    let them if one has no iPhone or smartphone, if they want, they have other ways to find you...who knows, maxbe there is a chip built in already in your new Nike sneakers. and when you come back from jogging you find advertisements for shower gel, deo, or new jogging suits on your computer? or the chip is so smart, if you run with your dog, it dedects that as well.and you get -new improved Chappy- on your screen as well....

    Yes, I tried to fix my friend's cracked I-phone screen. The phone case would not open, so I got the special tools on Ebay, but they did not work either.

    I would think it is possible to get access to Root on the phone, and re-program it so it prevents outsiders from gaining access to your phone, but that just seems to make it more open for unfriendly invasion. With Root, it is supposed to put you, the owner of the device, in total control of your own device, but no... There seem to be spyware and stalkerware apps you can use to get rid of intruders...

    I just don't use the thing very often. It sits in my car, and if my car breaks down, then I use it to call for help.

    I was looking at "xiamio" and it didn't make sense. Sorry to be picky...

    Interesting,.,.."xiaomi" means "millet", or some sort of grain. "xiao" ()
    means "little" and "mi" () is "rice." "Xiaomi" 小米- -> "Small Rice" and the name of this Red Chinese corporation.

    Founded by former execs from Motorola and Google R & D, who "borrowed" designs, concepts, inventions and profitable products from the West, the typical Red Chinese method of "innovation".

    the Chinese made them just a $$$ offer they can't refuse. and why not. they are gluing together stuff for everyone. now they do it for their own pockets. good for them.
    same with German cars, goes the same way.
    There the guy though said openly,well in Germany i had reached my official retirement age. and was -let go - by the company. But i did not feel old and still feel useful and want to work. On top of it, the money i get here is cash and not being taxed anywhere...
    and o na lighter sideline. i went back to Austria, it is now many years back.Got a good job offer, flight back and there paid,hotel paid there.... that were my condition in my CV,which also amongst other things states my age...MONEY was to be discussed there.
    When i told them what i earned around the world as Executive Chef, and on what conditions,they got the first shock.
    The other conditions, normal all over the world, - no way we will pay for it-.
    and finally well you're 42,we have an age till 40 for this job.
    i told them nicely thank you didnt you read my CV.. could have saved you a lot of time and money... and never went back to Austria to ,except for a visa or vacation.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    Xiaomi, and china in general, is way ahead of america in embracing tech and tech lifestyle. Xiaomi makes great phones that are cheap and powerful.

    My xiaomi phone from a few years ago is better than the iphone 10 and the one from last year is better than the 12. And at half the cost.

    And has apple even tried to come out with a foldable phone yet? Here is a concept from xiaomi from a long time ago....
