Ohh, by the way there is this app "App Gratis". Helps in finding out free apps for the day.
I've iPhone 4S. This is the first time I noticed "No Service" during a call Frequent network drop disappeared after some time, earlier as well as now.

There are many apps to know price drops for apps. AppOfTheDay is also a good one. appsfire is another good one, which lets yo create price drop/free alerts for apps.

ok, mine is an IP5. So looks like a common problem. I did get a couple of drops during a call.

Thanks for the info on those apps.

It finally happened, that too just when I bought a new iPhone dock for my home speakers!

I pulled out the phone from my pocket when entering the car today and it fell face down on the road, bang on a small stone. The front screen has crumpled around the home button and a big crack runs down the screen from top to bottom

Can anybody help with a repair shop in Bangalore who can replace the front screen for me? My iPhone 4 has been purchased in UK so no servicing by the official stores!

Thanks for this, @slicvic! They were professional in my interaction with them. I've got a quote from them and waiting for a couple of other vendors to reply as well. Will update this thread on what I go with finally.

I'm on 2G, so no question if switching. Also, the problem has almost disappeared today! I had the same experience at the time of last upgrade as well.

Can somebody tell me what does the + sign signify?

You are in Edge that us shown by E sign beside Airtel.
+ sign is from your Nike plus app you are using for workout.

+ sign does not appear whenever I use Nike+ app. This morning I had Nike+ and Runkeeper simultaneously and saw this + sign. I see Bluetooth sign when only Nike+ is running.

iOS 6.1 is now available. The updates doesnt seem to be relevant for me, so have disregarded it.

Ahh that clears it, 2G does not allow data and voice. So if any app is trying to access internet while at a call this message can pop up and then it will resume once the call is cut. I thinks thats the cause. Do you get this message even while taking calls while connected to wifi? I guess not.

I found iRepair a little costly. I recently got my iphone 4 Screen changed for a nominal amount at iService. Authenticity etc might be an issue, but IMHO, its a decent repair and quite nominal as well. Look it up on FB for details.

Finally, I am migrating from APPLE to SAMSUNG.

I am getting my Samsung Note 2 delivered today evening. It was a tough decision to move from the Apple ecosystem into Android. The sheer size of the screen and the intuitiveness of the Note-2 got me interested. And at 35k price, its a wonderful piece of art IMO.

I still have 3 iPods (Shuffle, Nano and Touch) at home. So I am very much connected to the Apple world. Sorry Apple, for me, you lost the game somewhere.

Well, the problem was like this - Networks would drop and reappear after a second. This was happening very frequently, many times a minute. It happened for about 2 days after upgrade to 6.0.1 and 6.1. It disappeared mysteriously!

The other problem of "No Service" during the call happened only once, I was not on wi-fi; after upgrade to 6.1.

I noticed + sign this morning when I started Nike+. I don't remember seeing this with 6.0.1. Is it a feature of 6.1?

Thanks AJ, that was very helpful. They turned out to be the most reasonable among the four vendors I spoke to. iRepair quoted 5.8k for the front screen and iService quoted 3.4k (both said these were original screens and came with a 6 month warranty). There were other vendors who quoted 1.5k but they gave no warranty.

So got the screen replaced from iService. It was an hour's job, that's it. The quality of the screen looks as good as the original gorilla glass. I tested everything I could -- camera, light sensor, typing and various touch actions. Couldn't find any difference from the original screen. So I am satisfied as of now.

Excellent fit & finish of the new glass

And now for some extra precaution. Out goes the silicone cover...
