I recently got a 4S so I am playing with that, however ice cream sandwich is now available for my android phone (one of them) and has been for sometime so there are a bunch of good 3rd party roms available. So tomorrow I'll probably switch back to using the SGS2 for a while. I'll try and keep that and the 4S for as long as possible, or until the true successor to the Galaxy S2 comes out... S3???

      Oh and a question. How do I suppress the "Software Update" icon, withoutupdating? I have 5.0 and plan on keeping it that way. As of now, there is a "1" next to my settings all the time and I want rid of it. Certainly there has to be something in cydia by now...

      Can't say that I have. Then again I use Articles for all my wiki searching.

      Phone was starting to get bogged down and just overall run a bit slow. Performed a factory restore last night and it's nice and crisp again. Gotta love having Dropbox and iCloud now, makes things so much easier than before. Should hold me over until the 5

      Anybody know the best place to get replacement glass/LCD/digitizer assembly for my Verizon iPhone 4? Phone fell out of my pocket today and the screen shattered.

      When does everyone think the 5 is coming out? June or September? I'm hoping for June as I don't think I can take this Samsung Galaxy S any longer.

      There are probably people who advertise that service on your local Craigslist. If you want to do it yourself, try iFixit. There are certainly cheaper parts on Ebay, but it's more a gamble on quality.

      Replacing the digitizer looks like a PITA, so I'd want someone who does it frequently.

      Almost certainly September. We'd have more leaks if it were June, as the supply chain would have to be in high gear by now.

      I saw a few people suggest ebay, which I am a little hesitant to do. From what I understand, if I buy the who front piece with the digitizer and LCD attached to the glass it won't be too hard. I'm sure somebody else knows if that's true or not. I was hoping the Apple store would do a courtesy replacement, but nobody in the store was having any of it.

      Unless they learned their lesson from previous leaks.

      I'm of the opinion that Apple has gotten too big to effectively seal against leaks anymore. For one, the stakes are too high for the low-wage workers who they have no choice but to give early access to products. Even if no one worker sees the entire thing, it only takes a couple out of tens or hundreds of thousands of factory workers to each reveal a separate piece.

      In addition, even without seeing the actual device, inferences can be drawn from things like work schedules and the fact that Apple needs to book basically ALL of the air freight room from China to the US for a product launch. Those clues can't be covered up.

      Is the original Galaxy S that bad? I enjoyed mine back in the day. If your comparing it to modern day phones, well thats silly so don't' to that, but its still not a slow device. Try perhaps a root & rom install, might wake the phone back up.

      I don't think they intend to keep everything sealed up anyways. That whole "engineer left his iPhone 4 in a bar" story...maybe it did happen that way on accident. But, whatever the leak, it's 100% free advertising for Apple. Get's people hyped and in line to buy the phone on opening day. Droid had to make million dollar superbowl commercials to get people excited about their product.

      Sorry but Apple is the last company to compare advertising budgets to. They could probably bankrole a medium country with theirs.

      It is that bad. Locks up when I try to go into the gallery and I have to pull the battery. Most games are pretty much unplayable because they lock up all the time. Apps are the same, if I launch the facebook app it will lock up for a good 2-3 minutes before it displays anything. As for loading a custom rom, I was going to do that, but the only thing the USB cable does is charge the phone. I have tried 3 different computers and numerous cables and none will detect the phone at all.

      That wasn't my point. Obviously they have commercials for all their products. But leading up to the release of the 4, there wasn't anything but the leaked test unit that gizmodo or whoever got their hands on. They didn't use commercials to hype the product.

      I assume you have done a full wipe on it and started from a factory fresh load? From what I've seen, most Android phone problems are due to user modification or apps that have been installed.

      I think you're confusing mass commercial expenses w/ brilliant, low-cost guerilla marketing (aka "leaks").

      Yep. Not by choice either. The phone locked up loading the gallery and after pulling the battery it was soft bricked. I had to wipe everything and start from scratch. This phone is a huge pile of ****. I have to turn on airplane mode to even play some games.

      Finally installed the replacement display I ordered from eBay for $30. The job wasn't as bad as I anticipated, and the parts were OEM quality. It beat paying $150 for an outdated replacement phone.

      My boss told me to uninstall the iOS update 5.1.1 today, he said his phones been hanging and rebooted twice on him.

      I told him back then on iOS 5.0.1 to jailbreak his phone so I can keep his blobs on cydia, instead he updated to iOS 5.1 and now he updated to the latest it's too late.

      He's the kind of IT boss that wants all his personal stuff to get the latest and greatest updates and expect the newest updates to always work the best.

      I never tell him straight but imo, updating to the latest software is always rolling the dice. He said Jailbreaking iPhone is inviting hackers, I giggled a little inside. It's ok, I know most folks are anti-JB that's OK.
