I’ve needed a new phone for a while. I did have a nice iPhone 5C that did the job well enough but very kindly swapped with Morgan for my even older iPhone 4 so that he could Pokémon while that was all the craze. Needless to say he hasn’t been that inclined to swap back...

Fenix 3 Back up and Restore

I’ve recently had some people asking how to restore their Fenix 3 after performing a master reset.
