    When I bought my phone last night the lady who sold it to me told me that i could stream netflix to it and use the $30 hdmi cable she got me to buy as well to plug it into my tv and watch streaming netflix from my phone to my tv. i cant seem to find this app anywhere and have no idea how to do it. any help?

    As far as I know there is no Netflix app, have you tried going to their website and viewing it there? Not sure if that works

    I'm pretty sure their making one though, I've read articles online looking for this and I know they were at some time looking for someone to work on a droid app for netflix, and I read that article probably 3 months ago, I'm sure they'll have an app within the next few months or so

    On the netflix site they say that there have been some security issues with coming up with the app for the droid, but they think they have it iron out and expect to have the app out the first part of next year.

    They are working on a netflix app for android, but have already stated they aren't sure which exact phones they will release it for. Although, I don't see them not releasing it for the X.

    Even so, you will have to root your phone and use a third-party app to view netflix on a tv through the hdmi port.

    Sorry but you were lied to.

    It never fails - they will tell you anything that sounds good.

    When i was shopping for my docking station I heard a salesperson telling someone that they could hook the HDMI up to the TV and stream Hulu. He was going on and on about all the things you could do with the HDMI cable. He said that soon Skype would allow for face to face conversations and it would stream up to an HD TV with the use of the HDMI cable...

    I was pretty blown away. Of course, this all sounds really feasible so the person didn't question any of it.

    I wonder if that guy bought the phone because of all that HDMI talk.

    Sometimes I question if I should say something when I hear bad information being passed on like that. It feels rude but at the same time I don't want someone to buy something they think has a built in laser beam...

    Anyway, the person admitted they didn't have a TV with an HDMI port. So even if he bought the phone I doubt he would have ever realized that he had been fed bad information.

    I guess the lesson here is that you should always do your research. There are not a lot of high dollar items you should ever buy (especially electronics) without doing some research first.

    PS: $30 is WAY too much to spend on a cable... http://www.amazon.com/Micro-HDMI-Cab.../dp/B003XNANU8

    I wouldn't say you got scammed but you most certainly got mis-informed.
