    Dropped my phone again today, hard. Now the front screen is all spider webby just like the back screen. Think it's now time for a new one.

    Sorry to hear brah.

    No joke, I literally just bought a gold 5s unlocked for t-mobile. Gonna go pick it up at my local store shortly.

    I've decided to switch to t mobile. Their unlimited data plan at 70 bucks is way too compelling, given that I pay 90 bucks with att for just 2 gigs. That also includes my 20% corporate discount.

    Noob. I pay $75 with unlimited data with the government employee discount with ATT. I know I will be forced out of this contract soon though.

    Your unlimited plan with att is not truly unlimited since they and verizon start throttling after 5 gigs of usage, or some ridiculous number like that. That's why they discontinued it.

    T mobile throttles you after you use 20 TB of data a month. Lol.

    And to think that att has a 50 gig data plan for 450? :sarcasm:

    I've never used more than 2.4 gb and that was in August when I was streaming a lot of ball games on my phone.

    I was just like you -- barely used data and had very few apps on my iPhone. I definitely underutilized it, but I went on an App Store binge recently and found lots of very useful apps that are media-intensive. Also have a live news streaming app and that shit will eat data like a motherfucker.

    Now I won't have to worry about watching my data usage -- liberating!

    Does internet radio on my phone use data or is that different?

    Wow.

    After rocking a black iphone since 2008, the gold 5s is pretty sweet, but most of all, different. Wanted to switch things up a bit and the gold is fucking awesome and subtle. Love it.

    Now I'm going to jailbreak it, but need to do more research on that.

    My 5s will be black, and beautiful. Can't wait to part with my crippled 4s tomorrow.

    Oh you're coming from a 4s?

    You're really going to like the 5s, then, since it'll be a whole new form factor for you and then some.

    For me, the only novelty is the fingerprint scanner, but I'm seeing a lot of potential uses for it through apps after jailbreaking. For instance, you can use the fingerprint sensor to go to Home, so you don't have to click the actual home button -- just rest your thumb on it and boom.

    I've got a family share with my wife and military discount. Two iphones 4gb data and unlimited everything else with AT&T costing us $170 after taxes and stuff. Before taxes like $150. Lame the discount doesn't apply to the whole bill.



    Don't jailbreak it yet.

    Yes, an ugly white 4s at that. I got it in an emergency situation after its predecessor was dropped in the toilet. White was the only color available at the place I bought it. Good riddens.
