    ...Not a lot different with google using activations rather than using actual sales numbers. The same phone could be activated as many times as it either changes hands or ROMS.
    Google activations are only counted once per device ID. So it doesn't matter if you flash a rom or give it away. Fact check before you say things as people might actually believe you without doing research on their own.

    EDIT:
    To further back my point, this is what Andy Rubin said in 2011:
    "For those wondering, we count each device only once (i.e., we don't count re-sold devices), and "activations" means you go into a store, buy a device [and] put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service."

    Source? No where have I read that its a lie. A quick google and bing (just to humor you) search shows many sources explaining how Google counts it's activations. I wouldn't see a reason for The Verge, Engadget, Techcrunch, Android Central, etc to just blatantly spread a lie. So put up or shut up. Your irrational hatred of Google irritates me in the same way that somebody asking me why in the world I use a WP does. How do you feel about Nokia "lying" about 1 million pre-orders?

    No need to describe or discuss your criminal behavior in civilian clothes.lol. You ain't the only one to tour or agree with the order but we do what we do. That's life on the sand and of no consequence here, real talk. But let it drop here because this ain't what we do.

    You're right. I immediately regretted putting that. Maybe you aren't so bad.
