    So here's the deal. Completely new to wp7 and would like to customise tile colours and also have the ability to take a screenshot. It seems like U have to unlock the phone to do this. Where do I start? Lol. I have a samsung omnia 7

    You'll have to unlock your phone [official dev or chevron unlock]. Then you'll have to interop unlock your phone[][XAP] Internet Sharing + Interop Unlock all-in-one for Samsung Phones - xda-developers, then you'll have to place the advanced config xap on your phone. Find the screen capture xap then place it on your phone. Enjoy.

    I've had wifi problems after doing that interop unlock, so proceed at your own risk. Other have stated that they haven't seen any issues at all.

    Many thanks for a quick response. Could you tell me what are the benefits of unlocking a wp7. What would I be able to do that I wouldn't before? Are there any real killer apps after unlocking?

    Well. You can add custom tike colors, which is the main reason I did it. I've also added internet sharing. I've added several apps that were not available for Samsung phones. Its worth the effort if you like tinkering with your phone.

    Are you aware if I would be able to connect to hidden wi-fi networks if I did unlock?

    You can already connect to hidden Networks with Mango SilverCha0s, no need for an unlock. :)

    I can no problem here, same phone. Just hit advanced and it will ask you for the hidden network names. (Up to 3)

    Works fine. Don't know why you can't. :(
