Correct. I fully agree with you. So I got the 128 Gigs.

Why don't the iPhone 5s have a FM radio. Is this the case with all iPhone s? Can someone give some info on this omission.

Most premium phones don't have the FM radio - the iPhone and the Note series.

Hi, can you pl provide the link as I couldn't find it in paytm. Paytm started with some recharge coupons right, never knew that they have started various other sales like flipkart and amazon. Is it a trustworthy site like flipkart? Does it also have the same return policy? And hope the products are genuine ones and not re-furbished or factory unlocked imported ones?

petrol_power: please specify which product you are looking at.
my experience with PAYTM has been next to excellent on most orders.

I've almost dropped using flipkart due to delivery delays, and am happy with paytm deliveries, which included basic toy to Gaming console, all sealed and delivered perfectly by paytm for me in last 6 months..

Hi ghpk, As you can see in the above post, manas27487 has stated that he saw some 35k for iphone 6s. That's what I was enquiring about. So they sell only new products like amazon/flipkart? Good.

How often should one back up their iPhone? I got a message that the iPhone isn't backed up, so I did that. Took 15/20 mins.

In primary markets for these phones (e.g. USA), people hardly use FM radio from phones - this may explain why such features are never built into them. Some manufacturers though add this feature for India specific versions of global phones

Yesterday I received a carrier settings update when I was syncing up with iTunes. Since then, 4G works without any issues at my workplace, home etc and switch over from 4G->3G has been quite seamless.

Depends on what data you've set to backup; I only have Calendar and Contacts backed up.

Further, there are two ways you can backup: via wifi to iCloud and to iTunes when the phone is connected to the computer.

I am now in process of upgrading from Iphone 4s 16 GB to Iphone 6s 64 GB ( black) . Got from amazon republic day sale for 55,700. I was waiting for Mi 5 but got frustrated due to long delays , More over would have been difficult to let go of IOS ( although MI UI is very close clone of IOS).

Kindly suggest good case and screen glass !!
How much should i expect for 4S 16 GB ever thing working i.e good condition.

I did not have much good experience with paytm , was provided with defective unit which were returned / refunded as Paytm wallet unlike amazon.

Case : depends on budget & preference pal. But I prefer 0.3 mm frosted or mist case which is translucent.

Screen glass: again same as for case but my suggestion - chevron .25 mm screen protector.

I got my first pair of tempered glass from aliexpress. It is colored black for front and back. I then found it on eBay India and have ordered more from there for all the iPhones in our house. My daughters 5s got a blue color, again front and back, while my son got black and wife a transparent one. They are very good and reasonably priced on eBay. I got a rubber back case from Bangkok for my 6s at Rs 50 and though I have three other cases from the US and Aliexpress, this is the one I feel most comfortable with.

Can you give us the link for the tempered glass? Shopping around for one and need advice.

I also have a query, as soon as I lock my 6s, the wifi signal is gone and when I unlock it, it asks to turn on mobile data. Is this normal on the 6s? I've had plenty of Apple devices and none of them have had this problem (if it is one).

Thanks in advance.
