Pciked up my new phone and decide on a higher end one. Though I m not sure when 3D will ever be used.

Now I need to find a good ballistic app for a HTC EVO 3D.

Dual processor, 3d display, 16 gig of RAM. Still scratching my head over my choice though. Even though I'm a Network Engineer I've never been into highbend phones. But I figure that this will come in handy at matches and matches and the range.

ISD.. hey buddy..

Im lost here.. let me quote ya..

"Even though I'm a Network Engineer I've never been into highbend phones"

you need to tell me why they have to be bent, and why they can't just be closed up like the normal phones..

sweet

3D is good for movie down loads,,still want a iphone 4 but my carrier is always out of stock on them. These days a good phone is always nice to have best thing on my phone is the fact it has google maps and works as a gps. But it sucks cause it is hard to get apps for it

I'm not just low tech.. im like "proud" low tech.. thats cause otherwise i'd be a whimpering ninny.. (as opposed to a non whimpering ninny huh) .. This is all 100% gospel.. Both of us have cheap LG tackphone's ..actually think it's TracFone.. Anyway.. dirt cheap.. buy the min at walmart.. also dirt cheap.. course we have land line, and being geezers don't (didn't.. do now) text.. So we went the cheap route.. They work great, but the simplest units Walmart sells.. In the year we've had the phones the following has happened..

Gloria (got hers first) didn't know how to turn it on.. asked me to start with.. i gave her that deer in the headlight look.. She calls the middle girl (CPA.. yep im bragging).. The daughter started laughing so hard she started choking.. The call almost turned into a 911 thing.. daughter says Mom, just hit the red stop button.. remember theres only two buttons outside of the numbers.. Can't believe im telling you guys this.. I've bribed G not to tell the son-n-laws, as (for the moment) they respect me.

Next thing was me.. Were walking into a CVS drug store (what geezers do, we just sorta drift from one drug store to the next) anyway i have a call, and somehow i had it on mute.. couldn't answer the phone.. i had to stop a store employee, and have her turn the mute off..

We set up the voice mail box on both phones.. neither phone (gospel, you guys know i don't play there) has working voice mail, so obviously we can't retrieve any voice mail on either..

We learned how to text, but this was such an embarrassing deal, that after trying three times with the most understanding daughter.. every other word we would select a letter, and instead send the message.. so we had three of these.. hi hon we ha.(sent).. hi dear tr..(sent) damn th..(sent) This is fact and of course the daughter called and told us (in a nice way) to work out our problems texting each other..

I've actually gotten rather good at that.. however in closing let me tell you that somehow i have the vibrator turned on as well as the ring tone, and every time i answer a call while driving is panic city, as the phones vibrating so hard i have a hard time holding and opening it one handed.. Nope i can't figure out how to get the vibrate off..

LOL Greg

Love the story my friend,,only reason i have a good phone is because my carrier here is good at keeping my business by giving me a free phone every couple years. Then to make things better they make my plan cheaper buy giving me more uses for my phone, i.e. internet, GPS, and the such. Only problem i have is that every year the phones get a little more whimpy, but then again everything i buy seems that way. Guess thats what we get for getting everything from China, says it all in the name of the country,,lol. Anyways back to the phone before i go off and trip about that subject. I usually can figure out every phone i get in a couple days just messing with it. I hate reading the books that come with them so its all trial and error till i figure it out.

I've back grounds in multiple technology fields revolving around Data, Communications and Mechanical Design.

Mechanical Designer 1989 - 1994 went to school at nights for Computer Science.

Computer Network Engineer starting back in 1995 - 1997 went to school at nights for Data Communications.

Data Communications Engineer specializing in Spread Spectrum Radio, Microwave and Satellite Data Communication. ( Wireless networks setup , support, security monitoring and forensics )

Traveled all over the country filling Defense, Medical, Private, Corporate and Governmental contracts. Daughter was born and one day when I was picked up at the Airport she was hiding behind my wifes legs, she had started walking while I was away. She looked around my wifes legs and would not come to me when I put my hands out. She actually tried to hide from me.

I finished out three more contracts so I wouldn't leave the company in a lurch and quit.

Then got sick, liver cancer, transplant, laying around doing the self pitty party for a time, brother got tired of it. Came over and stuck a gun in my hand which I had quit doing a long time ago, and drug me to the range.

I'm alive again almost 4 years later, doing the leather, working on doing instructing full time and pretty much pissed at myself for the time I pissed away doing nothing....

anywho....

I meant end not bent, but I do know for sure that my last phone couldn't bounce! Though it did a fantastic rendition of the Big Bang Theory. Guy at Sprint asked if I wanted it back, told him no and he could throw the Shoe Box away too... LOL
