Default Att employee knowledge...

What is the deal with att employees? They never seem to know anything about their devices. I had to pick up an lg nitro temporarily in lieu of the galaxy note and I mentioned the note and the guy asked me what is that. Seriously att, school your folks. I shouldn't be schooling them.

thats because most of their resources were spent on 'iphone' knowledge or sales.. St. Jobs saw to it that androids or "droids" were kept far from AT&Ts catalogs for several years..

Glad that bit of history is deaed.

I won't completely knock the iPhone. I had one for a brief time, and then traded back to android. then back to iphone...and so on...lol. For me it comes down to purely not wanting to be limited to what I can do to MY device. I love AOSP, because it is truly mine. I totally get off on the saying " It's not truly yours until the warranty is voided" LOL

I'll buy that for a dollar. I am happier every day that I see more Android devices on the market. Now if ATT would just drop ICS on my Vivid...i'd be totally content...but thats a whole new ball of complaints...

From the brief chat I had with a lady at my local store she seemed pretty open to Android. The second I mentioned I might get the Galaxy Note she lit up and said how nice it was. I'll be swinging by the bigger store soon to check one out in person and see how their staff is.
