So, basically, this is the worst time to buy a WP7 phone for someone who likes to customize their devices to their liking?

Not if you buy HTC. HTCs are the best for customization

If you check out the HD7 / HD7s (at&t) - it blows the Surround out of the water. However, it still is pretty expensive for a 1st gen phone.

I had a Surround for awhile...wasn't all too impressed for it being a first release phone. -(Before interop/rooting capabilities).

can the discussion on why it is happening end and talk about what to do. Like i posted earlier how is our states affected if we unlock beyond the chevron token unlock? will anything be changed really if we have interop-unlocked?

Why is this happening? Good question. I do know that I'm tired of being burned by these fly by night development groups....I guess I should've known better after the TP2 Sim Unlocker debacle...Some apps won't work if you're interlop unlocked...the only method I see is registry edit the value to prevent the re-lock...

"I just want to know if apps already side loaded will continue to work after the tokens are revoked" On mine none of them ! And, no way to install new xap.
