    I'm not to fond of the Razr. Nonremovable battery mainly.

    Unless the Razr has a pin hole reset button for hangs then I agree with Jr

    I have had too many times were my OG Droid locked up and it took a battery pull to reset

    On stock roms? Most of the hangs I've seen have been on less-than-stable mods (or my crappy old phone). She's never going to root this...

    If in a low signal area it is very possible if trying to do heavy net activity.

    One of my friends just offered me his HTC Sensation for a $100. Anyone think it is a good idea? I have until Saturday to let him know.

    Got my HTC thunderbolt! I already rooted and running BAMF rom! LOVE IT!

    Have a question for JR, I installed the wifi tether app that you gave me for droid 1 but when I use it on the thunderbolt, it looks like it starts the wifi tether then all of a sudden the wifi kicks in and connects to my home network rendering the 3G/4G inop?

    *nevermind*

    downloaded barnacle and it works good

    Was just about to mention FoxFi if Barnacle didn't work. That wifi tether was strictly for the OG droid kernels.

    Knew you would enjoy BAMF. Used to run it daily til I started building roms with a bud.

    Yeah, that's what I've heard since April. Getting very irritated with all of the delays. I saw where HTC had an official update up for like an hour last week, then it was quickly pulled. It's just like my wife grabbing on me, then rolling over and going to sleep. :banghead: :laugh:

    I love this phone. It's probably one of the top 5 phones on the market, despite the lack of hype, but damn...it really shouldn't take so long for an update on a high end phone.
