I guess I was a bit hostile and agressive but it is caused by majority of people just want it handled for them and not think or do for themselves beyond the scope of there everyday lives. I have noticed that most of the people in america where I was born and raised and fat, dumb, and lazy. It shows in everything around us today in our enviroment. It is the very fact the mentality of most people that use the devices we are talking about here. People always want it done for them than to take the few minutes of time to do it themselves. I guess that is a good thing for me since it promises good job security in the IT field.
But my point being on this whole thing is what makes this a difficult upgrade? Is it the fact that you have to read some directions to do it? You have to actually think to do it? It means you have to take some time out of an unmanged schedule to do it? You are afraid of technology and you just want blinders for it?
But seriouosly what makes this such a hard thing to do? I would really want to know what the honest no excuse issue is?
i dont think anyone ever said it was hard or difficult. to answer your question, it is more time consuming than it should be. i have a pc at work, however, i would never hook this phone to my work pc (govt property). on the average day, i spend 6 hours at home. i dont want to spend an hour downloading whatever to the pc, then the download for the phone, then the download to the phone. i do not have a home phone, so the update prevented me from using my phone when i needed to use it. if that had been your initial inquiry, then that was all needed to say...
the question was "is there anyone else that hates self updating"? the man asked a question, and i co-signed. if i say "who else hates rush-hour traffic?" that doesnt mean i find it hard or difficult...
for those that are in the IT field, I am certain it is frustrating dealing with people that are not as savvy as yourself. However, it is not necessary to take it out on others and read more into what they are saying then what is actually said. there is also no need to attack people in your response.
I dont expect you to walk into the door of my job and understand industry lingo, jargon and acronyms. im not going to say it needs to be "dumbed down", but as theatreguy said, this phone was marketed as one for the ordinary user. if thats who the tartget is, it should require a minimal amount of maintenance...with all that being said, I need to figure out how to undo the update. between not being able to hear out the earpiece, to this stupid hourglass, this phone is cause me even new aggravation.
