    Should I trade-in iPhone 3GS or unlock for overseas travel?

    O.K. guys, I'm leaving for the U.K. (London) next Sunday for a week. I'm returning to the U.S. the following Saturday. I still have my 3gs & also my 5s (will have about 1 month left in the 2 year contract on it). Will AT&T allow unlocking of the 5s with 1 month left in the contract? What is the...

    Should I trade-in iPhone 3GS or unlock for overseas travel?

    Hi all I have ordered an iPhone 5s & intend to keep my 3gs & get the unlock code from AT&T for use during overseas travel with a local SIM Card, especially when visiting family in France. I'd like to know if you guys think it advisable to retain the 3gs for such purposes, or just trade it in...

    Grandfathering data plan

    I currently have an iPhone 3gs that I am considering updating to a 5s. My current Data Plan with AT&T is Unlimited. I understand that if I purchase a new iPhone 5s through AT&T, I will be able to "grandfather" my unlimited Data Plan to my new iPhone. Would this still be the case if I purchase...

    Quicken for Mac v.s. iBank

    iBank is a Macintosh App, the vendor I don't recall at the moment (I'm @ work at the moment). I made the switch back in January/February & am now using it on desktop Mac Pro & like it a lot. I've just got to figure out the settings to correctly print my checks, but I rarely print checks right...

    US iPad in the UK

    I'm not so sure of the need for a step down converter for the different voltage in the U.K. I believe the power supplies are made to work world-wide. The prongs that fit into the wall socket are removable so that you can switch them out for the correct fit. I took my MacBook Pro to France in...

    I ordered my iPad this past Friday. How long to get my iPad

    Mine was ordered on Friday also. FedEx Tracking says "Shipment information sent to FedEx", last update having been Nov 28, 2010 10:49 AM. It also says "International Economy Distribution", so it's coming from overseas, probably China is my guess. Mark

    Quicken for Mac v.s. iBank

    I've been using Quicken for Mac for my personal finances since the early 1990's, but as far as I know it hasn't been updated since 2007 & trying to get it to sync with an iPhone or iPad is a hassle now (it was a lot easier with my old Palm T|X until it broke). I've seen ads for iBank, which...

    Getting an iPad

    While visiting my snow-bird parents for the Thanksgiving holiday in Florida, we were having dinner with family friends last night & one of them had an iPad, which I spent a bit of time looking at. I had been looking at getting an eBook reader & had been debating between the Kindle & an iPad...

    Email Connection

    I have a 3GS that I picked up last September. Overall I've been happy with it, but I haven't been able to check my email using my iPhone in over a week. All I get is the spinning icon & "Connecting". I have 2 email accounts, 1 on Verizon & 1 on Earthlink.(an old Mindspring account). I...

    Travel Apps

    I'm glad to hear that. According to the salesman at the Apple Store when I purchased my iPhone, it needed access to a data network for the GPS to work. I guess that he was wrong. I was wondering about that, because several of the "offline" city maps in the App Store state that they can...

    So who's into photography? I need a little guidance.

    I'd look for a camera with an optical viewfinder. Just try using the LCD Monitor on the back of the camera outside in the sunlight while wearing polarized sunglasses - you won't be able to see it - especially if trying to take a portrait with the camera vertical instead of landscape (camera...

    Say hello to our iPhone community!

    Hi everyone. I've been a member for a couple of months now, but I finally bought a 32gb 3G S iPhone this afternoon, so I've joined the crowd. I've been using Apple products for over 20 years now (a IIe, several Desktops, a MacBook Pro, & 3 iPods over the years), so I'm familiar with their...

    iPhone /Palm PDA Comparable Apps?

    Thanks jmp316 I had already done that, just a quick look at several programs however. Several of the program descriptions say that the app will export to QIF files, that are readable by Quicken, but the way that I understand that, you then have to import that file into Quicken. That's one more...
