Re: Important

I finally came to the realization that I destroy any and every case in a few months time. So I run caseless now. Eff it. Life proof and otter box fail me in no time at all.

Re: Important

I don't use a case at all. I have shattered the screen a couple times but that's why I pay for insurance. I hate the weight and looks of a big bulky case. I hate the way screen protectors look and feel. I just like the phone the way it came.

I'll be in the market for a new phone in a couple months but I may not even do it. Right now my phone is mint and I'm grandfathered in the old school unlimited plan from 10yr ago. I just looked at my bill a few days ago and I think I used 49gigs. That'll be a hefty price if I have to sign a new plan.

Re: Important

The best screen protectors are the glass ones. You can't tell they are on the phone.

Re: Important

my otterbox cracked my screen on my current phone. i won't be making that mistake again.

i've been a verizon customer for 16 years and have probably averaged about 1.5 destroyed phones per year. Used to be higher, but every since i started carrying a smart phone i'm a lot more careful. i have the droid maxx now. phone has been just fine other than the glass being fragile. i was a lot harder on my last smartphone (LG) but the glass was a lot thicker.

Re: Important

I just figured out I need another phone so I can call and locate my phone when the wife's not around with her phone...

As long as I don't lose it, plan to keep my S5 for a long time. Only upgraded from the S3 for the better camera, would need one with a seriously better camera, with expandable memory, and removable battery, for me to consider upgrading again.

You've probably worn the mount out.

Suprisingly both the bushing and thr mount were still in good shape. The play was due to the mount not clamping down on the bushing. Its an IRO type setup but uses a 7/16th bolt

my track bar mount have a habit of working itself loose even with lock tight so I got some HDOR front stiffies and welded the mount to the stiffies.
