I like Amsoil. Been using it for 10 years or more now.

The order was for 10 quarts of 0w20, oil filter for a Yaris and FRS, 48 ounces of DOT 3/4 brakefluid, and two bottles of MTF.

PFi has been great (omg real customer service from a telcom, it's surreal) but I'm averaging ~$47/month with ~2.5GB of data and my phone call quality has been crap. I've missed about 40% of the job interview calls I've scheduled over the past few months and have had to call them back after staring at my phone waiting for it to ring and seeing the 'missed call' notification pop up with zero warning.

Pretty sure it's because Google rings my 'gmail' on whatever computer I was last using before it rings my phone. Happened to me just now when my gf called, computer rings, phone's got nothing, fingers crossed it rings the phone before it goes to voicemail.

I caved and got a pixel 2. Best buy had a promotion on-line that brought it down to a slightly more palatable, so I went with it. The dongle sucks balls and I hate BT headphones. Just finding out that not all USB Type C head phones will work (so much for "universal"), so ya...way to go, get rid of a universally used, tried and true standard to push a new "standard" that no body wants to support... I hate technology sometimes

I've had both AT&T and Verizon in the past, and although I miss the coverage at times (like having 4G LTE while camping in the woods lol), Fi has got me covered 90% of the time. Customer service is the main factor for me. Verizon has been unimpressive and I plain refuse to use AT&T since they outright lied to my face on more than one occasion.

I would agree about how annoying the "gmail" ringing is. I think you can disable it somewhere. I would have a similar delay, although not to that extent, probably a couple of rings or so before it gets forwarded to my phone. I do use it though (my work uses voip phones, so i actually don't have a physical phone on my desk and have to use a head set), so I don't mind the feature.

I regret getting a Note8, got it for $450 w/ hella stacking.
The USB-C port doesn't recognize the OTG dongle or GearVR but it can charge and be read by the PC.

Cool. Good to know.

I also PM'd Gruppe-S to see if they stock/sell non-twin parts since I got my Flex Z for the FR-S from them.

Evasive is one of the biggest distributers on the West Coast outside Turn14. They're legit.
