Multiple places said it's toast. Makes me glad I haven't rewired my life around a phone.I’ve had samsung and lg phones brick. First time I’ve heard of an iphone bricking. If there is an apple store nearby I’d give them a chance to fix it. In the mean time the iphone SE lists for $399.
Does anyone actually do that? Rewire their life around a phone??Multiple places said it's toast. Makes me glad I haven't rewired my life around a phone.
I was trying to write small limited app to copy photos etc. from iPhone to PC but it just isn’t that easy. It works but not what I was hoping for. Does anyone know if android to PC is an easier communication route?
Thank you DSOP I am downloading now.

I'm a bit like a perspective museum. All I use my phone for is talking and texting, so if it were to go out, I wouldn't be locked out of certain important life things, like payment modes, etc. Remember when phones were more ornamental than load bearing?Does anyone actually do that?

But if one did that - or even just simply used it a lot for many things - phone, camera, music player, GPS, electronic calendar, email access and web browsing - and then found they'd jumped into the swimming pool to retrieve something and neglected to take said phone out their pocket. Having that phone be an iPhone with its auto-iCloud back-up capability would make it as easy as getting a replacement, signing in in order for all of their data, apps and set-up to be fully restore.
Not that I've ever done anything like that, of course...
Yes - it's cool - just different perspectives. For me, it's not about it being a hard time without - it's just easier with. That's kind of the beauty of this level of interconnectivity - I don't have to check my email from my phone, but I can. Same with everything else the phone can - I don't have to do anything with... including answer it. Which I don't 99% of the time...I'm a bit like a perspective museum.

If someone would have a hard time going two days without their phone (much less an hour, for some) then again from my perspective, I'd say their life has been rewired around a single device. The same way my life is wired around A/C, vehicular transportation, and hops.
I find it rewarding to leave my phone at home when I run errands, or when I hit the road for multi-day backpacking trips. "The world can wait; this is *my* g/d trip! Sorry sweetie, I wasn't talking to you. Yes, I'll check in from the ranger station's land line." True story.
