iPhone5 fell from 15Floor to BASEMENT and still WORKING
We were heading home, when I asked my husband to go back to my office to get the medicines I left on my desk. On his way down, he pulled out his iphone5 from his jeans pocket so he can call to inform me that the meds were not there. When he took it out, it slipped through his hands and fell right through the elevator hole from the 15 floor straight to the building basement. He rushed to the basement to retrieve the phone, all too scared to think on what he might be finding there. When he got to the basement, he saw the phone broke in two pieces with the LCD although not broken got detached from the back case. He tried turning on the phone and voila! The phone turned on and was in fact receiving text messages. He tried calling a number and surprisingly it dialed and the call went through. He tried opening an app, and it opened with no problem. I was just so amazed that instead of feeling hopeless I felt happy knowing that it was still working despite the fall from that height. When I got home, I read the warranty service from apple and from the carrier where we got the phone from and unfortunately incident like this is not covered under the warranty. So we decided to contact a third party repairer and had the phone checked , and was surprised to know that what we only need to replace the back case since it got badly broken and that there really is no problem with the other features of the phone except for the front camera which stopped working. But that really is not much of our concern, since we are not really into selfies (hehe). The fact that the phone is still working after that unintentional EPIC drop test is more than a relief to us. I can now therefore say that getting the phone was the best decision we made otherwise we could be back into getting another cheap phone by now and it could have been another pain in our budget.

iam a business man really good actually bored with all kinds of smartphones finally friend sugessted me to go for apple any kind .very happy with this but anybody suggest me for any apps availble for tally to view on this apple 5
Best smartphone i've ever had. The important things are not the monster specs but the user experience and iOS was great and simple also very efficient
I am a person that easily get bored with phones... i switch my phone almost every month...from Blackberries, Samsungs, Lumias,... never satisfied, even only the next day after i bought them i already felt bored... but not with this iPhone 5, i think i'll stop changing my phones for a while now, it's a great phone, great design, and it's an apple iphone, yes it's not perfect with flaws here and there, but i think this is the best phone i got so far. Never look back on Androids and Blackberries now.

... moreWait, again, you exposed your foolishness, thinking that the S4 has a better battery life because of it's battery, do me a favour now, go to the S4 page and look at all the people commenting about how bad the battery is! It's the system as a whole that counts, and the iPhone system as a whole is better, faster, smoother, has better battery life, and less prone to problems than that of an S4. Go carry on with the spec sheet now, and don't think about real life applications, when you turn 18 and get a job, or don't, then you can worry about real life.
Back to kiddies corner for you, run along!
good-looking , but not a tough one . i broke it once when i put it in my side pocket and sit down , and my pants were so tight . then , the screen turned to green and purple . the next day , a big-black-dot appeared on the screen , next to the sim slot , and it's bigger day by day :( after all , the touch-screen'd gone crazy . i took it to apple store in Singapore , and luckily they changed it to a refurbished one .

Navi, 08 Dec 2013Hi Guys!,
1. Do I Need Money/Credits from my Bank to Buy the Apps
2. How Can i insert my s... moreHello,
1)No, you can use your credit card, or you can buy Apple gift cards with money pre-loaded onto them them and redeem them on the store. Go to an iStore or other selected places to get these.
2)On the right had side, on the side, there is a small discreet slot, it has a tiny hole, you can use a paper clip to open it, put sim-card in and close.The slot does not come out completely, just enough for your sim, which must be a NANO sim-card. Do not cut your simcard to make it smaller, just go to your service provider and get a sim swap to a Nano sim.
3)Yes you can.
4)Set up Apple ID, go into App store, you can download free ones, or paid ones. When you set up Apple ID and they ask for payment option, say none! Unless you want it to keep your credit card info online and take cash off whenever you buy an App, in that case choose a credit card. The best way to do this to save Data is to take the cable you use for charging, take the adapter off, and then plug the USB into your PC, and the other side into your phone. Then download iTunes off the web, and download apps through it that way. When you have downloaded ones you want, click 'sync' and it will automatically load them to your phone. In the top right had corner you will have a bar that says iPhone, use this to move between the phone and itunes. When you are finnish, click 'done, and then click the iPhone bar, top left, and the PC will eject your phone. Your phone will carry on charging, but itunes won't pick it up anymore until you re-plug it in. You can also leave your phone in your PC to keep charging, or plug it back into it's adapter and into the wall to keep charging.
5)Yes, again, manage this through iTunes, in fact go now and download itunes off the internet before you start any of these operations. just google, itunes downlaod free, and you'll find one, :).
6)iTunes is technically a media player interface, but it's actually much more that. It's the connection, between your phone and your laptop, and it's also the interface on which you manage your phone when it's plugged into your laptop. If you put songs or movies or pictures from your laptop to your itunes and then sync it, it will send that stuff to your phone. Also your phone has iCloud, which means it can sync over the air. Syncing is making what you have on itunes the same as whats on your phone. You can adjust all of these in settings. I personally have iCloud off, except for a few things, not itunes however.
7) iTunes has lots of uses, like I said, its a means of accessing the appstore via your pc, and it's also a way of managing your phone via your pc, also you can do a backup of your phone's data to your pc ( I recommend doing this in case you need to do a hard reset at any point.)
I hope this helps, remember, this isn't Star Wars, your phone seems very weird, and it is, especially if you've never had Apple before, but once ou make friends with it, it will be amazing, if you need any other advice or help about anything, just reply to this message.
I hope all goes well. :)

i had many phones , but this one is perfect . it still runs every app perfect with dual core with no lag at all and you can open many apps is still fluent, so it is not like whats written on the paper is reality . for example i had samsung s3 which has a better cpu and it had low performances when it came about asphalt 7 after playing like 1/2 hour
