    Does any of you personbodies know how an HTC 8XT Windows phone is like?
    HTC is a good manufacturer except it is kinda like BBRY, in the doldrums sales-wise. I used to be quite active with the Windows phone but I didn't like the direction the OS was going. Very similar to iOS and it is locked down. I don't think it can be rooted (iOS can be jailbreaked), it has no flash browsing capability at all (iOS has a browser option where flash runs off a server), and there is no user access to the file system (no file manager). The live tiles are nice but that is about it. Windows Phone 8.X is different than RT and regular Windows, although I think they are trying to unify them. You have to buy apps through the Windows Phone store and there is no sideloading allowed. The apps are pretty sparse, too, but most of the major ones are there. All Windows phones come with a limited version (feature-wise) of Office apps. Maybe the Fish can tell you more...

    Well, it is certainly a different set of limitations...right now, I'm pretty happy with the Z30-PB combo. Better than my android stuff. You'll see the flashing, pretty boxes?

    Well I'm glad your satisfied. But i am tiered of the having to edit every thing I type because of the double typing. Periods being add after every word, the Bridge sucks, every app with a password I have will not let sign in (say invalid password), freezing up all the time (have to pull the battery and the list goes on. I do like BB10 but had enough fooking with this thing.

    That sounds awfully weird. I'd either get a new one from Sprint or send it back to BBRY for warranty repair/replacement.
