I am a little bit of a gadget junkie so a cool phone was mildly important. Maybe they vary from city to city but the customer service and tech support at the store I visited was far superior to anything I have received from AT&T. Leave a comment below or submit a more thorough review to [email protected]!Misplaced brand loyalty – or brand disloyalty as it sometimes manifests itself – is a game I gave up on long ago.Not wanting to wait all night long to restore my i Phone from an i Cloud backup, I backed up my i Phone 4 locally (I had still not connected to a PC, it was still displaying the “” message). Well…Faced with a dialogue box that warns of the complete removal of data from your most-relied upon device in order to sync music, quite possibly the reason you’d opt for the device in the first place, I’m confident I’m not the only person who would approach with caution.Backup worked just fine, as it does with any i Phone you connect regardless of whether it’s paired to your machine or not. From my understanding of what i Tunes was telling me, I stood to lose everything and “start again”.By far the most widespread issue affecting i Pad users is one in which they experience weak/fluctuating Wi-Fi signals, inordinately slow transfer speeds, and inability to maintain wireless connections (constant drops).
If it deletes everything on the phone I have a backup, and potentially the exact same issues once restored. No, it’s not the headache you think it might be – you can just put it back on there.I Googled for help like a consumer scorned, assuming I’d missed something obvious and there was a quick fix.Once it was all over I was left feeling like a fool.Despite the hoo-ha generated by Apple’s decision to go “i Tunes-less” with i OS 5, i Tunes is still required for a great number of tasks.Transferring media is one of the few of the shackles that continue to tether your i Device to a PC or Mac at this late stage in the game.
