Just bought an Arc and thought I'd post a hello and ask a question.
I'm coming from a humble ZTE Blade/Orange San Francisco and the difference in phone and the Modaco forum is huge. Where is everybody ? The Blade forums here are over active if anything so its a shame to see so little activity for the Arc.
Regarding the phone, my first impression is that I can't believe how light it is. And even though the back cover IS as insubstantial as everybody says, its actually quite strong and the phone seems solid, with no flex.
OK - time to beg for info:
1. how can I SIM unlock the phone. Its on Orange (France) and my Orange (UK) sim doesn't work without a code so now I know its not unlocked (I bought it new from the classifieds in France). The Blade was stupidly easy to unlock (and free) but I think I have a steep learning curve ahead of me with the Arc and I know I have lots to learn about what a bootloader is , why I might want to unlock it, and what all this has to do with getting the best out of the Arc.
2. by the way, my box didn't have the HDMI cable in (cheapskates) - can anyone tell me what the best cheapest cable I can buy for the HDMI out please. Is it just a standard micro HDMI cable with no proprietary bullshit ??
Thanks in advance - hope it isn't my last post here.
