Except you have to be careful if  you buy a used iPhone, another list member 
did this also only to found out that apparently the iPhone she bought was 
reported stolen and was blacklisted. Under $100 sounds good, but you can buy 
cheaper paper weights than that. I’m not saying you can’t buy used, just saying 
it’s always a risk.

Subject: Re: Upgrade process from iPhone 5S

Hi Bill, I hear your concerns.  I am a fairly new iphone user and I had the 
same concerns about affordability of new iphone that you mentioned.  Add to 
that the fact that my flip phone was doing most of the things I wanted it to 
do, just very slowly lol!!  I couldn’t believe the asking price for new iphones 
and really did not want to invest heavily in a product that I might not even 
like.  So, I asked around and ultimately started perusing amazon.com and 
groupon.com.  Low and behold, one day, there it was- an apple 5 for less than 
$100.00.  Later on, I found a refurbished apple SE 16 G for somewhere in the 
200  to 300 price range.  I know the apple SE is the same size as the 5, and 
uses the same accessories.  So, that shouldn’t be an issue.  In sum, I think 
you will find something within your price range as long as you are patient and 
persistent.

Subject: Upgrade process from iPhone 5S

Hello, again list.

I am concerned about the process of upgrading my 5S to a better model.  It is 
falling apart, as I have lost the physical mute switch and the touch screen is 
sitting on the phone and I have to be careful not to lose it.  The case has 
been gradually losing pieces.  I have had it for four years, so it is really 
overdue for a replacement.

First, I am having trouble with the iOS 11 installation cycle.  It seems to be 
failing due to lack of capacity, but I’m not sure if this is really the issue.  
I am concerned about updating apps to accommodate this new version, and I 
vaguely recall hearing there is a way to tell which apps might have trouble 
working when I go from iOS 10 to 11.

I worry about the transfer of my apps and data to a new phone, fearing I may 
lose somethingin the process.   I know I can back up the phone to iCloud, but 
am not sure if this is happening automaticallyofr if there is some step I need 
to take to do this just before the switch.

When I get the new phone, will I need to reconnect my bluetooth devices, my 
keyboard, a tile I have on my key ring, and my headphones?  Will I need to 
replace these.  I also have a stand for my K-NFB reader I might need to 
replace, though admittedly I haven’t used it much.

I am wondering what type of new iPhone I can or should get.  I bought the 5S 
through my local A. T. & T. store back in 2014.  It is fully paid off long 
since through my cell phone bill with them.  I know I could have taken a free 
upgrad from them at some point, but was unsure of what model I would have 
gotten, and I was afraid of going through the transfer process then.  Now I 
have to update with the phone falling apart, and don’t know what I can get and 
still have the same transfer fears.
If I can’t get it free, I have fears about the cost of the new phone, or how 
much I can afford to allow the bill to increase to pay for it that way.  I am 
in a jam with my available credit.

One other technical issue is the compatibility of my charger.   Will I have to 
replace it?

One more issue is getting a protective case for the new iPhone.  The cost cost 
concerns me as this may have to be a separate purchase at another time.

I would again appreciate someone helping work through this process.
