A few days ago, Sun called me. I didn’t have the Jawbone paired, so I just answered on the RAZR V3 itself. The first thing she did was sneeze, right into the receiver of her work phone, after which her voice took on a buzzing quality. From the sound, it was clear that the phone’s ear speaker had done something strange. Fearing the worst, I tried rebooting it to make sure it wasn’t some temporary condition, but there was no fix to be had. Just to be very clear:
My wife’s sneeze broke my phone’s speaker.
The phone is about 3 years old, so I’m happy to write it off as the inevitable failure of temporary technology, but “you would think” that a phone shouldn’t be allowed to send a sound loud enough to blow out its own speaker.
Oh well. I can still use it with the headset, and I was waiting for an excuse to get a new phone anyway.

Get that woman some cold meds, dude!
I am cautiously hopeful about the G1, but T-Mobile’s coverage map is a colorful apology to the country, so I’d need it to work with AT&T. If my plan to abuse your G1 is successful, then it’s just a matter of what the price of an unlocked G1 would be.
