You make a very good point... and I love your description of inept reps. :smileyhappy:

There is nothing "cut-throat" about saying the Droid is too complicated for some people.  There are many people who are technology challenged and can't operate something as complicated as the Droid.  That's just a simple fact.  The Droid is not for everyone.

The term 'cut-throat' generally means that you're being blunt, forward, and sometimes rye. Sorry if it came off the wrong way, but I agree with most that you said anywho.

I would agree with Jim on this. Too many people have sprung for a smart phone that never even took the time to understand their computers. This is like trying to drive a 1000 hp dragster without ever even learning to drive a car. Many of these people are just plain lazy and it really has nothing to do with their ability to understand they just dont care to take a few minutes and research themselves. You can pick them out easily here on the forums. They tend to be the people who post a thread asking for help or info on a subject already discussed many times. 

 

I was over at some Andorid forum earlier and I was kind of thinking the same thing but with those people it was that most genuinely were trying to understand. The problem was they read up on just enough to get themselves in trouble. What made matters worse was that many of these same people were trying to help other lazy users and filling their heads with a bunch of nonsense and misinformation. 

 

One of the most basic things about Android phones is the many task killer apps. How could anyone with a computer not understand the concepts of these apps. Its is very similar to the PC. The more stuff you have running the more power and resources your going to use. Pretty basic stuff.

 

These smartphones have more in common with the desktop pc than they do cell phones. Its just a mini computer in your pocket. If you dont understand the PC then smartphone users have alot of catching up to do.

"task killer apps" for droid..That's a touchy subject. Many WinMo users will not make the transition from constantly checking resources to just using your device.

This whole discussion kind of reminds me of a youtube comedy sketch about "Medieval Tech Support" that I saw a few months ago:

You can even watch it on your android, if you are not to technologically challenged :smileywink:

While I do agree most reps only want the sale, there are some out there who are extremely knowledgeable. I own a Droid. It took me literally 2 hours to learn every last detail about it. I can sell it in two minutes.

 

What I don't understand is why everyone wants an Android device and why everyone is willing to dish out $30 for it, yet they don't understand how it works and only want it because of the "cool Droid Does commercials". Why don't they just go for an EnV3 and use the $10 package and KNOW how to use the phone? It sure would save me time...
