Get back to me when I can use the device on any carrier without a data plan. I live around wireless networks, and I refuse to pay $1000/yr for a data plan I don't need or want and that is also slower than free wi-fi I have constant access to.
the guy told me since i didn't have a data plan, that the phone wouldn't work at all, i popp'ed in my sim card from my wing, turned on the phone, viola, everything worked, he was a bit miffed and confused, tried explaining it to him, but it was beyond his 30 minute trainging video certification...
you don't "need" a data plan, but they wont let you get a discounted phone if you don't opt in for one when you "upgrade". where i live, i don't get access to 3g or 4g, i barely get edge, since i don't go many places where 3g or 4g is accessible, i don't see the point in buying a data plan, when like skripka, i have access to wifi thru out most of the day.
as for the honeycomb source not being readily available...oh well, i'm still having fun with the 2.3.3 gingerbread source trying to get everything to work correctly with the cliq
