Hmm. Must remember to check my T-Mobile bill for stuff I didn't order. If they are doing that then they deserve to get slapped down for it. But they're still a better value than Verizon or AT&T.

By following this guide you can set up a Mer – Core Based Linux that will run on Android device, on top of existing Android hardware and drivers. 


This sounds like you are able to convert an android (cyanogen mode 10.1 required) phone into a mer-core/sailfish based phone. Link from the article:

Heh. I'll bet that word doesn't translate to "became" either. As far as I can tell, it means "I'm hungry" ?

Ugh. LG has embedded a Tamagotchi into one of their lines of phones:

And the "personalities" are named Wooky, Soul, Eggy, and Yoyo.  I want one named "Steve" that tries to turn your whole world into one big Minecraft game.

Thank goodness it's 'Yoyo' and not 'Yoko'.

I would much rather listen to Yoyo Oho than Yoko Ono.

I got a phone. It's a Symbian phone. A nice phone! Nice camera! Looks and feels great, and some good apps. But Symbian is dead :(

Just wondered. I can remember someone saying they got a Jolla phone. What is you experience with it? I am thinking of getting one, or a Samsung galaxy type thing maybe??

I have dropped my S4 to the ground more times than I can remember, but you might drop it once and break the glass if you do it right.

What is it you are looking for in a phone mo?

I own a Jolla since xmas 2013 and I like it. It does what I want from a mobile phone, which is pretty basic stuff: Checking emails, occassionally answering them. Phone calls. Camera is ok, I use it mostly to store info, like serial numbers of devices and other stuff. Camera app is not like the one on an iphone, taking photos of kids only works fine if they are not moving too fast.

GPS is alright, map app has no voice commands and the route assistant is text only. But there is a HERE app for android. Android virtual machine is descent, unless you need bluetooth in android, which mostly does not work. 

You get a real terminal, bash and repos, so you can pretty much install everything you want. Heck, probably even Citadel.

There are some active coders for third party apps, there is a very nice working Pebble app.

The UX/UI is different from most other phone systems, but if you are able to handle and like a symbian, Jolla's swipe ui is no trouble for you. ;)

The updates come often, community feedback is heard, take a look at http://together.jolla.com for some examples.

They are releasing version 2 of the OS this year, with some changes to the UX. Take a tour around your favorite web video service for some optical impressions.

The hardware was already middle class when they released it in 2013, but is and was decent enough to drive the OS. It is not a resource hogging slug like android.

There is a hardware adaption kit, so if you run into some cheap used android gear you might have a good chance of installing Sailfish OS on it. IIRC, the requirement is that you can run cyanogen mode 10 on the android device. From there on you can transform the phone into a Sailfish phone, but without having the android vm on the finished install.

There is also a launcher for android on the store, so you can use your android with the look and feel of sailfish.

Feel free to ask any further questions.
