Here in the U.S., T-Mobile has been the last carrier without the iPhone — at least officially. Unofficially, people have been buying iPhones and jailbreaking them to use on T-Mobile for years, because the AT&T model could be used with a T-Mobile SIM card.
But now, T-Mobile is carrying the iPhone, and they’re doing it without a contract. That’s right, you pay $99 for the iPhone initially, then $20/month for two years for a total of $580. The overall numbers aren’t quite a slam dunk, but it’s still pretty nice for people who want to get away from contracts.
If you live in the U.S., would you switch to T-Mobile for the iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right!
My folks recently purchased iPhone 5′s for themselves, and on my recommendation, they purchased white ones. See, I bought a black one myself, and now I find myself wishing I had bought the white instead. Of course, my mother now regrets getting a white one, so I have that parental guilt over my head. So that’s fun.
What about you? Did you buy a black or white iPhone? It doesn’t matter whether it’s an iPhone 5 or a 3GS, which color do you have for your iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right!
On September 21st, Apple released its latest generation iPhone to the public. Most customers and journalists gave much acclaim to the device, but there were some who saw the new 4-inch display as an issue. Developers and their designers, for example, must stretch or restructure elements of their apps for the extra 176 pixels the new display embraces. This can also affect the end user: apps that are not optimized for the new display have 88-pixel black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.
Given time, all developers, both active and passive, will work with their designers to amend their apps. Right now, however, there are only a few well-developed apps available that make use of the new iPhone’s display. Scouring through various sources, I’ve assembled a roundup of 15 essential apps that take advantage of Apple’s latest iOS device. (more…)

You’ve watched the keynote, seen the unboxing videos and read the reviews. You know everything there is to know about the latest and greatest iPhone — what else could you possibly have to discover?
Well I received my iPhone 5 yesterday via FedEx, and I spent the afternoon testing it in various conditions. How well did LTE work? What is the hardware like in real life? Is it worth the upgrade? This isn’t your typical new iPhone review, it’s a walkthrough of the product with casual and real thoughts as it’s being used. Hit us up after the jump to find out more. (more…)
Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 went live last Friday in the wee hours of the morning, and just an hour later, they were gone. Sure, you can still pre-order an iPhone 5, but now the wait time is 2-3 weeks. I’m sure some of you managed to get in your bid, so what did you order? Let us know in the poll to the right.
In my case, I got a 64GB black & slate model, and I even learned something. I called Verizon on Wednesday because I wanted to switch carriers. When I spoke to a rep, she gave me a number and extension to call on Friday morning. She said that if she wasn’t there, just to leave a message and she’d call me back.
At 11:45, I called her and left her a message. At 12:05 am, she called me and I was done by 12:15. Best purchase experience I’ve had with a cell phone company in a long time.
Point is, next time around, you might try your carrier and see what options they have for pre-orders!
So. Anyone have any plans for tomorrow? We do. It’s the big iPhone announcement, and we’ll be live tweeting the event via @iphoneappstorm (mute or unsubscribe if you don’t want to be assaulted by tweets).
But how do you find out about what’s new and cool in the Apple world? Do you follow live? Do you catch up later? How do you feel about nachos? Let us know in the poll to the right.
Although there’s no confirmation yet, everyone assumes that the next iPhone — whatever it’s named — is going to have LTE onboard. Where I live, Verizon dominates AT&T in that category, so making the switch for me is something of a no brainer.
But what about for you? Will you make a switch if the next iPhone has LTE? Let us know in the poll to the right.
So the new iPad was introduced last week, and with it came some pretty major technical improvements that make up one really impressive device. In the previous two generations, certain improvements were introduced with the iPad, then passed over to the iPhone and we so no reason why this time should be any different.
Do you? What do you think will make it to the next model of iPhone? Let us know in the poll to the right.
As most of you probably know, Apple held a press event this past Wednesday, and they introduced the new AppleTV and the new iPad. Note, that’s note the AppleTV 3 or iPad 3 as some had expected, but just the new iPad.
So what does this mean for the next iPhone? Will we see an iPhone 5, iPhone 4G LTE or just the “new” iPhone? It may not sound important, but it kinda is. (more…)
