    Hey Talderon! Nice to meet you! I'm here in L.A. and am a proud Nexus owner also. Works great for me on T-mobile and I'm still learning a lot about it. Best story so far is that I went on a family vacation (35 people), and people with their iPhones/iPod touches needed to get online with faster speeds, so I let them wirelessly tether to my Nexus as a hotspot! I can get up to 3Mbps on this thing in certain areas! Any other oooh's and ahhhh's stories about their N1's?
     
  3. should we all follow suit?!

    Yeah, it's nice because I get coverage on T-Mobile in this area better than my wife on her iPhone (AT&T) and end up using my N1 as a Hotspot.

    As for stories, I work in a shared office space, and a couple weeks back, our network connection went down as I was running some code deployment scripts. Was not a good time. I immediately set up my N1 as a hotspot and got myself as well as 2 others in my office back to work while the network was down for almost 2 hours. :D

    Pic is TOTALLY Optional... well, maybe required for you... :p (j/k)

    I just thought I would put a face to the name. :D

    Now that you have seen the face, just picture me as I stand up to my full 6'5" height... :p

    LOL! :D

    You never know. I lived in the UK for almost 5 years when I was younger and plan to travel back there sometime on the near future.

    I want to visit, UK, Poland and Italy. :D

    I know, Poland might seem weird to have on the list, but I have friends and co-workers there. :D

    My wife is Polish, and I've been to Poland several times now. It's a very beautiful country, though beware of the drivers...some of the worst I've ever seen.

    Hello everyone in the Nexus One Forum!!! Nice to meet y'all!!!!

    I love the 'get to know everyone threads' on here :D and this one has pictures!!! Makes me feel like a stalker XD

    Nick: Roze
    Name: pronounce as Ro-ZE
    Location: Toronto, Canada
    Occupation: Accountant
    Hobbies:
    - reading (anything that's good to read but mostly Fantasy and suspense novels)
    - running (doing my first 1/4 marathon this Saturday :D )
    - Android (and anything pertaining to my Nexus)
    - rock climbing (indoor though, lol)
    - collecting coins/stamps
    - shopping (that's a hobby right? XD)
    Picture: N/A for Never Available :p (posted a 'cool' profile picture of myself once...got 3000 hits on my info page in 2 days...lesson learnt: never posting my pictures on AF again! Way too much unwanted attention -_-; )

    Well all I can say, I suck at guessing how people look like >_>;;; so far 0 for 0 : <

    I'm still figuring out how many females with Nexus Ones are in here! I have half a dozen 'confirmed' so far though they aren't 'regulars' (i.e. daily posters)

    P.S. Cool picture between Lunatic :D I love using my Nexus as a mirror!

    Gee, I hadn't realized that i looked at your info page that many times. (*ouch* ... the wife just hit me in the back of the head with something hard.)

    Compile a list, I'm sure you could make some serious money at a Star Trek convention. ;)

    I've had several phones with very reflective screens. I seem to be drawn to shiny objects.

    lol, you should be fine if it's not a pan :p
    I like people visiting my info page because they think I'm cool/interesting/informative and NOT because I of my looks.

    I should, but I think it's more profitable @ an Android Part/Convention ;)

    Shiny things are pretty :D

    Nah. Android guys are way too into their phones to be looking at women.

    Ah but they'd only have found out about your looks (which for all I know might have been terrible anyway lmao) because of thinking you were interesting etc

    ROFL and Trekies aren't (well watching Star Trek that is)? ;) I wonder about the female Androids.

    Yes my look's quite horrible to begin with :rolleyes: Just picture a toad with a bow on her head ;)

    Well when I had like 300 hits in 3 months and then it jumped to 3000 in 2 days after I changed my profile picture >_>;;; It made me believe that it ain't the posts that got people's attention :mad:

    Well, you could alway post a picture of yourself in a Star Fleet uniform and one in a green jumpsuit and we'll take a poll.
