He was talking about a clean flash, meaning he was somewhat reinstalling android completely instead of updating the old version, which would probably leave some dirt behind. I honestly don't know for sure whether CM's "easy way" will wipe your whole phone first or not, but I wouldn't worry about that if I were you. It's supposed to be made for people that don't worry about stuff like that.

It might only be in the US that they'd require something so asinine, but it's pretty clear that a lot of people think and say you're required to have a data plan to be able to activate a smartphone, PDA, or blackberry on a VZW plan, whether you buy it from them or not. There's a list of older smartphone models that apparently avoid this requirement, but outside that I haven't found anything to the contrary.

I took a quick look. I see no hints of physical reasons why it wouldn't work. Unless Verizon has infected the software so badly that it doesn't work unless you have data then it should work.

Get to testing already!

I have to get phone from said person who said I could have it first. I'll do that and see what I can do. If it doesn't work, I'm just gonna have to do something else until I've moved and settled in. I highly doubt I will be able to afford $50/month right away (I also have to pay off college loans and **** so it'd be over $100/month in misc bills) when I first move to Fargo and am looking for a job.

Maybe if I'm lucky I'll have access to other providers up there, but a good chunk of the great plains part of the US only has decent coverage from VZW and vaguely tolerable coverage from AT&T.

Even if it doesn't work I can guarantee you that it will work with a non-Verizon branded phone, because they have no Verizon software, which is the only feasible thing that could stop you from using the phone without a data plan. Set aside 60$ for 3 months and you've got enough for a good smartphone. Definitely stay away from that data plan if you're short on cash.

I have the money to buy a phone right now, my job isn't amazing, but it pays enough for that. I'm more worried about money in January after I've moved if I need to pay for a data plan than whether I can get a phone or not.

But I'm kind of taking over this thread with my rambling so I'll just stop talking about it until I mess around with this blackberry.

I don't get it, what are you trying to say?

Get it? Get it? Hihihihihih4h4h4h4

I finally got the update some days back. It took me some time to get accustomed to the new feel. Practically only feature I care about(was using ART already) is the flashlight shortcut. Keep it up Google!

Yeah, the flashlight shortcut is pretty nice, and so is the new quick-menu. The previous one was too fiddly.
But don't forget the animations. I think they're totally dope.

I also hope they make those battery and camera improvements they've been promising for so long happen soon. I'm tired of waiting.

Yowie, one of the many reasons not to get a 1+1.
This only further reinforces my thoughts that it's a riskier bet than other manufacturers.

"I also am Otherkin. Whenever autumn rolls around I can feel my kin-type slowly taking over my body. You must know, I identify as pumpkin. I can control it pretty good most of the time, but when September ends, I just cant hold it in anymore. Whenever Im outside I see my brothers and sisters being chopped into soup, coffee, donuts, cake, drinks, bread - ppl even cut human faces into their skin, making a mockery out of their noble appearance. When I see things like that I cant control my pumpkin urges anymore. My natural instincts kick in. I then sit down motionless, while getting bright orange." - Morgana L

I don't know about the animations, the previous standby animation I had (like an old TV turning off) I find more awesome than the current one (some fade with color fade). But the others are pretty slick indeed.
