iPhone 6 omnibus thread

Recommended Posts

The sprint buy back website is now showing the same prices as T-Mobile. It's showing $203 for my wife's 5c. That is up from Friday and now matches T-Mobile.

 

Thats all they will offer for a 5c??  My 16gb 5 is quoted at $231...

So what case to get for the 6P? I like the otterbox if it just did not make the phone so much bigger.

With the value of the 6+, I would suggest Otterbox.  I plan to sell the 6+ in a year when the next release comes.  Hopefully the phone will be in the best shape possible and get top dollar for the phone.

Thats a pretty fair trade offer for the 5C.  More then what the average sell price on swappa is right now for a Sprint 5C.  The 5C never really took off and the resale did not hold up compared to the other models.  And Sprint resale always trends on the low side.

 

Last Sold Price $180 Recent Price Average $196 Lowest Current Price $190

Question is how many did Sprint get? I got my order conformation with in two hours of going on sale for the 6 plus. Says it will be shipped within three weeks. Is that the standard response? I guess I will know this week. If I get my tracking number this week I guess I was a lucky one.

Yes. They are having very high numbers for the 6+...I actually think a lot of the pre-orders were for the 6+....this gives me hope that I can walk in on friday and get a 6 :)...

 

Oh, and Sprint is now matching T-Mobile's buy back credit online for my 5s at $351. Excited!

Not sure. I will be finding out if they give me $350 for it on Friday. The phone is in perfect condition...I would say mint condition, other than that damn dent. I don't think they will screw me over though. One time I gave them my broken 4s and they gave me $150 for it....I don't think they were supposed too, but I think he just wanted a sale. 

 

As long as it's above $299....

That's cool.  I may hold on to my 5 as a back up just in case the new phone breaks.

 

I just looked up my order from Saturday on Sprint.  As expected, no shipping date or status update.  I kind of expected it though.

Musical easypay update dates!  Started at Apr 1, 2015 before I paid my device off.  Then to Nov 1, 2014...  Now Jan 1, 2015!

 

Come on Sprint, just update your system completely and let me upgrade!  :D

Just realized I won't be able to *easily check LTE bands when this phone comes in. Here's to hoping Field Test Mode still works and allows us to at least view numerical signal strength rather than "balls" of LTE.

...and they'll get some! The Corporate store near me is opening up at 5 am on Friday. I"ll get there early, get in line and I'm sure I'll get one :) I want a 64 gig one, doesn't matter if it's the 6 or the 6+

Field test mode tells you what band you're on.

I should have said, "easily" check LTE bands. :P

 

*3001#12345#*..... *3001#12345#*.....sigh...

 

Unless perhaps iOS8 opened up Signalcheck functionality? I wonder if MikeJeep has looked into this yet.

I have a dent top right corner of my phone...I've told ya this. Would this restrict me from getting the full $351 or does the phone jus need to turn on, not be cracked, and stuff. The phone itself is mint, except for the dent.

This x1000. I can't find how many times I've been at a red light and my bluetooth so it plays for the speaker...Then you hear the magical ringing of the dial pad. I actually know if I have missed a number because of the specific notes it makes. lmao

There are 3 questions on a buyback.

 

1. Does it power on

2. Is find my iphone off

3. Is the screen cracked or pieces missing.

Makes me wonder if your sales numbers are a pattern.  From speaking to the Sprint rep Saturday morning, They had the same experience with more 6+'s ordered than the 6. If that is true, I may not receive the phone I ordered until November.

1. Yes.

2. No, but it will be when I turn it in.

3. No. The screen is in perfect condition and the phone is literally 2 months old 

 

:) 8 am here I come. They're opening the store an hour early on friday. I plan on being one of the first few customers.

I am legit surprised that the phone is so popular.....I think we have a lot of android people with bigger phones like the note, switching over....As an iPhone user, I am going to be okay with the 6, but the 6+ is still to big enough for me.

      iPhone XS and XS Max are Apple's newest flagship phones, and the successors to Apple's 2017 iPhone X. They have the new A12 Bionic chip, improved cameras and faster FaceID, and come in a beautiful Gold Stainless Steel finish in addition to the Silver & Space Gray options. They are available in the same 5.8" Super Retina display as with the X, and the bigger 6.5" Super Retina. They are available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations.
      Apple added Dual SIM technology to the 2018 iPhone's, with one physical SIM, and one eSIM. (eSIM feature not currently supported by Sprint, but is said to be coming later). These phones also feature IP68 water-resistance (iPhone X was IP67) which gives you protection in water for up to 30 minutes in up to 2m of water.

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:01 AM MST
       
      Many of us enjoy the freedom that rooting or jailbreaking our phones gives. Adding custom ROMs, removing “bloatware” or Carrier IQ, and adding additional controls are just the start. We knowingly take the risk that that we may turn our phone into a brick, and our warranty will likely not cover repair or replacement. But will we knowingly commit a criminal act to unlock our phones?
      Apple has claimed that jailbreaking the iPhone was in conflict with copyright laws. Given the amount of time they spent locking down iOS, it’s no surprise they oppose it. In July 2010, the U.S. Copyright Office eventually decided that jailbreaking and rooting was not a violation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), as long as it was not done with the intent of circumventing copyright. However, this decision was not permanent. If it is allowed to expire next month, jailbreaking and rooting could be considered breach of the DMCA.
      Development websites like XDA started out with the public perception that they were underground gatherings of hackers and pirates. Since the U.S. Copyright Office published the finding that jailbreaking and rooting was not illegal, those development websites have become widely popular and have largely changed the public's perception. Even Steve Kondik, aka “Cyanogen”, creator of the widely popular Android ROM CyanogenMod was hired by Samsung.
      Due to the liberties that millions of us enjoy about to be removed due to the sunseting DCMA, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has begun a campaign to keep our phones free. They are undertaking a campaign to convince the U.S. Copyright Office that we should have the right to unlock not only our smartphones, but our tablets and video game consoles. They have a petition that they will send to the U.S. Copyright Office, and they are asking for Concrete examples of legal uses of jailbreaking that “will help show the Copyright Office why they should renew and expand the exemptions for jailbreaking.”

      Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
      Friday, February 3, 2012 - 2:00 PM MST
       
      The iPhone is something many people see as a status symbol. Many who have never owned one, long for their upgrade date so they can go out and buy the "exclusive" iPhone that they have been denied access to for years. Even some who had the iPhone, and then switched carriers, long to repurchase another. Yes, the iPhone is a well made smartphone with access to a loaded app store, and has many desirable features. But is it really better than Windows Phone, Blackberry or Android models?
      When Apple entered into a contract with AT&T, they remanufactured the RAZR craze and how the artificial scarcity of the device created such huge demand. The RAZR was a good device, and you may argue it was well ahead of other phones at the time of its release, but the other manufacturers caught up quickly. Apple used a similar strategy and it has paid off immensely. The iPhone is now available on the top 3 carriers in the U.S., but is still seen as a status symbol in many circles. As if only a few people have access to it. One could make a strong argument that the Samsung Galaxy SII is a superior smartphone, but still many customers line up to get the iPhone instead, because their inner hoarder says they NEED it, and the products perceived coolness and limited availability only add to the whole experience.
      The concept of artificial scarcity is simple. You take a product that is plentifully available to manufacture in mass, but limit distribution to a limited time, limited area, or in the case of the iPhone, limited retail outlets.
      The strategy has worked perfect for Disney. Why let your movies make the gradual descent to the $3.99 Wal-Mart bargain bin? Just keep "taking them out of the vault" and offering them at full price for a few months every couple years and people pull their credit cards out to pay $17.99 for an 85 year old movie and thank Disney for "allowing" them the opportunity to purchase Snow White. Oh, and you get to be a part of a limited privileged club.
      Another notable example is McDonald's McRib. If it was on the menu full time, many people either wouldn't bother going to McDonalds or would order something else, but artificial scarcity commands us to rush in to McDonalds and get several McRibs at a time because we won't have another chance at it for another year. What do we end up with, besides a belly ache and a reason why we don't normally eat at McDonalds?
      We should be immune to this form of advertising by now, as we are constantly inundated with limited time availability and special edition products all around us. However it is still alive and well here on Planet Earth, because it still works. Big time.
      Can Apple keep the air of exclusivity over its iPhone as it continues to broaden its distribution? Or will smartphone buyers move on to other devices? Only time will tell. But many doubt that Apple will play its hand as well in an era post Steve Jobs.
