    I’ve got a 6. If I may ask, where’d you do that and what was the cost?

    Jeez.My phone is in a chest pocket,I dont go "digging" through my backpack.Pretty dumb exaggeration as most would not have it buried in their pack.Second,I can just talk to my phone and give commands while its in my pocket.No need to pull it out except to take pics.This isnt knew technology either.

    I did the 5 myself. It wasn't too bad. But I'm used to wrenching on vehicles and other contraptions with engines. The phone was a different experience. Stuff is beyond small.

    I used a service called iCracked on our current phones. Read an article about them in the WSJ and the review was favorable. I think it was $75 each phone? One phone was cheaper because I already had a battery for it that I bought on my own. Anyways, guy was cool. Came to the house and was chatty. Gave us a bunch of tips and settings to help with battery life and phone performance.

    Couldn't agree more. Put the damn phone away when you're skiing, turn the damn thing off. Check for work related calls only when you take a break and only if you have to. Life is too short, ski season is way too short to be connected to a device while you're on the mountain. For me, the same goes with earplugs and music-would never ski that way.

    I mostly agree, but it depends on the individual's situation. Every once in awhile I'll bag off work early for night turns. Say starting around 3. In my profession I pretty much need to be available 7AM to 7PM M-F. So, firing off a quick email or taking a call on the chair happens. Sorry if it bothers people, but I'm not ducking in the lodge to do those tasks if I don't have to

    I use my phone to track my vertical and mileage...but typically I'll start the GPS app before I load the lift and then rarely take my phone out of my pocket unless I need to communicate with someone to meet for lunch or something like that. I do find it annoying when people use their phone nonstop on the chair, but if it is work related I can understand.
