I purchased a used iPhone 5S from Gazelle

2015-07-19 Thread Vicky Collins
Yes, I know, grin, this is of course not the best time to be buying a phone. But, well, seeing as I wanted to test iOS 9 without risking my iPhone 6, and then I thought I might give the phone to a family member once I was done testing, I decided to go ahead and make the purchase from Gazelle.

Although it probably isn't necessary for the new owner to operate the phone, when I gave my 6 plus to my sister in-law, I did go to a couple of Apple web sites and disable a couple of things. First, since I have two-step verification enabled, I went to the following site and signed in and

Just thought I would let you all know how things turned out with my gifting that iBook to my sister. I had both good luck and bad luck in the end, with the very end result turning out to be not so good. First, for the success part of the equation. Remember, I was told I needed to verify my

iPhone 6 or 6 plus

I decided to start a new thread to answer Carol's question. I like the somewhat smaller size of the 6; and, besides, rushing to get something on launch day, my 6 plus is only a 16GB, while my 6 is a 64GB. And, not that I really need it to be since I'm intending on staying with ATT, but my 6

As I have mentioned previously, I purchased both an iPhone 6 and 6 plus, to see which one I liked the best. And, seeing as, at least for my purposes, I prefer the 6, I'm visiting my family in Kentucky and looking to give a family member the 6 plus. Am I correct that going to settings, then to

Although I've purchased apps with my iPhone 6 plus, I don't believe I've yet done so with the iPhone 6. Thus, when I tried to gift an iBook to my sister, I was told that I had to verify my identity or something to that effect, and then I was only given an okay button with no way to verify

Have they changed something with the stock weather app with iOS 8.3? For, if memory serves, I used to be able to open the app and have it show my list of saved cities with their current temperatures, but now it seems to open up showing the weather for my current location. Not a big deal, as I
