Don't worry, you got a much better value.

I had the black version of this and it was just a pain. I'm so glad I spring for the official battery.

In Topic: Never been a contract before, only prepaid. Any protips?

10 February 2015 - 12:04 PM

Hey all,

I've been thinking about buying an iPhone 6 from a major carrier in April and at the moment I'm trying to soak in any deals or protips before I make the jump. I've currently been on Virgin Mobile (basically prepaid for Sprint) for around five years since I was constantly on a budget. Now I've been thinking about moving to a contract plan so that I have a better choice of phones in the future.

Some Info:
1. I live/work in Western Maryland and the plan is just for myself
2. I've been looking at Sprint and Verizon.
3. I'm willing to buy an unlocked phone/pay off the phone from the start.
4. I want at least 2 GB of data of month.
5. For the phone's warranty, I'm probably going with Squaretrade since I have no Apple store nearby.

Verizon from my research seems to have the best service but in turn is more expensive. Sprint (from my experience) has always been okay but in some areas, but the service just takes a nosedive in some areas. I've never been on a phone plan with a "big" carrier before so I'm not sure of all of the positives and negatives that will go with it yet. I'm in my mid-20's and a lot of my friends are still on their parent's plans and all the other's are on prepaid soooo... IRL advice is sadly not an option, lol.

Oh, and if someone wants to convince me to go on something like AT&T or T-Mobile, go for it.

why would you sign a contract if you're willing to pay for the phone upfront? Subsidized phones are the only advantage to a postpaid plan.

If you're ok with sprint's coverage then they probably have the cheapest option, but I would take a look at the coverage of all the major carriers in the areas where you live, work, and drive and make a decision based on that. Be sure to check out page plus and cricket and other prepaid options.
