I have left the jailbreaking/unlocking community for the Samsung Galaxy Note...OMG WOW!
I'm now somewhat embarrassed to say that I was using an iphone 3g on Tmobile for the past 3 1/2 yrs. I absolutely loved my iphone but....jailbrake after jailbrake and unlock after unlock rendered my old iphone useless with each additional upgraded firmware. I simply grew tired of dealing with it all. I used to brag to everyone how I was using a jailbroken device that could do practically everything and "obtain" stuff for free. Yet everyone around me was speeding away in there 4G fast devices while I was at a snails pace using edge. Ugh..that was it for me.
After debating on whether to get an iphone 4 and do this whole process over again. I found out the city I live in is one of the very few that has 4G LTE (long term evolution) on AT&T. I went to the store to find out some more info and what phones they had.
This is when I was completely blown away by the huge Samsung Galaxy Note. It's 5.3inch AMOLED screen was simply amazing. I bought one and to my astonishment I found out that like the jailbroken community...the android community also has many dev teams working to make the device better. The process is called rooting. Similar to jailbraking/unlocking etc.
I'm now rocking a white Galaxy Note that's rooted, flashed with Saurom and overclocked to 1.8ghz! I went from edge speed to 4G LTE speeds to the tune of 27mb/s down and 9mb/s up!!!
Well goodbye modmyi community. I learned a lot here and it was quite the experience all these years. For me, it was simply time to move on to a bigger and better device.

I'm just gonna go ahead and say it: you're going to look like a monkey holding up a slab of large tree bark next to its face during calls. Don't forget it in your back pocket or you'll sit on it. lol

Lol thanks for sharing. If I didn't ditch my iPhone, then come back to it again, I would probably do the same. I really want a 4G phone too, but I think I'll hold out and wait for the new iPhone. I hope hope hope it'll have 4G for Verizon! Well anyway, you have fun! Take care!
