It is not really what I came to school to learn, but I have been picking up some interesting stuff. The guys I am rooming with are comp sci students who are a couple of years older than me. I just lucked into the place. I was getting desperate thinking that I was going to end up stuck living in the dorms for another semester. At any rate this guy I asked sent me here. He came with me and brought an iPad which he was going to try to jailbreak iOS 8 on. I was waiting around to see if he was going to introduce me and I realized that these guys are totally strange. I did not really care at the time and it is not strange in the scary way. They are like the characters from a situation comedy it seems. I mean they are really over the top computer nerds.
I kept my old smartphone when I got a new one. I had no idea that it was actually worth some money. I found out when I asked someone if I should sell my cell phone or not. I had kept it in an armored case since I bought it brand new. I still had the box and all of the original paperwork. I reset the phone back to factory settings, and it looked brand new when I put it back in its original box. The screen and the housing were pristine. They did not have a scratch on them. It turns out that my particular smartphone was still in high demand.
I got a good amount of money for my old smartphone when I looked online.
I found this iphone in my truck a week ago and realized that it belonged to this guy I know. He told me that he had already gotten another phone and this one was not working correctly either. At any rate I have been fooling with it for a couple of reasons, neither of which are all that important in the short term. I am going to try to downgrade iOS8 to an earlier operating system just because I want to see how it is done. I think that the operating system on the phone is corrupt based on reading stuff off of the internet and trying to figure it out is something I want to learn how to do.
I had a really cheap phone while I was at college. In fact it was worthless for the most part unless I was near a computer or a wi fi system that was free. In fact that was my whole plan. I did not have the money to pay twenty or thirty pounds a month on my mobile phone plan, so I was using wi fi and a Google talk program, which only requires a headset, a computer and access to the internet. I am going to get a cheap sim for your tablet or phone now though. I found a used phone from this girl I knew. She has a couple of old phones actually, in fact she is one of those people who always has her phone in her hands or at her ear and she is always on the bleeding edge of technology.
