  1. Locked out of my iPhone.

    I actually had to factory reset in the end. It was the only way. Thankfully once I signed into my Apple ID it synced up my contacts and stuff so my phone is running great.
  2. Is 8GB of RAM Enough In 2018?

    I have 8GB and use Chrome as my main browser and it gets me by fine.
  3. Which S7 should I buy?

    One remaining question I have is - would the signal on the S6 be weaker than the S7? I plan to use it on the vodafone UK network and don't know if the signal would be as strong. Thanks, 1kv.
  4. Which S7 should I buy?

    This doesn't just benefit me financially, it also benefits me in the fact I can have a more comfortable curved display without having to worry about the pink line as much. Thank you very, very much.
  5. Which S7 should I buy?

    Thanks for the reply. Only reason why I'm buying an S7 is because the S8 and S9 are (and always will be) miles out of my price range and the S7 is a relatively modern phone that does what I want it to. I will take a look at the S6 range as they are cheaper and will probably save me even more money in the long run. I will likely buy an S6 now thanks to your suggestion.
  6. Hello. I'm thinking of buying an S7 in a few months but do not know which version to buy. I would prefer the S7 edge because it feels nicer for me, has a bigger battery and has a bigger display, but I don't want the pink line issue. I don't really want the flat S7 because it feels uncomfortable for me and has a smaller battery, but doesn't have the pink line problem. I know this post shouldn't exist and any normal person would've figured it out by now, but I can't make up my mind. If you want to know any details about what I'll use it for, how long I'll use it etc, I can. Thank you, 1kv.
  7. Locked out of my iPhone.

    Hmm, I may give that a go. Thank you all for your help!
  8. Locked out of my iPhone.

    How do you mean? I'm quite interested in that method.
  9. Locked out of my iPhone.

    I don't know, I'll look into it.
  10. Locked out of my iPhone.

    Alright, I'll see if I can get there tomorrow. Thankfully, I don't need my phone on weekends as much as weekdays though.
  11. Locked out of my iPhone.

    I really don't know. It's my fault, I had a passcode I remembered perfectly set up, but it strained my fingers a little bit after typing it in frequently so i set it to something that was easier and forgot it completely. I hope it's one of those situations which when you go to do something you forget it, and then later you realise what it was. But to be honest, I'm not too much of a good person, so I deserve this.
  12. Hello there. As the title suggests, I have forgotten my passcode and can't get into my phone. I have Touch ID set up but my phone hates me so I have to enter my passcode to enable Touch ID. This is probably pointless as this is a more computer-orientated forum, but it is worth a shot. I really want to avoid the solution of erasing my iPhone as much as possible, as I don't have a backup and have a lot of texts, contacts and other information that I can't get back off my phone. I wouldn't mind erasing if my contacts, call history, voicemails, texts, etc. were kept on my SIM card, but they aren't, annoyingly enough. Is there any other way beside the aforementioned method? Thanks, 1kv.
  13. This post should help you: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=291260.0
  14. I'd probably have to say the R5 since you can OC it unlike the 8400 but I can't guarantee anything.
  15. So I was using my PC as normal about 10 minutes ago, w my iPhone SE connected to the PC via USB. Had Chrome open at the time with probably 10-11 tabs running. I suddenly got a black screen and the USB connected/disconnected sound constantly going off at the same time as beeps. They are like the beeps you hear when someone has hung up on you, just a higher pitch. I went full crazy mode and yanked my phone out of the socket and went absolutely crazy. Then my screen recovered w no BSODs although the top and bottom corrupted by grey squares for a few seconds before completely recovering. I tried 2 YouTube videos, one from The Simpsons (which I thought may not have had sounds bcus Copyright), so I tried an LTT one and could not hear anything. Used all 3 sources (Monitor, Realtek and Realtek 2nd) and not a drop of sound came out. I'm very stuck right now. My old computer that I'm using (w the 4460) got repaired professionally so it's all good, and nothing should be wrong with it. Now, it's actually supposed to be my backup PC, just in-case. Here's the specs: i5-4460, 8GB AMD R5 RAM, Stock 2GB GTX 960, Gigabyte B85-HD3 ATX Motherboard, Generic 500W PSU that kinda works, and a crappy chinese cooler. It was a pre-built at first so don't expect miracles. TL;DR - My computer went black, corrupted screen, dead sound, my iPhone survived fine. Hopefully you could help me in my quest to hopefully fix this thing. 1kv.
