    Well i tend to trust more pdadb th an GSM arena ...oh its phone arena... Even worse xD

    Oh well gorilla glass or not its all the same in the end, GG ils only a commercial argument to raise the price... Ofc they are more resistant but its nowhere near what they claim it is.

    My One X was GG and did break on a nothing, while my UMI X1 didnt (ok GG is "scratch resistant" indeed but people tend to think its "unbreakable" xD)

    i prefer Antutu over Quadrant, still its a nice improvement over a stock One X ... duh i miss my One X :roll:

    do yourself a favor : root the phone (i suspect its allready done) instal Lucky Patcher(i know i know ..."semi piracy tools") and remove google ads from your apps xD (i use LP only for G Ads removing on some apps, even when it says 28% chance my app runs without google ads ... very practical for Manga reader/searcher)

    well he took a hit on the side, i didnt had time to do myself the reparation (or fund) so i sold it to get a Umi X1 and a MP700 then resold the MP700 (Allwinner A13 is too slow for me >.< ) and got a Nexus 7

    the Umi is 3time lower on antutu score than the One X but still do all i need from a smartphone and the Nexus 7 is my new "tinker-toy" perf/price ratio is just awesome (even for a tegra3)

    LP link (the version will autoupdate once launched) clean (some version of LP are mallware or trojan) if its not allowed to link to that apk let me know (still its not only for app cracking but rather a multitools wisely used its usefull for all poweruser)

    I have a question...can a locked USA T-Mobile 4g phone use a European T-Mobile SIM? Or is an unlock required?

    My brother is going to Norway, and I'm gonna give him my old phone. I can get it unlocked easily, but is it necessary?

    maybe you should ask thsat question to your operator? 1 do it need to be unlocked 2 will it work under LTE/4G in norway.

    it should be easier (or just unlock it ... its not necessary its obligatory no smartphone shall be locked!!! :laugh: :roll: :laugh: )

    Just got my HTC One. These things are stupidly difficult to get on my network. They're out of stock everywhere but I managed to get this one. Apparently it was put away for someone but they didn't show up so fuck them there's a massive waiting list and I need it lol.

    The screen on my Galaxy S2 has been smashed since February and as of last week I've been unable to hear calls on either the earpiece or loudspeaker so it's nice to be able to make calls.

    It's early days yet but no phone has checked this many boxes since my Nokia N95 8GB back in 2009 and that's including the Galaxy S2. The speakers are fantastic, it's probably the most overlooked feature on a phone and very few phones do them right. The screen is nice and bright, the build is solid and the camera works a treat. I would have preferred at least 5MP resolution but it's a small tradeoff for the better camera, let's face it we'd all love 13MP but in real world situations the HTC One shines, how many of us are actually in photo studio conditions? The 720p60 sample I saw on the net looked like upscaled VGA but it looked ok when I recorded one on my phone, maybe the new update fixed that? I'll have to see on my PC lol. The internal camera is pretty wide too which is appreciated.

    Yeah, wanted a One, but Verizon didn't offer, and there's now way I'm paying out of network to get one: not made of cash heheh.

    So, quick question. I want an app that lets me block texts from about 3 different numbers. I've already got their calls sent straight to voice mail, but I'm considering an option that hangs up on them without voice mail, as long as it doesn't say something like "The recipient has hung up on you..." These are clients that have managed to grab my personal number, and I don't answer their calls. Yesterday one of them sent me a text when I was sitting in an office across the hall. It notified me, and I barely managed to get by quickly enough without them noticing it arrived when they asked if I got it. I don't want ANY notification I received it. No sound, no vibrate, just mark it read and move on. Any one have any experience with any of the options on the market?

    This problem asks for a social solution. It's actually very professional if you simply tell those clients they will not receive any assistance when they use your personal number.

    Thx :). What kind of notification do you (and they) get when someone on the block list sends you a txt?

    that feature is called a blacklist, many apps/custom roms offer that.

    the blacklist feature i used to use gave me a silent notification that they'd tried to call/message, and they were hidden away in there (and not the regular call log/messaging app).


    the other party got nothing, but i guess thats an option for some configs.

    I just got a Kyocera Event from Virgin Mobile as a halfway phone till I can afford to get saved up for an unlocked ATT phone to put on straight talk.

    Not too bad for a 60 dollar phone. It has Android ICS 4.0.4 instead of 2.3 like my ZTE N860 does.

    The ZTE's gotta go in for an RMA since the mic quit working (others have the same issue as well and factory/ROM resets do not fix it) so I'll send it back, then I'll root/ROM it with a 4.x ROM.

    Stock Android (I'm on 4.0.3) offers a blacklist option, no texts, no outgoing notifications, if they do call it does show up in the call log, but no voicemail or anything like that. Plus no space on your phone taken up. I don't know about earlier versions of Android though.

    Just go to the call log, click on the offending number, click on the "Options" button of your phone has one and then "Add to Reject List"

    Hey, I'm having a little bit of a problem. Rooted my kindle fire and installed TWRP recovery, made backups. Then tried to install a CM10 but the flash keeps failing. Is there a specific directory the .zip should be placed on the kindle? Or could it be a bad file?

    Also, in case anyone knows any way to fix it my 32gb micro SD seems to have crashed. I plugged it into my computer and it says format disk, I've tried it in several computers my phone and tablet, all say the same thing. Is there any way to save it? All my HD battlestar gallactica is on it lol

    you could try a quick format and then a hard drive recovery tool (i think recuva gets mentioned a lot, theres heaps)


    the flash itself might be dead - many dont last long.

    I hate how you take an SD card from an Android 4.x device and stick it in a 2.3.x device and it says it's damaged.... grrr... so I gotta reformat and then I gotta put the data back on... Lucky I did a full backup in case I ran into this...

    Thanks, that worked great. Got all my music off. It didn't recognize the videos though; oh well.

    I'm kindof new to flashing roms and everything, what do you mean the flash could be bad?
