Got a new phone

So after a while of rocking a razr I finally got a t-mobile dash.


It's a good solid smartphone. It runs on windows mobile and syncs very nicely with your pc. It has wi-fi, gps, qwerty keyboard and supoorts multitudes of applications. The only problem I had with this phone was the im service. It's much slower than a sidekick but I find myself using that much less on my phone anyways. Also I was able to hack it to use the cheaper internet plan with t-mobile instead of that expensive $30.00 per month crap.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

Don't mean to hi-jack the thread, but on this topic: I was wondering if anyone actually got an iphone here. I'm curious as to what people that got it actually think of it and I wanted to see if there are any personalized reviews instead of the ones you can simply find online.

2 of my friends got them so I got to play with them a good bit. I found typing on it really hard unless I did it slowly with just one finger. And I was too scared of dropping it. It just doesn't feel secure. The video on it and general interface is VERY cool but I couldn't help but feel like it was just going to freeze up if I hit the wrong thing thing or tried to go to the previous screen while it was still loading something. And the internet was SLOW. It's def a cool concept but I think it needs a little more development and a keyboard that slide out the bottom with actual buttons. Touch-screen key board just doesn't seem to work well IMO

The way you browse for music through the album covers, the YouTube gimmick...the iPhone will change the way phones are developed. There isn't any phone available that can match the iPhone's ingenuity, and this is only the first generation. Next-gen phones that are expected out in January will have the faster 3G browser.


If you don't find the iPhone touch-screen accurate, it's your fingers' fault.

I was out with some people last night and two people in the group had the iPhone...that thing looks more addictive than a crackberry. They seriously didn't put it down for more than 10 mins.

No, in reality it's supposed to be as much of an entertainment device as much as it is a phone. The "crap" does not reduce it's phoning abilities.

This morning when I woke I was pressed for time so I was unable to pleasure the mirror with my reflection. When I returned home I found that the mirror had broken its self in a depressed rage. Tears of reflection littered the floor.

I cannot notice you all but for those that are given my attention, God has blessed you.


This real life message was made possible by the iPhone.
