    Got a like new Classic for $60 coming in a day or two. Snagged a case and Qi charger too. If my main uses are

    *Web browsing
    *Email (Gmail) and work (imap)
    *Facebook, Twitter , LinkedIn
    *Youtube, Netflix, Pandora

    Are apps for above still working or will work via web browser? Also for the uses above should I be ok for awhile with the Classic? I have to have the phone call, texting and email but I figured that stuff will be non issue. Also if you get a apk that happens to work fine is there any reason it would stop working altogether unless the company kills off support all together?

    Thanks in advance

    Use Android LinkedIn and Android Facebook Lite / Messenger Lite.

    Use SuperTube and Blaq (native apps) instead of YouTube and Twitter.

    An older version of Android Netflix will still work (v3.16.3).

    Any app could stop working at any time.

    Browser is still stumbling along, and Gmail works fine in the HUB.

    Arrived. Gmail was added with no issues which I expected. Still gotta add my work account tomorrow. Facebook app, Linkedin and Twitter are all more then sufficient for me. I grabbed a Netflix apk which worked. Would like to find a good Youtube solution for uploading as well as viewing. Also tryying to find a Chase bank apk app for my online banking. If I can get that I should be set.

    OK so issue. Everything is working except picture messages (mms). I use Cricket Wireless and was able to get data working after entering basic apn settings. Everywhere online is saying to put in mms settings but. I can't find that anywhere or in the main apn settings. Any help? Much appreciated

    The Classic supports Qi Charging?

    If you want Android apps, try using F-Droid instead of all that Google workaround stuff. F-Droid is a 100% free open source "app store". All apps work without any google services. I love using OSMand from F-Droid for offline GPS navigation.

    As far as MMS, take it to your carrier and they will probably be able to fix it.

    For main apn settings go to hub > setting > text messages > advanced

    Btw. for YouTube i use FastTube. It's native and has some really great features, such as preloading videos. However I don't know whether one can upload videos. Never done so.
