    Wow, did not sleep at all last night, well, perhaps 30 minutes because I am so used to going to bed at 2am and getting up at like 10 or 11 for work, but I needed to be in at 6am this morning. So I have been up for nearly 24 hours (again). So I get up this morning, take a shower, get some coffee in me and head into work.

    I see my manager there and he's like, hey, Allan, what are you doing here? I tell him I was suppose to be in at 6. he said he came in at 4am that I should have called him. Like I knew he was there. He said I could come back at like 10 or something and I told him I had not slept and if I was going to go home, I was not coming back. So, after a bit of talking, I ended up getting an extra day off, today, and will try to make it up this weekend instead of those stupid 4 hour shifts.

    Yeah! A spare day off! too bad I am so blasted tired and need a nap. The Irony. :rolleyes:

    What a self servicing post on my part. I apologize. (Not really) :D

    Thank you (in alphabetical order) Anti, Halon and Han!

    If you have LTE enabled it may be doing a scan for it before settling in on CDMA.

    Put your device to show Settings/About phone/Status and note what "Mobil network type" is displayed. Look at the signal strength too.
    Then let it time out and when you wake it see what it shows says then. Seeif it shows LTE at 1st and pops back to eHRPD:13

    Ouch. The only thing worse than getting up with no sleep, is getting up with no sleep when you didn't need to do it.

    I'm feeling rather irritable today so I changed my signature.

    Hey! I'm still bummed that Travel and Leisure didn't include DC in the top 25 cities for hipsters. I mean, KC, MO made it :thinking:

    I know most read Droid-Life, but did anyone catch the benchmark comparison between the One X and the Nexus? One X smoked us. Really is a beautiful device.
    Benchmarks: HTC One X vs. Galaxy Nexus – Droid Life
    I may run a few tests on my Prime to see how it compares since they have similar specs.

    But as soon as I tried to use a data app (speedtest.net) it kicked me back to 3G.

    So, after this, I'll have 3 more posts until I get to 2K. What should it be? Ideas? I'll be sure to make sure it's here!

    I asked the admins about that weeks ago. Its a bandwidth penny pincher. Your sig should appear in the 1st post or reply and sometimes at Random.

    I'm not good with that as a premium subscriber eh?

    Chief, Stigy is right, could also be the brick that plugs into the wall. Does she charge by any other means? (car charger, computer etc).

    I have never in my life used Tapatalk. It always pops up when I visit a forum of some kind, and I always send that little thing on its way.

    I hate Tapatalk. I hate it!!!
