I don't really know to be honest...
It started with the usb port problem but after several disasembling combined with my lack of experience and use of wrong tools I don't know how far the damage is, especially because after I screwed a couple of things up I kind of gave for granted that the phone was not salvagable and started "peeling" things off just to see. That's why I thought of using this one as a donor but I'm not sure it would work if there are several pieces needed.
It was after that when I started looking for a new one that I realised that there are none T9193's on the market any more (not even in Australia where these were used mostly by Telstra)
The thing is that I need a phone with wi fi hotspot to use in February in a job out where I need to connect to internet on my laptop but I'm not sure what to buy. I wanted to give a try to the HTC Edge once it came out but if I spend $500+ now on a phone I won't be able to buy the Edge in few more months.
At the moment the only candidates I see are either the galaxy S2 Skyrocket or the HTC vivid.
And to be honest even though the Galaxy seems to be a better option I'm a HTC fan and after having the HD2 for almost 2 years I'm not sure I'll like Android.
Yes, I know it sounds stupid but I got used to WM 6.5 my girlfried has an Android phone an I played with it a bit but I'm totally lost with it.
So I either find a cheap unlocked 3G (with AT&T bands) and wifi hotspot to last until the Edge comes out, or ditch out now for either the Galaxy or vivid and forget about the Edge later
