    *update*

    Well after a week of waiting, I messaged the guy that I sent my DINC to get fixed. He informs me that he never received it when it was clearly marked delivered yesterday. My luck keeps getting better and better :(

    *UPDATE AGAIN!*

    Ok after giving the tracking number, he emails me saying he has found my package and that the reason for not finding it the first time was on Saturdays he does not go through his mailbox due to not being at work (Since he is his own boss I guess that cool). Hope he starts to work on it monday.

    I wanted one of those badly, but couldn't make the trade with the guy selling it. I ended up getting an HP Touchpad that was rooted - hopefully it gets here soon :(

    If the guy doesn't refund for trying to fix the phone then yes :(

    He policy is though, if he cannot fix it you get a refund minus the return shipping fees.

    I may just start saving up and try to located a used thunderbolt or something 4G LTE

    OK. I have what might be a noob Android question, since this HTC Rezound is my first smart phone. When I plug the phone into the charger, I can't use the phone at all. It's not like it freezes or anything, but it just won't allow me to open any applications. Is this some sort of charging "feature" or "mode" that I can turn off? It's irritating the shit out of me.

    Do you plug it into a wall charger or a PC through USB? In case of the latter, pull down your notification bar, select USB connection mode and set it to Charge Only.

    Paulieg, if it's the wall charger, I have to ask if you bought the phone new. I had a new Rezound, and I experienced nothing of the sort. The only reason that would be happening is if it were in a USB transfer mode to a PC, in which case as Thrackan said you set it to charge only.

    Count me in.
    LG Optimus Q Android smart phone

    My most loved apps are:
    LazyDroid (let you use a web browser on a PC to remote into your phone and control and use things...GREAT APP...says only works on WiFi but works just fine for me on 3g!)

    Bluff My Call (lets you assign any number you want to show up on the receiving end of the call also has a voice masker)

    UlysseSpeedometer ( it is a speedometer works off GPS)

    TANGO ( make calls with video )

    My Tracks ( an app that will show how far you have walked or ran , shows how many callories burned and allows you to compete against others who use the app)

    SoundHound ( takes a sample of the music your listening to and shows all information about it, title ,artist, and such)

    Netflix ( can watch netflix instant streaming..Works okay on 3G if signal is good).


    These are my favorite free apps!:toast:

    It is the wall charger, and I bought it new. It's my 3rd Rezound (the first 2 had the annoying audio feedback problem many are experiencing). With all three, I've been unable to use them if they are plugged into the wall charger.

    I just picked up an HP Touchpad. Rooted of course, to dual boot with a CyanogenMod (2.3.7).

    Are you getting them from a corporate VZW store? I would go to a different store and request one. Sounds like your store has a really bad batch of phones.
