    Default Retiring My LG Optimus Slider

    There's little to no dev support, and that's what I care about. I went back to my OV today and I won't come back until there's some more dev support for this phone.

    To be honest there was no point in making this thread. It's like making a thread saying you just baked muffins and they are delicious. But I wholeheartedly agree about wanting to retire. The Slider has been dead since day one in terms of dev support. Here I was hoping that LeslieAnn and other Optimus V devs would either port or develop newly created ROMs for the Slider but that's not happening in the Sliders lifetime by the looks of it.

    The only thing stopping me from going back to the V is the keyboard. Otherwise the Slider would be getting sold on eBay. I understand where you're coming from.

    Wish I could go to the Triumph or the OV. But the wife would blow up if she knew I sold my anniversary present from her

    Yikes . Try "accidentally" breaking it. Like snapping the top part off the bottom part and say you dropped it while you had the keyboard out. Viola, time to get a new phone.

    Plan = ruined.

    How about...say you tried installing a ROM on your phone and it bricked it, and it isn't covered under insurance since you broke the ToS/voided your warranty by doing so. But thing is, you'd really need to brick your phone. Or just remove the battery and show her it won't power on.

    I haven't retired my Slider yet because it's what I use daily, while I continue to flash roms and play around with my Optimus V. It's only a matter of time, if nothing new comes along, if no support is available, I may retire to a Sidekick 4G that was just given to me. On the bright side I won't be giving up a keyboard

    I'm deciding to go back to the Slider because my fingers are starting to hurt from typing on an on screen keyboard. Oh decisions...

    I was making a version of YourMom on the slider since I liked it so much on my sisters Optimus S.

    Just found out that HTC EVO 3-D is coming to Virgin Mobile in the summer.. Not a big fan of HTC phones, but this one is a definite plus compared to the rest of the phones we have for Virgin.. Was going to sell my phone and get the crappy Triumph, but now at least I have something good to look forward too...

    But of course they switch out the nice Nvidia chipset AND the Dual 1.5GHz. For a crappy chipset and a single core 1GHz

    There not going to switch the chips in them.. The one v is 1GHz the 3-d is a 1.2 GHz.. They are releasing a LG phone too but really it has the same specs as the slider. It says 800 Mhz but its probably like the slider, a 600 Mhz overclocked cpu..
