    Spray paint the battery door and use clear coat liberally. If I was spending over 150 for a new phone I would get a different phone entirely....not a different color.

    I have no issues with it, except mms with wifi on.
    Yesterday my phone was ran over by a Toyota Rav4, and still not only works but looks brand new still.



    I did have to clean the tire treads off the screen.

    lol nice, I guess its worth noting I've (unfortunately) dropped my merc on the ground a few times without any damage to the screen or phone itself. latest incident I was at a Dodgers game and after 4 beers I stood up, phone dropped onto the cement and considering the sound it made i thought that was finally the one, but no it still works like new and screen doesn't have any scratches <knock on wood>.

    edit: mine also has the mms/wifi issue I'm curious if the replacement mercury will have the same problem, being it seems firmware related, ill find out tomorrow.

    No doubt! If you wanna change colors that bad, order other colors off Ebay when they become available, if they're not already......or my personal favorite, get really good with enamel spray paint, then you could have a trick snow camo black and white action. Personally,i use a shock guard, so i don't really care what the phone's color is.....could be pink and i wouldn't even know :-)

    So y'all, it comes down to this: again,i hate to reference cars here, but i am a car guy at heart! You can buy 100(insert make/model) then get that one that just is a piece of junk no matter what you do, out never runs right, or run at all for that matter! Before my gtp, i only ran Subaru. I picked up a '97 imprezza wagon(supposedly bulletproof 2.2liter), ok, fast forward 6 months, two engines and three, count 'em, three transmissions later, when i thought all was finally finished and would last for a few years........guess what blew? Nope, not the engine or transmission. Oh no, that would be too easy, nope it was the ecu, engine-side wiring harness, tear differential, alternator and, AND the awd transaxle! I don't think i cussed over a car more than that time, ever! Love my wife, "let's go get you a new car. Anything you want, but it can't be a Subaru!" Anything? I want power, unbridled, upgradeable freaking reliable damn power for a change! And then can my gtp, and my Merc (replacing my once kick-ass A1&2) ahhhh, ain't life grand? :-)

    Yeah? You forget so easily whom i sent a "test dog" to! PG is my man! I WILL give him the benefit of the doubt! I don't need the badest, biggest, fastest out there! Personally, i have always gone for the most UNIQUE, UNOBTIANABLE(to the masses) on anything that i try to own. Why do you think I own a 1963 Acecraft boat? Ever heard, our seen it? It was made for Ace Hardware for only 3 years! Plus,a showroom condition 1999 Pontiac GrandPrixGTP, with a few mod's? It's because I cherish what others' agreeably find, "hohum!" I say, "Long live PlayfulGod!" That is all.

    Yeah bruh, it's all a matter of perspective. I'm not competing against the Jones's, so I don't care about the next BBB. Maybe you do, maybe someone else does. I subscribe to the, "oh, no shyte.....cool, well check out this classic!" It's all in how we view life, nothing more. If you're happy worth what you have, keep it. Of not, on worth the battle, right? I sent pg the Merc. He's had it for three days now. I have our to him until November. If you remember some of my very first posts, you'll see that I'm gunning for an Icarus-style modded rom named Thor! That's why I personally won't give up. Not for another year or so! We all got our priorities! I just want to See if mine is even obtainable! Love for you all though, no mater what!

    My battery life WAS awesome until the last firmware update. Now instead of squeezing out over 2 days strait, I've gotta charge it every night and at least one a day.
