  1. You constantly assume people are making arguments and statements where there are none, and are also an offender of the accusation you made.
  2. Thanks for showing up and proving once again that you will turn every thread into a shit show instead of just talking about things.
  3. Oscar, the more you learn about this "problem" the dumber you're going to feel.
  4. Duplicate thread, closing this one. See here:
  5. Well said. So aim to die old and broke, in a well used, busted up shell.
  6. I find it odd that instead of looking at it and expressing it as a positive, you position it as a cure for a shitty life. Perspective is important.
  7. Can it just be a hobby without being a judgment of mental state? Is dicking around with bikes any different? You can also potentially be making/saving money doing things that way, as well as getting something customized to your choices.
  8. Well, the lack of SIM would fuck you up, of course. I have never heard of a problem swapping them around until now. If you don't need the extended LTE coverage, the prepaid would probably save you a lot. We're at $85 with two devices and 15GB per device. Obviously she only needs basic service which is like $20.
  9. Prepaid saves a lot, do you need postpaid extras (larger roaming area)? And are you sure you can't just slap the SIM into any phone? I change phones willy-nilly and Verizon doesn't need to know, just move the SIM.
  10. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Prepaid-Verizon-E-Talk-Flip-Phone-4G-LTE-2-8-OVGM-dislpay-2-MP-camera-1500-mAh/283646400089?_trkparms=aid%3D555021%26algo%3DPL.SIMRVI%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20190711100440%26meid%3D07192579854c4c2ba84930e060cb46fe%26pid%3D100752%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpf%26sd%3D383250943303%26itm%3D283646400089%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100752.m1982 Happened to be talking to a Verizon person today, confirmed that E Talk thing does VoLTE.
  11. I don't know anyone with a two door.
  12. Mandatory $999 dealer doc and prep fee. $1k financing kickback. $3k extended warranty. Nobody lets vehicles sit on the lot. And for some reason, the people who get and upload pics are never the same ones that do the rest of the listing. So anything new here goes up with a stock photo "and real pics coming soon."
  13. The reason they are saying that is that the CDMA network is being shut down. You need a VoLTE phone. Anyone using older phones will find themselves having more and more call problems, then it just won't work. I can't help you on specific devices, I just don't know.
  14. You need to make sure it specifically supports VoLTE. That's the part that Verizon is going to change soon. Some phones, like the iPhone 5s, do LTE data but not voice over LTE.
  15. It's interesting what each of us become aware of, and others don't. I don't see any ads, these services are just talked about in car/Jeep places online. But there are posts about people in politics who I've never seen and have no clue who they are.
  16. You didn't get an instant quote? I ran mine through there and they immediately told me how much. (Like $31k I think, but doesn't account for all the add-ons at all.)
  17. Doing my own PDI and plastic/paper removal was a real treat. You might have noticed I'm less anal about what happens to the Jeep after that though... But yes, they are.
  18. Sure, but two quotes is always better. You can at least show it to the KBB people if they try to scam you. Holy shit, I had no idea how close you are to Kiryas Joel. Have you been through there?? Would you get a token pass? The BMW dealer that's exactly 30.2 miles from you is still in NY, a one-party consent law. If you go there, you can record this without telling anyone.
  19. Dave, is single-party recording allowed in your area? If so, recording it on the Apple Watch could be fun. I record a lot of stuff on the Watch, like all my RV fiascos.
  20. I tried to run the VIN on vroom.com and it won't finalize the quote. You should try it. Maybe my ad blockers or something like that are interfering with it. Dunno.
  21. All such sites expect you to have lied about condition, and to be able to nit-pick it down 10%. You will bring something in that they've never seen before, ever. Showroom quality, perfectly clean. I have no idea if they are even trained to deal with that, LOL.
  22. You can get a lot of online quotes without them seeing it. Carmax and KBB are options. Right now, Vroom.com is in startup mode and is said to be overpaying for cars by 10%. It's worth 90 seconds to find out. I would have run it myself if I knew your VIN.
  23. Jesus. I just recommended the MSF class to someone who wants to ride. I listed the things he'd learn, and when I got to shifting... "Oh, bikes don't have automatic transmissions?" I did tell him an NC700 might be his thing.
  24. I might be more inclined to tell them about the chain and sprocket, and all the time, as well as potential future problems, and ask how they suggest they make up for it. Or possibly suggest that they just send me extra parts (more chains and sprockets) which costs them much less than cash. And in most companies, and employee can just send you parts on their own accord (or at least, I've had that happen a few times).
  25. PM an address, I don't think I have your info saved. We also have Blazing Saddles on Bluray (the whole Mel Brooks library actually). I guess I should rip that, we gave away the BR player years ago.
