1. I love making stuff last forever. There’s something so rewarding about it. I just crossed the 4-year mark with my phone.

  2. I would never think to reset my phone to give it new life. Unfortunately for me, my last phone completely died and I had to get a new one. It’s crazy how expensive new phones are and I have no idea how and why people pay full price for phones, especially right after they are released.

  3. My phone will be 2 years old next month and the touch screen just started to not work. It works sometimes, but not all the time and the phone only rings about half the time when I get calls. I think they are programmed to stop working at 24 months. I would try the reset thing, but we can’t use Ting or Republic Wireless where we live, so if we have to keep our expensive plan, at least I’ll get the free phone that comes with it. That’s awesome that you tricked your phone into thinking it’s new again.

  4. Good job saving some $$ on phone costs. I still have my galaxy 3 about 2.5 years old, if I’m not mistaken. I recently posted an article listing all the things I’ve owned for 10 years. I hope my phone can last at least 5, and ill get the Samsung 6 at that point in time. Good luck.

  5. Brilliant!

    That said, I consistently lose parts of your posts because the images spill over and block parts of your first couple paragraphs.

    I don’t know if this is a display issue on my part, but you may want to double-check the size of/resize images you’re posting.
