    I'm kind of annoyed by the "LOL anyone without X who says X is dumb!!1" tone this forum tends to carry - who cares? enjoy your phone and let other people enjoy their own. Then again, I suppose this is the epitome of a fanboy site, so I really shouldn't be complaining.

    Yet those same people buy devices to do the same thing. I wonder how many other smart phone owners have attempted to prop their phone up at some point or another.

    I use the kickstand all day at my desk and all night on my bedside table. I absolutely love it.

    Mine is propped up right now, streaming the World Cup game, between my two work monitors (we cannot get streaming video @ work, stupid net policies).

    I always set my phone up on the kickstand to protect the camera. I love doing it whenever I go out anywhere, I have lots of people coming over to see what it is that I have, it works best if you talk on the phone (or pretend to) while entering someplace and then set it on the table (or where ever) with the kickstand. I've had mostly females (under 35-ish, so 18-35 kind of range) come up to me and start asking about my Evo. :D any time I have a female waitress she has ALWAYS sat down at my table to take my order, since I have had my Evo and put it out on the table. Well, almost always, women tend not to do this when my wife is with me... :p but at least right now I am living 300 miles away from my wife, so it seems like it happens all the time!! (in case someone asks, it is a work issue, and we see each other every other weekend, normally for 3 or 4 days)

    Let them all laugh. With LauncherPro or ADW enabling landscape, the kickstand is even more useful.

    I use mine every single day to watch the world cup as well as to listen to pandora in the shower. The kickstand allows the audio to fire downward and bounce off the surface its on. I think that makes it sound much louder than just holding it in your hand, but I might just be crazy.

    My daughter hates on the kickstand everytime she sees me use it (which is a lot :cool:). She actually thinks it's cool...but, I still get..."But Dad......a kickstand on a phone?!?!?"

    Before I bought the phone I thought it was weird, but now I can't believe it's 2010 and we just finally thought to put one on a phone. If my phone is on a desk it's almost always on the stand and everyone that saw it thinks it's awesome.

    I just wish the kickstand would allow for more angles. The fixed one right now is slanted a bit too much for my liking.

    when i got the evo, i was expecting the kickstand to be just a marketing gimmick, but i've found it to be quite useful
