Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

Would be cool to find a BMW roundel sticker to cover the Cobra emblem though, lol.
That's disgusting lol

Was the split on the bottom (speaker size)? I haven't opened it up, but having worked on previous iPhones it very well could be related. They probably won't make the connection and will replace it.

It was basically just the middle of the phone right hand side. Really minimal it took me a while to notice

My 5 showed up on the 7th, though it wasn't suppose to ship until the 16th. Very happy with the purchase, despite the azzhatz at Verizon taking away my unlimited data. Right now I am rocking this eBay case:

Nice dig.
I want to listen to radio. My 10 year old "dumb" SonyEricson phone came with FM/AM radio. I think that was an actual hardware radio tuner chip inside, so I could listen to live radio, just like in my car. But I'll settle for internet streaming radio. Can't believe a "smart" phone can't do that.
Any recommendations?

iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, I could go on and on...

iHeartRadio is a lot of true radio stations.

And on the contrary I think including an AM/FM radio chip would be a waste of space and resources in newer phones. The alternatives are great.

well, a true chip would give you true and free radio listening.
while some stations stream live, most do not.
For example, I just downloaded NPR app. There's only 2 Car Talk shows in the list and both are old. And it will cost me a chunk of my (not unlimited) data plan.

After having the Desmay case on for a couple days, I am a big fan, protects against scratches and is extremely thin, like not having a case on at all.

You guys gotta watch out for those plastic "shell" cases with no shock absorption. They offer ZERO protection for drops. My GF had one on and just shattered her screen yesterday from a minor drop.

Basically it's all about the corners and whether or not it has a screen lip. If the case does have a lip, the phone is much less likely to shatter.

I have an otter box for more high risk situations, ie: going out drinking.
