After hearing numerous times..

The comment "Why do we have to tweak our phones to get it to work right?", I had a thought just recently after reading it in a tread. Would we not be here if our phones were at par out of box? I understand serous issues, to name one, as far as battery goes, concering the TP. As everyone knows, developers tend to rush for deadlines and they will, it's our wonderful business world to blame. To my point, what if they intentionally leave "fixes" out for our tweaking pleaure? It's the jist of my thought, what do you guys think concerning this idea?

Re: After hearing numerous times..

I'm GLAD you have to tweak these things, I love it. Not that I'm saying its a catastrophe right out of the box, but I love to be able to completely customize my phone. I have to customize everything- when I got my laptop the first thing I did was wipe it & install a barebones hacked version of XP pro. If I wanted a phone that 'just worked' I would've gotten a blackberry or a standard dumbphone.

I think the manufacturers don't really make them hackable on purpose, I think they send them out to work fine for the standard user who just uses the basic features.

Re: After hearing numerous times..

i would think they would leave them hackable and potentionally flawed b/c they want to see what communities like this will do to them. they could have someone watch the forum and see what people are saying, wanting, and doing. its an idea factory for them and awesome phones for us

Re: After hearing numerous times..

All forums, for cars, guns, whatever, exist primarily because of problems or issues. The vast majority of people never join, or even read, and just accept the status quo. Forums are primarily for those with issues, or real enthusiasts.

Re: After hearing numerous times..

+1 Kabuk1, There is so much to making a phone "yours" When me and my friends get together we swap cabs and ideas all the time. Other phones are ok for ordinary people but we are not ordinary now are we!

Re: After hearing numerous times..

yeah, we would still be here if the phone worked up to par right out of the box. It's all about customizing and people having different tastes.

My TP worked great out of the box. But I had to tweak it. Why? Because I can. Thanks in great part to this wonderful community.

Re: After hearing numerous times..

i really think palm and apple have it right in developing an OS specifically to take advantage of the hardware in the phone, it is nice for a change to not be trying to get the dialer or GPS to work properly on a phone, and while the pre still has its own battery issues, they are nowhere near as bad as teh TP
