- iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S
I sold my 5 and went back to a 4s, I prefer the smaller screen as couldn’t quite reach the top left part of the screen with my thumb, sounds petty but it really really annoyed me. Spend years wishing the iphone would have a bigger screen then didjt like it when it did.Posted 4 years agoAlasdairMcMember
If your contract is up for renewal now, just drop it down to a tenner a month on a SIM only plan until a phone you really want comes out. I personally wouldn’t go from a 4S to a 5 as they’re too similar.
EDIT: misread that. Just wait until the 5’s replacement comes out as it must be the next few months if previous release cycles are to believedPosted 4 years agoMrNuttMember
I went from a 4s to a 5 and its lots better, the larger screen is a big plus as is its thinner & lighter form factor. I use mine in a case, I think its called a penguin? which I got from tesco, its essentially a flip open wallet which has room enough for about 6 cards. A thicker phone would be too bulky.
Plus iOS7 runs a treat on it.Posted 4 years agogravity-slaveMember
If you are not sure, you could cancel contract, keep your phone, go sim only (such as GiffGaff, get a fiver credit for each of us using a referal http://giffgaff.com/orders/affiliate/gravityslave ) and save £27/£17 a month while you think about it and wait to see if the 5s is released?Posted 4 years ago
There’s no tie in so you can always jump back on a contract if you want to. I planned to, but the saving bought my new phone and I’m still ahead.
Paying £42 on Vodafone, unlimited texts and voice, 2gb data a month.
Over a grand for a 2 year contract? Seems like crazy money to me.
I just bought an iPhone 4S off eBay for £250.
Stuck with my contract of £16 a month.
(O2 Simplicity 100 = 100 minutes + 100 O2-to-O2 + Unlmited texts + 500MB data bolt-on. Easily enough for me)Posted 4 years ago
Yeah I was saying O2 cos the missus is on O2 as well. We have both phones under the same account, historically so we could always update the oldest phone and give it to me 😀
Suppose it would be easy enough to move away from that now. Cheers.
My point wasn’t really that I have a really cheap contract though, more just expressing my amazement that some folk think paying over a grand for 24 month contract and phone is a good deal. Even if it is an iPhone 😀Posted 4 years agogravity-slaveMember
Graham, if you are both on O2 you could both move to Giffgaff (on O2 so no need to unlock) and get free calls to each other as long as you top up every 3 months.
If one of you gets referred you get a fiver, then refer the other one and you both have a fiver so another £15 in the bank.Posted 4 years ago
