    Exactly. Depends on your hand size. Extremely thin phones are kinda like really long....well, ...I'll stop there...they're fun to brag about but in the end they're awkward to use.

    I love when we have potential clients coming in. :rolleyes:
    I was once the receptionist here so the duty falls to me to sit here when we have to have a 'dog & pony show' day. Wouldn't be too bad if they moved my computer with a power cord but just putting the computer on the desk pisses me off.

    ??? They moved a computer to make it look like you had one but gave you no power?

    Yup! But I threw a minor fit and amazingly enough they gave me a power cord.
    This is crazy today! Just to fill desks they have 8 freelance graphic designers in.

    Glad to see that it's still all about smoke and mirrors.... Doesn't it make you wonder if the potential client is doing the same? LOL

    This reminds me so much of this joke:

    A lawyer was opening a new office. He heard the door open, and not wanting to look like he had nothing to do, he picked up the office phone and start spouting some "legalease" to make it appear that he was a busy professional. About then, the man that had opened the door walked in to the lawyer's office, and said, "hi, I'm the phone installer...and I'm here to hook up your phones so they'll work." :)

    Customers don't visit where I work ever (Mainly because I work in a secure area due to working on secret stuff). But they instituted a policy of no napping on lunch breaks at your desk company wide, because one time they brought customers through a non-secure area, and 3 out of 5 guys were snoring at their desks. So much for the dog and pony show, haha.

    Too funny, but true. Years and years ago I was starting in private practice and had a totally open schedule but to not convey the level of my newness to the profession or how young I was, I would only give the person a choice of one or two appointments when they called in. Lol, by the end of my career, I was hoping for that one open appointment somewhere in the week to catch up on paperwork.

    Boring would never describe it, no appointment meant no income, you spent all your free time drumming up business for your business. lol

    Back-to-back business calls with dropped mic on me again today. The first was 20 minutes in, the second was just 5 minutes in. If not for this issue, the Nexus would be a perfect phone. I just don't know how many more times I can be embarrassed on an important call, and I don't understand why it only appears to affect some users...

    Do you have Skype installed on your phone?

    No. Are you suggesting I start relying on VOIP instead?

    I had this happen a couple of times when I first got my phone (a few days after release) and there has been a lot of discussion about it in the VZW GNex forum. I haven't had the issue in a long time and I can't remember if when it happened to me it was before or after I loaded the leaked radios. I am going through the thread now to see if I can come up with some info for you.

    No, sorry, I should have been clearer. I have had the same problems, I got a new SIM, different variety and that did not help. I then got a new handset (almost two weeks ago) and have not had any problems since. However, I did not install other apps that use the microphone like google talk and skype as a test. i have just now re-installed skype, so far, I have not had enough calls to test it to see if it had any effect. I agree, it is a major frustration to loose the mic and then have the other party hang up. It makes you hesitant to use the phone as, well as a phone.
