    Do NOT lock the screen with a) a PASSWORD or b) a PATTERN. You WILL forget them, if you must use a password then write it down somewhere safe. Use a pattern only if you are determined to go through the stress of trying to reset the device to factory default setting! :eek:

    Do not:

    Let your dog use it as a chew toy
    Use it as a step stool
    Smash it with a hammer
    Use it as a coaster for your coffee
    Fold it in half when you are done reading an eBook

    And don't fill it full of apps, or customise the home launcher, and do learn to read Chinese as it will do a factory reset overnight and you'll lose everything!

    Not unless it's a Pantech Element. Yes... it's waterproof.

    It's my redheaded step child, but I love it.

    Also don't install "Cat Toys app" and leave it on table while you go potty. Good thing laundry basket was next to table. Tablet was saved! 4 cats fighting over who can sit in laundry basket for next round of cat toys playtime is not pretty sight to behold!
