    Thanks, Meso!

    I read through the posts! First off, thanks for finding the solution and sharing it with us! Although I already RMA'd my tablet, I'm gonna order backup cables anyway. I love this tablet and plan to keep it till I can get a tablet that is 5x the power for the same price. With your DIY, I probably can do it!

    Second, I was surprised how easy it seems to repair. Tablets are allegedly difficult, if not impossible. I'm glad for that.

    Well. I sent my tablet back to Asus on May 21 and still haven't got it back! Bastards! They made me go out and order a Surface 3 128GB LTE tablet. Once I get my Asus back, I'll be selling it.

    There's simply too much of the S3 to love: too much screen and too much euros...

    I live in Japan. We unfortunately didn't get the choice between LTE and WiFi. They only sell the WiFi version. We can get it from the Microsoft Store and pay outright. Or use Y!Mobile (Third-tier carrier part of Yahoo!Softbank) and pay around $50 a month for 128GB model and 1GB of data. I'm still on my iPhone 3GS plan (unlimited 3G data for around $44 a month). I put the SIM in a Lumia 636 and tether with that and I'm totally content.

    I finally got my RMA'd VivoTab Note 8 back! It only took them 5 weeks! Asus is the number one worst customer service! Now I'm gonna sell it!

    Worst depot service in the US IMO.

    Right up there with Lenovo if we are to believe our own posters.
