    Her craptacular iphone 6s died yesterday, so I went and bought her a new S21. She was also getting fleeced on her data plan. 150-200 bucks month depending on the month, I got her as a tag along on our account sharing our data for 56 bucks a month. That's a better thing for her for sure. Bell is a bit of a rip off on data services compared to telus.

    How did you convince her to make the switch?

    easy, she's sick of her phone crapping out all the time. That and the fact that bell was ripping her off. Side note, I was into telus 2 times this past week and both times there were people upgrading their iphone because their 6 and 6s respectively was displaying the same behavior my mother in law's phone was doing. When I had her phone doing an upgrade a month ago her battery health was at 87% using apples health check. However, the phone will charge to 100 percent and then once you try to make a call it drops to 10 percent and turns off. Not a behavior that you think of a battery that has almost 90 percent "battery health" would have. Then 2 others in a week like that? hmmmmmmm somethings fishy there.

    No, it's called a FORCED upgrade.

    Phone will be here on thursday. I cannot wait to do a comparison. They could not get pink anymore, so I got her the lavender version. My wife's spiPhone is lavender too, so I am going to do a side by side comparison of both. It's going to be nice for the M.I.L. to have a screen you can read in direct sunlight, unlike our crappy iphones.

    Got her phone mostly setup. It's far better than my 11 in the short time I have used it. Such a nice modern design and feel. The OS is 1000000 percent better than spiOS.

    So you bought her a phone that will only last her 3 years with security updates vs 7. That was real smart. I can promise you parents and older people prefer iphones and what they are use too. Easier and more fluid to use. Android will confuse her. You are such a troll here with all the apple hate.
