No, absolutely fine - wasn't going to bother updating so soon but my instagram wasn't working @ the weekend so I moved to 7 and it sorted it and I've got no complaints whatsoever.

Got the 5S this afternoon, really like it.

Anyone got any advise on insurance? Don't want to upgrade my bank account just for phone cover and obviously not going to pay £12.50 a month with O2.

Used protect your bubble for the first year on my 4S and then didn't bother for year 2 - might do the same this time, £7.99 though - bit trumpy imo.

Actually only £6.50 a month to upgrade my Barclays current account so that should do. Unless my business account already includes it.

there is now a drag on the iphone, like a 3 second delay when texting and unlocking the phone

how do i resolve this? - i have done the usual tricks to but still lagging

is this a common problem?


If the mentioned phone is not an iPhone 5 or 4s then the lag is to be expected as the processors are not up to scratch. The sad part is once you upgrade to IOS7 it is not possible to downgrade anymore.

Hope this helps.

Phone insurance is a con. I never buy it, if you break/lose your phone you're stupid but not as foolish as the fool who buys mobile phone insurance.

Can't you get Apple Care? £79.99 when bought with the phone and extends warranty to 2 years and covers 2 incidents of accidental damage. Not sure how much it is if you buy it after the phone.

This is how I have thought in the past, but I am in and out of a van all day for work and the amount of times I have dropped my blower I am very surprised the screen has never shattered.. It's bound to happen one day.

Do you need an amex card to qualify for that cover Homer?

I got it with Natwest, smashed a phone and got a replacement within 2 days, i was really surprised, thought it would get rejected. £50 excess but well worth it.

Anyone had an il bussetto case for a while? Got one from caliroots a couple of months ago and it's already falling apart, pretty terrible considering the price.

Anyone know why the 5s won't remember my bluetooth hands free? I have to 'forget this device' and re-pair every time I switch the headset off and back on.. Pain in the arse. 4s had no problems, just linked straight back up evry time.

Sorry for hijacking your question Ruben, but as you actually own one of the new phones what's the battery life like on yours? thanks

Seems the same as my 4s to me mate, I was gassing on it for 4 or 5 hours today and it had drained to 20% by 4:30 this afternoon (I start the day @ 4:15am with a full charge).

got my 32gb 5s today. Never had a decent phone in my life, always had beaters. Dropped my phone in a tin of paint last week so not sure if this is a good idea or not. Do people here use screen protectors etc?

Laughing out loud Just a heads up, bill - a screen protector ain't gonna protect the phone from a tin of Dulux, Dusted Fondant emulsion.

I don't bother with screen protectors these days bill, a few tiny scratches on my 4 after loads of abuse shows how surprisingly robust they are imo. Screen is much more responsive without them too.

I found the same on my 4s, initially used a case and screen protector but soon enough fucked them off.
