So my family member is visiting me in the USA for a few months and we went to a phone service provider to find out about non-contract options. They tested the phone to see if it would work on their network and to test they reset the phone number. Now when we try to switch the phone back to the original phone number we can get any verification texts or calls since we are not in the service area of the original number. Is there a another way to change this number back while still in the USA? Phone is an Iphone 6.

Would really appreciate any help.

I just started iOS development with my company after 5 years of doing Android. Swift is pretty nice. Anyway, why do all of my development tools suck? Even AppCode is ass compared to Android Studio. How is it possible Apple treats their developers like shit? Storyboards are retarded, app submission is tedious, cost to start up is ridiculous, stacktraces maybe 50% of the time, no real file structure to speak of, unreadable project files that cause merge conflicts at the slightest opening of the file, fowl language misuse from the API's... I could go on forever at the horrible design decisions deliberately made by Apple here.

I've used android, wp, ios and symbian.
Never getting back into android.
I need suggestions for a new phone, no way in hell I'm buying the iPhone X, it looks trash, not into gestures and but if they have a decent release soon I'll stick with ios.

Now my biggest interest is back to WP, I know its obsolete but idgaf, I'm not a gearwhore I just want something with decent battery life and build, with the ability to do the basics like internet browsing, music and texts. L920 was so bad, I had to get mine replaced 3 times for either dusty camera, overheating and got the lcd burn at the end. BUT, it worked, software-wise it didnt bug out or lag.

Anyone still using WP and will be using it for the foreseeable future, pls post experience with the new OS's and what not and state what phone you have.

I just retired my WP because many of the apps were being retired and the camera stopped focusing and the camera was generally obsolete anyway.

I miss the operating system so much though. The email and calendar were better than ios. The whole tile interface is much cleaner and convenient than my new iphone. Plus my wp had removable battery and memory slots, wireless charging and you didn't need a cover or case since the actual body was enough protection. I just feel it was a superior design but without support or modern processors and camera they won't hold up as well.

I'm guessing it's a gift. The camera seems decent, combination of that screen and battery as well and you seem to know what's wrong with the hardware. You might want to look into last year's A5 if it has comparable price, that one had better internals IIRC and was waterproof.

- Sometimes I have needed to restart because the SD card doesn't register. Then no matter how many restarts I need to plug/unplug to get it to register again
- Australian adapter they sent me makes some sparks when I put it into the socket, doesn't snap to the socket like it should

Really curious about those, but I'll likely be disappointed. If the leaks are true, the SE will be deprecated and if they are not, it'll likely be notched on dongled.

But my main reason to come here, is to inquire about multitasking. So I'm looking for a new phone to replace my aging blackberry (5 years old, just got an OS update last week, but the H is stuck and the browser can't keep up with the (((modern))) web anymore… sad) and so I played around with the gfs android (some 2yo Sony thing).
How the hell do I switch on multitasking on that piece of shit? And more importanly, why would anyone switch that off by default?
As soon as I open more than 2 apps, the third one stays in that stupid multasking card deck, but if I bring it back into the foreground it reloads (browser) or just stalls with a black screen for a few seconds until it's back.
W
T
F
My Q10 with like 10% of that fuckers RAM and CPU power can keep 6 apps running without problems, probably more, but I don't need more, but only 2? No fucking way.

so how do I turn on multitasking and is the iphone better?

recording in places where music is loud.. to show light shows and stuff like that.. iOS devices seem to have some kind of dynamic compression which works fine.. android devices seem to record everything too loud.. so if the volume surpasses certain level (not even very loud in my experience) they start distorting like crazy, I don't know if this has to do with hardware or just the way android devices record video.. will see if I can get an HTC to test out. I have had samsung phones, huawei, redmi.. tp-link.. just can't get them to record video without distorting like crazy when something is just a little bit louder, which doesn't happen with the iOS devices I have had.

>> No.67549570

>>67549405
No, it isn't. Often times your device needs to be decrypted for this to work, but performing encryption again is fairly easy and your internal storage will be password protected. Also, you will be able to install custom ROMs which are open source (no security risk there). Many manufacturers don't support this, because of security holes and exploits they might've chosen to exploit, etc. The process of unlocking the bootloaders doesn't void warranty on Xiaomi devices.

My LG G4 is dying and I'm looking for a flagman-tier replacement to last 2-3 years.

The most important things are:
>Dual active sim.
>Vanilla or not too bloated Android with OTA support for at least 2 years, major updates no latter than a month or two from release
>USB-C with QQC
>Length/height no longer than 150mm

Desirable:
>Would really prefer a 5" phone, but nobody fucking makes them at flagman spec anymore.
>A-GPS, Barometer, GLONASS
>Knock to activate or fast fingerprint scanner for the purposes of unlocking
>Not chinkshit

1+6 almost fits everything, but from what I understand 6T is around the corner, should I expect anything better?
Also, 1+6 is still not active 2sim and has proprietary crap fast charging instead of widespread proprietary crap fast charging.

Will be buying it a month or two from now, anything upcoming I should be keeping my eye on?

I feel kinda mixed. It gets both awesome and absolute shit points.
Updates stopped a year from release which sucked and LG software isn't particularly good.
I got the notorious bootloop bug when it fucking randomly bricked on the last day of warranty. Had it shipped to a service center and repaired.
The display quality and knock-to-unlock were gamechangers for me. So were QQC and 2sim, but those aren't really LG innovations.
The camera was fantastic, but looks like it either aged or displaying planned obsolescence. It can't do night photos anymore.
Liked the changeable covers, I had 4 through its lifetime keeping the phone fresh. But the seam on its back and convex shape made it a nightmare to use it while it's lying on a table.
Aside from bootloop and hardware tear it served me good though, it's still doing well as far as performance goes. I'm still thinking maybe I should repair the microUSB, get a new battery and keep using it for another year.

Exynos is faster only in benchmarks, in real life tests it performs worse and is less efficient than the SD845
https://www.anandtech.com/show/12520/the-galaxy-s9-review/

>Ever since we first heard about the Exynos 9810 we had very large expectations and we knew there would be some tangible differences between Exynos and Snapdragon variants. The expectations couldn’t be more shattered than the results we got. While the Snapdragon 845 variant of the Galaxy S9 performed largely as advertised and as we had been told to expect by Qualcomm, the Exynos 9810 failed to live up to its hype in real-world scenarios. Effectively, the Exynos 9810 variant and as evidenced by all the data we collected, is the slower variant of the two. The root cause here has been identified as the extremely conservative scheduler and DVFS mechanisms which essentially nullify any advantage the new M3 cores have in synthetic benchmarks.
>In 3D benchmarks, the Exynos 9810 posted very healthy efficiency improvements and even sometimes managed to catch up to last year’s Adreno 540. Qualcomm’s new Adreno 630 raises the bar in terms of peak performance, however the promises of increased efficiency have not materialised in the commercial hardware as the performance boost comes at a cost of increased power. Effectively, when looking at sustained workloads, the Snapdragon 845 isn’t any faster than the Snapdragon 835 in its GPU department. Fortunately for Qualcomm, they’re still in the lead and this is not a deal-breaker for the Galaxy S9.
>While the performance advantage of the Snapdragon 845 variant over the Exynos 9810 variant is something we could live with, the battery life results of the Exynos is definitely a deal-breaker. I’m not sure of the root cause here and whether it’s something that can be fixed by software, but showcasing such a battery runtime regression over its predecessor is universally something that we can all agree on as not acceptable for a flagship device.
