    changing channels?

    i like to go to youtube and play music. when i put this thing in my shirt pocket, when moving around, it hits fabric and every once in awhile it goes back to the previous screen or hits a new video.

    any idea how i can keep it where i want it and not have the screen be so sensitive? it's annoying.

    i've tried it with the screen facing in and out.

    i'm also way high so i may be missing something simple.

    What you're missing is that YouTube is designed for you to watch, not just listen to. And why the fuck is your phone in your shirt pocket? Are you 87 years old?

    If it's an iPhone, the lock button is on top right.

    ok so with pandora, i can hit the on/off button and it keeps playing. with youtube, it just turns off.

    odd but i've learned to accept these things.

    i always remind myself where we were in the 70s and 80s and i'm way happy with new teck. waaaaay.

    If you lock the screen, YouTube shuts off

    My mom just called me from the Verizon store. She's getting the Galaxy Note 3. Looks like I'll be spending the next month playing tech support. :facepalm:
