James,

So you could only update to IOS 9 is as far as it updated, you might not be able to use Apple’s replacement battery  though.  I think this offer is for those who updated to IOS 10 because that is when people started having issues with the battery slowing down the phones.  You might still want to talk to Apple about how much it might cost to replace the battery though.

Hmmm, this might be potentially interesting.  I guess I will give Apple a call later today.

 

However, my IPod Fifth Generation might be too old to qualify.  And, the last version of IOS 9 is as far as it can be updated.

 

Thanks for the thought,

 

James B

James,

Did you update to IOS 11.1.5? Did you hear about the Apple battery replacement program?

I am on my second IPod that now has a battery that will not hold a charge.  This is absolutely the very very last expensive toy that I will ever buy unless the battery is user replaceable.

 

As far as you placeing take out orders from beyond,  order me a steak with a loaded baked potato with salad of course, and send me your tomb stone’s address.

 

Now, cash in soon, I’m getting hungry. *smile

Ileni, I don't know if phones out of Germany get locked to specific carriers
in that country.  As for me, I always buy UNLOCKED phones; as such, my
phones travel the world with me and even in Frankfurt, I had NO PROBLEMS
broadcasting off a phone I tied to my belt as I alighted from the Wide Body
767! 

And, yes, without a doubt, phones for U.S. markets MUST MEET a number of
specifications; it's a reason why sometimes we hardly get enough for our
bucks!  Example:  If I were in South Korea, I can get a Samsung S8 with
128GB internal storage space and I can still stick in an SD card for
additional storage expansion.  I don't have such a luxury right here at
home, at least not yet!  Well, may be with the iPhone?  I don't fish in
Apple land, so there goes my luck!

If I get a Shiny Android toy with that much internal storage space,
honestly, I won't bother about getting a new toy phone for a long, long
time. 

Whilst at it, how about sharing my thoughts on my ideal Shiny Android phone
toy?  1TB or more internal storage space, 8GB RAM or more, and a slot for up
to 2TB SD Card, 5,000 or more mAh battery, removable preferred!  If it's
boot loader is locked, I shall ROOT it so I can always get all updates to
the OS installing a different ROM.  Then I won't need another toy for the
rest of life!  I'll only remember to tell everyone to make sure my phone is
in my pocket or next to my pillow as I lay in my casket; that way, if I need
some French fries, I can grab it and make a quick call to someone who'd
consider bringing some by and lay them on my tombstone!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
