          No, nice save by you. I carry an Iphone every day, not by choice, and have for years. I have posted it in many threads. I also kick Lboy in the teeth with his Ilove in almost every phone thread.

          There is a dude at work who is also an izealot. He is probably taking vacation and standing/camping in line already for when the chInaphone 7 comes out. Every time he *****es about space, I smirk and say the same thing.

          That is hilarious.

          Yes, if you want just a few of the features of an Android, you just need to add that and a Mophie.

































          But then you are still stuck with iO$. :lmao2::lmao2::lmao2::lmao2:

            Heck, the new Note 7 can take 256gb cards. You can store all the movies on it you want.

              Meh. Not love. Just used to it. Like I said, my daughters next phone will probably be an Android, and after I wear out her 6 (which by the likes of this thread may not take long) perhaps I'll consider an Android too.

              Alright. I've fixed the wifi drop issue for the time being. Let's see if it works. Just in case some of you have the issue:

              1. I changed the iphone connection from dynamic to static in the DHCP (under IP Routing) menu in my router. I then typed in that static IP address and put in all the other info in the STATIC section of my wifi screen in my settings on the iphone.

              That fixed the drops.

              Then:

              2. I went into broadcast settings, and after much playing around, I changed it to Automatic on 2.4ghz and I chose a channel on the 5ghz. I originally tried choosing a channel on 2.4 ghz and keeping 5ghz on automatic, but after much trial and error I found that keeping 2.4ghz on automatic and choosing a 5ghz channel had the best outcomes and almost matched my laptop in download speed. Running about 75 on download.

              3. The Speedtest App from Ookla always had me at about 25 download and 15 upload. I used a different app called SpeedSmart and it actually fluctuated as a I made changes. I think this app is waaaay more accurate.

              Looks like the Ookla app is working properly for some reason now. I get about 70 download (5s) and my wife is getting about 85 upload(6s).
