New Iphone - Best deals?
In the market for a new iphone. Likely will get one today or tomorrow... I think the right move is Iphone 11?

Asking before I jump in. Going from a 6s to an 11...ready to get back in with technology after not upgrading the past few years and toughing it out.

Trying to shop the best deals...At&T plan over here.

TMobile has 500 off with a 6s trade in. It's with 24 months of bill credits so you are basically signing a 2 year contract

I mean, in Birmingham they have waaaaaaay better coverage than at&t

Not that I expect the OP to be in Birmingham

When I had them, they had pretty good service. It was excellent in town, alittle spotty in rural areas. Definitely worse than Verizon, but not that bad. That's been a couple years ago though, don't know how it has changed

I did this for my wife and I.

While TMobile's coverage is fine in Austin, everything about the process has been a pain in the ass. Their website is the worst I have ever used for eCommerce. I couldn't enter my trade-in devices online so I had to go to a store, where they told me they couldn't accept the devices and I needed to ship them. Then they couldn't process my order for the new devices, so I had to call and get that straightened out. Never got the shipping labels for the trade-in so I called and finally got them. Then they send an email saying my trade-in is different than what they expected and to click a link to the order to find out more. Link doesn't work. I called and get that straightened out and they give me a bill credit for the difference.

Now that all of that is sorted out, I'm hoping they will just autodraft my payments and I never have to speak with them again. But this was by far my worst experience with switching to a carrier.

If you tend to hold onto your phone you should probably wait if you don't have a bad battery or broken screen forcing you to upgrade now. Tough it out 6 more months and wait for the 12. It will have 5G and be a much bigger upgrade technologically speaking.

Upgrading now and waiting another 4 years will probably leave you behind the curve for quite a while with 5G starting to deploy now.

I agree with this. I went from a 7 plus to the 11 and the only thing noticeably better is the camera which is a huge upgrade. I actually hate that it doesn’t have the fingerprint scanner to unlock and only has face recognition. When I wear a hat and sunglasses it hardly ever recognizes me and I have to type my passcode even though I’ve added multiple face scans.

I forgot Touch ID. Another rumored feature of the 12 is they may be bringing Touch ID back in addition to having Face ID. Face ID is good in many situations, not all. The same with Touch ID. Having both would be a pretty big upgrade worth waiting for as well.

I switched from Verizon to TMobil. Saved 90 a month on family plan plus got two new IPhone 11plus’. Free Netflix as well. The iPhone 11 plus was a step up from the 7. No problems with coverage in Baton Rouge.
