    10 years too late or early, I have finally decided to get myself an iPhone 7 Plus. I am an ex-Windows Phone fan. However, I have a 7 year old iPad Mini, a 3 year old MacBook Air 13" and all I can say is, I am now ready to get an iPhone.

    Enough of MS doing BETA testing on its users. Enough.

    I would much rather join a brand that cares for its customers rather than someone who has commitment issues.

    So, welcome me guys!

    WOOT!

    Welcome to iMore! Having an iPad will make the transition to iPhone much easier. Then iOS 11 is going to change things up between iPad and iPhone so you’re just in time for that. We’re always happy to help out if you have any questions.

    Thanks a ton MetallicaMilitia. I am glad to join the Apple fan base. Now that I have grown seeing so much struggle and hatred (in the Windows community over the years). I in fact plan to get a new iPad Mini too as my first gen Mini is sooooo sloowww. But nonetheless, love it. And my Air is a million times better than my software-wonky, bug-riddled, BETA testing OS Surface Pro 4.

    It's great to come to a drama free phone OS. iOS is my favorite platform. I don't want to be without it.
    Enjoy your iPhone. The 7 Plus is a fantastic device.

    You guys have no idea...I am SUPER excited! I was very young and was on my first job when Steve announced the very first iPhone. Over time, I was misguided by a few companies into believing it wasn't anything great. But after 10 years, I have realized. If you want something to "just work" and something that has brilliant hardware, Apple is the answer. My MacBook is a standing testimony to that. Built like a machine. Works like water. Enough said.

    Thank you mate. Just one small thing, I am yet to buy it. I don't know which one to get - White or Black?
    I am personally more inclined towards white/silver.

    Any suggestions?

    Everybody's taste in color is different, but remember ....you're the one that has to see it on a daily basis. Choose the one YOU like best.

    Exactly this. That’s why my options have been limited to one. I simply refuse a white front phone because it sticks out to me in a really bad way. The black front disappears and lets me enjoy my content.

    I'm going to go back to using an iPhone 7 Plus next week, but I'm picking up the PRODUCT red color. I'm not a fan of the white face of the device, but I love the matte red color on the back. It's too bad the iPhone 8 won't have the red color option right out of the gate.

    I wish mine was fantastic, the call quality and reception on mine is dismal.
    Even on WIFI calling everyone complains how I sound on their end.

    Sorry to hear you're having issues with yours. My 7 Plus is one of the best phones I ever owned. I've thoroughly enjoyed it since getting it upon it's release. Have you considered taking it to an Apple store to have it looked at or talked to your cellular provider about the issue. It's under warranty so it won't cost you to have it looked at.

    Thanks, I have had this phone since April. Verizon gave me a new sim than a replacement. Still with the same issues.
    I went to Apple and had a diagnostic test done on it, they found nothing.
    If you Google issues with the 7Plus, you will see others with the same problem. I say it's the antenna.
    Verizon tells me it's the network where I am, and not the phone.
    I asked what changed in the last 7 years? I have not had an issue with call quality around here up until I got this phone.
    And I explained it's not just here, the call quality issues are in other areas.
    I don't want another 7Plus, and I don't want to go back to Android.
    So I guess I have to figure out if changing carriers by going back to AT&T would be my solution.

    Welcome. I have a MacBook Pro. iPad Air 2 and an iPhone 7plus. You will find the way they interact with each other to be seamless. Enjoy.

    Woot! Thanks a lot everyone! @joemd60 So sorry to hear your story bro. Using phones for the last 10 years, and a number of varied OSs and devices at that, I may be able to help you. When a peculiar problem arises, the first thing you should do is: 1. Zero down on the suspect.

    You say the iPhone is the issue. No problem. Get your SIM, put it another device with your exact same config. (ask a friend, or a colleague or anyone).

    2. change your SIM card. Possibly another network. I am not from the US so I don't know how tied you are to a company (in terms of a contract). But this is the only way to zero down on the precise issue. Something you can also claim in your replacement with Apple.

    All the best and let me know if you need any help. More than glad to do that.

    THIS. Not to mention, the majority of my phone cases are partially or completely black. It makes sense for me to have a black phone.

    BTW: To the OP.... welcome and enjoy your iPhone (when you get it)!

    Thanks, I have done everything. Verizon will not give me another replacement. And truthfully, as wrapped up in the OS as I am.
    I honestly do not want to chance another 7Plus, this will be the second replacement, not including the original upgrade, Android is not a viable option considering the music and movies I have collected with IOS
    I shut off 4G completely, so now I know it's not the network. Even though they claim it is, it's everywhere with this phone, not just my house.
    On 3G I am holding 4 bars of signal strength inside my house, yet the call quality with 2 cups and a string is better than this phone.
    So I am at a loss as to what to do next, maybe buy a 5S off eBay.
    Verizon did say I could jump ship to another carrier, which was nice of them to do, as long as I return the phone.
    So again, I have options, even though they are not the best ones.
    Thanks again for your offer of help, I appreciate the kind words.

    Oh man. I feel bad. I am so sorry. May be get a cheaper one off some site like Ebay? Also, of the reception is equally bad everywhere, then it is a problem with the device. Just one area gives you bad connectivity, is technically the network provider's goof up. Good luck and again, if there is anything you need, you can always PM me.

    Cheers and have a good day.
