    I want to know how many of you are still with the OM. I currently went from OM to G2 to s3 to N4. And now on my way for either a Motorola X or s4.

    Wow! You must love a new phone - the N4 is barely 7 months old! :D

    Haha yeah I know. I was hoping to start dev work with it, but I was a little late when I got it (2 3 months after release).

    Do you have an OM?

    I remember this part of the forum when it was alive, and full of questions and new stuff. I've had my OM for two years, and I had just recently switched to the S3. I miss the OM, but then again, it was time to move on ;)

    Yeah that's true. I loved the OM. Learning to theme, but I guess ICS didn't seem possible at the time, so I went to the g2 then rapidly to s3. I still have my OM. I just can't get it out of safe mode no matter how many times I tried. I would've donated it, but then again knowing that many have moved on or have abandoned it, I just held onto it. It has water damage, which is odd since I haven't used it all, and has been stored in the closet for a while.

    Props go to those still using it, I don't know how you guys manage to but yeah lol. Respect! ;)

    I still hold on to my OM. Right now I'm letting a friend use it. I switched to a LG Spirit. Got it over clocked to 1.78ghz and running quick. I had a HARD time letting someone borrow my OM. It was the first phone I learned to root and modify. Plus it was the first phone I ever bought with my own money.

    I still have mine after 2 years. Never worked up the courage to root it because i'm totally not savvy in that. it still works great, except the occasional low memory. Plus I get 3G in some cities north of atlanta.

    I feel you. I got it the day it came out. Been a while still have it here just stuck on safe mode. Why don't you try rooting it? Its not hard on 2.2.1 and 2.2.2 all you need to do is read each step twice before proceeding :p

    Still running Bobz ROM on mine. But I may be moving over to Sprint soon and maybe get an S4. This phone has definitely lasted me more than I intended. Plus it's begun to randomly freeze on me now after many months of working just fine. Be it software or hardware related, I think it's time to move on. I'll keep it handy for other utilities though. Maybe remove all phone functionality and make it a computer repairing tool device entirely.
