The Iphone 5s & Iphone 5c [not Tri-Band LTE] (was "Next iPhone to be announced on September 10")

Recommended Posts

In that case, Josh is right. He's pry better off selling his Apple device privately.

 

They are going for 350 with a clean esn on eBay so he would be looking at 650-what ever he got on every minus eBay and PayPal fees. Which means after selling it he is looking at 350ish for a iPhone 5s if it is in fast 650 off contract and get around 350 for his iPhone 5.

Thanks everyone.  I'll probably just wait then if it's that much more.  I'll be getting all the goodies of iOS7 anyway, so I'm happy.

Just do not tell a potential buyer how many "sexts" you sent with your iPhone for sale.

 

:P

Frankly that thought does make me shiver, especially considering that I bought my phone on eBay...but who knows, maybe Josh could become a candidate for the mayoral seat of NYC and those photos could actually enhance the value of the phone!

So I've heard that might have an iPhone 5s with 128 GBs of storage. If this is true do you think they'll get rid of the 16 GB for $199 and just make these storage options 32 GB $199 64 GB $299 and 128 GB $399. Instead of 16 GB $199 32 GB $299 64 GB $399 and lastly the 128 GB for $499. Honestly I think $499 is to much for a phone on contract then especially if you want some accessories and apple care + that's ends up be like $600+ for a phone.

I personally would like to see them discontinue the 16GB model on the 5S and only have it on the 5C so they can do 32, 64, 128 for the $199, $299, $399 setup. Then on the 5C have 16 for $99, 32 for $199 and 64 for $299.

Since I have a 5 already I'm more excited about iOS 7 and whether the mini gets Retina or not. My iPad 2 is getting long in the tooth and am debating whether to keep the same size or go smaller.

I realize this is specifically for China Mobile's TDD-LTE network, but hopefully they be using the same radios and thus triband a reality.

 

http://9to5mac.com/2013/09/03/apple-sends-out-invites-to-chinese-media-for-special-sept-11-event-fueling-china-mobile-iphone-launch-rumors/#more-285597

.

One day after sending out invites to press in the US for its iPhone event scheduled for September 10 in Cupertino, Apple has just sent invites to Chinese media outlets inviting press to a special event in the country on September 11. Attached to the invite (above) is the same image and tagline hinting at iPhones in various colors that Apple included on the invites for its US event. Not only will it be the first time Apple hosts such an event in China, it is also a good indication that China Mobile, the world’s largest telecom, could soon finally announce a deal with Apple to bring the iPhone to its approximately 700M subscribers.

Last month China Mobile’s chairman said the company was still working out “commercial and technical issues” with Apple but that “good progress was made in preparing for the commercialization of TD-LTE.” Following that report, the often reliable KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo said that Apple was ramping up TDD-LTE supported iPhone models earlier than expected. The new low-cost iPhone, alongside a higher-end next-gen iPhone on China Mobile could help Apple add some significant numbers to its shipments heading into the new year. Kuo said the new devices on China Mobile could possibly account for penetration of 25% and 35% in iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C shipments with around 1.5-2.5M units. That prediction is for Q3 alone, as Kuo expects  even more units to ship as we move into China’s October Golden Holiday and Q4.

On September 10, Apple is expected to launch a new ‘iPhone 5S’ as a full-fledged upgrade to its current iPhone 5 that we reported will include a fingerprint reader, 128GB storage option, and a new gold color option. While that gold color option could help Apple move units to the high-end market in China and India where the color is popular, it’s also expected to debut a brand-new lower-cost iPhone (5C?) that analysts expect will sell for somewhere between $300 – $500. We’ll have to wait for official word from Apple to find out what will happen to its current lineup of iPhones, but it’s likely the company will keep the current iPhone 5, or possibly the iPhone 4S, around as a entry level model largely aimed at the enterprise market like the iPad 2.

Apple’s event in China is set to kick off on Sept 11 at 10:00 AM (CST).

I started a thread on Aug. 15 (which in internet time is like a thousand years ago) where it was leaked that Apple will use the new Qualcomm chipset. There's a bunch of details in the Qualcomm press release that hint at the global phone/TDD-LTE...

The iPhone 5S & 5C are both tri-band. Apple just got an official deal with China mobile for the iPhones , this is good news for us. Can't wait for the announcement on Tuesday.

Sprint still hasn't set employee vacation blackout dates... iDB says it's looking like sprint may release the 5S/5C after verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. :(

Probably no need for Sprint to blackout employee vacation dates just for the iPhone anymore, is there?

I'm curious if the rumored delay might have anything to do with a Sprint tri-band device?

I'm pretty sure its coming at the same time as other carriers.  Sprint might just think they can handle the demand. Since a lot people go to apple store anyways.

3 years if working at a preferred retailer and a corporate store. Sprint does not do offical vacation black outs except for the holiday season. From my experience an hour or two after the announcement mangers will get an email saying to adjust the schedule and that we will be opening earlier.

 

Btw we got a big ass box from Apple that we can't open. We were just told at some point a contractor will come and install the display. I imagine it will be on the Thursday evening before launch.

      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.
