By the way, this is not my phone. It would be hard to take a picture of my phone WITH my phone; especially as it does not work. But apparently they shatter quicker than people's eardrums at a Michael Bolton concert.
So I won't be answering calls or texts for a bit. Email me and I'll check whenever I can. Damn first-world problems!
But the screen on my long-shattered Galaxy S3 has finally sputtered to stray lines and mostly blackness. I'm not due for a new upgrade, a new one cost $300+ if I just buy one, or if I eBay one $230+, plus at least a week transit time, plus it's hard to trust people on eBay, plus they're mostly refurbished by people who can't seem to tell the difference between 'there' 'their' and 'they're'. I don't why I regard that as a bellwether for general stupidity, but apparently I do. Also, 'to' 'too' and 'two'. Seriously. Not that hard to figure out.I can get it repaired for $150, but they have to order parts and I won't have it until a couple of days past Christmas. Not having a phone over Christmas will suck. But that is probably going to be what I have to do.
