    Is the forum dying? Have the users found other sites more to their liking or with better information? I read Howard Forums and found the site buzzes with discussions.

    Haven't been to Howard Forums in years, so I'll take your word for it. I don't know why such a drastic difference. My first guess would have been that the provider's customer forums have improved enough in the last decade to draw a lot of traffic away from here, but if HF is abuzz that puts a crimp on this theory. How much traffic do you figure comes from trolling there? I remember WA had done a pretty good job on putting a lid on trolling. Perhaps (sadly) the human nature needs that to keep going?

    Howard Forums probably gets 100+ posts per day. A lot of chaff but some interesting discussions. I use Tapatalk to wade thru it.

    Good question rjniles.

    I haven’t been through HoFo for eons. I never felt comfortable there but yes there is a lot of activity there.

    I visit Macrumors and that has lots of activity there as well, so much so that I just click on “Mark forums read”, if there are more than 3 days of unread threads.

    This is my favorite and yes the lack of activity is too depressing.

    It may be from a few reasons, lack of new phone features that wow people, Coverage by the main carriers including T-Mobile improving dramatically over the years, and people not knowing about other forums like this & HoFo vs as dmapr stated improvements in carrier and manufacture forums to help customers, and both recommend using them to help with issues.
