1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

What are people doing with their old phones after purchasing the Thunderbolt?

    I think I'm going to keep my OG Droid to use as a navigation system since I have the car dock for it. Is this even possible? Otherwise, I'll just keep it for flashing ROM's and stuff.

    the only way you can use it as a car dock is if you have wifi connected on it.. or if its active with a data plan

    There's a 3rd party nav program that actually downloads the maps before use and then you don't need data. So you can install it, use WiFi for the map DL and then have a gps unit!

    I'm selling my Droid 2 Global to CashForSmartphones for $220 which makes my new TB free! I did this with a couple of Blackberry's I used to have and it worked out very well. They are very easy to deal with and it's a lot less hassle then selling it privately.

    I'm keeping mine and will probably hard wire it in to my car so I can run coverage mapper, WiGLE WiFi, and other apps that I don't want to run on my primary phone where it will kill the battery.

    Can anyone give me a suggestion? I want to trade mine in to Verizon or otherwise recycle it, but the display doesn't work. I know it can be used for parts, but all my info is on the phone and I can't see it to do a factory reset. Is there any way to erase it mechanically? Probably not, eh?

    testing device. wifi surfing and downloading files at work with some thunderbolt shooting a tether to it, since they apparently can detect when i hook my phone up to the system (z4root showed as a virus and i got yelled at) and we cant d/l stuff. and im sure theyre tracing these key strokes. love my job. back to work
