    I have a Telus Milestone that I use on AT&T's 3G network
    [(WCDMA (UMTS) / GSM 850/900/1800/1900 ]
    do the limitations mentioned above apply to my Milestone model as well?
    If I understand this correctly, I am unable to install all the ROMs available in this forum on my model?

    Am a bit bumped by what I am reading since it is so different from my current G1/HTC Dream phone.
    That is correct, you will not be able to overclock the Milestone or mod it substantially at all. You will be able to root it but that's only if you have a non-Canadian Milestone. Also, rooting only allows a few nice things (ie. WiFi tethering etc) but as I said, no substantial mods and certainly no custom kernels.

    As I just wrote above, you won't be able to install any custom ROMs unfortunately. In fact, the Telus Milestone released in Canada is not even rootable.



    If you don't like this, write to Motorola (official Motorola support forums, Motorola facebook site, etc), write to sites like Phandroid, Engadget, write to whatever tech blogs you like and help raise awareness.

    This issue needs to be addressed because they've purposely left the Droid unlocked, and locked down the Milestone (and they have admitted this is the case, but refuse to say why.) Why is the USA released model getting special treatment?

    WOW... I did not realize the Milestone was so restricted and that Moto would purposely screw so many customers (though it comes as no surprise to me)... This along with a few other things that have come out recently has affirmed my decision that my Droid will be the LAST Moto phone I ever buy and likely the last Moto product in general... The Droid already was the first Moto product to be allowed in my house in over 5 years (and first Moto phone in almost 7 years)... This is what I get for giving them another chance and going against my better judgment.... Looks like it's back to HTC as soon as they release a Android device I like!!
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    DROID DOES!

    Milestone DOESN'T!

    moto is only focusing at US (Droid)

    other parts of the world (milestone) is restricted for custom Roms so sad

    It's a verizon deal with Motorola (Droid Does) really was a part of their agreements so to speak.... Droid to be the best phone.

    And all mimics would be a downgrade (slightly)

    However if you Root your phone I STRONGLY suggest the following.

    1. Auto Memory Manager
    2. AdFree
    3. Titanium Backup

    Excellent idea! We always get the Sh*tty end of the stick when it comes to cellphones. I actually wanted a Nokia N900 but could wait for them to come to Canada.

    not sure what else to say, you just nailed it. beyond the locked bootloader, I went through an additional Motorola induced setback with my milestone, if that's even possible.
    I installed 2.1 and expected the world (new launcher, new media gallery,etc...), and all I got live were wallpapers.
    Anyone know how I can get these missing 2.1 features on my piece of sh*t milestone?
    thanks
