Got this phone from one of John Legere's #PhoneShame  campaigns. Can't switch to T-Mobile, so instead of letting it go to waste, I'm selling it.
For sale on Swappa: a gently-used CWQ088 Samsung Galaxy S 6 (T-Mobile) for $550. Buy safely on Swappa and save time and money.

Movie industry lobbyists at the MPAA are trying to resurrect SOPA-style web censorship via a back door. Let's defeat online censorship again. Tell the MPAA to kill the #ZombieSOPA. https://takeaction.withgoogle.com/g-stop-mpaa

Samsung s3 running 0404 nightly (d2lte). Phone shut down, wouldn't boot again, presumably from low battery. Plug it in, immediately says 42% charge remaining and boots up fine while plugged in. This isn't the first time the charge indicator has been off by a considerable amount.

Makes me wonder which is off. Is the phone shutting down because it thinks it is low on battery or because it really is low, but the meter is inaccurate? It's been like this for the past several builds.

The battery is going bad. I had this issue with my Galaxy S Fascinate. Replacing the battery solved the issue. The meter was unable to read the battery proplery to give an accurate reading. I was running 4.2 on the device. Try a different battery.

If that doesn't solve your problem, you may have a problem with the ROM. Reset phone. Test it out with a clean run for a day.

And lastly, it could be a hardware problem. The device would be out of manufacturer warranty and not be able to make a claim. You're also running a custom ROM. Voids any and all support from Service Provider and Samsung. You'll have to flash and lock down your phone with TouchWiz ROM and clear Odin counter with Triangle Away. That is if you want support for this phone hardware wise.

I just moved from stable to the latest nightly (3/22), so this may be an issue with the new unified builds that I was just unaware.

Instead of "Sprint" showing on my lock screen, and in my quick toggles I'm just getting "Roaming indicator off".

Is that normal?

My Note 2 running Nightlies was doing the same thing, but it's back to normal as of today's update.

Ello is great for display, but how successful is it with exposure? Seems that it's a great platform, but you're presenting to an (relatively) empty auditorium. 
Are you an artist or photographer? Do care about the integrity of your images? Do you dislike ads and sponsored posts shoved in your face? Do you dislike having 99% of your feed filtered out of view for those who follow you? Look at the above and answer this question: where does my photograph of ...

Rather somber as far as Christmas tunes go, but this is quite possibly my favorite track from the new Pentatonix Christmas album.

Jack of all trades, and master of them, too. Yeah. You heard me.
Introduction
I'm not the Erik Bates who stars in Jersey Boys on Broadway.  I am, however, the Erik Bates who is a City Government Contact Center Ninja. 

I'm a practitioner of public service for the City of St. Louis, MO, and a former Higher Education professional.

I love living in the City, and, despite my rural West Texas roots, I have found that I think I would survive quite well as a city boy.  

Most of what you'll see on Twitter, Facebook, or on Google+ will be random commentary, photos, and videos of my life in the city, be it at my job, or just, you know, stuff.

I'm a Google fanboy, a lover of Public Transportation, a neophyte Gardener, and a geek-of-all-trades.

You probably don't know me, but you kinda wish you did.
