[QUOTE="Aldo Raine"]\nWell, there's a very good and logical reason I use that phone. We get our\ncell service through a Verizon MVNO on an extremely low cost pay as you go\nplan that doesn't allow 4G devices, even if flashed down to 3G.[/QUOTE]\n\nMakes more sense to use a 5 instead of paying\n to get Apple to replace the battery in the 4S.\n[QUOTE]\nI want to be on the Verizon network-\- plus we're all committed to the\nApple OS X/iOS platform. So that really makes the iPhone 4S the best of\nshow.[/QUOTE]\n\nThe 5 is much better.\n[QUOTE]\nWe pay only a few bucks each month for just about bullet proof\ncoverage/service most anyplace in the country \nYes.\n\non pretty decent iPhone.[/QUOTE]\n\nThe 5 does that better.\n[QUOTE]\nAs for spending on an old phone-\-\- well most folks piss away far more\nthan that each month on their cell bills, probably not using anywhere near\nthe minutes or data they pay for.[/QUOTE]\n\nSure, but that clearly isnt necessary.\n[QUOTE]\nThe battery is a one-time purchase-\- if I go with iFixit, at the\nApple store.[/QUOTE]\n\nAnd I was saying that makes no sense unless\nyou are the sort of technoklutz that wrecks anything\nyou touch and that even if you are one of those, an\niphone 5 makes a lot more sense than a 4S.\n[QUOTE]\nIf I try to fix it myself and brick it, I can still sell it as a parts\nphone on Ebay then pick up another one there or on Craigslist for not a\nwhole lot of money.[/QUOTE]\n\nJust as true of doing that now with the 4S and replacing it with a 5.\n[QUOTE]\nOr maybe I'll use some of the big bucks we save on cell service and just\nlet the Apple geeks do it. The local Apple store Genius Bar has a couple\nreally hot babes working the afternoon/evening shift...[/QUOTE]\n\nMakes more sense to change to a 5.
