    I dont want another flavor of Android or another OS... I adopted iOS and Mac OS since beginning exactly because it's not an Android, windows or other system !!!

    And it is still not Android or Windows. You can't go back to any previous version. Your choices are to learn to deal with it or switch to something else. Complaining about not liking it is your perogative, however, it's not a technical support issue and can't be resolved here.

     

    Best of luck.

    You know, when I recieve answers like yours "or switch to another system" on Apple forum it's a bit strange to me..

    I don't think if I talk with Apple directly they will tell me the same thing...

    I can't say what Apple would tell you. This is a user-to-user forum. No one here speaks for Apple.

    Any solutions yet?

    The only solution is to adjust to it or get a different phone. There will be no "solution" from Apple, ever.

    Apple is not here but, trust me, they do look at these comments.  So this new upgrade.  The only thing I don't like about it (okay there are many, I will go with the main thing) - I miss the hard edged/modern look that was distinctly and without question -- A P P L E.  This new look?  Looks like every other smart phone out there.  There is nothing unique about it.  I understand their need to upgrade, I understand their need to go after the "high school kids" market.  They must have some research showing that kids prefer the android look because folks, that's what we have here.  The look - I thought I'd get used to it but frankly, LOL, these round numbers drive me nuts daily.  My iPad hasn't been upgraded yet so when I am back there its like a breath of fresh air.

     

    Sadly, I agree with other posters.  There is really nothing you can do.  You must stay with ths 7 upgrade.  They have so intergrated so many things in the new update and changed so many things I'm afraid you'd be really messed up if you tried to go back.  Change in life is constant - every second, etc. etc. doesn't mean we have to like it.  There are some good things about the upgrade, I guess.  I will say what is driving me NUTS #2 worst thing:  you have a control panel, then you have a restrictions panel, then you have this then you have that.  You have to go through a maze of settings.  ANd you know what?  I actually think this was done to use more bandwidth.  So users would be so confused they wouldn't know what to shut down etc. in order to stop eating away and bandwidth. 

     

    I see more security on this phone - I think.  I WISH Apple would be Blackberry (stop laughing guys) the reason is -- RIM/BLACKBERRY still has better technology to keep our phones safe.  Apple - I know they say its safe but I have recently begun to question the safety of Apple phone with this upgrade.  I sitll they are the best on the market and have good security -- just keep your eye on your phones.  Also another recommendation:  despite the desire to put every single piece of information on your phone -- don't.  You don't need that banking app, you don't need applications that put everything on there.  Use a stationary computer for sensitive information until everyone firgures out wifi use in airports, etc. etc. And lastly, only use wifi on your phone at home or the office.  THat's it.  If you go on a free one at airport, Starbucks, McDonalds - good luck and get ready for what Europe has already been experiencing the last 5 years.  Becareful with the bluetooth/car also.  Just be smart.  I think Apple and others will adjust security in the next couple of years - I'm purposely not being specific here.

    That's so out-of-date I can't stop laughing.

    What are you 7?  Rude.  Good luck with that negative energy.

    Just pointing out an inaccuracy and mirroring your own phrasing.

    Maybe you should just let the OP fend for himself.

     

    It appears that the OP gave up on this thread months ago.
