I would just like to register my lofty First-World disapproval with AT&T mobile and their profoundly shitty HTC Vivid. My Better Half talked me into leaving the iphone for this piece of shit, and not seven months into it I just want to chuck it into a lake. Battery life is awful - it's plugged into the wall by lunchtime, when I don't have a spare battery on hand. Data transfers are fast one moment, stopped dead the next. I don't even do much with the stupid ass thing other than email, chat, pictures (which are frequently blurry), and facebook. The music interface is awful and when you crank it up, it distorts terribly. Texting is a bitch, and it picks the wrong misspellings over the correct words. I mean, I used an iphone for years and was proficient but this stupid piece of shit makes me sound like a moron, and litters periods all over the place. The effect is not unlike, say, Vaclava Krishna, after huffing, solvents for, a few, weeks.
