    Hey guys. I like this phone. Saw it the other day (thank you Chris Chandler @ the 290 Cricket Wireless location in Houston, TX)

    Once there is a way to root it (should be able to unlock the bootloader, but need a custom recovery... someone here can make that), I would change the lcd density in the build.prop to get a little more real estate. The phone is beautiful, but the resolution is fairly low. Turn the density down, and you should be in business!

    As far as colors go, I heard they would have to order like 50k units to get another color. Cricket green would be interesting IMO. I'd get it to sit it on my desk as a reminder of this wonderful community we have :-).

    I needed a faster phone without the 500$+ price tag, and this fills that bill nicely, but as much as I HOPE for quick support, unless HTC steps up with more than the unlocker tool on the htc dev site, this could be a loooong wait. Fortunately cricket has a 30 day return policy, so I'll give it a couple weeks to see if there is any movement. If none, I'll exchange out for the LG 4g device or grind my teeth and fork over the difference for the S3.
    Sprint is supposed to be getting it. And a few carriers over seas had it before us in a dual sim version.

    Yeah, I just saw an article about the SV passing through the FCC with Sprint frequencies, so yep, it will be getting more activity. Personally I'm very happy with its performance now, so getting faster/better roms and such will only be a bonus at this point.

    Only way I can get it is to pay full price, and I don't even use my Cricket account. My other job is taking all my money away.

    Specifically the first car in my picture below.
