1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Does anyone know if it's possible to use my existing VZW SIM card (that I used to use with my old blackberry world phone), in a Canadian or European Milestone, and also root the device and run wifi tether? I ask because I will be going to Germany for Oktoberfest, and I MUST have internet access in my pocket.

    From what I understand (and please correct me if I'm wrong), the Milestone *can* be rooted with a modded update.zip, but the bootloader is signed, and this somehow complicates things. I'm unsure what the implications of this are, but I wonder:

    • Can I install Bugless Beast?
    • Can I install other restricted apps?
    • Is installing a modded kernel necessary to run wifi tether?
    • Can I install Chevy's kernel (overclocking is unnecessary)?
    • Do you think VZW will allow me to just pay a flat rate for unlimited international data roaming the way they did with my blackberry?
