I have the 3Gs and the battery is shot on it. The only way it functions is if it plugged in. So looks like I'll be upgrading. Don't know what I'll up grade to yet 4Gs or the 5.
I still have the unlimited data plan.

A phone is a phone is a phone. I'd sooner go to the phone booth on an urban corner than stand in a line that stretches 'round the block five times over.

Phone booth? What's that? Haven't seen anything like that in years

These devices are not just phones any more. To me there more like entertainment centers where I can watch a movie, pay a bill and email my boss an invite to dinner.

This might not be fair to iPhone users in general, but it's funny nonetheless:
http://www.theblaze.com/stories/the-interview-with-an-iphone-5-buyer-thats-so-incredible-youll-think-its-staged/

Quote:
Let‘s start this article off by saying the man behind the interview you’re about to see swears it’s not staged. That’s important.

Why is that important? Because the interview is so incredible you’ll think it was. How is it incredible? Let‘s just say it’s not evident if the woman seen waiting in line recently outside a NYC Apple store really understands what she’s doing, why she’s doing it, and what exactly an iPhone is — let alone what the Internet is. But alas, the video below picks up as a woman named “Rachel” has been waiting for two days to buy an iPhone 5. By the end of the conversation we know she doesn’t like the Internet, she begins calling the phone an “Apple 5,” and that she’s not afraid to put a lot of money on her credit card.

I have an iphone 4S for work and got rid of the BlackBerry two weeks ago for another 4S for my personal phone.
I don't care what they do to the new one, the old one works just as well, costs less, will do more than I'll need it for, and I get chargers and carrying cases from work for free.

There's an app for that.

The Iphone is a device that tells the world you are hip trendy and with it. It can also be used as a phone I think.

Do you need the app if you are trending towards a hip replacement?

Just because apple makes their product look sophisticated doesn't mean that the users all are. Get the stereotype out of your head. Look around at who actually uses them, friends and family.

I'm a cnc lathe operator at a tool and die shop, my girlfriend is a medical assistant, my friend is a stoner, my friend is an engineer, my friend is a masonry worker. How are we all hip and trendy? Get your facts straight before stereotyping everything you see.

I was being sarcastic. However Apple is known as a lifestyle brand.
