Is Apple deliberately slowing your iPhone?

Gosh it's been a long time since I saw any of those films.  Weren't they brilliant?   :laugh:

Some were.  From what I recall, the last one or two didn't quite hit the mark.  But Sellers as Clouseau was such a great character.

Why on earth anyone would buy an iPhone is beyond me.  ???  A decent Android phone can do a lot more, for a fifth of the price.

... except sync with iTunes.  Unfortunately, since I fell into the Apple trap, that's become essential.   :bawl:

Three days ago my Samsung Galaxy S3 decided it would download and upgrade to Android 4.3.  Ever since, using the phone has been like swimming through treacle.  Just be careful out there, eh?
