I dropped my Touch Pro in the toilet (not on purpose) and it still works great. Just sayin, maybe you got a bad one.

Re: Here we Go Once Again!!!!

My touch pro broke for the 4th or 5th time the same week the touch pro2 came out. If you are very polite yet persuasive you will be able to get them to exchange it for a touch pro2, tell them you need a windows mobile phone with a keyboard for work purposes, try to talk to a tier 2 rep as they are the ones who are able to make the exchange, no one will want to help you if your a complete Mc******* one the phone, trust me on this one. Being polite gets you far with verizon.

Re: Here we Go Once Again!!!!

I have been very patient with this phone and despite what some might think about my obnoxious post I have been very cool and calm when speaking with the people from Verizon. I will try again and with any luck they will give me a different phone and all will be well. Honestly Bikeandestroyex If you had gone through what I have you would without a doubt be pissed too! My phone is used to monitor several commercial buildings through there automation.which means I rely on it to deliver the text messages that tell me what is happening throughout my district,on average I recieve some 50 messages a day! So as you can see I am not just playing games and changing screens I am dead serious about the use of the phone. My phone is used to its fullest extent and I believe that is the reason it crashes and Verizon just will not admit it.

If you change roms, you can always flash back to stock rom, that will help so much with the verizon touch pro, Trust me on this one i had it for a year. I would suggest loading up a titanium only 6.5 rom, as manila eats too much ram up. If you need any help with it or with getting your phone running better feel free to hit me up.

Re: Here we Go Once Again!!!!

Like mentioned prior, get off the stock and flash to a diff rom. NFSFAN;s Roms are very light weight and super responsive and long lasting battery life. You can change the rom, when you are ready to return it, you can flash it back to the default stock rom and return it.

If you dont want to do that , then i suggest you need to have a "talk" wtih your employer and let them know..this phone isnt working out and they need to give you something more reliable since verizon does cripple their devices...

Schoust, I feel your pain. You are absolutely right about the phone, Verizon's crippling of it, and their lack of support for it. After thinking I had finally fixed the alarm issue, I sure enough was late for work this morning. They don't like hearing "it's my phone's fault." (long sigh)

Custom ROMs are a long road, the end of which is a better place than where you are, but NOT 100%. You can improve your situation, for max stability with NO fun stuff, go with Mighty 4. In just about any ROM, you just find different problems. Once you are used to the problems you know how to deal with, don't switch, or you'll become like most of the rest of us: stuck on a never-ending quest to "fix" your phone, accustomed to new problems every day.

That all being said, you should feel safe changing ROMs, as you can always put it back the way it was.
