NONE of ANY Android devices sold for/through prepaid (Net10, Straight Talk, Tracfone, Boost etc.) get updates (actual carrier prepaid could be an exception), and that's a pretty decent chunk of the Android installed user base.
The 3 year deal is set to expire soon, opening the floodgates for retailers who initially refused ApplePay to finally start using it without fear of the CurrentC contract. That's why Best Buy is offering it "later this year."
All of these cord cutter subscriptions are soon going to cost more than the satellite or cable subscription when you add them all up. I really hope Apple comes out with something much better that actually makes it worth cutting the cord.
Data speeds, reception, battery life, and the phone app occasionally won't make a call. Tap on a name to call, and it pops up with the calling screen, then immediately goes to call ended and back to the contacts screen. The only fix for the phone app is a reboot. That would be fantastic in an emergency situation... s/ I've tried a soft reset, and that didn't help anything... at all. With well over 30 GB of stuff on my iPhone, I'm not in a big hurry to do a full restore.
So... let me get this straight...
A little band that almost nobody has heard of is moaning the blues over royalties not going to them during a 3 month FREE trial that APPLE ISN'T MAKING MONEY ON, EITHER (!!) for a service that is just about to launch. Well, if Apple never came out with Apple Music in the first place, they wouldn't be making any money from a new service at all.
I saw the tweet from this moron. He makes it sound like Apple is making money during...
This isn't deleting "OLD" backups. It deletes ALL backups for that device. Since backups are merged, it's almost pointless deleting the entire backup file per device to only take HOURS to create another new backup.
This article is completely useless.
Mine: Sprint Framily Plan: unlimited talk, text and data w/ annual upgrades (on Sprint with NO throttling): $45 + $20.84 (DIP) = $65.84 + taxes = +/- $72 per month. I pay full retail price sales tax down, or any amount over that if I want to lower the monthly payment. That's roughly the same price on their iPhone for Life plan, which is $70. Oh, and you're stuck another 2 years every time you upgrade with a 2-year AT&T contract. Sprint offers no-contract, just pay off the...
I was with AT&T for several years. When they stopped giving me annual upgrades due to being the account holder with 5 lines of all iPhones, it was time to switch carriers. AT&T is great at giving then taking away. Enough was enough. I considered T-Mobile, but they're horrid in many rural areas, which is mostly where I'm at. They still have nothing better than EDGE in my city, the largest city between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, and there are too many holes in between. I'll...
Am I the only one who still uses AOL mail?
It has better spam filters than most, it's been the most reliable (for me, anyways) and they've had push notifications for iOS for years, plus it plays nice with IMAP mail clients (Mac & iOS Mail)... and it is NOT GOOGLE.
Well, AOL, it's been a great run. Since you've been burned at the stake by Verizon, I might have to finally start looking elsewhere after nearly 30 years. Verizon is the 2nd evil behind Google.
