What the hell. Just saw tonight was their final episode. Next season is just Adam and Jamie.
They kept it pretty quiet, I don't think anyone knew. Just a 30 second mention at the end of tonight's episode.
I'm not a fan of this move.

OP's issue is with android. It makes you sign in to a google account to download apps etc and automatically routes that email to the gmail app. All other email is set up through the phones "email" app.
Set the gmail app to not check email anymore, and add your gmail account to the stock "email" ...

It's a motorla portable power pack. Charge that thing up, take it with you, plug it in to your phone when it's getting low.
The big usb port is to plug in an Apple wire, the attached wire is to charge a microusb device, and the micro port is tmto charge the battery pack itself.

| Tech Board|| re: Is Verizon Edge a good deal? - Joe on 7/10/14 at 11:31 pm|
To make it simpler: Get a discount on the phone up front (I.e $199 with a two year contract instead of 650 full retail) or pay full retail for the phone and get a monthly discount on your plan.
Get your discount up front and sign a contract, or over time with no contract and get new phones more ...

EDGE isn't a plan. It's a way of paying for the phone every month.
You get a discount off your MoreEverything plan when you choose to pay for your phone with EDGE.
| Tech Board|| re: Is Verizon Edge a good deal? - Joe on 7/10/14 at 10:13 am|
Yes you own the phone, and the discount stays on. So your bill would be significantly cheaper from month 20+ until you decide to get a new phone. ...

Poetic Atmosphere case and a tempered glass screen protector is my current setup. Case is super thin, but made of hard plastic. Dropped the thing so many times and no damage has ever happened. Dropped it right on the glass once...shattered the glass screen protector but the actual screen was fine.
