Canadians REPRESENT!

Posted Dec 13, 2012 at 11:22 am in Threads > Opinions

Just curious as to how many Canadians are on androidandme. Who are you, where’re you from, and what devices of the ‘droid persuasion do you have?

- Samsumg Galaxy player 5.0 (2.3.5)
- Acer A700 (4.1.1)
- Samsumg Galaxy Note (the wife’s, 4.1.1)

Mark, from Calgary!

    I’ll jump into this fray, just to help you get some A&M points. :)

    - Galaxy S i9000 (Bell version), wife’s, running CM7.1
    - Galaxy S i9000 (Bell version), mine, running CM10
    - Archos 10.1 Tablet (ugh)

    … waiting on the SGS 4 to upgrade the first two.

      3-year contracts are the worst, how’re the galaxies holding up?

      • jaxidian

        OUCH! THREE year contracts?! No way I’d sign one of those! I likes me my full-price phones with cheap plans for service!

        • Dr.Carpy

          I save and buy my device outright, it’s cheaper than the 3 year contract.

        • MC_Android

          I would agree with you but I’m on my 5th year with Bell (on my second 3-year plan) and honestly, I don’t sign it for the subsidized phone. I do it because of my rentention plan that I get with it…

          My girlfriend is on Wind but the reception and call quality is actually horrible. On both sides, we constantly hear cracking and “robotic” static noises and even distorted human conversation (call interference? Is that even possible?)

    • MC_Android

      Sure, update your own phone and leave her on gingerbread; she won’t know the difference right? :P

    Thanks man.Might not be as many Canadians here as I’d thought..!

    • Dr.Carpy

      Hey! Sorry my man! I never saw this until today!

      - Motorola RAZR HD XT925 4.04 ICS
      - Samsung Galaxy Note II 4.1 Jelly Bean
      - Sony Tablet S 4.03a ICS just got it today! Yay Walkman!

      My name is Gary, I’m from …Edmonton! So don’t hold that against me Mark! ;)

      +1 all my Canadians! Looking forward to reading your comments in the future!

      • impromark

        +1 by Canucks, for Canucks!

        I grew up in Sherwood Park, then moved to Calgary for the work. Hope you guys don’t hold that against *me*!

        Oilers 4-eva, yo!


      • MC_Android

        Edmontonian here as well!

        -Galaxy S2 ICS 4.0.3 (Manufacturer ROM…planning to root it after final exams are over)

        Recently sold my Nexus 7 and Transformer Prime.

  • orangestrat

    I’m Alan from Edmonton.
    Rocking a galaxy nexus on Bell and a nexus 7!

  • Bpear96

    Im from canada, born and raised. Living in the US now though.. Hope to move back one day.

  • Mix

    I live in BC!

    I bought my wife an Acer Iconia 7″ and even though it’s Acer it is pretty slick.

    The fantastic news is that my 3.5 year old Blackberry bold is getting replaced on Dec 20 as my 16gb Nexus 4 shipped last night!!!

  • GuyWithDogs

    Canadian by birth but living in the USA for the past ten years, so I’m out of touch with the Canadian telecomm scene.

    • MC_Android

      Traitor! :P

  • jaysond

    I got kicked out of Canada before I ever got in thanks customs and no I’m not a drug smuggler ,even after the 4 hours of false interrogations we were not permitted into Canada because we had less than 500$ in our pockets so worth the 16 hours of driving back and forth!!!!!!!!,

  • MC_Android

    It seems like most of us are from Edmonton…or rather, Alberta to be more correct. What happened to the other provinces?
