    Apparently (I cannot verify due to T-Mobile not having released 2.3 for the Desire) when you go into your Wifi settings, you can press the menu button then select advanced and it should be in there.

    I have a HTC HD2 running a modified android now, i still have windows mobile 6.5 installed on it, i prefer 6.5 over 7 but android over windows, ive got it connected to our radius wifi using certificates, its connected to exchange and the job system so as i go about the school any jobs that are added i get instantly, well nearly

    I couldnt find a proxy settng for it, i have android 2.2.1 installed at the moment, might see if i cant upgrade, there are apps you can get from the market place that says they will let you use a proxy, but i couldnt get them to work, ive set our DHCP server to give my a static ip address based on my mac, then toled the ISA server to allow that ip adress though, its the only way i could get it to work

    Nope (i have 2.3 on my desire - leaked rom). think that its coming in 3.0 or 3.1. There should be an app that lets you set proxy settings but i've not used it myself. It is one of the downsides of android

    No proxy settings in advanced.

    EDIT: Nexus One V2.3.3

    Enterprise support

    Users can now configure an HTTP proxy for each connected Wi-Fi access point. This lets administrators work with users to set a proxy hostname, port, and any bypass subdomains. This proxy configuration is automatically used by the Browser when the Wi-Fi access point is connected, and may optionally be used by other apps. The proxy and IP configuration is now backed up and restored across system updates and resets.
    Coming in 3.1 source

    Ah, after reading another thead on here it appears I was mistaken and that the proxy support is in the latest version of the HTC Sense interface. That would explain why the Nexus One doesn't have it. My bad!!

    Don't bother with the new windows phones, I have a few friends who have them and hate them as well even though they were given them free!

    I even saw someone laugh when they posted a facebook update with the little windows 7 logo on it the other day

    It really is a poor 3rd choice after the other 2 mature OS's.

    If I had the choice I would go with an android based phone.

    I've got a HTC Pro 7 and my sister has a HD7 - can't say I've ever had a problem with either of them and WP7 is nothing like WM6.x so don't worry about being left with something pantsy.

    The one thing that I like most about WP7 over iOS and Andoird is that WP7 has more options on hardware than the iPhone (like with Android phones) but has the same very fluid user experiance as with iOS (mainly because Microsoft monitors the app store).
