Fact is that I needed to live on the forums when having a WinMo phone. If I used an Android phone it would be the same situation. Because Windows Phone 7 has few issues I don't need to spend much time here fixing the problems. I'm able to spend the time I would have fixing/hacking the phone to do something productive. Thanks Microsoft!
No you mean theres no modding or themes for wp7. Thats why there isnt alot of users on here.

@darren.wlsn1 shoulda put a smiley or something on it to indicate it was a joke. Sorry about that then.

Also look at the time I made that post, how some people usually are when first wakin up.

Well, I guess you could put it that way.

Some people want to trick their phone out with as much eye candy and other stuff to make the phone prettier. Some need to spend unmeasurable time and effort to make it faster so that it is bearable to use and other reasons out of necessity. That's the way it needs to be with Android and WinMo. Stock roms just flat out don't cut it. Some of us don't have the time to spend doing the work that the OS manufacturer should have released onto the market in the first place to release a quality product.

Windows Phone 7 simply works for me. I use the phone a lot for real work such as making phone calls(lots of them), e-mails, calendar, contacts, texts etc. in which the phone is a vitally useful tool. Of course, I use it extensively for podcasts, music and twitter also and some reading as well which is real convenient.

Can the other OS's do all of this stuff? Yes, but the severe lag in Android caused by bad programming, underpowered phones and generally not well though out ways to get things done make the phone a lot more trouble than it's worth. iOS is really in the same realm of confusion in areas also IMHO.

Is WP7 perfect? No. Far from it. But......it's a huge step in the right direction.

Re: Where are all the Window 7.5 phone users

100% agree. WP7 just works for me. Spent countless hours tweaking the TP2 to run faster and better but WP7 gives me exactly what I was looking for. I only wish they would have included a grey theme. Coming from a "hot rod" car background, I liked tinkering on WinMo but having a device that runs fast, consistent, and reliable has given me more me time.

Re: Where are all the Window 7.5 phone users

Over the years I've seen a lot of different sites come and go. I used to be on Aximsite.com most of the time but as the device went away, so did the membership and it was merged into the parent site. The name of this site is PPC(Pocket PC) If you look, you'll still see quite a bit of activity on in the Windows Mobile forum. Pocket PC is a term that has gone by the wayside over the last few years. Now, everything is a Smartphone. It's all about marketing.

Re: Where are all the Window 7.5 phone users

Don't know about other WP7 users, but I'm too busy using my lovely Trophy. Since I don't have to update weekly, ask a thousand questions about why something doesn't work on this particular phone, I don't fine the need to post sor often. Mind you, the fact that WP7 just works is a really big letdown. Now I don't have to read about all the problems other OS's are having. LOL
