Now if VM supported their phone and did regular updates on the android OS then maybe guys like g60madman and ziggy and so many others wouldn't need to make better ROMs with more up to date android OS.Yes it would be nice to have the best and fastest all the time in the phone world but if we got it from the phone company's then maybe people won't be inspired to make the phone better cause it will always be better.The phone company's lack of updates led to the inspiration of the ROM developers on here and many other sites to go and MAKE the phones better THEMSELVES.If VM had kept the MT up to date with gingerbread then ICS would you have ever come to this site to see if you could make/get the phone to do better?That's all you have to ask.While I do agree with you in part about your beef with VM and others like them I feel that VM's lack was picked up by the great ROM developers on here and other sites.
