PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While we rail on Apple for its closed and restrictive policies regarding its iOS, with Apple you at least know what you're getting into. When you buy a mobile phone running Android, many do so because of its open and more free nature than the competing platforms - so you can imagine the surprise when the hackers at xda-developers found out the brand-new T-Mobile G2 has a hardware rootkit that will always restore the phone's original operating system upon installing a different ROM. HTC says it doesn't know of any such feature, and points towards the carrier (or Google).

If you see a sign "Mine field" and still walk there it's your own problem. Everyone knows that operator contracts are mine fields, but still people sign them and then complain about something. And this is totally absurd. Don't be stupid, buy unlocked phones - there will be no problems.
