    Just wondered what most annoys you about using or owning an iPhone ? Could be things like battery life, txt messages, screen size etc ?

    Insufficient brightness of the screen when you’re out in the midday sun.

    Then again, I don’t have a 7. I have 6s Plus. The 7 is brighter.

    Here’s an explanation of what that “cd/m²” means, in case anyone is interested.

    Agreed - mine would be people who read messages and then take ages to reply and you can clearly see they read it ... that's a problem with read receipts

    The only thing that has ever annoyed me about any of the iPhones I've had is the ringer volume or rather the lack of it. Admittedly, my iPhone 7 did improve the ringer volume a bit but as I've said in other posts, my old Motorola Q would almost wake the dead when it rang. Now that phone had a RINGER!!

    You know you can turn read receipts off, right? Even on a per-person basis.

    I usually just assume that the person is in a setting that doesn't allow for texting a reply. They could be driving, sitting in church, at a meeting with the ringer on silent. There are any number of reasons why a person might not reply within a moment or two of reading a text message.

    That's why I leave read receipts off. Replies should be when it's convenient for the person who received text. Some people don't understand that and expect immediate responses. Having read receipts on causes those people to feel ignored, so it's best to just leave read receipts off.

    Or the person could be off on a very passionate and steamy tryst with a hot person of the opposite sex in a seedy motel. Clothes tossed carelessly asunder, sweat everywhere.

    I actually like read receipts—specifically the timestamp that is sent along with it. That way if it took me five hours to get back to someone, they know that I simply hadn’t read the message.

    It’s convenient that a preview of the text/iMessage is shown on the Messages screen. That way, at the very least, you see the first sentence or two without sending a read receipt. It’s often sufficient to get the gist of what they’re trying to say.

    Yeah, but if someone starts texting you stuff like this, you quickly start to see the downfalls:
    1. Why haven't you replied?
    2. It shows that you read my message?
    3. ????
    4. Hello?!

    Wow, that’s sad! Someone needs to get that person 2 mg alprazolam. Stat. C’mon, you’re a nurse, you can probably dose them surreptitiously. Crush a pill into their food, LOL…

    Joking, of course. (Maybe.) :D

    I’m actually pleased to say no one I currently correspond with behaves that way. But then again, you’re much prettier than I, so I could understand their near-obsession with you.

    Oh man. I cut off all my receipts! People I text will know nothing of if I've read it or not.:cautious: Leads to some pretty dicey conversations that haven't turned out well. :unsure: Best to keep them not even thinking about it until it's been too long, by then I've responded. LOL!! :LOL:

    I leave my read receipts on. It's only a handful of people I text with. Besides, I can peek at the message with 3D Touch without leaving the receipt. But that's rare.

    If someone can't get past the fact that I haven't replied to their message immediately after a read receipt was sent, that is just too bad for them. They are assuming that their message is the most important event in my life at the moment and maybe, just maybe, it is not. They should just get over themselves already and I have told a few people exactly that. OK, rant over.
