After all that researching and discussing . . I’m keeping my old phone and getting a new battery. Vince talked to AT&T – I didn’t . . and according to him, if we pay up front for the new phone, then we lose some kind of $15/month discount. They want us to do some kind of payment plan and that ends up being $650 in the long run. If we pay $199 up front and lose the $15 discount for two years, it comes to $559. A new phone doesn’t mean that much to me. If I HAD to get a new phone, I’d buy something old and obsolete I guess. No way am I spending $500+ for a cell phone.
We can only use AT&T so . . the old iPhone 4S will be what I use for a while. I may take Vince’s old 5S but I’ll probably just keep using what I have.
