It would be really freaking awesome if I could get WP7 and not have pay $40 a month minimum for VOICE service I never use! I need prepaid WP7.. PLEASE!


I have a windows phone 7 with just using wifi you don't need a sim card or data plan to start it up. Once you boot it up just turn on your wifi and you can go the marketplace and surf the web.


This. You might be able to get one off Craigslist (eBay prices were all high).

I keep my Focus on airplane mode and use wifi for everything.

I wanted to like this phone. Got it the week it came out (Samsung Focus) and gave it a chance but switched back to the iphone4 last week and I am so happy that I did.



Well of course, you got the samsung focus.. HTC is what you should have picked up.. But I had an iphone, my wife has one... Blah.. Dont see the appeal other than being a solid device as apple makes good stuff.... People will buy anything apple, and next year do it again, stand in lines all day and pay them hundreds to do it.. That is what bothers me.. The fact most people I know including family that own the iphone feel intitled, and will waste their day to stand in line EVERY YEAR FOR the next iphone.. sickening.

That got pretty good reviews, didn't it?

Battle for Hoth is butt-hard after a while. I mean too hard to be fun. It's very unlikely you'll be able to get all the Achievements either.

But if you would like a tough tower defense game, it's not a bad choice.

Well of course, you got the samsung focus.. HTC is what you should have picked up..


The vast majority of reviews prefer the Samsung Focus over the HTC WP7 phones. The main factor is the Focus has the best screen of any WP7 phone.

Cool. Thanks for the info.

I guess I have a week to decide although I'm leaning towards "pass" since I just bought Frogger lol...

Trying the trial now. Looked pretty bad from the youtube videos i've seen. No wonder thing TA score is so high.

http://www.wpcentral...x-live-march-16



Also note the following:

"Full House Poker’s integration with the console version. The Xbox 360 game launches on the same day as the WP7 game. Experience and money is shared across both platforms, so progress made in one game automatically transfers to the other. It’s the most complete console-to-WP7 integration so far."

That is cool! Hope we get more games like this!

ps. Battle for Hoth is not fun. Pass.

I was playing Flowers on my Focus today and now I'm pretty addicted to getting gamerscore on my phone. Next up is Fruit Ninja.

Rocket Riot is very good. The graphics and controls are both great. It's a little shorter than the XBLA game, but for $3 you can't beat it.

The HTC Arrive comes out this Sunday, but I'm not sure if I want to get it then or if I'm going to wait for it to go on sale...

Cool thread and I will find it very useful when I get the Arrive.

Dammit, I keep hitting the home button when I'm trying to shoot stuff in Rocket Riot. Stupid fat fingers.

I do with more apps would use a 'confirmation' screen before exiting to home, instead of exiting when you accidentally press the button.

That's not really a deal, Zohar, but you should post about it in the WP7 discussion thread. Glad to see CAGs developing for the platform!

I was playing Flowers on my Focus today and now I'm pretty addicted to getting gamerscore on my phone. Next up is Fruit Ninja.


I hated the last achievements to Flowerz. I finished the all but the play 100 games within about the first 30, which meant I spent the next 70 or so just mindlessly tapping the screen. I have never hated a game more than I hated Flowerz. It might have been a bit better if I could monitor my stats, but it just seemed like that last achievement would never come up....

Yeah, I can't stand Flowerz at all. I got a few Achievements and then deleted it from my phone.

(BTW Zohar, you didn't need to delete your post. :) )

I was mistaken, sorry. :( Once you have a WP7 device tied to your Zune account, then you can buy stuff from the PC.
