So now it’s official: we’ve got a new iPhone. Doesn’t that old iPhone 4S look a bit dated now? Thing is, you can pretty much pay nothing for your next iPhone — something I’ve proven myself in the past. But if you don’t want the hassle, we’ve got a pretty sweet deal for you — right after the jump. (more…)
After waiting for months for the official announcement from Apple, we now have the iPhone 4S. And as of yesterday, it’s now available for purchase.
In my case, it took until after 4 PM yesterday to receive my preordered iPhone, and although I got it activated almost immediately (no small feat, from what I hear), it still took a little bit to get everything set up to my satisfaction.
So what’s it like to go hands-on with the new iPhone 4S? Here’s what I experienced.
It’s funny how things work, but the other day — right after I finished writing a post about how to pay nothing for your iPhone — I received an email from GreeniPhone.com, and about how they would like to work with us to offer a special deal for only our readers. We started talking it out, and after a few emails were exchanged, we figured out a great deal that will get you some cash for your working or broken iPhone.
Oh, and the deal that AppStorm readers are getting is 25% more than the average person on the street. Interested? We’ll give you the deets after the break.
As a lot of us already know, the iPhone 4S was shown to the world a few days ago. Whenever a new Apple product comes out, I always go through this game in my mind of “is this worth buying?” Even if I am not planning on purchasing it myself, I like to think about it from a consumer point of view.
So does it make sense for you to buy the iPhone 4s? Let’s look at a few different scenarios and find out after the break.
In 2008, I purchased a shiny new iPhone 3G for myself and my wife and spent a few hundred dollars in the process. Ever since then I’ve been able to buy each new iPhone and it paid for itself within an hour, maybe two at the most. In fact, sometimes I’ve even turned a profit.
So how was I able to do this? How could I possibly pay nothing for a new iPhone? Well truth be told, I’m not really paying nothing, because there is an up front cost. But in the end, being payment neutral is a very nice thing. Heck, even getting some money back is a step in the right direction, right? Let’s talk about it after the jump.
The other day I ran into a buddy of mine who I hadn’t seen in a long time, and I noticed that he was using an original iPhone. I was shocked — not only that he hadn’t upgraded, but that it still held a charge. But he was happy with it, so he felt no reason to upgrade. Then I ran into a friend of mine who bought an iPhone 3G when it was deeply discounted (but still a new phone), and he loves it too.
So how about you? What model iPhone do you have? Let us know in the poll, and if you’ve got any interesting stories about it, tell us in the comments.
Before I left on a business trip recently, I went out and spent some cash on a nice pair of noise-canceling headphones. At first, I loved the sound and was amazed at how it shut out the static around me. Problem was, they felt really flimsy and although they looked cool, they got uncomfortable quickly.
It made me wonder how many of our readers spend some decent cash on their headphones, or if they just use the pair provided in the box with their iPhone. So let’s put it to a poll: What kind of headphones do you use?
We should be finding out about the new iPhone any day now, but there’s been talk recently about AT&T and Verizon dropping the prices on the iPhone 4 in anticipation of the new model. This is nothing new, they’ve been doing this for years now. But it made me wonder about our reading audience. When do you all buy your iPhones? Do you stand in line on launch day, wait a bit, or scoop them up at sale prices? Let us know in the poll to the right.
When I worked at a local office, I used to walk to a nearby restaurant for lunch and watch a movie on my iPhone while eating. But now, I eat more at home or with a buddy, so the opportunity doesn’t really present itself to watch anything with the iPhone. What about you? Do you prefer to use the iPhone as one of your main video sources or would you rather watch video on something bigger like an iPad or regular television? Let us know in the poll.
I went on a business trip out of the country recently, and before I left I checked with AT&T to find out what my international phone rates were looking like. Once I regained consciousness, I told my family that I would get ahold of them with FaceTime anytime I needed to talk.
And that’s what I did, but after using it for a bit it became … awkward. But why? Let’s talk it out after the break.
