    What should I know to make transition as painless as possible? I've only owned Android in the past although my wife has iphone and ipads.

    Thanks!

    The iPhone is very good at what it does, but it sucks at what it can't do. Therefore, be open to the fact that the iPhone is not a Note 3 or any other Android smartphone.

    Maybe warnings about what it cannot do would be helpful to me?

    I don't use the s pen so that is not an issue. I do use Flashplayer but plan to use an app called Puffin to handle that need.

    I just made the switch from N3 2 weeks ago. Not missing too much besides the customization and pen. I do use dual systems though meaning Apple and Android. Attaching items is slightly different from the N3 but not as bad as it used to be.

    This is a switch I just made. Largely, I found that I never used the s-pen. It was cool but not something I was looking for in a phone. If you are not a heavy s-pen user, than the switch definitely makes sense. There is an app you can download for Android that is designed to port everything to iPhone. I highly recommend it.

    Remember that there is not an easy way to sideload apps on an iPhone. If you use sideloaded apps or some of the types of apps that are found on the Google Store but not the app store (emulators for instance) than iOS may not meet all of your app needs. Be sure that you have coverage for all the apps you need on your phone. Most major apps are on both platforms, which is great.

    Oh, If I buy a 6splus at tMobile and decide their coverage sucks can I use it in VZW?

    Just keep in mind that Apple does not sell millions of iPhones because it's a bad phone. All the Flagship phones are good these days. They simply all have their strengths and weaknesses. I will say one big complaint I've heard many from Android say is the iPhone has no back button. But iOS 9 sort of added one. You'll see. Enjoy!

    My understanding is that both are possible. For a PDF though, think the document will need to be in a local file system app that can support the Locations option. But I have not used this option to know if it works fully.

    Perhaps if someone else knows details they could explain further?
