early iphone upgrade


does it seem to anyone else like they always have one of these. i dont see how anyone could ever have to pay full price for an iphone unless they just break phones every 2 months


i'm generally safe with my phones for at least 4 months then i will crack the screen and frick em up

re: early iphone upgrade


not sure what carrier you have, and i actually don't know if it applies to iphones, but asurion through sprint would send me a phone literally THE NEXT DAY if i got it water damaged, screen cracked,etc.

All for like 7 bucks a month

re: early iphone upgrade


What are you trying to say? They'll give you $20 off of a $500 phone if you do it now? The two year contract thing is the full upgrade, all of the early upgrade options I've ever seen were shite.

I have seen a dude I work with get like 3 new phones in the past year or so. He calls and bitches his arse off about his broken phone. Being relentless works I guess.

re: early iphone upgrade


I upgraded my iphone by taking it apart and installing aftermarket parts on it. Nothing performance based though.

You don't need to go the full contract to get an upgrade. Usually around 18-20 months AT&T will let you upgrade. Call *639# from your phone. You're probably eligible for an upgrade now.

I'm due an upgrade now .. ATT.

IP5 32 Gig
IP5 64 Gig Or

4S .. $99

OT's thoughts on IPhone 5 vs 4S? I had a 4S when they came out and was totally happy (lost it). Worth moving up to the 5?

My iPhones always last the 2 years. I fix them when damaged though.

$11

Not sure who your with. But with sprint they allow you to buy out the remainder of your contract which makes you eligible for the full upgrade. Usually less than $100.

i'm assuming its only a $100 difference between the 32GB 5 and the 4S so i would pay the extra hundred because the actual phone values without an upgrade is probably closer to $200

re: early iphone upgrade


I'd go 5 with the least amount of available storage. Both nice phones, but the 5 is lighter and a bit slicker.

re: early iphone upgrade


I don't want that. I pimped out my iP5 and I plan on rocking it for a while. Plus, now that I know how to completely dismantle it I'm good as far as repairing it. I may even change the midframe out one day if I can find a cool color.
