    GSM == Europe
    CDMA == USA

    Each ROM is specific to each phone - there is no generic ROM. So as long as you download a ROM designed for your phone, it'll work

    Yeah, basically if your phone has a SIM card it's GSM. Just installed Oxygen and so far it's awesome. TBH I did love Sense but seeing something like Oxygen seems to make Sense look a bit laggy, so maybe I could live without it. Oxygen doesn't have an option to set up a proxy host though, which was what was cool about Cyanagen based ROMs.

    I'm still on the lookout though

    For those of you running droid can you vote here please: Android users: what version do you run currently?
    I was similarly addicted to WM roms too when I had one

    Yeah that is annoying, however after using Sense for 6 months, I found that I had gotten so used to not having proxy, I didn't use it when I had the option to! Still, it would be nice to have it!

    True; but there's three of us in our office and we all have different OS'. They know Android kicks both of their phones to the dust, but the only achilles heel my Android has (which they always use) is the fact that I can't connect to the school wifi and their phones can.

    Whaaaa-aaaat?

    Why can you not connect?

    Is it because you have a proxy server? We have a proxy, here, and it's never been a problem for my phone, even before 2.2/2.3 and their proxy setting choice!

    I have the LG GT540....

    And proxy has held no fears for me....at all! In fact, I have put a HTC's Wildfire, Legend and Desire as well as a Motorola Defy on the network (for different people), and there's never been a prob.

    I think there's probably a setting that they are not letting you have

    Pray tell. I have managed to successfully get on the network using a third-party app called ASProxy so I don't think they're trying to stop me. Have you seen issue 1273 under Android bug reports?

    Ahhhhh...wait a minute.....

    I think I know why....

    The college firewall is not blocking port 80...therefore, I/we can get on without a problem.

    That'll be it, I reckon!

    I;ve got a Desire - I was just asking where you got your "stable" mod from

    I would refute (in the nicest possible way) that 2.3 is ready for virgin modders to install
    (especially from 404 type links )

    And 2.2 is the big release that has all the main goodies lacking in <=2.1 - 2.3 is just a 2.2 SP2 type of thing

    Also, I'd argue that you can't access proxies on non-rooted 'droids - IT IS the biggest stick that everyone can beat us over the head with - even on Cyanogenmod 2.2 - its PPP - I an either switch it on or off - no auto assignment to school SSIDs vs home - its embarrasing

    Si
