    My name is Ashley, though I am often referred to as Ashi, and I have a small obsession with swapping cell-phones.

    (Okay, small might be an understatement!)


    To date I have had the Eris, Motorola Droids 1&2, Droid X, and LG Ally. (The Devour perked my interested for about a week until I realized it was garbage, and I have no interest in the Global because I can't use the keyboard.) Before then I was a Blackberry Storm girl... but I try not to look back on my bad cellphone choices. Er... disappointments... :p

    I'm basically here to learn from other users, and to offer what knowledge I have gathered along the way!

    Anyone wishing to Droid banter, message away. Cell-phones are a subject I am very well versed in. :)

    Also, in the time I am not blathering senselessly about cell phones and how to work them, I'm a chef... and I am ALWAYS looking for good food related apps!

    Hello, ashley. Since you have had the Eris before. I have a question? did u ever have any problems with its bluetooth? I ask this because I have. Everytime I try to connect with another Bluetooth, my Eris won't. It will only pair but never connect. I've tried just about everything, and I've just about ran out of patience with it. Do you have any suggestions of what might be the problem?

    Thank you, guys! :)

    Soul food is the best! I absolutely loved that segment of my college courses! I always felt incredibly filled and happy after having a good down home southern meal. I actually approached college as a vegetarian and promptly vacated that choice as soon as we got into the good stuff! Heh!

    I would absolutely LOVE to be a tester! I actually frequent the local Verizon store, and one of the gentlemen on staff wanted me to be their "Droid poster child" because I've talked customers into buying phones FOR them! I don't know what it is about selling people phones, but it's exciting! :)

    Unfortunately though I did have the Eris, I have trouble with Bluetooth, so I don't dabble in them much. :/ I did hear this was a common problem with my friends, I might suggest calling tech support if at all possible. They helped me through my boyfriends Jabra headset debacle. :)

    Southern food is persuasive haha :) Glad to hear you enjoy it also. Good job selling phones and being offered the poster child slot

    Thank you! :)

    I need a job out of the kitchen for a little while, as much as I love food it gets stressful to deal with people and their unfortunately poor attitudes. I'm sure it will only be worse dealing with angry customers and their broken cell-phones if I do end up getting a job there, but... hey, it's experience! :D

    Well i work in a lumber yard but im trying to get a degree in computer sciences or software development. Also work on cars on the side (really just trucks that get damaged in the mud from buddies always breaking crap) and the occasional tuner car that needs a performance adjustment if you know what i mean. Anyways back to what i was saying about the public... it can get aggravating time after time and you just kinda learn to accept it or thats what i had to do. Sometimes people really appreciate your service/work but in between the good ones you have a few bad ones. Just comes with the public i guess

    Ain't that the truth! Lol. I have my regular customers that I love, but where my place of employment is located is unfortunately smack dab in the middle of the "richer" part of my area, so most of the people come in with a high and mighty attitude, and I'm sure you can only guess what transpires from that. I've had money thrown at me, and some guy tired to beat me with a bag of corn because my register isn't set up to cash out peoples unlabeled groceries! I hate to put it like that because not all rich people act that way, but the ones around here certainly like to! I guess it's worth it, though, for the customers that are kind and put a smile on my face! :)

    And as for performance adjustments, I know allllll about those! My hunk of junk needs fixed up by my buddy at least once a month, something is always going wrong with it! I think it's reaching the end of it's lifespan! Lol.



    And, thank you, guys! :)
    I guess this is a pretty aggressive shade of purple isn't it? Lol.
