I paid B14,900 which at the time = £335, whereas on Amazon in the UK it was £459 - this is for the 64GB non-cellular version.

Like a lot of things, I’m sure that some will be cheaper some more expensive, so best to check first.
Seems to be a hell of a deal, fair play and good to know :thumb:

As to my issue with the Lenovo, I've just "revisited" things and have found a way via a "Micro SD Card" rather than external storage. Have to say, I have a preference with Android over iOS, but then again the LHG has an iPad and loves it!!

Apple obviously work on the principle of getting you hooked and then keeping you - I’m not really into having the biggest and latest versions of anything, but having an iPad and iPhone, everything is linked and virtually everything on one device is mirrored on the other so it makes life easier, especially for the older fraternity Image

As a member of the older fraternity I have an iPhone, iPad and MacBook. Despite enjoying their reliability and general user friendliness I prefer Microsoft by a large margin for work applications leaving my interconnected gadgets for play.

Best place for battery replacement in old iPhone?

Hi!

I have an old iPhone that needs a battery replacement. Can anyone recommend a gode shop for this? In MV third floor, there's a gazillion places, but it's hard to know if which to choose. And I guess that MV isn't the only place for this kind of service.

There’s an Authorised Apple dealer a bit further along from the Banana IT shop on the 3rd floor that provides a replacement battery service - obviously more expensive than the stalls, but no doubt you get what you pay for!!
