    I'm ready to jump back to iPhone. Would att let me do that? On a 24 month installment plan.
    Nope, you have to sell the note 5. Pay it off and get another installment for an iphone.

    You need to call them or go to a AT&T Store if have one around your area and ask them, Also there's no more 1 year or 2 year contract on AT&T was taken out the beginning of this month, so no more contract.

    Can you send/receive MMSs while connected to the microcell? It takes literally 10 minutes to send a single photo for me. It was so bad I just disconnected the microcell altogether.

    Yes I could. A few times I had issues. The microcell is only 3G. Now I would have times the microcell didn't do anything and I would reboot it and if that didn't work, I would remove it from my AT&T and then reauthorize it.

    If it's like Verizon, you'll have to pay off the phone. I would just pay it off, sell it to someone else, and get another phone on an installment plan again. That's what I've done in the past

    Hi, I am wondering if the battery life could still sustain throughout my period of usage (moderate use) or would it diminish as years go by?

    Bluetooth- watches destroys battery life. One of the reasons I stopped using my moto360 with my Galaxy S5. Haven't even tried pairing my moto 360 to the note. I do use Bluetooth headphones and take a nice hit on battery life.
    Why do you have NFC on?

    Maybe with bogus, non-efficient Android Wear stuff it does but with the Pebble watch that I use 24/7 for example, the bluetooth and the Pebble Time app that's on my phone both have basically non-existent battery drainage issues.

    So, it's not all watches that destroy battery life. Just an example.

    Can you post a screenshot of your daily usage with the Bluetooth watch. The SOT as well please?
    I'm my experience Bluetooth by itself pulls a good amount of battery.

    I'm having serious battery drain issues with the WiFi as you'll see from the pics below. Also, should the Android System consume so much of battery life? Sometimes it's as hight 25%. FYI, I have my phone set for WiFi to turn off when I leave my house and back on when I reach my office. But in this case, I began with a full charge at work, so WiFi has been connected continuous. Thanks.

    My Pebble Classic paired via Bluetooth pulls virtually no battery. I don't think I need to post a screenshot of it to prove anything to anyone. Believe it or don't believe it. Just stating a fact.

    I wasn't calling you out. I also wasn't asking you to prove anything. I was asking you to post a screenshot so I can compare the usage to my Bluetooth headphones. Your statement had me wondering. I lose a lot of battery using Bluetooth.

    My bad, caught me at a bad time and I apologize. My BT has been connected to my Pebble since last taken off the charger 11 hours and 50 minutes ago and is at 0% usage on GSAM and the companion app for my watch (Pebble Time app) shows 0.5% usage. I've been having trouble posting from the AC app for the last month as others have that's why I haven't posted a screenshot.

    This is my current usage today. I didn't use the bluetooth at all. I sent about 50+ emails, surfed chrome a lot , Android central, made about 1.5 hours of calls, sent texts. Took some notes, about 10 pics and very short video. 60% battery life 3.5 hour SOT and off the charger for 10+ hours.
    On days that I use my Bluetooth headphones and pandra for about 1.5 hours. I would be at 50% battery and only 3 hours SOT... big difference.
