So one of my close friends is visiting The US of A sometime soon, so I was thinking of getting a refurbished iPhone XS from reputed websites like gazelle.com.

Any suggestions? Might even go for iPhone 11 in that case if it's costing around 30K.

P.S: An iPhone XS 256 GB Silver is costing $294 on gazelle.com which falls bang into my budget and hence my first choice. Might as well get a fast charger + AirPods bundled instead of going for iPhone 11 128 GB variant which is $409.

Yes get the XS over the 11 anyday, the latter doesn’t get an OLED display and has thicker bezels, also no stainless steel sides.

Is it a good idea to replace battery on the IP7 through cashify? They are charging ~1800/- and will visit the residence for the repair. Any thoughts?

Personally I’d stick to Apple refurbished as they give you a new body + new battery and even a 6 month warranty.

I got my iPhone XS 256GB space grey at 25K from cell buddy few months back , i was very much sceptical for this purchase considering mixed reviews about them, i still decided to go ahead as I was hell bent on XS and was pretty much prepared for the worst.

Surprisingly i got a mint condition phone(they call it ‘open box’) which i have zero complaints about , not a single scratch, no repairs , battery health at 90% , even the box is with the same IMEI.

Apparently, components from at least six countries are involved in the putting together of an iPhone.

This typically happens due to bad network. Try Wi-Fi calling if the network quality is bad, that should solve this in most cases.

At present, only Airtel and Jio supports VoWiFi. So that's something to be noted.

I continuously faced this last night, did a reset (volume button up then low, followed by keeping the power button pressed) hope it solves this.

Is not a network issue as I was at a place with good network, my friend was calling me from downstairs and I was on the 3rd floor (both on Jio, both on iPhones).

Coming back to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iOS still remains a hurdle. Apparently, the method mentioned by Meta is still under Beta program and not available to all public (one can not join Beta as is as Beta program is full).
So, paid option it is. Can you guys please suggest some nice way to transfer Whatsapp data to iOS form Android without selling my kidney? As I mentioned earlier, for my wife whatsapp transfer is life or death situation.

BTW, nice to find an iPhone made in India.
