Windows A few days I switched back to Windows Phone 7.5 as my main smartphone operating system. Why? Well, because I can. I like to change things up every now and then, and blessed as I am with an iPhone 3GS (currently pulling duty at my best friend as her portable gaming device), Galaxy SII with CM9, and an HTC HD7, I have the luxury of doing so. Now that I'm back in the neat, tidy, and straight-lined arms of Windows Phone 7 - three long-standing issues really break the illusion, which all come from one source: the networking stack.

Interesting theory, but T-Mobile NL only uses 2100Mhz for 3G, which the HD7 supports.

It's really crazy. My brother's girlfriend and I both bought a 3GS in the same week, both on T-Mobile. We held the phones next to each other - hers had perfect 3G reception, mine had none. Same for my other phones. The moment I leave town - as in, almost accurate to the metre - I get my connection back.

It's insane, because outside of my hometown, my 3G connection is downright awesome. Elevators, buildings, it doesn't matter, it always works. Just when I'm in my hometown, it doesn't - no matter the phone.
