My Pixel 4 had some kind of water or sweat damage or something because it had screen issues and backlight issues for probably close to a year lol. Couldn't see about 1/10th of the screen on the left. Wasn't a massive thing, I learned to live with it and decided to just move on with my life. Well then the other day the middle of my screen stopped being responsive top to bottom. Took multiple taps to get it to work.

Was waiting for them to finally announce the Pixel 6 to see if the 5A would drop in price or anything, and luckily the phone broke just in time. Ended up getting a 5A with insurance included for a total of $360, which saved me about $230 in the long run. Don't need the bells and whistles of the 6, I just stopped caring about cell phones once they kind of hit their ceilings. Battery life is great, and that's really what I care about the most.

This phone rocks! Forgot what it's like to be able to see your entire screen LOL

Looking to get a Apple watch for my mom's birthday, to pair with her phone. But not sure which version to get. Btw, will it need to be added as a new line to her Verizon bill? Seems like if you try to get one through Verizon they want to add it as a new or updated line

well they are a cellular company so just like tablets, they will want to sell you a watch with a cellular plan as that is where they make their money, not in device sales. You only really need the line if you 1) want to use the watch outside of bluetooth range of the phone and 2) want to finance the price of the watch on the line.

So I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max. I do NOT have a PC or Mac to be able to sync music to it (I replaced my MacBook with a new iPad Pro 12.9 a couple weeks ago). When I buy vinyl albums, sometimes they come with a code for being able to download the album digitally as well. How can I get those playable in the Apple Music app? I haven’t downloaded them yet, but I assume they go into the FILES app.

Need a computer, or if you can download them from iTunes app. I know digital movie codes can be redeemed at multiple places.
