sir bakit nag inquire ako sa globe yung iphone 5s nila naka ios7 daw pero may option mag upgrade sa latest os. tinanung ko preactivated naba yun units nila, sagot sa akin ganun daw may os na.
ganito ba talaga ang practice, o paranoid lang ako?
ok lang nman siguro magspeculate sa ganitong kalaking iexpend. hindi ba kapag bumili ng bagong ipad sa first-power-on or usage palang maactivate yung unit at doon na mismo mag install ng latest ios? napaisip tuloy ako baka nagamit na unit nila first hand, may defect tapos binalik sa circulation, at sa next gullible buyer na ibenta.
isa pa po, i heard naguunlock sila after the contract. nakasaad naba ito sa contrata nila? o baka part lng ito ng marketing strategy.
Sorry, but I'm not getting the full gist of your first query. But I'll try to answer it anyway.
Old stocks have the old iOS version (probably v7.X.X). I'm not sure if they can upgrade it for you on the spot, but you can do it yourself via iTunes or OTA. Bottomline, you do have an option to upgrade.
Newer stocks tend to have the latest iOS version pre-installed.
Upon getting my 5S, they had to activate the device so I could test it, so in my experience, it's not preactivated.
If in any case the device is defective, you can still return to them and have it serviced. That's what warranties are for.
For the unlocking, I don't think it's part of their contract. Must be a value-added service (or something to that effect) exclusive to their Postpaid patrons. I've actually availed of it last month for my 5S on a 6-month contract. I don't care how this systems works, so long as it does.
Oh, and it's limited to a few device makes. From my last inquiry, they're able to unlock out-of-contract Apple and Samsung phones.
