    If you're within the 30 grace period take it back! If not, then I'm not sure how to proceed.

    I have Froyo so the unknown sources appears in my app settings. I know it is in 2.1 but I can not recall the location.

    That option is not an option on ATT android phones they locked it down so you can only download from the Market. Its rediculous.

    I dont know if its already done but just keep an eye out for a root hack for it and give att the middle finger.

    Be sure to visit our sister site over at ATTDroids.com and check out the HTC Aria Forum. I think you'll find the answers over there :) Rooting Guide, Custom Roms, etc.
