Krishna, 20 Oct 2010Hey Rands, how do you feel using it comparing to other motorola phones?Never had a moto before, so i cannot compare. The milestone is a nice phone, extremely good build quality. Android is also excellent. Screen on the milestone is tops. Keyboard is not laid out perfectly but i hardly use it cos the on screen keyboard is better anyway

Anyway, MTN... moreThanks DT.
I'll pop into MTN when I get the chance and have a good look at Milestone.
If it turns into a dud, I'll chuck it to Capetown from Durban, so watch out if it comes flying over Table Mountain and hits you on the head (I used to be an Olympic Javelin thrower!!!!)
ps. GO SHARKS !!!!!!! You guys made the Cheetahs look like a schoolboy team.Hope we can do the same to WP next weekend.

Anyway, MTN's Data Plan aren't bad here:
R10 for 10Mb
R49 for 75Mb
R149 for 300Mb
Android so on.
MotoSat is free for the first 60 days offline than you must pay. I didn't apply for it because I using Google Map or Google Earth online.
Let me tell you Milestone got DVD quality video record, widescreen 3.7 with android 2.1 but become very fast with android 2.2.1, which bring more featurings.
Hope you will enjoy your Milestone.
I have got the phone and it is wonderful device!!! I love it, Android is such a great OS. But the keyboard could be a little bit bigger.
Hi guys, must say this phone is the best smart phone that i ever used. Does any one know when froyo will be available in South Africa
After flash the new firmware, now mine is running 2.2.1, however, the icon doesn't change, it is the same as 2.1, but now i can move to SD card, that is great now. and everything work just fine, 3G, Wifi... are ok.
However, i can not overclock it yet, can you advise me how to overclock it?

Ya, I see MTN have got the Milestone for a good price with R200 airtime (total R259 p/m). Just worried about buying it and having problems with it. I really want a good screen (resolution and size) so Milestone looks tops and slide out querty. Hope that their backup is good and there are no problems with the set. I'm in Durbs. Most of report on this site look favourable. How long have you had yours for? It will be my 1st Smartphone, so I'm sure that I will battle until I work the OS out.
Thanks, await reply.
PS. How good is MTN Mobile Internet and is pricing favourable (data bundles) as I'm currently on Vodacom. Their contracts are not good (120 weekend mins - got free calls on w/end and a/h with Telkom)and 'pay in' for a decent set is too pricey.
PS again. How much is Motonav licence in SA (voice guided) for Milestone.
Thanks again. Lekker bly.
[deleted post]In HK you can get one for about US$473. No contract and unlocked with free docking (and likely spare battery, extra charger cradle, and screen protector from most electronic chain stores)

In South Africa, You need to go on any MTN shop to find Milestone with android 2.1 out of the box.
Milestone is the best phone you can buy believe me. You will never buy any Sony Ericsson again after using Milestone which is also cheap now.

[deleted post]really its have my hand i am happy /its not have my have im not happy.
Seen a good offer on Milestone in South Africa. Don't know any current Motorola users. Everyone I've spoken to has negative comments re: Motorola. This phone looks great and I really like it. Should I buy it as I will need to keep it for 2 years on contract. Will it last (my SE W850i is 4 yrs old but getting tired)? Lastly how is Motorola's backup. Any feedback please!
