THIS is why everyone should get an iPhone. So user friendly, I just love mine! No funkiness, no dropped calls, no weird stuff with my mail or contacts, etc. Just a good all around little phone.

The iPhone is fine, but I honestly don't think it compares to the UI and many things that the Windows Phones do. The keyboard is terrible in comparison to WP, and the way WP handles your contacts and links all your accounts together is just incredible. The one thing iPhone excels at, and is the one thing that has me thinking iPhone when the next one comes out is the app support. iPhone just kills it on 3rd party software.

I stand by my iPhone being the best "my first smartphone" option, but my opinion on the second choice is no longer Android (unless maybe it is one of the Nexus line).

since I got my new iPad 4 at work I've decided that I'm going to be joining the darkside and going with the iPhone 5. Yeah, I know that the 5s or whatever is comoing out in fall, but my current phone is a piece of shit and I need one prior to Vegas. And with the new OS that's coming out, Apple is finally listening to people that have always used the "UI IS BETTER ON DROID/WINDOWS" opinion (I was one of them) as they took alot of things from those two.

So yeah, I'm excited to finally get a new phone this weekend that actually works. My Droid X (was decent for a while) but lately it's been a huge piece of crap.

my buddy at work has the beta installed on his phone, and it's pretty sweet.

Love my iPhone 5, but for some reason I don't get all my notifications for texts. It's only texts that do it too. I will check my phone and I will have 3 missed texts randomly.

What's the trade in deal? I have been looking at T-Mobile because I need the unlimited data. They have some trade ins going, but the site isn't great at explaining. May go into a store later. I am going with the 6 Plus. It's retarded big, but I want that battery life.

A Iphone 5 16gb (which is what I have) is going for $225 right now, which is $25 more than Verizon is offering. Is the battery life supposed to be that much better on the 6+? I don't want a phablet. I generally get 2 days out of a charge now but I'm not using the phone all the time.

My contract doesn't expire until next week so I don't know how that throws a wrench into things. There's a best buy next to where I'm going for lunch so I'll probably stop in and see what I need to do.

I'm waiting on a trade-in deal for my Samsung Galaxy III for one of these bad boys...probably SOL on that score, dammit.

They're saying like 80 hours of talking/browsing on the 6 Plus. My iPhone 5 has to be charged at least twice a day for me to make it.

Oh wow, that's a lot of use. Most of my talking gets done on the work phone so I don't have to charge it that often. 6+ is definitely a better option for you.

I went to Best Buy but they immediately suggested the Edge program and wouldn't give me a straight answer on just getting a new contract with a trade in. It's like buying a used car.

I don't even think it's a lot of use in my average day! Check twitter. Check facebook. Text some. I use it to talk like once a week to call my mom.

That's not right, then. Maybe you got one of the models with shitty battery that got recalled?

Billy, Sarah just got her iPhone 5 battery replaced for free yesterday. Sounds like you have the same issues she did. Check their site to see if you're eligible for a battery replacement.
