Error(50) is generally a hardware issue, where the solder ball connects of the baseband IC are damaged, and hence the baseband(radio/network) part of the firmware cannot be flashed.
Go through this thread for some desi style solutions you can try (provided you have the heart to try).

Thanks for your quick reply. Will do the needful. The phone had a fall before I stopped using it, so yes there must be some hardware issue.

I don't agree with the obscene price that is being rumoured for the special edition phone! Essentially what Apple is doing is keeping the price of the flagship high like the previous generation and the device where they are essentially catching up with the competition and its standards, then that phone will be priced even higher!

That is pure greed if the rumoured prices are correct and find that totally unethical.

As someone who is highly appreciative of the company and its products, I say this with sadness, but it is the truth !

Meaning of unethical is unscrupulous, dishonourable etc. Pricing of the phone has nothing to do with it my friend.

Apple like any business is free to price their products however they please, it's up to the people to accept or reject. Judging by their phenomenal sales it's easy to understand what people think.

Cheers

One android feature I am missing in my iPhone is the ability to search for keywords from the sms messages. Is there any way to do this ?

Besides what Sanjay posted, what you can also do is - Home Screen--->, swipe down from top on the home screen --->you have a Search text box there. Type the key word and it throws up from different areas of your phone ( SMS included )

Made the move to iPhone nearly a year ago after a series of Nexus'. Quite happy with the decision so far, may upgrade to one of the new launches this year.

However,I miss a couple of features from android, so was wondering if there's any way around these:
  • Number display for incoming calls of contacts. It only shows the name and home/mobile so on. I'd like to see the actual number
  • Vibrates in ear during calls if I get any whatsapp messages/mails. How do I disable this during calls.
  • Call-log is too short, saves details upto a week or so. Is there a way to increase this to say a month
  • Finally, Wi-fi once connected doesn't indicate if I have no/bad connectivity. In android a exclamation mark appears incase there's a issue

Im not sure of the rest, but for the call logs. The older entries are not deleted, but just not visible. Only last 100 entries are visible. Delete the upper ones of you really have to see the entries at the bottom.
Not a very good solution, but a workaround.

Rather than the products, i love the way it was presented. Be it the Ads or the live demo. On the other note, Samsung Note 8 launch was dud since its just a S8+ with a stylus. They had a humongous screen which could have been utilized much better to market their flagship.

Back to Apple, i love the way iPX is built and the fluid iOS 11. Eye popping was the Face ID.

Can some one confirm if the fingerprint scan is removed from it? If yes, how does the Apps make use of authentication, face ID?

Note: This post is not about bashing since i own an S7 Edge and 6+
