I just bought a new unlocked HTC MyTouch 3G from Newegg this past President's Day weekend,

"contract free". The specs list it as having Android OS v1.5:

Newegg.com - HTC T-Mobile myTouch 3G White Unlocked GSM Smart Phone with Android OS

-Product

I intended to just use my existing T-Mobile prepaid account and just enjoy the phone using

wi-fi. The problem is, I cannot log into Google using the phone b/c I don't even see wi-fi as

an option. One of the big reasons I bought this phone was to use wi-fi to get my apps. I

don't need 3G service.

Here's some screenshots:

So what can I do?

Can I "root" into Android OS v2.3? Would that give me wi-fi capability? If so, how would I go

about doing that?
