  1. Google Wallet works now?

    Using the tap-to-pay with my GS4 almost daily locally where I live. . Part of everyday life now. Also have the Google Wallet Mastercard debit card that I am using these days.. Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Bricked EM?

    Luckily I was just able to upgrade over to a GS4.. didn't have to go through anybody that. US USCC was wanting to send my EM in for replacement. I've heard the stories of how long it can take for this process, in 'some' cases. Didn't want to deal with all that as I needed a phone immediately. Work... Even tho I'm not all that impressed with the GS5, still wish my phone would have waited a bit more to 'brick' until the GS5 was released. lol Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Apply 4.4.2 update or wait?

    I have not not had any MicroSD card issues since my 4.4.2 update on my S4. I am using both a SanDisk Mobile Ultra 32GB and a Samsung 64GB MicroSD's. Both are Class 10/UHS-1. Maybe the issues people are having with the 4.4 update and MicroSD's are related to certain brands/class of cards? Cannot be sure.. But as I've said, I have not had any issues yet.
  4. Cases

    I am using a OB Defender case with my S4 atm. Got it for next to nothing when I bought the S4 at a local USCC store. Although it is a bit on the bulky side of things, it does seem to offer good protection all around. Other people have opinions on the OB Defender series? Also, does anyone have the S4 S-View Flip Cover? I have a 50% promo code to buy an accessory from the site and was looking at possibly picking this up..
  5. Got 4.4.2 update problems

    I've noticed decent battery life coming from my S4 with 4.4.2. I can't say it's a huge increase, but it surely feels 4.4.2 is better optimized over the previous android install (4.3). Battery life seems to be increased a tad.. not 100% confirmed, but going to keep monitoring it. ☆ Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk Pro ☆
  6. Bricked EM?

    I've tried the fast boot options previously, along with the safe mode, both a no go for the EM. Wish there was a way to force access to the phone via USB cable, but even that will not allow access to the phone contents. I am not worried about anything stored on the phone currently.. I actually am trying to completely wipe the EM, if I can. ☆ Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk Pro ☆
  7. Bricked EM?

    So, I've been using my old Electrify M solidly for about 1 1/2 yrs or so without any major issues. Last week, my EM locks up and I reset it. After which the EM is stuck at the initial load/boot-up screen shown below: I've tried to reset the EM multiple times with the same result. I then tried to go into the boot menu, which I was able to, but none of the options worked there as well. Tried the Recovery option and got the result shown below: I took the EM to the local US CA store and they tried to do a factory restore on it as well. No dice there either. I fear the EM is bricked.. Anyone know of a way to get the EM back to any working order? I am looking into rooting if it's possible in its current state. I've since upgraded to a Galaxy S4 and just looking at what options are available for the EM, if any, besides being a paperweight. Not even sure if the root option can work being I can't access anything on the EM atm. Maybe someone has a trick I can learn... Sent from my SCH-R970 using Tapatalk
  8. Asphalt 8.

    As much as I enjoyed playing all the series of Asphalt games, Asphalt 8 is NOT compatible with the EM? .... WHY?!? I mean, I kinda know why.. but I was just looking forward to played A8 when it was released.. now I have to upgrade my phone... just to play this game. lol.. maybe not. But still, maybe.

  9. Any word on JB 4.2/4.3?

    Heard that rumor a while back myself.. the local USC store does not know anything about any future updates to the EM. Not surprised. Sent from my XT901 using Tapatalk 4
  10. The Ballistic Shell Sucks. DO NOT BUY!

    Sorry for reviving an old topic.. I recently bought a Body Glove case made for a RAZR M and it fits the Electrify M perfectly! It has been hard to find a good case for the EM locally.. without buying online anywho. I looked into getting the Ballistics case also, but was just too much $$ for my liking. The Body Glove case was only $15 and like I said, fits great. Glad I picked it up. Sent from my XT901 using Tapatalk 4
  11. Any word on JB 4.2/4.3?

    I will most likely be upgrading to a new phone soon, Moto X maybe, but in the meantime, I would love to see 4.3 come to the Electrify M. Not going to get my hopes up too much tho. I still like my Electrify M, but it's starting to feel a bit dated. Sent from my XT901 using Tapatalk 4
