I'd be off to Bahrain in 2 week on a long term assignment, does it make sense to get it fixed there.

It could be cheaper in Bahrain. Recently I cracked my iPhone 6s in Abu Dhabi and the apple store there changed it for 8.5k.

Check the price of replacing in Bahrain online.

My Mac showed an MacOS and iTunes update so I checked for any updates on the iPhone.

There's the 10.2.1, got mine updated earlier today. About 80 Mb for the iPhone 6; but took a while to install.

Please let me know if you have contact details of any top management with whom i can take this case up.

I never expected this from Apple. I really like the products. I have built apple ecosystem at home. I have Airport extreme, MacBook Air 11, 3 iPhones.

Write a mail in detail to tcook@apple.com and see what happens.

When Amazon refused to give me gift card on a certain promotion, I tried multiple avenues to raise a complaint. Finally in a last ditch effort, sent a mail to jeff@amazon.com . In 3-4 days I had reply from an Amazon India person with my mail to Jeff Bezos attached saying sorry for delay and there was a system error - gift card was promptly added to my account.

Thanks. I sent an email to this email address just after posting my experience here.
Still no reply. I have lost complete faith in apple customer care.

I seem to have a problem with the home button of my 6S. There is a second click now when I press the home button. Basically it seems to have moved out of its position so when I press it there is an initial depression and later on the actual button press happens. I had read about this issue earlier in this thread. Are apple still issuing new replacements or do they repair such issues? With my earlier iphone 6, I had got the phone replaced twice with brand new phones, due to the front camera having a misplaced spacer ring.

This can be easily fixed if you take it to any service center. I use the soft button which comes on when you enable assistive touch to prevent this hardware issue. I had this on my iPhone 4 and since then mainly use the assistive touch option.

I've made my iPhone 7 Plus into a dual SIM phone. I run my business Vodafone number on PIECE and it's connected with bluetooth to the iPhone and I run a Jio SIM on that for the data. I've given up on Vodafone 3G as it's very slow compared to Jio. I've had PIECE for a week now and it's working well it runs on 550mAH battery and in my use needs to be charged once in 24 hrs. It costs ₹4670 and is available online at Yerha.com. It's very small and fit's neatly into your pocket.

Dear Friends,

I recently purchased an Iphone 6s for my wife. Previously we were on Android based phones. I had backed up the messages and whatsapp on google drive prior to switching devices. How do i get the data transferred to the iPhone?

Also, what is the quickest way to transfer data from the phone to a PC? I use Windows 10 Home with iTunes, but do not see an option to copy from the phone to the PC.

Thanks for sharing interesting gadgetry, thats a great find & seems very curious accessory. For sure lack of dual sim capability on iPhone is a matter of concern to try any new operator and we cant just put enough faith in Jio yet. This info comes as interesting try for iPhone users!!

I was hesitating to purchase this device but now that it works well it surely can be considered as an option.
I purchased the dual sim Oneplus 3T for my wife and am very happy with the performance of it. I am considering selling my Iphone 6 plus and purchasing the OP3T myself mainly due to the sheer speed and performance of the OP3T. And I have the Jio sim too and am carrying around 2 iphones and finding it to be an irritation.

to the point about performance and fluidness in Oneplus3/3T.My Dad uses OP3 and its super cool phone.

But hey an iPhone is an iPhone and its always distinct, cant be described in words, and I am on iPhone cloud/wonderland!

I might consider Talkase, another product in that website! Wondering how would whatsapp react to the Jio Sim in phone and registered sim in PIECE/TALKASE. Interesting thing, @Durango Dude any pointers/help please since your are using PIECE! Thanks in advance!

JIO very much support iOS devices. I am using one on my iPhone 6S. It works perfectly. However, couldn't make WiFi calling to work though. I mean there is an option to enable Wifi calling, but its not working.

The issue with my Android phone usage is that after a year or so, the new offerings tempt me too much, because come what may, the current phone has slowed down and no new updates ever come to it. With iOs, even after 3 years, never feels the need to keep on changing my hardware. In the long run, iPhones seem economical. Been a primary iPhone user, since last 5 years. Keep an Android for office use ( and it stays in office).
