    Hell, I'm sending my phone to Theory to set it up as I have never owned a smart phone and my contract is up. I don't know what I'm doing with this technology stuff and I used to work for Motorola making chips in the fab.lol Free dinner on me, if you set it up for me. I don't know any 12 year olds or I would ask them.

    I am due for a new phone this month (my old blackberry has pretty much had it and I certainly am not getting another; the Titanic had a better life expectancy than RIM does). At this point, my frontrunner is the Motorola Droid LAZR maxx. I still may wait a little to see if they update it to Ice Cream Sandwich, but the battery life really is attractive.

    I just went the other way and got rid of my Android Smart phone. I tried it looking for a GPS system and found it lacking in a lot of ways as well as hating text messages and such. My wife and I decided for use it was a waste in monthly fees to have all the extras without using them so we went back to a straight on cell phone with out text or any other thing such as that. Different strokes I guess.

    I just got a Nexus Galaxy S for my wife and my oldest daughter. My wife makes phone calls and face books, my daughter facebooks, and just adjusted the orbital axis on the international space station! lo!

    You sound like my father Joe. When he bought his last phone (which he rarely uses, and only as a phone), he tried to find one without a camera. I had to explain to him that this would be hard to find! I told him to just forget it has one, but that wasn't enough for him.

    It's almost a point of stubborn pride for me that I don't have a smart phone yet either. The way I work/live, it has just never seemed worth it to me. I do text message all the time though. My friends and I communicate via text message far more often than we actually talk on the phone. It's the only feature I can't live without on a phone.

    Nice thread. Seconding the suggestion to root the phones, the added power is totally worth it. These days it's pretty simple to do, too. Coincidentally, I have a Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket in flight to my house right now, and a handful of Ice Cream ROMs to demo when it arrives. Almost as exciting as waiting for a new knife to show up.

    Almost.

    Be careful, the warranty and/or insurance does not cover leaving the damn thing in your shirt pocket on laundry day; not the first time, Second Time, OR THIRD TIME!!!!!
