Less a question than an FYI...I didn't bother pre-ordering the phone. I went into the AT&T Store in downtown Silver Spring today after work, arriving there 5:20 or so. The store was largely empty, and I walked out with a 128GB Space Gray iPhone 6S Plus a little more than an hour later.

Does AT&T even take in-store appointments?

Probably not. That is a CDMA model of the iPhone, rather than the GSM/LTE version supported by AT&T. It doesn't support LTE or CDMA EV-DO, and it may be SIM-locked to the Chinese CDMA carrier.

If you previously synced your iPhone with iTunes on your home computer, you may have a backup there. This article on Apple's site walks you through the process.

Apple introduces a new product - their stock dips. Apple announces their quarterly earnings, which include another wildly profitable quarter that doesn't quite mean analysts' (unreasonable) expectations - their stock dips. Stock analysts are prone to the worst kind of group-think. It almost seems like they try to attribute some kind of dramatic narrative to the behavior o...

Why would the newer 5C be cheaper than the old 5? Nothing about this post makes much sense, as having 3 phones in such a narrow price range would do little except cannibalize the sales of their higher end models. Market share is not that important to Apple, especially so long as their phones continue to be wildly profitable. Linkgx1 wrote: Yeah, Apple has done some weird ...

This practice is called "phantom churn", and if not exactly forbidden it's also not exactly kosher. There's a difference between canceling a line and terminating it by porting it to another carrier, as has been explained. If I'm not mistaken, you can't cancel 1 line, start another line, and keep that same number. The only way to do that is to move the line to another carr...

I finally switched when it became cheaper to have my iPhone and my iPad on a shared plan rather than keep the plans separate. Plus, the tethering capability is nice in an emergency.

No, AT&T is not in breach of any agreement. Your phone provides you with access to their network. AT&T, like any carrier, makes no claims about the speed or uptime of their networks. The rate at which you can access the network is subject to congestion, bandwidth constraints, and imposed limitations. If you use more than 3GB with a 3G (UMTS/HSPA) phone, you get throttled....

Sorry, but it's not false advertising. Every possible usage of every type of device on that list isn't permitted under AT&T's Wireless Customer Agreement. This is straight from the WCA : AT&T’s wireless data services may not be used in any manner that has the effect of excessively contributing to network congestion, hindering other customers’ access to the network, or deg...

I don't think it has anything to do with your router. It's your computer that is infected. You can follow the instructions here , or you can call someone like the Geek Squad or a local computer tech.

Are you talking about on the face or underneath the phone? It's likely either the ambient light or the proximity sensor that appears on the white phone that doesn't appear clearly on the black phone (but it's there). There's no hardware difference in the two phones.

There are two issues here. First, the phone must be SIM-unlocked if it originally came from another carrier than AT&T. Second, it'll work on the 1900MHz frequency that AT&T uses, but you may experience large coverage gaps because AT&T uses both the 850 AND 1900MHz bands. Phones without the 850 band (and no, 900 isn't the same thing) won't work as well as a phone that nati...

T-Mobile used to allow people who brought their own phones with them to opt out of the data plan, but Sprint & Verizon require data plans just like AT&T.

The Optimus T is a smartphone. The LG web site says that it is an Android-powered smartphone. As such, it CANNOT use the data component of the $50 unlimited Go Phone plan.

Symantec & Intego both make anti-virus products for the iPhone, if I'm not mistaken. I would give a wide berth to Symantec products for Mac OS, as a buddy who worked for Symantec told me: a) their products for Mac were terrible, and b) one of the C-level executives basically said Mac OS didn't have enough market share for Symantec to do anything about it. Intego makes som...

Tethering is an additional cost, and it's not available to users with unlimited data plans. The smartphone + tethering plan is $50 for 5GB of data. Sorry, but there is no way to add tethering onto an unlimited data plan.

The major difference between the $30 & $45 unlimited plans is that the Enterprise Plan includes support for advanced functionality, like VPN, that the Personal Plan does not. As others have stated, it doesn't include hotspot functionality.
