iPhone 6 omnibus thread

Recommended Posts

1. Yes.

2. No, but it will be when I turn it in.

3. No. The screen is in perfect condition and the phone is literally 2 months old 

 

:) 8 am here I come. They're opening the store an hour early on friday. I plan on being one of the first few customers. 

When I traded in my 5 on friday morning, they had to look up the IMEI to make sure it was not bad. That was it.

 

I had a few dents as well but they took it.

I am legit surprised that the phone is so popular.....I think we have a lot of android people with bigger phones like the note, switching over....As an iPhone user, I am going to be okay with the 6, but the 6+ is still to big enough for me. 

 

Yeah I'm going with the 6 instead of the 6+.  The N5/G2 is about as big as I would ever want to go.  The 6+ just looks incredibly big with the top and bottom bezels. 

 

I need to make some calls this evening and decide which store I am going to at open.  I hope the one that I drive by on my way to work everyday will have some 6's for grabs.

I held my friend's Nexus 5 the other day without a case. Since the phones are almost the same height except for .1 mm difference, and the 6 will be a little slimmer due to the screen being 4.7" instead of 5", I think I will be able to manage just fine. I liked how big the screen was, and to be honest, was jealous of the extra room for activities. 

 

I can not wait to get the 6. That and I'm going to test the hell out of spark. Pretty sure my campus has a clearwire site...so I look forward to seeing how it works there.

Just realized I won't be able to *easily check LTE bands when this phone comes in. Here's to hoping Field Test Mode still works and allows us to at least view numerical signal strength rather than "balls" of LTE.

 

If you got an iPhone 6, you a baller.

That's cool.  I may hold on to my 5 as a back up just in case the new phone breaks.

 

I just looked up my order from Saturday on Sprint.  As expected, no shipping date or status update.  I kind of expected it though.

 

 

I still don't have a confirmation number of my preorder. I am getting super nervous.

 

 

This is normal for Sprint preorders.  When I preordered the 5 two years ago, I finally got a tracking number on Thursday afternoon and the phone showed up Friday.

I wonder with all these iPhones now supporting b41, how many speed tests it will take to curve the results towards what they should be. lol

Warning if you are on Framily and do the iPhone for life lease.  They consider it a discount and charge you the $15 Framily fee.  I ordered my wifes phone on the lease and today the $15 charge started showing on my acct.  Working with chat now but so far they are not moving.  Nothing was stated while placing the order this would be the case.

 

I should note I moved to Framily while they were making exceptions to the fee, not sure if that is part of this.  Technically I am still under a contract from my last upgrade but I had never been charged the fee.

 

Update:  Finally got a chat rep to remove the fee.  Said it was a glitch in the system.  I will be keeping a close eye on my acct the next few days.

From what I have been reading, this probably will be the case with the 6+.  It seems that the 6+ preorders were much higher than the 6 so I would not be surprised if the wait is not longer than the current estimated time.

 

It looks like the 6 will have stock in stores.

Per sprints website regarding shipping, iPhone 6 Gold (all sizes), will be available for delivery on Sept. 19th.  Very excited. (I don't know if the link will work). iPhone 6 silver and gray 16gb are delayed up to three weeks.

Here's hoping my 6 in black 64gb made it through. I haven't received an email about anything.

I always get anxious when I have something on order.

I ordered early enough on the first preorder day that I expected to get it launch day. Same thing this year. I noticed on the order status page that all iphone 6 16gb silver and grey models ordered before Saturday at 5pm are expected to show up on Friday.

Since it shows my order as "at our warehouse", does this mean I might actually have a chance of mine being delivered on Friday? I finally was able to get my order in about 4:45 AM on Friday.

I do not think so, I think it will all depend on how many units sprint has to ship this week. My order says the same thing and I had my order in with two hours of going on sale.

Unfortunately I don't think you can hope for anything more than getting it within the first 3 weeks...

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.

    • Sprint has updated its VoLTE Page as a result of the merger: https://www.sprint.com/en/shop/services/volte.html Support for additional devices has been listed. A couple of things I noticed: “By enabling VoLTE, you will get access to expanded coverage on the T-Mobile network with capable devices.” and this change to Wi-Fi Calling: How does VoLTE work with Wi-Fi Calling? Wi-Fi Calls will transfer to VoLTE when Wi-Fi coverage becomes poor and VoLTE is available. For this automated transfer to take place, VoLTE must be turned “ON”. Starting in April 2020, Sprint is updating most VoLTE-capable devices to prefer Cellular networks over Wi-Fi Networks. This means that if your device has Wi-Fi Calling enabled, it will only be used if the cellular coverage in your area is poor. If you are on an active call using VoLTE and the coverage does decline, the call will attempt to transfer from VoLTE to Wi-Fi when the device is connected to a strong Wi-Fi signal.    
    • Yes indeed, it resolved my issue.
    • Samsung bandwidth selection app still works?
    • Btw new update is out! With security finally updated! Also, camera improvements, autofocus is much better now, on top of that, a couple of tweaks within the camera app.  Very nice update.
