My 7 Plus does a fairly kinda sorta decent job I guess  - but I've noticed a weird anomaly: Take a still photo and then look at it and it moves slightly. As if it captured a half a second of motion. Have you come across this on any of your iphone experiences? I mean, what the hay?
 

That's a "Live" photo. You can swipe up and make an animated loop out of it, or edit it in the Photos editor and choose a different frame as the primary. You can also turn off "Live" to save space.

Is that the Ken Burns' effect? I think that's one possible mode of a photo shot that the iPhone offers. Ken Burns uses it with photo stills in his documentaries, hence the name.

however, i have found a flaw with iphone on rp

it appears that the emoticons and backspace don't play well together

i have not confirmed this with other sites

and there is the "it could be me" factor

very fast, buttery smooth and everything works like a charm

so there's that
 

really not sure what "nsa approved" means. if android meets that standard, iphones surely must as well.

my mom and i got locked out of our icloud accounts on separate occasions. apple's tech support was v. helpful and helped us restore access but yes, icloud's design created a race condition when we changed our passwords.

our problems never should have happened however. feel yore pain. i think that issue has been fixed. cross fingers. 

hope you love the phone. next time you talk to an Apple employee at an Apple store about your phone, see if they ask your permission to hold/touch your phone before doing so. they were trained to do so in the past, probably still are.

are you a fan of e.e. cummings?

And yes, Apple customer service in Apple Stores and over the phone is pretty damned great.

But yes, Apple could have lower prices.

Does anyone have any experience with purchasing/using "unlocked" iPhones? Good idea? Bad idea?

 
Charlie was given an iPhone 4 that he really really enjoyed... a little too much. We got him an iPod nano for Christmas (no internet) and retired the iPhone. A couple of weeks ago, Justine got a SIM card for it (99¢) from Tracfone and ported her number over to it. We use tracfone anyway but it's fine. 

 
 
I don't know if that all's different from Unlocked or what. So anyway.

Thats no worse than replacing a battery in a Moto X. You heat up the back cover with a heat gun or other heat source to soften the glue that holds it on and either use the "official" factory pry tool to remove it or if you are cheap like me use guitar pics to lift it off slowly around the perimeter. Then you can get to the battery. Makes the difference of $7.49 for the battery from Amazon or about $100 for the factory cervice center to do it.

Here's a funny one. Several months ago I realized my 4S was no longer joining wifi networks. I opened the wifi settings and flipped the switch off, intending to switch it back on, and the phone froze. I rebooted the and noticed the wifi switch was grayed out and unavailable. I googled the issue and tried some things but found no solution to the problem. I figured I'd start looking for another phone. I don't want to spend $500-$600 for a new phone so I've been keeping my eyes open for a used phone. 

The other day I thought, "Maybe I should run this latest update to see if it magically fixes my wifi." So I did, but it didn't. I googled the problem again and found a vidio shot by a kid describing how to fix the problem. First you heat your phone up with a blow dryer until it shuts down and gives you the message about overheating. Then you power off the phone. Then you put the phone in a ziploc and put it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. WTF? 

I looked at the comments........some said it worked. Some complained about toasting their phone. I decided to give it a try but I just put it on my dashboard in the hot sun until the heat protection circuit kicked in. (I'm not going to point a blow dryer at my phone) Then I shut it down, slipped it into a ziploc, and put it in the fridge. After 10 minuted I pulled it out, booted it up, and checked the wifi settings. The switch was no longer grayed out. I flipped it to the on position and immediately joined my home network. 

Who thinks this shit up?



 
It boils down to a solder somewhere.  Has to be.  The procedure is archaic, but essentially you are re-seating solder points.  Now, I'd be extra careful not to make that phone display that overheat message again.  The pendulum might swing the other way.  {#Wink}
