I would no do it if that were the case. There are some that can be installed on
'phones and some 'phones are designed to make it easy. The reading that I had
done talked about 'beta' & did not really say how complete things were.

What I was really asking for was stories of practical experience. Ie what
really works and what does not; battery life, etc. I don't mind a bit of
fiddling but I do want a 'phone that works as a 'phone.
