“This iPod cannot be used because the Apple Mobile Device service is not started.”
Well bloody start it then! Or maybe how about offering me an option somewhere, anywhere, to bloody start it myself? And while you’re at it how about explaining just why doing something the very same way I do it every other time would possibly mean that NOW it stops.
Once I’ve figured out how to use the new(ish) phone to do everything that the iPod does then maybe I’ll start using this piece of Apple dross for its most obviously useful purpose, stopping wobbly tables wobble so much. Piece of over-expensive cobbled together shite.
