    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!!:icon_ banana:

    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
