    In exile
    1.) This is sprint. 2.) Every company does that. 3.) It would be next to impossible to tell the true number sold. 4.) I do not think anyone really cares.

    Atleased they owned up to it, they could have just let it go.

    What about how Apple always skews its figures?

    Like saying it sold XYZ million iOS devices (meaning all media players, iphones and ipads) when they are disctinctly discussing their phone?

    They do the worst skewing of figures i've ever seen. Sprint is far from bad.

    Real facts or not, how many units sprint sells has not baring on my life... Probably not anybody else's either. I saw that first thing on engadget this morning and was like "that sucks... oh well, what's for lunch today?" It's no skin off my scrotum if sprint sells 5 of them or 5 gazillion billion. Get it yet?

    No, he doesn't get it, he'll continue to make threads bitching and talking badly about the EVO until he eventually gets banned because nobody on here want to listen to his bs, some people just don't have a clue.

    Ban? Surely you jest. I'll take my chances when compared to some of the responses to a legitimate news story.

    You tell me. What was the decision process the previous day when the statement was made? So you are saying they are incompetent instead?

    You wouldn't get those responses if you weren't starting threads in a forum for a phone that you don't own, never wanted to like in the first place, and continue to complain about that is full of people that do like the phone and do/want to own it. Please go about your business someplace else and stop creating these threads that are meant to anger everyone else. Good day.

    I am saying that they, like every company, are run by people who make mistakes. Like you, in this thread, talking in a condescending manner.

    I'm just trying to see where the forum rules state only positively spun threads are accepted. No luck yet. Maybe you can point the way.

    he might be jesting but I won't be.

    Precisely.

    Therefore i am closing this thread.

    If I see another one like it it will also get closed the member banned.
    Simple as that.

    Its one thing to say "I have issues which are beyond my control to resolve" or "the phone does not live up to my expectations", but its totally something else when the sole purpose to to start trolling unnecessary threads to start arguments.

    TS out
