I wonder if the "next phone" will be a cosmetic change, or just guts....or both perhaps?
I definitely learned my lesson about installing leaks, but I'm in the same boat again. I have an Incredible 2, and it came from Verizon with 2.3.3 preloaded. Currently there isn't a software root method unless the phone has 2.2.1. There is a hardware option (XTC clip). I'm working on getting one now. I never thought getting the Eris last year would have this effect. I'm even running linux instead of Windows now
I think there was a point when Frisco would have had to ban himself
Not ban, just scold. A great thing to do to yourself now and then.
The Presidink in front of his mirror ^^^^
you guys still posting in this thread? cool!
running MIUI on the droid x now, holy cow this is a badass rom (more like a os replacemtent, but a rom nonetheless)
Good point, and a fine distinction to make, my message was poorly worded.
I think I have seen him over in the incredible forums...
being here brings back memories of law suites and onions
it really doesn't seem like that long ago that I was waiting for root for the leak because I wasn't patient :/
now I have an incredible running miui and it is sick!
I gave my Eris to my mom and she promptly dropped it on the ground and shattered the screen... it was a sad day.
Dang I miss your daily participation, Caddyman.
Get a Droid 3 so we can hang out (no way I'm getting an X).
idk what's next for me, i do have an upgrade available, but that samsung charge looks cheesy to me.
Do you like physical keyboards?
I didn't back when I tried the original Droid ages ago. Stayed with on-screen keyboards (Eris, Fascinate).
But I fell for the Droid 3 right away in the store, and it surprised me... now I like having the whole screen when in a text field, etc, especially when posting here, as opposed to most of the screen obscured by the keyboard.
Plus this thing is fast!
Do not like real kb's. Swype is the bees knees
Ybl8$ neeb roo67% shap.
^Typed with Swipe^
I ain't no good at Swipe.. gave up!!
You either love Swype, or hate it. I hate it.
I still like Swiftkey best. The thing practically types for me.
Swiftkey.. hmm.. well, it's all academic now that I've grown to love my Droid 3 slide out keyboard so much. Man is it solid. I remember the Mattel Toy Company feel of the original Droid's keyboard when I messed with it in the store a long time ago.
They've responded to complaints about that, it appears.
So cool to see all the big hitters on here again. All the guys that walked me thru leaks and rooting and roms. Still have my Eris, once in a while i get it out just to flash the latest rom. Thanks again for everything you guys did, for everyone.
Heyyy, I used to be a Eris Owner
I used to hate this phone, love this phone and any other emotion.
It was my first official android phone and I adored it's cosmetic
design, I just hated the lag.
I think in the 8 months I owned a total of 6 eris devices.
LOL i'd always switch for an OG droid and then i'd miss my eris
and then switch back to it. LOL
Hey carmen... didn't you go windows?
Geesh... you switch phones faster than Frisco changes avatars...
Yeah I did go to Windows.
and I Love Windows. BEST....OS...EVER!
But I am back with Android, temporarily just because i do miss having a Front Facing Camera so I am a mostly content owner of a Droid Charge and Xperia Play.
Once Mango hits Windows Phone 7 and Nokia releases their hardware with a FFC(or even Samsung and LG), I'll be dropping Android for good lolol.
And I just discovered Frisco was a Moderator now lol.
Do you still have an Eris?
Great to see you here, Carmendiva. How nostalgic.
LOL. I know it's like a reunion.
All I need is Smacky and this will be
Don't wish Smacky on yourself!
No, j/k... I miss his antics too, I guess.
Is he even on the site anymore? LOL I troll the Eris forums from time to time.
I haven't seen Ofthedamned in awhile either!
OTD has been awol for months on end.
No solid info about why, she never said anything publicly here about leaving, but her Premium membership has not expired. I miss her.
Smacky? Oh, he's probably got three or four other accounts here now.
