going to get a phone just for Windows Phone 7, might as well grab an official Windows Phone 7 device. You should go to the store and play around with the Windows Phones there. Android on the other hand is really good on the HD2, i like it.

HD2= $200 or so

Any WP7 device=$550+

That's why I would only buy it on the HD2 at this point. I already have an android phone, and am not signing another contract. I can see using the HD2 as like an MP3 player/toy. Still not convinced if it's worth it even at HD2 prices, we'll see.

I got my hands on an HD2. I'm wondering what is the best andriod rom currently floating around? Also, I'm looking to unlock it from T-Mobile. If I install a custom rom first can I still use an unlocking website to unlock the phone from T-Mobile? If you know a good/cheap site to unlock with let me know.

I have an HD2. I'm tired of the crappy Windows Mobile. Phones freezes just trying to text once and awhile. I'm wanting to flash it to Android, but I'm worried I'll brick my phone.

Yeah, I found how to make it unlock, and lock that way.
