I wonder if this is a fully T-Mobile/new Metro capable phone or just a rebadged AT&T Mega, like how some MVNO's say they are now usable for AT&T/international phones because of the refarming...

picked mine up yesterday through my metro branch, , I had to tell him it was available, he got on the phone and ordered a few right then so I got the first one available in my area, came here to see if there's a root yet and figured I'd give a quick rundown

had no problem getting used to the size, it took all of one phone call, fell in love with it, not cumbersome and felt natural, I only have average sized hands at best

but I cannot get gestures to work yet, not sure I am going to like using them but would be nice to try

For those using pda.net, the phone would not find host until I unclicked "automtic" in proxy settings in chrome, then it worked fine

Also, my lg spirit only gave me 4-8 mgs download, I thought it was the carrier but the mega gets me 25, I didn't realize there was a hardware limitation on some radio/ antenae
