I did end up going with phpbb3 but a lot of review sites says that you have to be a master coder or something along those lines to get phpbb3 to do what you want it to do. I also asked the question because the buttons on here are just dated so I didn't know if it was still being supported. the Quote Code List and smilies, they just do not fit. I think the UI when posting should be updated to something a little more current looking.
then you obviously were reading reviews by people that did not know what they were talking about.
I saw no offense in your question. It was just based on false assumptions.

what would you suggest? "current looking" is certainly in the eye of the beholder.
they are just buttons, some of which are css , some of which are images etc.
there are many many styles available and if you don't like any of them you always have to option to create one yourself or hire someone to do it.
If you are expecting phpbb to look like one of your phone apps then keep in mind that the reason phone apps look the way they do is because they have to be restricted to working on devices that are much smaller and less capable than what a web based bulletin board software is designed for.
oh, and welcome to phpbb. I am sure you will find everything you need here to help you get your board just the way you want it.
