      Wait until you get CT contrast. Feels like you have to **** and **** out of every part of your body simultaneously

        I need a new phone, my ancient Android has died (the CPU is fine but the screen gave up).

        I'm going to get an iPhone to match Dr. Mrs.

        (1) Will I be able to move all my contact info easily from my android account? I'll be using the same carrier (Verizon).
        (2) What should I get? Typically I buy one or two models older than current. I have absolutely NO desire to pay a premium to be current.

          My results were perfect. My results for my colonoscopy were too.

            Maybe. I'm sure there are hundreds of articles detailing the exact steps. (not trying to be snarky)

            If you just want a smartphone, get an SE or the oldest model Apple offers. You'll want to know if you like the big screen or the smallest screen. A SE if you like the small screen, a regular if you want the mediumish screen.
            You probably won't need a max/pro unless you're wanting a brilliant camera.

            my iPhone 8 still works but it's really showing its age.

              Depends how your data was saved and how accessible the Android device is currently.

              Apple provides a handly way to migrate your information: https://support.apple.com/en-us/118670 but, it requires the Android device to be able to access wifi and download a migration app. IMO, if I was to migrate to iOS, I'd look at this option first.

              If your contacts were saved directly to your Google/G-Mail account (http://contacts.google.com), you could *probably* just add your Google account to the iPhone and import your contacts directly without needing witchcraft to keep the screen alive.

              As for Verizon, unless your contacts were saved directly to their cloud, and unless their cloud services have greatly improved, I felt that Verizon was *ss at migrating to new devices. Maybe it was just the way they "imported" my contacts from my dumb phone to my smart phone way back, but it had incomplete and missing data.

              For the most part, Apple, Google, and Samsung, despite trying to lock you to a brand or OS, want to make migration smooth to prove their side is better. My most recent experience that was 100% smooth was Samsung's Smart Switch which made upgrading from an S10+ to an S23FE super easy. It let me pick whatever I wanted to transfer, so text chains transfered over like I never upgraded. Sure starting fresh is nice, but so was having all the old messages right there.



              And to *everyone* out there with Android, I recommend saving *all* contacts to your personal Google account. Not to the phone and especially not to a synced work Outlook account. I had a coworker who's Android phone completely **** the bed and spent a month or more re-networking with people because some contacts were saved only to his phone and couldn't get moved to his new phone. Then when he quit, corporate locked him out of his work account, where he had now saved everyone's contact info to, and spent at least three months at his new job reaching out to people to get their info. ... Only to leave two years later and have the same IT / contact issue happen. When he called me asking for a couple people's numbers and explained what happened expecting sympathy, I laughed HARD at this happening to him again.




              Tl;dr - Try using Apple's app Move to iOS on both devices to migrate contacts.

                Another great thing about the SE is that it still has the home button.

                Yeah, I know. Get off my lawn

                  I actually did backup to cloud. Just this once I wasn't an idiot.

                    When looking at upgrading my mother's dumb phone to either Apple or Android two years ago, having a visible/physical home button to escape trouble was a huge selling point. There's no way she would get the hang of gestures.

                    Wound up going Samsung because the SE was already close to aged out for updates.

                      Like DX said there are multiple articles on how to transfer, and a quick Google shows that Verizon, if you use their cloud, does indeed still suck *ss at transferring info but it's not as bad as it was.

                      I still stand by my save *every* contact to Google statement though.
