Every carrier has a wide variety of great phones. What you need to work on is competing with the awesome plans your competitors have.

    Just an FYI, I inherited this phone from my wife. She ran it for about 6 mntohs and changed to a blackberry. I started playing around with it once it became mine. I too was frustrated about all the widgets being in CHINESE.. I went into SETTINGS -> Privacy -> FACTORY DATA RESET and everything rebooted in ENGLISH, all the widgets etc are there in English (once selected) no more Chinese. I am appalled at the battery life even with JUICE DEFENDER installed.
