  1. Except for the simple fact that it still continues to affect people and their solution is a new phone prone to the same issue. And Apple refuses to address what causes the issue and the issue itself. If that's all good for you just hope it doesn't affect your phone.
  2. The fix that Apple is offering is a replacement refurbished iPhone 7 for $300+
  3. Source: https://www.macrumors.com/2018/12/17/iphone-7-microphone-defect/ The iPhone 7 was released in September 16, 2016, making this phone just over two years old. However many iPhone 7s have been made mostly obsolete at no fault of the owners due to a major malfunction that has taken away all ability to use the microphone (for calls, facetime, etc.) Apple's only current solution is to offer a refurbished iPhone 7 replacement to customers for over $300 with no guarantee that the replacement won't come down with the same issue. Prior to that Apple offered free repairs for just 2-3 months between May to July 2018. It's still not completely clear whether this is a software or hardware issue though some people claim that updating (to iOS later than 11.3) caused the issue. It still remains a problem after the newest iOS 12.1.1 update. Apple's document then provided troubleshooting steps for its service providers to follow, including disconnecting any Bluetooth headsets or accessories connected to the iPhone. If the issue persisted, and the iPhone was out-of-warranty, Apple advised service providers to "request a warranty exception" with the company. For a short time, Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers were able to proceed with repairs at no cost to the customer. The exemptions abruptly ended in July of 2018, though, when Apple deleted its internal document related to the microphone issue and prevented free repairs from being processed through its service portal. Since then, many Apple retail and support employees have refused to acknowledge the policy ever existed. The original article about the issue and Apple's acknowledgement of the issue in May 2018: https://www.macrumors.com/2018/05/04/apple-aware-of-iphone-7-mic-issue-ios-11-3/

    I need a phone for $200

    Do you know where they bought it? And have they experienced any screen ghosting?

    I need a phone for $200

    Replacing the battery is a huge pain in the ass (need to heat the glue) and has a good chance of damaging the OLED display. And I'm not exactly sure what the problem is with the battery as it went from being totally normal with good life (it's a 3500 mAh) to dying right when I unplug it. So it might be a completely unrelated hardware issue.

    I need a phone for $200

    I love my S6 active but the battery is wrecked and it dies instantly. I can't afford a new phone rn being a college student and all so I'm looking for a used phone in the $200 price range with a decent battery and good features. Right now I'm thinking LG V20. But was wondering if there are other options that I haven't thought about.
  7. Been away from PCs for a while. Just need the best 250 gig SSD for the price for an OS nothing amazing.
  8. Anyone ever installed power door locks on a car with factory manual locks? I'm looking to do it on an 07 Corolla with factory keyless only for the driver's door. So I assume it already has the reciever and alarm and lights wired so I don't need to wire that stuff.

    Any advice on losing weight?

    This is all you need to know bro:
  10. Am I the only who would really like a Camry XSE they look sweeeeet
  11. That's like the difference between Taco Bell and a nice restaurant. They'll both fill you up but they're not really even competing with each other. The Aston is a more special car than a Corvette.
  12. 2018 V8 Vantage: 500 hp around 150k, I think it beats all of the competition around its price.
