    For this very reason I go out of my way to post videos to youtube and embed them here. Higher compatibility plus view statistics, and it is an additional channel with which to bring people in.

    I'm currently working with the Tapatalk team to get us on the proper Tapatalk versions.

    I really need an iOS device so I can testflight the new binary they sent me. Maybe I'll grab one up from Xfinity Mobile.

    But it's possible Tapatalk just doesn't support embedded videos like this.

    @CJR238 lol wtf, we pay for Tapatalk so you guys don't have to! :shifty:

    After the trouble you had last time with the 2017 raffle? I would grab a cheap used one, maybe one from the member classifieds can be bought for cheap with RDF funding?

    What? I never said I was raffling it off, lol. I'd never raffle off a phone again.

    But I don't mind selling them - I've sold at least 5 in the past 6 months~ including one a couple days ago, and actually have another Note9 enroute to me now that I'll be listing probably Thursday.

    Also no I won't use RDF funding for that kind of thing even though technically it would be used strictly for RDF stuff. Once the RDFGS 2.0 proposal is out certain things will have to be purchased with RDFGS 2.0 funding but that's a different story.

    Got it. Yeah, for some reason I had thought the cause for that whole phone raffle complaint was about the phone being locked into Xfinity or something, but maybe I just misunderstood. So are you able to get the phones from them on contract, cancel, and keep them for the sweet discounted price or something?

    No, you need to keep the contract going else they get blacklisted. His situation was completely different though. Xfinity Mobile screwed up.

    But you can use Xfinity Mobile devices on any Xfinity Mobile account, regardless. Check out my for sale threads for details on all this, have details on how to do it.

    They keep asking me to upgrade to pay more. I did that previously before they updated or changed.
