Hey guys,
Picking up a new microsd soon, and my comp doesn't have a SD card slot in the event I ever want to plug it in to transfer files, format, etc. Can anyone recommend a good/reliable USB microsd card reader that would allow that? So far everything I've seen on Amazon looks pretty cheap and gimmicky.

You can just keep the card in the phone and connect it via USB and it will come up just like if you out it in a card reader

Is this the best place to ask about Android stuff? I have a question about possible connectivity to a PC to play/stream music.

What is the best tablet for around 500? I was thinking the note 10.1. Any other opinions? Mostly going to be used for business related stuff.

So my S3 just developed a new issue where it only rings 30% of the time when someone calls me and can't hold a call (incoming or outgoing for more than 20 seconds). I have no issues with Data (4G or wifi) or text messages.

I've tried restoring to stock, different basebands, kernels, removing/reinserting the sim, etc. and nothing helps. Issue developed out of the blue and really sucks.


Fortunately, I have Spare Phone so I can use my Google Voice# coupled with my unlimited data plan to get me by until I can get VZW to replace it.

Any one ever run into a scenario like that?

Yeah, something went physically wrong with it. VZW wouldn't issue a CLNR because of a tiny hairline crack on the corner of the screen but agreed it was a manufacturer defect. I ended up shelling out $99 to Asurion for a warranty replacement due to a "cracked screen" per vzw's recommendation. They sent me a BNIB replacement and told me to send back the old one without any accessories so now I have a spare battery, headphones, charger, and even a sim card.

Funny thing was I tried selecting electrical/mechanical defect as the reason for the claim on Asurion's website and they denied the claim stating vzw would cover it. Had to submit another claim saying it was due to the cracked screen even though that wasn't my primary reason for exchanging it (the crack was tiny and only noticeable if you looked for it).

The new device is running way better than my original so it was worth the deductible.

Not too bad then. And at least now you have some extra accessories. My friends iPhone 4s had to be warrantied through Verizon and when he called they told him they were super back ordered on the 4s for claims so they just gave him an iPhone 5 and all new accessories for it. All he had to do was pay his deductible

Are you just rooted or did you bypass the bootloader too (loki'd)? Also did your screen stop working or did you actually crack it?

If you cracked your screen, VZW won't do anything for you. You need to go through Asurion (assuming you have insurance) in order to replace it. In this case, you do not need to do anything as far as unrooting -- it's not a warranty replacement so it doesn't matter if the warranty was void due to rooting, etc.

If your screen isn't working due to a manufacturer defect, you definitely need to unroot and undo the bootloader bypass in order to get an exchange through VZW. If you are simply rooted, I believe the SU apk has the option to permanently unroot. You could probably get away with simply deleting the SU apk as well (I realize the binary will still be there but I don't think they check for that -- although they could). However, I don't know how to undo the bootloader bypass.....I don't own an S4 so never looked into the process but I understand it is completely reversible. I suppose you could always just accept the OTA update to relock the phone.

I did the ota update on my s4 (att) and it took away the root, but my boot loader still seems unlocked cause when I restart the phone it still says custom with an open padlock when it boots up. And for some reason, xposed and multiwindow mod still work without having root

Ah, yes, you're all good cause ATT doesn't crack down on bootloaders like vzw.

One of the main "features" VZW pushed together with the newest OTA for the vzw S4 was "increased bootloader security". In other words, they cranked out a build almost specifically to have samsung patch the loki exploit -- I don't think other carriers did this.

This is one of the reasons why the S4 hasn't really appealed to me all that much. I like it over the S3 mainly for the IR blaster......but I don't think I could handle a locked down device.
