    I think that is it.
    You picked up somebody else's pro problem.

    I'm amazed people don't opt in for the insurance when they activate.

    I bought my Q from eBay and it is the best phone I've ever owned.My only issue is that I'm new to smartphones in general so i'm very cautious of what programs and stuff I download to it.

    Why don't you just do a master reset and then slowly (as another member suggested) learn what to add to your Q, programs or hacks?

    Although I have since gotten the Q9c, My Q1 Black was virtually a miniaturized laptop IMHO. Full blown movies using TCPMP, Full blown NES games using PocketNester (I'm actually playing Legend of Zelda on my Q and it does everything that the actual Nintendo game did!), Booming full blown stereo sound thru my headset, As a modem for my laptop using PDANet, Pretty decent web-browsing using PIE, Opera Mini, & Skyfire, .......and all on one charge of the battery!

    There's more but do you really want me to ramble on!??.. LOL

    Anyways, I personally think that perhaps you loaded and hacked too much, too soon.

    Why not also list exact problems you are having and with what.... maybe we can tell you how to fix the issue, if it's fixable...

    I've not had any major issue with my Q either (tho that Outlook thing is a pain :wink:). The speed is great. I've hacked it a lot but nothing can compare to it. I am thinking about getting rid of it because of some 1x-EV switching issues recently, but i'm dreading letting it go. It has served me super well and i have used it to the max (Player, tether, video, sling, gps).

    Ive had mine since June 06 and i I still love it. I do hear a lot of people say they hate their Q tho, but i sometimes think that's user error (not you, them).

    the OP may have just been "venting", it seems to be the in thing nowadays.......

    Seriously, if you want to improve performance tell us what's wrong. I haven't installed the crystal ball app yet so I can't/won't guess at your issues.

    If you just want to complain, thats fine. Just be ready for many a sarcastic replies that members may post.

    Sorry for your misfortunes man, but personally the q has been the best phone for me. Before i got my first Q in june i went through 4 chocolates, 6 LG V's, 4 Razr Maxx Ve's, and countless other ones. I got my Q in june only problem i ever had is the side scroll went out and i got it replaced, and i bought the phone from craigslist. Just call verizon if your really having troubles, say that thephone was a company phone before or something, theyll understand and give you a replacement. I now have the Q9m which i bough from e-bay a few weeks ago, absolutely love it, not a single problem and love the 6.1 i put on it. Thats my 2 cents. Good luck with everything.

    You want a little cheese with that whine? You are bitching....deal with it. You might be better off putting something like this on HelloMoto.com, where you can moan and groan and no one will respond or give a sh*t.
