lookin' good

Sigh...Hating eBay right now.

I knuckled under and purchased the Audiovox XV6600WOC. The seller described it as "New; never opened" in the metadata top lines, and "used 2 months; like new" in the description.

It got here--scuffed and scratched on the slider; annoying, but livable--but then I went to charge it and found that the adapter was cracked in such a way that it would not mate with the receptacle firmly.

Needless to say, I've contacted the seller asking for a refund.

Damn Verizon for sticking to their guns on requiring a data plan that I know I don't need or want.
