Re: HELP! My mates think my N900 is a piece of crap!

Ah, these pissing matches. I have been involved in them a few times, and the most diplomatic way to end them goes like this:

Re: I will miss my N900.

I miss my N900. It's been sent in for repair because the vibrate motor failed (i.e. I can hear the motor buzz, but no actual rumble). Miraculously, I mailed it 10 days before the warranty is to...

Re: Leaving the n900 :( what now?

I would buy something from HTC. They apparently have a reputation for releasing the latest software in a timely manner.

Re: Are you with still with N900 just because you are in a contract?

Whatever "contract" I have now is with myself. I bought my N900 for $500, and I am on a month-to-month plan. By not being in a contract with my carrier, I save $20/mo.

At the end of my 25-month...

Re: Next phone after N900?

I am often very tempted to go get a BlackBerry. It's not as modern, but it is so solid! Until my N900 wears out, I'll stick with it and keep an eye on the developments.

Re: simple mobile 3g?

Their FAQ[1] states that 3G requires a phone that supports the 1700/2100 AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) band. The Nokia N900 appears to work with that band per [2].

Re: N900 as a remote speaker over Bluetooth

I think that a better solution would be to do it over WiFi via PulseAudio.

Re: Firmware 1.3 on its way????

If I'm hearing the beat right, I think we could have a new release come October or November, if PR releases are done once every five to six months.
