    Have you ever walked into a store for example verizon and shortly after walking in you realized you know more than the people working there do ? just thought I would ask and see if this happens to any one else

    This is really funny. I did exactly the same thing. I walked into the Sprint Store and ended up showing them how the Galaxy Tab was supposed to be used.

    They were appreciative and sad. They thought they had a ready customer, but I apologized and said I just wanted to do a couple of performance tests. They said there had been a lot of interest.

    Haha i knew it had to be something that happens to other people here and not just me. But at least now they have some more sale points for it and can show people how to use it.

    It can happen sometimes. People may not really like their jobs.

    That's a good point I never thought about that. I just expect people that are suppose to help others know stuff. But you make a very valid point

    haha, everyone tells me i should work at Verizon or a store like that because i know alot, but then i have to remind them i only know alot about Android. I actually was just in a Verizon store the other day and heard someone talking to a Verizon rep about maybe returning their Xoom and getting and Iphone, well i could let that happen so i started talking to them about what i know and answering some of the guys questions. His biggest concern was that his Xoom couldnt video chat with Ipads, or Iphones. So i go over to the display Xoom and video called my buddy who has a Iphone. Every buddy in the store was amazed and after that the Verizon rep asked me if i wanted a job there. Haha i think she was joking but still funny.

    I love when people ask me if my superpad is a phone. I tell them that it is AND I proceed to text them using textfree. You should see their faces.

    Similar story, I went into ATT a year or so before my health issues and my gf bought an Iphone. I proceded to explain how I dislike the phone and its owner and how much the iphone "tells its owner what to do and how to do it." I had every rep in the store angry at me but I got offered a job at the end too lol.
