Bought as the San Francisco.
Very pleased. Performs without fault. It will be better when the OS is upgraded to 2.2. First touch screen/ Android so no benchmark to compare it with. 21-11-10.

It's been released in the UK for a couple of months as an Orange San Francisco.

Yes, it charges from it's usb port, from anything that has a usb port also, with the included lead, or you can just use the charger included.

Does it charge from its USB port?

If not, what kind of charging port does it have?

You know I'm a big fan of this phone, but yesterday I pushed the boat out and purchased a Galaxy S. (Yeah, I know, it's 4 times the price), but the difference in performance is phenomenal ! It's like getting off a steam train and climbing onto Eurostar !

Just waiting to know if it has an OLED display or standard LCD.

might give it another whirl then..it was a pain before, and i never really got to like the look of it.

I see there's another 2.2 rom released, by someone else now..might try that one later, see how that compares to Gforums one.

It's been updated since then.
Go - Hancent/Menu/Settings/Notification Settings/Notification Settings/Notification Sound/Music and select your own sound/mp3 ringtone.

I tried Handcent before, when on 2.1, but it would take over the ringtones, and wouldn't let me use my own, as it picked the standard ones.
Had to uninstall it to get my tones back.

@RFB

Try Handcent from the Market for your SMS messages. It's a HOOT after you change the settings around to your liking.
I chuckled when I got it looking like a HTC interface, but then got it looking like an iPhone and fell off the chair laughing !
