    Right, I've tried all sorts to get this bloody YouTube playback problem sorted but nothing works. Dafuq is going on, one day it was working then out of nowhere it just doesn't do what it's supposed to do. I Googled it and many folks are having the same issue. Some people seem to think the problem is YouTube being cunty and now you need Red (whatever the fuck that is) others say it's iOS 10 at fault (it isn't). It's all so very annoying.

    You need a YouTube red subscription to do that these days.

    Or Android and splitscreen, ner ner :)

    Pikeydroid users need something to be happy about I s'pose. Other folks seem to have gotten it working again though without having to shell out money for some bullshit subscription

    I kinda found a way around this problem. Just download music from YouTube and play it. Fuck 'em and their subscription bullshit. ✊🏻

    Pikeydroid users? :D Someone's gone from not having a smartphone to typical apple fanboy in a very short period of time!

    So I bought the Xperia XA1 last week. Lovely phone, seems a lot more expensive than it is and looks sexy. Was very pleased with it until the screen lost all sensitivity around the edges.
    Took it into the shop and got told it happened because I played games to much on it. The only game I play is Clash Royale, maybe for an hour a day.

    Is this possible or is it more likely that they sold me a duff unit and they are just covering their backs?I'm scared to play games now. :(

    They swapped it anyway and the new one works fine

    That sounds like total bollocks to me.

    That's what I thought. I can imagine heat might lead to problems like that but it doesn't even get warm when I play

    Dude. I think you should sell your iPhone. I swear everyone I lurk in this thread, it's you posting issues with the iPhone.
    Get a android.

    The battery life in my OnePlus 3T seems to have reduced massively over the past week - initially I was comfortably getting 2 full days with moderate use, but I was at 100% yesterday morning, down to 22% by the time I woke up today and 8% by the time I was in work...?

    I've checked to ensure that I haven't got any apps hogging the battery, but my top 3 uses are Android OS (22%) Bluetooth (18%) and Android System (10%).

    I'll do a restart and re-charge the phone, but I hope it's not indicative of what the next 2 years are going to be like - after swapping my reliable Xperia Z3 which could easily do 2 days - or more - for this will be a real disappointment. Almost as bad as going back to an iPhone! ;)

    Try going into location services and turning location mode to device only. After the most recent update, my preferences got reset and my phone trying to confirm location with bluetooth and wifi was molesting my battery.

    Thanks for the tip -I've done as you've suggested. Hopefully that'll sort the issue.

    Right then.

    My mate lost his phone when shitfaced. He had insurance, so he reported it stolen and got a new phone sent out. A day or two later he finds his old phone so now he has two. He probably should have sent it back but he sells it to me.

    So I've got a new SE, it's lovely I'm over the moon with it. Just swapped sims and I get no signal. Bit of googling says it may now be on an IMEI blacklist. We're both 02. Is there anything I can do? See all these shops that have unlocking services, but apparently this needs unblocking which is illegal.

    I'm not that bothered as he says he'll just give me my money back, but I like the phone now. Any way round it?

    Has anybody ever ordered a phone from Vodafone and been given an 'EDM' order number?

    I was told to expect a delivery 48 hours after ordering but that didn't happen so had an online chat with India and was told there waiting on stock so might take a few days,it's now been over a week and tracking it online just says order excepted and we'll contact you .

    Just hoping this doesn't turn into a drawn out affair.

    I used a member of staffs android phone (Samsung 5S) I think. He was showing me some Kodi app where he can stream any movie. All completely dodgy of course but I have no problem with that. I tried to explain to him this sort of thing probably wouldn't be on the iOS App Store so he gave me a YouTube link. I need to connect my phone to a PC and download various things. I don't have access to a PC for quite a while though. 😫

    I suspect 'connecting it to a PC and downloading things' is almost the dictionary definition of side loading and to do that you may need to root your phone. So at the end of it you were more or less spot on the start with.
