Community update: The 850 MHz issue

Agreed, I'm in California as well, and though I bought a pre-paid T 
Mobile card, it doesn't work either because of the 3G issue.

It would seem the 850 issue plus the 3G issue has just 'bricked' my Neo 
(in a metaphorical sense) without me writing a single line of code.

And given that the GTA02 will have the same 850 issue, plus that we 
haven't heard any new news on the 3G firmware upgrade for quite a while, 
my dream of developing for the Neo is starting to fade away. (Michael 
informed us back on Oct 13th that they were just working out the 
'distribution terms' for giving us a firmware patch -- what's the status?)

I don't want to start another thread like the other guy did a few months 
back bout "convince me to keep my Neo" but now I've got two major 
strikes against me using this phone. What's next?
