Looks like the price on MobiCity has gone up, but I still ordered a Desire NextG to use on XT.
In case the last coupon code stops working, I got another one - TYV20

Yep MMS works. Not sure about the Facebook thing. Interested in knowing that myself though.

No one knows :P Probably some time in the next few months. Google only just released the source, so HTC will take a while to incorporate the Sense interface.

Anyone got the tworld thing working?
I go to pda portal and click your account and it just times out.

I read on nealr's blog about the iphone and something about logging in but all I see is yahoo xtra login.

I setup the APN's exactly as it has them in the sticky thread. Is this right? Yet to test mms.
Internet is working (using it to post this using swype which is awesome).

Hey Chaps

has anyone checked their phone for an update? Settings
-->About phone --> System Software updates?
It says that there is an update avaliable that will take the phone from 1.15.405.4 to 1.21.405.2. Has anyone applied this? and if you did, did you have to rename it to update.zip and move it to the root of the sdcard?

I haven't got it because i'm running a custom ROM, but if you use the built in updater it's all done automatically.

And 0.facebook.com appears to work too

Oh Ok - Followed your thread over at Modaco; and you installed the custom ROM described here
I have only updated it; to the first level - I.e get rid of the telstra crap. Not sure if I should wait for FroYo or go for this custom ROM installation? any recommendations
