I thought so.

- I feel oh so dirty flashing without wiping.
- A word of advice, do a clean flash or just shut the hell up.
- That sad moment my favorite rom became too bloated for my liking that I started to look at other roms.
- I read the OP but where's the fun in that?

Why 'no' to the microsim? You can trim a normal simcard to fit.

I dont know... I really dont like the idea of going through all that trouble of making my sim incompatible with the rest of my old phones or majority of other users where I am located. I wanna make it sure that if ever I cant get my new phone to work (because of some stupid stuff I did modding it) I can just put my sim to another phone and not worry about people not being able to reach me during those time. You can say I can just make an adapter but then why go through all the trouble?

Im pretty sure micro sims would be or is the standard right now but its not widely popular where I am yet.

The way the Desire forums are going I think it's high time I moved on (all the name calling and bitching is unbelievable!).

But what to get??? I see the HTC Sensation has finally dipped below £300 on Amazon.uk but if I get it I know I'll be wanting something newer as soon as I get it...

Hmm... I just don't know. Maybe the new Sony Xperia S???
Choices, choices...

You'd change the phone becouse… of the bitching and **** on a forum?

Am I the only one that sees the bottom part of the new xperia series as a complete waste of space?

No. I'd change the phone because development on the Desire is dead. All of the decent developers have now gone (they've moved on to newer devices), I've had it for nearly two years, and all of the little kids bitching and fighting mean that the forum is no longer a good place to be. The whole forum is turning into a joke of how it used to be.

Desire development??? That's a bit of a joke now.

I kinda agree, but the Xperia S looks a decent device.

I couldn't have said it better either. Or maybe I could employ an image or two

I have had it for slightly less than you, but it has repaid itself many times since then. I have had great times tinkering with it and playing, and with kids and discount hunters remaining here, it is unsafe IQ-wise to be here any longer
