Thought I would hate a non hard slideout-keyboard but not with a 5.5" screen. I am now phasing out my laptop. G3 has slide-able split screen..Phone connection is crisp, loud.
If the root counter on the D4 is in recovery menu as "que=0/0" , would be in a similar fashion on other phones?
It worked for about a week, then the buzz came right back
This was with 3 separate replacement speaker units - I tore my phone apart 3 times, and I was getting pretty good at it before I finally just gave up, SBF'd back to stock, and went to the VZW store hat in hand. I talked to a higher-up at the store, and it turns out VZW has a huge stash (almost 8k units as of July) of D4s for exactly this situation. They overnighted me a CLNR phone and only in the past week has the goram buzz started up again...
I think the writing is finally on the wall for my D4. I went back into the store today to look at the latest offerings and the Droid Maxx is pretty sweet. With the Droid Turbo launching in a few weeks (which has a HUGE battery, updated specs), D4 might finally be getting retired. My upgrade is up in February, so maybe she'll hold out until then. Quite sad, really... I wanted a D5 so badly, because the keyboard form factor RULES and is superior to touchscreens in every way, but looks like that won't ever happen =/
