Hi All,

Quick question - The HTC Desire has the a8183 version that works with XT's NextG network. Does the samsung galaxy S also have an applicable model?

I'd love to go for this phone - but need it to work on XT.

My other choice is of course the HTC if the Sammy won't work. :)

Thanks!

Yes, think Telstra is launching one in Oz any day now. Will need to be unlocked... or there might be Ozzie vendors already selling that model (UMTS850).

Maybe, maybe not:

Apparently OPTUS have exclusivity until the end of August.

"My Office got a news letter advising the telstra galaxy s will be available from their enterprise ordering system from late september. So it may be delayed."

Hopefully Telecom can get hold of a 850MHz batch before then..

Is there any word on when/if any NZ importers will get the captivate in? I like the look of that over the I9000

I'm loving my SGS but really wish I got the Telecom XT version.

Not totally sold on Android... but I think if it continues to improve, it'll be great long term, so I might as well support it now to help it along.

Well im sorry SGS users/lovers but im going to go and buy a Nexus one today. No doubt SGS is a better device, but I feel that the Nexus one is more "solid". By that I mean it has better development, less bugs and the first for updates. Thats just my opinion anyway :)

I don't think anyone will cry, you got to go with what makes you happy :).
The nexus is a fine phone and has some advantages over the galaxy definitely, both have their good points and bad points.
Just check what screen you are getting on the nexus one... HTC have started putting SLCD on new batches instead of the AMOLED screens.
So make sure you are getting whichever you prefer....

The SLCD should be an advantage outside (you will actually be able to see things unlike the AMOLED)   but otherwise AMOLED definitely looks nicer, better colours, contrast etc.

Got my Galaxy S today =)

Is there a way to connect to wifi networks when you disable SSID broadcasting on the wifi access point.  I can only seem to connect when SSID broadcast is enabled.  I can't seem to force connect.  On my friends iphone 2g, i enabled SSID broadcast to setup the wifi account, then i could disable SSID broadcast, but still force connect to the wifi network.

 Yes it works for me. You don't have to enable SSID, just use "Add Wi-Fi Network". The Network SSID is case-sensitive I think. It will say "not in range" when you first set it up, but then it should find and connect to the access point after a few seconds, and just connect to it if it's in range subsequently. Make sure new stations are allowed in the access point configuration when you first connect (e.g. for Telecom's Thomson TG585 configure "allow new devices" under Security).
