Yet another reason that the jesusphone sucks.

This shouldnt bother any of the 18 year old abercrombie-t-shirt wearing bleach blondes I see using an iphone, they wouldnt know about it anyway.

Glad I got a Pantech Duo. Love this phone. Highly recommend it.

It ok to be jealous.

and for the record Putting any Important Info on Anything is Risky.

But iphone is Alot safer then a M$ Windows, so suck on that i care.

i have one i LUV IT! and Apple will fix it.... Unlike M$ Flaws.
