    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.

    Thank you so much! I really apprechiate the input. My hubby gets confused easily and blows things out of specks all the time. That's why I thought it would be good to ask here. Thanks again for the help! :icon_ banana::icon_ banana:

    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. ;)
