    Questions about a Verizon LTE mifi and my Spectrum LTE SIM

    Anyone know if I can put my LTE SIM from my Spectrum into a Verizon MiFi and have 4G on the mifi? Do I need to add the MiFi on to my account (I have an old plan, not the new ones, so I really don't want to pay another plan fee for it, I checked Verizon's website and to switch to the new plans...

    anyone thinking of ditching the Spectrum for an Optimus G?

    this is what I was expecting for next year, although the display resolution is still a touch lower than I expected next year. It also has the new display tech that Apple has for "possible use in the iPhone 5" that eliminates the "air gap" between the display layers. Things I'd like to see...

    Root Random Reboot causes

    I want to start a thread (so I did, as you can obviously see at this point) so we can log possible and confirmed causes for random reboots. I think there are multiple issues at hand, it happens in all LG stock base Rom builds, and obviously is caused by multiple problems, some of which have...

    just picked one up from newegg about 10 minutes ago... attached partial screenshot of the page. I know this is related to the amazon thread, but with the lower price I thought it deserved it's own listing.
