TRAITOR, I'm just playing, I'm glad you definitely like your new phone though. How would you rate it above your old Samsung Focus?

I know even though, I have updates to be notified turned on, it never notifies me until I plug my phone into my Laptop, but definitely tell me what happens, should be a simple fix like the other HTC phone's that had the problem I'm guessing.

They say the First Generation phones, will receive the update will be missing some key features(Gyroscopes, and whatever new they added for example), and the 2nd Generation(Lumnia, Titan II, ??) phones will receive the update as well fully featured(Not sure if they'll miss anything I HIGHLY doubt it personally), but I'm trying to stay strong and not buy the Lumnia 900 and wait for whatever W8 Lumnia T-Mobile gets. Just until Q4 stay strong Dtrain.

Have you checked out this Windows Phone Suggestions but I would definitely love all the above, I would also like faster updates, and NOT LETTING Carriers dictate when to release them, I don't have ATT, but I think it's pretty crappy that the 8170 could probably fix many issues with some of the phones, and it's getting ignored. I want Hulu plus, and a couple other things and I'll shut up personally.

The White has a glossy look to it like the White iPhone 3Gs, while it was my top choice, just seems like more phones are coming out white now too. So I'll stick with the Cyan.....and if I change my mind on the white, I'll just swap it out within the 2 week window of "Buyer's Remorse". smile.gif
I wanted the White, but I don't want people to mistake it for an Iphone, I think the Cyan is definitely the way to go man, if I had it my way I would definitely go Cyan, basically for every reason you listed above, you got to do some sort of Review once you get your 900 for us cool.gif.

Was on the XDA and was looking around, seems like most of the people who have the update seem to have 8107, maybe that could be a reason why. But also as well apparently the call and signal is related to the back cover on the phone Back Cover XDA Thread Link makes sense I guess, considering that the cover is right over the Antenna apparently, in the thread it's a couple people who said they filed the cover down(Post #20) and also a couple people ordered new Covers and noticed better call Quality. It's another Post(#5) that apparently helped the poster improve call Quality.

Lucky, I still don't have 4G here, I still don't have a 4G phone but still, how are you liking your 900? Also I like that wallpaper that you picked out for your phone there.

I have no clue about taking the screen off. Never seen anyone take the screen off a phone, I want to go out on a limb and say it would just be like any other phone.

biggrin.gif the threads def not used as much as it was awhile ago.

tongue.gif well went back to my focus i917 for now. But so far i got the screws out of the focus s, but i cant seem to manage to get the internals out/separated from the metal outer housing frown.gif it seems like its stuck (thinking maybe i dented something so its wedged in there maybe?)

But from what i been able to figure out the front glass is glued onto the amoled part, so i would need to replace both... So i guess first need to figure out how to separate the screen from the phone, then some how locate a replacement screen for it. redface.gif

Just an idea, and I'll try looking tomorrow, but since it's a Samsung AMOLED Screen, maybe it's the same for all the Samsung AMOLED Screens and I could probably find a guide on how to take it off from another phone, considering it should be under the same format of removing/replacing the screen and what not.

HA, I totally just found exactly what you needed sir cool.gif

http://www.careace.net/2010/06/09/disassembly-of-the-samsung-galaxy-s/ That's how to disassemble the Galaxy S phone, figuring it should be under the same setup MAYBE?
Found a Video actually so this should be EXACTLY what you need besides a Screen.

And I wasn't sure which Focus you had so here's a List of all the Samsung focus parts and they have both of the Focus's on the site just not sure which is relevant to yours. http://www.globaldirectparts.com/Samsung-Replacement-Repair-Parts-s/42.htm (Did not check to see if they had the screen just saw the Focus was listed, Almost 5AM quite lazy sorry didn't check beforehand)
