    My wife and I got our iphones a day early. Coming from windows mobile, I can say......we were living in the dark ages with those. As in it was like owning and using a feature phone instead of a smart phone. Everything that's available on the iPhone works sooooo good. My 10 year old son who has autism is blown away with facetime. My wife and I face timed and he was like...."that's a cool phone". ha ha

    Needless to say, We are more than pleased and both said, why did we wait so long.

    So glad to hear you're enjoying your iPhones. I have a son with special needs and a younger brother wth autism. There are a ton of apps available geared toward individuals with autism. Here's a great resource:

    FaceTime is a pretty good service. My two year old can even use it to call "Daddy" (me) during the day while I'm at work. I only wish Apple would enable conference calling but FaceTime has been raked over by patent trolls so Apple has pretty much stopped working on it.

    Yeah. I have not tried the camera out yet. but all the apps, attachements etc....I think I will deal quite nicely with the apple camera as well. Hey Libra, know anyone who wants 2 1020s and some extra accessories?

    Its funny reading all the comments about windows, now that I opened my eyes. Microsoft has totally bailed on their consumer side of the business and now are only focusing on the enterprise side of things...therefore...I am bailing to Apple. Consumer products designed for the consumer.

    I am keeping my surface as its a killer device, but I see a new MacBook and ipad pro in my future as well.

    Nope, I don't know anyone lol. The cameras aren't going to be on the level of the 1020 but they are nice though.

    I agree, but I still use Microsoft services on my iPhone SE without any issues. I love how easy iOS makes it to do that. I don't know what email you used before but if you used Outlook, be sure to make a contact card for yourself so that Siri can assign a name to you. Makes things easier.

    In general, making yourself a contact makes things a lot easier imo, regardless of if you use gmail, yahoo, or whatever you use.
