Guys, need help.

My service provider (BSNL) keeps sending data usage/ call charges summary as flash messages. To use the phone, say in the morning or after a while, I need to keep dismissing all such flash messages. That is pretty annoying. Please tell me guys how do you deal with it?

Thanks.

It seems there is not gonna be a 16GB version of the iPhone 6/6Plus; starts from 32GB. The iPhone 6 32GB will be priced at the current 16GB 5S.

looks wrong , there is no 32 GB version of phone on US / Canadian stores yet , most likely they have ditched this altogether . They have reduced difference in costs of 16 & 64 to only around $ 100 unlike $ 200 in past on previous iphone generations .

That's right. The options now are 16GB, 64GB and 128GB (link).

Prices in Singapore:

iPhone 6
16GB S$988.00
64GB S$1,148.00
128GB S$1,288.00

iPhone 6 Plus
16GB S$1,148.00
64GB S$1,288.00
128GB S$1,448.00

For comparison, here the 16GB 6 is now priced exactly as the 5S, and as of now the 64GB 6 is priced same as 32GB 5S. I expect the latter's price to be revised once 6/6 plus is launched.

dear Lord!

the iPhone 6 16GB is 6.5k more than the retail price of the iPhone 5S (i know this might vary when it hits Indian shores). iPhone 5S was being sold at 53,500/- for the 16GB (now reduced though)! iPhoen 6 16GB will be 60K+!

i think i'll go buy the 5S.. or stick to the Note 3? dammit! can't decide

with the iPhone 7, i'm sure they'll hit the 1lakh mark *green grinning fella*

don't convert prices of sing$ , they have kept iphone 6 prices same in US as for iphone 5 which has since been reduced . Expect apple to price at same rates in India as well . They will officially reduce prices for 5S in my opinion . Given the massive demand / supply issues of 6 Plus it will be a while before we can get in India.

October 17th as per news & Apple India website . I doubt they will be able to release many 6 Plus models though .

Edit :: I cant see this date on apple site any longer - maybe they are pushing this back

Iphone 6 Launch delayed for Indian Market

Two of the biggest such markets, China and India, have been left in dodgy territory by Apple in terms of the iPhone 6. While a release date for China has not been revealed, in India, the company’s website has removed the earlier launch date of October 17. The change was reflected a day before the iPhone 6 series went on pre-order in the US.

Anyone knows of any Class 0/ flash sms blocker for iPhone? I am getting annoyed by the post call/ data usage information sent by the service provider.

Does not work. It is like a flash message which occupies the full screen with only 'Dismiss' as option. Even the home button does not work. In the morning, I have to 'dismiss' at least 15-20 such messages just to get to the home screen of the phone. It is ruining the experience of the phone and is annoying me no length.

The Official Price of iPhone 5S 16GB has been reduced in India to Rs. 44,500/- and 32GB to Rs. 49,500/-. Regarding the Official Launch of iPhone 6, the date has been removed from the Official Website, indicating that there are certain Supply concerns. At the same time, India is an important market for Apple, so they may not push the launch date beyond 2 months.

Yes. Great move. iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S available at online retailers starting from 24k and 35k respectively. Highly VFM at this price point.
