    Yes, us Evo fans have come along way. Infact I don't great one post i followed or advice that was given to me. Everything used at this forum has been very useful. No one has ever steered me wrong. Great post though.

    I had one also, not only was there not a support forum there was no Internet as we know it today. I paid $1000.00 for mine in about 1980 or so.

    I was so excited back in the day, and the phone, even with its flaws, is more than I expected. Coming from a touch diamond, I am overwhelmed by how much my phone can do.

    I also would like to thank all of the forecasters, wrong or not, who kept us entertained during April and May.

    My only problem is I have gotten lazy, and am not continuing to explore what's out there for the phone, and to use half of what I downloaded.

    Right now, angry birds has my attention, along with poker and pandora, which I am listening to now on my phone, hooked up to a sound system.

    Shout out to Bill, the mods, and all the other guys who have devoted seemingly every waking moment to figuring out battery life issues.:p

    I remember back in the day when I could be sitting in someones front yard and call them and it would be long distance because I was 25-30 miles outside of my carrier city.

    The first year I used cellular my monthly bill averaged $500.00.

    Bill was an active member of the EVO forums but there was basically a split between the board and some users left including Bill. He was a good and very helpful member of the community.

    Kelmar: This thread initially was talking about looking back at the Evo forum, at least that was my interpretation. Then people took it as "looking back at old cell phones" I guess.

    OH YEAH!! haha, I remember that time!! Gosh those were really the 'good ol' day'. I remmeber venturing in there a few times before I was a guide and it was just a wild wild west! lol. It kind of scared me away from the Evo forum. I tried to get my feet 'dirty' when I was a Guide and when the subforums were created...haha. I think the Evo has the most numbers of subforums! When other members in the other phone forums complain and try to riot about the subforums in their phone forum, I just tell them that if the Evo crew can use the subforums..SO CAN YOU! :D
