    Easy, read this and then show me any P2K phone that can be modded in such an extent from the original stock firmware.
    Nothing is impossible, only miracles take a bit longer

    Those that have both the V8 and the V9, how do you find the differences in the microphone placement? Better or not much different?

    I have owned various V8 and V9 (although I do not own either of them now).

    I felt that both of them were very good devices, and I did not really have a problem with the microphone placement on either of them.

    If you are on AT&T, then there might be clear reasons to prefer the V9 if you are in an area with developed 3G systems. There's growing (though anecdotal) testimony that AT&T are cutting back on conventional GSM in areas where they have to make a choice, and in new areas they seem to have a very clear preference for 850 MHz 3G.

    If you decide on the V8, then you should get to know Rasputin and his works right away. He is the biggest Linux resource for the V8, and to do any modifying you'll need to get to know his systems.

    EDIT:

    The V9x doesn't do 3G voice, does it?

    So even if the V9x could pick up a 3G signal over a 2G signal, that doesn't necessarily mean that it will be able to make or receive voice calls. Right?

    As far as I know the 3G radio in the V9x is data only.

    That website seems to be Rasputin's personal website. Sometimes he runs out of bandwidth, depending on how many people visit his website. You might want to try in a few days.

    I thought the v9 was capable of 3G voice calls?

    I honestly don't know. How do you check that kind of thing?

    The V9x remains on whatever WCDMA signal it has while making voice calls.

    One of the attractions of WCDMA for AT&T is how many voice calls can be made on a single array.

    I just picked up a T-mobile V8 and I was wondering if it's possible to customize the shortcut menu. On a Z6 I played with you could.

    Thanks!
