I love my EVO ... totally amazing piece of hardware and well designed operating system.
Although I have to laugh a little when I think about the processing power. Years ago I did virtual reality simulations for a large company, so I had a very expensive workstation with all the most cutting edge stuff. When you compare specs, the EVO makes that workstation I had look like a calculator.
And this is my "phone!"
|08-24-2010 11:24 AM|
Yeah....I've heard those older ones are the real deal.
Some people are saying that they sacrificed quality and functionality
for extra features and cosmetics with this new Rock.
It's obviously still built like a brick sh#thouse, I was just curious about the call quality, as that's the most important function of a phone...right???

|Ibuildembig||I'm using the original G'zone 2.0...I think there were 4 versions. After mine there was the Boulder, and now the Rock. We sell alot of them to my buddies who are equally as hard on um with great success. I think we have only had one failure out of 300 or so and it was in the first few days. I'm in the process of finding one like mine but with "push to talk" since verizon's new network for that is awesome and everyone here is on it. If I were you I would look for a used one on ebay and try it out before you got a new one. I do love mine though, my niece chucked it in the pool the other night...no problems ...gotta love that|

That says it all right there!
I'm not so much against the iphone itself,
as I am with alot of the people that use the damn thing.
This video really hits the nail on the head when it comes to that.
Some people just HAVE to have one regardless of having any common sense with the whole scenario.
There are plenty of other phones out there that are every bit as capable, if not more capable, than the iphone.
But if it's not an iphone, it's not as good.
You're talking about the "Rock", right?
I was wanting to get one of those because I too am kinda hard on my phones.
I read some reviews on that phone though,
and quite a few people are complaining that if you don't hold it just right
it's hard for people on the other end to hear you and vise/versa because of the added rubber inside around the speaker and mic.
They also complained about it locking up and having slow menus.
That makes me a bit leery as
$150 for a just a basic phone is a bit pricey.
Can you confirm or deny any of this?

The reason Tapatalk hasn't been implimented is because of some inherit security risks with vBulliten. I'm sure the admins will look into it more but they ARE currently having an android app being developed.
Check out Alldriod.org and droidforums.net for info on how to tweak your phone.

PS - Any thought from moderators or admin about this Tapatalk?
Rudeboy can give a little insight on the ease of registering for Tapatalk....
Thats if he cares too

|Ibuildembig||There are lots of problems with the i-phone, hence why their market stock is falling|
|08-23-2010 02:16 PM|
|08-23-2010 12:56 PM|
|Comicnut25||Well either way that video was freaking funny ! All valid points but nobody can beat the iPhone for the dependability no virus etc but yes AT&T sucks donkey|
|08-23-2010 12:45 PM|
now that i think about it
no cell phone pros:
cant be reached 24/7
save $100+ a month
dont have to carry that crap in my pocket
no cell phone cons:
no quick look ups
no easy access to 911
no hummer hunting camera
no work email
|08-23-2010 12:36 PM|
|Ibuildembig||Funny you say that...doesn't seem I am that popular at work either. But get me out of here for over 2 hours and I can't get off the damn phone|

|Ibuildembig||Man I envy that lol...they had a pager on me at 14 lol....now that I am higher up, I am attached like a leash|
|08-23-2010 12:20 PM|
|XV_||I sometimes wonder, do i really want to be reached 24/7, it was much easier to lie about where i was when cell phones werent around lol|
|08-23-2010 12:13 PM|
I love the simplicity of the iphone. and Sprint is horrid here. (as is verizon)
My old phones (before ATT went to the new(er) signal type) kept getting cloned and used in Mexico...those 2000.00 monthly cell bills scare you.
but I'm one of those silly guys that can't seem to find a good enough reason to jailbreak.
I had a 3G, it was good, but now the 4.0 is much improved. (I wouldn't trade it for anything currently available) But that's why they make different models. Me and the wife use "facetime" quite often. its gimicky, but I like it a lot.
|08-23-2010 12:13 PM|
|Ibuildembig||Worst thing is, the phones back then worked better before digital.|
|08-23-2010 12:10 PM|
|XV_||lol, dude i tought i was the coolest kid on the block when i got a samsung from sprint with a BLUE backlight and a walking panda screensaver AHAHAHA man i should have kept that phone|
|08-23-2010 12:05 PM|
|Ibuildembig||I do I do hehe...We have been in communications since 1959. I had the first cell phone in my highschool in 1991 when cellular came here. It had two options, send and end lol|
|08-23-2010 12:01 PM|
|XV_||who remembers the days when cell phones didnt have a contact list, had antenas, and neon green backlight with black text|
|08-23-2010 11:48 AM|
|Ibuildembig||I wouldn't have a smart phone anyway...I'm way too hard on um. That's why I won't give up my G'zone ...its even taken a lick from the forklift. We do sell a ton of smart phones though...the way of the future it seems|
|08-23-2010 11:43 AM|
Only thing that worries me about these new smart phones is trojans/virus.
While I don't like Apples approach to locking the device down, it did make it a little more safe and secure.
The android, that's the one I feel hackers are gonna hammer. they're already a few things in the wild to exploit weaknesses. I think it's gonna get worse, I'm really surprised it isn't worse than it is.
Apples working on a way to lock down the IPhone again. that's gonna be interesting because it's been legally allowed now so it can be unlocked. I'm not sure how that's gonna work out.....You buy one, unlock it, they brick it, even though you paid for it and it is supposedly legal to do so.
