    I had heard that once unlocked, like from the factory, an iPhone could not be re-locked. But I've been hearing lots of folks confirming that this is indeed the case. Buy unlocked, put in a GSM SIM...

    Profitable companies stay profitable by exiting businesses that don't make them money. Microsoft kept working on the Xbox for years before it was profitable, but in gaming Microsoft had a long-term...

    If you're looking for a mini-computer device, perhaps look at old Palm Pilots instead of phones. Of course it depends on the apps you want to run, but Palm Pilots are cheap and still quite capable...

    Especially with the iPhone 8 coming soon, as a first iPhone I'd recommend saving the money and getting a 6s. After shelling out $900 for an iPhone 7 you're pretty much "all in" on the iOS ecosystem....

    The lawyers made them do it. Everyone SHOULD do it - that phone is a ticking time bomb - and I was shocked to hear Verizon was going to ignore it. Verizon sold A LOT of Note7's too.
