iPhone 6 omnibus thread

Recommended Posts

But you have to keep in mind that they also make less 128gb models ;)

We'll see.. Either way it's coming.. Last year the 64gb model was more available and they were also the top tier priced and they made less of those as well.. So it's hard to say..

I just can't wait to see a band 41 field test screenshot. Someone better post one here on Friday.

Your iPhone 5 will receive it's iOS 8 upgrade on Wednesday the 17th!

 

Don't want to upgrade my 5 since I would lose my jailbreak on it. I will have to have to wait a few weeks till I can order a 6+. Until than I hope to see many screen shots.

So if my order does not ship today, I am guessing I will not get it on Friday. Hope I do not burn up my mouse hitting the refresh button!

Don't waste your time - you'll get the phone on Friday if you had a successful pre-order with Sprint. You might not get a tracking number until Thursday. Even if I don't get one at all, I'm not worried.

I took off work in the morning thinking I would be able to pick up my preorder before I go in. Now that I'm thinking I prolly won't get the call saying it's there until the afternoon.

I'm not really that bothered if it doesn't get to me Friday.  iOS 8 comes out tomorrow and can tide me over until my 6 arrives.  I do want to get some kind of notification from Sprint soon, as if I'm not getting it I'm going to the farm earlier.

So, Sprint's buyback match offer is only for new customers, right?

No. Not from what I was told.

I already put the golden master of iOS 8 on my 5s and I've been liking it so far. I've had iOS 8 for about a month now at least so it's worn off on me. I just want the phone to get here so I can play around with it and see how it does for signal strength and speed compared to my 5s.

Not true.  In fact you can go to their buyback site right now and see they are already matching the T-Mobile prices.  You can even do the transaction there and lock in the pricing if you want.

Not really.  My past preorder with sprint did not update until the night before delivery.  It was delivered on the promised day.  If your order says the 19th, there is no reason not to expect it on the 19th.

Didn't know this...the 6 and 6+ have a contrast ratio of 1400:1 versus the 5s and 5c at 800:1. Impressive. The lg g3 is around 800 I believe....

My gf's 5C has been running like a dog since I put the GM on. Facebook scrolls super slow and freezes, same with safari. Apps will lock for 5-10 seconds then unfreeze randomly. I'm hoping it's just because the apps have not been updated for iOS8 yet. Have you noticed any of this?

Exaxctly the same has happened to me. I didn't notice it at first, but apps have just been freezing and unfreezing. Tapatalk becomes unusable sometimes requiring a restart of the app. This better be fixed by tomorrow.

I figure there will either be an 8.0.1 update in less than a week, Or all of these non-compliant apps will be updated in a mass wave tomorrow.

Why blame apple, unless they are certified for iOS. Then blame apple.

Interesting in the second link that it states that existing customers who preordered the 6 could have it sooner than Friday.  I just can't see Apple allowing that to happen...

I'm not blaming either - it could be either one. We won't know until it is officially released.

It has to be an issue with the app. Probably just not completely iOS 8 compatible yet. I understand completely....and hope that the apps are updated tomorrow to remedy these issues because they make the apps unusable.

 

I had this issue with beta 4 and thought it was my wifi...and it kinda was. It was timing out (if you will). My iMessages would send as texts instead of iMessage. Pages would pause, and then load a 5-10 seconds later. It was odd. Is odd. Hope they fix it.

The 5s is 351 in store also.

Does Sprint require the charger, lightning cable, etc. to be turned with the iPhone for a trade-in, or do they just want the phone?

 

Thanks!

Litterally just need the phone and battery if the phone model has a removable battery for a full buyback.

Mine never gave me a day. Just said up to three weeks. Haven't heard anyone say that have a specific delivery date for the 6 plus. My order was in within two hours of going on sale. Just do not know if that made any difference or not. Haven't found any info about sprint shipping anything yet.

      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.
