    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
