    A funny Evo story from this weekend, thought you forum friends might get a kick out of it.

    My brother, sister-in-law, and some of our family were planning to send my dad to Subway to get us some sandwiches, and we all needed to choose what we wanted. My sister-in-law and I both wanted to see the menu, so she took out her iPhone and I took out my Evo.

    "I want the Italian BMT with provolone and tomato and italian spices on wheat bread," I say after a few seconds of browsing a couple pages of the menu.

    My sister-in-law taps on her iPhone screen and frowns. "Is my phone broken?" she says to her husband.

    "Why?"

    "She already loaded the menu and read it all through and subway.com hasn't even loaded all the way on my browser."

    "You can look at mine," I offer sweetly.

    And by the time she picked her sandwich and toppings, her iPhone still hadn't finished the page.

    I love this phone.

    (And I was not on WiFi or on 4G either! BAHAHAHAHA!!!)

    Have you trounced anyone with YOUR Evo lately?

    ummmm because data goes over their carrier's service, and that has more of an effect on pages loading than the actual phone.

    well, i would figure a person with the screen name "GirlGoneGeek" would understand something like that and realize her phone didn't win, her carrier did.

    gives us geeks a bad name.

    somethings .. can be assumed to be known!

    EVO is only on sprint
    iphone is only on att

    she is saying.. her cell combination is better than her friends cell combination. she is happy with hers. it was a great story... funny. I am sure there are others that have great similar stories with other cell combination (iphone), but this is her thread and her life and her story.

    there is always someone in the crowd that needs to be explained the joke / story that spoils the fun.

    i didn't have to assume anything. she stated nothing about her carrier. as a matter of fact:

    yeah...i see nothing about her carrier there. if you are going to claim to be a geek, please get the technicalities correct. it's what geeks live for. you didn't have to explain anything to me.

    LOL, she thought her phone was broken! But it isn't, the iPhone is a decent peice of hardware. Her carrier, on the other hand... now THAT'S what's broken!

    Sounds like sour grapes to me :rolleyes:

    Do you always take things so literally (and seriously)? If so, you must not have much fun in life! :)

    Well if you understand,why you over analyzing the situation?and just about all the tech review guys, when doing a comparison, call the phones name instead of the carrier.

    Guys, chill out and stick to the main thread. It goes for all of you and not just a certain person.

    This is supposed to be a fun thread and not a flame war so keep it civilized please.

    So I can't ask you guys to chill out because you're ruining a thread, huh...

    Well, will remember to PM a moderator, since clearly normal members ain't allowed to say calm down. No offense taken, but instead of trying to bait me turn the topic next time.
