    It's a service fee that is universally accepted in Texas. Duh!

    It looks like it is a fee that you Texans are paying to help the fine deaf community.

    How hasn't radioshack gone out of business already?

    Does Radio Shack carry both AT&T and Verizon?

    This is an odd development.

    I can't tell...but in a pinch, they are the only widespread shop that will sell you random electronic components and (some) funky cables. The little corner with switches, resistors, and LEDs keeps getting smaller but it still exists. Usually has a pretty big markup but on tiny cheap parts it is hard to beat online price+shipping unless you are buying in quantity.

    No way they actually make enough money off that stuff to keep the doors open.


    I think the only major they don't carry is T-Mobile. Of course someone posted up above that radioshack was also having issues filling orders so maybe the store I walked by was a fluke (State and either jackson or adams)

    Radioshack is great for batteries. They carry most every type you could be looking for outside of something for your car.

    EDIT: Hmmmm. I may swing by a local one before I hit the gym.

    Both cars have the stock, basic stereo system, and I got aftermarket adapters to feed into either car's CD changer inputs, so they need to feed the car stereo analog signals. One uses the DICE Silverline, while the other uses a Dension 500. The 30-pin connector also lets me charge the phone, and control the iPhone's music player with the car's own audio controls, which is convenient. It will be interesting to see if the 30-pin adapter preserves control by the car stereo, but it's not a dealbreaker.

    The Dension does have a USB port, but it only knows how to talk to mass storage devices like USB sticks and hard drives. I suppose if worse comes to worst, I could just copy my iTunes library to a portable SSD, and rearrange my car's wiring and keep the hard drive in the trunk. But I'm lazy, and navigating gigabytes of music with the stock stereo will be impractical.

    Those of you who have your new phones, have you tried using the phone mic with your head phones? My experience is that headset mics suck generally, and my favorite setup is to use no-mic headphones and when in call or record mode just use the phone's mic. This is possible with the 4 and the original iPhone, but not the 3G series. I'm hoping they haven't changed this up again. That would mean trying to search out another Shure or Griffin adapter, and they are discontinued. All the ones made now suck.

    god it feels so good to be back on ios.

    i appreciated android and my nexus for what they were, but the bugginess of the OS and the TERRIBLE battery life of my nexus made it a hassle to use, really.

    this phone is awesome guys (no fanboi).

    using mine completely naked, btw. no cases, no skins, no film bullshit.
