    Its really not meant to be offensive. Just a place to vent about it so those of us who encounter these situations regularly can just let it roll like water off a duck's back.

    I have three:

    What ROM should I use?

    I accepted the new update and now I'm not rooted?

    iPhone coming to Verizon! Death to Android!

    :)

    Find your own darn ROM, read the forum before you accept any update because they all break root, and Verizon Wireless USA getting the iPhone won't kill Android because Android is a worldwide phenomenon that is already standing up to and beating iOS in most markets.

    Hello! I just loaded (insert ROM here) and it's awesome! I have one or two little issues, though...can somebody drop what they're doing and ask me if I wiped before flashing?

    And

    Do I flash the theme first, or the ROM?

    How about ALL the BS iphone threads... really this is an ANDROID FORUM, take the iPhoney crap somewhere else.

    ADMINS/MODS!!
    Can I suggest a sticky announcement that directs everyone thinking about posting iPhone BS to one thread (or at least a new 'off-topic' section) in anticipation for all the BS threads that will come tomorrow (regardless of what is or isn't announced).....

    Don't know why you'd want an iPhone anyways compared to the droid phones, even if iPhone came to verizon. I mean, ok here's a worse phone over all and oh, you can't customize either.
    But just my thoughts haha

    When I started this thread I didn't do it with the intention of making anyone feel bad or anything of that nature. I rarely tell people to search unless they ask the same question that's in the same area on the same page.

    It really didn't change the way people posted and I didn't expect it would. It was just an outlet for those of us who are here all the time and see the same threads, being created new daily.

    Poor Battery Life, Task Killers, What apps should I get……They still continue although I've kind of rounded up the task killers into one area. It doesn't really bother me to see them.

    I could have done this in a private area but I know there are a lot of members who get tired of seeing the same stuff over and over again. So I thought we'd start a list. And that's really all it is. Hey I'm still tired of battery threads but I still go in there and give my opinions that I have given 100 times over.

    So if you're new and you see this remember that some of us are in this forum many hours a day and see the same topics continue to come up. Feel free to ask your questions, yes, you should use the search first but we will continue to answer the questions we've heard before. That is what we are here for, to help each other.

    Very good points Hook and I will add that most of the people posting in this thread will also be the first to help you out with any question you have! Just my two cents.

    I agree...talkikng about the iphone being on verizon or whatever just doesn't seem to fit with DROIDFORUMS.NET. Its not an android phone why is there even a discussion about it?

    dancedroiddancedroidExactlydancedroiddancedroid Take it elsewhere... IMO the mods have been way to lenient on this. They're going in the right direction by trying to wrangle them into one thread but still... there's an iPhoney thread on an ANDROID forum, lol. Would save them a LOT of time and trouble if they would just ban such threads/discussions unless there is a specific purpose (e.g. iPhoney convert needing help ect.:icon_ banana:)
