    Downloading movies on the X

    Guess I should have asked my son first. He taught me what you just told me about Netflix :-)

    Return policy on iPhone?

    Just wondering if anybody knows the return policy. I bought the X 8 days ago and I just simply don’t like the narrow or screen. Ideally I’d like to turn it in and go with an 8+. Does anybody know if they will allow that over a week out?

    iPhone X, features,gestures you would change

    I wish the screen was bigger. I came from a 6+ which I loved and the salesman talked me into the ask because the screen was bigger, and I like to watch videos and TV on it. I should have checked, because what he didn’t tell me was it’s a little longer but it is narrower, which I don’t like...

    Downloading movies on the X

    Can anyone suggest a place other than the iTunes store to get movies? I’m getting ready to do some long plane trips and I have the 256 gig iPhone X and I’d like to download a few movies. Not looking to get freebies necessarily, but damn, 13 bucks for a movie from iTunes is more than I’m willing...

    X early impressions

    This forum has taught me a lot, so I wanted to contribute an uneducated review :) My 6+ started having issues, so I went on Monday to get a new phone. My intention was a 7+ or 8, but ended up with a 256 X. Apple pricing always gets me- they had a 7, but for not much more you can get the X, so X...

    Face ID Question

    I guess that's why I wasn't understanding- The cost of my phone was a lot of money to me, and I use it to Ron all aspects of my life, so I guess I have trained myself to have it in my hand or my pocket anytime I am out of the house. Always. Even in my office it's in my pocket unless I'm...

    Face ID Question

    With all due respect, that still doesn't answer my question…

    Camera ripples

    I have not tried a hard reset. Next time it happens I will try that.

    Camera ripples

    Recently when I turn on the camera and look at the screen the picture has waves in it, like ripples going across water. If I take a picture it will be blurry, if I do a video it will have the ripples in it. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it doesn't. Sunday I was doing a live video on...

    Face ID Question

    I think everybody has private information on their phones. But mine is either in my hand or my pocket or the console of my car. I don't see how anybody could get any information out of my phone, even unlocked.

    Face ID Question

    Question – why do we need this? Why do we have to lock our phones? I never lock mine.

    My thoughts on the new devices

    Yeah, I could not care less about the face recognition either. I never lock my phone in the first place. Don't need animated emojis either. I get impressed by advances in physical durability and kind of like real improvements in battery life – neither of which is really here.

    My thoughts on the new devices

    I still have a 6+ for personal use, and another on my business line. In my opinion, that one represents a big leap forward because of the size. both of mine work great, but if the eight or the X would have had some huge advancement I wanted, I would have gone for it- namely, a revolutionary...

    My thoughts on the new devices

    I heard that but I bought a 6+ anyway. Then, I bought another one for my business line. I am certainly not gentle with them, but I have never seen any way they could bend short of putting it half off the edge of the table and forcing down. My own actual experience leads me to believe that the...
