I will be watching this closely... I am almost for sure going with the Galaxy Note 3 on my Sprint line (or maybe a ONE MAX)... but I might port my Net10 Nexus4 line to the in-laws Verizon plan onto a new iPhone.  But Apple will have to impress (I have been very disappointed with the 4S and 5 -- almost no improvement on the 4...)

The iPhone 5 is a HUGE improvement over the 4s and especially the 4.

That is really bashing the 4 and 4S then. 2 posts in this thread and you are bashing apple already?

I had the 4 and my wife had the 4S -- very VERY little difference (other than Siri, which other than to find where to bury a dead body was not very useful).... I have only played with a 5 a bit in the store -- but other than an extra row of icons seemed nearly identical to my wife's 4S...

 

Don't get me wrong -- great phone.  Better in some ways than Android and worse in others.  Biggest deal is Apple has stalled while Android has really picked up on many of it's shortcomings. (Wife went from EVO to 4S to GS4 and has seen this evolution 1st hand)...

I was actually trying to be funny. Seems everybody gets excited when somebody talks about Android in a iPhone thread and vis-versa.

 

I forgot to add the smiley face. :)

 

I'm an iPhone convert (from Android). I still love Android, especially the newest iteration. iPhone just works better for me and my wife. I prefer Apple's ecosystem.

 

I wish I could have both, honestly. Especially when the new TriBand phones come out.

Oh man. This means this one will launch at $200, the iPhone 4 will go EOL, the 5 will become $100, and the 4S will become free at POS with an upgrade or new line activation. Siri for everyone!

 

(Personally, due to things like LTE and BC10 CDMA, I'm hoping they announce a "low-cost" iPhone for the "free" category and just drop the 4 and 4S entirely. But, that's a Sprint-centric viewpoint)

Waiting for Apple to give me an iPhone with a galaxy 4 type screen size. I can hold out another year, if they don't I will just go back to android. Both OS are good and work for me.

I think they will.. It will be the 5S and the 5C.. Maybe a 4S for the third category though...

Will Tim Cook go on about how inferior bigger displays are and how even a grade school kid can use the 4" display one handed?

Yeah, if the 5C comes out, they'll either have 4 devices, or drop the 4 and 4S and just have 3 like they have in the past.

 

They might even keep the 4 and 4S around for a few months until inventory dries up, and then tell everyone to buy the 5C.

 

Who knows! It's all speculation until that very day.

Guys...let's be respectful of people's choice of smartphone platform. iOS is a perfectly viable platform for many S4GRU members. There really isn't a better OS, there is just a better one for you. I may start removing pointless/unhelpful comments about iOS or Android made by fanboys. Let's keep our comments constructive! Thanks.

Or we could start moving those posts to the nascent "social status thread."

Of course all speculation, but without rumors and speculation it would be no fun.

 

I read somewhere this morning that the thinking would be the 5C would have inexpensive insides -- but in keeping with Apple's way, it would likely be something like 4S stuff (keep using existing supply chains and lines etc)....

 

That would likely make it a 5C budget, 5 value, and 5S high-performance three tier system... which makes total sense (and gets all the phones on one 4" size screen).

 

Which to me is a mistake... I think rather than one-size different performances, they would be better to have a 4S size, 5S size and a larger 5" or so size...

I like to think I remain contructive in all posts, hope I am anyways...

 

On the other hand, iOS is totally not viable for the S4GRU community... NO SENSORLY!

Just because Sensorly isn't capable of mapping on iOS right now, doesn't mean that once iOS 7 is released that it can't be updated to support it. For me, iOS is more viable of an operating system than Android after I went through 4 defective phones in a one year period. I'm still willing to give Android another shot later down the road, but not right now.

      So, we all know about the lovely iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus User thread, and there are many different device focused threads across S4GRU, but there are none for us older iPhone users. So, why should they get to have all the fun? This thread is dedicated to anything and everything about our beautiful (Spark-less) iPhone 5's and 5S's.
       
      Discuss anything like jailbreaks, hardware problems, how much you love your device, how great it is to have at least one LTE band compared to the folks who still have 4's and 4S's, ask questions and maybe you can get some answers, etc. etc.
       
      Discuss!

      I just joined the LTE party recently, and lucky me, Sprint has started rolling out LTE where I spend most of my time. (Lehigh Valley PA, and Endicott, NY)
       
      Over the years I've read a few "scare" stories of Sprint users getting booted due to excessive data usage. My question is: At what point should I worry? In 2013, is there now a revised "safe zone" of data usage that doesn't raise any red flags? For some reason, I remember 5Gb being the magic number, but now that I've been using LTE, it seems I'm going to suck that up very quickly. 
       
      I know that Sprint has no qualms eliminating customers that use unauthorized tethering, but if I'm following all of the rules using my Sprint device over LTE, how high can I realistically go before Sprint starts to care? 10 gig? 15 gig? Do they even care as long as their users aren't using unauthorized tethering workarounds? 
       
      Also, if I do hit an extremely high amount of (legal) usage, do they send out a warning first, or immediately cancel service? 
       
      I've got a good thing going with my plan right now, and I don't want to be seen as an abuser of it. Since I'm kind of late to the LTE party having an iPhone 4S for so long, I'm not sure what's seen as excessive anymore. 
       
      Thanks for any input you guys can give!

      Via TUAW's article on Apple's relationship (or lack thereof) with China Mobile:
       
       
      We'll know for sure in 26 days, but it's fun to think about the iPhone 5S/5C being true global smartphones, capable of running on multiple bands -- and especially fun to think about the possibility of a tri-band device for us to play with on the new Sprint Network.

      BGR is either really full of it, or on to something, citing a user on Weibo:
      iPhone 5S: New leaked photos, purported full specs point to biggest ‘S’ upgrade ever
       
       
      I can't wait to upgrade my 4S, if anything, for the better battery. After 18 months, I can barely keep a charge past noon.
