My old Vivid finally died. After what I think is a heat issue at the beach it killed the backlight. It stayed under the umbrella and inside the beach bag but it was 90+ degree that day and I don't think my Vivid liked it. I could still see the display but only indoors and in low light. I used the old girl for about 2 weeks then the battery stopped holding its charge. I walked into the AT&T store with a tear in my eye to say goodbye to a faithful friend. Getting a brand new gun metal gray HTC One M8 sure will wipe a tear from your eye fast.
Anyway, goodbye old friend and all here as well. I couldn't have rooted, flashed or otherwise made my HTC Vivid truly my own.
