Any advice with this would be a huge help. I want to rid my phone of the Cingular apps and have an unbranded phone (doing the 1.23 ROW). I also plan on unlocking it via My questions are as follows:

1. Does the order I do this in matter?
2. Is the latest cingular firmware better than unlocked Palm (BT, voice, etc).
3. Any general recommedations or advice?
