    I have had it! I didn't want to be that person, but M$ has failed humans by creating this so called 'windowz phone. As is customary, let's fast forward through all the fluff about how much I wanted to love the phone, I did this or that on iOS/Android. We all know those operating systems are like HAL and the WOPR respectively. Here's my laundry list:

    1-It doesn't do everything. That's an epic fail right there.

    2-No slap and tickle at noon. My other no-name phone could do that right out the box.

    3-It doesn't have a no name browser for me to get to youpron. Heck, my Chinese phone on Metro POS had it. Took me 10 force closes and 20 minutes, but I don't care. I eventually got my fix.

    4-There's no Snake in X-Box Live! Come on Nokia! This isn't rocket science. That should be there by default.

    5-My camera sucks! It doesn't make my blow up doll of a girlfriend look like Sofia Vergara. My vga camera on my Sanyo flip phone on Sprint from 2004 took better photos without a flash.

    and my biggest gripe.....

    Zach Morris wouldn't be caught dead carrying this travesty!!!!! Take that Woz!

    That's it! Who's with me that this phone sucks? If so, keep starting individual threads in the same reasons you don't like it and make sure to either ask if you made a mistake, threaten to return it, or call everyone that has one a Beta Tester and put a big ol' letter B in your sig indicating their support for windowz phone .007.

    "Lighten up, Francis." - Sgt. Hulka

    At least some get it. Seems like whether it's levity, b*tchin, or whatever, some won't like what you post. That's apparently how life goes because not everyone is going to agree 100% on ANYTHING posted. Whether it's politics, right to life, the Trayvon case, or even which OS/Phone to like, no one will agree.

    Some lash out, some bash, some are helpful, some don't care. Guess I proved my point.

    We need more negative posts like this as some sort of training as the Windows Phone receives so little negative press in the forums. When the trolls do eventually arrive in numbers we will now at least be prepared.

    that was exactly what he meant with this post, how many times today have you seen "complaints" "returning my phone" "this phone sucks" again "i found more 900 complaints" like if this was their dairy?

    oh also "I will return this phone, since im not getting apollo, the vergue said it" "we are beta testers" "if Microsoft doesnt say if we are getting apollo im going back to iphone"

    well you get the point.
    and this forum is getting trolled and spammed by these people, even people who dont even have Windows Phone but still talk bad about it. and some people already have even mentioned they are leaving because of that.
    this sarcastic post wasn't necessary but i understand his point.

    It's no different than the forums over at iMore every time a new iPhone comes out. Or Android central.... Or Crackberry.... Post like this are just as bad as the rants.

    Just go to iMore and look at the posts from 2007-2009 about everyone coming in and making one post about the iPhone they just got STILL doesn't do MMS that even their old dumb phone can do.

    They are equally bad and make the forums uninviting for everyone. I got what the OP was doing and know why. I've seen all the posts. But that doesn't change that it is not needed. Let the trolls troll and just ignore them. Post like this just feed them.

    I thought it was funny.

    People come to forums for help, but it's exhausting when they come in just to b!tch and complain about how their 10 year old phone did this and that out of the box. Everyone expects perfection when they paid $100 for a phone (which will be reimbursed by Nokia, effectively making the phone free). They also expect every bug to have been worked out the first day. News flash, there would never be any software updates if everything was perfect from the start. It takes people using it to discover what's wrong, and the initial beta tests help a ton but aren't akin to millions of users.

    Perfectly said! To the OP, you had me for a second, esp. when I saw who posted it. It's funny how everyone was so hyped for this phone but it didn't take long for the BS posts to start. It seems a lot of people were expecting this phone to be PERFECT, well, I'm pretty sure no device is perfect. The 900 was just released, it was bound to have bugs and whether people like it or not, that's how it goes. It's the same when a new car comes out and there are problems or better yet a recall is issued. People freak out and say they're trading it in, it's a piece of junk, blah blah.

    Maybe the mods should make a specific thread for *****es, gripes, complaints, etc. to prevent multiple threads about the same topic, it gets old, quick. It would be nice to come in here and actually learn something new about the phone, like a "hey, look what I discovered today" or "check out this trick", etc.

    As someone posted the other day, I can't say I've been on too many boards like this with this much negativity. It's as simple as this: if you're not happy with the phone, return it and get something that makes you happy, just quit posting stupid sh&t that no one cares to read.

    i thought it was funny as well, but just be mindful not all of us with the lumia 900 paid 100.00 there are quite a few of us that paid full retail 449.00 that might not be anything to you but its a lot to some. and even those that paid 100.00 that might be a lot of money lets not throw this in folks face about it being only 99.00 what you expect type attitude. Quality should be expected no matter what you paid for something. heck i have seen folks in burger king going nuts over paying 3.00 for something and it didn't taste like they thought so they took it back i don't recall not one person in the store saying you only paid 3.00 what do you expect. anyway it was funny of the guy to post his fake rant thread though.

    What is WRONG with some of y'all? *shakes my damn head*


    I got it the first time and feel it reflects a lot of initial first time posts from people who DON'T ask for help or questions about how to work things but just lash out. This was much needed, the stick in the butts weren't
