It does and thank you for your support on this awesome phone :)

Also can you add GumMobile as an option for those looking to buy this phone as they offered me excellent and super speedy service when I bought mine from them last month.

While you are adding suppliers to the list, Australia has 2 decent options for this device...
1. Dick Smith (http://dicksmith.com...unlocked-mobile), currently $299
2. Crazy Johns (http://www.crazyjohn...u8800-x5-black/), also $299 with free delivery

From a pick-up point of view, Dick Smith is the best option as they have an incredibly good returns policy.

From a delivery point of view, Crazy Johns is the best as its very fast and free.

Both are 100% unlocked and unbranded.

I got mine from Crazy Johns and have used it on Vodafone and now Optus with no dramas. Ordered it late Wednesday night, it was delivered Friday lunch time. Pretty impressive.

This has surely been asked before, but what is the difference between ROM and firmware? I'm confused...

The way I look at it:

ROM - Custom made Firmware by 3rd Party.

Firmware - Official Release by Manufacture.

I am probably totally wrong though :)

Hey,

I've got problems with my WiFi.

My build-number is:
U8800V100R001C00B135SP01
(Custom version: CUSTNLDC253D001)

I want to upgrade my firmware to B136, because I've read it solves the WiFi-problem, but my question is: can I still change the language to Dutch? Because B135 supports Dutch, and i'm Dutch.

Also I've read B136 doesn't support Swype, I use it a lot and can I reinstall it when I upgrade to B136? I've made a copy from swype install-pack with Root Explorer to my SD-card.

Not really sure about the language selection but the update does add more to the list including Korean which is not in the stock firmware. As for Swype this unfortunately does not work but you can sign up to beta test version 3 which does work, it's a tiny bit flakey though. Actually I typed this using it :)

If your going to update you may as well go for FLB Custom ROM which is Android 2.2.2, wheres as B136 is only Android 2.2.1 :)

Also yes I believe is supports the Dutch Language!

I want Swype, car home and gallery and further also on this ROM, but is this standard, or do you need to buy it?
