    Who is still on their *First* Q?

    I am probably jinxing myself here, but it has been about a year now, and I am still on the same Q...:foot:

    Anyone else have my kind of luck?

    I should be but I think I fried the memory card reader. I was taking the memory card in and out while the phone was still on (not sure if i should do this). So I went to sprint yesterday and they ordered me a repacment.

    Still on my 1st Q . . . .since March.

    BTW, I wasn't aware you weren't supposed to remove and replace the memory card with the phone on. Is this true? I've done so a few times but I pretty much leave mine in anyway. It would be quite a PITA to have to power it off every time.

    I've read a couple of times that you shouldn't. I used to in the early days,but I now power down. Not a problem as I don't change cards frequently. May only be a problem if you have your programs on it. Still better off being safe. I was only worried about the card but from the above post, sounds like it could fry the Q side.

    I'm on my 2nd Q right now which I consider my first because I originally got a silver Q back in late May because my cingular plan was expiring and I was shopping around for a new phone. As soon as I laid my eyes on the Q, I just bought in an instant. I paid $200 for the phone. I found out that verizon gives out a special discount to business customers because I work for a major electronics retailer. I found out that I can get the Black Q for $99 if I got it online through their business website and they would waive the activation fee. I went back to the verizon store where I bought mu silver Q and told them I wanted to return it because I could get a better deal through online. After some time, the verizon rep spoke with their manager and told me that they can offer me the same phone and deal. So I left the store with a brand new black Q with a discount on the plan! So I believe that I'm still on my first Q!

    First Q here. Still running original software from Motorola original Q release. Works fine. My theory is the "if it ain't broken" one. Plus I can still tether for free!!!!!!

    I wasn't expecting so many responses... From what I read around the forum it seemed like everyone here was on their 3rd or 4th Q at least...

    Still on first Q...did the update from 1 to 2...then from 2 to 3...purrs like a kitten...

    I seems that performing a backup and a master reset BEFORE applying any MOL updates is the way to go if u want to avoid problems.

    you are correct... they way i see it though; more people post to talk about down sides or defective Q's then they do when they have a Q that just works, check out many of the first post of new users is because of problem(s) they have w/ the Q.

    i'm surely not alone but i joined because i was buying a Q...

    1st Q

    I've only had mine a month and zero problems. I too was concerned hearing about all the problems and was wondering if and when mine was going to die. So many individuals have indicated they had their's for a day, week, or month before having to get a new one I've been holding off using it as a power user waiting for something bad to happen. I'm glad to see individuals who have had their Q for a long time without major problems. My concern is if the Q came out in 2004/5 (correct??) are there individuals with a couple of years or longer on the same Q?

    ON MY 4TH. I think if i have to get another one I will call it quits, but I would hate to go back to a treo, I never liked carrying a BRICK in my pocket.
