    2017 Apple iPhone X Live Event Discussion

    I am still using my 6 plus 64mb model. The battery is sometimes a bit wonky. Have had it since Nov of whenever it was released. The kids and my wife have 6s or 6s plus. None of us were particularly impressed with the new phones. Frankly I am mostly disappointed. Get a new phone that really...

    Comparison of Glass screen protectors?

    Thanks - I admit, if I could stroll into my local best buy, get them to match the price on Amazon, and perform the install while I waited, I could certainly give it a go.

    Track your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus shipments here

    No I did not mean it that way. I assumed that if mine was ordered about 3 weeks ago, and it was expected in another 2 weeks, it would indicate that it shipped from China, but if they had/have stock in TX or CA or wherever, it makes me wonder why there was a delay of any significance.

    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...

    Go figure, I just received a message from ATT - it shipped from Ft Worth Texas today. How the heck? And why Texas?

    Track your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus shipments here

    Well, I have not been that lucky. Ordered a grey 64 6 plus on 11/19. They claimed a 4 to 6 week delay in shipping, backlog I guess. ATT is the carrier. So far, no luck at all in that date window (12/19 to 12/31) changing at all. DC area. Purchased from a local dealer - not ATT, not Apple...

    Heading to Italy in July

    Thanks - another great idea - and like the CSI shows disposable - it's funny, disposable phones a huge industry! If we go this route, could still do WIFI in country with the ATT iPhones yes?

    Excellent - and any issues with texts - traveling with 2 teen age girls!

    Heading to Italy in July

    Thanks will give that a very strong look. This will allow them to function only locally - in country so to speak? Or would people from the US be able to call/text whatever - and the cost won't give the wallet a blowout? What do you think about turning on an international accout via ATT, and...

    Heading to Italy in July

    Have 3 phones on an ATT family plan - what to do? Trying to not break the bank over a phone - but momma is a worrywart. Thanks!

    Element Silver Sector 5 Pix

    I went Burgandy, Gold, Red. I removed the silver things that came with my fake case, and now it's slightly loose. I was going to put the black ones on, but if they have issues adhereing, I'd be back to square one, so I am trying these first. And (supposedly) today only 40% off with a code...

    My sisters iPhone 4s seems to have semi-died

    Now it appears Apple is sending her a replacement. I don't think she was able to back up though. Sent using iCafe app

    My sisters iPhone 4s seems to have semi-died

    Well she is giving up. Her words no more I things for me! It's tough to reason when she won't listen to it. Her issue I think is that the nearest Apple store is 2 hrs away. Of course she's spent that already getting nowhere. She said Apple chat disconnected her. I wish she'd post the other...

    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...

    Element Silver Sector 5 Pix

    Absolutely understand, and expected that - re:signal degradation. The fake 4 had none - as they (whoever made it) used a nylon or whatever the material was just as Element did - once they discovered the issue. The new case is actually great, it's wider than necessary since the sides are all...

    Element Silver Sector 5 Pix

    Ok, purchased a fake, $23.07 shipped, ebay auction - I was on the fence, and frankly, surprised I won with such a low bid, as many were selling, the previous week for about $60 with some regularity. Fit - tight as a drum - excellent. And like was said in the review of the real thing it's so...

    Element Silver Sector 5 Pix

    I know - and I agree - and the one I had on my iPhone 4 (it was fake too - did not learn of this until selling the old phone - by the way), it had the nylon part (or whatever it was) and it too did not degrade the signal. To be honest, this is more test than need - I just prefer the metal bumper -...

    Element Silver Sector 5 Pix

    I hate to admit it, but I have purchased an ebay version - not because I want the admitted coolness of the real thing - and I do believe they are cool, rather, I do want a metal bumper - and have not found one yet that does not reduce the wifi or reception (admittedly, I only tried one). It...
