    I am right there with you. I am just hoping for it to be released sooner than later.

    I grew up in Mooresville. That entire area is a giant mess now.

    games are great, the remakes are really good. i have been playing ocarina of time lately and the nostalgia combined with the new 3d experience is simply awesome.

    my rooted NC has no problem displaying magazines or webpages. you can always download LCD Density Changer from the market and adjust to make everything fit the way you want. this will also allow you to change your density to download "tablet only" apps listed as unsupported in the market on the stock density.

    Poor Steven. As if sources and rumors didn't tease us enough... he's gotta go play with a phone he can't get yet?

    I don't think I could handle it. That's why HE'S the Mod, I guess...

    Relative to other places I've lived... it ain't bad. Traffic at Exits 25 (where I live) and 36 gets a bit congested, but big deal.

    Bigger issue is that 77 really needs to be at least 3 lanes each way for a good bit of that stretch.

    I've noticed an increasing amount of OT chatter out in the open. PLEASE keep all OT talk on the "hide" tags. You can do this by clicking the icon when replying to a post on your full web browser. When using the app you can submit OT stuff wth the following method: [hi de] post your comment here [/hi de].

    Of course when following the above example make sure to delete the space between the letter "I" and "d" in the word hide so the command can actually work.

    Let's all follow the rules so we can finish the ride safely

    Pretty please? Thanks

    So have I, but since I live in Charlotte and love seeing so many fellow AFers are from nearby, I haven't said anything. :D

    Of course, that could pose a problem if I go to purchase my phone and it's sold out. :eek:

    People around you must think that you are watching "The Notebook" on it...Or think you are crazy. One or the other.

    I think he might have made a run for it out of the store and security got him... damn!! So close! :)

    If he doesn't get a picture of him holding it in his hand it didn't happen. ;)

    edit: It looks like he photoshopped a picture of himself holding the holy grail, so I guess I'll give him credit. :)

    He's probably so distracted by the awesome phone that he's forgetting to keep us updated. We might have to wait till the store closes and they kick him out before he talks about it.

    Hey guys, thought I'd share something I heard today. I talked to a co-worker of mine who works for an indirect Verizon store and he told me that they just got accessories today. I guess he felt like sharing this with me because:
    A)I've done nothing but talk about this phone, and
    B)He said that his store usually gets accessories two weeks after the
    the phone launches.
    He thought that this was worth nothing because he had initially heard that the phone would come out around Christmas time, now he is hearing rumblings of next week. So, I know it is nothing new but I thought I'd post this for pure hope I guess. We need it right now!

    Hello all, I joined this forum back in April 29th, 2010. I'm usually very quiet and just like to read the chat. But I must say something about most of the members posting in this thread.
    Without you all I would be going crazy! It is truly a pleasure to see so many people get along so well and have fun while waiting on a device that should have been launched a few weeks ago. The stress is high but the talk is pleasant. I'd just want to say that you all are wonderful people and very entertaining.

    If he's uploading the pictures as an attachment rather than to Flickr or the like, there's going to be a delay - we don't have a way to do that from phones. :(

    And forget pictures Steven - surely you have your DX handy - let's see it on YouTube!!!!
