read that as hordette_85, reminded me of a contestant on Wipeout last night, her name was Jenna Funkie, and she married a (presumably Chinese) guy with the last name of Ho, so she goes by the name of Jenna Funkie-Ho... I normally hate hyphenated last names, but how could you not use that one... it's GOLD, Jerry! GOLD!

Anything with similar specs to the Samsung S3 but a touch smaller? Must have microSD slot.

Isn't it a piece of @#$%? I thought it was hugely scaled back on specs, only 8Gb onboard etc?

Yeah, checking your link there...the screen res is way down, the CPU's are way down, internal memory down, smaller battery etc.

only 50 less pixels per square inch, CPU is faster, more ram, battery lasts longer while talking, except for on standby (it still has 19 days of standby battery though, not sure you need more than that; but a smaller phone will of course have/need a smaller battery), plus the newer processor is usually more efficient.

the only real downside is the built in storage.

Barely more res than my 3 year old "S" and not even HD. CPU is dual vs quad. I'll give you the battery being basically a push. And yes the storage...

Looks like Sony Xperia SP might be another option.

It's kind of in the middle of the S3/S4mini. Still hate that I have to choose between size and specs though.

the black guy who used to be an alcoholic (you know, the guy who made it rain zombies in the Big Spot), or the governor (who I think has entered the prison and is living in cell block A unbeknownst to the rest of them.

$45 for 1000 Canada wide minutes, unlimited text, visual voice/enhanced voicemail and 500mb of data (I only use 200-300mb). Got the Sony FWIW.

Plus $5 discount for first two months and all fee's waived.

Dollars are the current method of storing your economic time and labour. I hope you plan to turn those dollars into goods and services soon, because the the value of the dollars relative to the goods and services you buy, decreases every day.
