I've finally gotten over my disillusionment with Dell.com and that whole company from Michael Dell down to my 3rd Dell Streak 5. NO support all these years, I've been winging it and didn't realize how much up todate technology I was missing out on until I got my Samsung Galaxy Note 2! the PERFECT successor and doing 1000% much better than how Dell screwed things up.


My trusty ole streak has bit its last byte and ditto'd its last data.. Its resting in pieces in another 'unnamed' forum in Cell Phone SIMetery..... Rest on my friend.. but now , I don't mis you a bit.
