    So, I forgot to make a back up copy of my old iPhone image. movetoios on Android doesn't seem to work with Android 9, as apparently Apple haven't updated it. I have had to use AFT, and another third party application to get my messages and other media.

    What a farce!

    I wonder if anyone knows the answer to this question off hand:

    I just upgraded from a 6 to an XS, in the process losing the ringtones I made myself through iTunes many years ago. Before I put the time into re-creating them, am I right to assume the old method still works?

    Pick a song in iTunes
    Use 'get info' to cut it down to a 40 second or less section
    Make a copy of that song
    Find the created file and change the suffix to .m4r
    Import that new song to iTunes and it recognises as a ringtone.
    (Don't forget to reset the 'get info' entries on the original song file, otherwise it'll only play the shortened section from then on.)

    Yeah that sounds about right. Certainly not as easy as what it should be!

    Indeed it is, sorry!

    If it makes you feel better smashing the back is an even bigger mistake!

    Thanks guys, so gutted and no insurance!!!

    Going in on Monday to Southampton apple store, do they fix it while you wait?

    Also which cases offer best protection for the screen as well as back?
