Had an iphone...once. I hated the whole apple account nonsense...from day one...not being able to buy it and use it without setting it up online and having to get that stupid apple account. Made the mistake of buying some music through my apple account. Not much...but just a few pieces. I got really sick of the phone....mainly the size of it. Cleared it...did a factory reset and was about to give it to someone when I heard that your skype app or your social contact equivalent app could still be phoned even on the newly reset apple. A friend of mine sorted that out... This was an iphone 4...so it's a while ago...but I doubt I would want to have another one. I've had samsung galaxy phones since. Droppes one in the toilet last year and it's working still. Great camera...great free apps.... I've not had any problem with an sg any number. Looked at the Samsung tablets ... was thinking of gettinv one for my birthday . But I have a little 7" screen android tablet...it works fine. Also the kindle fire is great...so I'm actually not in need of one. And the sg phone has the full Microsoft suite of word, excel, powerpoint etc so I use it instead of a laptop.....quite often... Not sure it's all relevant but I think apple are quite a greedy lot...and this new development makes me think they clearly just want to make more sales.
