    What does "genius for apps" do exactly? I have all on except iadds and diagnostics & usage.

    I keep them all off. Cell network search is just for ad tracking and shows no benefit of better reception.

    Exactly. I have Locations service turned off completely which turns off cell network search, and I have no issues.

    I went back and turned OFF all but Traffic - Maps needs that turned on to show Traffic info.

    Please explain to me how you know this, not saying your wrong but I don't get why there would be a specific switch for ad tracking then an additional one?

    With the exception of the first one all of them are self explanatory, or for the mentally challenged a quick google search will yield results.

    Here's something from the Apple support forum.

    The OP came here with a legit question. What'd you bring besides attitude?

    legit question "this thing says compass calibration what does it do." If you cannot answer that question by yourself you are probably too young to have a cell phone.

    Because you can't catch fish for someone forever. IF they have this much trouble with pretty clear and easily searchable options I can't imagine what signing a contract or entering a legal obligation will be like for them.

    You could've originally suggested Google without the snark. Snark-free responses don't cost anything extra. :)

    taking a screenshot, and making a topic about not knowing what they mean is harder than running a simple search for "what is cell network searching on iphone" and clicking the first link.

    you seem to be challenged in the polite social manners department. i'll also take a guess that you're VERY single.

    It's too bad insults aren't allowed on here because you'd be buried by them with your attitude.
