    Touche... Yes, Kool-aid is a delicious and refreshing drink and I like drinking it (I'm a fruit punch flavor fan myself).

    I just won't drink Apple's Kool-aid. :p

    To the makers of Kool-aid, you can blame Jim Jones for all of the Kool-aid drinker comments.:biggrin:

    Where did you see that? Everything I have seen stems from that BMX tweet which didn't pan out. Just curious.

    Thanks

    Not sure what that means, so I guess it's all in the frosting.

    Not all rom makers are joe shmoe's working out of moms basement........its my dads basement darnit! :)

    Just wanted to add..i thought this same thing from dec 2010-april 2011 when i finally got tired of waiting for froyo on the droid.
    I was scared to death of rooting and at that time it was much more complicated than it is now adays.
    Trust me if you were to root and install a custom rom you would never look back.
    But voiding Warranty is a legitimate concern. and I have to agree with most posters here that verizon and google did a bate and switch and intentionally led people to believe this was a google nexus device (to include having source for it until most developers bought the phone than removed it)
    with expectation of Nexus type updates from google.
    Even with that its a darn good device and i heard a rumor it even makes phone calls.

    I only hope for an OTA by end of April... This phone is no faster at getting updates then another phone.... Samsung Google and Verizon .... This is not the kind of service we paid for when we bought this device...........

    I mean I would not mind if every week my phone had a update.... Even if it was a fix for one thing at a time.... At least it would assure me that they meaning all 3 are willing and trying to fix the bugs.... Yours truly... The Forgotten Nexus

    I'm with you I know they have some of the fixes, fixed already we just don't have fixes to anything that is fixed yet. I wish I could be on a development group to help test some of these releases and at least get some things fixed.

    And before anyone comments on that type of group I have been a alpha, and beta tester and know while one thing gets fixed another normally breaks but then more updates means quicker fixes also. If they hold back til everything is fixed we will never see an update cause they never work out all the bugs EVER!

    I agree. The most important thing for me is the fix for the pin lock bug. I have punch in an 8 digit pin every time I unlock my phone even though my exchange policy says one hour of inactivity
