More Phone Hackery

As I feared, the antenna support on my phone was not destined to last, it broke completely off shortly after the last post. What I did next is best shown through pictures:

dscn2012dscn2015The material is “JB Stick Weld” epoxy putty. So far it seems quite secure, reception is normal. I don’t want to risk breaking it again so I don’t plan on keeping it in my pocket all the time like before, but I think this fix will hold well.

It’s ugly, I know. I enjoy the feeling of having really made the phone uniquely mine by all this homespun repair work– it’s a tiny rebellion against throw-away culture.
