    If i buy one, it would be the second time. The first time i kept it 3 months and sold it cause it was not a BB. Now that BB is dead i have no choice to look at iphone again.

    At least they have portable phones. I have a friend who doesn't even have a cellphone - dumb or smart! He shares a flip phone with his wife.

    Same here. Neighbor has a land line that he refuses to answer. He has an answering machine that you are suppose to know to leave a message if somewhat important. Otherwise his g/f has a basic smartphone of some sort, though she is mostly at work.

    Well, I switched from a galaxy s5 to the iphone 7, first few days I couldn't get used to it , but I slowly learned to like the phone.HOWEVER I agree with you that download apps from the net is very tough,including music. Battery life was better on the s5 but iphone 7's isn't bad either.

    On a side note,this may not be under this topic but can someone tell me how to download apps from the internet?


    P.S you can swipe from left to right to go to the previous screen,it's something like the back button but it'll take time to get used to

    Yea we don't hang out as much with these friends anymore bc it was near impossible to reach them. We'd call them at home and they weren't there. Then we'd call them on the cell but they'd have it turned off or the wrong one of them would have it. Got tiring.

    Download apps from the AppStore. Look for the blue icon with an A in it.

    The websites that advertise their sites will have a link to the AppStore. If you click on it, it'll take you to the AppStore.

    As everyone said you can download from your phone via the App Store, but you can also purchase by going to the App Store from iTunes and purchase there. It will download to your phone.

    I think he/she asking if there is a danger of downloading any pirated app and how to avoid it or recognize them.

    If that is not the case, well I want to know !

    If you download from iTunes or the App store, that will never happen. I't not possible. You would have to JB your phone.. and that is not something I recommend.

    We aren't receiving any other feedback from the OP .... coming from android, it takes a few days to get accustomed to iOS. Then you'll hardly go back

    Easiest way is to only download apps directly from the App Store. They have all been approved directly by Apple.

    Glad you were able to be open minded and give the device and OS a chance.

    I have previously had devices jailbroken with installed apps from non-AppStore sources. However, there are generally decent items on the AppStore itself to fill the needs. Plus many of the things I used to jailbreak back a few OS levels ago are now built into iOS 10 anyway so the need just becomes less and less.

    I don't know what cinebox is.... BTW what do you mean with "third party apps" ? You can find literally tons of third party apps on the App Store.

    It's like Netflix but with very recent movie titles. It's not a torrent but streams movies and shows from private servers.
