I did the rooting thing 3 years ago. This is just old age. And it's pissing me off. Now I gotta deal with training a new phone.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


Photos are in the cloud.
Phone numbers other than the one I put in there today, google has them
My apps, google has them

My bookmarks, gone
My recent entries to my checking and quarterlies, gone

And I'm sure a million other things that I don't realize as of yet are gone too.

I think I have all my photos on the SD card from the past years

I had a couple of APKs saved but apparently in the phone and not on the SD card. So they're gone.

Leo can you perform a hard reset ?, other than pulling the battery for a while, on my Nokia I had to push and hold 2 buttons at the same time.

I feel your pain I have been carrying 2 phones for a month because I could not transfer pics or contacts, had my tech guy here las night putting info in to the cloud etc.

My wife's phone went ass up earlier this year and she lost pictures of her boy "Dewalt" the dog we lost last year

What I think is the problem is the charging port. A few months back I almost the phone crapped out on me and by plugging it into my computer and moving the USB cable around I finally got it back up and running. After that it seemed mostly fine until about now. The phone has turned itself off a few times randomly in between those to time scales and last night seemed to be the last.

When I plug the charger in, nothing happens, no sound that it's connected, no light showing that it's connected, no nothing. If I pull the battery and put it back in the phone will buzz and show the S4 logo and then shut down. If I pull the battery, put it back in and then plug the charger in it shows the battery with zero charge when I know the two batteries I have are at least at 40%.

So I'm taking a chance and I bought the circuit board that contains the power port, it comes with some tools to take the phone apart. We'll see if I can get it working again. By that time I'll have a new phone, but I need some of the data off the phone. If I can get it that'd make my life a little easier. If not, I'll need to seek other ways to get the data. Some missing phone numbers because I only sync 3 or 4 times a year and the data I save on my business purchases. Those I can get through my receipts and bank transaction list.

It'd be much easier to get the phone working and just transfer them over.

I'll be at the shop, no phone, no internet. I'll probably actually get some work done.

I clean my charging port often with electrical contact cleaner. Has worked every time. Took a filet knife and gently scraped both sides of contacts.

Hate stock run days every stop Cody hundreds of dollars. I know it's all in the cost of things but I hate it.

I do love not running out of things on the job

At lunchtime I played Minesweeper. I was jonesing for some internet.

And now because of Black Friday, I have to wait for a phone because they were wiped out of anything that I wanted. Tomorrow at the earliest, probably Thursday.

How will I ever survive
