    Love those videos.

    There's tons of them. Hitler hates Mustangs, Hitler hates Camaros, Hitler hates Call of Duty, Hitler hates <sports team>, etc.

    Havent seen a bad one. This one was pretty good.

    You can't you order a phone after your 2 years are up with NE2 and unlimited data?

    You and me both, though my DX is still chugging along. Have a few issues, but dunno what to do.

    Hopefully we get a release date from big red soon. If not, then I dunno man. :(

    On certain apps, when I hit the home button on my OG Droid, I have to wait 3-5 seconds for the icons on my home screen to appear.

    This is incredibly annoying.

    Note: I know my OG Droid is super outdated and that it isn't as bad on other phones. The problem is this should not be happening on phones with dual core 1.2 ghz processors with 1Gb of RAM.

    Yeah I loved them too, but for people who don't frequent AF, it might take away instead of adding to it. (My buddy was laughing hysterically, but was like huh? at the AF references).

    Roosevelt, maybe you should do a second one without the AF references, it might go viral...

    Are those apps installed to the SD card? All of my icons for the apps in my phones memory show up instantly, however the ones installed to the SD card sometimes take a couple/few seconds to show up.

    This one was pretty good, I'm amazed it lasted that long on Verizon's facebook wall.
    IMO the best was when the company that made the movie got YouTube to pull them all down, then someone posted one about the Downfall (that's the movie) takedown. Hitler reacts to the Hitler parodies being removed from YouTube - YouTube

    To keep our unlimited data, do we need to go through Verizon Online/Store/Phone or can we go through Amazon, Best Buy, Etc..?

    What is the most courteous way to walk into a Verizon Store and ask for the most techy/informative salesperson on the floor? Im getting tired of going in and getting a dumbfounded look with a big pair of...
    ( &#8226; )( &#8226; ) in my face and pointed to the iPhones. I can only drool and obsess over one thing at a time, and right now it's a phone :rolleyes:. Once I get my Gnex, my priorities will get back on track. But until then, I will not be distracted.

    I wondered how long it would last. Unfortunately - most large companies wouldn't see the humor in using a controversial figure in videos. The rest of us normal (I use that term loosely) people do.

    +1 - I agree

    I understand the concerns regarding live wallpapers and GPU performance; however, I highly doubt the IP4S is a legitimate alternative due to your disappointment.

    Have you seen how well the iPhone handles live wallpapers whilst also rendering 3-dimensional homescreens?

    Nothing should be affected by going through an authorized retailer.

    Really, 3 to 5 seconds? I have the same phone and it takes up to 15 to 20 seconds for me.

    Most of my apps (only five are not) that I can move are on my SD card, but that is because I only have 30 MB free on the phone app space.
