Rip OFF!!

I was at the store about 2 months ago asking about the iPhone nano, but the agent wouldn't sell me one and he told me that the Quickfire was actually smaller than the iPhone3g but he didn't have any iPhone3g's in the store to compare between.

guess you shouldn't have been a cheapskate and brought a $6 charger. too bad you're probably lying but i wish i could ask if it was worth the loss of your legs Smile.

big surprise

seriously its about time that the phone get pulled its one of the worst phones ever its a shame though since it showed so much promise. would have been an awesome sidekick kill if it didn't suck so much.
true that.

everytime someone came in wanting one i tried my best to get them with another device, now i have great reasoning to!

any idea why? besides the overall slow performance?
