I bought clear Spigen cases for us and the highest rated tempered glass on amazon. (They all seem to suck but oh well)

Spigen Tough Armor. I really like it especially because it directs the speaker to the front.

Sweet corey. I'll do that maybe.

I chatted with Verizon and asked if I could trade in an iPhone 6 with today's promo and apply it to Jocelyn's pixel. They said no.

Oh, I fixed Jocelyn's iPhone 6

Ahhh! I just checked mine and it will be here Tuesday. That sucks if it requires a signature, I'll have to go to the UPS place to pick it up later that night.

Corey, what does the Android transfer process include? Worth doing? Is there even one? Jocelyn did it coming from an iPhone

So much better than my turbo. Fast as hell. Glad I got the small one. One handed use is a breeze.

Good call. I did that on Jocelyn's but haven't on mine. Doing now.

Go to your phone's Settings.
Tap on Notifications.
Tap on the Gear icon in the top-right corner.
Tap on the toggle next to "Pulse notification light".

Smaller keyboard is the biggest change for me. I imagine after a couple days that won't be an issue

It'll be easy once you actually see the settings menu

Werd, the setup process is very easy. These things are minor tweaks that are optional but easy to do. Post here if you have questions once you get it.

Can you turn off keyboard vibration? I could with my Note 4.

Also, note to self. Change the CPT logo in Tapatalk so it is round (if that is possible)
