    data usage

    you can reset your data usage in settings, bit crude but use it like the odometer milage counter in a car. Seems more apps record your location in the background even while your not usung that particular app, I'd guess this impacts on your data usage. You might have several navigation photo...

    How to Use Find My iPhone to Locate Lost or Stolen iPhone

    i think the only thing you can do is tell Apple via your airtime supplier that the phone has been lost, they can block it making it effectively an ipod. at least whoever finds it can't then make calls.

    I am having trouble finding Help on my Iphone.

    coming to iOS from other platforms is a learning curve, frustrating at first but like doing a crossword, once you get behind the mind that wrote it your on your way. simple things like enlarging text to insert a character is achieved by hold your finger on text, it will produce a magnifying...

    Awaiting i6 release

    thats going to be relative to users needs ;). i'm still using my 4S 32, and tbh it is absolutely fine for my needs which are mainly for my business. i just think it is so hard for Apple to really beat having lived through windows phones, i don't play games or watch video on it, SIRI for me was...

    Account suspended

    i just got one of these 'Apple id suspended' email messages, along with a link to reset it. not being one who follows any link of this type without investigating properly, as this is a common type of method used in many bank scams i googled it. Softpedia reports a scam (based on this message)...

    BT Smart Talk App

    i spoke to BT today, the girl knew of the app but was not fully aware what you could do. might suit some to go payg instead of contract as example, depending on users usage of coarse, but a nifty way for BT to get call time that your competitors would normally handle, and get client base over...

    Make iphone louder

    i think that will only happen if the speaker drivers are increased in size. you do realise the output is only mono direct from the handset?

    cheapest option is place the handset inside a ceramic bowl and tilt it towards you :).

    tracking A stolen phone

    Similar to the UK, i'd try an angle of you can prove you are the legal owner, you have a crime report number. Verizon have admitted it has been activated so they will know on which network - just as do Apple. Make a formal request as the legal owner to have the phone blocked. As you paid by card...

    tracking A stolen phone

    i find this very strange tbh, ok Verizon can't pass on the info direct to the client but could they not contact Apple to switch the phone off, just as you can having activated then lost your handset and informed them in the 'normal' way? The o/p won't likely get their handset back, but will...

    So what is the next big phone/tablet inovation?

    not knocking, personally i think Samsung are riding more on a wave of trend than innovation. They have chosen to release a larger screen which was brave as in the past larger screen handsets simply did not grab the core customers attention. The app writers (to their credit) have become so...

    So what is the next big phone/tablet inovation?

    not just another iOS V Android thread, thats all been done to death in here :). News reports of a slide in the sales of smartphones iirc 11%, so i thought this is due to the quad dip recession but is it really due to the lack of fresh must have idea's? Whatever your flavour or make loyalty...

    Best Ringtones

    word of caution, pick a rude one it can backfire. my grandson changed ringtone for his number to 'jingle bells' the version was using - lets say an 'abdominal instrument'. so i'm at dinner with a very important client and his wife when he phones me. panic set in as i could not get my phone...
