/\ well, Apple plans to sell 40 million before the end of the year (they've already pre-sold 20 million), so they probably won't miss you.

Checkout Pioneer AppRadio 2. Uses MHL to connect your phone to the deck, although you need an adapter if you want to connect a Galaxy S3 since Samsung used non-standard pinouts for video. That's not too much of an issue though since you can just buy the correct cable when you do the install.

Doesn't look simple to me. Download this, check that tweak this etc etc. If you have the extra time and effort to make all that work like an iPhone already does, kudos to you!

Not sure why anyone wants to sync their phone to their computer?? Apple has the iCloud and Android has the Google Cloud - done. I am running a Mac at home (along with Linux and Win7) and use multiple cloud services just fine. Transferring/Sharing between cloud implementations is well supported.

@Steve G - those links detail options to sync Android phones with a Mac. If you don't use a Mac or care to sync with one (cloud is better) then Android indeed needs zero tweaks to work like iOS.

I am most likely going with the Lumia 920 which can sync with my Google cloud as well as Sky Drive. I have no intentions of trying to sync with my Mac - don't see the point.

I got my tracking for my pre-order woooo. The Lumia 920 looks great, I have a 900 as my main device right now. I will be picking a 920 up as well.

Do you know if it will run on T-mobile's network in HSPA 3g? My wife misses her iPhone since we switched to T-mobile.

That is what's being reported. I dont have a live T-Mo sim to test it with though. So I can only verify AT&T works.

Did you have an AT&T nano SIM to test with in the Verizon iPhone 5? Or did you cut one down to shape?

From what I've read, you can't cut down a T-Mobile standard or micro SIM card and have it work properly in an iPhone 5. Has this been dis-proven yet?

I cut mine down.

RedmondPie says you can cut down a normal sim. I cut a micro to a nano. I didnt use that guide, I just lined up the iPhone 5 sim with my AT&T sim and started to hack away.

That's the map app. Anything that isn't a place would give the same results. Nice try though.
