Converted: Original iPhone 2g Dev team member now excited MyTouch 4G owner!
Normally I wouldn't never post such a noob/trash thread anywhere on the internet... but not only am I excited to own this phone, I am scared to death of entering territory I do not know at all.
About three months after the original iPhone came out I wondered if it could be hacked onto tmobile... thats where I got my start and joined the dev team and have been pretty loyal since. (been kickin it with them since 1.0.1/2) and have seen Android come up in the background but dismissed it until just recently.
Yesterday after wrestling with myself for days, I took my iphone, as well as my girlfriends iphone 3g, into tmobile - put us on 1 joint plan and got us both mytouch 4g's.
After playing with it for about an hour in the stores - I AM SO IMPRESSED. Really, apple doesn't have much to offer other than a name, a stupidly thin product which, honestly, has a screen that is just too small for functionality purposes... and of course the small little deal with them constantly closing jailbreaking loop holes and making it a peice of crap to work with.
So here I am now, noob and vulnerable - but eager and excited to learn the ins and outs of android and eventually getting back to the prowace I once was with the iphone, but on android.
I have heard from my friend that the Desire does have an efuse like thing in it, but not to the detrament that those motorola droid users are facing....
my aims are to:
1) enable and have full control of my phone, like a jailbroken iphone.
2) be able to customize it however I want, with whatever I want
3) not be restricted into what apps I can and cant install, or uninstall (bloatwear)
4) truly say I love and know my phone, in and out.
Thank you for listening to this happy rant - I sware I've gone from my mid twenties to a 7 year old on Christmas.
long live android.
I'm finally out of the cave and can see the real world!
