In the hopes that there is still someone around, might as well do something that most everyone has: cellular telephones. Discuss the good, the bad, etc.

Might as well start with me.



I picked one of these up at a goodwill store for $16 with a USB charging cable. Nice old phone, but about 7 years old. She runs Wifi. Can't really complain much about that. Windows Mobile 5, 1.3 MP camera, Bluetooth, etc.
Just use it for the Wifi.

I picked my cellphone because laser was in its name. That's pretty much how I roll.

This is what is known as a 'BlackBerry' or...BlackBerry 9015 3G. I don't know why it was called a BlackBerry. It doesn't look, feel and sure as hell taste like one.

Anyway, it was destined for the bin until a new notification saying that an update on the OS was available and now...it's actually okay.

I picked this up second hand for £25 and the RRP should have been £130. I think I got a good deal there.

Mine sucks right now. It's an old Samsung Galaxy S-I, and I need to upgrade.

It's a nice phone, but it's been getting steadily glitchier and glitchier. These things are not made to last, sadly.

HTCs are hit or miss. They have plenty of units that work like Jesus, then have plenty of units that act like rebellious teenagers.

Basically a means of hacking it.

I don't see a point in hacking it. I can already do all I want with it.

He's saying when it gets really bad, install the custom kernel.

The kernel is free, it's not really hacking it but patching the kernel to gain performance boosts and battery life. If I had an android phone that's what I would install on it.

I say hacking, because on paper, that's pretty much what it is. Taking the stock kernel, and replacing it with a custom one. It's like modifying a car, just legally.
