    Cell Phone Issues

    I've been looking all over FORT to see if this topic was anywhere, but I've been unable to find anything. I figured maybe someone else had questions/issues with cell phones that we could solve. So I started this thread.

    My issue:
    My cell phone case wore out. The faceplate wouldn't snap on anymore, or stay on in any manner. I doubt I'll be getting a new phone for a while, so I went on Amazon & ordered 2 new cases. They came today.

    Along with the cases I got some little pry tool, a Stylus, a Screen Protector, and an "Extreme Band". I put the Protector & the Case on & all's well. But I can't for the life of me figure out what the Extreme Band is.
    It's a little strip of Velcro. Just under 4" long & 3/4" wide. It apparently goes in a circle.
    It's way too short for a wrist band, even for my scrawny wrists, and not nearly long enough to circle the phone.

    I did a search online for How To Use a Extreme Band For Cell Phones. Nothing. I worded it differently about 4-5 times, but still nothing.
    After looking at the Packing Slip in with the cases, I noticed that the company it came from is Extremecases. That could account for the Extreme part, but no further information.

    Anyhow, does anyone know what the heck these things are for? And how/why to use one?

    Nice. Could be handy. The case is very slippery. But the back is totally smooth. No place or way at all to attach the thing.

    Could you use it to bundle cords (like a reusable tie - if you wrap it around, will it hold to itself)?
    your path is beautiful and crooked and just as it should be

    Yes, that would work. In fact, it would be quite handy for that. I kind of like that little holding strap though, if I could only figure out how to attach it.
    If not, cord bundler it is.

    This says it comes with a strong adhesive. Is there anything to peel away from it?

    Normally, stuff like that comes with plastic covering the adhesive side. You peel off the plastic and place the adhesive EXACTLY where you want it (no "do-overs").

    Apparently that isn't it. Looking at the magnified picture it has a hard base to stick on your phone. This doesn't. It's strictly a very flexible Velcro strip. Nothing to peel away or stay put. I suppose I could Super Glue the back of it to the back of the phone, but even then, it would be very awkward & unattractive. Not like the thing in the picture.

    I guess Cord Holder Strap it is. It will work quite nicely for that.
