If someone wants to upgrade from a stupid phone, this looks like a deal.

Contract is not up, I will more than likely just pay for a month or so of service and if I stay longer than 3 months or so I will cancel my contract and pay the crazy fee that is due for breaking my contract. The guy up at ATT told me to unlock my phone, I forget the name of the app or site he told me to use. Hopefully he is there tomorrow otherwise I will be SOL. I was also thinking of letting my parents use this phone and changing the number so I do not get any unwanted calls going to them. I do most of my stuff via email, but since I am going to be the General Manager of the shop I thought it would be nice to be able to take my phone down there and use it on the TelMex system. Oh well, I will keep on looking, that's what I get for waiting so long

Oh yeah on YT it seems you have to pay like $30 to get it unlocked or I can figure out how to root it and install galaxsim on it. Oh well too much more my little brain, I might just buy another phone while down there instead.

It was easy, all I had to do was call ATT and ask them to unlock it, they asked why I wanted it unlocked and mentioned I was traveling abroad and voila I was texted the unlock code. Sometimes honesty and being upfront is the best policy

Your apps/contacts you can set to auto install/update. Its a feature of android. You just have to make sure you have the settings set for it.

menu > system settings > accounts > google > click your google account > check desired boxes

Awesome thanks

But another part of the problem is that when I run Cyanogen mod 10.1.2, I dont have to google play store. If i restore the play store and play store services, the app doesnt want to open at all and immediately closes with no error message.

Edit:

My bad for being a total idiot, figured out issue. Sorry for wasting your time.

Fapping will be better now since I no longer have to see my reflection from being 2 feet away from the computer screen or tablet.
