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.

    • Did some more exploring tonight. Saw n77 on both my USM and Visible SIMs, but never for long enough to take a screenshot, let alone do a speedtest. VZW's coverage maps are *massively* overstated for n77, at least here. Had to go pretty far north to even get those glimpses. Finding T-Mobile n41 was miles easier.
    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
