I know the feeling, I was rocking and extended battery until I had apparently ruined it due to overheating. I'll be getting another one soon though.

Yeah, so what do you think? Worth it to sell the note and go back to the gnex?

If you miss the stock look/feel, have you considered unlocking it and running a custom AOSP rom like CM10.1? I imagine that must look pretty good on that nice screen.

Ultimately, it comes down to what you value more. The extended battery really makes this device a lot better if you can deal the extra thickness it adds. To me, it's worth it. If you do sell your Note2, then that would go a long way towards getting that Xphone.

The problem is that like previously, the LTE radio is a patch file that cannot be flashed through fastboot. If you try to dump the radio partition, it dumps as a whole and not as two separate radios. Only way I see as of now is to flash back to stock, take the ota for the radios, then flash back to a custom rom.

I can't say that these new radios are really super fantastic but I do get 3 bars in my house. I know bars mean little but still.

UGH Janie and I found a roach in the apartment last night, totally ruined my night and my day so far today.

Super & landlord will both be getting phone calls today because I want an exterminator in here ASAP. I need to vacuum the place real well and now start doing research about how to truly deal with these because I know they are a huge pain and also carry diseases and I don't want me, Janie or the cats getting sick. ARGHH.

Has anyone dealt with this before?

I cannot wait until my lease is up - I need to leave this apartment. Its been nothing but bad luck since we moved into it.

It's going to happen from time to time I'm afraid. Growing up in FL, it was just a fact of life that they get in the house somehow. Those ones fly too. Don't be too hard on the super unless you find a lot of them. Oh, and check your pantry... Specifically non-sealed containers.

Ah, roaches in the apartment. Do I have some fun stories for you.
We've had some in ours, and I know it sucks. Definitely call the landlord.
Sadly, we've had some rodent issues in our restaurant since it's a super old building with a lot of openings which have all been closed. The other two, being brand new buildings have virtually none. I had a really bad mouse problem in my apartment in Kansas. I went through traps like crazy.
For roaches, the best thing is keep the place clean (same with mice). Have them lay glue traps for roaches to see where they're coming from. If you can avoid having the place sprayed that's great, but it may be the only option.

Well my biggest problem with the super was when we had a centipede problem, his solution was to leave a can of Raid on my doorstep and say his job was done. I made sure to call the landlord directly and have that fixed, but I feel he doesn't really care about doing anything except for people he is buddy-buddy with.

I am hoping that this one wandered in from outside somehow and his buddies didn't follow him in. I will make sure an exterminator gets called to at least see our options, but I will be doing a major cleaning tonight to make sure I don't see anything else.

But this apartment just has been bad news bears so we are going to look into buying a starter home in July when the lease is up. I just hate relying on other people to get things done - one of my biggest pet peeves. Oh well, gonna be a LONG day either way.

I've never had a roach issue, and only 1 mouse in 3 years (was a field mouse not even a house mouse). But the centipede problem is a pain that we go through as well. And of course my GF is terrified of them

That's the problem with us. I go to bed early and she stays up late enjoying the fun of seeing the creepy crawlies that come out at night.

It was funny one time finding a centipede on the wall, and our chinchilla tried to chase it on it's saucer wheel. I really wish I could have gotten a video of that before I eliminated it.

Yeah, I've heard some shrieks and "Kill it!" before. Having plenty of "experience" doing it in the past and at work, it really doesn't bother me.

It's funny, because when we had the one mouse last year, my GF was all like, "Kill it, get rid of it" Then when the trap finally got the pest, the trap crushed it's skull and it bled all over the kitchen floor. When she saw that, she cried. So naturally I'm a jerk and said "Well, did you want it alive or dead? Pick one"

Indeed, but I do find it funny how all the US GS3's are getting treated like Second class phone users by not getting the premium suite with their 4.1.2 update like the international version did. Makes me a little wary going forward.

I'm just wary with upgrading to another device on Verizon. My phone works just fine now. My wife pretty much is attached to her Bionic but hates the camera. While I'd love to jump on something now and sign ANOTHER contract with Verizon, I think we'll strongly weigh the decision when the time comes.

I know the feeling. Where I grew up, Verizon use to be the only game in town. AT&T was unreliable and Sprint & T-Mobile didn't have any coverage. That has since changed so I no longer feel it's justified to pay Verizon prices. I'll get an unlocked GSM phone, use T-Mobile as my daily carrier. If I need better service, an AT&T MVNO is only a sim card away.

I got the first cell phone of my entire family in 2000 and Verizon really was the only game in town. Was 18 at the time and promised to pay all the bills but needed a cosign from my parents.
Have never used another carrier so am not sure about how well they run in the area. Have only head some passing comments about T-Mo, AT&T and Sprint. The latter, I have no interest in. Really want to go GSM.

Yeah, being naive to the differences between CDMA and GSM when I first got my own contract really has come back to bite me. Well, coming to AF has really woken me up. I really want to pull the trigger now, but having to pay $700 in ETF's and then buy new Nexus 4's really is quite an expensive upfront cost. Though I've already calculated that it would only take 4 months to break even.

Hope he's doing well.
Anyone have a recommendation on cheap computer speakers?
We just use ours to watch Netflix in bed, that's pretty much it.
Our terrible ones we have no have died so looking to pick up some at BB today.
These look to be fine and the price is good:
Logitech - Z313 2.1-Channel Speaker System (3-Piece) - Black/Silver - 980-000382

Just got here. Good morning all.

Couple things:

In under 12hrs I have noticed high battery drain on the new radios whilst on 4G. Oh, wait, it's always been that way

Killed a mouse once. Pretty sure we brought it home from visiting family out in the boondocks of Northern California. When I killed it, my Wife (GF at the time) called me a bastard and cried. Mind you, she told me to kill it and she said so loudly. I may never understand her

Sweet, I'll probably be on it this afternoon.
Have a problem with my Chromebook. Darn thing keeps prompting me to "update" every couple weeks.
