    Comparison of Glass screen protectors?

    Ok, I am not fond of screen protectors, and to be honest, I have not used one for more than about a week at a time - I get annoyed, crap under screen, bubbles, not straight, edges peel, etc. So I end up with no protector. Is the glass on the new phone 6 plus, better same, worse? If I did start...

    My sisters iPhone 4s seems to have semi-died

    She is a member here, but for reasons alien to me, she won't post this herself. I don't have all the details, BUT, no Siri, cannot connect to wifi in her home, sporadic outages with texts, no ringer (or notification on texts). And some other issues/problems - she claims it was never dropped...

    Metal cases....

    I bought a metal (aluminum) case from one of the cheapo sites - meritline, I have always my home printer ink from them and it has always been flawless, I have purchased one or 2 junk items from them in the past - headphonse mostly, for my kids and they have worked well too. So, for $8 I got a...

    Adapters - limitations?

    I ordered (as some here know) the 8 to 30 pin after market adapters. So far, 1 works for charging ONLY. And the other does not work at all. So, off to the online Apple store I go to see exactly what they are supposed to do, and then off to ebay and Amazon I go to see what miracle claims...

    unlocking for possible sale, iPhone 4

    Apologies if this has been asked/answered before. I have and use an iPhone 5. I placed an ad for my iPhone 4 and got several nibbles, but no sale. Nearly everyone wants the phone unlocked, it's presently an AT&T phone. So, since the 4 is mine, not under contract, etc. what is the unlock...

    Lightning Adapters from Pacific Rim?

    I don't want to say Asia, too big, or The Orient, too biased/prejudiced, or just Hong Kong as I am sure they are coming for several places. Anyway, sorry for the aside, it appears that a few vendors on e-bay have them now (so they claim) with the stubby going for as low as about $15 and the...

    Worth the upgrade....

    Ok, so I am now eligible to upgrade, I have the 4, not 4s. It's working fine, but sometimes it is near/at capacity (8gb model). Should I upgrade now, or wait say until the next version - not meaning to be a pest on this, rather, soliciting input. I am leaning to upgrade. If I do upgrade...

    iOS 5 on iPhone 4

    I am digging it so far. I like the swipe on notification taking me directly to text. I like the shortcut to camera. I am sure to discover other things that work well in this edition. Good stuff (as my kid's soccer coach says).

    Had my iPhone 4 replaced at Apple Store today

    Hi, they had me on record for an earlier problem that began replicating itself lately. I was out of warranty by about 1 month. I had wanted to purchase (3rd party) Apple care for year 2, but got laid off in July, so question, what would happen if I purchased Apple care and tried to use it now...

    iPad 1 at $350 (factory refurb) or iPad 2 at $500

    Base model discussion only. My wife has the basic unit. I don't see myself (or my daughter(s)) who we are considering these things for - using all the bells and whistles. I do like the ability to attach to a TV though - is that a peripheral device that could be obtained for the iPad 1...

    Amazon MP3 sale - Not sure if this belongs here, apologies in advance if I screwed up

    Amazon MP3s has several decent albums for $5 and a few top sellers of this year (today, 24 Dec only) for $3.99. I purchased Exile on Main Street 2010 remix/cleaned up (whatever) for $1.99 and London Calling for $5. They get downloaded directly to my iTunes on my computer. There is a $2...

    It's only 99 cents, but....

    Let's say someone (who shall remain nameless) bought his wife a game off iTunes, gifted it, to be printed, and the printer did not print and he exited out of iTunes. Would the person who shall remain nameless be up poop creek? And, out 99 cents?

    Cannot login to ebay from my iPhone, any reason why?

    Ok, I must have taken a moron pill or something? I do not have the ebay app (is there an ebay app?), I am trying to get to ebay login (in fact I do get to that screen via the phone's safari browser. I know my screen name and password - as I listed a few items of crap that I want to sell - to...

    Any thoughts on iPad prices going down soon?

    Hi, I am trying to get one for my wife for Christmas. But, like they are for nearly everyone, funds are limited. I know there are some hit or miss ways to save a few bucks here and there - some more difficult than others, but with so many vendors now, the holidays right around the corner...

    Performing a reset to re-engage Bluetooth

    I am deaf, and use 3 bluetooth devices to hear better (my hearing aids are blue tooth compatible with a product called an iCom). Anyway, my iPhone (circa July 2010), has worked flawlessly - from purchase time to this past Saturday, I was having trouble with listening to music. I always...

    Made a Converting to MP3 MESS

    Hi, I have a car that plays MP3s off a cd. I also have XM radio. I want to get rid of XM as most of what I listen to (read hear) I already have on my iPhone/iTunes. XM also loses signal about 10 times a day every day, each way to and from my office. So, I learned that could burn these...

    Bumpers - different brands, prices etc.

    Ok, I have and use the Apple bumper. It's fine. I have no glass protectors (and may not get any - TBD). I see that there is a casemate bumper - Hula And a (what I feel is way over priced bumper on SGP) - but it comes with screen and back protectors. This one is a dual material product -...
