Thanks for the clairification and am glad you caught that before I gave away the wrong info. Something to consider, the HTC TyTN/Hermes is the upgrade of the 8125 that has not yet hit cingular, it sports twice the proccessor speed, a 2mp camera vs. 1.3mp, and supports UMTS. Also it's the hot seller right now so you may be able to find a decent deal that matches the 8125. Just a thought. Regarding unlocking of any of the XDA's, it's fairly simple and if you buy them without a contract chances are you'll be buying unlocked anyways.
