I was asking about Aircel.

About the version 406 ,you need to use ITunes for this .Ensure that you do backup all the paid applications or else you might have to buy these again .

ITunes/Devices/Restore .This will take around 1 hour to download and about 10 more minutes to install on your phone .

You can find countless topics on this on the internet.

Battery issues still exist on this new version .

Aircel is quiet good, I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I have switched it on for a full day and iPhone 4 lasts the whole day, with push notifications on. Don't go for the iPhone 3G service go for the ordinary one: cheaper and lots of choices. You may have to make alterations to the network settings as follows: General>Network>Mobile Data Network>Under mobile data APN has to read aircelgprs.pr only then will the 3G work for using the normal non iPhone Data plans which I have been using.

The facebook app has that feature. Else you can use the jailbreak tweak knows as iSocialShare.

(PS - I have i4)

You don't really need to backup your purchased applications. iTunes will simply re-download them again. I have done this once when I re-installed Lion on my MBP.

On the FB app click on photo and click on choose from library and upload to your FB a/c. Sorry I have the iPhone 4, I don't think it must be any different for the iPhone 3.

Other than the official Facebook app, you can also use the Batch app to upload photos in bulk.

Well, it could vary between app developers. Some apps track that too with account logins. But yes, in general, for in-app purchases, you have to be careful.

Registered a Complaint with Apple about the buggy iOS 5 and Some Voice clarity issues. Surprisingly, I was asked to go and collect a new iPhone 4S from any Service Outlets!

And Even more surprisingly, Without any questions - I was handed over a new phone by the Service Center, without even checking my older device.

Good one!
Its not hard to implement such a policy, when even a year old 4 has a drop of only 10% from the bought-at price.
Cant imagine sony doing this ever.
each and every one of SEs I have owned from the w850i onwards has lost 70% value in 6 months.cant bear to ask how much they are now.

Meantime, my wife's 1 year old IP4 lost just 2k off the 27k it was bought at...

This is where apple legendary quality of service comes in.

Apple India has a policy of replacing iPhones, mostly without any niggles, as they do not repair iPhones. Only issue is that it might be a refurbished one, but unless one has a very keen eye, there is no way to tell.

But as far as value is concerned, you have to realize that people like you and me got the phone at a very cheap rate (I got my i4 32GB for 26.5K in June last year) so relative to that my phone has not lost any value.
But if you look at it from the point of view of the people who bought it at a highly marked up price (which happens immediately after the launch or when bought officially from India), they go into a major loss, e.g., i4 starting price in India was 36K if I recall correctly.



OT: just curious if the internet abbreviations are allowed on TBHP or not? (IIRC-If I Recall Correctly, AFAIK - As Far As I Know, etc)

I do not have an eye to check if it was a refurbished one - But the phone seems to be clean - I checked the same with my friend who works for Apple - He confirmed that my device is a new one (From UK, after checking the Serial Number)

Was yours the iPhone 4 or 4S? That's great commitment from Apple.

Do you think i should replace the 9A405 to 406 on my iphone 4s considering the fact that i do not have any battery issues on 405?
