    If no longer have a warranty as pointed out before the only con is that it will now be void.

    Finally got our OTA Froyo update for my Desire last week. I love it over 2.1 except it seems to be destroying my battery at a faster rate. Odd.

    Wishing for snow during the summer, are we? :p For a second I thought that was a new sense weather animation.

    Bugs me that you've got phone, contacts, and browser apps when they're right down below >.<

    I'm sure they added some running apps you'll never use. Go into your settings and try turning some off (Skype, Amazon MP3, etc.)

    :) I see you finally listened to me about setting display brightness & conservative governor. Wanna try out something else?

    Get Sysctl Config from the market and plug in these values:

    Minfree Kbytes:6144
    Dirty ratio:90
    Dirty background ratio:70
    VFS Cache Pressure: 1
    OoM Allocating task checked

    Don't need apply at boot if on CM7, then push apply. Should help with overall "feel" and battery life a tad.

    If you have higher ram (256MB+) you can set minfree higher if you wish. That's more a global tweak. Basically with the tweaked values it won't cycle cache as much but set it too high and it can be just as bad as not setting them at all. Som roms (no init.d support) and a few others will have to do a Set at boot for it to function. I think it also has to have compache enabled kernel or rom.

    Here's a quick read over what it does:

    Well from my reading everyone said the only real difference in the Galaxy s r910 and the r915 is just .LTE support.

    I knoticed that the G.S has Micro Hdmi support and i could find anywhere talking about the 915 having it. after 1/2 hour with cricket on the phone they transfered me to samsung. where they went too tell me i was the first person to ask this. They kept on putting me on hold looking / calling and asking people{hope the right people.


    Long story short the Indulge does not support Micro Hdmi. Like the Galaxy s does support.


    Which sucks cause Netflix works on this phone not rooted eveen tho its not provided in the market yet. The apk found other places does an auto update from them. so idk beta lol.


    differences in the 2 as i know of right now. Lte and Micro HDMI( Usb). could maybe be a reason the GS 7 rom isnt working on the Indulge which has been reported around the net.

    I don't know why everyone gets excited about the UI
    IMO Launcher Pro is leaps and bounds ahead in features and customization.
