Yeah. He's running a rom based off EL13 update. I think it's called Unnamed rom.

All I know is that windows phone os is looking good after the mango update.

@yankees45us yes the arrive can now be unlocked, there are a couple people in the arrive forum who have unlocked it. There's also a rumor that sprint is slated to release 3 new WP phones in 2012 one each from HTC Samsung and Nokia, but I'll believe that when I see it.

I heard that there were roms available for the Galaxy S2 that would permit tethering, but I had already rooted the phone and sideloaded a tethering app (as Sprint has blocked them on the Android store).

Has the Arrive or any other Seven Phone been jailbroken yet? Although as you know, I've been down on it, I am very surprised not only at the low market numbers, but the fact that demo units have disappeared from some Sprint stores. Mayber Nokia will change that, but right now, IOS and Android rule the Sprint market.
@gjhuff yes the arrive has been jailbroken don't know if it has tethering tho. my hd7 already allows tethering stock. Maybe u can get a cheap HD7 on eBay like I did to use on their $30 prepay plan to supplement the slow speeds ur experiencing. My HD7 on 3G absolutely destroys sprint 4G. The HD7 also even has a couple of custom roms but I have no need for them since it already does everything I need it to do stock.

@eric12341

Can you provide links to the guides or whatever people used to "JailBreak" their Arrive? As i have been looking and the only thing i have seen is the unlock from Chevron or Dev unlocked is the on thing you can do on the arrive it self. That allows you to side load apps but a lot of the custom apps require Interop unlock which is not possible on any 2nd gen WP7 phones (which includes the arrive) currently as far as i have seen.

@elesbb i paid only $3 for my SIM card from amazon and only $30 for the service which includes 100 min, unlimited text and 5GB of full speed data. I most likely will be switching to a value plan which includes 500 anytime mins, unlimited night and weekend minutes (too many hot latinas want to talk on the phone with me and 100 mins is much too limited) and 10GB of data (sisters iPod has been sucking the shit out of my 5GB plus I want to watch more videos) once i get my income tax. its like $94 a month but a discount will knock it down a bit.

$94/month is the Value plan? I just checked out Sprints coverage maps for Chicago and it looks Saturated with 3G/4G coverage, leaves me wondering why you were having coverage problems?
