  • Cool. Glad to have you. But truth be told, I'm not doing this one to lose weight. I'm done focusing on weight, I think. I'm doing this in an effort to get back on track and remember what it's like to live in a good feeling body. Hopefully there will be some weight loss, but I'm not pushing for it. If anything, I suspect I'll drop back to my set point of 185 or something.

    ******

    Soooo very tired and lethargic. There is definitely something going on in this body. Immune system is working in hyperdrive - probably to combat these allergies. I hope the W30 helps to eliminate those allergies. I have no idea what plant or micro-organism is causing them... what's pollinating right now? Could it be a mold thing? No idea. All I know is I'm sleepy and my nose burns/tingles. ZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • Samsung won't cover the damages to my phone. A cracked screen voids the warranty so the cost of any repairs would have to be paid for by me. I told the service rep on the phone that if it was any other product on the planet that broke within a day, the company would repair or replace it and as a result of this incident I will likely not ever buy another Samsung product. I am very very very disappointed and unhappy right now.

      I think it's time to go leave a glowing review about this Samsung product and their "warranty" policy.

      • From an IT perspective, I understand why they won't replace it, though sometimes companies will cave (which is why I suggested it, but maybe it's more common with computers than phones). How do they know you didn't chuck it at a wall to try and get a better/replaced model or something like that? People try to play warranties all the time. Physical damage is never covered unless you buy a separate plan to cover that. You'd have to sue them and find proof that it's a fault in the design rather than unfortunate user error. =\

        Sorry, that is probably not helping, but it is the nature of electronics. It is up to the consumer to warranty against physical damage. Verizon offers a plan to cover liquid and other damage for something like $7 a month, with a $99 deductible.

        I hope you can find a reasonable replacement or it is not too bad to live with for a little while. I definitely encourage getting a good cover though! I only use a phone without one if it's a cheap phone. I've dropped my HTC Incredible 2 a million times since I got it 14 months ago and it's still working fine.

        • Amazon.com: J. Tyler's review of Samsung Galaxy S III/S3 GT-I9300 Factory U...

          My Amazon review of the Samsung Galaxy S3. If you are in the market for a new phone and have EVER in your life broken a phone, beware of this one. It's so incredibly fragile!

            I have insurance. It costs $6 a month, with a $100 deductible. I am just livid about this b/c it was ONE EFFING day before it broke. I'm not asking them to replace the phone with a newer model... I asked them to replace the glass. Given how easily the glass breaks, I'm willing to bet it would cost next to nothing for them to replace it.

            Besides, if they were to provide a replacement, they could refurbish the "broken" one and still resell it at a profit, so whatever reasoning they may have is invalid.

            • And reading the reviews for this phone, it seems like broken glass is a common problem. Sadly, I didn't read the Amazon reviews, only read the reviews at US Cellular before I purchased.

              • Since posting my review, US Cellular is "checking my options". Even if they just agree to fix it and not replace it, I'd be happy. I just feel trapped. I don't feel like the phone breaking was my fault, and as a result, I have no recourse should anything else go wrong with the phone since the broken screen voids the warranty. Someone posted a link on Facebook for me where I can buy replacement parts and said I can youtube the instructions for replacing it. If US Cellular won't do anything for me from here, this is what I plan to do.

                It's funny though, how I mentioned that I'm not currently contractually bound to US Cellular and can leave at any time (they only do a single 2 year contract, after that they're certain their quality customer service, cellular service, and phone options will keep you there - my contract expired 2 years ago), and now all of a sudden they're checking my options... typical.

                • The rumblings in my gut tell me today may be gut clean-out day... Right on schedule, too... 3 days after cleaning up the diet. It's interesting how rhythmical our bodies are.

                  • as for the phone - remember - the squeaky wheel always gets some grease! Keep after them, Jenn. The review was written very well! The last thing a company wants is bad publicity.

                    Hope your gutt doesn't cause too much trouble for you today.

                        Agreed. I am persistent to the point of annoyance in cases that I think warrant it. Brad thinks I'm being ridiculous b/c he said putting the phone in my pocket was a bad idea... Really??? Where else am I supposed to put it if I don't have my purse??? I didn't do anything with the phone that it shouldn't have been able to handle. Being in my pocket comfortably while I'm sitting should not break a phone... any phone. That's unacceptable durability, in my opinion.

                        So, I'm complaining.

                        • I agree. They know the phone is put is peoples pockets - I mean - where does a man put his phone? Every man on earth who owns a cell phone puts it in his pocket. I always keep mine in my purse, and always have my purse with me. If I'm at a friends/relatives and I put my purse in the corner or leave it in the car - I can live without having that stupid thing with me at every second. You probably don't remember life before cell phones! In the "olden days" when people weren't at home or in a place we knew we could get ahold of them - we just had to leave a message and hope they called us back the same day! It was a different world 25 years ago.

                          • I didn't get my first cell phone until after I turned 21... I fully remember life before cell phones. But having missed very very very important phone calls before, I tend to always have it on my person just in case. But yes... men carry their phones in their pockets, so it should be able to survive life in a pocket.

                            • I guess I assumed you were part of that "cell phones in grade school" population. I never will understand why a person so young needs to have a cell phone.

                              Maybe the difference between men and women carrying their phones is that men tend to carry them in the front pocket, and women tend to carry in the butt pocket. The butt would likely put more pressure during sitting. And men tend to wear baggier pants. But still.......... regardless of the carrying place --- what happened to you phone is simply manufacturer error!!!! No question about that.

                              • I had it in my front pocket. My back pockets usually button so it's less accessible.

                                I agree about phones at early ages. Although, Brad and I just joked the other day when we were wondering something about Brady (I think we were trying to find him) and I said "If he had a phone we could just call him". lol Of course, he's not getting a phone. Maybe once he starts driving, but I can't see us getting him one before that.
