  5. iOS11 - now available.

    I believe I am going to wait until 11.1 is released unless I purchase a new 8 Plus in the next week or so. I have seen a few videos discussing some of the glitches that are being experienced with 11 and with the 6S Plus, it may be a bigger issue versus a 7 or the new 8.

    Heck, since I have been butchering the English language, even with spell check, we can substitute gimped with gumped in this case since you do not know what modem you will receive in the phone:
  8. iPhone 7/7 Plus User's Thread

    It should be. The A1661 model (the Sprint variant) has the same specs. All that should be needed is to switch the SIM card.

    From a frequency standpoint, nothing: A1660 specs FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30) TD-LTE (Bands 38, 39, 40, 41) TD-SCDMA 1900 (F), 2000 (A) CDMA EV-DO Rev.

  14. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    I understand it is hard to justify the extra money and about HPUE and 4x4 MIMO not currently being supported with any new models but my wife would not care. I am more worried about support for the current iPhone she has. I think that the current model she has will loose support in 2018 or 19. I would feel better knowing that something she has would be supported for several years to come. I would rather purchase an 8Plus, then hand it off in a year but she does not like the larger phones. She would like something smaller like an 8 which I do not like. I will need to figure out if this would be the best option long term.
  15. From the information that I have read and listened to, you have to directly stare at the lenses for the phone to unlock and will not unlock if your eyes were not open. Even if the officer did that, would this not classify as an unlawful seizure and be thrown out of court?
  16. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    From the rumors before the release, HPUE was not going to be incorporated. Not having 4x4 MIMO was a bit of a shock. Apple does have a great designs, cool functions and a couple new tricks but the antennas in the phones have always disappointed. In my opinion, when Apple designs a new phone, some of the parts specified stay the same regardless of newer technology being available later before the release. Hopefully with HPUE being pushed into the market, this will force Apple to incorporate the newer technology. The purchase of a X for myself? I am on the fence at this point. I know at some point I will need to replace my wife's phone though she will use her current iPhone (6) until it gives up. If I do, I can keep it for a year and give it to her in 2018. Just need to hear some feedback from actual users before purchasing.

  20. It depends in my opinion. If your employer will pay for the dongle and you have the security needed. why not... I try to use my hotspot as much as i can when traveling due to VPN access. The hotspot is less than optimal when you need to use your phone and hotspot at the same time.
