  1. I’m loving the use of what looks to be masking tape.

  5. It is masking tape, duck tape leaves a residue behind in my pocket.

  7. Don’t carry that thing through an airport security checkpoint! Looks like a potential IED to me.

  9. LOL @ Garrison, that does look like a brick of C-4 on the back of it. BE AFRAID!! DO NOT CALL THAT GUY!

  11. Battery life does suck on those HTC Incredibles…maybe a day’s use.

  13. What don’t you color the tape in with a permanent marker so it doesn’t look like such a piece-o-chit!

  17. I’d use gaffer tape. The adhesive doesn’t run, is heat-resistant, the tape molds nicely around curves and has a nice cloth finish. I used it to make a scratch protector wrap for my Epic.

  19. Looks like BS to me. Especially since those phones have an internal antenna that cant break. That ‘antenna’ is actually a pen, and I would bet that is no battery taped to the back either.

  21. OP here, It’s not BS. The pins going to the board on the phone broke off due to the fact that I kept taking the cover off. Hint, the rear cover has the antenna inside it. the phone has two little pins that connect to the case. I don’t know how you figure that the “new” antenna is a pen, it’s a flat rubber ducky dipole antenna.

  23. Well he never said if it worked or not after the “upgrade” he added. I was surprised to see nobody has pointed that out already.
