    Hello, my name is Brandon. I am new to cell phones! I under went a bet with my childhood BF that I would never own a cell phone.
    Made it eleven years! Current adult BF got a new phone from his plan and gave me his new old phone? Droid RAZR, have to say it is nice to keep in contact with friends and family on the go.

    Bit about me; I build BMW e30s as a hobby and do metal fabrication as a side job/fun. I moderate a BMW forum called R3vLimited. I love being classy and cats. Lol

    That is my intro! And I do know my way around electronics... ;)

    It is an HD, and blazing fast now! Installed launcherpro and removed all factory apps. Simple and clean. That was the reason I joined up, found the info and stripped it bare bones.

    Well...one afternoon spent here and I am done modding the phone to my desires. Battery life lasted twice as long and I found out how to remove factory apps. I am a clean slate no games and useless apps kinda guy.

    It is weird signing into a forum and seeing under 9k posts with my username! Carry on mods and admins ;)

    Yeah....this phone is on a last leg now. My brother has the new S4 and many friends have the 5s, I really love the S4 for how big it is. Being that I have HUGE hands, I could see myself getting the S4 when my upgrade comes sailing in. Too bad I have another 1.5 years to go till I get an upgrade. I am so hard on my phones, I think I'll just get insurance and let the course run. But I heard I will just get another model of my old phone. Not sure what course to take now.
