Most of my clients are with Netregistry and this is what I sent them today. ... Over the last couple of months, I have been stretched support wise from my client base. Netregistry used to be very reliable and now I have lost confidence in the company. I have required imap with a good amount of storage and have moved a lot of clients towards cpanel products. I still have many on cloud products and they can be just as unreliable. It’s going to be a major effort to move away and I know you have been migrating to new products lately. – Has you reliability improved on these new servers

When purchasing an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch from someone other than Apple or an authorized Apple reseller, it is up to you to ensure that the device has been erased and is no longer linked to the previous owner’s account. Follow each of these steps to make sure that you can use the device you purchase: 1. Turn the device on and slide to unlock.
If the passcode lock screen or the home screen appears, the device has not been erased. Ask the seller to completely erase the device by going to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. Do not take ownership of any used iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch until it has been erased. 2. Begin the device setup process.
After choosing a language, choosing a country, and connecting to a network, the device will begin activation. If you are asked for the previous owner’s Apple ID and password, the device is still linked to their account. Hand the device back to the seller and ask them to enter their password. If the previous owner is not present, they can remove the device from their account by signing in to icloud.com/find. Do not take ownership of any used iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch until it has been removed from the previous owner’s account. You will know that a device is ready for you to use when you are asked to “Set up your iPhone”, “Set up your iPad”, or “Set up your iPod” during the device setup process. 18/09/2013 New IOS for the iPhone Our time Thursday should see new software for the iPhone. It will look different and take a bit of getting used to. It’s important to sync with iTunes to get a good backup. In Devices, click on your iPhone then click on the Summary tab. Turn on Encrypt iPhone (iPad) Backup. This will back up your passwords as well. Much better for restoring. 13/10/2012 New Site TeamViewerQS This is a work in progress.
