    Just got the motorola MING A1200, http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_a1200-1429.php

    Along with a Kingmax 2GB microSD card.

    So far I've been happy with it, except since this is the first smart phone that I've owned I'm a complete noob when it comes to "unlocking" my phone.

    I connected USB and did some file xfering, that's about it. So first, what does phone "unlocking" do? Also, how do I install games and other applications?

    unlocking lets you use the phone with other carriers. usually phones use java to run games, does your phone have java?

    Just like what Shiranai_Baka said. "Unlocking" the phone lets you "use" the phone with other carriers and of course you need Java to play the games. Looks like a very nice one.

    I decided to go with Fido, with 50mb of internet data per month + voice for $50, with the initial SIM card costing $30, and the signal strength so far has been great. Turns out my phone was already unlocked, apparently everywhere phones are unlocked except for Canada and some places in the States

    And yes my phone has Java, there's an extreme snowboarding game on it that's Java based, and I see Java games for my phone on the internet but they are Jad or Jar files, which when I try to run on my phone I get a "file type not supported" error. So can someone walk me through on how to install applications + games on my phone? Help would be greatly appreciated.

    My dad got it in Hong Kong on business for like 3500 Hong Kong Dollars, which is like $400 something USD.

    Only one thing bugs the hell out of me, and that's if you decide to watch movies on this thing, you're looking at a <3 hour battery life Luckily I have 3 batteries for it

    Also, I want to buy a bluetooth headset, but all of them are listed as bluetooth ver1.1 or ver1.2, while my phone states it's compatible with v2.0. Would this be a problem?

    I believe not. I believe that your cell phone is ahead of those headsets. But they are compatible i think.

    Seedler I gotta tell you, my friend has that phone and watching videos on it isn't that smooth. I believe it was like 15fps so its kinda choppy.

    k thx, will get a bluetooth v1.2 headset.

    And yah, the FPS on the video is 15 fps, 320x240:S. It's not great, but I can live with it. Just kinda wish it had a bigger screen.
