Mistake, used this when mine was new - survived a few big falls. Protector can get a bit tatty after 5-6 months though

Do you just pop it on the contactless like like card? Also did you have to get the latest iOS forcit to work? I still don't have the option to add card in passbook.

Tempered glass screens have saved my iphone and ipad screens recently, essential.

Tempered glass protector not great on iphone 6 due to the curved edges. Means it doesn't fit to the edges properly and looks off.

Only gripe is since they've updated the Music app, which allows you to tune into Beats 1 and sign up to their new music service, they've removed "Home Sharing" at the same time. This means you can no longer stream music from your MacBook/iMac to your iOS devices. Apparently this is only temporarily though…

i've broken 3 screens in as many months, despite having a case on.
starting to cost me a small fortune….

Best case I have had, perfect to avoid knocks and bumps but maybe not as robust as you need

What's the best way to do international data? I'm on giffgaff with no data package but think having data while away for 3 weeks in Singapore and Australia might be useful.

Have I read this Three All In One SIM correctly, for £15 I get unlimited data in Australia? I see there's a 25GB cap, what's that in real terms? All I'll be using it for is checking apps from time to time while away from our accommodation.

Have any BT customers here used the Telstra WiFi through the Fon network in Australia? Seems like decent coverage.

Can't you just buy a local SIM? That's what I usually do. Downside is that your UK phone # isn't reachable, but whatsapp etc will still work on your old number even when switching SIMs.

Yup, but it's going to be All in one 20 as of 19th August - they've upped it to £20.

All the benefits you get in the UK, abroad.
