    Jumping ship

    After many problems and intrusions by Apple concerning my data allowance, I have decided to buy the Microsoft Surface 4 as soon as it comes out. If anyone has been looking elsewhere besides this forum, it has been found that Apple and it's iCloud has been a total mess. As a result, ISPs have...

    Data allowance drain again

    It happened again last night. My data allowance was completely drained by 02:00 am. Diagnostics and Data show a crash at 02:24 am. So far so good this morning, but I keep watching. I got a data refill and do not want to lose that too. This is ridiculous. As the data was draining I watched...

    icloud drive!

    My original problem was with data draining. I deleted my icloud account from my ipad and the problem went away. I was stupid and wanted to verify that it was icloud because I have emails stored in the icloud account that I need. I reactivated icloud to see if the emails were still there...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    I have turned everything off - automatic everything - background everything. Every time that my iPad 3 is plugged in and locked and on wifi my data starts draining. When I unplug it, it stops.

    Trashed emails keep coming back

    I thought that the new update this morning would fix this, but it has not. I have to trash the emails several times before they go away permanently. Especially the iCloud emails. Very annoying.

    iCloud - What a joke!

    Waited up for free download time to do iCloud backup for my iPad 3. Turned it on. Took forever to give estimated time. Finally gave estimated time for less than 1GB. 22 hours! Give me a break!

    How to delete an app forever

    There have been times that I downloaded an app and tried it and did not like it, so I deleted it. Why does iTunes continue to try to download these apps to my PC? When it starts downloading I have to delete each one - every time! This is getting tiresome. Delete means Delete - or does it?

    Creative D100 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (Black)

    Anybody have this? If so, how is it? How does it sound with just the batteries? I listen to all kinds of music and like a good bass sound as well as also hearing the highs and mids. I prefer using AA batteries so I don't have to worry about battery life. Any info would be appreciated.

    Annoying pop up looking for cellular connection

    I must have done something. All of a sudden now, my wifi gets turned off and I get the message that no cellular network can be found. I bet that I clicked the wrong thing on a pop up from Verizon asking me to sign up. The top left corner of the screen looks different also. It used to say...
