Yeah, I've seen em all. Doesn't really bother me. Microsoft is really drawing their last straws at this point. Well, they've finally made one accomplishment: they have a greater mobile OS market share than RIM! At an amazing 3%.

Does anyone remember the supposed new policy of paying for your new phone over 12 months? And the possibility that you would keep your unlimited data? Did that policy ever take affect and do you keep your unlimited data that way? Someone at work was asking about the S4 and they want to keep their unlimited data and I told them about the 12 month policy.

So, am I the only one to cry foul here? What if I pay outright? Do I get a discount on my bill.... NO .

So let me get this straight...
1 . I can get a subsidized phone and pay say.. $100/mo. (For easy addition)

2 . I can pay full price, out right and pay $100/mo

3 . I can pay "financed" and pay ... an extra $60/mo =$160/ mo

Seems to me, the people who pay outright are screwed. There is no real benefit to the people who fork out the cash in advance. We are actually paying the same as the subsidized people....

Shame on you Verizon!

Come on , we are not dumb!

Rant is over sorry....

I completely agree. Unfortunately, they have us, with unlimited, on a leash - to put it mildly.

I already have it planned when I go get my next phone to point this out and to say it loud enough so everyone hears. It will be pointless, I know. But at least it will be said.

There should be 2 categories of phone ownership.

#1 ignorant people that just want something cool

#2 phandroid junkies that understand we are getting ripped off!

I always say "don't take advantage of old people or children"

The phone world should absolutely be," those who are educated in phone plans and those who aren't. "

Hey friends, what do you all use for SMS backup when you flash new ROMs, etc? I don't want to lose my texts when switching to my new phone.

SMS Backup and Restore does it for me. Titanium has the option too. Menu -> Backup Data to xml -> Messages.

I completely forgot about that feature, thanks.

A few more questions which I would greatly appreciate assistance with:

1) If this will be my TiBu backup that gets moved to a new phone, should I pick "backup user apps + system data"?

2) What's the easiest guide for rooting on a Mac these days?

3) They sent me a new SIM card for my new phone as well, but do I need to use it? What would be the difference between using the new one and my current one?

Sup Razor,

If I was you I'd do this:

1) Backup user apps, call log (also an XML file) and Messages, which you've already done.

2) Since you are nandroiding, if I remember correctly, no need to backup system anything. And if your nandroid goes to heck for any reason, at least you can clean flash something and restore apps, Call log and Messages.

Sim card: Use the one from your previous device. If it goes belly up, you've got a backup.

Hope that helps.

Thanks a ton jmar. The reason that I was asking for #2 is because I'll have to root the new phone. Also, I don't think I'll be making a nandroid - I think I'd like to go back to JBsourcery. I miss the customizations!

Hmm, anyone know why the JBsourcery thread says "DO NOT use Titanium Backup to restore data for anything other than games"?

Taken by the guy at Champs that is traveling across country, ocean to ocean. Was in military and decided to travel across country with his friend who passed away and still decided to do it alone. Really nice guy. He only had some simple traveling food and wanted to go to Sheetz so I took him. Best of luck to him. If you are on Twitter...@McHrebin

This guy is accepting no rides from town to town. I would love to see support for this guy to spread and to be known.

Me, btw.

Morning!! Its was a good weekend and its not a bad Monday either. I got a job and had a bunch of my friends over for dinner. So far today I'm sitting at the dealership waiting to hear what's wrong with the car but free coffee and WiFi have made it an easy wait.

Happy birthday BB! If you have Redds Apple Ale in your area then mix it with some Fireball Whiskey. It is delicious!


Waiting on Verizon S4 bootloader news and then I'll decide if I'm sticking with the Nexus, going to the S4 or continue to wait and hope for a new Nexus on Verizon.

I still do exactly what my Guide says to do and I have never had a hiccup. Back up EVERYTHING. Restore apps, app data and VERY select system elements (call log, SMS/MMS, alarms).

Not sure why JBS suggest that there are problems with TiBU, but I've yet to encounter one.

I've got a couch from them that is about 6 years old, moved multiple times and is still doing great. I really like it.

DSB you dodge the crap today? This tornado thing is heartbreaking, especially a direct hit on the elementary school.

Yeah, we got hit yesterday. Only an EF-1 by the airport and lots of nasty hail and wind. My car is vaguely golf ball like now. I'm not sure what the topography is that causes big tornados to roll through Moore, OK but this is the 2nd EF-5 in the last 15 years and there have been several other smaller ones in between. We were watching live feeds at work, 2 elementary schools got direct hits but one, nobody was killed and no major injuries. The other appears to be much worse...

Well. Decision time..

For Captain also.

Dan Rosenberg Appears to Have Conquered Verizon’s Galaxy S4 Bootloader, Boots Custom Recovery – Droid Life

Also, and HTC developer says that he knows for a fact the they will release an HTC One without Sense by the end of the summer. Believe it, or not.

And this is just cool as heck.

Two miles wide. Two MILES wide. Over 50 killed. Utter devastation.

What a heartbreaking way to start the week

Glad you're okay, DSB.

Thanks Chief. We get some ridiculous weather here in the central US. The closest one to me that size was the 1991 Andover tornado and I don't wish that on anyone. Thoughts definitely going out to everyone in OKC.

Absolutely heartbreaking. Very reminiscent of the Tuscaloosa tornado and the one that struck just a couple of miles from where I work in 2011. I was involved in the cleanup in that one and it was very heartbreaking. Prayers go out to these folks.

I find it hard to even think about it. They had a relatively large warning, and did exactly what they were supposed to do. It was an area that has been hit multiple times in the recent past, so shelters were numerous, and up to date. And yet all that didn't matter. The movie Twister has a scene where an actor calls an F5 tornado as "The finger of God", and it seems accurate given the images. Nothing can protect against something like that.

I have had a close call, the worst outbreak in FL history was where I lived, remember those storms acutely, the most terrifying ones of my life. 41 people died that night.

Tornado Damage Charleston Square - YouTube

This is the apartment complex I lived at when I attended The University of Alabama. That tornado happened long after I left, but everytime there is a tornado like the one yesterday it always makes me think what if.

Anti, you're right. The most accurate description of an EF5 would be the finger of God. I've seen firsthand what it can do. Literally rips asphalt off of the road.

FCC proposing to allow more sex and profanity during kids

This is troubling. I got rid of satellite, but if this passes I'll take down my antenna too.

Isn't this pretty much common place overseas? I'm not saying it is right or wrong. I just think "racier" television is normal across the pond?

"Across the pond" here...
Not saying right or wrong either.
Profanity. Is that cursing?

A lot of stuff shown on our tv comes from the usa. Half from usa pay tv, half from public cable I guess. Banshee and Homeland are shown on public cable here (uncut/uncensored).

There is no regulation on contents, but it is common sense/self regulated. And we have rating for parental guidance, like cursing, violence, the thingy two people play, and a couple of advised minimum ages.

Our shows have ratings too but that would require parents to pay attention. (And let's face it - we all know at least one or two of those types of parents).

You are talking about public cable. This would be over the air broadcasts that would go to TVs with no parental locks available. Cable has to have some sort of box, at least it does over here, which would have parental controls. Paying attention is one thing and more parents should take initiative in that department. But allowing stuff like that to be broadcast over the air where a child can flip through the channels and happen upon it is not cool by me.

Edit: I think some people forget that people still use antennas/rabbit-ears to watch TV
