I was sitting at my desk with my phone in my pocket, and it simple slipped out. It landed on a carpeted and padded floor, and the screen came on, so I just put it back and didn't think about it again. But then, I pulled it out to make a call, and no touchscreen. Reboot. No touchscreen. Pulled the battery for 5 minutes and rebooted. No touchscreen. Factory reset, pulled the battery, waited, rebooted, and still no touchscreen.
I had this U8220 just one week short of three years, but it is to be no more.
Fortunately, a friend had a HTC Android phone to lend me, so I'm immediately mobile again. (I don't even know what model it is yet, but it has Froyo, so all is well.) But I will be making a new phone purchase today, probably a Jiayu G2S but maybe a Jiayu G3 or something else. (The build quality of this HTC is really nice!)
So I will probably not be around here much anymore. I leave you all in the good hands of desalesouche. It looks like he's doing a great job with his new roms.
And finally, a big thank you to all those "really smart people" who answered my many questions and taught me so much and did such amazing "hackery" and made such awesome roms and tweaks. I had a great ride here in the Pulse forum!
Enjoy it while it lasts! :-)
