    Hubby said he had seen an artical in the New York Times that verizon is planning a bricking signal when the iphone comes out. Any ideas?

    slim to none.

    not worth worrying about imo. Link up the NYT article if it actually exists.

    Don't know if it does or not. Going by what hubby said. All I know is he hates that I am rooted and do so many things to my phone. Maybe that is why he said it. So I thought I would throw it out to see if anyone else heard anything. I am not trying to stir up trouble here. This is a BIG community. If there is some truth to this then someone will know something without me having to "link up the artical."

    I think it was just out of context. What it seems just from a quick google that carriers are having to work on getting the signals better considering new york has a lot of brick buildings. For us that are rooted verizon can even push system updates let alone send a signal to brick our phones. Verizon doesn't care only motorola does.

    Haha that's the truth. My phone sleeps with me. When I can't sleep of course I play. It drives him crazy. That's when I found the screen dimmer apk... works wonders. ;)

    Ah they don't have a port for the droid2 yet one developer said he might work on porting it to d2 dang those droid2 lol takes longer to get stuff that is really amazing. Tell your hubby not to worry I have had about 3 phones replaced that were rooted at no charge. No fault to being rooted either might wanna point that last part out lol
