    They say "you no longer have to turn data off manually." I'm pretty sure it just forces data off when the screen is off (aka when the phone is on standby). I do this manually with a one-tap widget whenever I take out my phone to look at it.

    oh of course, it'll stop the 3G/wifi from auto updating, saving power and bandwidth. problem ofc, is that you wont get alerts for incoming email, messages, etc etc.

    perhaps it updates only once every few mins or something instead?

    maybe... but that'd be pretty complicated. sounds more like its activating airplane mode, at least partially.

    I have installed AnTuTu benchmark and sysinfo tool it is reporting that I have 90 ROM and 105
    RAM total and on the specs on the internet should be 256ROM/192RAM. And the numbers sound wright looking at the other info.
    So how is this possible ? Can some with T-mobile pulse check this for me ?

    Yes that numbers would sound right for free mem but free is 30mb ram and 50mb rom and that is with nothing running and only basic rom installed no additional programs.

    Well if it doesn't get an official Gingerbread update, using a custom ROM or wtv is the first thing to do :p

    Did you know? With a custom ROM of 2.3 Gingerbread, Your phone supports SIP (VOIP) calling NATIVELY, and unlike the official 2.3 Gingerbread, it also works on your mobile internet! not just Wi-fi!

    In Quebec, this is HUGE. You can get 500MB data for your mobile phone for just 6$/month (12$/month gets you the fastest speeds and 1GB, 30$ gets you 6GB) over your internet and use it with your phone (in all regions they cover, which is most of QC). Then you can get a phone number including caller-ID and voicemail and voicemail-to-email and call forwarding etc, with free calls to all major cities in Canada and super low long distance calls for 50$ FOR LIFETIME. BAAM! a 50$ one-time fee and 6$ per month gets you almost as much calling as you want + DATA, and no extra apps, it is part of your phone :D

    Ok when you get it, first thing is to root it. then use Droid X bootstrap to flash clockwork mod recovery. its proven to work on the droid pro.

    THEN.... your ready for custom roms and recovery!

    EDIT!

    There is also roms ready!

    some VOIP providers let you SMS via apps, but i just dont SMS at all. i use FB or email.

    gets my total costs down to <$15 a month for total calls + the 500MB of data (i primarily use it on wifi)

    Anyone get a hold of a Bionic? What are your thoughts? I'm wanting some more power, but I'm not sure I'm ready to give up Sense for Motoblur.

    Hey guys, can anyone help me? It seems I am unable to connect to my wifi with my phone. It connects fine with my ipod 4th gen. I'm using CM7 2.3.5 on my phone, and it all of a sudden said this when connecting to wifi. I have only tried this with my own wifi, not others, but I think its my phone as all other wifi devices connect fine.

    PS. My wifi is called Milo.
