    Howdy

    Just stopping in to say hello. Been lurking for a while but finally decided to register. I received my Nexus One about a week ago, got tired of iPhone OS and the lack of customization.

    Thanks! While I am loving actually owning my own device instead of leasing it from Apple, I am just not sure about unlocking the bootloader and rooting yet. I'm fully capable of doing it, I just hate that its not reversible. I'm sure once its a month or two old I'll get braver.

    I haven't rooted either...it's not that I'm chicken (I assure you I've hacked thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of equipment!), nor worried about the warranty. I don't see the need to hack the device to gain the supposed 'benefits'. Most are eye-candy, or battery/cpu tweaks that simply don't bother me enough to displace the OEM ROM. I want to see what Google provides me with, and improves among the ROM upgrades, more than I want to see colored trackball alerts (FroYo has them), overclock, tether (FroYo has it) or play with widgets/backgrounds,etc. Perhaps I'm just getting too old to invest so much time for so little gain! :rofl3:

    I completely agree. With the iPhone there was a huge upside to jailbreaking. Multitasking alone was worth the jailbreak. I just hated that a stock iPhone didnt let me do the most simple things. I don't see these limitations with Android. While froyo seems like it will be a nice improvement, I can wait however long it takes for google to push it to me. This phone already does what I was lacking with my iPhone.

    My sentiments exactly.

    I am an AT&T subscriber, and yes I am under contract. I started my contract with my iPhone 3G, upgraded to the 3Gs and then purchased my N1. I've never been a fan of AT&Ts coverage, but I deal with it because of my choice of phones. My only complaint is if I am near 3G boundary and the phone flaps back and forth between EDGE and 3G, but my iPhones did this too. I have an EDGE tower less than a mile from my house so I have great voice service at home, and at work I am a couple blocks from a 3G tower so I have great 3G data service there.

    T-mobile coverage is terrible here in Central Illinois, so I've stayed away from them.
