Quick question with the new iPhone models what do you think will happen with Verizon user who are due for an upgrade? Right now I can get an iPhone4 8gb for $1.00 or a 16gb 4s for $99.00 for my 2 year upgrade. I am fine with whatever model it is I just want to finally upgrade to an iPhone but the $1.00 8gb is too small for me. Do you think with the new phones coming out the 16gb 4s will drop down in price for people who want to use their upgrade on it?


Apple announced that the new "Free" iPhone is going to be a 4S, though it'll still be 8GB.

$99 will net you a 16GB iPhone 5c
$199 for a 32GB iPhone 5c

And then
$199 for 16GB iPhone 5s
$299 for 32GB iPhone 5s
#399 for 32GB iPhone 5s

The 16GB iPhone 5c is probably the best deal if you're not crazy about being on the bleeding edge and still want more than 16GB of storage. Plus the iPhone 5c hardware is running beautifully with iOS7, where 4S is a tad bit slower and then iPhone 4 is just squeaking by with the minimum requirements.

When they make the free phone the 8gb model is there anyway to upgrade to the 16gb for a fee that would be cheaper than the $100.00 fee just to get the better model?

No, all they offer is a 8GB flavor of the 4S.

Is anyone standing in line tomorrow morning for the iPhone 5s?  I am thinking about it, but never did it before.  Any strategies on how early to arrive, etc?

Not me, I'll probably just swing by the closest Best Buy after work tomorrow and see what kind of stock they have left on the 32GB iPhone 5c.

If they don't have any I'll check back in a week or two.

Why bother? I'm sure every retailer has them in stock like right now and ready to go for tomorrow.

 

Waiting in line is more of a fanboy-thing nowadays.

I'll likely just order online. Hope I can get one before heading to my parents on Oct. 2 as my 4s is going to my mom. If shipping is looking a ways out I'll probably just have it sent there as I'll be there until the 9th.

They have done better with stock than they use to, but you'll probably still need to get in line early to ensure getting the model and color you want IF you want to have it tomorrow. Otherwise order what you want online and wait.

I really don't get the line waiting anyway.  I mean I guess maybe if it's your first smart phone I could see the excitement.

 

But the upgrades are so incremental I'm not really excited about it.  Hell, I'd probably keep my 4s longer if my mom wasn't bugging me wanting it when I upgrade.

 

So I have no qualms ordering online and waiting however long.  Would like to get it by early October so I can just give my mom the 4s when I'm visiting rather than having to mail it, but that's not the end of the world.

 

As for model, I'll go with the 16gb black 5s.  Thought about going to 32, but I just don't need much music on my phone since signing up for Spotify.

I kind of want a iPhone 5s for the slo mo camera on it.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

It's two phones per customer. This moron hired about 40ish homeless people from Skid Row LA to stand in line. He also bragged about it to other people waiting in line which he was limited to 12 iPhones when his scheme was blown. Then these homeless people got into a fight with him and other customers because they didn't get paid as promised.

 

I have a feeling that this will happen to the PS4 and/or XBox One when released.

I am sort of drawn to the 5c over the 5s as well. Not so much for the price, but because of the smooth, curved back. Reminds me of the trusty 3GS which is more comfortable to hold than my 4. Plus I never felt like I needed a case with it, unlike the 4. Having said that, I really wish they offered some non-pastel colors. That blue doesn't work for me nor the other colors, except white, so I'd probably go with that. This is all theoretical. Too broke right now to upgrade. :(

I'm glad I didn't wait for the iphone and got the S4.  The iphone 5 just doesn't seem like it's worth it.  Don't get me wrong, I'm a big apple fan and have 3 mac os devices and 7 ios devices at home.  

 

I kind of wish I'd gotten a regular S4 for the missing features though.  Not that it's a big deal, but sometimes I want the phone to scroll on its own :lol:

Why were there so many people waiting outside of the Apple Store today?  I thought the launch was last Friday?  There were at least 100 people on line when I walked by.

Hey gents, have a question as I don't know much about customizing smartphones. Are you able to make custom text umm tones for Android cells? Like the notification noise you hear when you receive a text? I have an MP3 file but not sure how to do this if you even can.

You should be able to. Go to the messaging app and click on your phone's menu button. Go to settings and scroll down to notification sound. You should be able to select it from there.

There is also a default notification sound under settings/device/sound, which is the universal tone.
