I'd swap for a different phone. Sprint and their CMDA network is going to be going bye bye in while anyways.

Yeah might just do that. I guess Samsung kinda has the market for phones. And I'm not going Apple.

Why can't they make **** that works worth a damn anymore.

But here is another thought... At work the issue never happens, at parents house it seems fine, but once I get home the problem is persistent. Maybe the issue is with how the phone handles weak 4G signal.

Thread hijack... Halo Master Chief Collection just launched Halo Reach and the library to PC. Never thought I'd see the day. Been playing Halo on XBL since 2005.

That may be possible, are there any options for it to drop to 3G more readily? Is it in your house only or all around your house?

I did try 3G only and it was fine, no drop of connection. But that was like a week ago so truly don't remember.

It was now or probably never... So I gave up a car part to build my PC. Got it completed right before Christmas. Runs beautifully, and I love it.
Spent way more than I had intended; but I'd figured everything is good and the only thing that would need upgrading in the future is probably the GPU.

Hate to break it to ya, but your wallpaper is wrong.
And yea, def budget a GPU upgrade - RGB action on your current one is weak.

I upgraded my Core2Duo E8400 to a 2700X with 32GB DDR4 3400 and carried over my RX580 from another PC, gathering the rest here and there. Scored a RM1000X for $100 shipped so plenty of power lol.

Lol but I wouldn't mind a 964 tbh, although if I ever did get one it'd probably be a 977.2 instead. Yeah the 2070 super here should do me good for now; and I didn't want heavy rgb as it can get annoying. Even w/ these all the lighting sits at 50% brightness only.

Nice! I never done AMD but w/ this build I went w/ the 3700x. I only have 16gb DDR4 3466. Dang $100 only?!?! That's a steal!

Yeah, and my 2700X was $135 too, my X470 Asus ROG Strix Gaming F was $70+$8 part to repair it. I'm super budget eBaying this thing together lol. Only thing I overpaid on was the RAM I bought like 7 months ago. 32GB CJR die 3600 DDR4 CL18 I think. Not the best but good enough, can't get it to run at 3600 though but running 3400 is good enough. I'm going to repaste and remount the cooler on my RX580 soon and hope for better thermals there and I need to source a NVME drive for it but that'll have to be new. All told I'm like...
$135 CPU
$120 GPU
$150 RAM
$80 MotherBoard
$100 PSU
about $600. I've been hoarding my Amazon points and have $250 saved up so far, I think once I'm around $300-$400 in points I'll go for something new and nice maybe and kick in another $100 of my own money too. I'm hoping that Ampere is as good and efficient as they say it might be or that it tanks the prices on some older stuff perhaps.

Love the RGB. What are the specs? The only thing wrong with that wallpaper is that it’s not screen size. I would prefer a 993 but I wouldn’t kick a ‘90 964 out of bed.

Crappy pic but you get the idea.

Honestly, don't care about air cooled 911's - hyped up prices, nobody drives them because they're all "collector cars", crap AC, all the usual issues that come with old cars. No thanks, I'll take a 996/7.
Was checking out 944's for some time, though they've gone up in price, a lot, so I'm out. Boxsters are now cheaper and better in every way.

And I'm glad AMD is back in town. Always had AMD back in the day, Duron 700, Athlon 3200, Phenom X4, then X6, but had to switch to Intel for a while (i5-760, then i5-4670k) because AMD had nothing competitive. Ran right back to AMD with R5 1600, now R5 2600X. Never liked Intel's business practices - price gouging, forcing people to upgrade MB with every new gen, among others. Vega 56, 970 Pro NVMe, 16GB G.Skill RAM (also cannot get it to work at advertised speeds... ehh), Asus X470-I complete my miniITX build.

I had wanted to do ITX for my AMD but none of the ITX boards had good enough VRM for a 2700X and I couldn't find any broken that I knew I could repair.

I’ve been happy with my i5 but wouldn’t want to switch mobos either. My G-Skills are supposed to run at 1600 but they’re at 1333 for some reason. I can run XMP but not as stable. CL7 though. wink.gif

I like that 911s are worse than Coxsters. Yeah they’re overpriced, but I want to dance between under- and oversteer. Plus, my name. I’m destined to have a 911.

Yea, miniITX boards are expensive. The Asus X470-I I got was pricey AF, I really cringed buying it. Had the ASRock X370 miniITX before, but ASRock sucks on AMD these days (build a ASRock Taichi + R7 1700x for a buddy, and the board could barely handle the CPU at stock speeds...), so I had to upgrade. Asus has been pretty good to me, the on-board audio is almost as good as a decent USB DAC, so I called it good enough. Too many issues with USB dropping out on external DAC's for me, annoying.

I have never been able to build a PC that I was 100% happy with. Current setup is pretty good, but I'm not happy with the noise and stock fan control. Asus now has the best stock fan control I've ever seen (w/ ramp up delay, custom map), but it's still driven by CPU internal temp, which jumps too much. Planning to build a custom hardline loop w/ Corsair Commander Pro and water temp probe where fans would ramp up based on water temp - been planning for a year now, lol. In WC loops I've build in the past, the pump was usually the loudest part.

It was on sale, so I bought one:


Can't wait for it to get here, have wanted a synth with voltage controlled oscillators for some time as well as something semi-modular.

PC itself:
Asus ROG STRIX RTX 2070 Super
MSI x570 Carbon PRO WIFI
AMD 3700X
Corsair H115i AIO cooler (+2 140mm RGB fan)
Corsair Spec-Omega RGB Mid Tower (+2 120mm RGB fan)
Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR4 3466 CAS 16
Western Blue Digitbal 1TB SSD M.2 (probably get a second 1 TB NVME)

Other stuff:
Corsair K95 keyboard
Corsair Glaive mouse
Dell S2716DG monitor (1440p, 144hz, g-sync)

He he I would be okay w/ either tbh. But the price for these old ones are wayyyyyyy over-priced at the moment. Sure they're good, but I wouldn't be able to spend that much.

Agreed on the price, I know of a guy who owns like 20 near perfect models of the 964/993/etc. I wouldn't mind a boxster; but I think I'd rather go w/ the hardtop Cayman. If I could I would love a 997.2 4S (the S is good; but living in MN having that extra grip is nice).
Yeah, I was never AMD; but from all the research and my buddies AMD is definitely putting Intel on suicide watch w/ their new thread-ripper. Lisa has really turned the company around.

My R5 1600 AF (reduced clock 2600 basically) came in today, I repaired the B450 Tomahawk board I got a while back, and now I'm just waiting on RAM so I can make sure this motherboard works but I expect it to work. After that a graphics card, PSU, NVME, and my friends mid range gaming PC will be done. Hunting graphics card deals and there's just crap for good deals with used hardware still. I'll probably do like 1660 Super.
