Is that thing pink?

 

lol no its not, just the way the light and flash from the camera reflected.

 

and all is well again! talked one of my family members into letting me use their upgrade, then sprint also gave me $51 for the broken one, so between the upgrade and buyback it cost me as much as it would have if i did have insurance! and yes my new one does have insurance now :)

 

one question though, the sales person asked me if i wanted a case, like an otterbox, i asked him if he thought that would have prevented the phone bending like that.... he said yes.... i have a hard time believing that.... anyone have experience with cases? would it really have protected it like he claimed? and if so any recommendations?

I have the Otterbox..not sure what series. You put in the little plastic thing then the rubber part goes over that. I've dropped the phone a couple of times and its never missed beat.

 

On another note, I took it out to clean the dust out of the case and a text came through. I picked it up to text and I don't see how people use this phone without dropping it or touching on the side of the screens. Just felt awkward. I love it in the case, it gives me something to grab on to hold without worries of breaking it. Kinda my same principle on the meth'd out looking skinny chicks where you can count their ribs..don't like em!

Yeah, I like a big fat case on my phone too. They make them awfully dainty. I wish someone would make a phone that was like the old Nextel phones and stuff a huge battery in there. I wouldn't care if my phone looked like a brick if I could get a week of battery life out of it. I'd probably still be able to put it in my pocket.

I have used Otterbox on past phones and my wife's iPhone is in an Otterbox. They make some of the better cases on the market in my opinion. The Defender series is a little more bulky than the Commuter series and usually comes with a belt clip. Commuter series has a silicone type inner case with a hard plastic outer, exo-skeleton type case. If you don't like the more bulky case look, I would go with a Commuter series. I might not have completely protected against what happened to you but it would have certainly taken more force to bend it than it did without the case. That might have been enough to save the phone.

I use the Seidio Convert http://www.seidio.com/convert/. It has a slim case that you can cover with a silicone and exoskeleton case. I also have a belt clip that clips onto the exoskeleton. It is pretty easy to switch from the normal case to ultimate protection. I had the Otterbox and feel it gives even more protection, but they are both really good.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.
