Any pointers? Price is not too much of a concern, as long as it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. The cases made by Apple for the 5S are not available yet, so looking for a temporary case.

Thanks in advance! Cheers!

I got a Cygnett make case for iphone 4s a couple of months back from croma. There were cases for 5 also which will fit the 5s as well but make sure that the case doesn't cover the home button as the fingerprint recognition won't work. The case which i had bought for 4s covers the home button too.

The cygnett workmate case is a very sturdy case and would highly recommend the same.

Price was about 1500 bucks but got a promotional discount of Rs 500 when i had bought it.

Congrats on the 5S. Otterbox Commuter ~$35 is slim and has great reviews on Amazon. I am also a fan of Speck products. They have a popular dockable case on Amazon at the same price. iPhone repair have some cases from Gecko & CapDase online. Am not sure if all their 5 cases fit the 5S however.

Are any of the iPhone user's finding that the connection to whatsapp, viber, BBM & internet just drops frequently? Either I have to switch off cellular data and then put it back on or in worst cases I have to restart the phone to get these apps working again. I have a iPhone 5 running on IOS 7 & I have been noticing this happening for past few weeks. It started after I upgraded to IOS 7. Is it the phone, IOS 7 or Airtel?

Thanks for the responses fellas. Much appreciated!

Over the weekend, I checked out a few cases, and they were all either hideous to look at, or plain useless from any kind of a safety perspective.
I have got a temporary leather case, but it simply can't be used with the iPhone. That's like marrying a super model and dressing her up in fat jeans, a sweatshirt, and crocs.

So I've decided to wait it out and get the Apple designed case for the 5S.
It might take a while, but for now am not throwing that beautiful piece of machinery in some god-awful hideous/useless case.
Will have to be cautious and careful for the time being, but so be it.

I am not sure, but i do remember reading on the Airtel thread on the forum about how many are facing dropped data connections on the Airtel network over the past few days. Could be a network issue.

BBM on iOS is pathetic! RIM is sleeping, no updates coming too plus you can't even report the problem.

I completely agree.
Another issue i came across on BBM was that whenever i receive a new invite, i have to restart BBM again even after accepting the invite, in order to add the new invite to my BBM contacts.

Blackberry seriously needs to work on it !

(I cannot find a dedicated Ipad thread so am posting this here. Mods - please move it if there is a more appropriate thread. If Amazon Kindle rates a separate thread so does the Ipad methinks.)

I've been using my Ipad 2 for the past couple of years. Been my trusted all purpose companion. I've used it for browsing, net transactions, music etc but the bulk of my use has been for reading. I've got 3 different reader apps (Goodreader, Kindle and ibooks) which pretty much cover all formats. And at the risk of raising some hackles, I would say that the reading experience has been just as good as e-readers and I have not felt any eye strain using it for long periods (there is no conclusive evidence that e-readers cause less eye strain) - a cousin has a Kindle Paperwhite, so yes I've experienced that as well.

I wonder if any of you would know whether it is possible to lock or hide an app or a folder on the Ipad (and no temporary solutions please)? If I wanted to password protect or hide my Goodreader app, is it possible?

Hi Arunshek,

Thanks for your reply on this.

Actually my Jiju has already asked one of his office mates to get a new iphone from US when he returns in a fortnight, hence could not followup with your friend on his offer.

Thanks,
Jimmy

I have not faced any glitches on BBM yet and it works like any other messaging application or even better. The only issue I noticed is my phone is not vibrating when I receive a new message, I couldn't find an option on BBM setting on the bottom right corner. Also in my phone notification centre I have kept the sound option ON for BBM and kept vibrate on silent as ON as I prefer my phone to be on silent mode 24 X 7.
I don't think it may be an issue with the application whilst I'm unaware how to handle this.

I have the same issue, sometimes I get the notification sometimes I don't and even I keep my phone in vibration mode 24x7. Its a problem with BBM of not getting the notifications. Out of 10 times twice I get the notification.
