Columbia that happened to my phone as well, cost me $100. I bought an otter box and it works great but I got a sweet iPhone speaker thing for Christmas and the otter box prevents the phone from connecting to the speakers properly.

It's so much fun. It's not super hard though - you can beat the whole game in a week or so.

I went to the Apple store and they don't replace the glass on the 4 series. Seemingly, I could have gone grey market and got it replaced for $100, with an uncertain end result down the road....Apple sold me a brand new one for $150 and restored all of my apps, photos and music (through iCloud) in 25 minutes. I just had to re-key my stored passwords.

Not the worst possible outcome.

I love it. I really do. Siri is my best friend and I seriously use it for just about everything.

MailEnhancer if you're jailbroken. Adds cool stuff like an "Unread" filter, inbox coloring, quiet times so you don't receive e-mails when you're asleep, etc. Stuff that Apple should have already included in the Mail app to begin with.

I actually thought I'd have no use for Siri, but I use it every day for the Alarm setting.

Yeah I think that's by far my favorite of the with friends games now. I've crushed people a few times and had one game where I lost by 4, I was pissed.

Beerman and shad: what powerup do you use in
SWF? My first game I was in a tremendous hole, but pulled within 30 points at the end because I didn't use my free powerup in the first two rounds

Soundhound is good for ID'ing songs and will follow along and display lyrics. Song recognition seems pretty good, even acknowledging songs in a noisy area. Once it recognizes the song, it will show artist, song title, album, and secondary stuff like option to buy on itunes or amazon. Database seems pretty deep. It claims over 10,000,000 songs. Was actually surprised that groups like Bad Brains, Jawbox, and Pegboy were included. I know some of the older Verizon phones had this installed as an option so you can buy ringtones, but this seems to be the most detailed version that I've seen.

It's free, but there's also a paid version. Not sure how much of an upgrade it would actually be. More songs, as if 10,000,000 weren't enough?

Edit: Soundhound does not follow along with the lyrics, but it does display them. I thought it did the other day but I just tried it and it started at the beginning of the song.

Overall, what does it do?
Song title, artist, album, download on iTunes option, bookmark the song as a favorite, share that you're listening to it on Facebook, lyrics, the option to listen to the song on youtube, download a ringtone from iTunes, lists tourdates from that artist, lists similiar artists, lists song's album appearances (i.e. soundtrack, compilations, etc.), and people who have mentioned the title or artist on Twitter.

For those of us who missed out on the 4s by a few months and still wanted to toy around with voice recognition software for your phone, download Vlingo.

Siri is very cool but still needs a tone of tweaking. I still use it daily though.

Usually just scramble, even though I've never found it to help that much. Occasionally I'll go with freeze, sometimes I see a few good things near the end and the extra time helps.

Freeze all day every day. That other powerup (that highlights where the words are) just distracts and bothers me

Great game....I completed all of the upgrades and can't really get motivated to unlock all of the other characters.

Let me just say, I have no clue how you get some of those objectives. I have completed every objective except like the last five. 10,000,000 points in a round? Oh ok
