Verizon Wireless Iphone?

Jun 11, 2010 @ 00:47
I think I'm going to wait to get this phone if I get it at all. I have to wait till february to upgrade for 200 instead of 400 which I'm eligible for now. If I sell my 3GS for 200 I'll get it for free. However, if I wait that long I might as well wait till summer when there will no doubt be an updated iphone. Fuck Apple. Why must we play this game?

buy it and sell your 3GS. they easily go for 300-400+ depending on model (16/32gb)

Jun 12, 2010 @ 15:46

All depends where u are on the list of pre orders... U might not get it til a week after the release date... Just depends how many pre order and how many the first batch ships out.. This what happened with me in the ipad...

smh got graduation rehearsal on the 24th.

if i do a pickup for preorder, can i come to the store any time i want to pick it up?
Jun 12, 2010 @ 17:55
several q's; if anyone can answer these it'd be appreciated:

-when purchasing the iphone 4g @ apple, is it required you have at&t?
-if not, is there pricing on purchasing the phone by itself or it is mandatory 2 yr contract no matter what?
-possible for a friend(t-mobile user) to use this phone or too soon to tell?

- no it is not required to have at&t
- $599/$699 (16GB/32GB)
- no because the phones will be locked to at&t. your friend will have to wait until someone finds a way to unlock the device. even then, 3g on t-mobile will not work.

iphone 5 is due months after this one. iphone 6 will be out a week after the iphone 5. iphone 7 and 8 both come out on the same day. shit drives me nuts. i cant buy an apple product without feeling that it's obsolete in a few months when an even better version comes out.
Jun 12, 2010 @ 18:33
really?

the thing about apple is that their release schedule is quite predictable. the iphone will refresh every year, so iphone 5th gen = summer 2011.
Jun 12, 2010 @ 20:47
thank you for all the detailed answers hypoh.

oh and lastly;

-if my 2 yr contract with 3g doesn't end until sept 2011, is there anyway i can get the iphone 4 with a new two yr contract or would they charge me a cancellation fee?

Started work for Orange (UK cell company) so hopefully will be able to get some kind of staff discount on a tariff.

Early Upgrade = $399/$499, and your 2-year contract starts over from the date you upgraded

If you cancel your contract now, you will pay $175 minus $5 for every month you have completed. So you will have to pay approximately $130 in ETF. Then you could get sign up as a new customer and pay $199/$299 for the new iPhone and 2-year contract... which would be about $330/$430 total.

So theoretically, canceling your contract and signing a new one will save you $70, but you will not be able to retain your unlimited data plan (assuming you have one) and you risk losing your phone number. Plus it may be more of a hassle.

just like previous years... when you preorder, the phone will deliver to your door on release day. the only time you wont get it on release day is if they sell out of preorders like they did last year (and even then , they will tell you before you confirm your order)

you can even preorder at the Apple Store and AT&T and do a instore pickup. i woul rather have it delivered to me to avoid crowds(if any)

Jun 13, 2010 @ 22:13
yes, they ship it to your door on the released day. that's what they have always done the last 3 years.
