    I live in Alaska where mobile networks are limited to in-state carriers ACS and GCI. The only national carrier is AT&T, who rents equipment from ACS.

    So I have a Motorola droid through ACS and use it mostly for news and connectivity apps because it gets confused when I try to treat it like a phone. ACS is not a national carrier so I can't use it to confirm accounts like facebook and twitter.

    I have an HTC Inspire through AT&T that keeps me on the national grid so I use it as my "everywhere" phone - which kinda sucks because it's AT&T.

    Anyways, here's my noob question: can the apps that I've downloaded and saved to sd/card on the motorola be installed from sd/card to the HTC? Right now, when I try to install from card to HTC it says my settings do not allow non-market application downloads and I can't figure out how to change that.

    Welcome to the community glad to have you with us. Only thing i can think of is change the phone so it will be able to accept 3rd party apps. The way i can change my D2 is by going through menu>settings>applications>check "unknown sources" box... when the unknown sources box is checked you can then install apps that have been downloaded outside of the market. I hope this can help and remember to make yourself at home in the community

    Thanks Guys!

    With the Motorola accepting third party apps is easy - like you said - just check the box allowing it in settings> applications> manage applications. With the HTC there is no such option. :(

    My next question is: which forum topic best describes my issue with the HTC Inspire? With that - I'm off to explore my options on the boards.

    Thanks again!
