    You can organize an iPhone to have as few app icons on any screen as you want and create folders to group others.

    So they offered to repair it, then offered you $200 for it when they couldn’t, and sold you a new phone. I’m missing the part where they had you over a barrel.

    Too much Finger Ease perhaps?

    $800???? for a phone?!

    Nah, not me. I have a 3-4 year old Moto G4 that works just great. Um yeah, it was $85! There are no barrels under my head.

    Try positioning them where you want them to go.

    I have a Moto G4 too, though I bought mine new for $250 3 years ago.

    You mean holding them down until they start wiggling and dragging them where you want them?

    I use Otter cases on mine iPhones. I’ve dropped them out of a big rig before and never had any damage, and that’s probably an eight foot drop.

    Yes. The iPhone won't let you arrange them where you want. Try putting one at the top of the screen and one at the bottom. Won't work. Try putting a widget in a homescreen. Oops. Ya can't. Try programming gestures...oops another thing you can't donon an iPhone. That drive me nuts when I had one.

    There's this company called OtterBox. They make stuff for clumsy $800 phone users. You might want to check their products out. :)

    iPhone 7S user for the past 5yrs, no problems with mine and no reason to upgrade any time soon, mine is working just fine.
    Definitely recommend an OtterBox case, they're pretty much indestructible.

    My newest phone I have used every day since I got it 5 years ago. My previous two phones are still working. My old Galaxy S is in my car as a media player and my S3 is for my Marshall code and bluetooth speakers. Only problem with the old S is that the screen is so small I couldn't read the text on screen till I got new prescription glasses. Eyesight went downhill since I hit 45.

    My tennis shoes cost 30 dollars at Big-5.
    We do not have ANY type of television service.
    My amplifiers use tubes, my cameras use film, and my cellular phone was 40 dollars. It looks like this.......

    You DO NOT Need most of that B.S. that modern day society says you do.

    Don't buy a "Smart Phone".
    Better yet...leave it in a drawer for 48 hours. It's liberating.
    It will be the best 48 hours of your life. :)

    I'm on my 5th Iphone ... never had one of them break down on me. One of the most reliable products ever.

    I am still using an IPhone SE. Going as long as I can. And I have a case with it. I'm also typing this on an IPad 3. I'm too cheap to upgrade.

    I was walking to my vehicle after a market gig when I came upon an IPhone 3 on the road that had been run over by a car. The screen looked totally smashed to me but I threw it in my car anyway. I hate seeing high tech stuff just discarded to the elements - even busted TVs.

    About an hour later, to my consternation, it started ringing - its owner was looking for it.

    I peeled off the completely shattered protective glass “shield” thing and voila! - all nice and new underneath... and took the call. Phone and owner reunited later that day.

    I had no fancy phone at that time - just an old Nokia - but I was astonished by the Iphone’s durability.

    Later on I acquired an IPhone 6s which is just as tough and totally reliable. While Apple’s cultish corporate image tends to s**t me, I wouldn’t consider any other phone.

    Sad to read that that’s apparently no longer the case.

    My iPhone 6s is 4-5 years old.
    Otter case. No problems.

    You don't need an Otterbox when you use a Sonim phone,, and you get a 3 year no questions asked unconditional warranty,, and a removable battery.
