    Hello guys.
    First of all, greetings!

    I'm from Brazil and I've just ordered my Milestone. It will be arriving by thursday, tops, and I really anxious to put my hands on it :D

    I was waiting for this mobile for a long time, since its announcement last month. What happened was that it was first announced by Tim, with a data plan and all that stuff. But its rival Vivo pulled the trigger and started selling it first, last thursday, on a few stores in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

    After that I searched all over my town for one single mobile, but the vendors didn't even know which phone I was talking about.

    And then, yesterday, out of nowhere, the Milestone was avaiable at motorola online store for about U$ 650. The unlocked version, SIM-free, no strings attached. I was ready to buy it, and I found out that another online store, fastshop, starting selling it too, and 200 bucks cheaper!

    AND, as if it wasn't enough, the Brazilian package comes with a free dock!

    Man, that made my day.

    I ordered and soon I'll be joining you, happy Milestone owners.

    That's it, just to share my happiness with you guys.

    Cheers!

    Sure!
    You'll get to see the unboxing :DD

    I was deciding on what give to myself as a christmas gift. I currently own a Sony Ericsson K790 (same as K800), and I've had a happy time with it.

    I wanted to move on to another modern mobile, and in July I bet on the LG Renoir KC910. Wrong choice.
    I deeply regret making that choice. Not that it is a bad phone, it's just not good enough.
    I returned it to LG after it suffered from the same problem 3 times in a row, and I sued the company. :D

    I was since then looking for an alternative for the iPhone, and now I've found it, I hope.

    What made me bet on the Milestone is the everyday growing members community. That's what a phone needs to survive.

    Cheers!

    Hey Tigger, I paid exactly R$ 1.586,00 for my mobile.
    Converting to Euros, it's about 450-500.

    It's SIM-Free and with no plan attached. I think it was a good deal. We in Brazil were expecting a higher price, as it is indeed higher in physical stores and on motorola website as well.

    Now I'm doing my research on apps and games, and this forum here is what's best, I believe. Do you recommend any blog or especific site to complete my research material ?

    So the price is quite equal to europe...what provider are you planning on getting a data plan?
    What will it cost you?

    Careful when you do that as some on here opened the box upside down and dropped their Droid....

    This is assuming that it's the same style box....

    Tigger, one of the reasons that made me buy from this especific online store is that the phone comes sim-free, unlocked. As I don't call too much, since I have an office phone that I can use, I plan on continue using a pre-paid plan on my private phone. I pay for it about U$ 15,00 a month, and that's enough for me.

    As for the data plan, is it really necessary, even when I have access to Wi-Fi almost everywhere I go ?

    lol, thanks for the advice, but I'm really careful with my eletronic babies :biggrin:
    And I think is a different box, since it comes with the dock and all...

    Hey, brother from a distant land, I've heard that Brazilian Milestones come with native Portuguese language already in the system. PT-BR, as far as I know, so I can't help you right now.

    Remember that I don't have mine yet. It will arrive around wednesday.

    :)

    I live in the usa and I can't buy from that site. I would be very grateful if you could find a site that sells the south american milestone to the usa.

    Hey everyone:
    Just got my Droid (Milestone here in Brazil) and here are my first impressions (and some answers for your previous questions):

    - I got mine attached to a voice/data plan (Vivo). I've paid about US$ 250,00 for the device (R$ 499,00) and a plan of 200 minutes + ilimited 3G internet, which will cost me around US$ 100,00 a month. I think it's the best option, as it would make no sense to have an internet phone like this with no data plan.

    - The device is fantastic. The screen is gorgeous. Android 2.0 feels good, although there are space for improvements.

    - The Brazilian Bundle includes the Multimedia cradle, which is very nice. But it lacks a bigger SD card (8GB) and a vehicular charger.

    - Device is sturdy - the slider is excellent, with no gaps. The directional keys are useless, they should have killed it and improve the keyboard space (which is just regular).

    - Motorola made lots of efforts to quickly launch the phone here in Brazil - congratulations for that. But There are no accessories available yet - no extra chargers, no screen shields, no vehicular chargers, batteries.

    - Camera is just ok, and have an autofocus bug (loses autofocus easily). Google promised to fix that soon.

    Opa, um conterrâneo por aqui :D
    Seja bem-vindo, cara.

    Hey guys, mine has arrived yesterday, and although I was expecting a lot from the device, it has marveled me nevertheless.

    I'm in love with my new toy, and happy as a child with its Christmas gift.

    Now I'm going to explore every little thing it has to offer.

    My Brazillian mate up here has already stated what is like the national bundle, but I'd disagree about his directional keys opinion. I think its useful, specially when I'm typing an sms. But that's personal.

    Anyway, I'm very glad :D

    Cheers!
