well, half kidding: The seller is a Windows re-furb/reseller; prolly never checked the iPhone passed acknowledging that it turned "ON".. so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt that it wasn't intentional.
The iPhone is defunct (I did bring it to the AT&T store yesterday morning on the way to our traditional Memorial Day Bar-B-Que)
It failed all their attempts to Activate too, and I was advised to return it to e-Bay ASAP. (I just contacted the seller to get an RFA#)
The guyze @ AT&T took pity on us and UpDated our iPhone(s)3Gs to iPhone(s)5s AND Account which brought down the monthly cost by $40 per month... ...AND Tossed in TWO New LG Mini Tablets (ANDROID)
Judas Priest! Talk About "A LEARNING CURVE"!!!
Ted's in there SCREAMING @ Me about it being "MY F'n FAULT" for trying to replace his busted phone while I'm trying to locate & download & read PDFs
QUESTION: ANDROID, huh? What have I gotten myself into? ...does this thing have the potential of becoming A VIRUS TRAP?
I've been blissfully using Apple products since 1989 without any consideration for Anti-Virus BS since Norton 2.3 (..er sumsuch)
Never understood the switching sim cards thing. I thought we all went over that in here some time ago. Not necessary and creates more problem than it solves. It's less about the data that is on it and more about the card ties you to the carrier.
