EVO died

Well two days ago my EVO ask to do update abdicate course I said yes. It took about ten minutes and came back on then a minute later it asked again for an update. Well after that I died. No power I’d life what’s so ever . I even kissed it thinking I cam wake it from the dreaded sleep it went into. Bit no it was truly dead. I took it up to Sprint and after a half n hour they said it was toasted that they would overnight for me. This is scary for i as stood there, at  least three other evo users also had dead phones. Man I hope its nothing big for I really like this phone. Can’t wait for the 2.2 Android software to come out. Other than that don’t download the new update and you should have no problems

EVO wow

 Been a while since I blogged anything so what’s up? I had to go get my brothers phone fixed and I just happen to be on the day that I was on vacation and the same day that sprint released the new HTC EVO phone. Oh well I decided to get one. Love it. Easy to use and very nice smart phone.

IMG_0267Here is a pic of the phone along with the palm pre. It’s longer and wider but that ok since its all touch and a very big and colorful screen. Beautiful colors and it looks real good on pics and HD vids. Love the  keyboard. I have already written a blog with a word press widget. It was very smooth and easy. It also takes very nice pictures with the 8mag camera. Hell this camera has more megapixels then my old rebel 300d dslr camera. Lots of apps even most of them are just a waste of money and time. The phone is even very cool. I hooked it up to my sync in my truck and it works great. Loud ring tones, speaker is good. Battery is so-so. I charge mine at night and when ever I’m in my truck I have it charging so I have not had it go down yet. Could be better. I heard rumors that they will be coming out with a wireless charging like the palm has the touchstone. HTC is to have one. That would be great. here are some other pics of the phone.

Pre’ Phone Rocks

Well here we are again. I finally splurged and upgraded my phone. I went with the new Pre’ from sprint. Love the phone so far. Have to get it used to it but so far love how it works. Downside is that I had to upgrade t data package for everything to work. But hey so far it’s worth it.
Love the compact size and the keyboard is not too bad. I had the rumor first time around but I wanted something with more computer power… I did have some problems setting it up for contacts. I wanted to use yahoo for most of my contacts were from there but contacts don’t play well with yahoo. After the sprint store set up my phone with contacts I then went and set up Google. I couldn’t get it to share. So after getting some uumm programs ? I uumm hack it and still couldn’t get it to sync correctly. I dumped my contacts and had to go back to sprint to have them reinstall it.
What you want to do is make sure you set up your Google Gmail account first. Then set Google Gmail for default contacts then everything will sync correctly. Other than that little contacts mishap I had no problems yet. Or major problems. Now and then when you hook up to the power block it keeps beeping that it’s done charging. Just make sure it’s on the base even and solid and it works fine.
I won’t go into details of how to hack the phone but since the phone uses a basic Linux os, all you have to do is root your phone and if you know programming the sky’s the limit. Check out sites for WebOs and they will take you thru it better than I can. With the ease of use and with more apps coming out the Pre’ will start to chip away at the iphone. Never had the iphone but always thought it was more of hype then its worth. Since I got my phone for under $200 I get it at a great price. Phone is small and compact, bought a holder from a website for $1.50 and it’s the best holder I ever had. Clips to belt rotate and unholster phone with one hand to answer with no problems.
Screen on the phone is very nice, have a pick of Megan Fox on front screen and wow just want to cum for here ? hehehe. Phone calls are nice and clear. Phone ringer’s defaults are low but I have put an mp3 song as a ringer and it nice and loud for my place of work to hear. I still can’t get the on screen keyboard to work. That would be great to be able to type on screen without having to open the keyboard up. Have some cool games like rabbit hunt. Nice and fun game. Vids are nice and clear.
So I rate the Pre’ phone 8.5 out of 10 only because its first productions and a lot more tweaks still need to be done. More apps need to be released. But other than that as a phone it’s great.
