What I was saying is that just because the absence of ringtones is important to you and would affect your purchase decision, many people are not so interested in "fluff". We don't allow ringtones on business phones. We consider it disruptive and unprofessional. I welcome the policy, ... I have the same rule at home....my kids want long, loud, annoying things they can go find another roof to live under and annoy the begeezes outta those people.
Heck, I'd welcome alotta things on my 650....but I'm not running out to replace it cause those features are not not there. The POINT is I am still using it despite those things because their absence is not signiifcant enough to change my decision on what tool i want to use.
The question is not whether they care enough at all, it is whether they care enough not to buy ? Going back to the "deli wars"...
Surur: "Hey my deli now offers cole slaw free with ya sandwich, bet ya think ya deli sux now"
Jack: "Well I do like cole slaw but I ain't givin up better coldcuts, better bread and getting my sandwich in half the time to get it."
Surur: "Oh yeah, well some of your deli's customers are complainin and your deli owner said he gonna start offering cole slaw next week so even ya deli owner must think he sux"
Jack: "Well that's all fine and good, I'll take the free cole salw if and when it arrives but it is certainly not gonna matter one way or the other which deli I choose...... better coldcuts, better bread and waiting half the time is still the key to my purchase decision."

Re ringtones - you are still missing the point - its not that they do not care enough about ringtones, they "know" the device will get it soon. It had no influence in their buying decision because They Just Know...

Obviously it didn't attract much attention and died, oh well.
Surur actually answered your post even though we all knew it was a setup on your part, so you could just go <snicker>.
I'm still not sure what any of this has to do with this thread though...

You were not really interested in what Surur had to say, you just wanted
(a) him not to respond so you can call him un-even and cannot critique WM at all, ergo his iPhone critiques must be wrong too
(b) him to respond so that you can go "har har, WM sucks too and they've been at it longer"
It was not meant to engage in a serious debate or for you to go "ahhh...you make a good point, dear sir".
Your other argument, the "everyone else is doing it, why can't I?!" really reflects your mentality.
Fact is, llarson, yourself and Jack keep throwing this thread off. You know it, but you do it anyways.
You consistently lack the ambition, need or capability to actually make coherent arguments.

i understand how it might be difficult for you to be labeled as wrong from time to time.
argument about "everyone else is doing it?" there you go again, switching it up while putting words in other's mouths.
"throwing this thread off?" oh yes, the original post/poster's comments were so full of insight and direction, so very thought provoking and the like. what a frickin joke.
i don't have an ambition to argue with you, i just like to laugh at your statements. you are a legend in your own mind, you talk a big game.
"throwing this thread off"
HILARIOUS!!! i'm actually laughing!

Chat is not blocked at a lot of businesses. Just because you company blocks it, it doesn't matter?
Maybe you company should block TC forum access, as you waste a lot of company time and resources here.
And the deli comparison, that was just plain retarded.
oalveraz still trolling? After he said he was leaving...oh, that's right, dishonest is his style, so I should not be surprised.
At least Archie knew when to move on.

MikeC....do you troll? i see just about everyone's name in this thread littered throughout TreoCentral. c'mon now.
as far as retarded goes, you should really read some of your own stuff, it's superb. and now you label me dishonest. hey, i wouldn't expect anything more from you, how could anyone, it would be hard to.
nice try, Mikec

I currently carry 2 phones (both WM). One is for work and the other for personal use. I'm considering getting an iPhone since I'll still keep at least one WM phone that will have the functionallity I need. I know it's overpriced but I really like the iPhone's sleek look and browser. Jeez, if only the iPhone had WM guts it would be a no-brainer. What do you guys think?
- 07-19-2007, 11:01 PM #1166
You care about about what everyone else thinks. You've been taking members down for a long time and it should never stop
Your the best troll around :bow: :bow: :bow:

most all of the posts have nothing to do with this thread. where have you been?
(1) Everyone else is off topic, therefore...
a. I can post elsewhere
b. thread crap
You consistently choose (1b) every time.
(2) This thread's topic is: Stupid/silly/not deep enough for me, therefore
a. I can post elsewhere
b. thread crap
You choose (2b) every time. Great arguments. Also nice how you stopped defending your dishonest question to Surur, which was nothing more than an attempt to flame.
:thumbsup: :thumbsup: You're so above it all, aren't you?
This from the guy who professes his disdain for Palm and everything Treo, who supposedly owns an iPhone, who insistently posts here at Trecentral.com despite no one agreeing with him and who feigns shock that people here disagree with his "posts" which are as vacuous as his arguments...
Yes, the honorable oalvarez.
Now I cede the floor to Surur, to continue posting those great quotes from irritated iPhone users, so we may continue to gloat (and aggravate oalvarez).

The Mobile OSX says it multitaks but that's really unnecessary imo on a phone - as long as the ransitions between apps are quick. And actually judging from some recent mac forum comments it really just stores the data in each app (i.e. suspends it) until you return to it (ppl have seen downloads and email fetching pause as they switch apps on the iPhone). POS does this already but depending on how complex the program is it can take 4 secs of white screen. SO improving the OS to get almost instantaneous transitions via better memory processing etc will do fine for me. Of course new snazzy graphics like Beryl/Compiz onb a treo won't hurt at all either, but I think the app-switching is more attracctive on the iPhone than the apps.
Anyway it still sucks in it's current locked & limited incarnation (just going back on topic you understand? )
