  1. I can't be sure of their motivation, but I believe it's about security, in case the database of this forum gets leaked or something else happens, their personal data are less likely to be part of it.
  2. One other thing that complicates manufacturing of a physical keyboard phone: Maintaining different layouts, QWERTY, QWERTZ, AZERTY, etc. Even juggernauts like Samsung don't want this level of complexity, because not enough people want PKB in the first place. *Sigh*
  3. And it's from the future! at least for folks in the Americas.
  4. Given how tight it fits in the shell, yes breaking something is more likely. However, when a piece like this is soldered properly, it is more likely to peal the contact from the circuit board than break from the solder. On your picture we can see all three contacts on the circuit board pretty much intact. Knowing enough about how radio works (not an engineer) you can have too much solder and induce other problems as well, so it's fine balance.
  5. Wow... I suspected something like this. I'm not sure why there's glue for those contacts on the board, but they should be soldered as well. To me this means soldering wasn't great (or non existent!) to begin with and will induce all sorts of noise for cellular and wifi signal inside the phone to begin with. This will definitely cause all sort of connectivity issues and explains why some was never able to use it properly with their provider or wifi and others could.
  6. I believe you have the same issue that I ran into. There is a somewhat thick plastic over those buttons (or tack switches) on the frame behind those buttons, this plastic is adjusting the height so that outside buttons can press on those the tack switches. For me, the black plastic is gone for the both volume buttons and I destroyed the camera button to the point that it is unusable 😞. I was able to put two layers of electrical tape over these (one layer was enough, but a bit too thin). This hack works, but now I have to press them harder to make them work. One precaution I can
  7. I am no longer sure for which one, but there are two microphones, one at the bottom and one on the back, near the camera. This rubber is for one of the two.
  8. It could also be contacts for a I²C bus...
  9. Hmmm, I hope it's just that the tracking number you received is not correct, for me the destination was correct. Maybe @Casey could shed some light on this ?
  10. I ordered mine on April 14 and received it on the 20th. It was delivered by FedEx to Canada. Did you get a tracking number ?
  11. Hi @Casey, If I may... I too would like to order a new battery for the Pro1, I replied a few days ago after a few months from my initial inquiry. Ticket ID #17277. Thank you in advance.
  12. Interesting indeed. I have something that maybe related to share, I wasn't sure what to think of it before... For a while I'm now using magnetic USB C connector and cable and since then I did not have any charging issue on both my Pro1 and my Pro1X. By the number of contacts, I expect only USB 2.0 signaling is supported (just like the included charger). I am not sure what is really different except that connection is generally instant rather than relatively slow to reach all contacts.
  13. Great information here. I wish I had avoided the quick charge on my Pro1... I was wondering if anyone confirmed that the battery in the Pro1X is the same as in the Pro1 ? I wish to order it from IG, if it fits. I was also wondering if someone has ordered and received it lately ?
  14. Interesting indeed, but what's puzzling to me is how much the OS is managing charging nowadays... I feel it should be less, but huh... progress I guess...
