Tonight comcast had a major outage here in Pearland Texas. The outage started around 7PM Friday Dec 5th 2009, and of this posting ( 12:19 AM Dec 6th Saturday ) Service was still not restored. Granted today we had snow, which is rare in Houston ( happends only once a year if at all ). But still Snow shouldn't affect Comcast Service. So I figured out how to tether my computer onto my Sony Xperia X1i and use my unlimited AT&T data connection to get online and keep working. However I was very surprized with the speed I got from AT&T.

So I got out some sand paper, and some metal polish creme, to take my battery cover from dull black, to a near perfect mirrored chrome finish. I have included before and after shots along with instructions for those who might want to try this on their phone.

Some of you might be wondering why I went with the Sony Xperia, especially a used one. Read on for more details
