    PSA: AT&T Loyalty Discount - $450 off and $10/line discount YMMV This "loyalty discount" was new to me but apparently has been around for at least a few years as some SD members say they used it to get the X. It is surprisingly a great deal for current AT&T members...

    PSA... AT&T now charging for a SIM swap

    Juet brought my son in to the local AT&T store to swap SIMs from his OnePlus One to my OnePlus 5 that I was going to return but he wanted it. AT&T now charges $5 for a SIM swap. Not the end of the world but more free money for them. Guess it is one of the downsides of T-MOBILE as they charge so...

    BOGO.. Samsung S8 direct from Samsung

    If only this applied to AT&T... No monthly credits. Refund of up to $750 direct from Samsung. Only issue is one of the phones must be activated on T-mobile via the Samsung website. Seems to be a smokin deal compared to the normal BOGO deals as those are usually monthly bill credits and don't...

    Something new... Slickwraps Hemp Wrap

    Bodyguardz Crown - iPhone 6/6+ and Note 4

    Just got my Bodyguardz Crown for my iPhone 6+. Takes care of the issue of the rounded edge on the iPhone 6/6+ or Note 4 by adding an aluminum bezel that goes on over the tempered glass screen protector. Installation is pretty much idiot proof as the package includes a form fitting plastic...

    Why no love for LG G3?

    Why is there no love for the LG G3? Size wise it packs a 5.5" screen in a body significantly smaller than the Note 3/4, OnePlus One and iPhone 6 Plus. I owned the G2 before and it was a nice phone but LG skin was not my favorite. Using a OnePlus One now and it has been a great phone but miss...
